It's amazing how long a to-do list can become when you've been too busy to deal with normal things for nearly 4 weeks. While I was determined to make progress on the list, I also wanted to soak up the day and enjoy some sleep and relaxation as well. Aside from the fact that the day passed way too quickly, it was a great day!

It might be the middle of August, but it was a beautiful 79 degrees this morning.
|Afternoon nourishment: Salmon salad, crackers with herb cheese, hydration, and a good book.|
Now if only I could have kept my eyes open long enough to get past page 1.
Oh well, I've never regretted a nap!
For the first time in 2 weeks, I was actually in need of some food to cook for myself at home. My refrigerator contained a variety of condiments, rice milk, a single container of yogurt, flax seeds, spinach, and an apple. Not exactly dinner worthy. I must say I was very excited to make a trip to the grocery store! I love the process of wandering the isles and finding great deals, and have been known to frequent the store a couple times each week. Can you believe I hadn't been to the grocery store in 3 weeks!?!
Tonight's meal was compliments of one of my favorite cookbooks:
|Do yourself a favor and add this book to your collection ASAP!|
|Looks delicious, right?|
|My version. Lots of prep work, but incredibly delicious! My favorite tofu dish I've created.|
