Today marked one of the rare days that I got the house ALL to myself! Two and a half hours, to be exact! DS had hockey practice from 4:45-6:05 and then they drove one of his team mates home. DD went along to hang out with one of the boys sisters who she has taking a real liking to. Don’t get me wrong….I love my family, but it’s a real treat to be at the house by myself once in a blue moon!
- 1 cup coffee
- 1/3 cup sunrise blend w/ quinoa
- almond butter
- Crofter’s ASIA preserves
- cinnamon sugar
Using coffee is quickly becoming a favourite of mine! I like to use tea, too….I just always forget to brew it the night before. I should get on that when I’m done here!
I found this lonely only hiding out in the back of the fridge. Chances are it came home from somebody’s lunch and just got tossed in the fridge (in a baggie, of course!)
I was psyched to get to the gym today because they installed the TV’s….finally! I think I got a little too excited because I was really dragging my ass by the end of the run. I slowed the speed down a bit for the last 5 minutes I was huffing so bad! DOH!

I can tell just by those stats that it was a toughie!!
I turned last night’s leftovers into a great lunch. I warmed up the rest of the bell peppers and a small piece of chicken and rolled them up into a flatout wrap that has a LC cheese wedge spread on it. On the side there were some orange slices and grapes;
When I arrived home I changed into comfy, warm clothes, made a coffee and plopped myself on the couch for some Food TV. *bliss* I got started on dinner about 6pm. DS likes pasta in a big way after hockey so I combined some ground beef with a good 4 cups of homemade marinara sauce then combined it with 2 packages of store bought ravioli. That mixture went into an oven safe dish and got sprinkled with a combo of panko crumbs and marble cheese. 30 minutes in the oven and voila!
I ate maybe 4 of the ravioli….yummy! That's my pasta limit, though. For myself I baked up some butternut squash fries using one of the squash picked from the garden yesterday and I also made some bok choy with a little Ted Readers peach bourbon sauce. That blob is Dijonnaise;
THANKS, POM Wonderful! I can’t wait to try this tea. It looks so refreshing. Well, I just finished helping with homework and now I plan to grab a bit of dessert. I’m thinking a slice of banana butternut loaf with some almond butter. Mmmm!
Bye for now!!
