Let’s be honest – being married to a surgical resident sucks. Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of Adam that he’s such a smartypants and I love that he gets the opportunity to do something meaningful that excites him, but if I had my druthers I think we would both be beach bums working together at a part-time job somewhere.
We don’t have any time now. After 11 years together (and 6 years of marriage) we somehow still really like each other so living as two ships passing in the night, as I said, sucks.
It’s not great for blog content either. Adam was on night shifts all this week and I was home alone which meant I ate cereal and/or popcorn most days. Not a ton of healthy living to share! And it didn’t help that when I pulled up my photos to write this post half of them were horrendous and were promptly deleted. Here is what I do have to share…
Work lunch 1.
and a Passion Fruit Noosa.
This was the first time I had ever tried passion fruit not in juice form. I liked the crunchy seeds!
Work lunch 2.
topped with fresh blueberries,
The flax was part of a box of samples I recently received to review.
It was quite good; you couldn’t taste the berries but it had a nice hint of chocolate. I keep meaning to bring flax back into my life so the samples came at a great time.
Chocolate peppermint soy milk with frozen strawberries. Adam is obsessed with this combination. The only plus to nights is that he is home with me in the morning for breakfast.
This didn’t have the best texture but it did a great job of keeping me full.
These are Adam’s favorites but they couldn’t hold a candle to my new obsession with Haribo Juicy Bears.
Yuck! Way too salty. I’m hoping that the husband ends up liking it because it was quite expensive and I could only eat one square.
This one I have no complaints about :)
Oven baked fries.
With evoo, truffle salt, and dried rosemary from my grandma’s garden.
Iowa Girl Eats’ Chicken Chili topped with extra-sharp cheddar, low-fat sour cream, and pickled jalopeños.
I skipped the brown sugar, doubled the onion, and added some liquid smoke. Adam loooooved this, and he says he hates chili.
Leftover chili stuffed in a baked potato.
With more cheese, sour cream, and jalopeños, and roasted broccoli on the side(s). This was
cheesy amazing. We need to make baked potatoes more often.
Do you feel like you get enough time with your significant other or does work get in the way?
