My desk is clean, organized, and ready for work! I even dusted it! 😉
I did a couple of “arts & crafts” projects while cleaning.
This scrap-paper holder is the bottom of an old thank you card box.
I even organized the shelf in the office. I was en fuego! 😉
I tried something new for lunch today. I had a small zucchini and a yellow squash that needed to be eaten ASAP, so I made them into squash fries— sort of like my sweet potato fries.
Here’s a quick tutorial: chop zucchini/squash into “fries,” put in Tupperware container, add 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal, 1 tbsp whole flaxseeds, and salt + pepper to taste.
Put on cover and shake like crazy.
Spread fries on baking sheet and then bake for 20-25 minutes on 475*F.
My squash fries turned out really well. They were sort of crispy on the outside, but still soft and “squashy” on the inside. I really liked the grainy texture and flaxseeds on the outside.
To go with my “fries,” I made a couple of dipping sauces: pesto + sour cream and buffalo sauce + Four Cheese Rosa sauce.
Both dipping sauces were pretty good, but (not surprisingly) I preferred the one with buffalo sauce. 😉
In honor of Cookie Friday, I attempted a new cookie recipe, but it totally bombed. 😕 These cookies were edible, but nothing special. Boo.
I also added a Siggi’s yogurt to lunch for some extra protein.
A little while after lunch, I snacked on a pear. Now, I am hungry again.
