Dinner Pancakes

This post has got to be right down to business because I’ve got me some TV to watch!! :D Just got back from Pilate’s and SYTYCD Canada is on and then The Biggest Loser follows that. I can be such a couch potato!

I took breakfast to work with me today because DS had a 7:30am doctors appointment and I didn’t feel like eating beforehand. Please excuse my orange stained, plastic dollar store bowl! 100_6508

-2/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
-splash of milk
-carob chips, shaved coconut & walnut pieces 100_6505

I did this in the microwave and it was surprisingly good! I’m so used to the stove top method now that I tend to forget how creamy the oats become when nuked.

Work, work, work….blah, blah, blah! ;) Here’s my tea quote of the day; 100_6510

GYM! Yes. More Rach today with a little Christian Slater on the side. For all who may be interested, Hungry Girl will be on the show tomorrow. You bet I let out a little yelp when I saw that!

I should mention that I was on the elliptical today…

Lunch was a simple one. A Stonemill bagel with a shmear of almond butter; 100_6513

These bagels seriously reminded me of croissants. They were flakey and buttery and delicious. I also ate these monster sized grapes; 100_6509

Aren’t they HUGE?! I also grabbed some fruit salad from the work kitchen which looked pretty tasty, but was not. 100_6514

I only ended up eating the grapes and pineapple. I’m not a big fan of fruit when all the flavours blend together. What I ate actually tasted like it’s suppose to. Just before going home I snacked on a piece of apple butter bread. 100_6515

I know that I ate this mostly out of boredom, but at least I stayed of out the office candy bowl and stuck to something wholesome and homemade!

When I got home there was a treat in the mailbox! 100_6516

There was a little pouch of cereal in here that I plan on trying out very soon!

Dinner was a cool one tonight! My hubby grilled sausages for the fam and some Yves veggie burgers for me. While he was at that, I was making some super cool corn cakes. I didn’t make the bean topping, only the ‘cakes. On my plate I had some reheated ambercup squash and a burger on top of a corn cake with some Fage and peach pineapple salsa; 100_6517

I turned this into a burger that I ate with a fork and knife. I left for Pilates pretty much as soon as dinner was over. And now it’s time for me to sign off and get to my TV watching!

Bye for now!!

    ps--I had a bunch of stained containers too, and I soaked em in hot water with about 3 TBSP baking soda. Leave em sit over night, and they were practically like new in the morning! Sprinkle the baking soda first before the water though :-)
