inally I can upload pics! Ugggh, technology sometimes. I have a lot to recap from the past day and a half.
On Tuesday evening we had some friends over for a backyard BBQ.
We ate gourmet smokies (toppings included: Gruyère cheese, bacon, sauerkraut, fried onions, pickles, and condiments), Greek pasta salad, and assorted appetizers. I drank beer and wine.
Dessert was a "make-your-own-sundae" bar:
Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce
(Recipe Adapted from Donna Hay Magazine)
1 1/2 cups chopped chocolate (dark or milk)
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 T liquid honey
3 T unsalted butter
Put everything in a saucepan over low and stir for 4-5 minutes until melted and smooth.
Yesterday morning I saw an INSANE breakfast on Caitlin's blog. I had never been happier to have eaten breakfast yet! I made it right away.
French Toast Sundae
Essentially 2 slices of French toast (dipped only in egg, and with almond butter in between) baked in 375 oven for 20 minutes. Topped with banana "soft serve" (1 banana whipped to smithereens in food processor or Vita-Mix with 2 T almond breeze). Put the soft serve on the French toast, and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Cherry on top.
That breakfast kept me full for many hours, so I ate a really late lunch. I only had 1/2 cup of leftover risotto, and a 1/2 cup Source Vanilla yogurt with chia seeds and strawberries:
In the afternoon I went to the Doctor about my foot. He moved it all sorts of ways that didn't hurt. Only I could make it hurt by pointing my toes, or bending my foot a certain way. Since there had never been any swelling, he said I probably just had an inflamed nerve, and he gave me prescription antihistamines. I HATE taking medication, so I haven't had one yet. This morning my foot actually feels a LOT better.
For supper yesterday we had to eat up some stuff in our fridge and freezer. I had 1 veggie pita pizza, with some cauliflower, and about 1/4 cup of pasta salad:
Dessert was a fudgesicle:
Tomorrow morning we will be up at 4:00 am, as we are heading out on the road at 5:00 to go to Calgary for the hubby's Half Ironman. He has been training A LOT. He has done Olympic triathlons and half marathons, and the training for those seems like nothing now that I have seen him train for this! I am so excited for him - it will be a HUGE accomplishment.
What are your plans for the weekend?
What do you consider to be your biggest accomplishment (fitness or otherwise)?
I always ask you questions ... if you have one for me, you can ask it anonymously here!
I will post another Q and A one of these days.
