My trip to the mall was very successful! On the way I had an apple and a luna bar as a small lunch.
At the mall I got a really great black dress that will serve double duty during Brad’s company Christmas party and my brother’s wedding (I’m a bridesmaid) next June. I really really love it.
I also dropped by Crate and Barrel to spend the gift card my brother and his fiance gave me for my grad school graduation last May. I got a teapot (super excited about) and a tiny little cutting board. All of our cutting boards are pretty big so it will be nice to have a size more convenient for cutting up a small amount of veggies and fruit.
When I returned home I had a mini smoothie to hold me over until dinner.
The smoothie was made with 1/3 cup of skim milk, 1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt, 1/2 scoop of chocolate whey protein, 1 tsp of instant coffee, and a small handful of spinach. I call it a “Green Mocha”. Yum!
Brad has been marinating tuna steaks in a mixture of soy sauce, ginger, and freshly squeezed orange juice all day. We were going to grill it for dinner tonight, but it’s pretty cold and misty outside so I think the oven will be used instead. Photos to come!
