Fantastic Day

13 Mar

Has the Daylight Saving Time affected you?

It surely affected me..sort of – I got up at 8:00 am (which was technically 7:00 am prior the Daylight Saving Time) and proceeded with my morning workout. 12 minutes interval training ended up 22 minutes because I forgot to do one of the exercise and didn’t realize it until I went thru the whole round and the timer still kept going.

But it gave me a nice sweaty workout, perfect to kick off my Sunday morning.

Post workout meal -noshed on these roasted kabocha slathered with coconut oil…YUM!

Paired up with my usual loose leaf tea. DOUBLE YUM!

I did my house chores (vacuuming the carpeted area, including the 4 fly stairs -one by one!) yesterday so today I could sit and relaxed a bit.

Not a total relaxed day- had to do 3 loads of laundry.

Finally did our taxes! We did it our own – no need to pay someone to do it.

I felt a little creative with our lunch so I made Baked Stuffed Pears and Roasted 100% Organic Grass Fed Beef I got from Sprouts with Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes and arranged everything nicely.

K’s plate – he doesn’t really like raw veggies, so I steamed some nappa cabbage for the greens.

This was my first time trying 100% Organic Grass Fed Beef. My opinion? It tasted less fatty than the grain fed and it has a stronger beef flavor.

Today’s beef recipe was super simple that I don’t think it’s even worth its own recipe page.

Roast Beef with Fire Roasted Tomatoes
Basically you just season the beef with salt, pepper and lemon juice-marinate for an hour or overnight.

Topped with Muir Glen Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes.

Bake for about 1 hour in 300-325°F

Serve with veggies of your choice.

Do you like Daylight Saving Time?
In some ways I do, because the day is longer and I like it when it’s still bright when I get off from work. It feels like my day isn’t over yet. Besides, I dislike driving at night. For some reason people just drive slow when it’s dark.

    Yay for a great day! And thank you so much for posting the roast beef recipe, now I can try that myself soon! 😀

    I hate DST because it gets me out of my rhythm so much, and I don’t like when it doesn’t get dark on summer evenings. Takes away so much of the ambience!

    Your steak marinade sounds good. I’ll have to try that sometime. I’m not sure if I like grass fed beef. I know this is going to sound weird, but grass fed beef tastes too beefy for me.
