How was everyone’s weekend? Although mine was busy, it was a good busy. Yesterday consisted of 1.5hrs of soccer, 1.5hrs of hockey and dinner at my parents place for my sister’s birthday. Soccer practice was pretty cool at 8am, but no rain so it was all good and hockey was at a mall that has a rink in it so some window shopping ensued.
Because we had to leave the house rather early I toasted an Ezekiel English muffin and topped it with sunflower seed butter and zucchini jam:
And yes, it was still dark enough that the flash went off! Yikes! As soon as we got home I hopped into a nice hot shower to take the chill out of my bones, then I made a cup of coffee and read all your fabulous blogs until it was time to head out again. Oh! And I made lunch to go, too!
This Silver Hills sandwich is layered with a LC cheese wedge, mortadella, tomato (from my garden), lettuce and dijonnaise. Lip smacking good! I’m not generally a sandwich kinda girl, but ones like these make me wonder why I don’t eat them more often.
We had a great meal at Mom’s. That just goes without saying! I didn’t seem to pack too many veg in, though!
Sweet potato fries, zucchini and bean salad, chicken breast and a small piece of steak. I wasn’t too concerned about the lack of veggies’ on my plate when I spied my hubby’s meal:
Holy meat! And he was in heaven! :) Dessert was a family favourite that only makes an appearance a few times a year; Drumstick Cheesecake:
Hit. The. Spot. As I sit here typing this I realize that we never did sing Happy Birthday to my sister! Funny how she got outta that one turning a quarter of a century and all! Here we are:
I woke up to a massive thunder boom this morning. Thanks, Mother Nature! We had some serious rain for about 15 minutes and then the sun came out like nothing had ever happened. Weird, but I was glad to have it out of the way so the kids didn’t get drenched walking to school.
I knew I wanted to crack open my new bottle of maple agave today but didn’t have the inclination to get too fancy with breakfast so I just topped my oats wit it:
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup Quaker oats
What a delight! I’ll never complain abut dessert-like breakfast food. I have a feeling this bottle won’t last me too long and it was the only lonely on the shelf at Winners. Boo!
Morning snack-a-roo was a Clif Mojo bar:
Nice, bright yellow file folder under there! I’m on 12:30 lunch so when I got to the gym the elliptical was open. Perfect! I hammered out 45 sweaty minutes while watch SYTYCD Canada reruns. Lonchi was 2 garden tomatoes topped with half a can of tuna; nice and simple.
As I mentioned last week I had full intentions of getting back into menu planning. Here is what this week is looking like commitment and food wise:
Monday-dance (6-7:30) hockey-out of town (5:30-8:30)
**pulled pork sandwiches
**Chicken stir fry
**pork chops/noodles (fam) & veg
**tuna melts & Caesar salad
So, pulled pork tonight it was! I put a pork shoulder in the crock pot this morning with some salt & pepper and set it on low for the day. When my hubby got home he shred the meat and added the BBQ sauce. The boys ate at that point because they had to leave the house by 5pm. DD and I ate our sandwiches after they left.
This also had a wedge of garlic & herb LC cheese on it. Dessert was some sliced strawberries with just a tad of vanilla ice cream:
So DD is now at dance, the boys are gone and I’ve got some baking in the oven that I’ll post about tomorrow. I still have almost an hour to myself and I think I’m gonna make a tea and read my book. Sounds perfect!
