How Was Your Labor Day?

September 6, 2016

I hope that you all were able to enjoy a long weekend, and if you did not have a three day weekend, I hope you were able to at least enjoy some time off, from Laboring.

Me? I had these grandiose plans of knocking out a big “to do” list and having it complete by 5:00. Then I was going to relax, grill a steak, watch Netflix and sip on a glass of wine. At 7:30 or so, I finished my list, then I was cranky because it took the whole day to get done what I wanted to get done, and I never did get outside for a walk, and I still needed to make dinner.

Here’s the good news. My whole house is clean, the laundry is all done, the fridge is stocked, I grilled my steak and sipped on a glass of wine, after dinner I showered and I did watch one episode of a crazy show that I am loving on Netflix (Shameless) and I was asleep before 10:00 pm. 

The scale said 171 this morning, so I’m in a great mood and ready to get this day started! I hope you have a great day too!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 10 SP

A plate of yellow and white. A simple Hash made with Yellow Onions, Yellow Bell Peppers and White Sweet Potato. I added in some cooked Turkey Bacon and topped this with two Soft Boiled Eggs. A side of peaches and fresh figs.

Have you had a Fresh Fig before???



Lunch – 5 SP

Leftover Blackened Salmon Caesar from the weekend. Salmon, Romaine and 1 tsp Caesar Dressing.

As I was walking to the trash can, I realized that I didn’t take a picture, so I snapped this. You know what Salmon looks like though, right? 🙂



Dinner – 15 SP

Grilled Flank Steak Salad – Wine

I used this Flank Steak Marinade on my steak the day before and let it marinade overnight. I use Trina’s Creamy Garlic Vinaigrette Dressing. For last nights salad, I just started pulling things out of the fridge that sounded good on a steak salad.

Leftover variety of Tiny Potatoes, leftover grilled Asparagus, Avocado. Tomatoes.

    Ha Ha. Well, I just washed them and sliced them and ate them. I have seen a lot of recipes using them, but I decided that I ought to just give them a taste before I put them in a recipe. I liked them, but I do think that I like them dried better. It was sweet, but maybe a bit soft for me. I may have also picked out some that were just too ripe?

    Try one and let me know what you think!

  3. Can you tell me what I do with a fig to eat it?

  4. I knew you would labor the day away but you feel good today and so it was worth it.
