Well, the good news is, I wasn’t picked for jury duty and now have fulfilled my civil duty for the next 4-5 years [insert: sigh of relief]. However, I myself, was found guilty of excessive Nutella consumption. I blame it on the judicial system.
But first, I was smart enough to photograph my breakfast, lunch and snacks before going to Jury Assembly, so as to prevent my camera from being confiscated like yesterday. For breakfast, I had an orange and a Kashi Toasted Honey 7-grain granola bar. This was my first time trying the Kashi bar, and although I really wanted to love this and did love the flavor, it was just too crumbly, making it difficult to eat. I’m sure they won’t go to waste though . For lunch I put together a ham and provolone sandwich on 7-grain bread from the bakery and some baby carrots. I also picked up some really nice red grapes the other day and had those as a mid-afternoon snack. I was more prepared with my water goal for the day too, packing a 34 oz Nalgene with a big lemon wedge to drink on the train.
Everything was conveniently packed up in my NYC half-marathon lunch box. I just love race freebies!
Jury Duty was pretty uneventful. I was called to serve on a panel, but was dismissed because I’m visiting my sister in Charleston, SC from Thursday night thru Monday afternoon. Yey!
At the end of the day, I received my notice of service and high-tailed it home to relax. I also snacked on a handful of pistachios. Stormy was eye-ing these up. I may or may not have snacked on one of my Valentine’s Day chocolates before dinner too…mmm…
For dinner I had a huuuuuuuuge salad with leftover rotisserie chicken from Sunday night’s quick dinner. This consisted of romaine hearts, tomato, baby carrots, sliced bell pepper and white meat from the chicken roast. Topped with a little balsamic dressing and de-lish!
As I was sitting on the couch, I remembered the Nutella from my Black & White Stuffed Strawberries, and decided to have a little taste. I quickly learned that dipping a spoon into a jar of Nutella is never a good idea. Guilty as charged. What’s your guilty pleasure?
That jar is going to the back of the baking cabinet until the next Nutella recipe calls.
I’m relieved to get back to my normal schedule tomorrow of going to the gym, then work. With jury duty, I had to catch a Metro North train instead of the subway, and that station is about a mile walk from my house. With the fixed schedule, strict jury check-in and walk, I wasn’t able to get to the gym in the morning. I also have some business to take care of at work.
