Tonight’s Creation

by Meghann on March 3, 2010

Some nights I come home with a clear plan in my head for dinner. I’ll know exactly what I have in my fridge and exactly how I want to prepare it. I may even go as far as having the whole week of meals prepped ahead of time and marked on my google calendar for easy reference.

BUT, then there are the nights – like tonight – when I come home with no clue what to make. I’ll just randomly start pulling items out of the fridge until a complete meal forms right in front of me.

These meals tend to be my most creative and favorites. ;)

The sauce consisted of applesauce, cinnamon, and pepper. If you had some maple syrup on hand I believe that would make a great addition as well.

I finished my bowl off with the already preprared barley

Can’t forget the cornbread. ;)

Yum! Like I said above this meal would have been amazing with just a touch of maple syrup, but it was also delicious as is.

Before my doctor’s appointment this afternoon I had a homemade granola bar.

Dessert tonight was a combination of dried kiwi, mini pb cups, dark chocolate edamame, and dark chocolate power berries.

Running Late

March 3, 2010

Good Morning! Was anyone else running late this morning? Just me? I got up on time, did my Core Fusion Body Sculpt DVD (review found here), quickly showered, and realized I had a few minutes to spare. That was when I made the rookie mistake of sitting at my computer and trying to finish last more »
