Mornin’ – TFIG TGIF!
I had a very busy evening last night that included finishing up some cookies for a wedding shower this weekend (loved how they turned out – I will show you on Monday because I think the bride might be reading!) then attended my brother’s last Immersion service at his church.
He has led a worship service on Thursday nights, called Immersion, for people in their 20s for the last four years or so, and the program came to a close last night. It was sad, but also a celebration!
At any rate, I made time for a quick – literally 5 minute – BBQ dinner in between all the madness!
First I boiled some Jennie-O Turkey Brats with a sliced onion and two Corona’s ( 8) ) until they were cooked through. A couple minutes on a hot, flat-top skillet and they were golden brown. Honestly – I cannot taste the difference between a turkey brat and a real one. The only thing missing is the grease and that, I can surely do without.
I steamed a bag of fresh broccoli in the microwave,
and warmed some Bush’s Vegetarian Baked Beans on the stovetop.
It’s a tough job, but some one’s got to do it!
Ben went the more manly route and created a Beanwurst (beans + bratwurst) and a Bratup (bratwurst + ketchup) for his dinner!
I mean!!! Oh, men.
I woke up to dark, grey skies, but my Mom and I decided to go for our morning walk anyways. We made it back just before the thunder started rumbling, the lightening started flashing and the rain started coming down in SHEETS! We had ourselves an honest to God thunderstorm that’s still raging!
Breakfast reflected the mood, as I had a warm and comforting Egg & Cheese Bagel.
Well, bagel thin, if you want to get technical.
I just scrambled up some egg whites and hot sauce, then placed them on top of a toasted bagel thin and a slice of cheddar cheese.
Served with a Cultural Revolution Peach Yogurt.
The jury’s still out on this yogurt. My blueberry yogwas soooo tangy and sour, I couldn’t decide if I loved it, or hated it. And I wish it had more protein. I think my final decision will be made with this baby. I’ll let ya’ know!
Today’s lunch is a luxurious three course meal!
Zee appetizer – Cottage Cheese & Cantaloupe.
I just scoop out the melon with a spoon – it is SO much more fun and easy to make it this way. Then you don’t have to fuss with cutting it all up, etc!
I will be filling said ‘loupe with this creamy, cottage cheese. I find that people either love or hate cc – where do you stand? I could eat it every single day!
Zee entree – Spinach Salad.
That’s some torn baby spinach, carrot chips and sliced almonds.
I finally got my greens!
Zee dessert – Pink Lady Apple!
Basically, when I estimated the calories in my lunch, the ENTIRE thing clocked in for less calories than this sucker – a McDonalds Quarter Pounder with Cheese. SUCKER!!!!!!!! Ahem, excuse me. That just fires me up! In a good way!
In other news, I am almost in a state of panic because I have zero things to do this weekend. How did this happen?! What will I do with myself?!
No matter what, I must make a trip to my local Tropical Sno stand. Do you have one of those where you live? It’s basically a little hut/stand that sells sno cone type desserts, except instead of crunchy ice, it’s basically creamy, melty snow. BOMB!
Have wonderful day guys!
Do you count calories? Why or why not?
