it's wednesday

last night went by too fast. i got home from work, cleaned out the food cupboards and the inside of the fridge, behind the fridge, the floor, etc. i re-organized the cabinets and now it seems much more organized... not necessarily spacious but less cluttered with that things-thrown-in-randomly look.

then i made myself another gigantuan salad with spinach, a chopped roasted sweet potato (one of the biggest i've ever seen), spicy thai flavoured shrimp (15... they are little), roasted almond slivers, baby tomatoes, frozen peas (cooked), and honey mustard dressing. sound weird? it was delicious!

and THEN i went down to the gym, did a quick 15 minute walk on the treadmill, did some upper and lower body strength training, sit-ups, and then 15 minutes on the stationary bike.

my pants are feeling tight today and i don't like it. it's also chilly willy nilly again and i don't like that. however, today is wednesday and date night and antm night which is alright with me. my bf is sick so i am going to make a nice warm dinner tonight: mrs. furious's turkey and meatball soup. i have the soup, noodles and turkey meatballs already so it should be really easy and quick. i will probably add more meatballs and noodles... maybe. it depends on how lonely they look in the pot. i have never made this before but hear wonderful things about it.

a quick thing about meatballs. i have been making my own turkey meatballs with ground turkey, egg, bread crumsb, some parm... rolling up that gross raw meat with my bare hands... all in the name of health. i thought these meat balls were the bomb diggity. last friday i walked home from work and passed an m & m's meat shop. i went in to see if they had turkey meatballs and they did, so i bought them. anyhoo, my bf must have said a thousand times how tasty these meatballs are—he never said anything nice about the homemade meatballs i SLAVED over. actually i'm sure i asked him how they were and he said, "good" but that is a big diff from raving on and on about them. so - no more will i put my hands in that meaty goo. i'm going to buy the m & m's meatballs and be done with it.

i forget what else i was going to talk about today. this morning i ran for 4 miles... it was not the most fun but i'm more than halfway to my goal of 15 miles per week. i've added a summer challenge sidebar. today's menu is:

1/2 banana with pb
1/3 fibre source bar

regular quaker instant oatmeal with flax
added 1/4 cup shreddies

source yogurt

cinnamon spice oatmeal with pumpkin and 1/4 cup shreddies
sugar snap peas with hummus

turkey meatball soup
whole wheat roll

Too funny about the meatballs :P. At least you don't have to touch any more raw meat!

Enjoy your date night!

I heart me some bomb diggity meatballs!

I love all Mrs. F's recipes. I am making her tuna casserole tonight with broccoli.

that soup IS heaven. My boyfriend does things like that too to me. BOO. hahaha. But at least now you dont have to hand make them right?

Erin said...

I have made that soup, and it is really good, but gets really really thick. You might want to add some extra water when you are done. It is delicious!

I LOVE M&M turkey meatballs...I use them for EVERYTHING (I like them WAY better than the beef ones!) boo that he didn't rave over the homemade ones though!

YAY For date night AND ANTM!

Jenn said...

meatballs sound good - and even better when someone else is making them.
your salad sounds fantastic too!!!
I know what you mean about nights going by too fast. I feel like I never have enough time to get everything done...

I couldn't agree more, no way in hell am I bothering with making meatballs anymore either, too much work for too little pay. I like the PC blue menu Italian style and hubby likes their swedish style and as back up we go for m&m

Lex said...

Hahaha good ol' m&m. When in doubt, always check m&m hahah
My boyfriend is the same way. Unless he sees me cooking and taking a lot of time to do something from scratch, he'll make a comment, but if not, then it's just 'good'.

See you mention "fibre source" bars, what are those? If you have any info I'd love to see...
