Fabulous Day, Shrimpy Bowl

Today has been a really relaxing day! I woke up early....apparently too early for this guy...

ate some raspberries and went for a quick 2.4 mile run. I did some prep work for step this week and then headed to the gym to take Body Pump. After Pump, I went to the pool and spent a good deal of time reading Twilight. I also snacked on this Amazing Grass Green SuperFood Bar.

I actually liked this bar much better than the chocolate flavor. When my tummy started to rumble, I came home for a nice lunch, a nap, and then some more reading. For dinner tonight, I made a shrimpy bowl containing:
Shrimp (boiled)
Steamed cauliflower
Chopped green peppers
Tomato sauce
Garlic
Parmesan cheese

Yummy! I also had an apple with some cinnamon on the side (I know- odd combo ;)).


Tonight is Next Food Network Star, Kendra, and Entourage! Then I'm off to pick Josh up from the airport (hoooray!). I have feeling there will be some more Twilight reading in there- so addicting!
Did you have a nice Sunday? What are you looking forward to this week? I'm looking for a nice dinner with Josh tomorrow night before he takes off again for a work trip!

Not a weird combo at all! I like to put my apples in the oven with cinnamon and a dash of sugar and honey.

What a relaxing day you had. I love Sundays, especially down here where the weather is so beautiful.

Next Food Network Star--I can't believe I almost forgot! Thanks for the reminder!

Anne said...

Your shrimp bowl looks delish! Haha, I agree--the Twilight books definitely are addicting :)

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Ooo shrimp!! That reminds me I have a bag in the freezer--this recipe sounds simple but looks delish! I like the flav combos. I shall try it soon :o) I am looking forward to going home to the rents for the weekend and taking my dad to Seinfeld live. (his father's day present)

THE ACTORS DIET said...

Great shrimpy bowl, too.

Apple and cinnamon are not a weird combo, they are great together! :)

I love your shrimp dish: easy and tasty :)

Maria said...

You love your shrimp, huh? :)
I have tomorrow off, I am so excited! I am going to go running, clean, run errands, and do some baking. Have you tried the 30 day Shred? Might try that too. Just got the dvd from the library. Glad you had a nice day!

teresa said...

Mmmm, I love the shrimp bowl!

I neglected my family for about three days when I read Twilight, it hooks you!

WholeBodyLove said...

When I had a lull in my schedule, I started watching Kendra too! Never would I have thought that show would pull me in as much as it did! Now I DVR it and watch when I can. This week, I am looking forward to new projects and good friends!

Erin of Care to Eat said...

ENTOURAGE! Such a glorious show. Glad to find another woman who is a fan. :)
OH FRANK!

burpandslurp said...

Oh, I miss watching the Food Network! And I had tons of shrimp today too!

Miz said...

Im looking forward to watching my DVR'd entourage (is turtle skinnier now or is it just me? is it true that Jamie Lynn asked him to lose weight in real life?) and perhaps getting a life :)

Eve said...

I love Entourage, but we fell asleep before it was on!

insideiamdancing said...

sounds like a lovely day!

I had a great weekend- this week I have some fun stuff planned including a cooking date with another blogger. Can't wait!

Anna said...

Yea I thought that the chocolate superfood bar was kind of odd- the combo of greens and lots of agave was weird to me. Haven't tried the other one yet.

K from ksgoodeats said...

I love Frank! His smooshy face just kills me - dogs with wrinkles are the best!

Sounds like you had a relaxing Sunday! I missed the end of Kendra because I fell asleep! Hah!

just me said...

Angharad said...

I had a wonderful sunday at the beach and grilling with my boy. I'm looking forward to my first ever 10K race this saturday! (arrggh! also a little nervous!)

Diana said...

Frank is HYSTERICAL. And apples + cinnamon is not weird at all! Amazing, in fact. :)

Michelle said...

He is an absolute doll. I love your blog.

Although my mind is in shape my body needs a little help!

lilveggiepatch said...

AHAHA I love Frank's smooshy face! So cute, I can't stand it.

My Sunday was pretty good! I'm looking forward to catching up with some friends this week.

Eliza said...

Oh nice nice. I graduate next year at UMaine and have always wanted to live there. I would love, love, love to move down there next summer!

mtbcy said...

I tried the sloppy janes and they were fantastic! I added an onion and a bell pepper in for some extra flavor and they were so tasty. Thanks for the wonderful recipe idea!

Julie said...

definitely NOT a weird combo! haha atleast I hope not...because I had about the same thing last night haha

Erica said...
