Wahooo!! Spring has officially sprung! Happy spring to you all today! Smile

Last Night’s Dinner

On my way home from work last night, I got a call from the hubster asking how much longer it was going to be until I got back. This is rare for him to ask, so I told him about ten minutes and then asked why. His response?

“Because dinner is ready and waiting in the oven!” My response?

“I’ll be there in five!”

Don’t worry I didn’t speed too much.

For those whole five minutes, I assumed that I’d be coming home to a plate full of pierogies, since that’s what we had talked about earlier, so imagine my surprise when I walked in to THIS beauty…

Homemade pizza with grilled chicken, peppers, and onions. Gimme, gimme, gimme!

I loved not only how big and fluffy this batch of crust was, but how nice and garlicky it was, too. We do love us some garlic…it’s a good thing it’s mutual.

I enjoyed two slices of pizza immediately after changing into my cozies, plopping on the couch, and watching some How I Met Your Mother.

The show was good…the pizza was great.

Breakfast

I was really having a bit of a predicament this morning. We have a lot of veggies right now, some even chopped up, so I was feeling compelled to make an omelet. But in the end, memories of yesterday’s oats won the victory.

Today’s batch was super similar to yesterday, with the only swap being 1/4 cup egg whites for the mashed banana. It made it slightly less sweet but gave it more of that French toast flavor that I love.

Toppings for today included half of a chopped apple, Love Grown Foods granola, and a batch honey cinnamon peanut butter made with my PB2.

That’s definitely the best offer I’ve seen so far!

Oh, and just in case you didn’t believe me, there were some oats underneath all those toppings. Winking smile

Now, it’s about time for me to tackle today’s workout, which I’m sure would be a whole heck of a lot easier if my legs weren’t feeling like the lead rods that they are right now. Oh boy!

Question for the Morning:

What are some of your favorite things about spring?

I love the warmer weather (obviously), pretty flowers, the Farmer’s Market going back outdoors, the birds chirping in the morning, Tulip Fest, the start of softball season, and all of my favorite soft serve ice cream places re-opening. Winking smile

      Ooooo, good call on the iced coffee!
      I’d do the same thing with the roof of my car…if I could 😉

    The bright nights definitely! The clocks don’t change until this weekend coming over here but we’re already getting a stretch (in Ireland! :))
    That pizza looks so good, I don’t think I could have stopped at two slices though! Garlic all the way!

    Yum, homemade pizza is the best!! I’m so excited spring is here (although the winter wasn’t bad at all). I’m looking forward to the spring-like weather that isn’t too hot, fresh cut flowers, and baseball season!

  3. says

    Aww what a lucky lady! That pizza looks like something worth speeding home for :)

    In Florida, spring weather is pretty much like every season’s weather, so no fun seasonal changes for me, but I do love the later/lighter nights of daylight savings time!

    that first photo of the tulips is beautiful! i love tulips. we just planted some last fall for the first time, and they’re starting to poke out of the ground! i can’t wait for them to bloom. :) i also love that everything is starting to turn green and look alive again. the warmer weather is definitely a plus too!

  7. says

    The pizza looks yummy! Peppers and onions are my favorite kind of pizza, throw on some crushed pepers flakes and I am in heaven!!! I love How I Met Your Mother, but I really love Two Broke Girls. Last night was hilarious! I love the lady from Poland, I can’t rememebr her name cracks me up!!!

      YES! Stifler’s mom lol! The cook cracks us right up too. :)
      We weren’t sure of the show at first, but it has definitely grown on us.

    I love spring! It’s not overly hot and not cold, it’s the perfect temperature to be enjoying the outdoors. I love being able to eat outside on a restaurant patio with friends, drinking my morning coffee on the deck, farmers markets, and gym classes held outside. I could just go on and on about how much I love spring.

  9. Alyssa Holt says

    I love that everything is blooming and the perfect temperature! We got a lot of rain last night and you wouldn’t believe that difference that one rainfall did to the color of our lawn — it’s beautiful!! :)

  10. Annie says

    I checked out those pierogies, they look yummy! I lived in Poland last year and I have been trying to recreate them but alas, to no avail! Do you know what sort of a recipe Jay uses? Or is it a well kept secret? 😀 x

    • Courtney says

      I don’t think he really uses a recipe – we usually just saute them up a bit and add whatever we have on hand…veggies, chicken, etc. They’re super easy and great when you’re pressed for time!

  11. Cassandra Bishop says

    Pierogies are delicious! I would LOVE to come home to those sometime. That pizza looked pretty amazing though. Either would be nice :)

  12. Ashley says

    My roommate can not sleep and would love a different pillow to try out!! figured I would try to get her one before she invested in another high-tech one!!

  13. Linda says

    I could kick myself – it was near the end of the cut off of the give away and I didn’t get back to it on time! GAH!
