We were up early with the girls as it's been super windy, had to make sure that their coop stayed upright after last two wind-induced issues. All was well. I did some stretching outdoors in the warm wind, my favorite!!:) As it drizzled, it was wonderful. Up since 430a.6 hours after bfast and we are finally having lunch!:)
Lunch: hubby made steak & we are having dressing leftovers, salad w/onions & poppyseed dressing. I am also having cranberry sauce. No way I'll eat all this so more like lunch and a part of dinner for me:)Snack: ~2/3c of butter almond ice cream (200cals:)Lunch: 3/4 peeled cucumber w/ poppyseed dressing, leftover dressing & cranberry sauce.
Not feeling the greatest today, head is achy. Gonna move my body some, see if that helps.Dinner: Hubby made bbq chicken thighs in the skillet & rice, I added French green beans because I needed something green in my bowl and didn't want the lettuce to wilt next to hot food(plus didn't want lettuce right now:)Lunch: rice, hamburger patty, 1Tbsp salsa, refried beans, big pinch of cheese.Dinner: gf French toast!:)Late night dinner, going to be up really late: cucumber salad, 3eggs, and small portion of sausage w/onions. Protein fix met. I'm happy!:)Brunch: sausage & shrimp étouffée + roasted orange peppers & corn.
(Étouffée ingredients: broccoli, onions, red potatoes, fire roasted tomatoes, precooked rice, shrimp, sausage, garlic+spices)
Recipe of my own. It's sooo yum!!:)Dinner: leftover étouffée, corn, peppers, topped w/3 fried eggsSnack: hubby got full meal, I declined a whole one but got sweet potato fries. :). Super positive: I didn't get ice cream or a milkshake and I REALLY wanted it!:)
