The move is over.
I hope we stay in this house for a very, very long time.
We’ve found places for about 75% of our belongings. We’ve hooked up the Wii. We’ve even had a dinner party! It feels like home.
Things left to do: organize Vegas’ closet, put together the guest bed, and spend some quality time a Bed, Bath, & Beyond. You guys think Target is bad??? BBB slays me.
Oh, and remember when I said we order EVERYTHING on Amazon? Not kidding…
I experimented with Heather’s Cinnamon Cake Batter Oatmeal recipe. It is fabulously creamy. I can’t believe I’ve never thought to steam my oats a bit post-cooking!
Pssssst… she’s having a giveaway for some oats!
Cinnamon Roll Cake Batter Oats. Breakfast like whoa. Followed @heathermcclees super easy recipe – made with @farmer_direct oats (which she has a giveaway for!!!), @growingnaturals vanilla protein, and hemp milk. Oats are the perfect way to start the week after a fantastic treat day Sunday. Healthy, simple, and feels like it resets my body. I also added blueberries. I love they way they juice up and burst in your mouth when they're warm. I'm going to be thinking about this one for days.
Having gotten settled(ish), I’m committed to regular workouts, pushing myself with a trainer, and eating at home. I’m also not drinking during the week… which is a big change. I heart San Diego beers. And wine.
But that’s not the point of this snack. The point is, I had a great workout did some cardio, and was starving. So Quest.
Salad with Sizzlefish shrimp, arugula, spinach, cucumbers, tomato, avocado, and peach-mango salsa (<– so good!).
Literally took 8 mins to make. I’m eternally grateful for pre-portioned Sizzlefishes.
I revisited an old favorite cookie recipe: Sugar-Free Chocolate Avocado Cookies. Vegas still doesn’t know the “secret” ingredient. 😉
This was one epic brinner. We’ve also eaten this for a savory breakfast too. It’s good any time of day.
For the aforementioned dinner party, I made a ton of meatballs. We had a bunch leftover, along with homemade tomato sauce and half a baguette. Why not try a savory French toast?
And, get this… Vegas loved it! I think she surprised herself. 🙂
Savory French Toast:
- Day-old baguette
- Garlic and herb spice blend
Slice baguette into ~1/4 inch thick slices.
In a shallow bowl or Pyrex, whisk together the eggs, milk, and herbs. Soak bread slices in the mix until softened. Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a pan over medium heat.
Place soaked bread slices the pan and cook just like you would French toast, flipping half way through.
Assemble with your favorite toppings. I used meatballs, tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, and diced avocado.
Annnnnd now I have to get my knee shot up on Friday and back to being an invalid for a bit. Boo.
Are you a Quest bar fan? What’s your favorite flavor? The lemon is oddly addicting.
Have you ever tried savory French Toast? I loved my hummus version too!
