A Day of Delicious Food

Memorial Day weekend went by way too quickly. It seems like they always do! But it was relaxing and fun. Now come on 4th of July!! Which reminds me, I have some planning to do!

For breakfast, I ate Cheerios with 1/2 of a sliced banana along with milk.

It’s always hard to get going after a holiday weekend, but I did what needed to be done and signed in to work. While working, I sipped on an iced latte.

On my break, I ate a light cheese stick.

And a 50 calorie bag of Pop Chips.

For lunch, I ate a salad with lettuce, tomato, avocado, chicken, a boiled egg, sharp cheddar, cashews and light ranch.

So good! I finished it up with FF/SF butterscotch pudding.

And then I got to work on Job #2. I spent the entire afternoon working on stories and getting photos, but I had fun while doing it! I also love that I can spend most of my time working out in my porch. Open-mouthed smile

For supper, I had grilled chicken, butternut squash, and Texas toast with rhubarb jam.

The chicken was SO good. I marinated it in this:

I also had a side salad with spinach, strawberries, blueberries, almonds and raspberry vinaigrette.

After that, we headed to donate blood for the first time. I was nervous, but it went ok! It was basically a pint of blood—that’s a lot of blood! Hubby donated too. He got pretty light headed, but he was ok after resting a bit. We will do it again!

  1. So in the states is it true that you get money for donating blood? Not saying that is why you did it!

    More people need to donate their blood. Good for you!

    1. No, I didn't get paid for it, just donated. But I think you can get paid at some places... but that's kind of weird!
