Solo Saturday

1 Sep

Happy Saturday, everyone! And even more importantly — for my fellow Americans — happy long weekend! I didn’t realize until Wednesday that this Monday would be Labor Day. I am so thankful for an extra day off, even if I will be spending much of the weekend flying solo. My sexy Latin man has been filming all week, and he doesn’t get today or tomorrow off, so Monday will be our only couple time. Single tear.

Before packing him off for the set today, however, I threw together a super simple lunch. His:

Plus an unpictured peach. Mine:

For both, I heated the tortillas in the pan, sauteed the zucchini in spray olive oil with salt and pepper, and then sauteed the portobello separately. For my taco, I spread a tortilla with Dijon and topped with zucchini, mushroom, pepper sauce, and nooch. For his three, I added pre-made barbecue sauce to the pan, let it reduce for a couple of minutes, and then placed it inside the tortillas. He decided to layer the zucchini in his tacos, too. It was quick and tasty.

My plate looks scant for one basic reason:

I ate these “overnight” (or, rather, soaked-for-two-hours) oats basically as soon as he left. They are my usual combination of rolled oats, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, peanut butter, and sliced banana. Delicious and easy.

On the agenda for the rest of the day is food prep (I’m trying out a new recipe tonight — I’ll report back if it’s good), some housework, reading, giving myself a pedicure, and crafting in front of a Netflix marathon — all while fighting the overwhelming desire to take a nap. As you can see, it won’t be a terribly exciting day over here, but I’m trying to make the best of a solo Saturday.

What’s on your agenda today?

I’m off to do some very exciting laundry!
