A quickie visit to Miami and a quickie green meal

So much to do, such little time.  And that’s coming from someone who’s not working.  ME.  But I do keep busy.  That’s why I’ve slacked on the blogging.  I’ve been doing some research on something I’m working on, volunteering at church, attending 2 bible studies, running errands, keeping my home nice and clean, doing laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, going to doctor appts, etc, etc…..who the heck has time for a j.o.b?  (journey of the broke).  😦

But seriously, I don’t know where the time goes, and I’m pretty good with time management.  And for the record, because I know what you’re thinking, I only use Facebook while working in other screens.  I’m happy to announce that I’m one of only a few people who doesn’t play Farmville 🙂     It’s kind of interesting that some people I know are on Farmville from morning to night.  Can you say ‘addiction’…. 

Well, this morning I had to go to downtown Miami.  It’s a lovely place until you need a parking spot.  I drove around for 30 minutes and after praying to God, I got a spot right in front of the building I was going to.  Thank you Jesus!!  You’re so good to me.  There are still so many unoccupied, unfinished high rise condo buildings in that area. 










Drove by the Heat Arena …GO HEAT!












And the Freedom Tower……I can’t believe this pic turned out so clear since I was driving.










I lived in Miami for 30 years but am now happy calling the Broward county suburbs my home.

I was starving when I got home and made my favorite quickie meal……tofu over spinach salad and a green smoothie.  I had been marinading the tofu in some Mojo, mustard and spicy sauce. 








Sauteed the tofu with onions and when it was done (15 min.) poured it over some spinach leaves and avocado.

While the tofu was cooking I baked some sweet potato chips and made a green smoothie with banana, strawberries,mango, oj and 2 cups of spinach.






















So yummy and healthy.  What’s your favorite quickie meal?



Today’s masterpiece!

Sometimes I just wonder where my day goes.  I really wanted to do my walk/run this morning but somehow never did.  I got distracted doing other things and before I knew it, it was time to go pick up my nephew at school.  So I regret not going for my walk/run earlier because now the lil’ guy won’t be picked up until after 8:30p tonight.  By that time, I need major motivation to go out and exercise.   Here’s today’s eats so far. 

Breakfast:  Fage yogurt, a peach and 1/2 an apple with cinnamon

Yogurt with fruit


















LUNCH:  Tilapia and salad

Tilapia, yogurt and panko crumbs cooked in 1 tbsp of olive oil for a couple of minutes on each side.  The fish was seasoned with sea salt, pepper and paprika.

I started the salad with baby spinach, tomato and avocado

Then the baby carrots and edamame were boiled for a lil’ bit, rinsed in cold water, and added to the salad.









I sprinkled the fish with a lil’ lemon juice, the salad with pepper and added some balsamic vinegar.

To die for!









And finally, added some lots of feta cheese.









And there you have today’s masterpiece to make up for yesterday’s epic fail.
