Apple Pie Oatmeal

I woke up wanting pancakes but having no desire whatsoever to actually make them. So, despite the 80 degree weather that’s creeping in, oatmeal it was for breakfast! I had a crispy braeburn apple in the fridge just begging to be turned into apple pie oats! Apple Pie Oatmeal {for one}: 1/2 cup quick cooking oats 1 diced apple 2/3…

On The Bus

I’m off to my sister’s for the weekend – can’t wait to see this doofus: I made a quick and easy dinner to pack up and take with me on the bus! Tuna (made this way) packed in between 2 slices of Trader Joe’s 100% whole wheat sourdough bread with lettuce and spicy mustard! Not a sandwich for the faint…

Pike’s

Chad’s dad was passing through town so we all 3 got to sit down to a nice lunch together! We went to Pike’s – an old fashioned soda shop {and finer diner!} in Charlotte – aka – the most adorable place ever. The last time I was here I got the black bean burger which was so good I couldn’t…

Cake & Ice Cream

So… Cake and ice cream…. Okay for breakfast, right? To be totally transparent, if it’s not okay, I’m not sure I care. So you might be better off just telling me it is. It is Friday after all, and if that doesn’t mean cake and ice cream is okay for breakfast, I’m not sure what does! Okay, in all seriousness,…

Bar-B-Q

Chad and I headed out for a nice 3 mile run when he got home followed by a little abs and pushups. And then I got started on dinner: I went a little more southern for him tonight…barbecue chicken, corn and our leftover roasted potatoes It was some pretty good eating, I can’t lie! While Bone Suckin’ Sauce is my…

That Darn Meatball Sandwich

Chad came home for lunch and I excitedly asked him if he wanted me to make a turkey meatball sub for him with the leftover turkey meatballs we had (the idea had come to me the other day while cooking the meatballs so this excitement was just about at it’s peak after marinating in my head for the past day…

Happiness Is…

Morning! It looks like a beautiful sunshiny day out there! Despite our delicious dinner last night, I woke up around 6:30am feeling HUNGRY! I debated getting out of bed and making breakfast but honest to God, the thing that kept me in bed?  The lack of natural light so early in the morning.  Haha. What can I say?  I’m dedicated…

T-T-T-Tuna!

{The above title should be said like Andy Bernard} My waffle stack did an incredible job of holding me over this morning! It was well after noon before I started to feel like I needed to eat something. Lunch was surprisingly delicious! I was craving tuna and luckily happened to have some on hand. But I realized at the last…

A Cinn-Ful Stack

Morning! It’s a wet one out there  Which meant a warm, comforting breakfast was calling my name! Chad and I decided last night that waffles would be for breakfast today.  Not an uncommon practice in my life.  I usually know what I’m going to have for the next day’s breakfast about 30 seconds following my finishing the present day’s breakfast….

It’s Not Delivery, It’s Not DiGiorno

The weather warmed up nicely and I was able to get outside to go for a quick 3 mile run.  I followed it up with 1 more mile walking and then did some back stretches. Good enough for me! Dinner was super easy (as usual): Turkey pepperoni pizza on whole wheat! We picked up a whole wheat Boboli crust and…
