Mustard Cheese

Okay, you all know my obsession with cheese, but this one ranks right at the top of one of my favorites!  Tony actually bought it for New Years Eve, and I had forgotten it was in the fridge until I cleaned it out.

see the flecks of mustard seed?

The best part is not only does it have a great mustard taste – a little goes a long way and it melts wonderfully.

this is only 1/2 an ounce!

I sliced some of my bread from yesterday, Pam fried an egg and then put this cheese on the egg and put a top on the pan and just walked away for a few minutes:

So my Mom and I were meeting for a movie, but I wasn’t sure she’d be able to meet for lunch before since she had church, so popcorn ended up being my lunch at the movies!  We saw It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep – and while somewhat predictable, we loved it – some very funny, laugh out loud scenes!

On Saturday Tony and I went to Sports Authority – I needed to get a new sports bra and something I like to call “an undershirt that holds the jiggly stuff in.”  Since I still have 35+ pounds to go, when I run, um, let’s just say my middle is a bit jiggly!  I found a Nike dry wic tank that holds everything in – and upon getting home, I realized my new sports bra can’t go into the dryer.

So after the movie, my Mom and I headed to Dick’s – and I love when I find signs like this!

and ADDITIONAL 50% off the lowest ticketed price!

My parents-in-law had given me a Visa card for Christmas, so with part of that I bought all of these!

Guess how much all four cost??

the most expensive one was only $12.98, and all of these originally were in the $40 dollar range!

So I am all set!  Thanks Bonnie and Carl! 😀

Dinner was quick and easy – I defrosted Italian sausage and my bolognese sauce.  My base is a cup of baby spinach, one serving (10 cheese tortellini for 210 calories!) of cheese tortellini, 1/2 cup sauce and 2 ounces of Italian sausage – with 1 tsp. Parmesan cheese on top.  Oh, and sprinkled with crushed red pepper!

delicious!!

I finally watched Biggest Loser! While I was happy to see twins because I have a twin sister, I was sad to see one go already!  But he’s lost 100 pounds in two months – that’s crazy!   I haven’t really picked a contestant yet – I normally root for somebody from the beginning.  This week also marks the beginning of American Idol – but it comes on the same night as BL!  I think I’ll tape BL and then watch it the next morning before work.

Speaking of work, I have to get ready!!

Goals for the Day:

  • 80 ounces water
  • 45 minutes exercise
  • calories under 1500
  • percentage of fat under 30%

Have a great day!

  1. Ohmigosh mustard cheese sounds AMAZING!! I am a cheese freak. I love it all.

  2. I feel the same way about running. No matter how tight my sports bra is I feel like the girls are bouncing in different directions and I am going up and they are going down. It is exhausting just running for a few minutes because I am constantly fighting the opposite bouncing!!!!

  3. I love that open faced sandwich

  4. Oh god, so excited about Idol! I hate it’s on the same time as BL, but luckily they rerun BL later in the week on the Fine Living Network, so that’s how I usually make it work. Have a great day!

  12. Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now

    I’ve never heard of that cheese. I’m always a little hesitant to try cheese that has seeds, nuts, fruit, etc. Not sure why, since I do LOVE cheese. I guess I’m just a little boring 🙂

    Awesome scores! Love hitting up the sales racks!

    Mmm dinner looks good! I’ve been avoiding Italian food since my parents were here, that’s pretty much all we ate that full week, but after seeing your pic I think I might be ready to have it again!

  16. That cheese is intriguing and what great deals you found!

  17. Never heard of that kind of cheese, I bet it would be good as a grilled cheese or melted on corn beef or pastrami. Yum. Great bargains you got there. Jiggly stuff… too funny. I wonder if there is something for bingo wings…
