Return of Mayo

After my Tuesday night beers, I woke up needing vitamins and hydration.  Before even hitting the coffee pot, I hit the blender.  (I know, I'm shocked too!)

Green smoothie time! 


In the KA today:  ice, 1/2 frozen banana, 2 handfuls baby spinach, 1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein powder, 1 tsp maca powder, 2 tsp flax meal, 3/4 cup UCAB...


Combined with water and coffee that kept me going most of the morning.  I nibbled on a few cherries when I wandered through the kitchen at some point too.

Condo news:  Tiffaney subbed in for me (yet again!) for the inspection and it went AWESOME!!  She and my realtor both got a laugh because the inspector was seriously struggling to come up with ANYTHING bad to say!!  How great is that?  The unit and the building are both very well maintained and totally exceeded expectation.  Woooooo!  :)

Come lunch time I was totally looking forward to using up some leftover chicken I had cooked up while making dinner the night before.  For some reason I've been craving chicken salad!  I even bought a little jar of light mayo when I grocery shopped last week in anticipation of this meal coming together. 

In the bowl:  chopped cooked boneless skinless chicken breast, celery, green onion, Sultana raisins, salt & pepper...


Mixed with mayo and served open face on a toasted sandwich thin...and sprinkled with a smidge of dill...


Sometimes I put grapes IN my chicken salad...this time I served them alongside...with a few light cheddar cubes...


My afternoon went part way to h3ll in a hand basket.  My bank decided they wanted something fixed on my condo paperwork...which is a gigantic pain in the behind because I have to receive everything by email and then print it out and take it to Staples to fax back.  I have now spent so much on faxing, I could have purchased a scanner...argh.  Hopefully that's the last of it...*cross your fingers*.

Because of all that hoopla and the 4 hour time difference, I ended up missing yoga.  It was supposed to be my last class, so I'm going to try my damndest to get there next Wednesday night instead.

Instead I made a late dinner (more freezer finds!) and finally got a good start on some packing.

Perogies!  Fried up in a tiny knob of real butter with onions and garlic...


Served with steamed broccoli and light sour cream for dipping.

Carby perogies made a good substitute for wanting stress foods like Cheeeetos.  :)  It was a good thing I didn't have any of those glowing orange munchies on hand...they wouldn't have stood a chance.

I did however have some yummy new ice cream in the freezer.  I have still been toting a craving for Coldstone around this last week, but in an effort to save a few bucks and not get into fast food/take out just yet (the road trip is going to be chock full of it!) I opted to try one of SuperStore's new ice cream shop flavours...Root Beer Float!


Super creamy!  Vanilla and root beer flavoured ice creams swirled together.  The flavour was perfect!  I did not like the crunchy candy bits in there though...crushed up pop flavoured Life Saver type things...I could have done without those.  But it did hit the spot while I packed up 4 boxes of kitchen ware. :)


Twas a long day and I actually slept like the dead.  Here's hoping today is a little lighter. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Hugs sweetie xo

Gah! I've been avoiding those ice cream flavors as much as possible! Rootbeer float sounds perfect for summer. I'm gunna have to steer clear of that entire section in the store!

Might pick me up some Perogies because of that yummy photo you posted...
