I indulged...

I left work yesterday tired & tight. I've been working so much lately & have just been exhausted. So yesterday afternoon I called my massage place & booked an hour massage at 6pm. It was phenomenal!! The guy used a more forceful (I don't know if that is the correct word) technique which is just what I needed to work out my kinks in my back & shoulders. I left there so happy & relaxed. I'm going back next week. :) So my indulgence will probably turn into a twice a month therapy.

Since it was about 7pm when I left eh massage place, I ran into the store to grab some things for a salad. Mr. Potts adores my salads - Chicken Fajita Salad, Gorgonzola and Beef Salad, etc. Last night I grabbed a rotisserie chicken, some goat cheese, a small bag of walnuts, red seedless grapes, a Granny Smith apple and a red pear. It was wonderful last night with a little Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing. I also picked up a large bag of the spring mix so I could eat off of it all week. Mr. Potts asked what I was going to name this one & after pondering, decided to call it the Fruit and Chicken Salad. There are times when he requests them by name. :)

Tonight we're having homemade Roasted Butternut Squash soup topped with toasted pine nuts. I was trying really hard to think of something to go along with it & decided to pick up a loaf of sourdough bread & some fresh Fontina cheese. It will be done very similarly to an open faced grilled cheese. Slice the bread, add the cheese and broil. I can't wait for dinner!

Happy Tuesday to you all! Will you have a busy or a slow day today? Is anyone already thinking about what they'll eat for dinner tonight?

I wish I was eatting your fruit and chicken salad tonight!
We are eatting left over beef tenderlion from Christmas. It's still really good! The butternut squash soup would be perfect with it.

Yum, those salads sound awesome! And I LOVE butternut squash soup, though with crushed pistachios on top. So delish!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Followed you here from SITS.

I will not GET a massage today but I will GIVE one. I am a massage therapist. Forceful is a good word for the pressure he used :) Glad you enjoyed it. Nothing better than an awesome massage!!

Your salads sound delicious!

I had a fantastic massage also a couple of weeks ago at Gould's in the Peabody (Memphis). The massage therapist there worked wonders. It's great (and necessary)to get relief from that tense feeling.
