Sometimes when life is going by so quickly I just feel like doing this all day long:
Which is exactly what I did yesterday (Sunday) pretty much all day long! It was so nice. Other than church and going to lunch, I read like 150 pages from my book and then took a nice 2 hour nap. Bliss!
But needless to say I ran out of time to catch up on blogging. Oh well! Here we go...
So Thursday night I went to a farewell party for my husband's unit's family readiness advisor (that's a mouthful) or "FRSA" for those of you who speak Army.
I neglected to take any photos but the food spread included chips & queso/guacamole, cinnamon pita chips with fruit salsa (AMAZING!), veggie tray, pizza, peach & balsamic salad (that I made), and lots of desserts.
I ate TONS of the cinnamon pita chips with fruit salsa, quite a bit of chips dipped in guac & queso, a few nibbles of veggies (but who wants veggies when you have all that other deliciousness?!), one piece of pizza (had to use major restraint on that one), and a chocolate chip cookie. Oh and a glass of white wine!
All in all, not the healthiest night but also not as bad as I could have been (and wanted to be). :)
Friday night I was exhausted after an extremely crazy workday so we kept it low key.
Hubs heated up a frozen Kashi margarita pizza for dinner which he spruced up with extra toppings (extra cheese, pepperoni, jalepenos, etc.) a la Shelby at Eat, Drink, Run....
It was our first time buying the Kashi frozen pizza and he said it was just okay. The size was way smaller than it appeared in the box and the crust was extremely thin. I tried a couple bites and agreed with him on it just being "meh". I doubt we'll be dying to purchase any more Kashi frozen pizzas in the near future.
For my dinner I first enjoyed some liquid relaxation to help wind down from my crazy day...
And then made myself a delicious salad with hummus and pita chips on the side...
The salad consisted of:
- Spring Mix bagged salad
- Romain bagged salad
- Avocado chunks
- Carrot chunks
- Newman's Own Light Balsamic dressing (see below)
As far as the hummus, I went with the only pre-packaged hummus that I will buy these days....
