Welcome to the middle of the week! YAY! I celebrated with another microwaved bowl of oats. LOL!
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup Quaker oats
-drizzle of honey
-some chopped peanuts
The raspberry/honey combo worked out real well here. I find frozen raspberries to be a little tart sometimes so the honey brought back a little of the sweetness.
Last night I treated myself to a small snack while watching The Biggest Loser.
This would be a Dr. Kracker 3 grain cracker with some black cherry/strawberry/blood orange jam and Allegro brie on top. Amazing combination! Did you miss my review of Allegro cheese? Never fear, just click right here.
Wanna see my snacks for the day? Here ya go!
I didn’t feel like a major sweat sesh today, but I wasn’t feeling lazy either so I decided to walk on the treadmill at 4.2mph with a 5% incline. Once all was said and done it totally felt like the right move!

I made the fam pasta with ham, peas and a cheese sauce for supper tonight. The sauce was comprised of a 1/4 cup of butter, 3 tsp of flour, about 1.5 cups of 2% milk and 2 cups grated Allegro cheese. Melt butter over low heat, whisk in flour until smooth, add milk in increments, stirring thoroughly. At this point I added salt, pepper and garlic powder. Once mixture has thickened, add grated cheese and stir until combined. I added the chopped ham to the sauce and the frozen peas to the pasta water just before draining it. Here’s DS’s plate:
This meal was a big hit! Oh, by the way…those peas didn’t land on his plate that way. He decided he “wasn’t in the mood” for them and was half way through removing them from his meal! :) For myself I combined some ham, mushrooms, 1/4 cup of quinoa and 1/2 a cup of water to a sauce pan and cooked for 15mins. At the very end I stirred in some peas then topped it off with a little of the grated cheese.
I just love how versatile quinoa is! This meal was sp satisfying.
This is a 1/2 cup of goat milk yogurt with some jam spread in. I’m just now sipping on a tea and settling in to watch Criminal Minds. Time to disconnect!
Bye for now!!
