Some holidays I think are just made up.  I didn’t even know it was Professional Secretary Day yesterday, until I got to work and my co-worker heard it on the radio. 


I had brought my breakfast, but when I got there, my boss and brought in a shit ton of food.

Icing coated croissants, sugar cookies, angel food cake, whip cream and apricot jelly.  I think even though working for her for nearly 10 years that she forgets I am diabetic.  No worries!  I helped myself to the fruit!  And it was a nice gesture.

I went ahead and had the breakfast I made before work yesterday.  I cut up 3/4 cup of sweet potatoes, diced them up and put then in a pan with some water and let them cook while I took a shower – about 7 minutes.  I took them out of the pan, wiped it dry and then seared off 2 ounces of leftover steak.  Then I fried one egg, and put all of that in a container.  I had leftover diced red pepper, so I tossed that in my bag, along with some Cabot extra sharp cheese, and some sour cream.  When I got to work – it was time to assemble my nachos!  I used Tostitos whole grain scoops as the base.

I just divided the steak, egg and sweet potato in each cup, topped it with a few pieces of shredded cheese, then put it in the toaster oven under broiler for about 5 minutes.  Once they came out, topped them with the sour cream, red pepper, hot sauce and cilantro.  Such a colorful plate of food!  These were super filling too – #nomnom!

Another busy day at work and before I knew it, it was time to hit up the gym.  I ended up doing a glute workout on the arc trainer for 40 minutes while watching The Chew.  My Mom got me these socks for my birthday – I love them!  They have extra padding in the heel part – that seems to be the first part that wears out on my socks since my feet are a size and a half different.

And I wore another shirt Hannah got me for my birthday.  Thanks Hannah!  It actually motivated me to work out harder yesterday.

During my workout I got a snap chat from Joe – I know it’s either going to be one of their dogs or the weather – yep – it was the weather!  We didn’t make it to 50 degrees yesterday.

And I’ll give you another episode of Texting with Tony!  He’s so sweet!

I forgot I had brought home some broccoli cheddar soup from the restaurant last week.  It still smelled good, so I tossed in about 1/2 a cup of cooked egg noodles and topped it with some chopped cilantro that was leftover from breakfast.  I puffy heart cilantro!

I can’t believe I am about to say this, but this soup was actually too cheesy for me!  I couldn’t taste the broccoli at all.  This ended up sitting in my stomach like a rock the rest of the afternoon. 

It was another busy day at work, but I have to say, I have enjoyed having work to do all day long – I’ll miss it once they hire a new assistant!  I was walking around so much that in the afternoon I was thinking about what I could cook for dinner, when I suddenly came to the realization that I didn’t want to cook at all.  What?!

So sammies it was!  I had leftover turkey breast from the weekend, I had bacon, deli Italian beef, lettuce, tomato – club sandwiches it was!  My Mom brought me this garlic mustard from her trip in Key West – she knows I loves my mustards!  They went to a hot dog place there and they had about a dozen different mustards.  This one is delish!  And it absolutely made my sammie.

There may have been some crunchy Cheetos served with this sammie.  Just sayin.

No problem getting my 10,000 steps in!  I just realized I have 9 messages on Fitbit!  I’ll have to check those out.

Alright, I am off to cook some lemon poppy seed pancakes for breakfast – loosely based off of Tieghan’s recipe – do you read Half Baked Harvest?  No?!  Go now – she has the longest food titles that crack me up and all of her food is food porn!  Make it a great day!
