Tasty Smoothie

4 Oct

I love Sundays. It’s a relaxing, and a crazy day at the same time. I wake up, hit the gym for Body pump and Trekking, come home, relax for a bit, then hit the food store and do what ever else I need to get done (cleaning, cooking, shopping!)

After my workout, I need something yummy and fill me to get me going.

Today I made a fabulous smoothie.


I combined:

  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • ice
  • 1 sliced peach
  • 1 tsp flax seed
  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  • 2 spoon fulls of cereal

I topped it off with a little more cereal!!

I also had a cup of tea.


Tonight I am going to make a nice dinner for my boyfriend and I. Yesterday we were in a car accident. We were driving in the poring rain and someone stopped short in front of us on the highway. We were able to stop just in time, ut the car be hind us didn’t stop. Our car was crunched in between two SUVs. Pat just got his car a few months ago and its the first time he has ever had a new car.  He is taking it well (if that was my car, I would be flipping).

So now, the sad little Hyundai is sitting in our driveway waiting to be fixed.

Tonight my boyfriend and I went to an amazing Japanese restaurant, Sake. I drive by this place everyday and have never been there.  It is locate on a main highway and, from the outside doesn’t look like much. I was searching online for good restaurants to go to (I am so tired of our usually rotation). I found that Sake had a bunch of positive reviews. When my boyfriend (A meat and potatoes kinda guy) said he would try it, I said “let’s go!” before he could change his mind.

When we got there, the atmospheric  was extremely pleasant, boasting traditional Japanese decor. I loved it the minute I walked in. They had a great sushi menu, and a traditional japanese menu for anyone weary of sushi. My boyfriend ordered the stake, which came with miso soup and salad, and I got the steamed salmon topped with scallions in a light soy sauce. My meal also came with miso soup and salad. The meals were unbelievable flavorful and delicious!!

I wanted to try the sushi, it looked wonderful, but I am still a little weary of all that raw food, and don’t relay know how to order it. I’m going to have to do some Sushi research before I go back!

Not to mention, the mai tais are fresh, sweet, strong and absolutely delicious. (We each had 2 🙂 )

overall, this was one of the best dinners I have had in along time forever!

I forgot my camera so I don’t have any pictures, you’ll just have to take my word for it! Delectable!

Pumpkin and Spice, and Everything Nice

1 Oct

Fall is officially here! To kick of the season I though it was appropriate to have some nice heart soup.  I made…. I opened a jar of Sierra Rica’s Spice Pumpkin soup for the occasion. I have never had this soup before and was very happy with it. Unlike most soups, it doesn’t come in a can, and it isn’t the watered down version of what is displayed on the package. This soup comes in a jar so you can see what you are getting. All  I needed to do was warm the soup up, top it with a little mozzarella cheese, chopped almonds and a little fresh basil and dinner was served! It was everything a good “hearty” soup should be, thick, flavor full, and delicious.


I had half of a grill cheese sandwich too (great for dipping) but I burnt the heck out of it and didn’t want to ruin this beautiful picture!
