Hi all! I apologize that there was no post last night. I was running errands like a mad woman and by the time dinner was over I was exhausted. Today you’ll get a recap of yesterday as well!
I woke up and took care of the pups. Then since it wasn’t snowing, I hit the gym and got my workout done. After my workout I came home and heated up breakfast.
I made a huge frittata for the week. This is so easy that I’m not sure why I don’t do this more often! The frittata contained:
- 1 dozen eggs
- About 4 cups spinach, chopped
- 1/2 a red onion
- 6 mini peppers, chopped
- 1/2C Coconut Milk (From the dairy aisle, not canned)
- 1/2 lb of ground breakfast sausage
I sauteed up the sausage, spinach, peppers, and onions. Then placed that in a greased casserole dish, poured the egg and coconut milk mixture on top and baked for half an hour. This will provide breakfast for Scott and I all week!
Fort Collins is under a snow watch and since it wasn’t snowing at the time, after breakfast I headed out to grocery shop. I had to do a big shopping trip and hit two stores, one of those being Costco.
This took me all day and I didn’t have time for lunch. I should have had a bar or snack with me in my purse but I was unprepared. I didn’t get home until going on 4pm and I quickly ate a pear as I was talking with my mom.
Since it was so late, I went ahead and heated up dinner. It just looks like a brown plate but I promise it was good!
Leftover pork roast that was turned into pulled pork tacos with a side of cauliflower rice. The tortilla is a Rudi’s gluten-free tortilla. It’s not grain free but I was OK with this. It’s actually a pretty good tortilla. It tasted fine and held up to be used as a taco. The rice was some that I picked up at Costco (my store sometimes carries cauliflower rice in the produce section) seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I kept things super simple!
I also had some herbal tea and few Belgian style cookies (that I got from TJ’s) as a snack last night while I watched Martha and Snoop! Scott’s home so I was able to get caught up on the shows.
The Christmas Balls episode was fantastic! The TJ’s cookies were just OK. I’m going to give them another shot though because I hate wasting money on food I don’t like. So we’ll see if they grow on me.
We finally got the snow that the forecast was calling for and we ended up with about 5 inches. The dogs are not happy!
I missed the gym this morning because I wasn’t sure if my little hobbit car would make it without getting stuck.
Breakfast frittata and frothy coffee (with coconut oil) to the rescue!
After breakfast, it was time to bundle up and start shoveling the walks and digging out the car.
Thankfully the snow wasn’t the wet heavy gross kind but the light fluffy kind which made things much easier! After shoveling the snow, since I was already dressed I headed out for a quick run.
Mmmm I love running in the cold and snow so much!
Came home and made some lunch which ended up being all orange.
Quick butternut squash soup and a side of some chicken tossed in buffalo sauce. The soup was very basic:
- 1 Bnut squash, cubed
- 1/2 Onion, chunked
- 3 Ribs Celery, chunked
Sauteed for about 5 minutes in olive oil then I added in about half a quart of turkey stock. Let that simmer and then I blended it all with the immersion blender. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I also tossed in about 1 TBSP of chipotle pepper + sauce.
Scott got our new Echo set up, do you have one? We’ve already been using it like crazy. What a handy tech thing to have! We also got one tree up and the lights on it. The rest of the decorations will probably go up this weekend. I can’t wait! I love the holidays and have trees and lights all over the house!
Dinner tonight was also easy, zoodles with Italian sausage, peppers, onions, and grape tomatoes. Everything got sauteed up in a skillet and I added a small splash of red wine to give a little bit of a sauce. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Now it’s time to hit the couch for a bit!
