So today my little munchkin turned 8 years old. Holy cow!! Really, I can’t figure out where the heck 8 years went. It’s all just a blur to me. Here are “before and after” pictures:
LOL! He sure has grown up on me. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, baby cakes!! He likes to read my comments so why not drop him a line?
DS started out the day at 5am in order to be on the ice for 6. That meant I was at the rink for 7. Fun times. I promised him breakfast out afterwards so I made a big tea to go and munched on a few cashews to tie me over. We ended up at a diner that was half way between the rink and their school for some eats. I actually had a really good meal! I ordered a 3 egg white omelette that was stuffed with tomato, feta and spinach. Potatoes and WW toasted rounded out the dish;
I normally don’t like hash browns but these were fab! I ate a good half of what you see plus 2 pieces of the toast with my eggs. Very satisfying indeed.
I didn’t start to get hungry until about 4ish hours later. That’s when I pulled out some nuts:
The gym was in use today for yoga so I took the opportunity to run to the bakery and get DS’s b-day cake ordered for his party on Sunday. He asked for a hockey themed one. Big shocker there! HA! Then I went home to grab a little lunch.
The rest of last nights quinoa and chickpeas with some freshly grated parm on top. Here’s what I ate for an afternoon snack:
That’s a decaf coffee there from Tim’s…
We had a “grab a leftover” from the fridge type of dinner because DD had skating lessons which start at 5:30 and I work until 4:30 this week. My hubby ended up taking her because he had a pick up to make on that side of town. That was a nice treat. For my meal I toasted a WW Ezekiel muffin and topped it with a LC cheese wedge, pomegranate jelly and egg whites. There was also some broc on the side:
Once the dishes were cleaned up I set out to make some muffins. I’ve been wanting to bake something for quite sometime but haven’t been home enough! Ha! Here’s the recipe:
