Lunch with dad...

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Went to the farmers market before heading out to the farm to make lunch for my dad and brother. Got a 1/2 peck of apples, spaghetti squash, onions and a small piece of smoked gouda. Made a pork stir fry for lunch, but all mom had in the kitchen was white rice, so I had white rice for the first time in about 8 months. I prefer the brown rice. We also had green beans and cold, boiled beets. I finished the meal off with one of my apples. After lunch I did the dishes and scrubbed the stove down. Dad said mom cleaned it last night, but it looked like a week's worth of food splattered on there. My mom is kind of a messy cook. lol

Cooper and I walked 6.7 miles today, over 3 walks. I know, short walks today, right? But that is just the way the timing worked out. If it isn't raining in the morning I will take him out for a long walk. I am thinking of trying out a slightly different route. He and I both get bored if we walk the same route all the time. We are lucky that we live in a fairly safe community... we can go pretty much anywhere we feel like.

    I still haven't tried Spaghetti Squash. I keep meaning to and either can't find it, or when I do, I just forget. One of these days though.

    What a great day - farmer's market for some good foods and a nice lunch with your mom and dad. So glad you enjoyed it, and I'm sure your folks did, too!

    We had some rain here too in MN. Not alot, but unusual for November. Generally it is snow this time of year. Jim even went to the range to practice today.

    That looks like a very good day! You don't have to put at least 10 miles on a day to lose weight, that is great!

    I like brown rice best too. There are many days when the cardio walks with my dog Jetta are broken up in bits and pieces too. Know just what you mean! You had a great day. emoticon
