I’m back with my meals, etc from today 🙂
First- let me tell you about my drive into work today- there was a HUGE traffic jam on the 408 (highway I take to work).
There was a 3 car pile up – that I saw later on-one of the cars was completely SMASHED in- luckily I think everyone was ok- just not their vehicles.
For breakfast I made my ‘apple pie filling’- it’s a perfect meal to eat when I get to work. I don’t have to eat in my car anymore.
-1 Jazz apple
-about 2 tbsp. old fashioned oats
-about 2 tbsp. chocolate protein powder
-about 1 tsp. cinnamon
-1 packet splenda
For lunch I had the usual- a greek yogurt with blue berries & strawberries mixed in…along with a bit of Raisin Bran & Fiber One. On the side- some watermelon!
For my afternoon snack (b/c I was STARVING) was a piece of this blueberry bran banana bread that I made- I found the recipe on the Fiber One website..and I was going to post it..but it wasn’t that great.
Shockingly I didn’t have any animal crackers- I think I’m over them…@ least for now.
When I got home, I was going to go for a little walk…well, on the treadmill while I caught up on my shows, but instead I decided to do something nice for Craig. After this past weekend, I really wanted to make it up to him…so I decided to make him cookies. His absolute favorite thing is Reese’s peanut butter cups- great pick huh?! 😀
So I made this recipe for him-
Marbled Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
-1 ½ cups flour
-1/2 cup cocoa powder
-1/2 tsp. Baking powder
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1/4 cup peanut butter (either crunchy or soft)
-1 tsp. Vanilla
-3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
-3/4 cup peanut butter
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
9. Bake about 14- 15 minutes.
For Craig’s welcome home gift I made him these & I also wrote him a long note explaining to him the new promises that I have made to myself & to him- and that I will NO longer let outside things influence me & affect our relationship. Because that is the last thing that I want. I realize it might be a step by step process, but I’m dedicated to it.
I hope he likes them 🙂
For dinner I had the little amount of barley left over. Mr. Craig left a tiny bit in the container- does your significant other or roommate leave little amounts of food in containers?? He usually polishes stuff off…but I guess he was pretty stuffed.
And a strawberry spinach salad with some tomatos, a bit of mozzarella (2%) & some croutons. The dressing I used was Fat Free Raspberry Pecan.
YUM! Now I’m just waiting for my hunny bunny to get home- cleaning up a bit..and then watching Losing It With Jillian.
Now I leave you with some pictures of the ‘baby’ ducks- they are NO longer babies anymore. Now when they see me walk out onto the porch, they come right up to the screen door- cute right????! I love those little ducks 😀
