It’s such a beautiful day outside today! I’m about to go take Niko for a walkie:D
Body pump kicked my boo-tay this morning! I haven’t gone in probably a month, as I’ve just been lifting weights on my own, and I forgot how strenuous endurance strength-training is every once in a while 🙂 I needed it, because there was an abs session at the end, and I’ve been slacking on my abs. It’s pretty much an awesome hour-long weight lifting class that focuses on every muscle in the body. It rocked my socks off.
When I got home from class, I made some eggs in a hole toast to refuel.
I kind a had to scarf it down, because I was meeting a friend at the Farmer’s Market soon.
It was her first time there, and she was amazed at how huge it was. I took some pictures of some cool veggies and pretty sunflowers while I was there.
and bought a HUGE squash.
We had to split afterward, and I headed to the grocery stores. Ugh. People were so annoying today, and I totally went over my $100 budget. Oopsie. Well, at least I know I’ll use the ingredients, thanks to my new meal planning system (I’ll have to show you all the system soon!)
I got a crap ton of groceries, but here are a few things I’m extra-excited about that I bought:
Raw almonds to make almond butter
When I got home and put the groceries away, it was time for lunch. Since the hubski was busy working on his car, I made some burgers on the GF grill. I used cow burger for Shane’s, and turkey burger for mine. I seasoned them each with a mix of jalapeno pepper, cumin, pepper flakes, and garlic powder.
Ahhh this burger was SO good. I was very proud of my grill masta skillz, haha.
Not sure what we’re doing tonight yet. I’ve mentioned seeing the Time Traveler’s Wife to Shane a couple times, but he didn’t seem to in to it and hasn’t mentioned it since, so we’ll see 🙂
Question: What’s your favorite way to make something out of a butternut squash?
