Hello everybody! How was your weekend? Are you catching up on posts? Click here to see my brand new kitchen toys! So, yesterday marked our 12 year wedding anniversary! We didn’t do anything special, never really have, but the weather was great and the day was spend at Costco, at a gold exchange party (me & DD) and out in the sun planting some annuals in my flower beds. By some miracle we were both out of bed before the kids and ate our breakfast in peace before they came down. I got creative with 2 pieces of whole grain bread by turning it into French toast:
I soaked the bread in a mixture of Egg Beaters, USVAB, vanilla and cinnamon and then cooked them until golden brown in one of my new RR pans. They then received some 5 star treatment in the form of honey pecan butter and sliced strawberries!
Spectacular! The density of the bread worked wonders with the egg mixture. I thoroughly enjoyed this meal.
The rest of the morning was spent at Costco. Surprisingly, the only things I bought were flowers and a box of Kashi Cinnamon Harvest cereal! I guess I didn’t really need anything else. The main reason I went there was to drop some photos off to be plaqued. I didn’t bother taking a picture of my lunch because it was the same as dinner the night before….Yves veggie hotdogs….and they were just as tasty! I grabbed a treat to enjoy while driving out to the gold exchange.
These are also from Costco, but were bought on another trip. We were back by 3pm which gave me lots of time to get my front flower beds looking decent. I still have a bit more to go, but nothing that will take too long!
My hubby cooked up a beer butt chicken on the BBQ for dinner and I grilled a full bunch of asparagus to go along with it. We used some of this BBQ sauce that my hubby bought at Costco:
YUM! This has a great tang to it….and I don’t even like beer. Here’s my plate with the chicken a random shrimp and asparagus:
Dessert was some coconut pineapple ice cream:
I was back to my regular oats for breakfast this morning…
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup Quaker oats
-2 tbsp Enjoy Life Food trail mix
I’m on early lunch (11:30am) this week so I just packed a light snack to eat before heading off to the gym:
Whole grain bread with a LC cheese wedge.
I hopped on the elliptical today as yoga started at noon and it’s the quietest piece of machinery in there. I can sneak a full 45 minutes on yoga Monday when on the early lunch which makes me happy because if I’m gonna skip a day in the gym I’d rather it be later on in the week.

And it’s your lucky day *roll eyes* because I felt frisky enough to snap a few shots of my newest Lululemon shorts.
These are the same “line” as DD got for her b-day called “groovy run short”. I also have a pair in plain black. They’re extremely comfortable and can be worn for leisure as well.
Lunch was nice and fresh tasting! I mixed WW couscous with tomato, cucumber, chicken breast, white balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt. (I’ve always enjoyed my cukes and maters with a little salt)
The only thing that would’ve made this better would have been some feta. Next time, perhaps! My afternoon snack was sliced strawberries and blackberries:
We pass a strawberry patch on our way to Costco and I noticed the little white blossoms on all the plants yesterday. That can only mean great things!
There’s nothing on the agenda tonight. I’ll be heading out in a few to get DD from dance class. My newly planted flowers have been watered and the boys are hanging shelves in the garage. The weather today was cooler than what was forecasted so it’s not nice enough (for me) to hang about outside. Maybe I’ll do some baking. Be sure to visit again tomorrow because I’ll be doing another product review!!
Bye for now!!
