Can't beat that...

Thursday Recap:

8:00am:  Coffee with creamer

10:00am:  Breakfast- Cherries
Random, I know...but it was the only thing that sounded appealing at the moment.  Although not NEARLY as appealing as...

12:30pm:  Lunch- Low-cal Mac & Cheese
Oh man, was this good...AND low-cal.  How can you beat that???
  • 1 handful pasta, cooked (preferably wheat, but we'll all survive if it's whiteJ)
  • 2 wedges laughing cow cheese
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons 1% milk
  • Sprinkle of Parmesan
  • Another little *touch* I added was a little sprinkle of garlic powder, which REALLY put the P in POW!! 
Cook & drain the pasta and add all of ingredients back into the hot pot to help melt the cheese along.  You could also add anything GREEN to this (spinach, arugula, broccoli) to bump up the volume AND the nutrition (I just didn't have anything on hand or arugula would have been my mac & cheese BFF!!)  This was SOOOOOOOOOO creamy & dreamy and a low-cal way to enjoy one of your favorites.  Some days nothing will do but creamy carbs.  (and it must be that kinda day for Scott, who requested leftover Bove's lasagna for dinner tonight!)

8:00pm:  Dinner- THE BEST
Yep...good thing that mac & cheese was filling, as my Austin buddy was in town and just KNEW I had to introduce her to Delorenzo's pizza as a thank you for my "intro to Austin."  Only bummer?  An HOUR+ wait on a Thursday night. (although still not as bad as that FOUR hour wait that one time!)  But of course all negative thoughts are pushed aside once you get ONE BITE of the good stuff (in this case- a red clam, my FAVORITE & a artichoke, red pepper & olive pie)  Thankfully Delorenzo's is ALWAYS worth the wait!!  It really is THE BEST PIZZA EVER.  (seriously, just search it on my amount of mentions is almost shamefulJ)

And we just so happened to have an awesome follow-up by way of cupcakes that our "Philly friend" brought from Whipped Bakeshop.  So we split these babies in quarters and sampled away!
The classic red velvet, TART lemony and cinnamon-y cannoli were all delicious, but the jelly filled almond was the clear cut winner.  Pizza, cupcakes and LOTS of can you beat that night???J

And there was no exercise to speak of yesterday, but I already got myself to power yoga this morning and headin off for some Body Jam TONIGHT!  Wohooooooooooooooo!!!  Hope you guys have good plans for the weekend.  Ours is shaping up to be busy but pretty fun.  We shall see!

Hope you have a great weekend, everyone!!
