Tax Day

Thursday was an interesting day, which started with me mailing our taxes at almost the last minute (well, 10 a.m. at least)!

004
And also an old fashioned, cooked on the stove top bowl of oats :)

001

Not only do they taste better, but they make for a better presentation too!

002 
When I got to work, I had some tea and mixed nuts.

005

Then I had one of the best lunches ever! I hadn’t had this in a while and I recently saw Caitlin enjoying it, so I decided to add it back to the rotation ;-)

006

While I think vegetarian baked beans are my favorite, this works well with black beans, pinto beans, etc. Veggies + protein = <3

And I enjoyed some ripe, juicy strawberries too!

007

For my afternoon snack, I tried some new sun dried tomato hummus with carrots.

008

I ate it all, but it left a weird aftertaste and I’m not sure that I really liked it that much. But oh well, I tried something new ;-)

009

After work, I went to the gym and ran 2 miles.

So far I have only missed one day of running this week, so I feel pretty good. I’ve been taking lots of short walks at work too to get my Vitamin D!

For dinner, I went with Indian. Pre-packaged Indian, that is!

012 013I thought I checked all the packages well at the store but that dang rice contains milk! :(

Just shows that even at 7+ months into this, it’s still easy to make mistakes and stuff slips in. It still turned out to be a nice dinner.

015  
It wasn’t the best I’d ever had but it was pretty good. I also had some broccoli with Smart Balance Light for some more veggies.

014 
After dinner digested, I took Suzie to the dog park for a little bit so she could get her exercise too! She loves it there. I’m so glad we got her signed up.

When we got back, I was really craving non-dairy ice cream, but instead of spending a lot to get some high calorie, sugary treat, I made a much healthier version…Banana soft serve!

I just threw one frozen banana in the food processor.

016
Then processed until it got creamy, stopping to scrape the sides a few times.

017
I topped mine with almond butter and chocolate chips! So much better than processed, store bought ice cream :)

018

I watched “500 Days of Summer” which was cute but also a little depressing. It was a beautifully shot movie though, made me want to live in a big(ger) city ;-)

I got hungry again later that night, so I had a small cup of oat bran with almond butter and chips.

019 
Do you wait until the last minute to do your taxes?

I don’t usually wait until the last day but we had to pay state taxes and I had to wait until we got the money together for that!
