143.8…The Holidays Are Over
It’s March 1st and the holidays are over. You’re thinking: “What are you talking about!?! The holidays ended a long time ago.” Yes…this is true but I’ve been eating, drinking and celebrating like they are in full swing! Spring is coming, the weather is changing and so must my eating habits. Well, at least after my upcoming trip to Napa this weekend. :)
After the meeting at the school last night, Hubby and I grabbed a quick dinner at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza. We shared hummus:
And our favorite Chopped Chicken Salad:
The tomatoes were all mine. :)
I discovered a container of Fage yogurt in my fridge that is going to expire soon so I made use of it this morning for breakfast. How could I forget about you old friend?
Fage yogurt with a little strawberry jelly mixed in, All Bran Bran Buds cereal (great crunch!) and some strawberries.
After dropping the kids at school, I went to Starbucks for a green tea and to read some blogs before my cooking class at Great News started. Today’s class was called: Easy Everyday Cooking.
The first recipe was Honey-Chipotle Broiled Salmon with Corn and Cilantro Mashed Potatoes:
The glaze on the salmon was excellent and the potatoes with the corn were fabulous!!
Next up was my favorite: Feta Turkey Burgers with Grilled Red Onions and Garlic Toasted Buns:
So moist and delicious! I loved the feta in the burgers. I hope to make these next week!
The next plate contains two recipes: Chicken Breast with Roasted Garlic Lemon Sauce and Apricot and Panko Crusted Pork Tenderloin:
The garlic sauce on the chicken was really simple and tasted great….how can you go wrong with roasted garlic? I loved the apricot sauce on the pork…and this is coming from someone who doesn’t like “fruit with her food.”
Dessert was Easy Root Beer Float Cake with Root Beer Icing:
It was served with vanilla ice cream. I loved this and I don’t like Root Beer. The cake was moist and the icing was dreamy!!!
I picked up the kids from school and came straight home. It’s actually almost time to get dinner started. I would like to go to bed early tonight if possible…hopefully that can be arranged. :)
Do you like Root Beer? I have never liked it.
Do you drink soda? I used to drink a ton of soda in college until one time I got a really bad UTI. I was told to stop drinking soda and drink more water. Haven’t touched the stuff since. :)
