Hello! How’s it going? Are you running strong? Eating healthy? Repeating yourself because your mom can’t hear you on the phone?
Well, hopefully everything is great. And if it’s not I’ll distract you with a mystery. Help me solve these random acts!
First, let’s talk about running and eating…
I’m enjoying the cool weather in Southern California for now. It’ll be HOT before we know it. So I started the day with an 8 mile run and some strength training at home courtesy of Beach Body on Demand.
But on my run I saw …
Yes, just a microwave sitting there waiting to be scooped up and taken home. Isn’t this random?
Who did this?
I had a major fail while making breakfast.
For some reason the blender cup was NOT fitting on the Ninja blender base. I tried to screw on the lid really tight and kept trying it. Nope.
Then I realized I put the lid on at a slant so it wasn’t on correctly. Oh! But when I tried to get it off I couldn’t. I had put it on so tight and put it on the wrong way it was completely stuck. I tried and tried to get it off but it wouldn’t budge.
I was getting super frustrated and knew I didn’t have the strength to screw it off so I just had to accept I would have to throw out the smoothie ingredients and bang it on the side of the sink. I had it filled all the way to the top so I knew if I hit it against the counter or something it would just knock the lid off but make a huge mess.
Yep, I hit it on the sink a few times hard and the top came off. Yeah!
Luckily that worked and I made another one.
I made a bunch of sweet potatoes in the Crockpot for some meal prep help. I really do recommend making them this way. They come out so sweet and juicy – add some candied pecans and/or whipped cream and it could be dessert. (How to make sweet potatoes in the Crockpot here.)
Here’s a picture of Vegas’ tail because it’s cute.
I saw something Instagram about using actual pie crust to make a graham cracker topping for yogurt.
Who did this??
Me. I did it.
I intended to make a coconut cream pie for Mother’s Day. I took all the ingredients for the DIY Salad Bar to my parents’ house but forgot the pie crust! It as fine because we had so much other food – no one missed it. But that left me with a pie crust at home. And because I’m clever I used it as a yogurt topping.
Dinner was salad, a chicken patty and a Crockpot sweet potato. This is a super massive bowl. Trust.
Dinner should always be paired with wine. I took a wine suggestion from my drunk manatee and went with Rose.
Dessert was chocolate covered strawberries courtesy of a special someone called “Manager’s Special” at Ralphs. They were $.99. Boom. I’m pretty sure they were leftover Mother’s Day goodies and I’m A-okay with that.
Speaking of Ralph’s…
When I went grocery shopping earlier I walked slowly through the bakery area saying “Hi” to my friends = Carbs.
I noticed something weird in the bread case…
Someone full on took a bite of a roll and put it back.
Who did this??!!
Question: No seriously, who took a bite of that bread?
I’m not even mad, I kinda just want to know the person who’s blood sugar was low enough that they needed a bite of bread like it was an emergency.
