Just a typical Sunday around here!
First, we woke up nice and early and I typed up my morning blog post before quickly making a smoothie to drink on the ride to church.
I made my chocolate peanut butter cup smoothie, but added two large handfuls of fresh spinach to the mix.
It was great, but the cold smoothie made me shiver my way through church. Brr!
On our way home from church, we stopped by the grocery store and picked up food for the week. Once we made it back to the house, I took out my food processor and got to work in the kitchen making raw cashew butter and sunflower seed pesto.
I omitted the walnuts from my original pesto recipe and left some of the cashew butter in the food processor in their place.
The pesto came out great and I used it to make myself a plate of pesto chicken salad with carrots and cherry tomatoes for lunch.
On the side I ate some vegetables. Kind of.
They were giving away free samples of the Snikiddy Eat Your Vegetables chips at the grocery store and after trying one chip I was sold and bought a bag. Delicious! I used the chips as dippers for my chicken salad and loved the added crunch.
Since I wanted something sweet after lunch, I had a small bowl of white chocolate covered pretzels.
After lunch, I tried to read Gone Girl. Last night I hit a huge turning point in the book and all I want to do today is read!
Unfortunately someone had other ideas…
Indoor fetch! Sadie’s favorite summertime game.
We played several rounds of indoor fetch before Ryan suggested braving the heat and taking Sadie for a walk since her energy level was clearly off the charts. Walking at 1:30 p.m. in the middle of August in Florida? Brilliant.
Even know we knew we’d sweat like crazy, we headed out and walked about three miles with Sadie. Yesterday Ryan watched some of the Olympic speed walking and we spent about two minutes of our walk trying to walk as fast as we could. It was really hard and we both agreed that jogging is way easier than crazy-fast speed walking. Those athletes deserve some credit!
When we returned, we were a sweaty mess and immediately hopped in the pool.
Now we’re brainstorming dinner ideas. Burgers are the current front-runner.
Hope you’re enjoying a relaxing Sunday!
