This greek salad from the Premier Diner Friday night before the blizzard hit. And dipping those French fries you see (the crispest ones of course) into the dressing? Perfection.
Saturday’s treadmill run was tough but coming home to my favorite post run oatmeal in a jar made it worth it.
I loved being snowed in after my run Saturday. I drank my coffee from my favorite Starbucks cup and wore my Butter sweatpants with my comfy tie-dyed sweatshirt all day long – without a bra on < – you needed to know that.
I did bake and cook as planned and one of my favorites from the weekend was the granola cookie wedge recipe that I mentioned in Friday’s post.
It did not hold together like I thought it would but it tasted great! I liked it crumbly and I even liked the peanut m&m’s.
All we had were peanut m&ms in the house so I used them to make my son happy. I never liked peanut m&m’s, in fact, I do not like any type of nut in my chocolate. However, once this granola cookie was baked up, I actually found some appreciation for the peanut m&m’s although they will never be my first choice and certainly don’t make my top 5 favorite m&m’s list.
- plain m&m’s
- crispy m&m’s
- peanut butter m&m’s
- pretzel m&m’s
- dark chocolate m&m’s
In honor of National Peanut Butter Day yesterday (and because after shoveling I was still not leaving the house) I made these chocolate peanut butter protein bites using Mighty Maple Peanut Butter. So good!
Least Favorite Weekend Moment:
Seeing my car Sunday morning.
The highlight of my blizzard experience:
Realizing that my son is no longer the little boy who wakes up early creating the need for 304 entertaining activities before 10:00 am.
As much as I don’t like to see my baby growing up, young children combined with a blizzard take away the fun of a lazy snow day and give new meaning to cabin fever.
Not anymore though! The benefit of having a 12-year-old is that he didn’t come out of his room on Saturday until NOON and close to NOON on Sunday as well.
He was half way enjoyable too…until he tried to get me to put a hat on my head (just try my hat on mom!) that was filled with snow.
Since I know him and his personality for 12 years, I know better than to put any hat he hands me on my head.
Time for a treadmill run, have a great day! 🙂blizzard weekend favorites #snow #blizzard #weekend #running #peanutbutter #mmschocolate #fitfluential Click To Tweet
