Omelet, Shoes & Socks. But Not Together.

Do you ever have a day where you crave something all.day.long?  Today my every thought returned to one thing.  My spinach omelet.

Omelet.

Omelet!

OMELET!

So as soon as I got home from work, I started making it.  You are welcome in advance for the phenomenal photography skills about to be displayed.

I always start by grilling the chopped onion, usually just one slice of a sweet onion.  And then I add a handful of spinach, loosely chopped.

And then these two farm fresh beauties!

Once the veggies are grilled, I add the eggs.

And my favorite part!  The cheese!  This time I used feta.  I wait until the eggs are almost done before adding about two tablespoons of cheese.  I like the cheese to be warm but not completely melted.  (Please don’t be jealous of my manicure remains.)

Dinner is served.  So worth the wait!

And then I found a surprise on my porch.  A brown box.  Whatever could it be?…

My new Vasque trailing running shoes!  I ordered them online last week and they are finally here.  Just in time for my group run tomorrow.  We are heading to the park for a trail run.  Yeah!   I also ordered a pair of Merrell Windrush socks to try.  And for whatever reason (Happy Hump Day?) the company sent me a free Quaker Yogurt Granola Bar.  Yes, please and thank you!

In other news, today was day three of the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge.

Today’s combo was:

  • handful of spinach
  • 1 cup vanilla coconut milk
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 5 oz. pineapple
  • 6 large ice cubes

The color of today’s smoothie was brighter and lighter than Day 1 & Day 2 smoothies.  I had really high hopes for this one.  I love pina colada flavored anything and thought this would taste similar.  But it didn’t live up to my expectations.  Not sure how to describe it but it wasn’t… sweet enough.  It was too… light (airy), icy, maybe.  Kind of blah.  I want to play with the recipe more and get a better result.  #7daygreensmoothiechallenge

And these are just because I wanted to share the pretty, fresh flowers currently gracing my dining room table.

What are you craving lately?

What was the last piece of workout gear you bought?

    • I really like them so far, but I’ve only had the one run in them. Some things I like:
      They didn’t feel stiff.
      I didn’t feel the rocks through the soles.
      They are a nice fit. My foot didn’t slide forward/back in them on the trail.
      They are waterproof, which I wanted because we will have snow on the high trails for a few more months.
      They had great reviews all over the internet.

      I am hoping I feel the same way about them in a few months!
