As I was getting dinner ready, the husband walked in and asked what was for dinner. I said “croque monsieurs”. He looked at me funny and said “croak monsters?” Oh jeez.
So I guess we had croak monsters and soup for dinner. It’d be a lot better story if it came from a 2 year old and not my husband.
To make the croque monsieurs, I heated up some milk on the stove, and stirred in some Smart Balance & spelt flour. Once it had warmed up, I mixed in some grated Fontina cheese. I kept whisking until it had made a nice, thick sauce.
While the sauce was heating up, I toasted some whole wheat bread, then topped it with brown mustard, provolone, and sliced avocados. I spread a little of the sauce on top of the cheese & avocado, then some more on top of the whole sandwich. Under the broiler for a few minutes and yummy, grown-up grilled cheese was served!
Mmm avocado grilled cheese sandwich- something I never thought would taste good a few years ago….
I also had some Campbell’s Light Mushroom Barley soup. It was just so-so.
I was extra hungry this afternoon, so I did some snacking: Oikos Caramel Greek Yogurt and Kashi Stoneground crackers.
I’m not gonna lie- the yogurt was expired. I ate it anyway. Oh well- I’m still alive 😉 I figure yogurt’s cultured anyway…..
I am just itching to run!! But since I said I was going to take recovery seriously, I didn’t run. Yet. I had to get outside for a bit after work since the sun was shining, so I went for a short walk around the neighborhood, followed by a quickened version of Yoga for Runners. (Meaning I just did some of the poses, I didn’t listen to the class…don’t tell anyone I cheated;))
If the sun is shining tomorrow though, I’m gonna have to get moving a little more 😉
Happy Wednesday!! Hope you have a great evening 🙂
