Increasing Productivity


I truly believe that vacations are essential to life. Today, I was much more productive than I’ve been in weeks. I knocked out a lot of stuff at work, and despite almost giving in to a sauna nap, I spent some time on the stair climber and even managed to save some energy for cooking and cleaning.


Wine county left me with a serious craving for a french baguette, so I worked one into my dinner yesterday. I’m a big fan of having fun sandwiches for dinner, but Matt’s rarely in the mood, given he eats a sandwich every day for lunch. I think he was having vacation withdrawal too because he was the one who suggested we splurge and spend $4 on fresh mozzarella:)

I marinated the tomatoes for about an hour in balsamic, olive oil, basil, and a tiny bit of sugar.

Mmmm…the bread and fresh cheese were soo satisfying, but now I have a craving for Europe.
For tonight’s dinner, it was back to my usual naan flatbread, this time topped with pesto, dates, and blue cheese.

With a side of barbecued brussels.

Other than cooking and getting back into the swing of things at work, there’s really not much going on. I can’t believe its March already…my time here is ending soo soon: /

    Yum! That sandwich looks SO GOOD. I’d never think of using naan as a pizza, but that’s a great idea!
