Did you know yesterday was National Dog Day? I had no less than 10 people text or ask me in person where my post was. It appears I’m at “crazy dog lady” status with my friends. I finally got it together and posted one on Instagram around 10:30 last night. Haha.
I do have to admit that hot on the heels of the crazy amount of “first day of school” pictures that overwhelmed my news feed at the beginning of this week, that National Dog Day was a breath of fresh air. 🙂
Here are a few things I’ve been eating this week!
I met a friend at Sunflour for breakfast yesterday and this egg, cheddar and avocado on sourdough rocked my world. It was perfect.
The morning glory muffins at Sunflour are one of my favorite things ever so I got one to bring home with me and ate it for breakfast this morning!
It’s been all salads for lunch this week. I loved today’s Greek-inspired mixture of spinach, garbanzo beans, yellow tomatoes, feta, cucumbers, pine nuts, avocado and sliced burgundy okra. My favorite farmer gave the the idea to slice raw okra on salads. He said they were like croutons. While I think the crouton thing was a bit of a stretch, they do add a nice crunch.
This was the ugliest dinner and I considered not posting it but it was so good I have to. I sauteed pattypan squash, eggplant, potatoes and mushrooms and then tossed them with pesto and Italian sausage that I bought at the farmers market. It was one of those throw together meals that totally surprises you.
Last night I cooked flank steak and marinated it in a soy/lime/ginger mixture. I served it with roasted okra with feta and Sriracha aioli, tomatoes and corn. I am reaching burnout level similar to end of season brussels sprouts burnout with okra right now.
I’m embracing SnapChat and I’ve posted a story every day. Most are of the girls but today I posted my workout. It was sweaty! Follow me @jendecurtins.
This Spotify playlist was on point last night for my yoga class.
And this quote totally made my morning! 🙂
Off to take a yoga class!
Did you participate in the National Dog Day posting frenzy?
Do you judge the taste of food by its appearance? (It’s okay, I totally do!)
