hello, world. i have been dreading writing this...not for any particular reason, just because the couch has been looking so much more comfortable. : )
let me start with pictures from last week.
for some reason, i was on a pasta kick last week. i made much more than i needed to last monday and had the leftovers for three or so nights. jacob thought it was weird but i just like my pasta. my favorite way to serve it is with peanut sauce and a bit of sriracha. if i am feeling fancy, i will even sprinkle on roasted sesame seeds. below is italian style with some (lame) ragu and shredded mozzarella cheese.
this past sunday, jacob and i went to another easter celebration at his mother's house and a bunch of her family. i did fine while we were there but once i got home, i had a hard time keeping my hands out of the giant marshmallows that jacob found when we were at target. they were intended for s'mores but we never got around to making them.
here are just a couple of shots from the day. we will start with the three bald men (not to be confused with the three wise men...) trying to get a kite out of the tree.
newest pictures from three days ago.
finally, a quick look at our DELICIOUS dinner from last night. jacob used my mom's recipe on some flank steak along with ridiculously large salads, corn, and garlic toast.
as i said in the title of this post, i am about halfway through this diet process. the top of the healthy range for my height requires me to lose about 30 lb more. i know eventually that i will plateau so i am trying to enjoy how easily the weight is coming off right now. i also know that i need to exercise (which i know i talk about in pretty much every post) and that i am really just making excuses to avoid doing it.
if i have too many giant marshmallows this week...maybe a walk will be necessary before saturday's weigh-in.
