It’s another crazy week around here, and yesterday I was so domestic that I barely did any homework (I didn’t have much yesterday anyway). I did laundry, cleaned the bathroom, baked muffins, and cooked this rockin’ sriracha chicken all before ballet, and I felt like SUPERMOM. Minus the mom part, so, just super.
I’ll save any rants and thoughts for tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes. Today, I’m joining the WIAW party to show you all what I ate on Sunday, the day of my last dance company rehearsal ever. EVER. It still hasn’t hit me yet, so I won’t talk about it too much. I could burst out in tears at any second at this point.
Anyway, our last rehearsal before a show always involves running our dances multiple times, so it was a long, tiring day. Here’s what fueled me through teaching religious education and 4.5 hours of groovin’!
Jenn‘s got the linkup for some fabulous eats!
Fuel for proclaiming God’s word, shushing third graders, and picking up paper and pencils off the floor:
Amanda’s oatmeal cookie dough smoothie (plus spinach, minus chia seeds) + side of Greek yogurt. Dipped like so.
Fuel for jumping, running, and turning…all at the same time (aka dancing):
PB & J. Holy moly I hadn’t had one of these babies in such a long time and it hit the spot like no other.
Fuel for more dancing: Carrots and hummus
Post-dance fuel: Greek yogurt, sliced banana, crapton of cinnamon and nutmeg, stevia
Fuel for finishing homework, blogging, cleaning, and chatting with Dad:
Lime-cilantro salmon on spinach + sriracha + avocado toast
The salmon turned out well! It’s always a celebration when I don’t under-season meat. For this one salmon filet, I put on some fresh lime juice (from half a lime), about 2 tsp. honey, sea salt, pepper, and cilantro. Baked at 400*F for 8 minutes (in our small toaster oven).
Fuel for baking: Half of this juicy navel orange
Fuel for sleeping 😉
Sample of homemade apricot-orange Irish soda bread
There ya have it! A busy day’s worth of delicious eats. The PB&J was the highlight, without a doubt. Those will be returning to my life with a vengeance; I bought some new strawberry jam a couple days ago just for the cause. 😀
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
So tell me:
