Posts Tagged ‘Ritz Crackers’

I did a lot of snacking today… I guess I thought I deserved it after my Pilates class this morning.!?!?

I took a small bowl of Almonds, Cranberries, and Raisins Trailmix… then I got a taste for some of my favorite Hummus. I found a box of Ritz crackers… the new ones that are mixed the ritz cracker and pretzel. I had probably about 20-30 crackers and several spoonfuls of Hummus.

Then Mike got back from Jacksonville, where he dropped off his son at the airport and picked me up a new Beach Cruiser Bike. I took it for a spin around the neighborhood, and I really need to get used to it. It’s not really the bike I want.. plus I still have the bike at Sears that needs to be picked up. There’s been one delay after another getting it delivered to the Daytona Beach Mall and then they have to assemble it still.

After the bike ride…which was so nice we came home and I made a Fresh Vegetable Salad again with an Oil and Vinegar Dressing.

Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple Salsa

OMG!!! I can’t believe that I did this.

Mike and I went to my girlfriend Robin’s house for a house warming she was having Saturday Afternoon.  So, I got up with every intention of making some salsas with the VitaMix to take to her party!

I made the Tropical Avocado Salsa – Again. Which turned out even better the second time???

Plus, I made a Pineapple Salsa:

Ingredients:

1Can Cut Pineapples

2Tbls. Olive Oil

1/2Small Onion, Peel

1/2Orange Bell Pepper

2Tbls. Cilantro

1/2 Lime, peeled

1/2Tsp salt

1/4 Jalapeno Pepper

Directions:

Oh they tasted soooo good. I also brought along some Tortilla Chips and some Ritz Crackers for dipping. After finishing the dips and running some last minute errands, we arrived at Robin’s house around 1pm.

I met Robin’s parents, her in-laws; it was such a lovely time. And Robin had out her appetizers (my salsas) and then a lunch which consisted of grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, shrimp gumbo, and a big Strawberry Salad. I had every intentions of eating. In fact I was snacking on my dips that I had brought. But as the afternoon went on, my glass of wine kept getting filled (Not once was my glass of wine empty for more than 10 seconds) and before I knew it, it was around 7 or 8 pm in the evening. 

Well, Mike had to pull me away from the festivities which had winded down to an almost screeching halt and drive home. Needless to say, I jumped right into bed and passed out when I got home.

The next morning, I woke up feeling sluggish and brandishing a headache from the night before. I didn’t do much, but watch movies and drink some Fruit Smoothies, Juice and water. I did have enough energy to get up and make my own version of a Strawberry Salad for lunch and for dinner, Mike got take out from The Outback Restaurant. I ordered a Baked Potato and had some more of my Strawberry Salad.
