Happy weekend! This was such an off week with all the snow. I didn’t leave my house for almost 48 hours and almost all of my clients and classes were cancelled for the week. I was so ready to finally get out of the house and go teach on Friday afternoon. It was time.
Speaking of a weird week…we had an earthquake last night. I was sitting at my desk a little after 10 p.m. when I felt the whole room start to shake. First I was terrified that one of the huge oak trees in my yard was falling down due to the snow and weather but then it stopped seconds later. My heart was pounding and I instantly went to Twitter (THE place to go for breaking news) and searched “earthquake” and saw that people felt it in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Apparently there was a 4.1 magnitude quake in Edgefield, South Carolina. That’s about 160 miles from Charlotte. I really think that’s the first time I’ve felt an earthquake like that. It was quite unsettling. Have you ever felt an earthquake? Did anyone else feel this one?
Snow and an earthquake in one week in the south…what’s going on here!?
Here’s a quick look at some snow week eats…
I spared you the smoothie pics this week and just shot this one bowl of banana oatmeal with peanut butter. I have kept up with the warm lemon water every morning. Thanks for all your feedback on it and I’ll let you know how it goes for me after a while.
Butternut squash soup and salad. This was the best salad I have made in a long time. Romain, super greens and herb blend with pears, avocado, toasted walnuts, dried cranberries, feta and turkey with homemade honey dijon balsamic.
Tomato and red pepper soup with a wrap. I mixed it up a little with this wrap by adding thinly sliced pears with the turkey, ham, avocado, spinach and havarti. I love adding apples and pears to wraps and sandwiches. Fun little twist.
Turkey burger with havarti, sauteed mushrooms and caramelized onions, roasted sweet potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts.
Since I had the luxury of being home all day on Wednesday due to the snow, I whipped up a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce and let it simmer on the stove for hours. It was the perfect comfort meal with a salad and a glass of wine.
I’ve been making this spaghetti sauce with ground beef, italian sausage and mushrooms for years and years. It’s my #1 fave!
My Valentine’s Day dinner was nothing exciting because I didn’t get home from yoga teacher training until after 10 p.m. At least I had some Reese’s to make up for it!
I’ve lost count of how many of these I’ve eaten this week. I think I’m averaging 3-4 per day. So good.
Have a great weekend!
