I started the day out with some English muffin French toast: This is 2 English muffins soaked in USAB, egg whites, vanilla, chia flour and cinnamon. I put some honey pecan butter, agave and fresh bloobs on top for some pizzazz! The kids hung out with the neighbour for a few hours while my hubby and I went to St. Jacob’s market. It was a gorgeous day and the market was jam packed. I got some peaches, nectarines, bell peppers, cherries, eggs, raw honey and granola:
We stopped at Williams Pub on the way home for some lunch. I went with a grilled veggie and goat cheese panini with a side of Greek salad.
I had a choice between chips, a cookie or an apple with my combo an seeing as I went healthy with an apple at Panera, I got a pecan chocolate chip cookie this time!
I know it looks like I took a bite, but I actually broke a piece off because they served it on the same plate as my lunch and some salad dressing got on it. Ewww! Yes, I’m picky that way! HA
I can’t really remember what I did all afternoon. Probably reading! My hubby bought some really nice steaks at the market so for dinner I made a huge salad and topped it off with some sliced steak:
I don’t normally eat beef as I’ve never, ever been a fan but I do appreciate a nice steak every now and again. And this was a GOOD steak!! I’m sure I snacked after dinner, but there’s no pictures so I can’t remember what it was! Hehe! I do remember that we went to DS’s soccer game. I can’t believe they only have 3 left. Time fly’s, my friends!
This was a FUN day because we went to Canada’s Wonderland! I love this place and have ever since I was a kid. Rides, games, shows, water park; this place has it ALL! I made a filling bowl of oats before we left:
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup Quaker oats
- apple honey
Whenever we go to a big “park” where you can’t really bring food in unless you sneak it we time it so that we arrive around lunch so that we can eat a picnic style lunch in the parking lot. I had a simple mortadella, mozzarella cheese sandwich: And we were off! The “Mountain”. We watched some dudes dive off this thing! DD (in)patiently waiting for us to get a move on! :) She’s a ride freak, this girl! We did a few roller coasters: She went on a few spinning things that make me positively nauseous to even watch! She also went on a contraption called “The Drop Zone”. Check out how high this baby goes!
You can just barely see the cars at the top. She made the funniest face by the time they reached the bottom (which is a free fall).
It’s kinda tough to see, but she’s on the far left. We cracked up when we saw her! She told us she was never going on it again because it scared the crap out of her. She shook for a good 10 minutes afterwards, but couldn’t stop laughing. What a nut bar!! We enjoyed soft serve cones again… Then the kids enjoyed some time at the water park! They’ve got some pretty decent water slides and a huge wave pool. A kids dream come true!! We finally left about 6pm and some caffeine was desperately needed! When I was a teenager we’d spend a good 12hrs at the park hitting every ride and attraction available. Now, 3 roller coasters, one “wet” ride and the water park are enough to turn me into a zombie! LOL Dinner was fast and easy….egg whites scrambled with a LC cheese wedge, a toasted Ezekiel muffin and some fruit: I’m sure I ate a bowl of homemade pineapple coconut froyo, but I musta forgot a photo. I blame it on exhaustion! I spent the evening chatting with my neighbours and watching some Criminal Minds. Perfectly relaxing!
I slept until almost 9am!!! WOW…I must of really been tired! It’s been overcast all day with heavy air and for the first time since I’ve been on vacay, this asthma business of mine is acting up. Irritating to say the least, but it kinda forces me to sit back and catch up on everything I’ve let slide the past few days. Blog reading included! Damn, you guys have been up to some GREAT stuff!
Breakfast was a 1/2 cup of granola from the market with blueberries and USAB:
Aside from doing some laundry I pretty much camped out with the computer all morning. Lunch was light today. I toasted an English muffin and topped it with mortadella, LC cheese, lettuce and mango mustard. There were also some sweet cherries on the side:
I also downed half a peach because it was starting to go bad…
We ran some errands in the afternoon for supplies to get us started on our deck tomorrow. We got home just in time to unload and get the sheets off the clothesline before it started to pour buckets!
Dinner was also simple and a lot more “healthy” than what we’ve been eating all week. Turkey sausage, corn on the cob and green beans!
My parents will be here shortly for a visit and them I’m sure more TV will be watched. I have a feeling that I’ll be good and fresh for deck building activities tomorrow!! :)
Bye for now!!
