Today has basically been my perfect Sunday.
Wake up, eat a great breakie, work out with the boy, go out for brunch with friends and then cook a fantastic dinner at home and watch the Olympics. Can it get any better?! This afternoon I had a late snack around 5:00 (after we ran errands and did stuff around town) of a fage with 1/2 cup Go Lean Crunch (Honey Almond Flax). I was craving frozen yogurt but decided to save money and have this instead. It fulfilled my craving for something cool, creamy with a little crunch. Perfecto!
Ryan and I were lazy for a little while after that and then made a yummy and healthy dinner at home. Ryan had caught this massive grouper a couple months ago and froze it, so tonight he grilled that outside while I made some spinach and sweet potato fries for sides. For the spinach, we just used a 10 oz box of frozen chopped spinach and I heated it up with sea salt, pepper and about a tbsp of light smart balance. For the sweet potato fries, I sliced up a sweet potato (only 1, the fries were just for me!) and tossed it with 2 tsp of evoo and this spicy “Everglades Heat” spice mix I found in the depths of Ryan’s pantry. Baked the fries for 30 minutes at 400 and they turned out perfect—spicy, crispy and pure yum.
We also had a salad with some Kraft Fat Free Italian dressing. I found this in Ryan’s fridge and it’s not my first choice because it has HFCS in it (YUCK!!!) but there was nothing else. It was either a tsp of this or eat my lettuce dry, so I chose the dressing route.
I dipped my sweet potato fries in Texas Pete of course! 🙂
Look at these cutie place mats my mom bought Ryan and I for our new kitchen table!
And since I can’t end dinner without something sweet as everyone knows, I made some dessert for myself while Ryan finished his coldstone creation from the other night. I bought these yummy VitaTops (from the VitaMuffin people) the other day at the store to try.
I’ve tried the muffins and love them but can’t find them at my grocery store in Orlando for some reason! These “tops”did not disappoint. It was like eating a small slice of delicious chocolate cake. I topped mine with a spoonful of almond butter 🙂
Just looking at that picture makes me want to go make another one. It was SO good and good for you, too! Can’t beat that for a dessert, right?!
I’m about to take a hot shower, get in my jammies and watch the Olympics to finish up this great weekend. Tomorrow its back at the grind with a new class at school (chocolate & sugar!) and to finish up my last week and a half at works. Times they are a changin’!
