Oooo boy, I’m runnin’ a little late this morning! :-0
Breakfast had to be something QUICK, so I decided on one of my fave cereal combos: Quaker Oatmeal Squares & Kashi Vive!
Mixed with some almond milk (LOVING this stuff!) and half of a sliced banana (I’ll have the other half for a mid-morning snack I’m sure). Paired with my mug-o-joe, and I’m ready to go!
Today’s lunch was made last night while getting things prepped for dinner. I love being able to take care of two meals at once, don’t you?
Saucy, Cheesy Penne ‘n Veggies!
I started out with a little leftover pasta that was cooked last night. Then I topped that with some Newman’s Own Marinara sauce & Italian diced tomatoes. The next layer is some steamed spinach & zucchini that I cooked in the micro for about 1 minute.
On top of the veggies, I added a little ricotta cheese & a finishing touch of pesto! Looks kinda like a flower, right?
Mmmm! I can’t wait to dig into this stuff today!
I also packed some fresh cantaloupe.
So last Friday while out at Girls Night, I started telling the girls about a website that I like to check out every once in a while, which they had no idea about. As per their request, they said that this was information that I needed to share with the “blow world”, soooo I will do just that!
Restaurant.com has some AMAZING deals on local restaurants in your area! You can search by zip code, state, or city, and check out all the participating restaurants. If you sign up on their e-mail list, they will alert you of when they are having their awesome sales. And when I saw awesome, I mean AWESOME – they’ve had weeks where gift certificates are up to 80% OFF!
This week, they’re having a 70% Off Sale – that means you can get a $25.00 gift certificate for $3.00!! Just enter promo code “MOM” at checkout and hit “Apply”.
The one thing that you have to be careful of is to check the stipulations of the various restaurants. For example, some are not valid on weekends, or require a minimum purchase, etc. But even still, if you enjoy eating out, trying new places, and getting a BARGAIN, then you should definitely check out this site!
Stay tuned this afternoon for the next installment of my “Sprucing Up Your Summer Wardrobe”!
