Yikes! Summer’s officially over! 

This morning both kids were headed to school – so that meant I had the morning free! Woohoo! Now if only I didn’t have so much laundry to do…

Before leaving to get my WOD on at CrossFit Palo Alto, I packed Big-O’s lunch in his PlanetBox lunchbox: baby carrots, sugar snappea crisps, almonds, Applegate Farms organic roast chicken, and a sliced pluot.

I walked him to school and when I returned home, I ate a couple scrambled eggs and leftover roasted veggies.

The women’s class at CrossFit Palo Alto was packed today! I suspect that lots of other mommies were finally free to get sweaty since their kids were back in school.

After our tough workout, I ate a nuked yam, a couple slices of Applegate Farms roast beef, and a few marinated roasted beets.

At noon, I picked up Lil-O from school and we came home to eat lunch. I fried up the remainder of the mini Turkish sliders and ate them with leftover roasted broccoli and bacon, marinated roasted beets, and spicy sauerkraut.

In the afternoon, we picked up Big-O and his buddy from school. While the kids had their playdate, I was finally able to fold my mountain(s) of laundry.

For dinner, I needed to make something quick and easy since I was headed to a nursery school board meeting at 7:00 p.m.

Lettuce tacos filled with emergency protein and guacamole to the rescue!

Here’s dinner:

Then, I dashed off to the preschool meeting (which was 2.5 hours long!) and came home and crashed.

Ack! My nightshift work week resumes tomorrow night! Time sure passes quickly…

From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
