WIAW, Not Really Feeling It...

I haven't been blogging much for the last week. Sometimes life just gets in the way. Today has left me feeling pretty blue. With all the sadness of Boston, I have a few friends dealing with medical issues involving their loved ones, and it has all left me really wanting some good news.

The good news I was hoping for didn't happen so overall my day has been blah. Watching the endless weather coverages of storms and tornados seems to be making it worse.

There was also a suspicious truck that caused a scare not too far from my office this morning, and I drove by as they were blocking off another street downtown because of a suspicious package as I was leaving work this afternoon. I am kinda feeling like the whole world has gone crazy.

Even my treadmill sprints and rowing this morning haven't been enough to pull me out of my Wednesday funk. So, lets try distraction, shall we?


How about a little WIAW? Honestly, I have no idea what I ate this week.

First up we have lunch from Friday. I took a break from all the cookie baking and we got some takeout from O Asian Fusion. Veggie lo mein and spring rolls. Yum. Is made a repeat on Sunday for lunch when I ate the other half.

If you bake 700 cookies for a charity event, you might have leftovers. That being said, I think I have eaten about 500 cookies since Friday. Sparkly sugar cookies with dark chocolate almond milk. This looks so good I might have to walk into the kitchen for a repeat now.

I will wait until I finish my post.

I was browsing around on Pinterest and came across a new recipe that looked simple so I decided to give it a try. No one at my house eats broccoli so this was all for me.

One cup quinoa, two cups broccoli and 1 3/4 cup of veggie stock. Brought it to a boil and simmered for 15 minutes until all the liquid was absorbed. Then stirred in a cup of white extra sharp cheddar and some salt and pepper.

Couldn't be easier, and it's full of good stuff.

So there you have it. Nothing earth shattering, but I actually ate some new things this week.

For now I will leave you with this.

Josh and the crazy dogs. Rocky is terrified and Penny is interested in the storm as it comes in. About two seconds after I took this she laid down on Josh's legs and now has her eye on the tv. I think she is hoping that Gary England is going to turn into a dog, a horse or maybe a swimming event. She really loves to watch those sorts of things. Crazy dog.

We could be spending some time in the storm shelter as the storms move in. That will sure help my mood.

Here is to tomorrow being a new day. Breathe in. Breathe out.
