Another week, another Thursday night, another good TV and couch session 🙂
Today was a gorgeous day in St. Louis- low 70s and sunny! I had planned to go to the gym after work, but when I saw the beautiful skies and remembered that next week (after the time change) it will be too dark to run outside after work – not to mention that we’re lucky to still have such warm temps- I changed my plans and headed out for a 4 mile run.
I’m starting to really love my Thursday nights- my only real “night off” during the week. I have class Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so Mondays I’m usually finishing up homework. My current Thursday night routine is a good workout, shower, a yummy dinner, then wine and TV with the husband. I absolutely love the feeling I have after a hard workout and a hot shower when I put on my comfy clothes and have nothing to do but relax 🙂 Anybody else know what I’m talking about?
On to dinner…I was craving lots of veggies tonight, so I decided to replicate one of my favorite meals from a local chain called Crazy Bowls & Wraps. I made some WW couscous, steamed some broccoli, cooked some shelled edamame and frozen peppers, threw it all in a bowl and topped it with TJ’s Soyaki sauce. Fresh, simple and flavorful – YUM! It took me about 15 minutes to get it all together and was made from things in my freezer or pantry.
Happy almost Halloween!
