Quick post my friends. Just got back from the doctor, and everything is looking good thus far. The HEABlet’s heartbeat sounded like music to my ears today. 🙂 Our next appointment will involve a glucose screening to make sure I haven’t developed gestational diabetes. Apparently, I have to drink some kind of sugary liquid as soon as I arrive at the doctor’s office. I asked if I could just eat a Snickers bar instead. Hehe. The nurse said no. 🙁
Anyway, I have another day filled with home projects, errands, and thank you card writing. I’m also trying to squeeze in a few clients this week before we leave town. For those of you that don’t know, I’m a massage therapist, but had to quit working early in my first trimester due to come complications. When those all cleared up, I just felt so awful that I stopped working altogether. However, now that I’m feeling better, I’m starting to see a few clients once again. I love my job, and it feels good to be back!
I have managed to avoid going to the grocery store this week. The pickings around here are slim, but I’ve come up with some creative solutions…
Yesterday, I celebrated Waffle Wednesday with some chocolate ice-cream in a waffle cone. OK, so it was a bowl of chocolate protein ice-cream with two toasted Nature’s Path Flax Plus Waffles with Figs on the side, but just as good.
Nothing like a little waffle dipping action!
Lunch was something new and kind of random…
I toasted two corn tortillas and topped them with a layer of Trader Joe’s refried beans with salsa. I then added a cooked egg to each, but something was missing. They needed enchilada sauce or something. So, I did a quick search and found Gena’s recipe for tomato tahini dressing. Perfect, except I subbed MaraNatha’s sunflower seed butter for the tahini and added just a pinch of guar gum to thicken the mix. This combo was quite delicious – so good in fact, that I think I will have it for lunch again today.
We’re having dinner at a friend’s house tonight, and I’m going to attempt to make a frittata to bring with us. So, many thanks to all of you who sent me recipes on my egg post. Wish me luck. 🙂
Are you a cone or cup kind of person when it comes to ice-cream? My favorite is soft serve in a cake cone. Love that last bite of the cone!
