Ok, so right now I should not be blogging, but I have been neglecting this little page for a few days now so I am feeling a little guilty. 

I have been getting ready to leave for OKC tomorrow for Big girl’s Tae Kwan Do tournament!  Is she excited…?  Kind of.  She enjoys her classes and has fun, but gearing up for these tournaments are stressful and a lot of practice, so I think she’ll be happy when it’s over.   Baby girl is going to stay with B’s mom over the weekend while we are gone.  *snif*  I’ll miss her! 

But I have soooo much to do!  We have to go to the store for car snacks for the 3 hour drive, I need allergy meds!  OMG!  I need some Claritin Clear or something.  I already have eyesight issues and this crap in the air is making it intolerable!  Every 3 seconds it seems I am digging in my eyeballs (good visual huh?) trying to rinse the film off my contacts.  I know, don’t lecture me on why I just don’t wear my glasses.  I do…at home.

I want to say a big THANK YOU to Low…and behold!’s Kacy for hooking me up with some fantastic info on some local eats while we are in Oklahoma this weekend!  I can’t wait to try her recommendations!

I have been trying to use up the veggies in my fridge since we wont be home this weekend to eat them.  My lunches and dinners have all looked like this:

Huge salad!  Spinach, carrots, avocado, mushrooms, cucumber, tomato.

This hurried picture was my lunch yesterday.  My meal contained steamed broccoli and brussels.  Mustard to dip them in.  Carrots, and avocado.

Dinner one night this weeke was veggie pasta, and spicy turkey italian sausage otherwise known as Wacky Pasta around our house.  I topped it off with a fine load of veggies.  Should veggies and load be in the same sentence?  Let me ponder that one.

Pizza last night.  But I ENHANCED mine with a big bowl of spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots.

My breakfasts also were very fruity seeing as how I needed to eat up the fruit that would be left to spoil over the weekend.

The theme here?  Hodgson Mill’s Multi Grain Hot Cereal with Flaxseed.  I also used cinnamon, almond butter, and of course fruit!

Let me leave you with something that makes my day just that much better every time I use it.

HELLO KITTY plastic lunch box!  Toda it faithfully held Fage 0% and some cereal for crunching.

Yay!  I makes me smile every time!

Oh!  I was one of the lucky winners in What Kate Ate’s Sunshine Burger giveaway!  Can’t wait to get this coupon and check it out!  Thanks!

Hello fellow bloggies!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! 

I woke up yesterday craving another bowl of the pumpkin oatmeal I had on Friday!  Also the fact that if I don’t eat that can of pumpkin, I’ll have to throw it out, and well that’s just not right.

This time though I used Hodgen Mills Multi Grain Hot Cereal with Flaxseed and Soy.

1/3 cup hot cereal


2 spoons pumpkin



It was a creamier consistancy than the oatmeal, but still exactly what I wanted. 

Yesterday was the first day of spring, and it decided to drop from the 70 degree weather we were enjoying in the 30’s!  The first day of Spring also brought a mild snow storm into town.  I live in Ft. Worth Texas people!!!  This just isn’t right I tell you! 

A couple of hours later, I was feeling snacky so I chowed down on a bowl of low-fat cottage cheese and sliced apples.

The girls are feeling better, and so Saturday B and I decided to get out of the house for a little bit.  We went on a movie date together!!  We went and saw Avatar!  I feel like we were like the last people on Earth to have NOT seen the movie yet!  It was nice just the two of us doing something without the kids.  Definatly needed every now and then. 

After the movie we were starving!  It’s about a 3 hour long movie and I hadn’t eaten since 10 that morning.  We used to go to this Philly steak sandwich place all the time for lunch a few years ago, but since we don’t work around the corner from it anymore we never seem to get over there.  It’s a great little mom and pop shop with GREAT food!  We decided to hit it up yesterday.  Now I used to order a Philly steak sub, no veggies, just pickles and mayo on the bun and then get a packet of mayo to add extra and possibly dip my french fries in it too,  Yeah, I know!  But I decided to skip that route (even though it is delish) and order a Greek Salad.  I realize it probably wasn’t authentic by any means since they specialize in Philly steak subs, but nonetheless it was sooo, sooo good!

I was in love!  It was heaven on a paper plate!  The salad did have a boat load of feta cheese on it, so I had to leave some of it behind out of sheer lack of green to pair it with, and the pita bread was warm and melted in your mouth!!  I will have to duplicate this at home!

We ate lunch kind of late in the day so dinner was just a pice of salmon for me and a side salad at home.  I bought these wild caught salmon fillets in a bulk bag at the grocery store.  I broiled it for about 10 minutes at 500 degrees in the oven after seasoning with a little bit of lemon juice and Cajun spices. 

It was so flaky, it fell apart as I was putting it on my plate, so sorry about the beat up looking pice of fish, and the blurry picture.

After dinner was a yogurt mess!

Yoplait Greek Plain

Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oats

Voortman’s Omega 3 Dark Chocolate Chip Flaxseed cookie crumbled in


spoonful of Better N’ Peanut Butter

The other night B had surprised me with a new flavor of yogurt!  He knows how much I love it, and he is the most thoughtful-est person ever!

Genesis Today Gogi Strawberry and Pomegranate Resveratrol.  I tried the Gogi Strawberry first.

It packs pretty good stats: non fat, 12 g of protein, sugar is a little high at 19g, but it’s flavored.  It also boasts a TON of vitamins and minerals, and of course probiotics.

I added a few extras like chocolate chips, raisins, and a handful of cereal for crunch and it looked like there was real fruit on the bottom, it was creamy, but the taste was very, strange.

All the vitamins it had in was in my opinion a little overwhelming as far as taste.  It was like eating a hundred vitamins crushed up with a little bit of gogi flavoring.  It was peculiar.  Needless to say, I couldn’t finish it!!  (*Gasp!)  I just couldn’t do it!  Oh well, I will try the other flavor and see how that one is, but I do not have high hopes.  I will just stick to my plain Greek flavors I enjoy so much!

Well I have got to get cleaning on this house of ours!  I have laundry coming out of every corner and a floor that is in of a scrubbing. 

Have a great Sunday everyone!!
