Day 2, post 2. hey I’m on a ROLL!

Hey peeps!

I’m in a TON of pain this morning.  I started doing a pull up program at the beginning of the month to try to work up to 10 consecutive pull ups (not chin-ups which I’m WAYYY better at) and I hurt my neck.  Somewhere around the 2nd vertebrae.  I can’t walk without hunching forward.  I look ridiculous.  And I can’t Zumba today.  Crap.

So I made Banana Zucchini Bread!

A few months ago I shredded and froze a 2 lb zucchini.  This recipe used the last of it.  Deeeeeelish!  This is my go-to recipe, comes out perfect every time.  I like to tweak things here and there for what I have on hand, it’s very adaptable.

Preheat your oven to 350 and prepare your loaf pan (or muffin tin)…

2c Whole Wheat Flour

1tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Whisk these together in one bowl.

1/4 cup room temp buttery spread (I used Smart Balance Light)

1/4 cup Unsweetened Applesauce

3 super ripe Bananas

1/3c Dark Brown Sugar

3 egg whites

1/2c Zucchini – shredded, do not drain!

Cream together butter, sugar and bananas.  Add in egg whites and blend well.   Pour this mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix well then fold in zucchini.  I topped this one with 2 tbsp of granola….

Pour into your waiting loaf pan (or muffin tin) and bake for 60-65 minutes (25-ish for muffins) until a toothpick comes out clean.

I also wanted to show you last night’s dinner.  No recipe for this one, just kinda eye-balled everything till I got what I wanted:

In this bowl, 2 Laughing Cow wedges, 2 oz spinach, tsp garlic and 3 sun dried tomatoes (not in oil) chopped up

Mix it all up and spread on your [flattened] chicken breast.  Roll em up.

Bake them at 350 for 25 minutes.

Seriously good.  Stupid easy.

Enjoy!

Mother’s Day

Hope all you Moms out there had a great day! 

We spent the afternoon at the In-Laws for lunch.  I brought dessert ☺

Lemon Layer Cake

      Golden Pound Cake 365 gram(s) Sliced Lengthwise – this took 1 (285g) cake and another (80g) slice from a second cake
      Cool Whip Sugar Free, 1.5 cups
      Sugar, .75 cup
      Cornstarch, 3 tablespoons
      Water, tap, 2/3c
      Lemon Juice, .25 cup
      Lemon Peel, 1 tsp
      1/4tsp salt
      1tbsp butter or margarine

In a 1.5 quart saucepan add the sugar, cornstarch and salt.  Turn on the heat to medium high and slowly add the water, stirring constantly.  Once all the water has been added, boil an additional minute until the syrup is thick then shut off the heat.  Add in butter and lemon peel, stir until the butter is melted.  Add in the lemon juice.  Pour into a chilled bowl, cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours until set. 

To assemble, lay 2 pieces of wax paper on a platter and center the first piece of cake.  Spoon on 2 tbsp lemon filling and 4 tbsp cool whip.  Continue until you’ve used all the cake slices.  You’ll probably have leftover lemon filling.  Garnish with strawberries.  Pull the wax paper out and chill 1 hour before serving.

Seroiusly delish – and worth all that sugar!!!

(Lemon Filling from Betty Crocker cookbook)

I also made a pecan pie for the MIL as it’s her favorite:

This thing has 1/2 day’s worth of fat and calories in 1 slice!  I didn’t have any but I was told it came out good – and this is my first attempt at pecan pie!

The rest of my day continued as normal – dinner, baths, laundry and bedtime stories.

Off to see my Momma today!!  Have a Mah-velous Monday!

Thanks for holding.

Hey folks!

Sorry for the long absence, I’ve been taking care of Moms for the last week and haven’t been able to sit at the computer for an extendended period of time.  She finished her last radiation treatment this past Thursday and I’m happy to report today that she is finally starting to feel a bit better.  Please keep your fingers crossed – thanks!!

I wanted to give a big shout out to Miss Mia and Miss Ella who had a birthday yesterday!!!  The BIG #1

Ahhhh!!! Aren’t they adorable??!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

And another big shout out to my sisters’-in-law, Angela and Lynda whose birthday is today:

I bet you’re wondering how I enjoyed my first taste of Peanut Butter on Easter morning…….

Well, it was a tad anticlimactic:

Best rice cake EVER.  I had about 3 tbsp of PB in the morning and then OD’d on some Blue Diamond Cinnamon Brown Sugar almonds that night ☺

The kids’ Easter morning looked like this:

We went out to brunch with Officer M’s grandparents (his Mom & Dad were in Boston with his sister and the new baby), and my family came over later in the evening for some ham and potato soup and homemade cornbread.  Pretty low-key, which I love.

Well, I gotta get a move on.  Hopefully I can post the rest of the stuff I had planned on later today or tomorrow.  Have a great Tuesday!

I hurt so good.

Quick recap on my workouts from the last few days:

Wednesday – Kickboxing.  Felt awesome, had a good workout.

(Legs were pretty tired)

Thursday – P90X Legs and Back.  Used heavier weights and I did 24 (out of 86) unassisted pullups/chinups. 

(Legs were hurtin’)

Friday – Insanity Max Plyometric video.  I was staring the clock down willing it to move faster.

(Afraid to sit down for fear my legs would no longer function)

Saturday Rest. BFF called and wanted to know if I wanted to do an Insanity video.  WHAT?  Are you nuts?  I can BARELY move!  Ok, sure – see you in 15.

(The lower back pain has now cancelled out the leg pain)

I’m falling apart at the seams I tell ya!

I did get some cooking done yesterday too.  After BFF left, I made some Italian White Bean & Turkey Soup:

adapted from Sunday Night Dinner

  • Poultry seasoning, 1 tbsp 
  • Rosemary, dried, 1 tsp 
  • Thyme, ground, 1 tsp 
  • Garlic, 4 cloves
  • Onions, raw, 1 medium (2-1/2″ dia) 
  • Spinach, fresh, 1 package (10 oz) 
  • Ground Turkey – 99% fat free, 20 oz 
  • Chicken Broth – College Inn Light & Fat Free, 4 cup 
  • beans kidney white cannellini PROGRESSO 15oz
  • Cooking Spray

1) In a medium stock pot brown ground turkey with the cooking spray, season with a poultry seasoning ( and S&P if you like), break into small pieces and brown for 3-4 minutes. Drain excess fat, if necessary. Add garlic and onions and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until onions are soft.

2) Add cannellini beans, thyme, rosemary and chicken stock. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Mix in chopped spinach and simmer 5 more minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.

This recipe makes about 10 cups.  I figured the stats in 1 cup servings, but really, I never eat just 1 cup!

I separated it into 2 large tupperware bowls and froze one.  BTW, did you know if you lay a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the soup before you put the cover on, it will keep the soup from becoming freezer burned?  Try it!

Next up was Banana Muffins!  The rotten bananas on the counter were about to revolt.

With multiple accoutrements:

Preheat your oven to 350.  Mix the flour, soda and salt in one bowl.  Cream together the butter, applesauce and brown sugar.  Mix the egg whites and banana together really well and pour that into the butter/sugar mixture.  Stir that well and then pour the wet ingredients into the dry.  [*Sorry about all the dirty bowls!*]  Prepare your muffin tin and scoop about a 1/4 cup into each well. 

Top with whatever your little heart desires.  My heart screamed WALNUTS!  Peyton and Reese wanted chocolate and peanut butter chips – go figure.  Stats are for the muffins without any add-ins.

Bake them about 15-18 minutes.

Now I could’ve messed with these and cut out more fat, added more protein, lower sugar etc., but sometimes you just want a damn muffin, so I make no apologies for these.  They’re damn good.  Not to sweet and perfectly moist.

Lastly I roasted an eggplant that I tossed in some Maple Grove Farms Fat Free Balsamic vinaigrette.  This particular brand doesn’t have any HFCS, where as my other favorite brand did 😦 . 

They kinda look like potatoes huh?

Anyway, I served these mixed with some (jarred) fire roasted red peppers and feta and my Chicken Italiano.  <—-You’re gonna have to click on the link to see it cause I didn’t get a picture.

So there ya go, now you’re up to date.  Gotta go bang out some P90X Chest, Shoulders and Triceps followed by Ab Ripper.

But first!  IBUPROPHEN! 

Happy Sunday 😉

Mommy want a cracker?

Yes please.

I LOVE Wheat Thin crackers but I don’t keep them in the house because I have ZERO control over myself with them.  I suppose that’s why they’re called CRACK-ers. 

Here are the stats on regular wheat thins:

 

 Calories: 150, Total Fat: 6g, Carbs: 21g, Protein: 2g 

 Take note of the serving size here.  9 grams.  That’s about 1/3 of an ounce or about 16 crackers.

 

 And the reduced fat version:

 

 Calories: 130, Total Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 22g, Protein: 2g

Again, 16 crackers.

So Maria over at Maria’s Nutritional Consulting (www.mariahealth.blogspot.com  – love this site!) had this solution for us cracker lovers.  There are so many good things to say about this recipe!  It was simple to make, took only a few minutes to prepare, cost about the same as a box of Wheat Thins, tasted awesome, can be modified for different flavors, low fat, low calorie, LOW CARB-HIGH FIBER!

You will need 1 package Joseph’s Lavash Wraps:

Lay out all 4 wraps on a cutting board:

Cut with a pizza cutter.  I cut it 8×8 – so 64 crackers per lavash:

The hardest part of this recipe was separating the crackers and laying them out onto cookie sheets (make sure to spray the pans with some cooking spray – canola or olive oil).  I got them all laid out before the oven was pre-heated.

Once they’re laid out on the cookie sheets spray with the cooking spray and season them.  I used just a little sea salt.  Next time, to give them that Wheat Thin sweetness, I’ll sprinkle on a little bit of Stevia.

Bake em’.  Maria says to do it at 325 for 12 minutes.  I did mine at 400 degrees for 7 minutes because for some reason I though that was the  temp I read.  It worked, but watch them closely so they don’t burn!

Once cooled, separate into snack size baggies.  I did 6 servings which gave me about 40 crackers per serving!

Love these babies.  I already ate 1/2 of them…..

I love productive days.

I got 3 loads of laundry done, baked some Pumpkin Casserole, scrubbed the stove (no small feat lemme tell ya!) and fridge, washed down the bathroom, changed 5 poopie diapers (this kid needs to learn to use the potty STAT!) bathed the rugrats and dusted the whole house.  Busy morning!!  I was thinking about doing an Insanity video today, but I’m really trying to stick with the scheduled rest-days.   Some rest, huh?

Sooo Annnnyywhooo….

I’ve had a hankerin’ to make a starburst mirror for a while now, but I don’t really like the traditional kind with the ‘chopstick’-like look to it.  I wanted something softer:

Instant gratification project. ☺♥  Took me all of 30 minutes to make and cost me $9.  Love it! 

The kids wanted to make something too, so I let them have at my scrap poster board:

Dinner was something I had seen on another site (can’t remember where though).  Pizza Wraps.  Here’s how I did it –

  • Onions, raw, 0.25 cup, chopped 
  • Kraft Finely Shredded Low-Moisture Part Skim mozzarella cheese, 1 cup
  • Shadybrook Farms 99% Fat Free Ground Turkey 20 oz 
  • Flat Out – Light Italian Herb Flat Bread, 8 wraps
  • Pizza Sauce, 1/2 jar
  • Green Peppers (bell peppers), 0.75 cup, chopped
  • Peppers, sweet, red, raw, sliced, .75 cup
  • Grapeseed Oil, 1 tbsp
  • Garlic, 3 cloves
  • Pizza seasoning
  • Cooking spray

In a heated skillet, saute your veggies using the cooking spray.  Once they’re soft, put them in a bowl and set aside.  Brown your turkey meat in the grapeseed oil and add your pizza seasoning.  If you are using the 99% fat free kind you will not have to drain the cooked meat.  Toss your veggies back in and stir in the sauce. 

Assembly time!  Lay out your wrap, top with some cheese (I also added some pepperoni to Officer M’s) and 1/2 c of the meat mix. 

Wrap em up!  Now, you could toss them in the oven to melt the cheese but I didn’t want to wait 15 minutes for my oven to pre-heat so I threw them on the grill pan:

Just a couple of minutes till the cheese melts and you get a crisp on the wrap.  I had a hard time keeping a couple of them closed….

I’m off to surf the interweb for meanings of these ridonculously weird dreams I’ve been having.  I’m still waiting for the dream where I lose a tooth – apparently that means you’re gonna win the lottery!!  I suppose my odds would increase if I actually bought a ticket though…..  Nite!

Does anyone else ♥ cake as much as I do?

It’s really, really early.  Miss P wanted Cheerios at 4:17am.  *yawn*

So I forgot to show you the fantastical cupcakes from Thursday’s playdate with Miss Ivy’s Ladies:

I have a problem with cake.  Have you seen that Sex and the City Episode where Miranda makes a cake mix and keeps going into the kitchen and picking at it, then finally ends up throwing it in the trash only to pick at it from the trashcan anyway?  Yeah.  I haven’t eaten trash cake, but don’t put it past me.  I ♥ cake.

Here’s my go to chocolate cake recipe.  It’s not overly sweet which balances out the frosting really well.  Trust me, once you use this, boxed mixes just won’t cut it anymore! 

Chocolate Mayo Cake

Baking Soda, 3/4 tsp
Baking Powder, 1 tsp
Sugar, 1/2 cup
Mayonnaise, Hellman’s Light, 3/4c
Hershey’s special dark cocoa powder, 1/3 cup
Water, tap, 3/4 cup
Vanilla Extract, 3/4 tsp
King Arthur Flour – Whole Wheat, 1.5 cup

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
  • Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and sugar into a large bowl. Stir in mayonnaise. Gradually add water and vanilla and blend until smooth. Scoop batter into 12 cupcake wrappers.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15-ish minutes
  • [**If you want to make a full cake with this recipe, just double the ingredients, pour into 2 9-inch cake pans and bake them at 350 for 30 minutes.]

    I also finished a little project I was working on for Bugga’s room.

    I traced a car onto some leftover MDF and cut it out with a jigsaw.  After it was painted a nice fire-engine red I painted the windshield with Chalkboard paint.  The headlights are painted with yellow acrylic paint and covered in epoxy bubble stickers.  The grill is some spray-painted corrugated cardboard and the tires are a rubber mat I cut up.  Total cost = $6.

    Today’s agenda includes cardio (by way of Insanity I think) AND some strength training.  I hope I can muscle through it (pun intended) cuz I am draggin’ ass.  Hope your Saturday shapes up to be a good one!

    The Big Reveal!

    I am finally finished with the Secret Project!  It took about 3 weeks to do and I did 99% of it myself (some elbow grease provided by Officer M – thanks babe)!!

    Okay, so 3-ish weeks ago I bought this beauty of Craigslist:

    Yes.  It is a TV stand from 1997.

    Yes.  I paid good money for it ($20).

    Yes, I’m totally serious.

    But I had a vision.  And for less than $100, I made it into this:

    I’ll let you soak in the awesome-ness…..

    First I sanded the crap out of the whole thing.  Then, I painted this bad boy with 2 coats of primer and one coat of a high-gloss latex paint.  This took the most amount of time.

    I went to Home Depot to have them cut me the MDF I needed to make a back panel, fridge door and oven door.  This was the biggest expense at almost $20.  While I was there I also grabbed some hinges ($15). 

    I also visited the plumbing department where a very nice man donated the faucet to my cause (it was missing all it’s functional inerds).  This thing is nicer than MY kitchen faucet!

    Officer M lended some muscle here by drilling the holes for the faucet to sink into (we used a door lock installation kit) and a larger starting hole for the sink.  I finished the holes with a jigsaw.  The faucet sits in there pretty tight.  I used a bowl we had and it sits in there without any glue, just in case water becomes invovled in the play process.  The ‘window’ is a blown up picture of my back yard.  My Dad suggested I take pictures of every season, which I am totally planning on!  The curtain was leftover fabric from Christmas hot glued onto the frame.

    Now the stove is made up of an old cutting board and some appliance knobs ($2).  The buners are tops from cottage cheese and yogurt containers spray-painted silver and the clock in from a whipped cream container.

    One more picture:

    Next the fridge:

    My Dad grabbed the handles for all the doors for me at Ocean State Job Lot.  They were bronze so I had to spray them silver.  The sheet metal was $10 at Home Depot and I had to grab a piece of trim to cover the sharp edges ($4).  Magnets from Joanne Fabrics ($.59).

    I re-used the dishwasher door (on the left) by just adding hinges at the bottom so it pulls down.  The oven door was made with MDF and the window was made from some plastic from a container I was throwing away.  The cabinet on the right just got a new handle.

    Inside storage: 

    And for a touch of cuteness, a chalkboard and their aprons:

    Officer M thought I was nuts for wanting to bring in this huge piece of furniture, but it actually holds a lot of toys and I got rid of the cheap bin towers.

    Well, there you have it.  It’s by no means perfect, but the rugrats love it.  I do too 😉

    To summarize: Snow, Eggs, Seeds & Paint.

    Whasshakin?

    I’m sure you’ve noticed the slight change of direction this blog has taken over the last couple of months.  I hope you don’t mind.  Being trapped in the house makes for boring workouts.  Also, it forces me to actually look at the house.  The more I look, the more I want to change (read: fix).

    And, having borderline OCD, when I start something – like spring cleaning or a craft project – it tends to consume me.

    So today it is snowing.  Again.

    The kids haven’t really been able to enjoy the snow so much because of lingering colds, but today everyone seems good…fingers crossed. 

    Oh, just so you know, Officer M decided on White Bean Chicken Chili the other day.  While that was simmering away, I made  Egg, Spinach & Cheese Bake.  Easy Peasy.

    8 egg whites

    1/2 c milk (I used 1%)

    10 oz pkg frozen Spinach (thaw and drain)

    1/2 c Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Italian Blend (or Cheddar)

    Pepper

    Onion Powder (real onion would be better)

    Garlic Powder

    Yeah, so mix everything together, pour into a prepared 8×8 pan and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.   Bacon bits would rock this.  Ahhh, hindesight.

    We also made the bird seed feeders:

    Here’s what we used:

    3/4c Ap Flour

    1/2c Water

    1/4c Light Corn Syrup

    Mix these well. 

    Then we added in whatever we had on hand, which was:

    Flax Seed

    Walnuts & Almonds (ground up a bit)

    Raisins

    Oats

    Sorry no measurements on those.  Just keep adding until you get a pretty dry mixture. 

    Spray a baking sheet and cookie cutters with non-stick spray and stuff in the mixture:

    Using a straw, poke a hole through the feeder so you can add a string:

    Now if you are a patient person (which I am NOT), you can leave these out to dry overnight.  I baked them at 170 degrees for 1.5 hours, flipping them once.  If you bake them, make sure to remove your cutters and straws first!  No-I don’t think you are stupid, but we all have those days 😉

    Fun stuff.  We pakaged up a couple as gifts and hung one out on the deck.  Which the dog promptly ate.  I’m not sure what all that flax is gonna do to her……

    In between the bird seed and cooking I managed to finish painting the bedroom!!  Yay!!  Ugly chailrail GONE!  Soothing grayish-blue color IN!!

    Here is my dilemma though.

    I was gonna paint the armoir and headboard Antique White, but the more I look at the wood next to the new paint, the more unsure I am:

    (Sorry-had to use the flash, all the lamps were unplugged)

    Here’s the headboard again:

    So last night I convinced Officer M we needed to bite the bullet and get new dressers.  I picked out these from Raymour and Flanigan:

    These are done in a Cherry Finish.

    So I’m thinking if we get these new dressers, I will paint the headboard and armoir. 

    Taking votes here, what do you think?  Seriously, I need some input!!

    OK.  Gotta get off my rear and get my P90X on.  Later!

    I can’t STOP!

    It all started with this:

    This homely, piece of crap coat rack.  We’ve hated this thing FOR-EV-ER.  So I got the idea to purty it up:

    For a little leftover paint and $4 in knobs – not too shabby.  Or maybe Shabby Chic?

    Then I got the painting bug.  And I needed to do the living room:

    Blah.

    Ahhhh….

    A little paint and some new accessories (that I already had) and voila!  Not so vanilla anymore!

    Here’s a few more:

    And that metal scroll-y chandelier-y looking thingy that was over the fireplace?  That got a fresh new look and a nice new home:

    It’s now hanging over Miss P’s bed.  Just gives her even more reason to believe she really is a princess….

    I didn’t forget about Bugga.  I made him a growth chart outta some leftover MDF from my secret project (more on that very soon):

    I have some cars ready to be glued onto this, but I have a feeling Bugga would try to pry them off.  He likes to put this on the floor and use it as a race track.

    There are some other things going on too, but I need to make some progress before I post them.  I will however show you the FAN-FREAKIN-TASTC headboard my Dad and I found at the flea market for $5!!!!!

    I L♥ve, L♥ve, L♥VE this thing!   

    I really wanted to make an upholstered headboard for the bedroom, then I saw this beauty!  How could I pass it up for $5????   So I dragged Ivy to the fabric store with me yesterday afternoon and now I have a PLAN – mwahahaha!!!!! 

    Anywho.

    I have been keeping up with my workouts in case you were wondering.  Not doing 2-a-days frees up some time.  The only thing that sucks about doing P90X as my primary workout is that my cardio is taking a nosedive. 

    I know, I know.  I’ve read all the articles about how cardio is bottom of the pyramid for weight maintenance/loss, but kickboxing and the E got hard!  I haven’t set foot on the treadmill at all this year either…..

    Speaking of kickboxing.

    Either I’m hardcore – or I bruise like a week old pear:

    I’m gonna go with the latter…

    So today’s agenda is a double-P90x this am and Kickboxing tonight.  I skipped Chest & Back yesterday to go to the fabric store.  Gotta say, the fabric store was WAYYY more fun!

    Right now I’m fueling up with this:

    3 egg whites, La Tortilla Factory wrap, 1 oz deli turkey and Chipotle Laughing Cow Wedge.  TONS of protein.

    I gotta get my workout done early cuz my Momma’s coming over.  She asked me to help her with some weight training (that and she wants to use my E and treadmill).

    Ta-ta for now homies!!

    *****OH WAIT!!  I ALMOST FORGOT THE BIG NEWS!!!******

    If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know Officer M studied for the Sergeant’s exam for like 6 months and finally took the damn thing in October.  Well, the results came in on Saturday.

    Officer M was the ONE AND ONLY person to pass the test!!!!!

    OHMYFREAKINGGOD!!! 

    So proud of my hot policeman- you rock honey!!!!
