Dinner Made Easy

I had a pretty uneventful afternoon. I took care of the usual tasks: laundry, cleaning, a little relaxing.

I had a nice afternoon snack. I reached into the freezer and found a piece of mint chocolate crumble square or something or other. haha I made it quite awhile ago so I have NO idea what in the world it is called. I teamed it with a cup of coffee. It was really good! I heated it in the microwave- it was perfect!

sunday afternoon 001

I made a quick trip to the grocery store for a few necessities and found that Bolthouse Farms Juice  was on sale so I picked some up! I naturally had to try one so I opted to open the Blue Goodness Fruit Smoothie. First off, the nutrition in this drink is awesome! In an 8 oz. serving there is 170 calories, 0 grams of fat & 8 grams of fibre! In addition, the serving includes: 110% RDI Vitamin C, 110% RDI Vitamin E, 120% RDI Thiamin, 129% RDI Folate and so on and so forth! Amazing as you can see. PLUS, the drink tastes great!! It’s the perfect sweet & is just thick and creamy enough. I highly recommend it!!

sunday afternoon 002

I took the pups out and I was way over-dressed!! Jeans in heat do NOT work! I was about 75% over-dressed! hahaha

I wanted to make a simple yet delicious dinner so I pulled out these ingredients:

sunday afternoon 003

We have whole wheat macaroni, light feta cheese, black olives, tomato, scallions, Kraft Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tuscan Italian dressing & a red pepper. Did you figure out what I made?? A delicious summer macaroni salad!

sunday afternoon 004

And some for me! :-)

sunday afternoon 007

Naturally, I required some ice cream to cool my temperature down. I opted for Breyers Double Churn Neopolitan.  MMMMMMMMMMMM!

sunday afternoon 008

Sadly the weekend has almost come to an end. I hope you guys are enjoying the last few hours!

Oh and don’t forget to enter My First Giveaway!! You have until Thursday!
