I slept in a little yesterday, I didn’t wake up until the late hour of 6:30. For breakfast, I was really cravings buttered toast with eggs so I channeled my inner Jordan and makes eggs in a basket. I brushed two slices of TJ’s high fiber whole wheat bread with a little melted smart balance and then cut a hole in each piece with a glass. I put them into the pan and then cracked an egg into each hole and sprinkled on a little salt and pepper.
While they cooked, I munched on a bowl of grapes.
This breakfast really hit the spot, I am thinking you will be seeing this one many times in the future. Thanks, Jordan! After breakfast, the dear husband and I hit the road for a quick dose of sunlight. We walked around our neighborhood bundled up in our hat and gloves, it was chilly! Our walk was followed by laundry and then lunch. For lunch, I made whole wheat couscous topped with a morning star farms fake chicken patty and topped it all off with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.
For dessert, we shared this lovely chocolate croissant from Whole Foods.
Lunch was followed by a little more laundry and some food prep for the week ahead. While I was cooking, I took a little break and had two of these little chocolate meringues from TJ”s. I really really liked these, I was surprised by how chocolaty the flavor was! Once my prep was done, I took a nice long nap. This IS what I love about Sundays!
For dinner, I made a little dish I dreamed up in my head while looking at our choice of ingredients.
BBQ Apples and Pork Chops
2 bone in pork chops
1 tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper, Penzy’s BBQ 3000 (or any other BBQ seasoning)
1 small apple, core removed and thinly sliced
1/4 of a small red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce
Preheat the oven to 350*. Coat the chops in the olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and BBQ Seasoning. Place chops in a baking dish and cover each with half of the the onion and apple. Drizzle each chop with 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce. Cover the dish and bake for 45 minutes then remove the cover and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve with additional BBQ sauce for dipping.
I made baked sweet potatoes topped with smart balance and cinnamon to go along side our chops. This was a perfect easy fall dinner. For dessert, we had the last of the peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal bars with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and then drizzled with chocolate sauce. These bars are so tasty, I can not wait to make them again and again.
Thought Provoker: Do you think it is important to have a low key day to regroup and prepare for the upcoming week? I feel lost throughout the weekend if I haven’t done my prepwork.
