Happy Father’s Day to all the Father’s and Happy Summer to all others! It rhymes – woohoo! My Sunday was an awesome day. We got so much done even if we were going non-stop.
I started my day off with a childhood favorite – Cream of Wheat with 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar and 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter. I like Whipped Butter because it’s only 2 Weight Watcher Points instead of 3.
With a side of organic strawberries – so good!
All together with some decaf cinnamon vanilla nut coffee – Yum!
After breakfast we headed out to do a little shopping. We stopped at Sear’s to get a credit for our Fridge. They have a 30 Day price matching guarantee and the fridges went on sale another 5% - yahoo to money back! While we were there, we decided to buy that matching stove – doesn’t it look awesome! More pics and such to come when we pick it up next week after Vegas.
We snacked on some of our new Pop Chips – Cheddar as we drove around. Pretty tasty – I LOVE this flavor – I imagine it is how Cheddar Pringles would taste.
Our next stop was Target and Home Depot. We bought a HUGE planter and some organic soil to plant the Cherry Tomato Plants my mom brought us. I am soooo excited for homegrown tomatoes. Hopefully, I can make them GROW! They have little flowers already – yeah!
We sprinkled some Crushed Red Pepper Flakes to keep the cats and birds out.
While at Target, we used our Fling coupon and bought a pack. I wasn’t going to buy them when I saw the ingredients (I buy NOTHING that has Hydrogenated Oils in them – these are transfats even if minimal). However, The Husband wanted to try them so I added them to his occasional treat list. With treats, you can’t pay attn to ingredients, right?
I, of course, had to have a bite because well, it’s chocolate and hazelnut and crispy. I have to admit, they are pretty darn tasty….why can’t they get rid of the man made hydrogenated oils?!
We stopped for a light lunch at M&S Tasty. I ordered the lowfat grilled teriyaki chicken and veggies over soba noodles. I LOVE this dish and really need to replicate it.
When we got home, we cleaned our grill (The Husband’s requirement before we could put it on the new concrete) and planted our new tomatoes – yeah!
Tonight’s dinner was all about The Husband’s favorites. I grilled up some Tri Tip Steaks ~ ½ in Chaka MMMM Sauce and ½ in TJ’s Island Soyaki.
I made healthy “Home Fries” – bake your potato in the microwave for 4 minutes. Cut into “fry” shapes and cook in a pan with 2 tsp healthy oil until browned. Season with garlic salt and pepper.
Plus corn on the cobb!
And since we need to use up our fruit, I made up a big fruit salad. The secret to keeping your fruit from turning brown is to use a can of canned fruit in natural juice. I added fruit cocktail in pear juice with a bunch of fresh fruit (cherries, strawberries, pineapple, nectarines, pluots, and apricots). So fresh and sweet and just plain good.
Here is what I had for dinner. I had also made up a big garden salad, but, we didn’t eat it. Guess what I’ll be having for lunch tomorrow :)
