A Food-filled Weekend

19 Oct


Hope everyone is doing great on this fabulous Tuesday and I hope you had a great weekend! I spent my entire Sunday cooking with my man. I brought over the Eat-Clean recipe book and we got to work. We made the…

Butternut squash soup

This was okay. Honestly I was not very impressed. Butternut squash soup usually doesn’t have a lot of onion or garlic in it so it taste kind of funny. I like my butternut squash soup sweet and creamy so I didn’t really expect this.

 Spilt pea soup

Again, not what I expected. This was really watery and bland. infact, now that I think of it, the only spilt pea soup I ever enjoyed was Amy’s. Yes, it was in a can! Gasp.

& Quinoa with sun-dried tomatoes

Now this was great! It had so many unique flavors and textures I can’t wait to make more. I’m glad we made a double batch because my mom can’t stop eating it; she never eats my food! We used a blend of red and white quinoa and it turned out real pretty 🙂

We also made some other things like pesto, garlic butter, hummus and roasted veggies, yum!

Random photo’s of the food being cooked:


I had a wonderful smoothie for breakfast along with some almond oats:

Smoothie: Frozen strawberries and mango in pineapple orange juice with 2 scoops of protein powder topped with pomegranate seeds

Maggie is always trying to eat my breakfast, she is so weird. Maggie also loves oatmeal but not just to eat: she claws at it as if the oatmeal is her prey. What other cat plays with oatmeal? Come on. I don’t understand lil’ mag sometimes but she is soo cute! I love her. After our breakfast she fell asleep in my laundry basket:

Night Maggers.

I went on a 3-mile nature walk and saw some cute baby deer the one time I don’t bring my camera! Grr. Don’t you just love how things work out that way? 🙂 Oh well maybe next time…

Now I am going to get started on some essay writing then hit up the gym for some Two-Class-Tuesday, woo! Tonight I plan on watching The Biggest Loser again because I think I may be hooked on it after watching it last week. The Biggest Loser is also so inspiring to watch, don’t you agree? Can you imagine being 300 pounds and working out that hard-core? I can’t. I admire each and every one of then for doing that. That’s awesome.

Do you have a favorite show you like to watch?

    I just came across your blog and love it! Your quinoa with tomatoes looks yummy. And one of my fave shows is The Office!

    I absolutely LOVE being sore. It’s probably one of my most favorite feelings, haha. It reminds me of how hard I worked the day(s) before. 🙂
