April 12 of 12

So it's the 12th of the month again, which means another 12 of 12. After this month, only seven more. I guess I'll have to find something else to put in the place of 12 of 12 :( As always, visit Chad's website to see what everyone else was doing today. All these pictures were taken in sunny Gilbert, Arizona.

8:30 am - My own little friendly reminder to document my day.

1:00 pm - Fast forward a few hours where all I did was make phone calls for work. Going to watch the game while I'm typing cases.

3:45 pm - On my way to Crossfit. It was really windy today and apparently it was blowing in cooler weather (which is fine with me).

3:55 pm - Getting ready to go in for Crossfit. The work out of the day, 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats, over and over again for 20 minutes, to see how many sets you can do in the time allotted. I managed to finish 14 rounds.

5:00 pm - Documenting the workout so that next time we do the same workout, I can see what I need to beat.

5:15 pm - I pass a row of Bougainvillea bushes coming into the neighborhood. They are just finishing up their peak bloom, and are beautiful.

6:15 pm - Emptying the dishwasher before I start on dinner.

6:30 pm - The filling I made for the stuffed pork chops. It's marscarpone cheese, roasted red peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes.

6:40 pm - I realized after I already stuffed the chops that the stuffing will not stay in while it is grilling, so I left the extra out so that we could top the chop when it was done.

7:00 pm - While the pork chops were grilling, I checked out the sunset, and also realized that I took an almost exact same picture for last month's 12 of 12.

7:00 pm - Checking on the start of some (hopefully) sweet and delicious San Marzano tomatoes.

7:30 pm - Dinner. The chops covered in the cheese mixture and wilted spinach with balsamic and bacon bits. Yummy!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my day. See you next month.

  3. I'm so glad you posted about your dinner... I have an extra tub of mascarpone in the fridge (from stuffed french toast) and was wondering what I could use it for before it goes bad! Looks yummy!!
