Last Kombucha Standing

Hi guys! Thanks for all the congrats on my blog’s first anniversary/blogiversary (if you will.) I was pretty stoked, haha. Now I can say “last year today, I/we…” and have a clear picture of what went down. It’s the simple things, people.

Anyway, what a great 4th of July! After training and getting in a little cardio and weights myself, I was in need of some fuel. I bought some tempeh over the weekend, and had been wanting to try it out with jam. I’ve seen it so many times on other blogs, but have only eaten tempeh savory. Let me tell ya, it was a winner!

Before Independence Day festivities, I ran some errands, and cleaning relaxed. One of my finds was some kombucha!

This is pretty exciting because kombuchas being taken off store shelves for its alcohol content, and I grabbed the last two bottles standing at Fresh Market!

Later, we finally headed over to a friend’s house for a barbeque.

I brought red, white, and blue green cookie dough balls (Averie’s recipe) and sweet and savory coleslaw (which will be on the recipes tab soon. I’m slowly but surely chipping away at it:) )

We had a great time at the cookout – good food, wine, and company. Actually, I should say DELICOUS food. Take a look at these kabobs (TWSS heh)

I also tried lychees for the first time. They peel like an orange, look like a strawberry, feel like a grape after peeling (or some other unnamed object) and taste like melon!

Pretty weird!

When it got dark, we drove over to the park to check out the fireworks.

The show was actually pretty weak sauce. It lasted all of 10 minutes! Feeling the effects of the economy I suppose. We headed home shortly after because while many people have today off, I had a client to train at 6:00 a.m! Luckily, I woke up feeling not too shabby at 5 this morning, and headed on in, trained, and then stayed for a 4 mile sweaty tready run of my own.

Starved, I ate over night 25 minute oats.

And then headed to the Dr’s office to get some bloodwork done *cringe*

I had grand plans of finishing my recipe’s tab afterward, but I came home to an office that looked like this:

The husband apparently caught the organizing bug, heh

So I fueled up:

Veggie baked beans, potato, carrot, and onion mix, and aforementioned sweet and savory coleslaw.

And am now going to go help him tackle this impromptu project.

Wish me luck ;)           

 

What were you doing on this day, July 5th, last year? I went to my parents’ anniversary party and then to another cook out! Fun times.
