My Dang Quesadilla

Hi Beauties!  How are you doing?  I am so glad you girls (and guys?!) enjoy being a kid!  You guys are fun and I loved the highlights of the activities you love to do:
  • Circus
  • Rollerskating/iceskating
  • Chuck E Cheese & the McDonald's playground
  • Waterparks, beach, sand, picnics
  • Trampolines, rollercoasters, swings
  • Games: hide and seek
  • Museums and the zoo
  • Disneyland
  • Baths- (although there is wine involved, so I'm considering that a more European childhood perhaps)
I think we've gotta plan a bloggie field trip!  Anyone with me?

Back to my adult life, I cooked up a little fancy Oscar party for two on Sunday night:
  • Spinach, broccoli slaw, green apple, tomato salad with spicy peanut dressing
  • Baked mussels with marinara and garlic (not my  bag, but my male counterpart LOVES them)
  • Organic chicken, almond, sesame, onion, and green bean stirfry.  Twice baked sweet potatoes with cheese
  • Mixed olives and cheese on the side
Dessert was personalized for our calorie needs:
Hubby had the dulce de leche and I enjoyed this Cefiore fro yo.  This is hands down the best store bought fro yo I have ever had.  It's tart and creamy and I'm in love!
I topped it with frozen pom seeds and dark chocolate covered pom seeds.  LOVE.  I still have 3 more servings left and I'm spreading them out for my desserts this week!

I've also been enjoying this dang quesadilla for lunch and dinner throughout the week.  Just enjoy three of these and you'll get my meals for the week in a summary:
  • Pink lady apple and gouda cheese on a sprouted grain tortilla with extra crunch-age on the side
Questions for you:
1. What's your favorite lower body exercise?  I like squats assisted with a balance ball
2. What's your favorite ice cream?  I love fro yo best, but real ice cream is mint chocolate chip!

That quesadilla sounds so good and I really love gouda - I need to try! Lower body exercise: lunge. Favorite ice cream is anything from Cold Stone!

Mo Diva said...

I love the lite choice! hands down best soft serve on the planet!

and i love your napolean reference. the combo of apples and gouda is perfection!

Missy said...

I'm with Mo Diva! Lite Choice wins! Cookies N Cream to be exact! Favorite lower body is...hmm I don't think I actually enjoy any but I know lunges work very well!

Estela @ Weekly Bite said...

I LOVE the gouda/apple combo! Gouda is one of my favorite cheeses!

Gabriela said...

COLDSTONE! Nutritionally, it's one of the worst things out there, but I just can't help myself :)

I like doing presses on a machine. I also like speed walking on the highest incline available on the treadmill.

My favourite ice cream is probably the coconut milk stuff I have been eating lately!!

Beth @ DiningAndDishing said...

got my chia seeds today - thank you SO much!! :)

Mom on the Run said...

Apples and cheese....MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

I am up for a blogger field trip. How fun would that be.

I will have to agree with Mo. The Lite Choice is the best soft serve ice cream ever! The chocolate hazelnut flavor is amazing.

Gracie @ Girl Meets Health said...

Ahhh...I can't say I like any lower body exercises :P Maybe the hamstring machine? Or lying side leg raises. Squats hurt my knees!

My favorite ice cream is CAKE BATTER. I get it at least once a week in the summer :)

Gina said...

I love your quesadilla idea!! Yum, it sounds amazing, and I bet even Nick would love it.
I like to do squats for my lower body workout. I always feel like I have given my legs a great workout after a couple rounds of squats. And lunges!

Ice cream: Peanut butter chip, hands DOWN! And mint chocolate chip, and oreo. haha, I just love ice cream, period. I love that you put pom seeds on top of yours, great idea!

I love ice cream WAY too much to pick just one...it's like asking a parent to pick their fave child lol

Andrea@CeleryITCity said...

I love that you and the hubs have your own ice creams! I am a fan of pistachio ice cream..or Pinkberry! I love that Pinkberry's froyo tastes like frozen greek yogurt.

Anne Marie said...
