Had on hand...

Hey everyone!  Hope you guys had a great weekend!  Mine was fun & busy with a baby shower on Sunday anddd....
...our 6th annual cousins weekend at my cousin's shore house in Tuckerton!J

As usual, it was wall-to-wall chatter, laughing and FOOD!  Even though Scott was SHOCKED we didn't spend the whole weekend eating spaghetti & meatballsJ, we DID chow down on some pulled pork and my cousin's AWESOME 4-cheese mac & cheese...

...and of course, plenty of festive dessertsJ 

But come Monday, after a week of TOO many treats & ice cream cones last week, it was BACK to the grind!

Monday Recap:

8:00am:  Hot Lemon Water

9:30am:  All-natural "cafe mocha"
  • 1 cup coffee
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Milk of your choice (I stole some of Katie's 2%J)
That actually really hits the spot and the 2 teaspoons of honey is just enough to sweeten the cocoa powder.

10:30am:  Breakfast- Toasted Coconut yogurt with almonds & flax seed

12:30pm:  Lunch-  Trader Joe's Chicken Burger with 1/2 avocado & red onion

 3:00pm:  Snack- 1/2 bowl Life cereal

5:30pm:  Dinner- Tandoori chicken with mashed chickpeas & peas 

This is called 'what can I make with what I already have when it's WAYYYY to gloomy & rainy to go grocery shopping!'  hehehehehe  Thankfully, I had everything on hand to pull this meal together in a jiff!
Spicy & tangy yogurt-marinated grilled chicken, creamy mashed chickpeas...and the one green vegetable we ALWAYS have on hand!  hahahahhaha  Not too shabby for not going to the grocery store in about 2 1/2 weeks!J

6:30-7:50pm:  Beginner's Power Yoga
And despite the absolute MONSOON we had last night, I haddd to get myself to yoga last night.  I hadn't had a class since Wednesday morning and was VERY ready to get back in the swing!  It felt good...even if my head hurt from all of the headstands we practiced last nightJ hahahhaha

But anyway, I gotta get to the grocery store today.  I already can't WAIT to hit the farmer's market this weekend after a 2-week hiatus!  I think every dish next week is going to be veggies, veggies & more veggies.

Have a great Tuesday!
