Getting Rest & Bird Obsession

Not much going on this weekend. I have been attacked by the creeping crud and am just trying to rest and recover as quickly as possible.  Most of my meals have been raiding the leftovers.

I sauteed leftover steak and green beans from one meal and asparagus from another. I added a little sweet chili sauce and put it in corn tortillas. It was surprisingly good.
I made a wrap with leftover sheet pan chicken from the other night. It was actually much better cold and the mustard tarragon was tasty with the avocado and spinach.
I love loads of fresh berries in my oatmeal. You can't help but feel better eating colorful foods.

In between meals, I've pretty much been resting, watching t.v. and Netflix (House of Cards came out Friday) with my faithful and bed-hogging pups I  am pretty sure their loyalty is to my plate and not me specifically.

  I don't think I have quite reached my water goals, but I have been refilling my glasses often.
I am thankful for my March Food Photo Log. When I am sick I tend to want to eat everything in site, but knowing that I have to take a picture to post has kept me more focused. Mentally, I have also felt good about pulling together healthy meals.

To wrap up a few more pictures from the zoo. I was a little obsessed with the birds this time.

Not exactly sure that I want to be known as a Thick-knee. If they are referring to this bird's legs I am just not seeing thick knees. My biologist niece (who worked at the zoo for several years) explained that birds' knees are actually higher and covered by their feathers. The joint we see is actually an ankle not a backwards knee.

I think I am going to take a nap. What are you up to this weekend?


  1. Love the bird pics and food pics! I hope you feel better soon!

  2. I hope you are feeling better!!!!!

  3. I hope you feel better soon! Lots of bloggers have been sick lately. I hope it's not e-contagious:)

    Are you loving House of Cards? I still have 4 episodes left.

    1. I think it is that time of the year...hopefully I am not sending out any viruses ;) Yes, we like this season so much better than last. Now to wait another year..sigh.

  4. I just saw the thick-knee at our zoo and thought the same thing about its poor name. :)
