Today was the perfect day to get out to the Farmer’s Market. I scored some fantastic veggies ~ Heirloom Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Squash, Pluots and both Red & Black GRAPES. In addition to all the fruit/veggie/hummus samples I had at the market, I had leftover POM Chicken, brown rice and roasted green beans for lunch. I actually only managed to eat all the green beans and rice plus about 1/3 of the chicken before I was full. I thought of finishing but figured it would be better to be “mindful” and listen to my body.
This afternoon I found TWO ways to ruin my appetite for dinner. I had a slice of the Cinnamon Swirl bread that I picked up for my co-worker at the market. Seriously….who can resist this and say no.
Then, when I got home I was super excited to share the Lemon Herb Pita Chips and Hummus with The Husband. He doesn’t do pita bread, but, he LOVES pita chips. These chips are amazing. I had two by themselves and three dipped in hummus.
I LOVE The Hummus Guy’s hummus. This is the same person who makes the Artichoke Hummus and the Black Bean Chipotle Hummus. It has fantastic nutritionals, but, I seriously need to make my own to save $$. The cool part ~ The Husband LOVED it (he said he always though hummus was bad because I eat it and that means it’s healthy LOL)
At this point, I was pretty much NOT hungry at all. However, I was planning on making up a bunch of food for The Husband tonight because he will be asleep by the time I get home tomorrow. In my quest to clear out the pantry (get rid of the old because the new pantry is almost ready!!!), I decided to make a new to me Trader Joe’s Cheddar Cheese Potatoes.
Eh…not too bad on the nutritionals, but, the ingredient least can be improved…..
I LOVE that the potatoes look like potato chips (nope they don’t taste like them – The Husband popped one and couldn’t bite it LOL!)
All cooked up and cheesy looking. The Husband was sure I was trying to make him eat sweet potatoes (he doesn’t like them at all) LOL. I LOVED these potatoes – they remind me of growing up. The Husband thought they were ok, but, he said he liked my homemade healthy version better LOL.
While the potatoes cooked, I grilled and grilled and grilled. Don’t worry, this isn’t all for me!
LEAN, BBQ Pork Loin Boneless Ribs
And the ONLY Thing I cannot get The Husband to give up ~ Hot Links (I think it’s a guy thing!)
I also grilled up some corn on the cobb and sliced up one of these beautiful heirloom tomatoes for our veggies.
Seasoned with a little sea salt & pepper ~ So good! I think I could have eaten the entire tomato myself.
Plus 1 piece of BBQ chicken
And a serving of Cheesy Cheddar Potatoes….I might have snuck another bite as I put them away.
I wasn’t super hungry but knew I’d wake up starving if I didn’t eat.
Does anyone want to make any guesses on how long it takes The Husband to eat all that meat?! He was seriously loving it all and already planning out his lunch/dinner tomorrow. I am thinking he will have it all gone by Thursday if not sooner. 🙂
I am off to read, relax and get caught up on the sleep I missed out on last night. That is one advantage to The Husband going to bed early….I tend to as well.
