Cheesy Italian Quick Bread

We are ALL about the bread over here this week. Cheesy Italian Quick Bread, to be exact.


When one loaf goes, another one is created. And ohhh baby, was this last one a good one.

It was leftovers again for dinner last night, but we still needed a little something more to go with it. Jay requested something different from the last loaf, so I skimmed my recipes and put together two of our favorite things into this bread – cheese and Italian anything.


The bread was killerrrrr. I think I love it even more than my Hearty Oat Loaf. Seriously. You can check out the recipe down at the bottom of this post, but you have to promise me that you’re going to make it soon and tell me you love it. Winking smile

While Jay had some leftover soup, I had the last portion of Tuesday night’s Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili.


Because, you know…cheesy Italian bread is the perfect match for Mexican-flavored chili.


The chili was good, but I got full super quick and couldn’t even finish it all. So not like me. Must have been from all the bread. Winking smile


Last night I also ended up watching another Redbox movie – What To Expect When You’re Expecting. Oh man, was it FUNNY. Much more so than I would have expected.

And don’t even get me started on the baby fever that ensues…just a warning.



I was in a bit of a cereal mood this morning. It’s been a while.


Today’s bowl was filled with…


I really never thought I’d be a fan of the almond butter on cereal trend, but I’ve surprised myself. It’s soooo good.


And now, who’s ready for a recipe?? Smile

June Yoga Challenge, Week 3

Happy Fridayyyyyy! How’s everyone doin’ this morning? We’ve got some yoga talk to get to, so let’s quickly whiz through breakfast.


Today was a cereal kinda day. Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Cascadian Farms Purely O’s, blueberries, banana slices, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.


Those Quaker Oatmeal Squares man…they’re probably another food that would be up there on my “I’ve started and can’t stop” list next to yesterday’s animal crackers. They’re just so darn scrumptious.


Alright, it’s Friday, so you know what that means!

June Yoga Challenge – Week 3 Recap

Three weeks in to the June Yoga Challenge. Good lord, is June flying by or what? Unfortunately, this week didn’t go so well for me…

My Challenge: Do 3 yoga sessions for the week

Actual: 1 yoga session done (certainly not as great as last week)

I felt like my schedule has kind of been all over the place this week, and some of my “planned” times for yoga ended up getting messed up. For example, the yoga class I was really looking forward to last night. I wanted to go in the worst way, but I couldn’t let my softball team down…

I may have sweat my face off, but we did win! Smile

I’m not quite sure what little bro is doing here…

But anyways, back to the yoga. The session I did do this week was great; a 40 minute core strength video from my Yoga Bootcamp DVD. Even though I didn’t reach my goal, I’m certainly not loving yoga any less; in fact, I’m still craving it like crazy. I think I’m just going to have to chalk this week up to bad planning and bad timing. Hey, it happens, right?

Next week, I’m going to attempt to up my goal to 4 sessions. I’d really like to do another video or two from, and possibly take a class somewhere if my schedule allows. I may still try to get another session in today, but I have a feeling it’s unlikely, since I do have plans for a slightly different form of relaxation…


I bought this Living Social deal a couple of months ago and am so excited to cash it in today. I’m opting for the 45 minute Swedish massage + 15 minute reflexology. I’ve always wanted to try reflexology but I’m a little nervous I might end up kicking her since my feet are a tad on the ticklish side. Winking smile

So since this is week 3 of the June Yoga Challenge, let’s see if any of you guys did better with your challenge than I did. Go ahead and link ‘em up here (you’ll get yourself an extra entry into the giveaway for the Aurorae yoga mat) and let’s cheer each other on!
