Lots of Yummm!

Productive Saturday mornings really make me smile. 😀 But first, before I get to this morning, let’s back track a little bit to last night. A have evening + morning of yummy eats!

Being the first Friday after my first full week of teaching, I guess you could say that I was more than exhausted. The thought of doing anything besides chillin’ on my couch was definitely out of the question. To be honest, I really wasn’t in the mood to cook anything for dinner either, but knowing that we’ll probably be going out to dinner tonight, I figured it would be in our best interest to eat in.

So what do you make on a Friday night when you want dinner done in less than 20 minutes?



Instead of fighting with the rolling out of a pizza dough, we took the easy route with some Boboli Whole Wheat thin crust mini pizzas. And because we can never decide which kinds we want, we make enough for a small army. :)

Before heading into the oven…


Broccoli, peppers, onions, & tomatoes


Barbecue chicken


Fresh out of the oven! Mmmmm. 😛




I enjoyed a slice of each for dinner. Usually when we make pizza, we’ll usually have some side salads to go with them, but we were unfortunately fresh out of lettuce. Oh well…too much effort anyways. 😉




It’s tough to pick a favorite – they were ALL delicious!


Jay had to be up early for work, so I decided to follow suit and make my way to the gym for an early workout. Before leaving, I snacked on a honey graham Clif Z Bar. Side note: I really want to try the “Spooky S’Mores” flavor, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere?!?!


At the gym, I completed 45 minutes on the elliptical, covering 6.5 miles, followed by 10 minutes on the Stair Master. I really despise that Stair Master…yet, I keep coming back to it. 😉 Nonetheless, it was a GREAT workout.

After the gym, I made a quick stop down to the Farmers Market. It was an absolutely beautiful morning for it!


While sipping on a delicious Pumpkin Pie flavored coffee from my fave Flavour Cafe,


I browsed the market, picking up some carrots, zucchini, basil, tomatoes, apple cider, Plain Jane Creamy PB, and some fresh bread…


…which I immediately broke into for breakfast as soon as I got home. Spread with some White Chocolate Wonderful PB…amaaaaaazing. 😀

I also enjoyed a honey flavored Chobani, topped with a fresh diced pear, a sprinkling of cinnamon & nutmeg, and the last of my Bear Naked Fit granola.



The addition of cinnamon & nutmeg really makes such a difference. If you haven’t tried it, I’d definitely recommend it.




Time to go take advantage of this beautiful Saturday! Hope you’re all having a great morning. :)

Question for the Day:

Do you usually sleep in on weekends, or do you try to keep a regular schedule from the workweek?

    I totally understand being tired. I am a teacher too! We just completed our first 6weeks on Friday. I wish we started later like you. Anyways, on Sat. I usually don’t sleep in too much because that’s my long run. Good luck w/your class. Hope they are sweeties and smarties.

    let me know if you can’t find the smores bar…it’s just smores at my whole foods, not the spooky s’mores. i’m sure it’s just a seasonal change in the label/name. i’ll send you some if you need me to! :)

  7. says

    what’s on your bbq pizza? I love the honey graham z bars they are soo soo good.

    I usually try to get up by 8 a.m. on the weekends unless I am trying to sleep sleep I won’t let myself out of bed until 9
