Ok, I admit, I didn’t go to Body Pump. I slept in. When I finally woke up, I woke up to the sound of thunder. Thunder? I listened again. That’s either thunder or a LOT of rumbly trucks going by. Even my dog, who is so laid back was looking around wondering what all the ruckus was. When we got up to investigate, sure enough, there was a storm a brewing. However, 15 minutes later, it had passed by at things were bright and sunny again!
Let’s rewind just a little bit. Last night, I headed downtown to the Basque festival with Sara and two of our friends. It was fun listening to music, catching up and of course eating authentic cuisine!
Authentic music. There’s two of them under the white tent. One is wearing a green shirt. See them? It’s like Where’s Waldo?
Some sort of wooden instrument. Sounded sort of island-y. They actually came from Colorado to perform at the festival!
Kyla and Sara enjoying some croquettas. Mmm.. fried cheesey goodness.
I got myself a lamb sandwich with sauteed onion and red pepper. Yum!
Some mornings, I forgo breakfast and skip right to brunch. But this morning, I was feeling like some yogurt, granola and peach. With some green tea of course.

My plan today was to clean out the fridge. Lunch was the rest of my yellow farmer’s market beans and a meatball burrito. Yes, you read that right.
I’d been enjoying some homemade bean burritos for lunch, they’re such an easy fix! I just take a can of refried beans, add some green chilies and zap it in the microwave. However, I didn’t have quite enough beans so I cut up a few left over meatballs that needed to get eaten and stuffed those in too. It doesn’t look too exciting but was quite satisfying.
I also had a simple spinach salad with feta and grape tomatoes.
I’ve been lacking in the vegetable department but I definitely made up for it today!
Dinner was a new twist for me on a sweet potato.
I added some Bees Knees PB & Co. Mmm!
Here’s an interesting tidbit for you: when I was younger, I was allergic to tomatoes, nuts and citrus fruits. Thankfully, I outgrew my allergies. To this day, however, peanut butter is something that isn’t a big deal to me. I like it, but I guess I’m one of the few who isn’t crazy about it!
Tomorrow is running day!

I’m trying to figure out Google reader, anyone have any tips? Please?!?
