Friday..... Sigh. So glad it's Friday! This has been a hectic and long week and I'm glad it's over.
Lasts night we tried something new for dinner- black rice. I rarely eat rice and usually we eat brown when we do. My husband came home from Costco with this big bag of black rice. Personally I've never heard of it and I was curious. It has a nutty flavor. We prepared it with onion and sweet potato. Not sure where Nanny got the recipe but it was awesome! The black rice has 160 calories per cup, 34 grams carb and 2 gram fiber. It made an interesting change and for a rare mix up of a side dish it was nice.
Actually I had a vegetarian night with a a bean salad with roasted peppers. I cannot remember where I got the recipe from right now but it's a keeper! Yummy!
Today I was pleased to wake up to a day with no hospital meeting for the first time this week! It was a busy day but productive. Came home for lunch and had left overs from last night. Unfortunately I ran late in clinic so my workout got nixed. Best laid plans.
Anyway when I finally got home we had a yummy dinner of asparagus with prosciutto. That one I got from Tami at Nutmeg Notebook. Hubby LOVED it and although he like asparagus ok it's not his favorite and if it isn't just right he won't eat it so that is a great compliment.
Tomorrow will be spent with housework and more gardening. I have some more planting to do. I'm sure there will be a trip to Sam's at some point. Son has a day of canoeing for boy scouts. Hubby will get ready for his business trip. On Sunday I'm planning a relaxing day with a trip to the movies with the kids.
My goals for the weekend are to track all my food and get the chores done. We new to practice and stretch for TKD at some point.
I'll leave you now with a pic of a rose from the miniature rose bush my kids gave me for Mother's Day last year. We planted it and it survived the rabbits. The girls were so excited to see the roses appear this spring. Hope your weekend is a great one!
