I have been getting a bit tired of my berries/cereal/greek yogurt breakfast and so I have been working to switch it up this week. I decided to thaw some wheat pancakes I made in a big batch and froze a while ago. I adapted This Recipe but added some vanilla protein powder, PB2 and half whole wheat flour, half buckwheat flour. I think they are super filling and yummy. On the side I had some fresh strawberries and fat free cool whip. I obviously was so ravenous for these that I forgot to take a picture until I had mostly consumed the three pancakes. They are really that good, they freeze well and thaw easily overnight in the fridge. I am running low though so must be time to make some more!
For lunch I had a store bought salad I picked up at Target on Tuesday after work. There is a restaurant called D'Amico and Sons in my area and they stock our Super Target with yummy salads, wraps and sandwiches in the deli. There is one salad that I simply cannot get enough of. It has chicken, apple, cheese and walnuts with a yummy poppy seed dressing. So picked one up and enjoyed it for lunch!
While I was on my business trip last week, the bf made his own dinner, which I was pleased about instead of him just ordering out every night...BUT he made his own dinner in my favorite mixing bowls, didn't really rinse them out and left them in the dishwasher dirty for a couple days before the dishwasher got full and was run. Well needless to say my little plastic bowls had mildew or mold or something on them. SO I was pleasantly surprised and way more excited than I should be over bowls when he ordered me replacements and they arrived yesterday!!! These bowls are even better because they are cute bright colors and have nice pouring spouts, double win!
And now to the good stuff: GRILLING
I think I am obsessed with using the grill now, all I think about is looking for things I can grill. Last night I grilled turkey hot dogs, the bf had been asking for hot dogs and we thought a snow storm would ruin or grilling plans, but luckily it only rained a bit and then stopped around supper time. WOOHOO Grilling time!!!
So I grilled us some Johnsonville turkey dogs for dinner. I had also made a pasta salad they day before in preparation and had more watermelon again. The bf like the hot dogs even though they were turkey and didn't seem to mind the wheat buns :) it's the little things that count.
Now I need more ideas for grilling, especially different veggies ideas I can grill. Off to Pinterest I go!
