I saw John McCain
Wednesday was a whirlwind!
I started off with some tasty banana oats…my favorite, it’s been too long.
Then I headed to work, even on my day off, because John McCain was making an appearance. I try to avoid political stuff on my blog, but let me just say this…I didn’t vote for him but I always try to see political or historical figures when they come to town. Something to tell the grandkids.
He gave a really nice speech about Veterans Day and then answered some questions from the crowd.
I ate a Larabar during the speech. They saw me post on Twitter and offered to send me a shirt, which I gladly acccepted!
I also got this snack in the mail which I had forgotten all about, since most of these things take weeks to get to you.
They do contain honey for my vegan friends, but they were crunchy and salty too. I enjoyed them as part of my lunch that day.
After the McCain thing, I went to the gym and did an awesome workout of 2 miles on the treadmill and some weights. I really pushed myself to find some appropriate training weights and not just using the same ones each time. I’m ready to get stronger!
Let’s just say, my triceps are still sore today, ha ha 😉
We had a spectacular Girls Night Potluck that evening. For my side item, I brought spicy potatoes! What do you call potatoes that aren’t really fries or wedges either?
Start with some potatoes (I used all but 2 of these):
Slice them and place the pieces on a baking sheet. Brush lightly with oil and sprinkle on hot seasoning (ours is called Slap Ya Mama).
Bake at 450 for 30 minutes or so. Flip them halfway through.
The rest of dinner was vegan chili, made deliciously by Beth, who also modeled her Halloween costume for us.
She was a package! Her boyfriend is a FedEx delivery dude, in real life and on Halloween, ha ha.
We also had some veggies, bread and my fries/chips/whatever on the side. They were SPICY!
All together, a great meal 🙂
Instead of dessert, we had wine!
This was Yellowtail Pinot Grigio and it was delicious. I’ve been sticking to mostly reds lately so this was a welcome change.
I swear I only had one glass (all of us split a bottle). I just liked taking pictures of it apparently.
Just another Wednesday. Love my girls!
Hope your Friday the 13th was lucky 🙂
