HIIT on treadmill – Check
Lifting – Check
Yardwork – Check
Garage Cleaned – (BONUS!) Check
Lunch – Check!!!
I worked my butt off this morning! 30 minutes on the treadmill with a max speed of 7:30 m/m and a max incline of 8%. Followed by 15 minutes of heavy lifting (shoulders and back) and 20 pullup/chinups. Peyton is a really good photographer for 4 year old!
My muscle munchkins:
After that, we went outside to start in the yard and Officer M started on the gutters. Kids are great. Free slave labor!
Lunch today had to include the squash, zucchini and eggplant in the fridge. Bonus points if I got rid of the 1/2 hothouse tomato in there too. So it was decided:
Grilled Vegetable Lasagna
Summer squash 450 grams
Eggplant, fresh, 500 grams
Hood Fat Free Cottage Cheese, 1/2 cup (Officer M is the only Italian I know who doesn’t like ricotta!)
Colonna Parmesan and Romano Grated Cheese, 1/3 c
Red Ripe Tomatoes, 4 slices 1/2″ thick
Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Italian Blend, 1/3 c
Canola Oil Cooking spray, 0.5 gram(s)
Barilla – Marinara Sauce, 1/2 c
Garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasoning, fresh basil – all to taste.
(Sorry for the odd measurements on the veggies, that was what I had. The stats are based on this)
Slice and grill your veggies ahead of time. This will cut down on the amount of liquid in the lasagna pan. I sprayed them with some canola cooking spray and gave ’em a hit of italian seasoning, garlic and onion powder:
Leave them to cool: (like the bowl?)
Go clean your garage. Take a break after an hour. Mix together cottage cheese, parmesan, basil and spices:
In a baking dish (9×9 would work fine, but I like my little casserole jobby) spread some sauce and start layering!
Just for reference: Sauce, veggies, cheese mixture, veggies, sauce, small sprinkle of parmesan, tomato, shredded cheese and basil. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until warm and gooey!

I’m almost out of zucchini 😦 I have one freakishly large one left. I’m saving it for something special. I don’t know what that is yet…..
I’m off to get the kiddies and myself cleaned up. Tonite is date night with my hot policeman!! 😉
