Grab and Go

Happy Thursday afternoon/evening! How was your day? Mine was pretty decent. Work was a little slow, but after a busy work week thus far…I sort of welcomed the slow down. In fact, as a result of all the extra work, I get to take a half day tomorrow!!

I’m posting a little early tonight because I have to teach 45 minute Body Step and then plan to take 45 minute Body Pump. After, I will hurry home, shower, grab my portable food containers out of the fridge and then head to the airport to pick up Josh (HOOOOOOOORAY!). So here is what I plan to eat for dinner while I sit in the cell phone waiting area-

Vegetables and Apple with Peanut Sauce:

Recipe can be found here.

On the side I will have a kashi bar:
I plan to nibble a bit more when I get home ;)
I also cooked up a little pasta with cauliflower and red sauce for Josh in case hes hungry when he gets off the plane:


Can you believe its almost weekend time?? Do you have any plans? I have the usual classes to teach (Body Attack tomorrow, Body Step Saturday and I will probably take Body Pump Sunday). Other than that, we have dinner plans with friends tomorrow night and my parents are taking us out to lunch for our anniversary on Sunday. I hope to get out and get LOTS of fresh air too!

Have fun picking up your man!

p.s. You always make such simple, but unique and good looking dishes--love it! :-)

burpandslurp said...

Oh, that veggie and apple with peanut sauce bowl sounds really good. I would add some kabocha in there for carbs :-)
hmm...maybe some raisins and chicken too! Voila! Full meal! :D

Lauren said...

I bet the combo of apple/veggies and peanut sauce was a beautiful thing. Anything apple and PB is a winner.

Sounds like a nice weekend. We have a wedding so it should be fun. Weddings are always my excuse to drink free wine and dance all night!

Hope you had a beautiful day hun!

Ada said...

I'm glad Josh is returning and that you too can have a nice reunion! That was sweet of you to cook him pasta:)

Maria said...

Yea Josh is coming home! Have a fun night! I worked out, picked plums, I am drying plums now and making homemade yogurt. Zucchini bread is in the oven too. I hope to relax and watch the finale of SYTYCD in a bit!

lilveggiepatch said...

Ooh, that recipe looks good! Whole Foods had something similar the last time I went. I never would have thought to put apple in stir fry, but it's mighty tasty!

Finsmom said...

Your food always looks so yummy!

veggie+apples+peanut sauce = looks AMAZING.

Yahoo for being home - enjoy your time with your man!

How sweet of you to bring dinner just in case. Have a great weekend!

Meredith said...

Hi!
I just started reading food blogs and am really enjoying them! You've prob answered this a bajillion times before, but what exactly is body attack? could you please differentiate between all the classes you teach/take and tell us a bit about them in more detail? that'd be awesome! thanks!

Miz said...

since Im such an adult my weekend includes LOTS of tattooing :)

I cant wait.

Erica said...

Meredith- Thank you for the question! I am planning on doing an about me post soon, so I promise to address this question in that post :) For now, please check out Lesmills.com. This is the company that produces the classes I teach!

Yum Yucky said...

Yum! I didn't realize Kashi had peanut butter bars. (how silly of me)

Erica - what do you think about that health club shooting? Very terrible. :~(

Cait (Cait's Plate) said...

Aw, such a good wife! That meal looks amazing and I think I'd eat it upon arriving home even if I wasn't hungry!! :)

stephchows said...

Hmmm veggies and apples with peanut sauce... I need to check that out!

She-Fit said...

biz319 said...

Hooray for Josh coming home! Have fun with your rents! :D

fittingbackin said...

I've never had those kashi bars before! But if it's PB i'm already 75% in! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sharon said...

Have a great weekend! Glad he's back home and hope he enjoyed his yummy looking pasta.

Jessica said...

Of all of the airports that I have been to I think Charleston has got to be my favorite!

Those veggies in peanut sauce look delish!

When someone is gone and you really miss them, picking them up at the airport is the BEST!

Michelle @ Find Your Balance said...

Me too, lots of fresh air this weekend! It's gloriously free of any major plans :-)

Diana said...

I love the peanut stirfry veggies with a peanut butter kashi bar on the side. You are a girl after my own heart! :)

Bridget said...

Fun Weekend!! Man I need to take as many aerobics classes as you teach!! You always make such nice meals for Josh!

The Blonde Duck said...

I have like a zillion of those bars in my pantry! We're twinkies!

Diane, Fit to the Finish said...

Your weekend sounds great! I've got some functions to attend for church, but other than that - we're free as birds!
