This week’s grocery shopping score? 2.75lb of fresh BC blueberries for $6. I missed out on a deal for 5lbs a week ago so I’ve been watching the flyers for another sale. I just love to freeze fresh blueberries for use in the Winter months.
I might even go back for another box since I have managed to munch down about a quarter of that box over the last couple of days.
I also scored waffles on sale for something different in the breakfast department. Love. The blueberry one is matched with a drizzle of maple syrup…and those perfect raspberries are matched with almond butter. Joy.
Clearly I was a wee bit sucked in by a few sale items this week…I think it’s been about 2 years since I even considered buying S&S bars. Cashew buttery goodness is evil. And by evil I clearly mean delicious.
After hitting the gym for some easy cardio (ya I know, did you notice I haven’t mentioned the gym in six weeks? you didn’t? um, nevermind then!) I had planned a salad but I was too hungry so instead I crammed most of my salad ideas into a whole wheat tortilla.
Black beans, cheese, salsa, light sour cream, tomatoes. I then crammed that bad boy full of lettuce leaves and ate it standing in my kitchen.
For dinner I managed to turn a “clean out the freezer” meal into a fairly decent dinner for two. Michael’s been running ragged with a work conference all week so when he suggested popping by after work I quickly modified my dinner to include him.
I simply mixed a couple of cups of cooked rotini with carrots, broccoli and cooked chicken breast bites (just add the veg to the pasta while it’s boiling), tossed it all with about 3/4 cup of store bought Alfredo sauce and heated it all through.
Right before serving I mixed in some diced tomato and a couple of chopped green onions for a bit of freshness.
I made a quickie salad of lettuce, radishes and cucumber to fill out our plates. Not the most gourmet meal but it certainly filled our tummies.
We finished the evening with a couple of ice cream bars, a walk with the dogs, and a couple of truly random movies on TV. Not too shabby for a hump day. :)
