Well good morning! How’s everyone doing on this fine Wednesday morning? Good? Super. Then let’s move one – I’ve got lots to share!
Last night, Jay and I had our friends Joe & Kate over. It had been FAR too long, so it was really great to spend the evening with them. For dinner, we had a pretty decent spread…
Kate brought a salad (still workin’ on those veggies)
I made Healthy Baked Chicken Parm, which turned out great. I only had 3 chicken breasts on hand, so I pounded them out and cut each in half. It ended up being more than enough, since everyone only had one half.
To accompany our chicken, I also cooked up some fettuccine, spaghetti squash, my homemade sauce & meatballs, and some “healthier” garlic bread.
I say healthier because rather than buy the store-bought one that’s already loaded with butter, I bought a fresh loaf, and Jay and I took care of the toppings on our own. A little olive oil, garlic, spray butter, seasoning, and parmesan cheese, and we were good to go. Delicious AND a whole lot better than the butter-laden one!
Since we’re super classy, we broke out the TV trays and ate dinner in the living room by the Christmas tree.
I loaded up on some salad, chicken, spaghetti squash, a meatball, and some garlic bread.
I didn’t realize it was almost 8:00pm by the time we ate, so I was a little more than starving. I devoured my whole plate, no problem-o.
For dessert, I put out a plate of the last of our Christmas cookies and fudge. I ended up snagging a few goodies from it – I just couldn’t help it. I need these things GONE!
Definitely a great evening, and a great dinner with great friends.
I was thinking ahead last night and already knew that I wanted some voluminous oats for today. So I prepped a bit then, and finished ‘em up this morning.
Today’s batch was awesome. I prepared my usual oats base (1/3 cup Coach’s Oats, almond milk, water, 1/2 mashed banana, chia seeds, cinnamon) along with some fresh blueberries mixed throughout and on top. A little Love Grown Foods granola sealed the deal.
Today’s coffee was surprisingly fantastic. I say surprisingly because it was Folgers brand. We haven’t bought this brand in years because we thought it was disgusting but ended up acquiring a can of their French Roast and figured we should use it up.
I don’t know…we must have been making it wrong before because this stuff is great – and cheaper. I’ll take it!
Alrighty folks, I’ve got my long day of work ahead of me today and I still have a mess of a head of hair to attempt to do something with, so I gotta scoot!
