This morning was strange getting a call from B’s Dad saying he was on his way over with donuts to see the girls at 7 am!  Oops, my bad.  I didn’t realize it was 8:00 already.  Oh the joy of a lost hour of sleep, but the sunshine this evening made up for it.

I’m gonna enjoy this summer I think.

I had oatmeal this morning.  I don’t usually eat oatmeal that often for breakfast and I don’t understand why not.  Sunday’s call for a little variety though.

1/3 cup oats

water (eye-balled it)

2 egg whites

1 T Krema Natural Peanut Butter

handful of raisins

This was my first time to incorporate egg whites in with the oatmeal, and I really enjoyed this bowl.  I am defiantly going to try some savory oats soon, maybe with some spinach.

I also had a cup of Tazo Black Tea.

Lunch went un-pictured.  We ate out at a local Mexican food joint.  Just imagine chicken tostadas with 2 HUGE scoops of guacamole!

Grocery shopping ensued, and we replenished our food supply.  Hooray!  Really, I do love going grocery shopping!  Baby girl skinned both her knees…about 3 seperate times today.  Poor thing!  Nothing a few little SpongeBob band-aids couldn’t cure though.

Dinner tonight was an awesome homemade pizza!  I love homemade pizzas!  Not a big fan of the take out/delivered kind, but I’ll eat a wholesome made at home with REAL ingredients pie any day!

I made my portion piled high with sliced Canadian bacon, eggplant, red bell pepper, sliced mushroom, spinach with mozzarella sprinkled over and in between.

I also enjoyed a bowl of baby carrots and snow peas.

Well now I am trying to decide on what sweet treat I will indulge in tonight.  I will be sure to fill you in!

Good night!

Hooray for Wednesday!  Happy Hump Day people!

So B was still pretty sick last night and he didn’t have much of an appetite.  I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to feed myself something unique that only I would eat.  I don’t like making special meals just for myself at dinner.  The kids have to eat what we cook, so I don’t break my own rule!  Last night was the exception though.  While the girls enjoyed pancakes and eggs for dinner…their request and who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?!

I made an eggplant parmesan inspired by running, eating, & living in the real world’s dish, and a baked egg casserole courtesy Low…and behold’s recipe

Go me!  I don’t cook, so this was an accomplishment!

My eggplant parmesean was made up of:

2 slices eggplant

5 slices Oscar Meyer smoked turkey


I layered it with sliced roma tomato and reduced fat colby crumbled on top. 

I didn’t have marinara sauce so I used some squeezy pizza sauce we had, and it worked!!

I topped it off with the slice of eggplant and baked in the oven at 415 degrees for 15 minutes while I gave the girls the quickest bath of all time.

I also had made the baked egg dish.

2 egg whites and 1 egg whisked in with 1/3 cup of milk (because I did not have cottage cheese)

1/2 a garlic & herb LC cheese wedge

sautéed mushrooms and red bell peppers were added

bake in the oven at 375 for 15 minutes

Don’t let that little slice fool you because I ate the whole thing!

So needless to say dinner was amazing at my little table for one last night.  I finished the night off with a vanilla Chobani mixed with a dark chocolate chip flax cookie and some raisins.

This morning I woke up feeling like after all the egg I ate last night I needed some oatmeal.

I whipped up a quick batch of 1/3 cups oats, 2/3 cup water, cinnamon, and 1/2 a banana.  I also added a little PB too.

Off to enjoy the rest of this rainy stormy day.  Oh yeah the sunshine has left us again folks.  Oh well!  I do like the rain too.  Patience, the sun will soon be out in full force before I know it!

I just need to keep my positive energy flowing and make sure this headache I have doesn’t turn into a full blown sick-ache.  That’s how B started getting sick was with a headache.  Ugh!
