Time for a Project….

April 29, 2015

I spent most of the day yesterday shopping for items to decorate my laundry room. We have lived here for almost 16 years, and I’ve never done anything fun in there. It’s a fairly small laundry room, so it’s not like I’m putting a chase lounge in there or anything, I just want to perk it up a bit. I did paint a few random flowers on the walls a few years ago, but it’s always looked a bit cheesy, and after spending a little time on Pinterest, I decided I needed a small project.

Hopefully that gets done tomorrow! 🙂

On Monday, I went out to dinner, but I had made Mike a meatloaf. I’m not sure what I did wrong because this recipe taste awesome every time I make it, but for some reason, it just wasn’t great. Mike choked it down.

Last night, I made a big skillet of quinoa and chicken. It tasted great, but we needed a veggie. I grilled some asparagus, chopped it up and added it to the skillet. It tasted great. Then, I was bored and waiting on Mike. I added some corn. Still great! Now it needed a little moisture. I added some chicken broth. When Mike got home, I lifted the lid on the skillet and the broth had turned the asparagus to mush. It was disgusting and I threw away dinner. 

I made Mike a skillet of breakfast food, and I hated to throw away the meatloaf that he choked down the day before since I was already throwing away a skillet of chicken and quinoa! I found a jar of Beef Gravy, and I ate that for dinner. Dinner was eh……not worth the 14 points.

Today’s dinner will be Tilapia Taco’s, which we haven’t had in forever and I’m certain that it WILL be delicious!

    That all sounds good except for the cottage cheese. I see this in a lot of smoothie recipes. One day I just need to brave and give it a try. I know there is so much protein in cottage cheese, it must be a filling smoothie!!

  2. Love having a pick me up shake in the afternoon! I need to get me some PB2 powder!
    I make a mocha coffee shake: 1 C. Almond Milk(unsweetened), 1 T. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, 1 -2 Raw Stevia Packets, 1 packet of Cafe Bustelo instant espresso, 1/4 cup 2% cottage cheese(you don’t even taste it) and some coffee ice cubes. Oh and some chia seeds if I remember. 2ppv
