MIA/Meals

Hi All! Sorry I have been semi-MIA! I had a busy end of the week/weekend! Here is a quick overview and then some pretty meal pictures/recipe links:

Tuesday: Work, Gave Frank a bath, Taught Body attack, Sloppy Janes for dinner. Josh had a melty version with cheese on top of Arnold's thins:

While Jenny and I topped our salads with the sloppy Janes:

Wednesday: Body Pump, Work, Errands, random leftovers dinner
Thursday: Work, Ran 6 miles with Jenny, prepped for our trip (packing, etc), our friend Jeremy came over for dinner. The boys had mini burgers and we all shared corn on the cob, salads, and this lovely appetizer that Jenny made- crab mixed with seasoning and a little bread crumb in hard boiled egg whites:

Friday-Sunday: Josh and I drove to Rehoboth Beach, DE for a wedding this weekend. The drive took 11 hours there and 10 hours on the way back. It was a longgggggggggg trip but we had a blast! I will post some wedding pictures later this week.
When we got back last night, I threw in some laundry, cleaned up the house a bit, and made dinner. I made Aggie's Crispy Fish Fingers:



And cooked up some squash and brussel sprouts:


It was light and delicious and EXACTLY what I needed after a long car ride. How was your weekend? What did you do?

hahaahh! I just had to comment one more time! I read your comment on my blog: "Love that Owell wanted the Z bar- too cute!" and was confused until I looked back at my post. I meant Oh Well,....not Owell! So I can see how you got confused! Her name is Molly and the one who fell asleep on my computer is her sister Abbey! lol! It gave me a good laugh!

Have a good night!

Hey lovely!

I'm glad you had such a fun week and weekend! Those Sloppy Janes look delicious! And I would have never thought to combine crab with egg whites, but it sounds and looks SO good!!

My weekend was too short! I finished up my last school project.
