Hectic Hump Day & BBQ Tempeh & Portobello Sandwiches

Hectic Hump Day
Holy hump day. This day turned out to be a crazy busy day for me at work and then lots of Plan B's taking place. I had anticipated hitting spin after work with my friend (it was on my to-enjoy list). I had also anticipated getting my hair done (also on to-enjoy list).

What really happened was I had to reschedule my appointment and ended up hitting spin at lunch. Of course, the noon spin really helped me sort of regroup after a hectic, busy work morning. I am sure my boss was worried I might just go AWOL.

So, it really did kind of work out for the best that I was able to get my sweat on earlier rather than later. The only downfall is that I had planned on having time before spin class to get in back today. That'll just have to be moved to tomorrow or Friday though. I can be flexible...sometimes.


Hump Day Happy Hour (and Hubby cooking)
I typically don't go out on a school night ever. But today was the exception. I worked until 5 then ended up meeting my friend after work for a drink. She really wanted someone to talk to, and I needed to unwind in a big way. We met up at an Irish pub that we really enjoy. There was another group coming along at 6, but we met up a little after 5 and I just stayed for one drink.

Jason was nice enough to get dinner started for us. I had suggested maybe a tempeh BBQ with sweet potato fries. He put together sauteed onions, bell peppers, portobellos and tempeh with BBQ sauce for a BBQ Tempeh and Portobello Sandwich. Turned out so yummy. It was nice to come home after a hard day and have dinner going already too.

Oh, even better, we ate at the kitchen table again.

Daily To-Enjoy List
Well, last night Jason and I did eat at the kitchen table so I knocked that one off the list finally. But, we never got around to the movie. That's ok though. I'll just keep that one there for future to-enjoy moments. Today's additions were a little scattered, but they mostly got checked off.

Just like a to-do list, I can't expect every to-enjoy item to happen right? But, I am determined to make sure that I at least enjoy one of the things from my list. I'll also be happy to enjoy any unplanned to-enjoy moments as well ;-)
  • Movie with hubby (this will just be on-going)
  • Getting hair done (rescheduled)
  • Spin with friend (hit spin at different time, sans friend)
  • Happy hour with my friend (unplanned treat)
