Happy Thursday. . . 1 day closer to Friday!
Thursday breakfast started with enjoying my caramel skim latte while catching up on The Voice. It seems like a really fun show. CeeLo Green is really funny.
Abby was trying to get some attention by bringing out some socks to entice me to play with her. It worked!
Lunch was a repeat of yesterday – salad and kashi granola bar.
After work, Scott and I took Abby for a nice 5 mile run in the sunny 51 degree weather.
We had a snack of blueberries after our run. . . yup right out of the colander!
While I was waiting for dinner to cook, I whipped up a batch of rice krispie bars. We had leftover marshmallows from Scott’s surprise birthday party in March that I needed to use.
Melt the margarine (3T), mix in 1 package of marshmallows.
Taste multiple times to make sure it tastes ok.
Mix with 6 cups of rice krispies.
Try to hold off on eating any bars until after dinner. . .
Dinner was awesome!
I also had help in the kitchen. ..
Pouting after ‘help’ didn’t lead to any treats or dropped food!
I roasted some broccoli and cauliflower in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. I lightly spinkled olive oil and kosher salt on them before putting them in the oven.
I used this olive oil that Laura brought me from California. Isn’t it pretty?
We also had mashed sweet potatoes, from Let’s Dish and chicken cordon bleu (frozen and bought on a previous trip to Sam’s Club).
Someone’s nose was very close to dinner!
Now off to taste the rice krispie bars! This is the first time I have ever made them with colored marshmallows (bought for the party, ‘cause I thought they would be more fun than boring white!).
Have a great night!
