TGFL!!

First- REVIEW of the apple cobbler- ONE word: DELICIOUS!! I was surprised at HOW good it was. I was a bit conflicted on how I felt about the Fiber One being in it, but it was yummy! Perfect amount of sweetness & the apples were cooked just right- not too crunchy & not mushy.  And ONLY 126 calories per serving!!!!!! Yes, you read that correctly. 😀 It made four serving, so we each have another piece for tonight!

If you try it, let me know what you think!

This morning was Monday (obviously, 😉 ) but I have been looking at my Mondays differently- gotta look at them as a fresh start 😀
For breakfast I made a GREEN monster- OH YA- there back! I made it with my new protein powder, spinach, a banana, some strawberries, 1 tsp. PB2, 1 tsp. cocoa powder, some water & lots of ice.

GM to go

I was getting a bit hungry around 10:30am, so I had a Fiber One 90 Calorie bar.

chocolate peanut butter

Review of those: EH. Won’t buy them again. Just kind of blah. I’ll finish them now, because I bought a box of them…but nothing great. I would rather have a Regular Fiber One bar (not the 90 calories one) or the Special K 90 calorie bar– I really like those. I really want to try the Special K Fruit Crisps
Has anyone tried them yet??

Fruit Crisps

The fiber bar held me over until lunch time. Today for lunch I had the leftover Spinach/ strawberry salad:

Lunch to go.

And some of Courtney's Hearty Oat loaf with about 1 tsp. peanut butter on each piece.

Perfect Lunch. I liked it so much, that I decided to make another salad again for tomorrow 🙂 For my afternoon snack I had some animal crackers to hold me over until dinner.

Today was back to double workout day. I decided to do some more cardio this afternoon. I found this workout in the newest Oxygen magazine– MY FAVORITE workout magazine. I wanted to do some incline work 😉

Felt good after the workout. We headed home to take a shower & then I was gonna make dinner.
I had a new recipe to try tonight, but then something awful happened:

Spaghetti sauce ALL over. 😦

It was TERRIBLE. I was so excited about my new dinner, but then this happened 😦 So, hence my title: TGFL: Thank goodness for leftovers. I’ll make my new recipe tomorrow.
Craig requested the leftover chicken tenders- Katie’s recipe & he had some left over spaghetti too.

Craig's plate

And I had leftovers from last night! Fine by me 🙂

My plate.

Topped with salsa and this stuff:

Mac & cheese powder topping.

This stuff is AWESOME!!!! If you haven’t tried it, you should 🙂 I use it on popcorn as well. I tried to find it online, like on www.Kraft.com, but I didn’t see it. I always buy it at Publix.

Anyways, I’m off- watching the MTV awards that were on last night. We DVR-ed them. & of course we’ll be spliting the last of the apple cobbler 😉

Have a great night.

  1. So glad the crisp turned out well! I like Fiber One cereal, but I was a little unsure how it would be in dessert! We bought some of the Special K Fruit Crisps and I really liked them. They were a great balance of crispy and gooey!

  2. I love Hungry Girl stuff–I plan on making a lot more of her recipes once I get into my own apt!
