Unfortunately for the guys we did not end up dining at Red Robin last night. When we got there it was PACKED and the wait was 2 hours. If D wasn't with us then the wait wouldn't have mattered but I didn't want to feed him at an hour that he is usually sleeping. We all headed to a TGI Fridays - I hate chain restaurants & last night proved that even more. If we weren't out with friends then Charlie and I would have opted for a better place. I was hoping to get a decent salad but they only had 4 choices - 3 of them containing something fried. I opted for the house salad which was as lame as it can get - I didn't even eat it - that is the reason for the lack of photo. It really was only 4 grape tomatoes, 3 cuke slices, shredded carrots and lettuce - pretty exciting. Thankfully I planned for this sort of dilemma - I had 2 afternoon snacks - one being around 4:45 because I knew we would be eating later than my usual time.
My first snack was 1/2 up Greek yogurt, TJ's High Fiber cereal and apple butter.
Snack #2 an Arnold Sandwich Thin with 1/2 tablespoon PB and 1/2 tablespoon sunflower seed butter.
Of course I came home and whipped up the quickest meal possible - I was starving by that point. A mess - yes, shocking I am sure. I mixed 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, canned pumpkin, unsweetened applesauce, Kashi GoLean, cranberry apple butter and sunflower seed butter. This totally satisfied the empty spot in my tummy.
This morning I made oatmeal again - see once I find something that works I have a hard time veering from it. I am loving the combo of 1/4 cup oats, 1/2 a banana, 1/2 cup pumpkin, Cinnamon Puffins and sunflower seed butter. The dairy portion had to be 1/2 cup Greek yogurt - I am all out of cottage cheese. I actually prefer cottage cheese, it makes a much thicker bowl of oats.
I am up a bit early due to the fact that we set our clocks back. It was nice to wake up and see the sun but that means it will just be darker earlier in the day : ( I am sure going to miss the long days of summer sunlight.
I don't know what we are doing today - I think we might try to get out for a little family adventure. My huz has tomorrow off - we have dentist appointments. I LOVE to got to the dentist and get my teeth cleaned.
Enjoy your day.
