Happy Hump Day all! Today’s post is going to be a little different ~ no boring daily eats pictures and ramblings, just yet. Well, maybe the ramblings….
I am pondering the concept of Daily Highlights ~ picking one thing I LOVED about my day (most likely a recipe or a meal or maybe somewhere fun we went) and sharing just that. I think I have slowly come to the realization that I am a pretty busy person with not as much time to blog as I want.
WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK???
I’d LOVE to hear you honest feedback on what you’d like to see on Danica’s Daily. Do you want to continue seeing my daily eats? Recipes? Something New?
I have some great recipes and tips ready to share with you all, but, today is all about the cool people and the FUN MAIL we had when we got home!
Bernie the Rabbit visited too while we were gone ~ too bad we missed him!
But, how AWESOME is this lunch bag :D
P.S. You can get your FREE lunch bag too ~ Click HERE to find out how!
I <3 Annie’s!
He made sure to leave us snacks ~ a big bag of Bunny Shaped Pretzels – Fun!
The last fun mail we had waiting when we got back was another delivery from the Schwan’s Live Smart Peeps. You all might remember that delicious tortellini they sent us before? They gave us another chance to have fun with their live smart products.
I picked everything for the “complete” meal!
Individually frozen CHICKEN! Each chicken breast is individually frozen so you can grab 1 or 2 or however many you want. Oh and it feeds 20 LOL.
Grilled up and topped with some POM Chipotle BBQ Sauce that I had in the freezer!
Mini Bow Tie Pasta ~ I admit it, it was the mini that sold me on it 😀
I LOVE that you can cook it quickly on the stove or microwave.
5 minutes later..
I turned our mini bow ties into quick, cold veggie pasta salad, however, I bet it would be awesome with some Low Fat Alfredo Sauce.
THE EASIEST VEGGIE PASTA SALAD YOU WILL EVER MAKE
2 Cups Mini Bow Tie & Veggie Pasta, cooked**
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive OIl
1/2 Tbsp Agave Nectar
1/2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Sprinkle of Dried Italian Seasoning (no more than 1/8 tsp)
Sea Salt & Pepper To taste
Combine the Balsamic through salt & pepper. Pour over pasta, chill and enjoy!
** You could easily make up your own pasta (1 cup) and add 1/2 a bag of steamed frozen veggies.
For not “really” cooking, I have to admit, this was pretty delicious and made The Husband pretty darn happy. 30 Minute Meals with REAL ingredients ~ AWESOME 🙂
I couldn’t resist the ice cream this time…I think it’s pretty cool that ice cream is part of their Live Smart collection :)
I LOVE Sherbert ~ 2 points of deliciousness!
Two more days until the weekend 😀 If only EVERY week went this fast, working might not be so bad. I kid 😀
Some day I’ll catch up on email….some day soon 😉 Don’t you all just wish they had a mark all as read feature for email and it would all go away like it does in Google Reader 😉
