(should be interesting to see what google searches arise as a result of THIS title!)
I can’t say I’m terribly proud of this fact, but I can be a bit juvenile, and as a result, there are few things funnier during the summer harvest than rude and amusing shaped fruit and vegetables. (yup, I’m a 15 year old boy in a 40 something woman’s body)
My work friend Doris and I can often be very silly, and try to find humour is our sometimes VERY unfunny work days. I’m grateful every day for her laughter and today, the laughs continued. DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU…..But look what Doris harvested from her Mom’s garden!!

Dirty carrots! And I’m not talking about the dirt from the ground. Ah, ha, ha… I especially like the “come hither pin-up carrot” legs on the right. Doris, thanks for the laughs!!! Zero point vegetables haven’t been this funny for a long, long time!!! And we move on…
My regular yoga instructor was back today, so it was an easier workout this morning. Good all the same, but I was REALLY tired and basically just went through the motions of the class. However, I went, so I’ll pat myself on the back for that – that 5:15am alarm was painful this morning!
Breakfast at my desk was my standard 1/2 cup greek yogurt, rhubarb/strawberry sauce and 1/2 cup brown rice crisps.
I also had my apple cider vinegar concoction. Is it doing anything? Hmm…not sure. I DID just ask Dennis if I was glowing, and he said “yes”, so I guess it is!! :) (Good answer D!)
Doris and I went out with our “soon to be departing from our workplace” friend Sharon for lunch today. (I skipped weigh in, because it’ll be the last chance for the three of us to have lunch before Sharon goes. Weigh ins are important, friends are MORE important!!) Here is a photo of the three of us. Yup, I’m there!
Love the plaque that is outside of the restaurant.
We went to a new taco place that has JUST opened up. Already the lineups are out the door and demand is high. Why? Because they’re freakin’ delicious!!!! They’re small, so you can have as many or as few as you need to be satisfied. They have ALL kinds of options for toppings, I had 1 grilled fish, one pork with pineapple and a mushroom and chipotle. I had some hot pickles on the side. SOOOO yummy, fresh and healthy. I likely over estimated the points at 12 for the whole lunch.
I took 1/2 cup quinoa salad and some cherry tomatoes for an afternoon snack.
We buzzed over to our friend Clint’s place after work. Clint has yet again loaded us up with greens from his lovely garden. Today, we came home with kale, lettuce and chard. Thanks AGAIN Clint, look forward to cooking/eating it all.
When we got home, we had a few Chip In’s because we were hungry.
Eventually, we had turkey sausages (from Victoria) in weight watchers baguettes, an arugula salad with blueberries, tortilla strips and Bolthouse Thousand Island dressing and my home-made potato salad. (made with potatoes (no kidding! :) ), celery, scallions, greek yogurt, mustard and relish.
So that’s Thursday. One more “get up” and the weekend is here. And this isn’t just a weekend, or even a long weekend, it’s the start of my one week staycation!!! Bring it on!!!!
