Alright. I’ll make a deal. I’ll realize that even if it is a heat index of 100+, that’s a lot cooler than the temperatures a lot of you guys are dealing with now, too.
So, I won’t whine about how hot it was today.
Instead, I’ll whine about how I’m all out of bread and when I went to buy a loaf today, they were all out.
I’ll just look on the bright side, I guess. I mean, I have a sandwich for lunch every day. Now I’ve got to mix it up!
- 1/4 c. quick oats
- 1 T. Peppy Kernels
- 1 T. Ruth’s Chia Goodness (Cranberry-Ginger)
- trail power
- 1/2 c. almond milk
- vanilla galaxy granola
- mashed melty banana
- honey roasted cashews
- ginger preserves
- sunflower seed butter
- maple syrup
I don’t have many pictures of the day’s eats as I was running a bit late this morning so didn’t take many photos. Luckily, I packed the majority of my lunch last night anyways. But, I wanted to make sure I had time to spend with Teddie to get him some good grazing time, brush him, and braid his mane so he wouldn’t melt away underneath it.
I’m all for toning the neck, but the poor guy’s mane weighs as much as he does.
Oh and a dunkin donuts iced coffee. I had to. I was running out for my boss’s lunch and the loaf of bread that didn’t happen. The fact that I have no air conditioning in Gertrude made that iced coffee all the more appealing.
I am loving the blueberry Oikos cups. I don’t buy flavored greek yogurt often, and actually my mom brought them home for me – but I ought to buy them more often. The choco browni gnu bar, however, was only okay. I blame it on me – I’m just not a chocolatey girl.
I actually made my dinner last night, and glad I did, too. I stopped to make sure Teddie was fairing okay with the hot weather, and ended up being there for almost an hour, just hosing him down and letting him get some grass, fly spraying him, worrying about him – you know the drill. He was totally fine. Hot and sweaty – but fine. I just felt bad because there’s nothing I can do for him. I almost loaded him in the Jeep and took him home for the night, but…you know how that goes 😉
Sara made a cold pasta salad yesterday, and as soon as I read that last night, hopped up and made one for tonight.
See, I was craving cold pasta salad as I drove home from the barn yesterday, but by the time I walked in the door I had no patience for that, and the quinoa-chickpea cherry salad was just as good.
So, imagine my excitement driving home thinking of this after being all hot and sweaty even if all I was doing with Teddie was hosing him down and doting on him.
I hope that pony knows how much I love him 😉
Anyways – in the salad was just a chopped plum tomato and some snap peas, all coated in a sesame oil salad dressing. Yum-o!
Hope everyone is staying safe with this hot weather! It’ll be over soon 🙂
And, the man himself: (sorry these may be repeats. i keep forgetting what i’ve shown and what i haven’t, haha. but in tradition of horsey humpday, i’ll just go pony crazy today!)
