My husband’s smart. His secret trick for getting me to do things is to pretend he’s about to attempt to do it himself.
The other day, he asked me how to peel a kiwi, and before I knew it, I was throwing myself a kiwi peel-chop party.
Pop quiz: guess how much more likely you are to eat fruit or veggies after they’ve been washed, peeled, cut, and stored in a nice container in the fridge?
We got one of those GINORMOUS Costco containers of kiwis, and they sat in the fridge for over a week prior to the peel-chop party. Then, suddenly, they were gone in 2 days.
If you got the answer to that question, take a shot at this one: How long will it take me to get sick of this meal?
It’s been literally months of eating this for lunch at least once a week, if not 3-4 times. Sometimes the spinach is brown rice, sometimes there’s leftover tofu or chicken, and sometimes the egg is runnier (I only hard-fry eggs by request or by accident), but the end result is always about the same.
Yesterday, on a whim, I posted this on Twitter:
I got 40 done by noon, but then proceeded to forget about it all afternoon. Oops. The last 50 may have happened between 9-11 PM, and 30 of those may have happened in the same 15-minute stretch, but I got em all done.
In case anyone has been living under the false assumption that Pyrex is unbreakable (as I was until yesterday), behold:
Also, Mason is banned from the kitchen until further notice.
He must have sensed he wasn’t in my good graces, especially after he pulled the mirror off our bedroom wall later that same day, because he spent the afternoon’s park outing in prayer.
Seriously, he stayed like that for a long time. It was killing me.
The mail was brimming with goodies yesterday. First, I got this book I ordered on Amazon:
It’s a memoir by a blogger, about the time she met the man of her dreams right as he was leaving to sail around the world. She writes about how she decided that, in order to keep him, she had to go with him, despite the fact that she was terrified of deep water.
I read a few snippets online and got hooked! Can’t wait to…ugh, yep, I’m going to say it…dive in.
The other thing in the mail was a CD filled with photos from our recent family photo shoot. (Our photographers are amazingly talented!)
Here’s a sample:
Do you have a go-to lunch?
