I was all super-domestic wife this past Monday. I use “domestic” in a good sense though…I love it sometimes! I had President’s Day off while the boy went off to work. I woke up to what almost felt like a mini-hangover from my “heavy” drinking at Valentine’s Dinner…I’m such a light weight, that champagne cocktail + glass of wine had be buzzin all night!
First task at hand was to get my butt to the grocery store for some milk, we ran out Sunday and I was not spending my day off without a cappuccino!
As soon as I returned I made a super creamy bowl of banana oats and a comforting cappuccino.
- Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax
- shredded sweetened coconut
- bit of trail mix (including some choc. and pb chips)
- spoon of raw crunchy almond butter
Mmmm perfect breakfast.
The rest of the day consisted of errands and things, including trips to a some of my favorite grocery stores :)
One thing I picked up was this:
I’ve bought this before and totally missed blogging about it, Chocolate Oikos!!!!! I was a little skeptical at first.
Looks like this when you open it…
the chocolate is hiding on the bottom
Stir it all up real good. My very first bite was interesting. I didn’t know what to make of it, but couldn’t stop eating it! Tangy yet rich and chocolaty! I’ve decided now that I’m kind of OBSESSED! I couldn’t put the spoon down :)
I made it into even more of a treat with some natural marshmallow cream, and crushed graham cracker.
Now onto dinner. I wanted to make a classic home cooked dinner, and decided on a delicious roasted chicken and roasted vegetables.
I based my chicken of the recipe for “Perfect Roast Chicken” from the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. I heart my cookbook stand :)
The chicken was stuffed with lemon, garlic, fresh thyme, and fresh rosemary.
Brushed with olive oil and added kosher salt, black pepper, and more herbs to the skin.
It was now time for Body Combat…hey it may have been a day off from work, but I wasn’t about to miss my new favorite workout of the week.
I left Brian nice detailed instructions for when to add the veggies to the oven, and to check the temp of the chicken when the timer goes off.
When I returned, the house smelt amazing and this was waiting on the stove.
Mmmm juicy chicken!
I even got ambitious and made a batch of the infamous Super Charge Me cookies!
Hope you’re having a great weekend. It was unseasonably warm today (by warm I mean high 40’s)…so I got in a great run with the boy. It’s almost bed time…yeah it’s a low-key weekend. I’d love to post about today…today, however I think that’ll have to wait until tomorrow :)
