Veggie Base

by Meghann on May 7, 2010

Looks like someone was just as interested in my dinner tonight as I was.

Ahem… Bad Maddie!

I can’t blame her though, tonight’s dinner was a good one!

I started with a base of steamed broccoli and topped it with a serving of pre packaged ravioli, marinara sauce, and goat cheese.

The marinara sauce – Barilla Green and Black Olive – is a favorite of mine. πŸ™‚

It has big chunks of olives throughout the sauce and all I had to do was bulk it up with some portobello mushrooms.

I really liked this dish because it had the vegetable as the base and the ravioli as the topping. You can’t tell from the photos, but there was a ton of broccoli under there. πŸ™‚

So simple, but so good!

My co-worker had passed around some homemade Macadamia Nut cookies this afternoon, but I was too full from my big lunch to enjoy it.

Instead I brought it home and saved the cookie for part of my dessert.

Vanilla Yogurt + Fresh Strawberries + Cookie = the perfect Friday evening treat! πŸ™‚

I had to run to the mall earlier this evening to pick up a few things and I could believe how PACKED the mall was. At 8:30 pm I found it difficult to find a parking spot and once inside the mall was full of people – particularly teenagers.

I was on the phone with Derek and he didn’t seem to be as surprised as I was about the packed mall. He informed me that back in the day his Mom used to drop him off at the mall on Friday night and he would loiter with his friends until closing.

I – on the other hand – am from a small town where out ‘mall’ was actually a long empty hallway with a jcPenny’s on one end and a Dave Julius on the other. It was definitely not the place ‘to be seen’ on Friday nights.

Wal-Mart was actually the place to be seen. (no comment lol)

Were you a mall rat back in the day?

I have an early day tomorrow!

Anyone heading to the Dankin Triathlon Expo at Fort Wilderness tomorrow? Be sure to stop by the SpiBelt booth and say Hi!

My cycling class this morning kicked my booty! My favorite instructor was back and he was back with a vengeance! We chased, we jumped, we did intervals, and we spun our little hearts out! Nothin’ like a power class to give you a good sweat in the morning. πŸ™‚ Breakfast was prepared skillfully last night. more Β»
