THANK YOU for all of your wonderful breakfast ideas on my previous post! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. Now I have tons of new breakfasts to try out. You guys are awesome. Thanks, again!
After breakfast yesterday morning, I got my Sunday Monday Cook-up on. I usually do all of my prepping on Sunday for the upcoming week, but I was at the Wellness by the Water Retreat all day, so I did my cooking yesterday. I cooked and mashed butternut squash and red potatoes, roasted broccoli and summer squash, and hard-boiled a half dozen eggs.
I find that if I cook up all sort of goodies and have them ready to go in the refrigerator, I tend to make healthier choices all week long.
Do you do a weekly cook-up? What are some foods that you typically prepare?
Since I had just cooked up a bunch of healthy foods, I used a few of them in my lunch yesterday. On the menu: roasted broccoli.
Roasted summer squash with Rosemary and Basil.
A hardboiled egg and a turkey burger with melted cheddar.
After lunch, I ate a few dates—I always wish they looked as pretty as they tasted.
A few hours later, I snacked on piece of gluten-free toast with peanut butter.
When dinnertime rolled around, I threw together some Shepherd’s Pie made with mashed red potatoes, peas, and ground beef with melted cheddar on top. Holy yum! It was awesome!
Question of the Day
I heard on the radio yesterday a story about singer Miranda Lambert, who has recently started posing for photos with fans in exchange for a $100 to benefit her Muttnation Foundation. She said that she’s regularly bombarded by picture requests while working in her shop in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, so she thought this arrangement would be the perfect solution.
At first, I was like, whoa, she’s charging fans $100 to take a photo with her. That’s not cool. But, then when I realized the money would go to Muttnation and would benefit animals, I thought it was a great idea. Fans can get their photo taken with Miranda while raising money for a good cause. It’s a win-win and everyone benefits. I think if she were charging $100 for herself, it’d be a different story!
What do you think of Miranda’s arrangement? Would you pay $100 to get your photo taken with a celebrity? If so, who?
I’d definitely pay $100 to have my photo taken with Ellen or Ryan Reynolds!
