Recipe that’ll STUFF ya!

Hiya!! 🙂 Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. I keep wishing it was Memorial Day weekend again…LOVE those 4 day weeks.

For breakfast this morning I ventured out & decided to make Craig something I had been seeing a lot of- Frittatas. I kind of just did my own thing. I know what he likes, so I just went off that. In the frittata went: chopped green peppers, chopped onion, 3 pieces cooked bacon, 3 eggs & Mexican four cheese.
I just mixed everything together, sprinkled the cheese on top & some paprika.
I baked it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

mixed up & ready to bake!

baked & ready for C

I also made Courtney’s Hearty Oat Loaf recipe. I only made one change- substituted the oil for applesauce.

the recipe

applesauce works great for when recipes call for oil

when I added the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients

poured into a dish & sprinkled with cinnamon- LOVE cinnamon!


I also made 2 egg whites with spinach & mushrooms for me to go along with my bread.

My plate- egg whites + 2 small pieces bread with raspberry jelly

another angle

I also enjoyed some iced coffee with 2 splenda.

C's plate. That egg frittata got HUGE!!

I really like the bread recipe. It is really dense & very filling which is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I had asked earlier in the week for some filling breakfast ideas & this is perfect! Courtney had the right idea to put peanut butter on it- I had a small piece with PB too & YUMM!! LOVE it! Thanks Court! 🙂

After breakfast we kind of just hung around, watched some tv, feed the ducks, etc. Oh, I went to the grocery store to get what we needed for the week. But I CANNOT find quinoa at the store 😦 I’m thinking I’m supposed to look in the rice section?? Right??!  Please let me know if there is another section I should look in.

We were both SUPER full from breakfast & stayed that way. No lunch- too stuffed!

We headed to the gym around 3pm. Today I did one of my new-found favorite workouts- my version of Janetha’s Go-To lower body workout…I think this has become my ‘go-to’ lower body workout as well. It is AWESOME!! Your legs really feel it…and they feel it the next few days too 😉

When we came home from the gym around 4pm we were both still FULL! Believe it or not. YAY for filling recipes 😀
But Craig asked if I could make him a protein shake when we got home so he ‘wouldn’t over indulge at dinner.’ <–cute right?! I got him trained right 😉 jk!
Into the smoothie went protein powder, 1 banana & 4 strawberries plus about 1/2 cup- 3/4 cup milk (didn’t measure) I filled up his cup & there was about 6 oz. left, so I had a little glass of it.

my cup of smoothie goodness

Right now we are just hanging out…again. I’ll be making dinner soon- I have a NEW recipe to try- WOOP WOOP!! 🙂
