Sunday Softball and Stuff Costumes and Cranberries!
Posted Jan 11 2009 5:32pm
We won our softball game!!! A wonderful way to end our weekend. I am starting to kinda like the sport...well kinda. I love that hubby and I get to do it together, it's quality time for sure.
This afternoon after Church, I got to plan my week of events,meals and exercise plan. On Sundays I like to sit outside,(because it's so nice in sunny So CAL) with three things;
#1 The laptop to update my google calender, and find some new recipes
#2 My big planner that I have to write everything in, grocery list, meals, every moment of every day(hey we only have 24 hours in a day I want to make the best of them, don't judge me..lol)
#3 My Rachel Ray and Cooking light magazines for inspiration.
While I was outside I had my turkey sub from Subway, with all the veggies and I added cranberry sauce to the top. I had some frozen mango in the freezer that I have been dying to eat as well, very nice and simple lunch.
After I was done planning the week, I was starving and couldn't figure out what to eat so I munched on some leftover cornbread with a drizzle of honey, not the best snack but it filled me for the moment. I need to get my hands busy so I strapped on the Ipod, and cleaned up the house a little bit, then practiced some of my kickboxing routine. There are a few new moves I wanted to add, and I am changing up the music.
For dinner hubby and I had Chicken Parm which I made yesterday when I made my BSI recipe, it was so nice to have dinner already prepared. I made whole wheat pasta for the hubby and I put my chicken on a bed of fresh asparagus cooked with olive oil, garlic, and a little lemon juice. I also cut up a whole wheat baguette that I have been meaning to prepare, and served it with some balsamic vinegar and light Swiss cheese(love laughing cow soooo much). I also had one glass of Merlot, I love red wine with Italian food it's so perfect reminds me of Italy every time. I think softball is one of the only sports I can eat a big meal and wine right before I go and play..haha..
I ADORE my Rachel Ray Cook Wear I got from Hubby last year for my Bday:)
Tonight after our game, one of the girls on the team was celebrating a birthday so they gave us the most amazing brownies ever. First I said no thank you, I was just planning on nibbling on hubby's and then I tasted it and caved in! It was so Delicious, it was the moistest brownie I have ever had in my life. It had chocolate morsels on top with melted carmel...mmmm...I stopped at two big bites in fear that I would have a sugar high. It was hard though.
Well off to bed I have a spin/weight class at 6am tomorrow. Goodnight everyone!
We had such a fun time last night! Hubby and I got all dressed up and headed to the Bowie's for a fantastic costume party. Hubby and I have not been to a Halloween party sense we have been married. Personally I don't ever really get dressed up for Halloween unless there is a part to go to. We decided to be Zeus and Aphrodite, yes Aphrodite is Zeus' daughter and the goddess of love and beauty..lol...They were cute and simple costumes:)
The party was elaborately decorated, they went all out! There were spider webs everywhere, candles, lights, music...and of course there was food on every table. We started with some appetizers, the table was covered with every dip possible. Spinach dip, artichoke dip, cheese dip, and guacamole, I was in heaven! I love all of these so I just put a spoonful of them all on my little plate with some wheat thins and had my own little taste test. I ended up picking at the table through the night:)
Then dinner was served, lots of chilli, cornbread (we brought some), and salads. I had a piece of our cornbread topped with a delicious bowl of chilliwith all sorts of beans in it. I also grabbed a little cranberry salad, and a spoonful of a mac and cheese casserole. Everything was wonderful and so filling. O' ya they also had a nice little variety of drinks. I started off with a glass of white wine that was very sweet and yummy. I ended up having two glasses, I was proud of myself for not over doing it.
We sat around and talked with old friends I went to high school with, that I never got to hang out with. They were the "cool kids" in high school, they were some funny peeps! I don't think I have laughed that hard in a long time, man I love stories about the good Ole' days! After dinner, hubby and I headed to the candy bar and the dessert bar.
They were so cute! I wish I would have thought about this for my wedding. I grabbed an pumpkin bar(which I found out later was light, so I went back forseconds) and a piece of coffee cake but I didn't finish it, not a big fan of cake. We got some great pics of the evening I hope you enjoy!
This morning I woke up and I was refreshed, no FOOD hangover! Man after all the junk I ate I thought I would be filling it this morning, but nope feeling great! I decided to use the cranberry sauce I made for yesterdays chicken, in a bowl of oats. I also added some fresh apple cider, the combination was perfect!
1/2 c oats 1/4 c H2O 1/2 c vanilla hempmilk 1/2 banana 1/4 cup homemade cranberry sauce (warm this up separately) 1/4 cup apple cider a little Honest foods Blueberry Vanilla Almond granola plank handful of pecans handful of flax seeds drizzle of honey on top dash of cinnamon
I loved the flavors and the aroma it was the perfect treat for this beautiful Sunday morning.
I am letting the hubby sleep in while I clean a little more. We are teaching the 3 and four year old Sunday school class so he needs all the rest he can get:) I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday, rest and recuperate before the week! I have kickboxing and a softball game tonight so I will have to rest this afternoon:) Have a good one!
