Mother’s Cupboard

This morning I woke up with a start and panicked because my alarm clock was flashing 12:00!  Not normally a big deal for my morning schedule, but of course it had to happen on the day I had an 8:00am appointment to get my car all fixed up for my big road trip.  Thankfully it was only 7:30…

After I dropped my car off, I walked the couple of kms home where coffee was waiting for me…


I don’t do a hearty breakfast that early in the day (yes I know you are all rolling your eyes about 8am being early…LOL)… so I opted for a green smoothie


In the KA today:  ice, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/4 cup whole oats, Amazing Meal, flax meal, baby spinach, and UVAB.

Love the oats in there!  Kind of “malty” tasting and they totally help make a meal out of the drink.

Since I didn’t load up on groceries this weekend, it was a bit of a struggle to find a lunch meal today.  I put the last of the spinach in my smoothie so veggie sticks had to take the place of my planned salad…with hummus


Matched with a slice of pizza from the freezer…


Substitute for afternoon sugar rush… Lemonade + Blueberry POM.


Fresh watermelon


and a Club Soda Cupcake


I didn’t walk back to get my car back until the very end of the day so there was no time for grocery shopping before dinner…no way I was doing that while hungry! 

I had been putting a no-grocery meal idea together in my head anyway so decided to go with it.

Tuna Noodle Casserole with a secret ingredient!


Smart pasta, double veggies, dill and dijon…aaaand…

Mashed sweet potato!


All mixed up with tuna and low sodium mushroom soup….sprinkled with light cheddar…

Tuna always needs a pickle!


I forfeited this evening’s leg workout in lieu of restocking the fridge. 


Then spent over an hour on the phone with my Mom discussing this great little condo that I may have finally foundeeeeeeeeeeeek.  By the time we finished talking I decided to just make tea, blog, and watch Glee.  It’s the season finale already.  :( *pouts*


Here’s hoping my early morning helps lead to an early night.

Hey, I have a question about your smoothie drink. Can you taste the baby spinach that you mixed into it?

Also, I hope you loved Glee!!!

Jen said...

SQUEEE!!!! A possible condo??? that is so exciting!!!

(Is it wrong that everytime I write condo I want to write condom...apparently I am a twelve year old boy!)

What did you think of the glee finale???

I've never thought to put oats into a smoothie. I can see where it would boost up the oomph of it, though!
