Okay, before we get to a little fun giveaway I think I better clear up a few random things.
I have about 20 or so minutes to get this post done while this is going on in the room next to me. That’s what I get. As much as I can get done on the little window of time I have in the morning. My time is also spent guzzling down the perfect summer mocha. Ha ha.
Yes, the fact that they aren’t wearing matching pajamas is bother me. I have problems (and I’m a little behind on laundry).
Soy milk for Judah. Chocolate milk made with 1/2 of an instant breakfast and 2% milk for Joaquin.
Ran 3 slow miles on the treadmill at the gym.
Taught a 45 minute BOSU class.
I even took an instagram picture of myself to try to be cool.
So dumb. I also made the mistake of not wearing my new Handful sports bra so I pretty much looked like a 5th grader.
Later on I ran 3 miles on the treadmill at home while STUFT Daddy and the boys planted some flowers outside. I had to finish this movie that I started watching about 3 weeks ago.
Also, I feel like I better disclose the fact that I eat like a horse. With the amount of exercise that I do I really can put the food away. Not all of it makes it on the blog. I only show you the stuff I get excited about and want to take pictures of.
With that being said, here’s a couple highlights form yesterday’s eats so I can crash the What I Ate Wednesday party yet again.
I was so hungry yesterday morning I had to bypass my standard breakfast STUFTwich and go for some French toast (made with my favorite bread) topped with SunButter, PB Crave Razzle Dazzle, sugar free maple syrup and blueberries.
Lunch was a salad while I attempted to break the boys away from their “work” to get them to eat their grilled cheese sandwiches.
I don’t even remember what made it in the salad- chicken breast,broccoli, a serrano chili, Scotty B’s bacon jalapeño sauce, some BBQ sauce, broccoli, low fat Ranch, crushed red pepper, Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning, etc.
I know, cool glass straw, huh?
I know you’ve been missing my daily pictures of roasted broccoli slaw and I have to tell you a little something.
We do not have any broccoli slaw in the house. None. We haven’t for almost three days now and I think it might be a new record.
What we do have though is homegrown zucchini and squash. Lots of it. Thanks to my main man STUFT Daddy.
Since we’re all about saving money and budgeting these days I’ve been using up our free squash in place of broccoli slaw. That saves $1.29 or so a day if you’re keeping track.
Last night instead of just doing the standard roasted zucchini, I wanted to pretend to make some noodles.
Dumb or brilliant. I’m still not sure. But….
it was delicious!!!
Roasted Zucchini Noodles
as many zucchinis as you want
seasoning: garlic salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, dried oregano, nutritional yeast (or parmesan)
Spray the pan with nonstick spray. Spread out the zucchini “noodles”. Spray with nonstick spray and sprinkled on seasonings of choice.
Roast in oven for about 20 minutes at 400 or 375 convection.
Um yeah, This is so going to be my new thing.
Well, this is actually (topped with roasted mushrooms, tofu and fresh basil).
Let’s not forget that cheese less sandwich either.
I’m going to save so much money.
Well shoot. The post was supposed to be a little giveaway for you, but I got distracted and now my time is up. Beavis.
I’ll get a short giveaway post up later today for you. You can win some chips! Woo hoo!
Oh, and since this post just turned into randomness, I better clear up a little Kitty confusion.
We have Kitty. (You can read all about his story here.)
Then we have Flat Kitty.
Because I’m just that person who wanted to make a cut out of her cool cat to cart around and take pictures with.
We also have Nala. (She was in the picture from yesterday, but she’s usually a little camera shy.)
Speaking of Flat Kitty…..
I know you want one of these.
I’m mailing some out today. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want one.
Okay, I’m off to do a little laundry before we really get things started around here.
We may be heading out to Bath and Body Works today because I got an email about the big semi-annual sale and it’s time to stock up on some summer smelling wallflowers.
I might be able to buy a couple with all the money I’m going to be saving from not buying broccoli slaw in bulk the next month or so.
Have a good day!
