Derek is working the late shift this week.

On one hand this makes me very sad because talking to my boyfriend via g-chat isn’t quite as fun as seeing him face to face.

On the other hand, this means I get full control of the tv (The Glee Project, what?!) and get to enjoy ‘Meghann Meals’ for the week.

‘Meghann Meals’ are weird creations the no one else seems to understand, but me. Derek is a trooper with most things I make, but he can only take so much of my funky mixes. ‘Meghann Meal’ nights are nights he knows he’s on his own.

Today night’s Meghann meal was an odd trio of what I was craving.

One third was a sweet potato topped with peanut butter, apple sauce, and granola.

Trust me – this was good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another third – fresh green beans. So crisp, so cold, and so good!

The remaining extra large third was a package of Kettle Corn I took from the Oldsmar Taphouse 5k on Friday night. It was some serious stuff!

We’re having issue with our ac again (I know, I know). We’ve had 4 different price quotes now from 4 different dealers, with 4 different prices. Oy Vey!

Luckily, Derek was able to fix today’s AC malfunction with a wire hanger and a quick prayer. Which was great, except he got home close to 9:00 and the AC stopped blowing cool air around noon. :/

I attempted to cool down this afternoon with a homemade smoothie.

My sister makes the BEST smoothies, so I took her lead on this one and kept it simple.

  • Frozen Cherries
  • 1 sccop chocolate protein powder
  • Low-fat Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Flax

Kelly was right – there is a difference when you use cow’s milk and almond milk in a smoothie. The cow’s milk creates a thicker, smoother smoothie. Good to know!

To further cool down after dinner I had a Klondike Ice Cream Sandwich

BOGO deals get me every time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Time to unwind with my man.

Good Night!
