I had a great Saturday peoples!  I awoke to the sounds of Baby girl jumping into bed at 7 am saying “Hi Mommy!”  How could I ignore a the salutations of a happy, little curly headed child?  Well I did try.  I just couldn’t convince her to lay down with me long enough to go back to sleep.  Plus once I am up, I am up.  So I started my Saturday early making coffee, and making the girls raisin pancakes!  It made their morning…no photos though, I did not have any.

I wanted to eat the lonely oatmeal packet I took back with me from our Oklahoma trip last weekend.  That’s right, I smuggled oatmeal from the hotel.  I had taken it from the continental breakfast bar the hotel offered thinking I was going to eat it one night as a dessert with some peach yogurt, but it never happened.

I destroyed consumed the evidence though without too much guilt.

1 packet Quaker Regular Oatmeal

1 TBSP milled flaxseed

a sprinkle of raisins

cinnamon, and more cinnamon

tip of my spoon of Almond Butter

I started some laundry, showered, did the dishes, swept and mopped the floor which included pulling out the fridge!  Oooh!  Treasures!  With kids, crayons are like weeds and they spring up in any and every place imaginable!

We also headed to the grocery store.  Our goal this week it to make meals that we can have plenty of leftovers with.  We are trying to stretch the almighty dollar as far as it will go.  Damn!  I might need to suggest a rubber currency so that could be a little bit easier!  We picked up stuff for chicken tacos, baked apricot chicken, pasta meals with turkey Italian sausage, and homemade pizzas with La Tortilla Wraps.

When we got home I was starved for lunch.  I quickly made a turkey melt with a La Tortilla high fiber tortilla.  I threw in some mesquite smoked turkey and a slice of reduced fat colby and heated it up on the stove until the cheese had melted.  Of course I added in salsa and some Mediterranean Lentil Chips on the side.  Have anyone ever had these lentil chips before?  I picked them up at Marshall’s one day and have never looked back!  30 chips are 110 calories and only 3 grams of fat they are made from, you guessed it!  Lentils!  Great source of fiber and protein!  They are also gluten free.

Mmmm!

My snack this afternoon was a 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese and sliced strawberries.

Big girl and I went for a walk before dinner this evening.  It has been raining all day but there was a break in all the rain so we took off.  Wouldn’t you know it though as soon as we left our street it started to rain again!  She didn’t care so neither did I it was fun!  She got to splash in all the puddles and we ran some of the way home too, so it was a quick but enjoyable walk for the two of us.

Dinner was being prepared when we got home and B was making pizzas!  He had cut up broccoli and bell pepper for my pie.  Also adding in some lean sliced ham strips for protein.  Using tortillas as our pie crusts, they were excellent!  The best part it we will have enough to make this again in the next few days, so not really left overs, but repeat worthy on the same dime is a win in my book!

Baby girl took one look at my pizza and snatched a piece of broccoli at the same time I snapped my picture.

Broccoli thief!

Now she likes a lot of veggies which I love, however, if I tried to feed them to her she would probably refuse so I am content with sharing as long as she eats them!

It’s getting late and I am going to enjoy whats left of my day, so good night blog land!

Yesterday the family and I went to an Easter egg hunt put on by the city.  The weather was gorgeous and there were a TON of people!  Both girls were pumped and ready to load up their baskets with eggs strewn about. 

But with so many kids it was crazy!  When they said GO it was a mass frenzy and Big girl had her heart set on one of about 5 stuffed Easter bunnies out for grabs that she didn’t pick up any eggs!  She did not get a bunny, so when she realized all the eggs were gone in about 2.2 seconds the tears came up!  Thankfully another little girl gave her some of the eggs she collected so Big girl would have some.

We then did some grocery shopping before heading over to my Dad’s house for some more Easter fun!  I failed to take a pic, but he grilled up some of the best burgers I have had in a long time!  I love homemade burgers, they are the absolute greatest! 

For dessert we indulged in some vanilla ice cream and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! 

The girls then got busy coloring Easter eggs and then they got to partake in a “real” Easter egg hunt!  They had a great time at their Grandpa’s house!

It felt so nice to be outside in the sun!  I think I even came home a little less translucent! 

It was a very windy day!  We had such a fun afternoon! 

I started my day yesterday with some oatmeal, sugar-free strawberry preserves, flaxseed, cinnamon, and almonds.  Breakfast fuel to keep up with the Easter egg hunting fools!

And for dinner we decided to keep it simple and made homemade pizzas!  We used flat bread and sort of dressed our own.  My pizza included spinach, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and sliced Canadian bacon on the bottom.  You can’t really see it.  B and the girls both had turkey pepperoni and Canadian bacon on theirs.

Last night’s dessert was a yogurt mess of course!  I used 1/2 cup of Fage 0% i picked up on special at Kroger yesterday!  I scored an awesome deal, the entire 2 cup container was only $3.79!  I grabbed two!  I mixed with some Carmel Delight Fiber One, raisins, and some of B’s chocolate Fro-yo.  Ben & Jerry’s I think! 

 

It was a fun-filled Saturday!  The kind of day you wished you had every weekend.  I am totally loving the warmer weather and can’t wait to get some yard work done too!  Hooray for Spring!

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!
