Her Thursday Things to Talk About: A BBQ CONTEST!

Morning folks, look what I woke up to this morning:)

4

Pink and I had a beautiful 20 minute Detox Yoga session with Lisa. I was bummed that I  only stretched last night and couldn’t get my Yoga in, oh well it’s only one day. I was pretty sore this morning from yesterday’s hilly run, pigeon pose was a GOOD hurt, if you know what I mean:)

YESTERDAY’S EATS

Snack 10:30am: Greek Yogurt,Granola, and Blueberries

20

Lunch 1pm: MASSIVE SALAD! Black Eye Peas, WW Pita, and light Laughing Cow Cheese.

Toppings:

23

24

4pm Snack: Apple and PB

21

Yesterday, I was so ready to come home for date night because, for some reason all the kids had the CRAZY bug at school!!!! Hubby and I decided to cook at home for Date Night, not only is it cheaper but it was A LOT more healthier.  Thanks for all the ideas for next week!!!

6

Hubby made his famous vinegar chicken, with green beans, black eye peas, and a bp. The breast of chicken was enough to feed a small tribe of people, hubby had no problem contributing:)

7

I went to with bbq baked tofu, kale chips(amazing), and some sweet potato fries. The perfect meal! I have yet to have Kale Chips, wow I have been missing out. I love the way they get crunchy in the oven, and I sprinkled with a little parmesan cheese, and it was so TASTEY!

12

After dinner we played some card games, and watched TBL, and WOW, that’s all I have to say about that episode!!!! Man what a week. 

MORNING EATS

I had a peach that was a little too soft to eat, so I decided to add 1/2 of it to my Oats this morning. I shall call this bowl, Peach Cranberry Cobbler!

1

The Combo:

  • 1/3 cup oats, 1/2 c water, 1/2 c almond milk, 1/2 banana, pinch salt
  • half peach mixed in while cooking
  • vanilla
  • 1 tbsp of chopped pecan 
  • 1/3 cup home-made cranberry sauce
  • 1/8 crumbled  Honest Food Blueberry Plank Bar
  • Spoonful Barney Butter
  • Sprinkle of Unsweetened Coconut flakes

    2

    I think peaches will be around a lot more, it added the perfect texture and sweetness! Check out our sky TODAY! WHAT! I want some sunshine:(

    3

    This called for me to wait until tonight for my track workout at the gym, I just wasn’t too motivated. Plus I stayed up real late last night because right before we went to bed Hubby told me some very SAD news, crying before bed is never FUN! It’s nothing to do with us or me, it’s just some news about some friends, that BROKE my heart. I prayed and gave it to God, I know he will help them.

    Look who also crashed on us!

    CONTEST TIME

    Mmmmm, I am wanting to try this Country Bob's. We got a smoker for Christmas and despite still learning how to use it, chicken taste wonderful on it. In honor of "Bob" who gave us the smoker, I think I would try this with some of the smoked chicken and turn it into a pulled chicken sandwich on a w.w. open bun with some slaw salad on the side!

    Michelle C. said...

    I think I would use Country Bob's as a dipping sauce for some sweet potato fries, tofu, grilled chicken strips. From what I've read on the blogs it works perfectly with almost ANYTHING!

    Meghann said...

    I love your seperator bowl you bring everything for your salad in. I need something like that. :)

    CalliNae said...

    Well gosh, with tofu, of course! :) And maybe some tempeh.. mmm...

    Danielle said...

    Oz Runner said...

    BBQ sauce would go on some grilled chicken....and probably as a dipping sauce for my kids chicken strips....

    My husband loves bbq sauce on his hot dogs - it would be a great addition to our "supply"! Thanks for the contest!

    Elsa said...

    Hi Bobbi. I am a daily reader but I don't think I have ever commented before. I would use Bob's sauce on some yummy baked tofu.

    blackdove5 said...

    I'm thinking of trying something a little different -I love BBQ pulled chicken and cornbread, so maybe try a sort of BBQ chicken casserole with cornbread topper.

    MoFish said...

    Since it's almost spring, thank goodness, I'd definitely use the BBQ sauce on some salmon on the grill!

    Sarah said...

    Helen's Journey said...

    As I am a vegetarian, I would use it with tofu, on meat free burgers or pitta pizzas.

    aron said...

    Your salads look a lot like my daily salads :) BIG and bright!

    I won a bottle on another blog BUT I would love to win another!! I would probably put it on a veggie burger or something on that order. My husband LOVES sauce so he could find lots of good things to use it with.

    RunToFinish said...

I would love to try this. I put bbq on everything, so I dont even know where I would begin, but it would probably start straight on a spoon haha :)

    Lance said...

    The food here today looks delicious Bobbi - you're making me hungry (well...I guess that pretty much happens everytime I visit!)

    Totally some bbq tofu. I've never had REAL bbq tofu on a bbq and as soon as it's warmer I want to give it a try.

    Mica said...

    Hmm, I think I'd probably put the sauce on my tofu, which definitely is in need of flavor!

    I love your "Date Night" idea. It's so sweet. :)
