On The Grill and Leftovers

First of all I just want to THANK YOU all for your sweet comments about the shower, its so rewarding and inspiring to hear those things after all the work we put in :) You guys are the BEST!!

Spring is sloooooowly creeping its way to Boston, and now even these 40 degree sunny days are feeling like heaven. It's funny too because as soon as the weather starts to shift people break out their flip flops and t-shirts's not THAT warm, but I'll admit sometimes you just want to force the Spring here!!

One thing I am LOVING about the milder weather is that we've used the grill TWICE!! Yay!! Last night the roomie and I cooked up a package of chicken, some zucchini, and red onion...all things bought for the Bridal Shower, but not used. This made for a spectacular dinner.Especially when I get to use my mom's BBQ sauce on the chicken...mmm.The other AWESOME thing about grilling food is...LEFTOVERS!! These items made for a spectacular salad for lunch today!!
I chopped up some leftover chicken (with BBQ sauce), zucchini, and red onion and threw it on top of some greens and carrots with a drizzle of Annie's Lite Honey Mustard Dressing!

SUCH a great lunch at work :)

Actually this week has been ALL about the leftovers....muffins, scones, fruit, yogurt, frittata...pretty much everything. The best part is definitely all the leftover cut fruit. I had some with my breakfast!
I also enjoyed some Jam from the Brunch as well...with toast and a mix of Almond Butter and Peanut Butter...its kind of smeared together (the darker stuff is the AB). I also had 1/3 piece of the toast with a little butter
One more time with some leftovers...Dinner Tonight!

Well I got to dance class tonight...YAY!! And on the way home had delicious visions dancing in my head of my dinner.

I had leftovers from lunch after the Spa Sunday...I had a Grilled Tenderloin Salad on Sunday:
"sliced tenderloin of beef, roasted potatoes, grilled red onions, marinated mushrooms and fried shallots, served on field greens tossed with Gorgonzola cheese and roasted red pepper tomato caper vinaigrette"
From this salad I had: 2 pieces of tenderloin, some red onion, Gorgonzola, and a potato (which I ate right away). From the fridge I had 3/4 of a Flat Out wrap, goat cheese, and this new spread I picked up at TJ's
This.Stuff.Is.Amazing...and only 15 calories per Tbsp! I made myself a kick ass personal pizza!!

  • Flat Out
  • Spread with Red Pepper Spread
  • Topped with Tenderloin
  • Red Onion
  • Few pieces of Gorgonzola
  • a little Goat Cheese
SO SO SO SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wowza!! And to top it off the "purple" onions match the plate!

Yay for Leftovers!!!!

There were also some Kale Chips tonight...although I was too full to finish themSuch great food days :)
