Sunday

I didn’t quite cross off my to do list – I have grading to finish in the morning and I never made it to yoga – but it’s been a busy day!

Post breakfast I worked on school work and worked and worked and worked.  I ate lunch over a couple stages – dried mangosteen and a cherry starburst,

the last of the Kashi cheddar crackers (about a serving),

and a sliced Sonya apple.

Finally I packed up my stuff and headed out to my errands.

I spent forever making copies!  Plus, a teacher at school gave me her extra overhead (YAY!) so I had to get copies onto transparencies as well!  Using some gift certificates and coupons I saved $40 at Staples today – I spend so much money there I’m up to a Platinum rewards card!

On the way home we stopped into the pizza place for a late lunch, I got a cheesy broccoli calzone.

Which I paired with a handful of baby carrots.

Amid work, I also watched “The Great Mouse Detectives,” which put a smile on my face.  (fyi: we watched “Stardust” yesterday and A and I love-love-loved it!  Highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it yet).  During the movie I ate an oooold Dr. Pepper ice pop from the back of the freezer.

After more, more, more work it was time to start dinner.  I made salad as a first course while we cooked.

This was an iceberg blend base with dried craisins, wasabi peas, and homemade dressing.  For the dressing I shook the remains of a mustard bottle with evoo, apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of sugar.

A’s was the same, but bigger, and with nuts (geez that sounds dirty!).  His and hers –

For dinner we made Marinara Chicken.  I cooked four breasts (always skinless and boneless btw), seasoned with salt, pepper, oregano, and paprika, at 375* for 45minutes.  Later they were mixed with this stuff.

hpim1954

I cooked 1/2 the box of ww pasta according to the directions on the box.  In the last few minutes of cookie I stirred the chopped broccoli into the water.  After straining and putting the pasta-broc. mixture back into the pot I stirred in the tomato sauce.

Finally I topped my serving with 1/2 of a sliced chicken breast and some part skim mozzarella.

Delish!

I drank a virgin mojito with my dinner.

hpim1958

Made out of club soda and a stirrings mix.

It’s far too late, so I’ve got to split like a banana, have a good night!
