Blue Cheese Coleslaw

I didn’t post anything yesterday because I didn’t want to bore you to death.

Monday was Labor Day

That’s not the boring part.  The boring part is my life.

Just kidding.  You know it is never boring around the Beach House.  I just didn’t take too many pictures over the past couple of days, so not too much to share.  Monday was a rest day for me.  I went over to my sister’s in the afternoon and hung out with family.

I brought coleslaw to go with the pulled pork and chicken sandwiches we were having.

I used Ina Garten’s Blue Cheese Coleslaw recipe.  I split the ingredients in half and put blue cheese in one and made the other plain.  I thought it was really good.  Justin thought it was too mustard-y.  The best part about making coleslaw is using the blade attachments on my food processor.  It took about 5 seconds to shred all that cabbage you see in the picture.  I have another attachment for grating the carrots, which took about 2 seconds! Love my food processor!

Yesterday

I started the day on the elliptical.  I hadn’t done that in a while so it was a nice change.  I did 3 miles and burned 300 calories.

Sara kept me company while I was getting my sweat on.

My plan was to head to Pilates, but I didn’t eat, for some reason, all morning and was starving.  So, instead of Pilates, I ate egg whites with one whole egg and gluten free toast.

Yesterday was also Taco Tuesday!

Justin wanted me to take a picture of his too. (Always trying to steal the spotlight!)

After lunch we went to Bed, Bath & Beyond for some new pillows and ended up with a giant bag filled with stuff we “needed”.

I slept like a baby last night on my new pillow!

Hope everyone had a fun holiday weekend!  The last HURRAH of summer!  Although, yesterday had a heat index of 104, so it would have been a great day for the pool.  Too bad they are all closed now.

    1. Yes, I love the pillow I bought. I've only used it for one night but I slept great. Also, we bought middle-of-the-road pillows because we didn't want to pay $60+ for a pillow and there were about 100 pillows to choose from. The pillow was $40, so if it last several months, I'll feel like we got our money's worth.

  2. Don't forget about the new pillow CASE, I think that is what made them awesome.
