My fellow Americans – do you LOVE the long weekend thang or what? Even though I’m planning to work, the Fourth is just such a fun holiday! It’s like summer break.
My day was filled with writing, working at the clinic, walkin’ pups, and wetting my whistle (I heart alliteration). I got a peanut butter slam for breakfast.
Oh – and I did something fun for lunch. Have you ever steamed your own beets? I usually buy the pre-steamed beets from the refrigerated section but thought I’d figure out how to cook my own.
I just threw a few scrubbed beets in a big pot of water and cooked them until they were tender (probably 25 minutes). Then, I let them cool down and rubbed off their skin using my fingers.
Chilled and sliced on top of my salad. With the perfect complements – creamy balsamic (the Simply Dressed brand) and goat cheese.
Lots of writing and EnviroKids Organic PB Panda Puffs later, I called it a day as far as work goes… There are only so much words I can put out on a weekend.
The Husband and his sister requested that I make the famous Mmmm Sauce for dinner. I like how Mmmm Sauce is considered the entrée! In the mix: carrots, more greens mix, chickpeas and kidney beans, and loads and loads of cilantro-laced Mmmm Sauce.
I think it’s going to be an early night. But I think early Saturdays are the best part of a long weekend… especially after a late Friday!
