I wanted to curl up with a good book, but went grocery shopping and then forced myself to get in a little treadmill time.
My husband grilled salmon for us tonight while I made oven roasted asparagus with parmesan and lemon juice. Unfortunately I had already promised my picky eaters that I would make one of their new favorites:
I'm not sure my finished product looks quite as good as the picture above on the Cooking Classy website, but it still tastes amazing. So, we had two entirely different meals prepared tonight, and a ton of the pasta dish in the fridge to eat as leftovers.
My new challenge is trying to follow the Whole30 program for the next month. I've read up on it on their website and have the guidelines printed out which I referred to, but basically this diet/lifestyle plan eliminates all sugar from your eating, as well as carbs. However, there is still the option to eat fruit.
I'm anticipating the first three or four days won't be fun (well, let's face it. None of the days may be fun. But, I'm hopeful it won't be so horrible after I get going). And I'm also hoping that by posting this on my blog, I won't give up right away, either.
This week we have more soccer, the end of the track season, and my last week of library classes.
Last night Middle Sister had her first ever school dance to attend. Since she will be in middle school next year, the 6th-8th graders invite the upcoming sixth grade class to the spring dance.
Here she is (on the far left) with her friends right before their big night:
Enjoy what's left of your Mother's Day!
