Working For The Weekend?

Because there's no better way to end a stressful & busy week than 
working weekends on top of spending 6 hours on a Sunday 
cooped up in a room for CPR-C/First Aid Training

And as always, I'm the first person to arrive :)

Don't laugh! I'm tired, bored and completely out-of-it...

After a Clif Builder Bar, Banana and 6 hours later, the week was finally over! 
So I kicked my feet up and enjoyed a nice home cooked Dinner...

Bison Baked Sweet Potato with lean bison, kale, tomato, onion, salsa and black pepper

This would taste really good with tempeh or tofu too :)

But alas it's Monday, and back to a regular working week.... sigh

Questions: What did you do this weekend?
 Did you enjoy any yummy meals you care to share?

I baked my butt off this weekend and enjoyed time with my boys while my husband was away for work all weekend. That sweet potato looks amazing! I hope you have a great week!

Oh, that is one packed yummy looking potato. sorry you had to attend a boring class on a Sunday. That's poop. But it's done now - yay! I worked yesterday for about 2 hours and spent the rest of the day feeling sorry for myself. LOL Yeah, it was a rainy day.

I've had to do that training in the past and it just stressed me out thinking what I would have to do in an emergency. Kudos to you for getting it over with. I played with my new juicer this weekend!

Wow wow wow... super amazing concoction you've got right there! I ate brown rice, lentils, and split peas topped with avocado last night... not very exciting but certainly delicious! :)

Marie said... [reply]

That baked potato looks awesome! I love the greens. I should try something like this. :)


Geraldine said... [reply]

That looks amazing! I've never had bison. But I definitely will if I get over to that side of the world! Your pictures are drool-inducing ;-)

haha...i'm always the first to arrive too. i'm terrified of being late. :p my weekend was pretty tame, had date night with the hubby and caught up with friends. your dinner looks delish, btw! i think i'd try it with tofu. ;)

Kittie said... [reply]

How do you cook your kale? I've tried it a number of times but it stays tough and grassy.

Kath (My Funny Little Life) said... [reply]

Mmmmmmmmmmm, looks very good! What was the first aid course for? Driving lessons?

M weekend was quite relaxed. Met and friend on Saturday and spent most of my day at home on Sunday, writing on my thesis and practicing the piano. And I went for a run, finally! :D

I definitely read in a yoga magazine recently that Bison is very healthy. Looks verrry tasty.
P.S. got your package and it made my day. Thank you so much =)

Jessica said... [reply]

I was racing my half marathon on Sunday and ended up so tired by the evening I had a giant green smoothie for dinner. It was delicious though and I probably used about 100g of PB in it ;)

I wish I had one of your sweet potatoes though! I can thick of so many great toppings for them...one for every day of the week pretty much.

Congrats for surviving such a long training session! I have a terrible attention span and would be going stir-crazy after six hours.


Mary said... [reply]

That reminds me..I supposed to do that soon, too. Yay for getting to play with Dummy Bob!

Missy said... [reply]

You saw my hummy (I'm ripping off Lara bar - Hum food) sweet potato fiesta salad.

Love the savory spin on the sweets I'm inspired.

Missy said... [reply]

PS -- you had to "make out" with the mannequin didin't you?
And when I trained I always shuddered at the thought of "Don't worry if you crack the sternum."

Best take-away? "YOU. NO, YOU. Go call 911" rather than "Someone call 911"

Forget my food and forget my weekend. Let's talk about your amazing dinner some more!

Kelsey @ Clean Teen Kelsey said... [reply]

Good luck with your First Aid training! I love the sweet potato action. :) You are awesome! Your stir-fries look wonderful.

I love your stuffed taters! And good luck with First Aid, I had to take that class one quarter and um...I have forgotten most everything. Except CPR and the heimlich, I do vaguely have an idea of what to do!

Anonymous said... [reply]

I just made myself an identical dinner! But with tofu noodles instead of the sweet potato. The sweet potato definitely takes it a step further though and now I'm jealous!
I feel that we may have a lot in common... I have recently gone gluten-free as well, hoping that it would alleviate stomach, mood, energy issues as well. Good luck with your experimenting!

Wow what is a bison sweet potato!? It looks amazing!

Chelsea said... [reply]

Aww I've had to spend weekends cooped up doing first aid stuff too! It's brutal! Mine actually expired though so I have to take it again soon... I just don't want to spend another weekend doing it! :P

This weekend I went on a date and had a foodie adventure with my friend!

Sarah said... [reply]

Aw cutie haha look at you bright and early at the First Aid training session! We just did a CPR certify session in dental school (kind of a cop out session for us.. only lasted an hours - haha please don't be too jealous! 6 hours sounds brutal!) but you made it! And I hope you enjoyed your weekend! Your food is looking amazing as always. I am SO going to be a better blogger from here on out, and I have been keeping up with yours!

This weekend, I FINALLY had a weekend without 24/7 studying and it was AMAZING! I did nothing special and it felt great :) I have ventured into trying almond milk and putting some foods back into my diet - so it was a pretty successful weekend :)
