Morning! Hope everyone is having a happy Monday so far <3
Catching up on the weekend?
Today, the Pilot took a day of leave –he has a ton, and you use it or ya lose it- so we’ve been taking it easy this morning.
Drank some tea
made some omelets
with 2 eggs, greens, turkey, and the star of the show was kalamata olive goat cheese:
one of a few Trader Joe’s impulse buys- it’s almost as bad as Target. TJs has an amazing talent for taking the things I love and making them even better, especially with their goat cheese varieties. Also picked up some falafel chips (corn and garbanzo chips- they’re beautifully spiced, too) and powerberry trail mix. Somehow, the powerberries are missing from the mix
Since the Pilot is home, today feels more like Sunday, so we’re going to spend it getting things done around the casa and running a couple of errands.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday <3
