It’s another tie for the best meal of the day. I knew work was going to be busy again, so I got up a little extra early to make a special little breakfast. For dinner, I made a delicious dish that was unsurprisingly amazing. So I can’t chose between the 2. Don’t make me, ok?
BEST MEAL OF THE DAY – PART I
What you see is 1 slice of Arnold’s double fiber whole wheat bread, toasted, spread with ricotta cheese, 2 prunes, pecans and a tsp of maple syrup. To die for! I had some amazing fresh blueberries on the side. These have seriously been the best blueberries I’ve ever had (they were on sale 2 for 1, but we’re still almost out )
BEST MEAL OF THE DAY – PART II
I love love love scallops, but I think this is the first time I’ve ever made them! Why you ask? Well for some reason my husband thought he wasn’t crazy for scallops even though he usually loves them at restaurants. Maybe he secretly didn’t trust my scallop making skills 😆 Well, I proved him wrong tonight. I used this recipe from Cooking Light as the base, but didn’t actually make the bay-scented butter (just used Smart Balance butter instead – a little less than the recipe asked for). I also These were SO good! Btw, I don’t know if Cooking Light was planning on serving this to birds but 1 serving is definitely not enough for a person. 😉 I made probably about 7-servings worth according to them, and I ate about 30% of it. Of course I could eat even more but this way I get to have leftovers! 😀
On the side, I had some trusty parmesan brussels sprouts (this is the only way I make brussels sprouts because they are amazingly delicious and take less than 10 minutes as opposed to baking which takes more like 30-40 minutes) + 1/2 cup of brown rice. Great dinner!
There was also another unphotographed cookie that jumped in my mouth before I knew what happened. It’s ok, I was a good girl all day! 😀
Total calories for the day: right around 1650
By the way, I finished my project at work today! It was another busy day, but I did it – it’s done!! I was/am so happy about it. My boss was very appreciative, so I feel great! Yay!
Re: gym, I still haven’t gone and now dinner is sitting like a rock in my stomach (thank god I didn’t go back for more!) so I don’t know what’s going to happen with that. I know I definitely will use my ab slide before bed. Gotta get those sexy six pack abs!!
