A PJs Friday Night

by Meghann on January 20, 2012

It’s Friday night! Woo hoo!

I’m spending mine snuggled between my man and my pup – exactly where I want to be. 🙂

It was a busy day on the work front (planning for Healthy Living Summit kicked off this week!), so lunch was quick.   


The last of the black eye peas with a piece of honey oat toast. 🙂


I shared some carrots and almond butter with Maddie as a mid-afternoon snack. I think that girl loves her carrots more than I do.


Derek cracked open a bottle of wine around 6:00, I took that as a sign to help myself to a small glass. I think the bottle of wine on a Friday night should become a weekly thing. 😉


For dinner I started by roasting broccoli, yellow squash, radishes, and tempeh with a heavy mix of seasonings.


I tossed the roasted veggies with some whole wheat pasta


And a jar of tomato sauce with two heaping spoonfuls of hummus. The hummus added a nice creaminess to the pasta sauce and provided an interesting depth of flavor.


I topped it all with some jalapeno cheese and baked the dish at 375 for 15 minutes.




I’m not the biggest fan of pasta, but Derek LOVES it. He worked late this week, so I mainly made the meal as a treat for him. I had a small plate for dinner and picked at the veggies from what was left.


Derek and I went to Bo’s after dinner and got two small dipped cones to go in our PJs. Gotta love ice cream places with drive thru windows. 😉

Tomorrow is going to be non-stop, so I’m taking advantage of all this relaxing while I can.

Good Night!

Wine on Friday (WOF) is a good thing- means time to unwind and relax. Can’t wait for HLS even though it’s months away – remember I am happy to help with the event in any way I can. Have a great weekend !

I wish I could say I’m not the biggest pasta fan but I can’t even imagine not loving it and all it’s carby goodness 🙂

A drive-thru ice cream joint? We need to get some of those in the DC area! The most recent drive-thru’s to come this way are at Sbucks…

P.S. Hummus + tomato sauce sounds like a delic sauce! We made pasta last night and I added some grated parm directly to the pot [versus sprinkling on at the end] and it def added a creamy factor- gotta remember to do that more often!
