Oh and I got to use mine and my Mum's latest artistic creation. I sew like crap but I'm a great designer and cutter. So we teamwork.
We get creative from time to time my Mum and I. Martha Stewart likes to demon possess her too. Here's some of our other crafty creations.
So after the markets I hit the new section of the mall. God help me there is now a Coach and Williams Sonoma within walking distance of my house. I was good though and left bag-less and gadget-less.
Then I took a super looooong walk. I've had a gnarly headache (sinus I think) for the last few days and I needed to breath some of the good stuff and soak in the warm rays. It helped.
I came home and made lunch. This yummy Tropical Chicken Salad we ate on the patio.
Shelly's Tropical Chicken Salad
2 cups Cooked Chicken (I used a Rotisserie)
1/2 cup Papaya Mango Salsa (I used Trader Joe's fresh)
1/2 a Hothouse/English Cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup Sliced Almonds
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise (or eliminate and do all Greek Yogurt)
1 Tablespoon Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Mix all ingredients together and serve on a bed of mixed greens. You can also serve it as a wrap.
and now I'm listening to tunes and sipping my Starbuck's Banana Vivanno knock-off...
Shelly's Banana Protein Mochacchino for 2
2 cups Vanilla Soy Milk (you can use ANY milk or milk/water combo. I'm a soy girl)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I use Sugar Free Vanilla)
1 scoop Click Espresso Protein Powder
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
3-4 Ice Cubes
Add liquid, then powders, then additions and blend on high. I serve it with a squirt of SF Land o Lakes Whipped Cream and a drizzle of Smucker's SF Caramel Syrup.
A great day. Hope yours was wonderful too and full of WOW moments. Life is a series of moments. Spend them wisely we don't know how many we have.
