This labor day weekend we headed up to my parents’ lakehouse. We ate, fished, swam, walked and did a lot of relaxing. I’m a third of the way into the Gone Girl book and really loving it. My glute is feeling 85% better so I’ve started doing some powerlifting training with Andrew. I just started this past Sunday but it’s fun to train rather than just workout. Before I knew Andrew I thought powerlifting was like lifting a heavy rock on top of a pillar, but now I know it’s just three lifts: squat, deadlift, benchpress. I’m training for fun, but Andrew is competing this month! On to the food..
Monday: Chicken Sausage, Spinach, Ricotta & Tortellini Pasta. LOVED THIS. Based off this recipe. I used ricotta instead of half-and-half and chicken sausage instead of regular.
Tuesday: Leftover pasta from Tuesday.
Wednesday: Cocoa Whole Wheat Toast topped with ricotta & eggs. Served with a side of broccoli. Cocoa bread on blog FRIDAY.
Thursday: Polenta Pizza. Recipe soon!
Friday: Quick dinner stop at Chick-fila on the way to the lake.
Saturday: Pulled Pork Tacos at the lake.
Sunday: Chipotle Burrito Bowl + a margarita split with Andrew.
leftover pizza + salad.
leftover chicken sausage tortellini pasta.
overnight banana chia oatmeal with peanut butter.
breakfast at the lake = egg + cheese + bacon biscuit (I had 2…so good).
more banana chia seed oatmeal eaten on the go.
bluebell vanilla ice cream + black bean brownie.
obsessed with Cherry Republic Cherry Salsa.
chai tea latte. Since I’ve been making my own chai tea latte concentrate I now realize how sweet the Starbucks version is. I like the homemade version better. But it’s hard to beat the Starbucks experience, ya know?
Red velvet fro-yo with oatmeal cookies.
Smoothie + cocoa bread with peanut butter (recipe FRIDAY).
PB mug cake. Don’t remember the specific ingredients but it was a mix of oat flour, peanut butter, brown sugar, baking powder, chocolate chips.
And some randomness. I had a day date with a friend and found this gold moose head at Z Gallerie that I’m obsessed with. I just don’t know where I’d put him in my house. He was only like $35 too. I need go back and get him. I’m sure I could find a place.
And also…I totally look like my parents’ dog in this pictures. We both have sleepy, early morning eyes.
And that’s it! Hope you had a great labor day weekend. Yay short weeks!
