Bare Bones

by Meghann on June 30, 2009

I think I overestimated how much food I had in fridge for this week. It’s only Tuesday and I feel like I am already at bare bones. I have plenty of fruit, yogurt, & spinach, but not much else. Time to get creative.

With not much to work with I was quite proud of the meal I managed to put together for dinner tonight.

The meal required use of a lot of the last bit of ingredients I had. Including my final sweet potato onion which I roasted along with a zucchini and apple for 20 minutes at 415 degrees.

I topped the roasted veggies with the last of a can of chickpeas, the final scrapings from a jar of marinara sauce and the final shreds of the last bit of jalapeno cheese.

With 1/2 of an Italian Pita torn around the edge, this meal was perfect! Marinara sauce is and will forever be my no fail favorite meal to make. Yum!

For some reason I still had two large zucchinis at the bottom of my vegetable drawer. I took inspiration from Bobbi’s recent Zucchini Bread adventure and made a batch of Zucchini Muffins from this recipe on Cooking Light.

I followed the recipe exactly, but added crushed walnuts and chopped dates to the mix. They ended up very moist and flavorful. Yum!

I had 2 of the mini muffins fresh out of the oven for dessert. Perfect.

I wanted to say a big Thank You for all of your wonderful comments about my past cruise photos. It’s so strange I never think I look that different until I start looking through old pictures and see the change. I still feel like the same Meghann, just a healthier happier version. 🙂

Trying the Grass

Happy Tuesday everyone! Now that Monday is behind us the week is all down hill from here. 😉 For my work out this morning I started  with a short 3 mile run. I ran the 3 miles at a 9:15 pace and felt great at the end. I felt like my body could go faster more »

Empty DVR

June 29, 2009

Summer is no good for the DVR. I used to come home to a happy DVR filled with lots of great shows to choose from to watch. But, now I barely have enough to keep me entertained as I make dinner. Right now I am settling with live TV. I feel so dirty. Has anyone more »

Bunch of Gibberish

June 29, 2009

I have spent my entire morning reading and rereading manuals on how to create marketing campaigns in our sales system at work. I am very much a visual learner and simply reading up on the process is not working. Unfortunately I have yet to get the WebEx training to work so, now I am trying more »

New Shoes, New Bowl

June 29, 2009

I could not wait to get out the door this morning and test out my brand new running shoes. There is something about running in new shoes that just makes that particular run so exciting. As soon as I took off, I knew I had chosen the right shoes. Just as I remembered them in more »
