Yesterday was a great day. Around 9 a.m. UPS delivered a big heavy box to my doorstep. I opened it to discover more avocados than I know what to do with. Heaven!
Chiquita is moving their global headquarters to Charlotte and I am lucky enough to have blog reader in the Chiquita Avocados division. Last week he left a comment asking if I’d like a shipment of avocados. Yes, yes, yes!
Little did I know that I would be receiving two giant bags full. I must have over 50 avocados. He told me that they will stay good for almost a month if I store them in the fridge but I’ll definitely be sharing with family and friends. I think this will also be a great time to experiment with some new avocado recipes and creative uses. Any good ones to share? Please?
I got right to work using my avocados last night. I like to start pulling things out of the fridge and figure out how I can use them together. Last night I heated some leftover refried beans and then sauteed chicken, onions, grape tomatoes and spinach. I layered the beans on a corn tortilla and then topped it with the chicken mixture and avocados. It was a good creation!
Breakfast this morning was a big bowl of oatmeal while I got my life organized. I was a woman on a mission and not only got a ton of work done but also got laundry done and the house completely picked up. There is not a misplaced item of clothing to be found. Now, we’ll see how long that lasts. I’m terrible about tossing things on the table or bed and leaving them there but it seriously stresses me out when I walk in the house and there’s stuff everywhere. The oatmeal featured bananas, blueberries and peaches.
I packed my lunch to take to work. It’s been a crazy busy day full of exciting work for our new location. My latest project is trying to get our website designed so I’m really enjoying that. I made a big salad with more avocados, goat cheese, local strawberries, broccoli slaw, mixed greens, almonds and tomatoes. I also had some Wholesome Goodness Multigrain & Flax Tortilla Chips and a pear with peanut butter later in the afternoon.
I want to share a cute new Lululemon tank with you.
It’s a new style called the Daily Tank. It’s basically a spinoff of the Cool Racerback but with straight straps and a scoop back.
I love the open back. It’s perfect for showcasing a cute sports bra. I bought it in the flash color. Several of the girls in the store were telling me that they have actually worn this tank out with white jeans. It’s super cute. One note about the fit, it’s long and the straps are pretty long too so try it on if you can.
Off to teach and practice some yoga. Have a good night!
