On the way out the door, I headed to the kitchen to throw something together really quickly for lunch. I had bought some pears earlier this week and they are starting to get to the point or “Eat me or else.” So lunch was made around these pears.
I grabbed a large handful of spinach, chopped up a green pepper, and the pear and put it all in a To-Go box. Sprinkled some sunflower seeds and feta cheese on top. Grabbed my salad dressing container and called it lunch! It was actually really satisfying and the flavors went together really nicely.
As soon as I got to the office, there wasn’t a moment for me to sit and relax at all.
Oh my way home, I started to think about everything that had to get done before I headed out for the weekend. Between the dogs, cleaning, packing, work, my 11 mile run and a long list of little things, I’m not exactly sure how it’s going to be managed. The long ride really just gives me time to start freaking out about what I’m not doing while I’m driving. It’s slightly miserable.
I ended up stopping off at the post office to drop the Thanksgiving letters in the mail. As I was addressing them this afternoon, I was realizing how many different places these letters were actually going. It was NUTS. So out of the 10 letters that I sent out, I reached 7 different states. Not kidding.

Crazy right?! It just made me think about how spread out we have all gotten and yet I still talk to them on a regular basis. 🙂
Needless to say, as soon as I got home, I was starving and prepared to make nothing that took longer than 5 minutes. I just didn’t have the time. I had picked up some Cranberry English Muffins that I have been dying to try. So one of those went into the toaster while I mixed up the insides.
|1 Can of Tuna||1/4 Green Pepper, Chopped|
|1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder||1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard|
|A Dab of Smart Balance Mayo|
I topped it with a slice of american cheese and Dinner was served!
It was PACKED with green peppers and I loved it. The pop of cranberry from the english muffin added a lot of flavor to it. I would plan on putting some dried cranberries into the next batch of tuna that I make. It really added something different to it.
Tonight I’ve got a lot on the agenda, so I’m off to crackin!
Does driving give you a time to relax?? Or does it make you think about everything you haven’t done resulting in a mini freak out??
Absolutely, freak out.
