Nothing New To Report

How is everyone on this fine Monday evening? Not much happened in my world today which isn’t a bad thing! IMG_0050

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Quaker oats
  • cinnamon
  • dried cranberries
  • almond butter
  • pineapple jam


I’ll never get tired of how creamy almond butter makes my oats.

I spent the day keypunching. Fun times. I had a couple of snacks to help power me through… IMG_0051 IMG_0052 IMG_0059

We found out this morning that the yoga group signed up for another 10 week session but on Monday’s this time. Apparently we can still be in there until 12:40. Fortunately it didn’t affect me today because my lunch this week is 11:30-12:30 so I went on the elliptical anyways.

One of my co workers went to Panera’s this weekend and brought me back an Asiago cheese loaf. What a wonderful surprise that was!! :D IMG_0056

I cut off a small piece at lunch to go with my salad that I packed: IMG_0057

This was a mix of romaine, chickpeas, broccoli, cauliflower, chicken and honey Dijon dressing. Eating this reminded me of warmer days. *sigh*

The boys had hockey at 4:30 and DD had dance at 6 so I put a pork roast in the crock pot this morning in order for everyone to have a hot meal ready when we needed it. The house smelled SO good when I arrived home! I served mine with a thin slice of the Asiago bread and some corn. The cauliflower on the plate went in the trash because it tasted kinda funky. Must’ve been in the fridge too long. IMG_0060

The meat was fork tender. Loved it. I happily ate my way through a piece of b-day cake for dessert. IMG_0061

This was a really good cake. I normally don’t like icing, but this wasn’t too sweet at all. YUM!

I’m currently sipping a cuppa joe and watching Criminal Minds as I type this out. Multi tasking, anyone? LOL! I have a few odds and ends to finish up tonight before I can snuggle under the covers with my book. That’s my favourite time of day…when everyone is asleep and it’s just me and a book. I’m most relaxed then. What’s your favourite time of day and why??

Bye for now!!


  1. I couldn't have an entire loaf of asiago cheese bread in my house... I wouldn't be able to control myself! It would be GONE... :)
