I know I don't usually post twice in one day, but on some occasions, I just have to share my excitement...guess what came the other day?? My Kindle!
Of course the second I got home I plugged it in to try it out. I was actually so prematurely excited about it's arrival that I went a little crazy and bought a bunch of books before it even came. I also bought a fancy red case for it so it doesn't get banged up in my purse. Pretty isn't it? I can't wait to read my first book on it! For those of you who don't know me in real life, I love gadgets (I have four ipods, that must tell you something). I'm actually surprised it took me so long to hop on this bandwagon, as I have every other gadget there is practically.
In other news, I figure it's been a while since I've done a whole day of food for you guys, so here goes! Yesterday's breakfast was a yogurt bowl, with a banana, a squirt of honey, chobani vanilla yogurt, and banana granola. This is one of my favorite breakfasts. It doesn't hold me over that long though, so I usually wait until I get to work to eat it since there is only a few hours until lunch.
No, I did not eat that entire Chobani container in one sitting. It was only 1/3 full when I added the banana and granola. Just don't want you guys thinking I'm a pig, even though I'm sure you already do. For lunch is one of my new favorites, a greek wrap. Since I can't seem to find thick wrap bread anywhere, I used naan. In the naan is chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, and greek dressing. I also usually add kalamata olives when I have them, but I was out of them yesterday. It was still amazing. If you make this, I highly recommend heating both the naan and the chicken. It's just like what you would get at a real Greek sandwich shop.
Dinner was a new recipe that ended up being a success, so I promise to recreate it and post it for you guys. It was seasoned chicken with a mustard sauce glaze. The glaze was awesome. I actually ended up having extra glaze, so I plan on either using it as a salad dressing or a sandwich spread later in the week or this weekend. On the side I had some steamed broccoli. The boy had twice as much chicken and broccoli as well as rice on the side (he can EAT). Plus I make him eat a lot more just so I don't look like a huge pig for eating what I can only guess is about 9 ounces of chicken (what can I say, the sauce was REALLY good).
As dinner was winding down, the smell of chicken could no longer be ignored, and this little scavenger jumped up on the dining room table to see if she could sneak a bite. I'm a sucker so of course I gave her one. For whatever reason she has always been a little skinny so I try to feed her what she likes in hopes that she will put on a few pounds. So far no luck, but at least the chicken makes her happy. You would think I starve her (I don't).
For dessert, the boy picked up a strawberry shortcake from Peaches and Cream in Chelsea during his travels in the ambulance yesterday. It was divine. Strawberry shortcake is his favorite and is one of mine also and this certainly was worth every. single. calorie. Oh my yum.
The Boston area is due for yet ANOTHER snow storm tonight, but luckily I already got the green light to work from home if conditions were bad, so I will most certainly be staying home. Either way I will still have to shovel out the damn car and I am dreading it. I am so over winter at this point, as I'm sure all of my fellow New Englanders are. But at least the weather will give me an excuse to curl up on the couch with my kittens and my Kindle :)
Do you own a Kindle or a Nook? If not, do you want one?
