Farmshare Friday

Hey everyone and welcome to the weekend! Unfortunately I had a house full of construction workers today so I was stuck inside while they replaced our door for 3 hrs. Fun times.

BREAKFAST:

Special K Oats and Honey with skim milk and blueberries, a hard boiled egg and a DELICIOUS cup of coffee.

These k-cups were part of my birthday present and I couldn’t wait to try it. It’s seriously more like a dessert than a coffee! It smells absolutely incredible and tastes even better. It tasted like I was drinking a melted raspberry truffle. I drink my coffee black so sometimes my k-cups taste a bit bitter. Not this one. Ugh so good! I am definitely gunna have to hide these from Nolan. :-)

LUNCH:

The rest of my penini from yesterday and a bowl of chicken noodle soup that my mom made. :-)

After lunch, then men finally finished the install and took off. I was able to get a quick run in at Cushing before tutoring started. It was only 2 1/2 miles but it felt good to get out.

I did some serious cleaning today in prep for the workers, and came across about 10 magazines. Before recycling I did some creative clipping and put together a little inspiration board.

My board is filled with words of encouragement and stability. And food of course! I can use all the motivation I can get and hopefully this will serve that purpose of encouraging me to push forward.

I need to pay special attention to “willpower” “motivation” and “De-clutter”.  :-)

I had a very strange revelation today. Right after I finished cleaning the apartment, I immediately felt calm, and was craving some healthy foods. I know that sounds bizarre but whenever the house is a mess, I feel blah and tend to snack more. When the house is clean, I am more patent and willing to take a few minutes to put a healthy meal together.  Does anyone else ever feel that way?

Today we got our 6th shipment from Bobbin Farm and man was it a great one!

Much less greens, and much more of the good stuff!

I am so excited to have some fresh cherry tomatoes. It’s one of my absolute favorite veggies. When I was growing up my grandfather had a big garden and I used to sneak in and steal all the tomatoes. :-)

Have you ever had ground cherries? You rip open the little pouch and there is a sweet little cherry inside. This is why we wanted to do a farm share- we get to try new things that we would never ever buy!

I can’t wait to get cooking!

 

Question:

What is your favorite vegetable?

      What time do you shut off the link connection? I tried to last week but we don’t get our shipment until 6.
