Tony made me one of his signature breakfasts on Saturday – breakfast burritos! So good, but one was plenty, so the dog got to share with me.
Saturday after Tony and I got back from the grocery store, I was a cleaning fool. I did two loads of laundry, deep cleaned the bathroom and deep cleaned my kitchen. I was non-stop for about two hours, but I love the feeling when you get done cleaning!
I had no energy or desire to go to the gym, so I didn’t. I kept feeling guilty though, because I challenged myself to Play 60 for the month of February, and there is was February 2 and I wasn’t keeping up with my promise.
Dinner Saturday was delicious – Nicole’s chicken marsala pasta. My sauce never thickened up, but it was still tasty.
We’ve been feeding the squirrels on our deck. First I tried Cherrios, they didn’t like that too much. I started tossing them sliced almonds, they love those, but no way I am going to give expensive almonds to a squirrel! I had a batch of granola though that I wasn’t particularly happy with, so I started throwing that out to them. Guess what they loved? Dried bananas!
Tony has called this one Lyle – although truth be told we could have five different squirrels come to the window, but they are all Lyle to us. We’d look out the window and say “Lyle, you’ve got snow on your face!” Yep, we live large here.
Last week I had the opportunity to get a new product from Vitalicious. I knew this company from the Vita Muffin Tops that are super popular in the WW world before they started costing more points – I think each one was only 1 or 2 points?
Anyway, they sent me their new product:
What was interesting was that you could bake these in the oven, toaster oven or microwave. You guys know what a pizza snob I am, so I decided to bake it and follow the directions for a crispy crust – bake at 425 for 10 minutes.
At first glance, I though “it looks like it needs more sauce.” And it had mushrooms on it, which I normally don’t care for, but I left them on. I baked it for exactly 10 minutes.
The crust was crispy, which I loved but I thought it was lacking in flavor. Everything kind of tasted the same. That being said – for a 190 calorie pizza it’s good – I would buy this again but use it as a base and add some more sauce, veggies and cheese.
Of course, no weekend is now complete without me making Artisan bread. My SIL and her family look forward to the bread each week which makes me happy.
Yesterday was Tony’s happiest day and saddest day of the year – It’s the Superbowl (happy!) but now he has 8 months to wait for the next season (sad).
We had chips and guacamole, cheese and crackers and I made Hooter’s buffalo shrimp.
Since all I had to eat before the big game was the 190 calorie pizza, I ate like there was no tomorrow. I put the guac next to me, and just grabbed chip after chip not even paying attention to what I was doing. Gah! What the hell happened to me this weekend? I didn’t work out yesterday either too.
Well, all I can do is dust myself off, and get back on track. I have my meals planned out, and just need to put my workout clothes together and I am all set. We got more snow over night – probably another inch or so, so I have to get my ass moving and scrape off the car.
The football game was exciting though – and I was happy for Beth and her husband Noel who are huge Raven’s fans!
Make it a great day!
