Hello, hello! Well, I took a food blogging break yesterday to post a Green Pan product review so we have some eats to catch up on today. Ready, set….GO!!
I had brunch plans with the girl’s yesterday morning but knew my belly would never make it until 11am without something in it so I whipped up a strawberry kefir smoothie:
In this gem we have 1 cup thawed strawberries, 1 tsp of honey and 1 cup kefir. This was the perfect choice in that it kept the hunger at bay but didn’t fill me up so much that I didn’t enjoy my eats.
I love meeting with my girls! The 4 of us used to work together but have since all gone our separate ways. We try to get together for some type of meal every few months. One Chiquita now lives in MI so weekends are obviously best for her. We met at a popular breakfast joint known for its good food and I was not disappointed in the least with my meal. I started out a bit luxurious with a chai tea latte:
OMG is all I have to say about how good this was. Then I went a bit “healthier” with 2 poached eggs, rye toast and a fruit cup.
Good food + good company = a great Sunday morning!
I had about an hour to myself before the fam came home from the farm and my brother came over with my niece and nephew. It was so good to see the kids again…it’s been FAR too long. The kids *just* traded Christmas presents! Granted, they live 2hrs away so such is life sometimes. Better late than never, right? It was warm enough on my deck yesterday (it’s protected from the wind and was 15*C!!) that the kids pulled out the patio cushions and hung out.
LOL! It was wonderful for them to get some fresh air instead of being cooped up inside.
My babes requested pasta for dinner once our company was gone and I had no issues with making such an easy meal seeing as I had a container of sauce in the freezer ready to go! I plated myself 1 cup of high fibre pasta (10g!!!!) and a half cup of marinara. A little freshly grated parm was the finishing touch!
While the pasta was cooking a small piece of pizza from Saturday mysteriously ended up in my hand!
Love cold pizza!
Aside from a few random pieces of chocolate and 2 cookies at my parents place, that’s all she wrote for food on Sunday! I watched The Amazing Race and Criminal Minds while my hubby watched the hockey game. In light of the outcome, I’m glad I skipped it. Meh.
The kids were off school today for a PD day so the usual morning routine was a bit more relaxed. DS spent the day at hockey camp (surprise, surprise) and DD went to the sitter for the morning and then spent the afternoon with my Mom. Lucky bums!
Not only was my breakfast scrumptious today, but it stayed with me forever! I wasn’t even really hungry by 12:30pm! Here’s the deets:
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup Quaker oats
-warmed up strawberries
Oh lala! And I may not have been very hungry, but there’s always room for chocolate, right? ;)
There was a yoga class in the gym today and I’m late lunch (12:30) so I couldn’t make it in. I went home instead and did a load of laundry. Fun times. The weather today is as crappy as yesterday was nice! Check out my windshield when I got into the Jeep to go home:
Once the laundry was doing its thing I re heated Saturday’s homemade pizza and showed it who was boss:
I picked the bacon off and fed it to my oldest cat who deemed me his BFF….until there was no more bacon, that is! But shhh….my hubby doesn’t like when I feed the cats “people” food! LOL!
The boys were at hockey from 4:30 until 6 so after I came home from getting DD at my parents place I made a very quick, simple dinner. There was some leftover potatoes, onions and pan juice from Thursday’s pork tenderloin so I popped that into a pan with a bit of water and set a few haddock fillets in to poach. Edamame added colour to the plate.
Can you believe I’m still eating this???? Thank God it’s almost gone! I just got back from picking DD up from dance class. The roads are pretty slick so I’m happy to be off them. I just made a coconut chai tea latte to sip while relaxing on the couch. I used 1 cup of USVAB, 1/2 a cup water and this tea:
Love. Anyways, I’m gonna sign off for now. Hope you all had a fantastic Monday!!
Bye for now!
