Good morning from hot Phoenix! It is sure toasty here this week as most days have been 105F ish. I have yet to turn on the AC in my condo though. I face north and am sheltered by other buildings on the grounds. The inside temp has been around 80F and quite livable. I am not sure how much longer that will last but I’m not complaining 😉 Time for the weekly look at everyone’s great posts in Jenn’s WIAW series.
I spotted the biggest watermelon I have ever seen at Costco last week for $3.99. It was humungous and filled every single tupperware and plastic container I own in the fridge!
I have been adding an egg white to the Kodiak Cake batter and am impressed with how fluffy it makes the morning pancakes. I added on some strawberry fruit and honey syrup from Nature Nate’s. I discovered them while in Dallas as they are based just outside of the city.
I signed up for an adult swimming stroke refinement class this week. It has been kinda disappointing and not as helpful as I had hoped. I got a bit of a burn today as the pool is outside and the class is from 11-Noon. Before heading out I snacked on some grapes and a few pretzels.
I had to rush over to a chiropractor and massage appointment and stopped for a green veggie (and very gingery) juice. I ate the english muffin with Sunberry butter as well before heading to my appointments.
I quickly ate some frozen grapes later in the afternoon when I finally got home.
Dinner was a chicken burger with an attempt at recreating that Whole Foods coleslaw I talked about on the blog last week. It was really close in flavor and I hope to try another attempt (I forgot to measure the amounts for the dressing) and then I will definitely share it with you. It was so quick and easy.
After dinner I enjoyed some more watermelon, and some frozen grapes and some vanilla yogurt that was on sale at Whole Foods. It got a little melty as I was distracted by looking for banana free muffin recipes on Pinterest. Have any breakfast muffin recipes without banana? I made cinnamon and raisin ones and plain cinnamon last week to eat at work on the weekend.
I am off to try Orange Theory today. I am excited to see how it goes and what the session is like. I finally placed my first Sizzlefish order this week and it is supposed to come today. I miss having good quality seafood and am looking forward to tasting the fish.
