Sorry for the absence. Craig and I spent the weekend camping, so I was unable to blog.
Today has been pretty uneventful. I’ve spent the day cleaning, running, doing errands, and completing a little bit of baking.
My trip to the grocery store did yield these products for $25.88 with a few decent deals for the day.
– Blueberries – 4 pounds for $4.98
– Vine-ripened tomatoes – $1.48/lb.
– Kiwi 2/$1 (I remember when they used to be 4/$1 though!!)
– Kashi Cereal, Cookies, and Crackers – $2 each (on sale 2/$6 then a $1 coupon for each one)
For lunch I had a pita pizza along with some crisp carrots and oven-roasted zucchini and yellow squash. The pita pizzas are so quick and easy to make–and of course delicious!!
I topped a piece of pita bread with:
– ready-made pizza sauce
– dried basil and oregano
– one half had fresh spinach and fresh tomatoes
– shredded mozzarella cheese
Bake at 400 degrees until cheese is melted–probably about 5-7 minutes.
For dessert, I tried one of the Kashi Happy Trail Mix Cookies.
I wasn’t too impressed by them. The consistency was chewy and I did like all of the different ingredients, but the taste was only mediocre. They definitely don’t compare to anything homemade!!
The ingredient’s list might be a little lengthy, but at least I can pronounce all of the ingredients.
Next it was time to bake some more muffins since all of the Whole Grain Glory Muffins vanished over the weekend. (No, I did not eat them all, I made sure to share!!)
I wanted to make something with the blueberries I had just purchased, so I whipped up some Blueberry Banana Muffins.
I love these muffins–so flavorful and healthy!!
Look at those juicy blueberries just waiting to be eaten.
This weekend I did give my nails a fresh coat of nail polish.
I love the fun names they come up with!!
