It’s been awhile since I shared a day of food on here. There are a few reasons for this, including that my food lately has been boring and I haven’t been taking pictures of it. On Sunday I felt like some of my meals were photo-worthy for the first time in awhile, so I figured maybe they were worth sharing. And Sundays are usually the most random day of food for me because we are either trying to finish everything we have leftover from the previous week or eating at random times throughout the day based on not having a real “schedule” to the day.
This past Sunday we were up at 6:30 and after a bit of coffee and blogging I got to work on breakfast- eggs scrambled with spinach, bacon, and fruit. Since my weekday mornings are more rushed these days its nice when I actually have time to cook in my new kitchen.
I took a yoga class from 11:30-1 so had a Luna Bar before class (forgot to take a pic) and then I was starving when class was over. I texted Rob and he had eaten leftovers already so I stopped and grabbed a 1/2 salad from Cosi. (The half salads are pretty big, and still $8!!)
After lunch I relaxed for a bit, read, and eventually fell asleep and took a 45 minute nap. I NEVER nap anymore and I always wake up in such a daze! When I got up Rob asked if I wanted to go for a walk- we both try to get our steps in based on our activity trackers and it’s always more of a challenge when we don’t run.
After getting back we got to work on dinner which was homemade pizza. Rob opened one of these beers and after trying his I decided to have one of my own.
We bought pizza dough at Trader Joes and didn’t feel like it came out very good (we just couldn’t get the crust to be crispy) so we will probably go back to buying pre-made dough next time. Glad we tried it though because it was alot cheaper! We usually top our pizzas with tomato sauce, basil, spinach, broccoli, grilled chicken and mozzarella. Rob adds pepperoni to his side.
Dessert was a slice of this fancy cake from Fresh Market. I will say that we bought it on Saturday as an early birthday celebration for Rob’s bday (which is today!) but really, do we need a reason to eat cake? Probably not. We had half of it on Saturday and finished it up Sunday night. Not gonna lie- we will probably eat more cake tonight.
Not a very exciting day, but definitely different than my usual weekday meals! We have liked making pizza on Sunday night’s as it feels like a “treat” plus it’s also something we work on together and comes together quickly and easily.
If you make homemade pizza, do you make your own crust?
How often do you take naps?
Have you ever tried Heavy Sea’s Gold?
