Lately we've been trying to eat healthier/diet. It's usually pretty easy going during the week, but weekends can be a bit of a struggle, but then we just try to compensate with some outdoor activities like long walks with Cheese or yard work. Friday night started out right with a little grilling out...
We made homemade "burrito bowls" though they were more like fajita bowls. Cilantro-lime quinoa with sauteed and seasoned onions and peppers, and seasoned and grilled chicken breast. It was pretty easy and very tasty, I mean, I didn't even really miss the cheese, black beans, or salsa I usually get on my Chipotle burrito bowls. I marinaded the onions and peppers overnight in lime juice and fajita seasoning and they turned out really well, even though I overcooked them a bit.
Cheese thought Antoine's burrito bowl looked/smelled so delicious that he need to try it. He failed!
Saturday morning started with me trapped under this guy on the couch while Antoine whipped us up a killer breakfast! He really is the king of breakfast!
Voila, a delicious hash; home fried potatoes and onions with garlic, thick cut bacon, eggs overhard (because that's how I like 'em), a little Parmesan cheese and some ketchup. Yum! So good and so filling! It held us over until about 4pm! Afterwards we took Cheese for a 5-mile walk and the weather was so beautiful! Then we ran to Crafty Supermarket (where we picked up this kick-ass pillow) and ran some errands!
Ahh, and here's where the weekends turn bad...ice cream! I love ice cream so much and it really is just the epitome of summer to me! This happened to be our first trip to Hold the Nuts, our favorite soft serve spot, of the season. I got a twist cone dipped in peanut butter and Antoine got vanilla with krunch kote!
Sunday was an equally beautiful day, I couldn't resist taking another photo of the insanely pretty dogwood across the street. We started the day off by sleeping in and then ran some errands and did a bunch of yard work, although it feels like we didn't even make a dent since we've got so much to do.
Cheese was our yard work supervisor. The job duties include eating cat poop, whining, chewing on sticks, rolling around like a crazy dog, and playing with a tennis ball. It's a pretty exhausting job though.
That was our weekend! Today I'm extremely sore and very tired, I'm so ready for a vacation. The end of May can't come soon enough!
