First up last night’s dessert:
I think pictures say it all, but just in case you don’t know what you’re seeing you should know that it is Chocolate Cover Cherries. I pitted cherries last night, placed them in foil pouch with chocolate, baked at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, then served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was a sweet little treat for a weekend of hard work.
Tonight for dinner I made a quick meal so Matt could get a few things done in the kitchen before it gets to late. I went with a black bean burger on a toasted Ezekiel Muffin. Topped with lettuce, tomato, reduced fat cheese and brown mustard. Simply perfect with a bean salad on the side.
Despite being prepared for the week with food options, we did not make it to the gym. The kitchen keeps calling our name and since we both are very anxious to keep it moving along, it’s hard to ignore. I think we have found the balance in our lack of gym time by making smart food choices and keeping active around the house instead of watching TV all night. Gym time will happen again, it just wasn’t today. However tomorrow I am going to go for a run, the first since the half!!!
