Fun, Friends & Food!

How was your weekend? Are you ready to tackle another fabulous week?

On Friday, E and I went to dinner with one of my good friends from college. Jenny taught aerobics with me and A&M, and is pretty much one of the coolest people I know! :) We went to one of our favorite restaurants, The Hacienda on Henderson. Their fish tacos are the best!

On Saturday, E an I did work around the house and ran some errands. Baby Boy (aka Champ) was a big helper to dad outside so he was in desperate need of a bath afterwards.

He looks so sad but it really wasn't that bad! After bath time was over, Eric and I went to try out a new restaurant called Cock (like chicken not the bad word) & Bull. I had the Tuna Nicoise and it as pretty much life changing! It was cooked and seasoned to perfection. E had the burger and he said it was amazing as well. After dinner, we went to see the new Harry Potter movie. I LOVED it, Eric on the other hand, wasn't as much of a fan but he was a trooper.


On Sunday, I took advantage of the slightly cooler temps by knocking out my 6 mile long run for the week. I ran over to White Rock Lake and found out that there was a marathon going on Sunday morning. It was fun cheering on all the runners as the ran past me going the opposite direction! I'm still not as fast as I was back in March when I ran my last 1/2 marathon, but I'm getting there.

I love that my watch tells me how far ahead of my goal time I am. Talk about motivating!! I named the little girl at the top (who represents my goal time) Garmina, so every time I go out for a run I'm racing Garmina. Dorky I know, but it's fun.

After my run, it was time to make breakfast and I had a serious craving for pancakes. Nothing says Sunday morning like pancakes, right? Luckily, I had all of the ingredients I needed in my cabinets and fridge already.

Blueberry Banana Pancakes
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 small banana mashed
  • 1 tsp Stevia Fiber Baking Mix (regular stevia would work too)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 Tbsp almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
These pancakes are super easy, healthy and delicious! First mash up your banana and then mix in the remaining ingredients.

Scoop 1/4 a cup of batter in a small skillet and cook evenly on both sides. I think I had the burner up a little too high, but they still tasted good.

My helper passed out before breakfast was even ready!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! I'm excited to try out two new dinner recipes this week so stay tuned for some delicious new meals! What are you cooking up this week?
