Happy Monday night everyone! I hope we all made it through our Mondays okay and everyone is ready for some relaxation & great TV tonight (ehh hmmm XOXO 😉 )
I also want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments on the 100 cal Carrot, Pear, Raisin bread recipe! P.S. I have been storing it in the fridge so it is cold and dense and deelish – I like to eat my sweet type breads cold – call me crazy?!
You guys rock 🙂 And if any of you decide to make it, please let me know how it turns out (inquiring minds…!) Any modifications to the recipe are much welcomed as well, I love to hear new ideas!
Onto the the exercisin’ – hey, girl’s gotta get her workout on after a weekend of vino indulgence did I say that? to start off the week on the right foot 😛
But before that happened… after getting home from work I immediately popped the taters into the oven at 375F for 45 min so they would be ready for me after my workout. I also put the chicken in some of the 890 tons of BBQ sauce we have left (outta control, but so good!) to marinate for a bit.
You think I’m kidding, this sucker has 120 2 tbslp servings haha thanks again World Market for the best $3.99 deal evah!
It was a yoga day for me today, considering I have plans to hit up a cardio AND kickboxing class later in the week – thankful for a mid-week day off work! – and didn’t want to cardio overload (hello hunger outta control).
I decided to switch things up a bit tonight
- tried a new yoga sesh on ExerciseTV: Tom Morley’s Thighs, Hips & Buns yoga 🙂 pretty good for 21 minutes!
- Ab Ripperof deathX courtesy of The Man’s P90X – holy moley just as hard as last time!
It was a great “switch up” of the Monday routine 🙂
After my workout with Tom (he’s pretty rustically cute btw 😉 sorry honey, I ❤ U!) I got started on some dinner.
On the menu in our house tonight:
- BBQ chicken tenders
- Baked sweet potatoes w/ brown sugar & cinnamon
- Crunchy apple salad
First up was taking the sweet potatoes outta the oven, they had cooked up perfectly while I was workin’ out!
Then I prepped the salad, here’s what went in the sweet & savory mix
Does anyone else buy whole hearts of romaine instead of the pre-chopped bagged lettuce? If not, I highly suggest you do, I got this romaine for $1.49 and it will make about 3-4 large salads for the both of us…. VS. bagged salad that is like $3 a pop and makes 2-3 measley salads if you’re lucky!
Served with “his and hers” dressing!
Then I popped the marinating BBQ chicken into the oven at 375F for about 10-15 minutes until it was done (covered with foil most of the time to keep moist).
See how juicyyyyy it turned out!
Also fancied up the sweet potatoes with help of these guys
Stuck ’em in the oven with the chicken for a few minutes, and voila!
Dinner is served 🙂
Perfect Monday meal! Easy, healthy and delicious 🙂
Before I go, has anyone ever tried one of these suckers? Had one for a snack today and it was really pretty darn freakin’ tastyyyyy 🙂
Okay friends, time to get to some more carrotcake bread w/ cream cheese and snuggle up for Gossip Girl!
Hope everyone has a fantabulous evening 🙂
