What I Ate Yesterday

Bonjour!  We’re on vacation (well, staycation, really) this week and next which is just plain awesome!  This first week has been all about “getting stuff done” so that we can enjoy the second week worry free.  Noah was invited to a birthday party on Monday, Tuesday we hopped over to the next town for some hockey training….yes, hockey never really stopped; just slowed down… and yesterday he had a soccer game.  We’re *this close* to finishing our rec room renovation which is uber exciting!  Can’t wait to have that space back.  Monday we Jason mounted the flat screen TV on the wall and we bought a gorgeous electric fireplace.  Left to do is a wee bit of painting, buy 2 book shelves and some furniture.  I’ll be doing a full recap with before, middle and after photos for you.
In the meantime I thought I’d pop up a quick post on “what I ate yesterday”.  So here we go!
BreakfastIMG_5821 Overnight oats made with a 1/3 cup each vanilla Greek yogurt, unsweetened vanilla almond breeze and oats, 1 tbsp of chia seeds and 1 cup of raspberries.Delicious!!

A Silver Hills bagel toasted and smeared with hummus.  I love this type of lunch when I need something quick and portable!
DinnerIMG_5882 We’ve been continuing our summer eating theme of BBQ and lots of fruit.  This is a turkey sausage with basmati rice and cantaloupe on the side.
Smooth and creamy pineapple, coconut, pecan ice cream from Baskin Robbins.  LOVE!  While out and about I also put back a mango orange coconut frap from ‘Bucks.  IMG_5855 And much snackage happened once these bad boys were opened!IMG_0423
So there we have it.  In actuality, most of my meals have been looking very similar to what I’ve posted here.  Summer just seems to be over ruling my desire to be in the kitchen! 
Before I hit “publish”, I want to post a link to a blog that a good friend of mine has started.  Creating Wellness in My Life chronicles Maddie’s journey to a healthier lifestyle after sorting out some health issues that she’s been dealing with the past few years.  Check her out!!!
Bye for now!!
