Today was a really laid-back day. I had a little trouble falling asleep last night, so I made sure I didn’t set an alarm so I could sleep in
For some reason I haven’t been very hungry today at all (which barely ever happens!), so I just had two small meals.
blackberries & scrambled eggs with spinach
I had some extra spinach lying around because I was supposed to put in the Southwestern Quiche I made a few days ago, but I totally spaced out and forgot about it. So now I have a whole bag and no recipe for it! What’s a girl to do? … makes lots and lots of scrambled eggs.
Zatarain’s butter & garlic rice with roasted broccoli
Dinner was pretty good… Zatarain’s Butter & Garlic rice is one of new favorites! I got a box because there was a good deal with coupons a month or two ago, and I’ve kept on buying it ever since. Each box makes 2 servings, and each serving (1 cup, cooked) is 200 calories.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the roasted broccoli, though. I tossed it in a Ken’s Herb & Garlic Marinade, but I wasn’t a fan. It made it taste like Italian dressing! Ick. Well, ick with spicy rice and broccoli, not ick on lettuce. Next time I’ll stick with olive oil.
I’m getting my very own wheelchair! (Sorry for the awful pic, it’s from the Craigslist ad). I’ve been wanting one for a while, and since I’m going to be going to New York City with my mother on Tuesday, it became a little bit more of a necessity.
I’m not at the point where I need a wheelchair every day, but I do want to be able to do fun things like go to the mall and walk around the city, things that I can’t currently do anymore. (Speaking of which – I fully updated my Foot Pain page with all of the current information about what I’ve been going through. It really needed to get done!)
Also… I’m going to New York City! I forgot to mention it before My mom’s taking me to see my absolute favorite singer of all time, Missy Higgins. She’s an Australian artist, but she’s coming to the US to celebrate the release of her new album (which I’ve been patiently awaiting for years!!).
It was super nice of my mom to agree to take me, especially because she’ll probably end up having to push me around a lot, haha. She’s the best!
So since I’m going to be super busy on Tuesday… does anybody want to do a guest post for me? I know it’s short notice, but I’d love anybody to volunteer
Have you been to NYC before? What’s your favorite place to visit? My family went a lot when I was younger because it’s only 4 hours away and my parents love it there. I love going to see Broadway musicals!
