The Low Down On My Sunday

So today can be summed up pretty easily. Three different activities with some food in between. 100_8239

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup flax seed porridge
  • cinnamon
  • trail mix
  • cappuccino agave


After breakfast we drove over to Costco to stock up on some much needed necessities. They didn’t have much in the way of new interesting stuff, but I did come home with some spinach & feta sausages. By the time we got back we barely had time for lunch before we had to run back out for a hockey game downtown. I finished up my mango salad and some of DS’s noodles with peanut sauce: 100_8241 100_8240

Have I mentioned before how much I love Thai food? :D

We arrived home from the game at 4:30 and I needed to make a meal that wouldn’t take too long. I borrowed an idea that I saw on Nigella Bites yesterday for a super fast soup. I’m gonna call this “10 Minute Chicken & Rice Soup

You simply take one jar of marinara sauce and add it to a pot. This is the one I used today:


Then fill the jar with water and add to the pot…twice. Bring this to a boil then add 2/3 cup WW Minute rice and sliced, pre cooked chicken breast. Bring back to a boil and cook until rice is tender, about 5 minutes. I topped mine with freshly grated Parmesan and a toasted English muffin of the side: 100_8246

Here’s my attempt at a close up with the flash: 100_8247

HA! My dessert was one of my hubby’s PB & chocolate chip cookies. 100_8242 After eating we went to visit my parents. It’s been more than a few weeks since we’ve been due to hockey commitments and the kids were glad to have gone. I changed into my pj’s as soon as we got home and peeled myself an orange. 100_8249

I watched an episode of Criminal Minds before I decided to post this. And shortly I’ll be going to bed. Worky worky tomorrow, you know! I need my beauty sleep… LOL! Hope you’ve all enjoyed a super weekend!
