Aw. This lunch didnâ€™t turn out quite as I hoped, but it was still pretty tasty.
I was aiming for gooey casserole but ended up with crumbly casserole.
In the mix: brown rice, ricotta cheese, yellow squash, leeks, broccoli, nutritional yeast, egg, and milk. Topped with Havarti cheese. I think the problem was the ricotta cheese â€“ just not gooey enough. Still a good flavor combo, though.
Melon. Melon. MELON!
Something to Talk About
I keep a little list of articles and topics that I find interesting and eventually try to repost most to my blog or Facebook page. However, my list runneth over today! So hereâ€™s a ton of randomness. Iâ€™m sure weâ€™ll find something to talk about!
First of all, who remembers the computer game Space Invaders? So much awesomeness. Anyways, see what I did right there? Yup. Two spaces after my punctuation. Thatâ€™s what I learned was â€˜correctâ€™ â€“ and despite this articles very well argued point, Iâ€™m standing by my point (hahaha). So â€“ what do you think? One space or two?
The Original Girls on the Run
I thought fellow GOTR coaches would LOVE this picture â€“ itâ€™s from 1997 and shows Molly Barker, then 36, with the original 13 GOTR girls. I looked at this picture for a long, long time. Itâ€™s funny how you can look back on a photograph with the power of hindsight and realize what a big deal a particular moment was â€“ who would have ever predicted that Mollyâ€™s program would expand to serve over 1/4 a million girls? Also, I love this picture because I think a lot of us feel like if we donâ€™t have it â€˜figured outâ€™ in our 20s, we never will. Molly didnâ€™t find her career calling until she was 36 â€“ and look where she took it from there.
Energy Efficiency Kit
If youâ€™re a Duke Energy customer, you can get a FREE box of Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs by doing a Home Energy House Call. Heck, I saved probably $20 on the bulbs alone, not to mention the savings in my energy bill. How sweet is that?
Rae told me about this great website â€“ Splish â€“ which sells fun fitness and regular bathing suits. They sell â€œgrab bagsâ€ that range from $17.50 to $35 â€“ you pick the style and size, they pick the print. And the prints are AWESOME. I especially love the Tiger Stripe suit, the Kitty suit, the Fast Bunny suit, the All Business suit, and the Super Woman suit. I will 100% be buying one of these post-baby. It would make swimming laps SO MUCH MORE FUN.
Yâ€™all know I love a good advice column, but the first letter on Mondayâ€™s Dear Prudence takes the vegan cake. Itâ€™s from a Grandma who fed her (vegan) granddaughter meat and cheese, and when the daughter-in-law freaked out, Grammie called Child Protective Services to report her horrendous vegan neglect. Now, she canâ€™t understand why CPS isnâ€™t acting. I kid you not. Read and feel thankful that, no matter how crazy your family is, they hopefully arenâ€™t that nutso. Hopefully.
Aaaand discuss. One space or two? GOTR love and affection? Sweet bathing suits? And overbearing grandparents? Go!
