Is it really only Tuesday night? This week is moving too slow for me :). This am I woke really early to get in a workout. I ran two miles, did twenty minutes on the elliptical and then did a 20 minute lower body workout. I also had a dentist appointment this am that went well-no cavities yayy. This afternoon I gave Frank a bath, did some laundry/ironing, cleaned the bathroom, and then got to cooking! Tonight I tried Quinoa for the first time! I cooked it according to the package directions and then added toasted pine nuts and cooked peas. I really enjoyed the Quinoa, as did Josh.
Full din din: Chicken and Quinoa
We have a pot luck day at work tomorrow. I made a big pot of my black bean dip to bring in with some chips. I also decided to make up some breakfast pot luck- Coconut Almond Muffins:
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup coconut
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or substitute (I used smart balance)
1 egg or equivalent egg substitute
sliced almonds to top muffins
Mix all ingredients except almonds. Fill muffin trays 2/3 full (makes 12 muffins). Top with sliced almonds. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean.
They are pretty simple muffins but I enjoy the flavor. Josh and I split one for dessert. Frank and I are ready for bed...hopefully we can convince Josh to join us :)
