Saturday night, my brother and his fiancé came over for dinner bringing delicious beer and soft and creamy cheese. They also brought the ingredients to make cilantro lime rice to go with our shrimp tacos and Mango and Pineapple Salsa. We definitely had a laugh that her rice recipe comes from the same blog as my salsa recipe!
After dinner, we sat out back listening to music and chatting about their upcoming wedding. Sunday morning, everyone had places to be and I had a bike to ride and tour to watch. This week is one of those odd ones where I am working on Monday and off Friday because Saturday is my little bro’s wedding. We also have a lot of family descending into Chicago for the event, some of which will be staying with us. For this reason, I tried to keep eating super simple this week.
Sunday night, I made my favorite simple crockpot recipe figuring that we could make tacos or rice bowls with our leftovers from Saturday night’s dinner.
They were fantastic and also made a yummy lunch this week!
On the exercise front, I turned off my alarm and slept in this morning for the first time in weeks! After 5 straight days of tough workouts, I hit snooze, reset my alarm, and never looked back. I was even happier when I did finally step outside into the thick heat and humidity that I hadn’t gotten up early for a run. I’m considering throwing in an early morning 30 minute jog tomorrow morning, but we shall see. I may snooze again : )
Do you ever snooze or sleep in?
