Don't you love a three day weekend? I do. They're still not long enough but an extra day off is one of my favorite things! I did some cleaning and some yard work. Watched "A Love Song for Bobby Long" which is surprisingly good. I didn't know much about it before renting it and I love it when the movie turns out to be worth it. I never pay much attention to reviews. Cinematography, music, and believable characters. Those are things I look for in a movie and this movie has it all. Click here for a peek.
This weekend I got back in the kitchen and made an awesome quinoa salad. So good I wanted to eat it ALL. I got the recipe a long time ago from Weight Watchers when I was an online member. It doesn't have the nutritional breakdown, but does have the WW points. Here's the recipe:
As usual, I tweaked it some. Like cutting down on the salt and olive oil. I used store brand black olives and less cumin than the recipe listed. That's just the way I roll in the kitchen but you might like it just the way it is. Do try it. Also, I used the quinoa that is already rinsed (as I'm still taking the easy route these days!). The brand is Ancient Harvest Quinoa and you can find it in most stores or here.
Today was "teacher appreciation day" at work. The parents association provided us with a delish lunch from Goode Co. (a great local bbq place) including pecan pie. To make up for the pie I rode my bike this evening. At 7:30 it was really nice out so the ride was great.
Sometimes the unexpected is a good thing. Life is full of the unexpected. We have to be flexible and learn to go with it. Have a great hump day and don't forget to drink your water!
