Staycation Day #1 Ends Early

I guess staycations really wear you out because I was in bed by 10:30, and the hubski fell asleep in the movie chairs downstairs by 9:30! baha!

Let me back up. This could have been from the copious amount of food we ate throughout the night.

We wanted something quick and easy for dinner, but didn’t want to eat out or order in since we did that last night. I remembered I had Annie’s Homegrown Mac and Cheese

and then thought of pairing it with some chicken and Annie’s Homegrown BBQ sauce!

First I put some rub on the chicken:

Plopped it in the oven for a bit, then brushed it with the goods:

Meanwhile, I started on the Mac n Cheese.

I drained it in this cute little Tupperware colander (my SIL sells it, people.) It starts out like this:

And then pops out to this!

It’s super great for storage 😀

While cooking, I enjoyed some Tazo AWAKE tea, and saw this beautiful rainbow!

I heated up some frozen veggies, and voila~ we had a meal.

Not so fast…adding to our meal was some hemp bread + this little heavenly ingredient:

Holy now my favorite nut butter.

Oh man! was this stuff good. And it’s Maranatha’s! Yum topia, seriously.

The dinner ended up splendid, even though it was super easy to make and didn’t require much culinary talent. However, next time, I have to say, I’ll add less milk to the cheese mixture in the mac n cheese. The instructed amount left it a little too runny.

After we took Niko for a walk around the neighborhood (at an extremely leisurely pace,) we were so caught up in our staycation celebration, that we (yes, he helped) decided to end my dessert-less week a night early, and get some froyo.

Hey…looking at that, b It had vanilla fro yo, frozen strawberries, bananas, and coconut. It tasted like an island dream 😉

So a couple OTH eppies later and we were both ready for bed. Oh well, gotta love that sleep stuff 😉

Now I’m off to a body pump class (haven’t done this in weeks, yikes!) with my girl Heidi. I had the best small breakfast concoction to give me a little fuel for it.

It was just a frozen banana, 1.5 T of choc. almond butter, ice, and stevia! It’s seriously delicious. And since I plan on doing a little cardio after class, I needed something in my body to give me some fuel.
What’s your favorite class at your gym/past gyms? I’d have to say my favorite was a yoga class at my old gym. The instructor made it a tough vinyasa class, and nothing else. Now they all seem to try yogalates or a fusion of something and another.
