Yesterday started bright and early in the Haupert household, and some of us were a tad more enthusiastic about it than others.
Look at that pathetic pug lip! Oh my goodness… haha!
Breakfast was “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats with a scoop of sunflower butter and a glass of iced Dandy Blend with almond milk. Mal and I ate breakfast together and, while we ate, we made a checklist of everything we need to do before we leave for Seattle (i.e. reserve a rental car, book taxi to airport, drop Murphy at the dog sitter, pack, print boarding passes, Google CrossFit boxes in Seattle… you know, all of the important stuff).
I spent the rest of the morning work, work, working, and then broke for lunch a little early. My stomach was a-grumbling, so I reheated some leftover Skillet Sweet Potato, Sausage, and Spinach Hash. Delicious X 10.
After I finished eating lunch, I whipped out the crockpot to prepare dinner.
On the menu: Pot Roast with Cider-Maple Gravy and Mashed Butternut Squash. I love finding new recipes, so I’m constantly tearing out pages from magazines and other publications—this one came from a little booklet in my swagbag at Fitbloggin’.
Mmm… butternut squash… my favorite!
Once dinner was (slow) cooking, I started to pack for Seattle. You’d think with all of the traveling I do, I’d be a pro at packing, but I still kind of stink at it. It takes me forever to plan outfits and figure out exactly what I should pack, so I typically give myself at least a couple of days to get it all together. I usually end up changing my mind a bunch and remembering random things to pack. I dunno, it seems to work.
A little while later, I needed to head into Boston for my doctor’s appointment, so I sliced up a banana and added some almond butter and cinnamon as a snack.
Question of the Day
What’s your favorite crockpot recipe?
Feel free to leave a link or two in the comment section. I know I love finding new crockpot recipes, so I figured you guys would too!
