And this is no ordinary Wednesday ~ this is the day when I divulge all the treats I indulge in when my hubby is away. You know what they say, "when Derek's away, his wifey will play"....with food that is! :-) In the old days, all I would have been able to post here is pot after pot of Kraft Dinner with weiners, but thankfully I've evolved and become a little more creative in my eats!
I like to pick and munch all day long when I have no one's schedule but my own to worry about. This weekend was no different. I thoroughly enjoyed my down time, but I was really glad when Derek got home, so I could get back into a routine.
Check out all the good things I indulged in over the weekend.
Veggie Pizza. I wasn't kidding when I said I'd have this for breakfast, lunch & dinner!
Other breakies included iced coffee and fresh strawberries.
When I wasn't eating pizza for lunch, I was having a tomato pesto sandwich.
If you haven't tried this, go and make it right now! It is one of my all-time favourite sandwiches!
For dinner, when I wasn't eating pizza ;-) hehe, I was having a salsa bean burger on a thin
bun, with a side of stirfried broccoli with garlic and balsamic.
Stay tuned, bean burger recipe to come tomorrow and I promise you that it is dee-eelish!
Can you tell I'm lovin' these whole grain thin buns?
And of course, I can't forget all my snacks. They are an absolute must for a home alone weekend!
Strawberries dipped in dark chocolate
Brown rice chips - sweet chili flavour
Red Wine ~ of course!
...and last, but not least, my lonely little peanut butter blondie.
Whew! Thank goodness I'm not home alone every night or I'd be in some serious trouble! I love to indulge and enjoy my down time, but it always feels great to get back to my healthy oats and salads full of greens.
