Had my oats for breakfast yesterday:
- 1/2 cup each coconut milk & water
- 1/2 cup Old Wessex 5 grain cereal
- chocolate raspberry latter powder
- honey & raspberries
The first part of the day was spent on chores. YUCK! My hubby had hockey for most of the day and I decided that being stuck in the house with the kids didn’t sound too appealing. So I decided that after groceries and lunch we would go to the movies. I was feeling like something Italian-ish to eat so I sliced half of a Tofurky sausage and mixed it with green pepper, cottage cheese and salsa:
I nuked it until the cottage cheese got all gooey then used it as a dip with some Dr. Kracker flatbreads: May not look pretty, but it was exactly what I was after! :)
So we decided to go see Despicable Me.
What a FANTASTIC movie! Can you believe that I’ve never seen anything in 3D before? Loved it! Cheesy glasses and all!!
The main character had this wicked accent that I can’t place, but it made the movie that much better, IMO. Have you seen this movie? What did you think?? I did enjoy a chai tea latte during the movie…
It was 5:30 before we arrived home and we were all pretty hungry. I pulled out the George Foreman for some pork chops and served them along side the last of the pasta.
I had a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich for dessert. I’ve decided that I don’t really like these as much as I thought. They melt really fast and the ice cream seems to be just air. Ya know what I mean? It’s like there’s nothing to it. Hmmm…
We were awake early for soccer this morning. They actually played 2 games against another city. It was still damp and drizzly which didn’t do much for DS’s hair (which he has decided to grow out)
LOL! Looks like he stuck his finger in an electrical socket! This is what he looked like when he left the house: Backing up a bit; I had a bowl of Kashi U prior to leaving the house.
Lunch was a “BLT”,
SO glad these babies are back in my life. Tempeh bacon and all! ;) The kids had friends over all afternoon and I got busy in the kitchen with zucchini. My hubby and I pulled out the food processor and grated 4 large zukes.
I bagged and froze nine 1 cup baggies for later use. This will be very handy for baking, soups, sauces, etc. I’m more likely to use it if it’s already prepped. Two cups of it went towards a recipe for zucchini walnut bars.
I subbed out some of the flour for this chia flour:
It worked beautifully! And upped the nutritional value of the bars.
I wanted to make something quick for dinner so I turned to a Rachael Ray magazine for a 30 minute meal idea. This was a Korean pork noodle bowl and indeed took 30 minutes to make. And it was superb!!! Check out my plateful: We just got home from my parents place and I’m getting set to watch SYTYCD Canada. I have to go into work tomorrow because I need Friday off this week for a trip into the city so I’ll have to be sure to get to bed early tonight. And so I must sign off! ;)
Bye for now!!
