Cakes Galore

Happy Sunday Evening All!

It is now officially 3 weeks of school left until summer vacation. It can’t come soon enough. I’m pretty burnt out this year so I can’t wait for the summer. I still think it’s going to be a long three weeks.

This weekend has been full of babies, cake and good eats. Since it’s been a while since I’ve posted about my eats so I’ll just give my highlights.

Although this wasn’t on the weekend I’ll start with a yummy meal Matt and I made earlier in the week.

Chicken Pineapple Quesadillas from The Pioneer Woman’s website.

My ingredients list:

  • 2 grilled chicken breasts
  • grilled pineapple
  • whole wheat wraps
  • cheddar cheese
  • jalapeno pepper (for Matt)

First grill up the chicken…

Then add the second wrap and cook on each side for 3-5 mins.

Who needs that much cake? Really? Anyways I did great I kept to veggies and fruit at the party with a couple of slices of cheese. I also split 1/2 a piece of black forest cake with the hubby. Just before leaving I had a tiny slice of the Mickey cake but over all I did great!

I have more news to tell but since this was already a long post I’ll leave that for tomorrow evening.

Also, if you didn’t check out my post on My Water and Yoga Challenge check it out. I’d love any support/suggestions that you might have.

I’m again blogging while watching hockey (I’m a huge fan – can’t you tell :P) so I can’t leave without saying:

Go HAWKS GO!!!

There up 3-0 so this game seems to be going better then Friday night’s game.
