The weekend isn’t really over, is it? I feel like it never happened it flew by so fast. As always.
It was a wonderful weekend. I didn’t do much on the side of cooking and didn’t develop any new exciting recipes over the weekend, but I surely enjoyed relaxing at home and with friends.
Breakfast was a cup of coffee with stevia, and a piece of almond bread toast with PB2 and cinnamon.
The fam bam and I headed out for a 3.35 mile run around the neighborhood. The weather was PERFECT. It is finally starting to cool down around here and the temperature was high 60’s with a light sprinkle which felt great.
We switched up our grocery shopping day to Saturday instead of Sunday since we both had fun plans for Sunday and wouldn’t be able to go on our usual day.
When we were at Costco we stumbled upon a super large pet bed for Moose for only $20! Seriously you don’t find that price anywhere on pet beds. His other bed had seen better days and he was definitely ready for a new one; a big boy bed.
I think he likes it. Actually what’s funny is that we had to force him onto the bed for this photo. I think he likes it?
Lunch was very random. I had grabbed a sample or two at Costco, and when I got home, I wasn’t sure what I was hungry for so I made it a small snack type of lunch.
I started with cooked carrots with cinnamon.
Then oven roasted turkey breast with cheese.
And then I think I moved on to a couple of bites of peanut butter and then called it a day, but I’m not for sure.
In the afternoon, I relaxed and laid out on the deck. It was wonderful and much needed. I have been exhausted.
Dinner was Roasted Butternut Squash Soup that I made a while ago and stored in the freezer. I love having homemade soups in the freezer for days like Saturday night, where I had no inclination to cook or make anything. All we had to do was grab a couple of bags of soup from the freezer, pop them in a bowl in the microwave, and top them with some chives.
Easy and very tasty once again.
On Sunday I headed to Mankato to meet up with a couple of my girlfriends from college. Being that we were all dietetics majors, there is always food involved at our get-togethers.
I brought apples, mango, cherries and yogurt dip, Terra sweets and carrots chips (which are amazing btw), and to the left unpictured is a giant bag of trail mix which I dominated.
We also had pretzel chips and hummus, carrots, and lettuce wraps. Pretty healthy, right?!
I loved loved catching up with the girls. They both have beautiful little baby girls so I got lots of quality baby time. I love baby time, and girl time, so it was a great Sunday.
When I got home, Dana, Moose, and I went for a leisurely walk around the neighborhood, then I got ready for the week ahead.
So, I was thinking…since I tend to have a hard time dealing with Mondays, with going back into work week and all, how about I try to throw you all a joke on Mondays when I remember? I know I am not the only one out there who struggles with this day, so we can all benefit from it. I’m not guaranteeing any quality jokes, but if they can at least make you smile, or give you the slightest chuckle, I will feel like I’ve done my job.
Q: How do you turn a soup into gold?
A: Add twenty four carrots!
Ba-da-boom-ching. Happy Monday friends.
Got any good ones? Please share and make us all smile.
