Unexpected Night In

by Meghann on February 18, 2009

My friend bailed on our movie date tonight. As much as I’ve been dying to see Confessions of a Shoppaholic (LOVE the books!) I was looking forward to a chill night in.

When I realized I would actually have time to put together a thought out meal tonight, I spent the rest of the afternoon brainstorming what fun, great meal I could create when the contents of my fridge. I think I came up with a fun and tasty meal.

I refer to this as my Anti-Meatball Italian Sub. Nothing against meatballs, I was trying to be creative here. 🙂

The base was a good size piece of Jenna’s Oatmeal Bread. In place of the run of the mill meatballs, I had steamed Caulitflower and Brussel Sprouts on the bread, then some Pasta Sauce and a slice of Swiss Cheese.

This was PERFECT! It tasted just like a regular ole Meatball sub. It was a great fun twist that snuck some extra veggies into my meal.

Of course I really didn’t have a problem with veggies in my meal, on this side I had this overflowing salad of veggie goodness.

In my bowl was Spinach, Carrot, Snap Peas, Mushrooms, Tomato, Cabbage, Pecans, Sprouts and a drizzle of Orange Poppyseed Dressing.

This was a great fun meal, that came out even better then I had pictured in my head.

Dessert consisted of some Carmel Praline Crunch FroYo with a spoonful of Pecan Praline Granola on top.

This afternoon I had a Dark Chocolate Coconut Kashi bar for a mid afternoon snack.

Now I am going to take full advantage of this free time and veg out on the couch. Good night everyone!

February 18, 2009

Good Morning! After a late night out with co-workers (which may have involved a couple of drinks) I was pleasantly surprised how eager my body was able to get up this morning. I may not have exactly bounded out the door for my run (I really need to stop checking my e-mail before I run, more »
