My kids have a couple of things they like to make with me. Anything that involves licking the spoon, anything that involves snacking on chocolate chips, and anything that involves sprinkling cheese.
So basically cookies, cakes, pizza, and quesadillas.
We made quesadillas last night and they were a big help.
They really just ate all the cheese.
I made the quesadillas and they ate dinner off a cutting board standing in a chair.
Bad mom award? Nah... They ate and it was a fun experience.
I made nachos for the husband and I.
I measured everything out so I didn't overdo it in calories. That could have easily happened with the cheese, turkey burger, and chips.
Mine consisted of tortilla chips, taco turkey burger, 2% cheddar, corn, jalapeños, onion, and a tablespoon of light ranch dressing. All baked in the oven to melt the cheese.
It was so nice out yesterday that after dinner we played outside.
Once we got the kids to bed we got lost in Lost... We are watching 3 episodes every night!
This morning was the usual. Coffee, protein shake, and the gym for an hour of cardio.
On my way home I stopped for a soy chai tea.
I've been avoiding lattes lately. They are loaded with calories and sugar. Plus they are expensive.
When I got home I used the last of my laughing cow cinnamon on a sandwich thin with banana and chias.
Plus a pear+cinnamon on the side.
Must get more pears now!
I tried something new for lunch...
I spread a whole grain tortilla with reduced fat veggie cream cheese. Then I added 1/2c diced veggies (cucumber, red pepper, and carrot). I rolled it up in plastic wrap and left it in the fridge for a few hours. Then I sliced it like pinwheels.
Delicious! I'm on a cream cheese kick that's for sure.
I made a reservation for tomorrow night at a great restaurant near us. I can't wait for our date night!
What are your plans for the weekend?
