Sunny Sunday

Today was a beautiful day.
Hot, yes, but there was a slight breeze that allowed me to relax in the sun for quite a while this afternoon. Oh it was another joyous lazy day.

The day started off with some overnight oats. The concoction contained 1/2 c. rolled oats, 1/2 c. light and fit yogurt, dash of cinnamon. Then this morning I topped it with blackberries and some warm blackberry jam that I heated up in the microwave. The jam was a nice finishing touch. I find I like to put a warm topping on my cold oats.

The morning was spent outside being lazy and getting some stuff done around the house. Why does laundry never end? Around 10:30 my stomach was growling for some reason so had a snack. And since I am obsessed with banana softserve I had that topped with the few strawberries I had left.

Today I added peanut butter in with the bananas and it really tasted like peanut butter ice cream! Oh I love recreating food to a more healthy version :) A while later it was time for lunch. I'd been wanting to try the Front Burner's Black Bean burger recipe so I made one for lunch today. I pretty much followed the recipe and baked them in the oven for about 40 min at 300F. I topped it with a slice of american cheese, ketchup, and spicy mustard. It was pretty good.

Along with my burger I had a small salad with greens, carrots, cucumbers, dried cranberries, feta, pepitas, and balsalmic vinaigrette.

Then it was time to do a little shopping. I am always in the mood to shop :) After being out and about for a couple hours I worked up an appetite for dinner. Dinner was just some whole wheat pasta topped with some vodka sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Simple, yet satisfying. Now the only plans on my agenda for the rest of the night are to relax, and probably eat another piece of birthday cake, because honestly who can resist funfetti cake that is sitting on your counter??
