It was a gorgeous day for a run today. I got home while the sun was still up and went for a lovely 5-mile run around my neighborhood. It was so nice to be running in the sunshine and warmish weather. I cannot wait for spring!
It was still light out when I finished my run at 7pm! I worked up a good sweat today – I was a little overdressed for 40 degrees.
For dinner, we whipped together a quick and easy dish, since we were both pretty hungry. While the quinoa was cooking away, I heated up some frozen veggies. I don’t love to use frozen veggies because fresh veggies always taste so much better, but we are lacking in the veggie department today.
While the brussels sprouts and okra were heating up, I squeezed on a little honey mustard for flavor.
We also added some spinach until slightly wilted.
Once the quinoa was cooked, I added chopped parsley, lemon zest and the juice from 1 lemon.
This ended up being a pretty tasty meal.
Even though I definitely overcooked the veggies – bummer!
We served our meal with a side of Flax Oat Bran bread – yum!
After dinner, I made my favorite dessert – Banana Soft Serve!
I always have a jar of bananas in the freezer for smoothies and soft serve. I buy more at the beginning of each week – I save some to eat fresh and some go in the freezer.
This is so easy to make. Tonight I added a splash of vanilla and shake of cinnamon to the mix. I threw everything into my food processor and blended until soft and creamy!
Mmmmm…I loved the addition of the cinnamon and vanilla! I also loved the idea that I got from Kath last night! I got out my chocolate peanut butter and heated in the microwave until melted.
Then poured my melty PB onto my whipped banana softserve.
Oh my…this is the best thing I have ever had! Seriously – you should make this right now!
I also added a few dark chocolate chunks on top for fun.
Happy St. Patty’s Day Eve!
