Evening all! I have been rocking the blogging this weekend. I haven’t been very consistent lately but I feel like I’m in the groove right now so everyone should expect lots of posts from me in the future :)
As per my blog title today was a wonderful, lazy day. Things are going to be very busy over the next few weeks so Matt and I took advantage and had a day with no plans.
When I got up this morning it was rainy and gross so I decided to to use up the last of my pb that I’ve been saving and make Oats in a Jar.
I put my perfect oatmeal in the last of the pj jar.
Then topped it was 1/2 a banana.
And 1 tbsp of chocolate chips.
Nom! I love oatmeal on chilly, rainy mornings.
After breakfast I spend the rest of the morning watching Matt play some Mario (I needed a break from yesterday’s stress) and did some blog reading. What a great way to spend the morning.
Lunch was an apple quesadilla. I had saw them on Jenny’s blog a few weeks ago and they looked yummy.
I started with one whole wheat tortilla and half and apple sliced.
I grated some mozza and added it to the top.
Then added the other tortilla and cooked for about 5-10 mins. Served them with a handful of organic baby tomatoes.
I actually only at about 1/2 of the Quesadilla. It was a little too greasy for me. Mozza is very soft and a little greasy. I think it would have been better with cheddar. I’ll have to try them again sometime.
After lunch Matt decided to watch the Matrix (one of my least favourite movies) so I headed upstairs to read Sookie and maybe take a nice afternoon nap. I’m currently on the fifth (??) book.
I’m loving these books. Thanks Jaime :)
Mid-afternoon I was feeling hungry so I grabbed some roasted garlic hummus.
And paired them with some carrots and Stacy’s Pita Chips.
Supper wasn’t the healthiest but definitely yummy.
Honey Garlic Ribs
This is my dad’s recipe and now Matt makes it for me ever once in a while. Since we had some ribs on hand we decided tonight would be a great night to have some.
We start with some ribs.
Honey and Honey Garlic Sauce.
Matt boils the ribs for a 15 mins in a pot then cooks them in the Wok with the sauce and honey.
This might be the messiest dinner ever for your stove top - haha :P
Since the ribs are a little on the heavy and sugary side we decided to pair them with a big salad.
In the salad spinner: organic spinach, carrots, cucumber, baby tomatoes, red, yellow and green peppers.
Served on a plate with some lemon juice and a tbsp of dried cranberries.
Of course along with the ribs.
This is one of my most favourite meals! I don’t get it very often but I love it. If anyone is interested in the full recipe please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to provide it for you.
watching sitting next to the husband while he is watching the final Matrix movie. I have lots going on tomorrow including starting Gina’s new four week program Summer Shape Up. She actually started it last week so I’m a week late but still excited to start.
Have a good night everyone.
