As I danced around in a beautiful dream, a piercing sound filled the air. What was this noise and why was it ruining my dance. A few moments later I came to my senses and realized it was not a dream but rather my alarm clock. Was it really 3:45AM? Why was it going off? Why can’t I just sleep? And then it hit me… I have to get to the airport.
Bright and early this morning I began my journey back to DC. I arrived at the airport at 4:45AM, checked my bag, went through security and then made my way to Starbucks. It wasn’t much of a surprise to see a line of 25 people, but at 5:10AM, a line at Starbucks is worth it!
I ordered a grande coffee and added 2 packets of splenda and a little half and half. I settled into my gate and nestled up to my warm cup of Joe. I didn’t grab anything to eat as it was still really early but anticipated needing something when I got back to DC. Today is my first Meatless Monday and I’m looking forward to trying out new recipes and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I highly doubt I’ll try a new recipe tonight, as I just got back to DC, but there will be some new recipes in the upcoming weeks.
After landing, I stopped by a Panera and grabbed a Mediterranean Veggie sandwich. It’s loaded with lots of yummy veggies, feta cheese and a pesto spread. It’s one of my favorites…. regardless of Meatless Monday.
I’m not sure what this afternoon/evening will hold. I’m sure I’ll have a coke zero in my future and another coffee… but I’m not sure about dinner. Either way, it’s good to be home!
What’s your favorite Meatless Meal?
