Like most people, I dread Mondays. It’s always difficult getting back into the swing of things after a fun weekend. I was thinking about this on the way to work this morning and decided to not focus on despising Mondays. If I think about something else, I’ll focus less on the day and therefore lose the negativity.
Some say Mondays are great for fresh starts. I don’t think I’ll ever be a big Monday person but turning my negative thoughts around is definitely a start! And now on to the fun stuff- weekend eats!
I love fajitas but all of the oils sit pretty heavy in my stomach. I’m going to try and make these at home with less grease in the near future.
On Saturday, I got some work done while exercising on the elliptical for an hour. Double tasking is the best. That evening, Lee and I went to the grocery store to pick up some things for dinner.
We decided to make shrimp and crispy green bean fries for dinner before digging into our chocolate cake.
I used Julie’s recipe for hoisin and sesame shrimp, which turned out perfectly. We were even successful using the broiler for the first time. (The next day, I used the shrimp and tortillas from my fajitas on Friday to make Lee some quesedillas and he gave them 2 thumbs up!) We used this recipe for the green beans that I found on Pinterest and they were really good too.
I’ll definitely be making this meal again. Hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a positive Monday!
Question of the day: Do you do anything special on Mondays to help excite you through the day?
I just got hooked on Mad Men so I plan on watching an episode or 2 this evening while doing loads of laundry. I can’t wait!
