Not So Laborious

Labor Day hasn’t been too laborious, which is a very good thing. πŸ˜€

I ran to the mall to do some returns before meeting up with my friend Laurel to lay by the pool for an hour or so. When I arrived home, I found Ryan sitting at the kitchen table hard at work stuffing our remaining wedding invitations. What a guy!

I sat down to join him after making us banana vanilla protein shakes.

The shake included:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 c. vanilla bean frozen yogurt
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

My β€œJ” cup was in the dishwasher from yesterday’s mocha green monster, so Ryan kindly let me use his initial cup.

We ran out of stamps for our RSVP card envelopes, so we couldn’t completely finish stuffing our wedding invitations, bu t we only have 10 left. That’s nuffin!


Though we had some snapper waiting to be prepared for dinner in the fridge, Ryan had the idea of serving the fish with a fresh arugula salad, so we headed to the grocery store to pick up the necessary goods.

While I prepared the fish and a side of Kraft grilled cheese explosion macaroni and cheese, Ryan prepped the salads with sliced zucchini, freshly squeezed lemon juice and grated lemon, salt, pepper and a bit of olive oil.

I broiled the snapper, topped with salt, pepper and several lemon slices, for approximately 10 minutes.

We enjoyed our fish on top of the arugula salad with a side of mac and cheese.

(My salad bowl looks like a super tiny plate, but it’s actually a deep bowl. Lots more veggies that ya think!)

Ryan picked up a box of this new flavor of Kraft mac and cheese saying we just had to try it. I’m not gonna lie, it was pretty fantastic, though I think we’ll be sticking to mac and cheese varieties with a more understandable ingredient list.

Tasty, tasty!

I gotta run… We’re in the middle of Jeopardy and celebrities are on this week which means the trivia is easy-peasy. I gotta go win a million dollars! πŸ˜‰
