A Lazy Sunday

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.

May 001

I put my perfect oatmeal in the last of the pj jar.

May 002

Then topped it was 1/2 a banana.

May 003

And 1 tbsp of chocolate chips.

May 004

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.

May 005

I grated some mozza and added it to the top.

May 006

Then added the other tortilla and cooked for about 5-10 mins. Served them with a handful of organic baby tomatoes.

May 008

So cheesy!

May 007

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.

May 011

I’m loving these books. Thanks Jaime :)

Mid-afternoon I was feeling hungry so I grabbed some roasted garlic hummus.

May 015

And paired them with some carrots and Stacy’s Pita Chips.

May 014

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.

May 017

Honey and Honey Garlic Sauce.

May 021

Matt boils the ribs for a 15 mins in a pot then cooks them in the Wok with the sauce and honey.

May 023

This might be the messiest dinner ever for your stove top - haha :P

May 024

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.

May 022

Served on a plate with some lemon juice and a tbsp of dried cranberries.

May 025

Of course along with the ribs.

May 028

So delicious!

May 027

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 and I’d be happy to provide it for you.

Now I’m 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.
