hi everyone :) i am in a bit of a better mood!  i am ultra bummed that my super detailed weekend recap post was lost, but what can i do? no need to dwell. instead, i bring you an extremely shortened version of my weekend recap, david letterman style!

top ten things i did over the weekend!

*in chronological order..not in order of coolness*

number ten: ate some delicious chicken stir fry with chopsticks

IMG_8601

i made this stir fry dish with celery, broccoli, water chestnuts, broccoli slaw and chicken.  the key to making the flavor really pop is to stir fry everything in sesame oil and garlic as opposed to any other kind of oil. the sesame oil really lends a delicious flavor to the dish.

fun fact: i read on danica’s blog that you should keep specialty oils in the fridge so they last longer!

i served the stir fry over brown rice.

number nine: i went to the movies with the boyf fiance on friday night.

we finally saw tim burton’s alice in wonderland.  which, by the way, was not nearly as epic as i had expected! what did you guys think? the cinematography was great.. but the story line was a little “meh” for me.

number eight: hung out with these characters.

number seven: got my bangs trimmed!

yay. no photo for this one.

number six: went to a BBQ at our friend alex & steph’s and had some amazing things to eat…

sabrina made an excellent layered bean dip and threw a twist in with cream cheese instead of sour cream. fantastic.

katie made a really tasty red potato salad which made me happy, because i LOVE red potatoes. only second to the sweet variety ;)

i made a simple asparagus salad which consisted of black olives, diced mozzarella, quartered tomatoes, chopped asparagus and italian dressing.

steps one, two, three, four:

step five is to mix it all up with some italian dressing.. here is the end result:

and marshall grilled some filet mignon for the both of us.. after he picked out which one would be his, aka which one was biggest, of course.

yum. i love steak. no shame in my carnivore game.

since it was my free meal, i enjoyed some dessert.. which was one of my favorites: fruit pizza! made by steph, who is a genius and colored the “sauce” part of the pizza blue! duh, why don’t i ever do that???

the corner is my favorite piece ;)

number five: enjoyed coconut protein pancakes for breakfast on sunday!

IMG_8686

i had to. it was pancake sunday, after all :)

in the mix:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 TB vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

the real kicker was the sprinkle of shredded coconut that went into the pancake during the baking process:

i topped the cakes with ICBINB spray and some log cabin syrup.  speaking of ICBINB.. go check out danica’s giveaway for a fridge makeover courtesy of ICBINB!

yum. every sunday should include pancakes. i smelled like pancakes for the rest of the day :)

number four: went snowboarding on sunday instead of doing my upper body workout!

IMG_8690

very good decision. there are only a few more weekends to snowboard. upper body workouts can wait.

number three: made a green monster, then froze it for a few hours, then ate it. result: protein ice cream at its finest.

in the mix:

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 20 frozen blueberries
  • ice
  • spinach

eaten in the car, on the go:
