Only Wednesday?

Don’t know what it is, but this week is seeming really long already.

Nothing too exciting today – woke up this morning feeling really tired and like I was just dragging myself around. I was a little concerned it might be a reaction to the flu shot – you can experience flu-like symptoms apparently. I did end up taking some Advil this morning, but by the end of the day I was feeling better.

Started my day with the usual…




Mid-morning I was really hungry. I raided my desk drawer and came out with a Key Lime LaraBar.


For lunch, I had Sweet Potato & Black Bean Mole with Quinoa.


I think I actually made these portions too big – I had a hard time finishing it. Tasted good, just very filling.

I did slightly wimp out in the exercise department today. I did do the first new Circuit workout for December, but I only did 2 times through. That felt like enough to wipe me out today, and my arm is still sore. Short workout is better than no workout.

Then I came upstairs to make supper. Had a little snack while I got things going:


I should stop buying this stuff – when it’s there, I can’t leave it alone.

For dinner I made a sort of Frittata type thing. I chopped a small red onion and red bell pepper…


Which went in a medium skillet with a little coconut oil. Meanwhile, I started cooking some of these in the grill pan…


Then I chopped some flat leaf parsley.


I whisked some eggs with Tobasco, salt, pepper and a little oregano, and added the parsley; this mixture went in the pan with the onions and peppers. I stirred things around until it started to set.


Then I topped with some tomatoes and another little sprinkle of salt, pepper & oregano…


And some cheese.


Then the skillet went into the oven at 300 degrees. While I waited for the sausages and frittata to finish cooking, I sliced some Rosemary Focaccia.


The frittata came out of the oven looking like this…



And that was dinner.


I wish that I’d had better lighting for the frittata photos, because the contrasting colors were so pretty. The whole thing looked very fresh. It was also pretty tasty.

I ate all of my frittata portion and focaccia bread, but I only ate one of the sausages. The cats got the other one. I’m just not a sausage fan. Husband likes sausages though, and he thought these ones were pretty good.

Pound Cake for dessert.

I think the frittata looks beautiful. I'm a little intimidated by that parsley knife though.

And hey! It's Thursday! We're almost there :)
