How has your work week been? The rest of mine has been really nice. Tuesday night, I decided to whip up a batch of my adjusted version of Rachael Ray’s Hot and Cold Sesame Noodles . This time, I used raw, unsalted almond butter instead of peanut butter. I made a noodle packed dish for Josh and a more veggie packed dish for me (I later added and apple to mine too):
We both enjoyed what the almond butter did to the flavor of the dish.
On Wednesday, Josh’s Mom and her friend arrived in town. They were only going to be here for a short time, so I wanted to make them a batch of muffins for their car trip. I turned to Jessica’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookie muffins . I replaced the egg with a flax egg and made mini muffins…they are deliciously addictive!
Thursday was the big day! Josh and I took most of the day off of work for our doctors appointment. Results to come! For dinner, we went to Crave with Josh’s Mom (on the right) & her awesome best friend, Katie.
Me & J:
We started out with Crave’s awesome raisin nut bread:
J got the scallops with green beans and lobster risotto:
And I got a chicken Caesar salad with balsamic on the side (instead of Caesar dressing):
It was a great dinner!!
And now, its FRIDAY!!! What do you have in store? Today will include a workout, work, dentist, dinner at home and the movies (we’re going to see Hall Pass). Saturday will include teaching pump and ? Sunday will start with a great brunch with friends followed by cleaning the house & taxes (ugh!). Enjoy it!
