Kid's classic...

Monday Recap:

Breakfast- Almond & Coconut KIND bar

Lunch- Crispy Chicken Salad
So after a stop at a playground for Katie, my Mom & I made a stop at the perennial kid classic:  Friendly's!  I used to LOVEEEE when we had a Friendly's at our local mall and that would be the 'fancy dining option' (aka-NOT McDonald's) on our monthly trip via bus (which made it a HUGE deal).  It was ESPECIALLY essential during our Christmas time 'power shopping' outings.  THEMS were the daysJ

Anyway, this salad wasn't the healthiest of pick on their menu of veritable caloric-potholes, but still a step up from their sandwiches & burgers (which I used to eat with such abandonJ).  Sometimes I'd rather ditch the calories from the dressing (and suggested hard-boiled egg) for the crispy chicken.  A little more calories from the grilled version, but a worthwhile 'splurge' on occasion for me.

And of course we had to get Katie the classic 'cone head' ice cream sundaeJ  It's everything that's right in a kid's worldJ

Dinner- Lasagna Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Sooooooo I mixed cooked spaghetti squash with diced tomatoes, ground turkey, garlic, Parmesan & ricotta and called it lasagna stuffed spaghetti squash....until the squash 'shells' cracked and made for a VERY unappealing LOOKING dinner. (And I say this knowing FULL WELL that all of my pics aren't THAT appealing looking all the time.J)  BUT at the end of the day, it WAS a delicious combo...but we'll just pretend it looked like THIS pictureJ

Workout:  Power Yoga

Dessert- Tall "Skinny Vanilla Cream"
So I met one of my favorite yoga friends (Hi Sharon!) for "coffee" last night, but since I wasn't in much of a 'caffine' mood post-yoga class (and decaf makes me dizzy & shaky...weird, right??), I settled for one of my ole 'skinny favs':  Steamed non-fat milk with a pump of sugar-free vanilla syrup with a sprinkle of cinnamon & nutmeg.  Clocks in around 120 calories for a warm & cozy/non-caffeinated drink...yumJ

Alrighty...time to get this day started.  It's supposed to be another sunny one in Jersey.  Hope you have a great Tuesday!
