Phew, yesterday was quite a day. We had the home inspection on the house we’re (hopefully) buying and it needs a fair amount of work, but we weren’t terribly surprised by anything, since the house is pretty old. I’ll share yesterday’s eats with you but I have to warn you that there is an embarrassing lack of vegetables here. Like none (unless you count a handful of unpictured baby carrots.) But you know what? Sometimes that’s how life goes and you just have to roll with it! So I’m thinking up with Jenn to show you what I ate!
I started off the day with a peanut butter + banana smoothie.
This was 1 cup of ice cubes, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1 small banana, 1/4 cup peanut flour, bit of sweetener.
I had a small apple for a snack but half of it ended up being pretty bruised so I didn’t eat much of it. My stomach was growling by 11:30! I ended up grabbing a quick bite at my apartment before running over to the new house to meet the home inspector.
I know, frozen pizza, be impressed. Really though, this Culinary Circle Ultra Thin Crust Margarita Pizza is pretty delicious. It’s also not to terribly bad for you, so if you’ve got a pizza craving, try it!
We spent most of the afternoon following the inspectors around, asking questions, taking measurements, and taking pictures.
I was hoping to share more pictures with you, but the person living there hasn’t totally moved out yet, and it would be weird showing you pictures of her stuff. But here’s a little sneak peek of the master bedroom leading into the sunroom! There is SO much natural light in that sunroom.
After our home adventures, our small group came over for dinner, so I made a huge pan of ravioli. It wasn’t my most creative recipe but I usually play it safe if I’m cooking for a big group.
I’ll have to borrow Betty Crocker’s photo since I didn’t want to be rude and pull out my camera to snap 100 pictures while everyone was waiting to eat. You can find the recipe here. It turned out well, and I mostly followed the recipe, although I made a slightly bigger batch and I added in some crushed tomatoes and additional seasoning. It turned out similar to a lasagna but it was so easy to throw together. (Then again, lasagna in a crockpot was pretty easy…) There was also an unpictured chocolate chip cookie… because every day should end on a sweet note!
Clearly I need to make up for lost veggies today! But I have to admit, eating pizza and pasta all day tasted pretty good!
