Hoppy Sundae :-)


Hello to all and Happy Easter!! Hope everyone is having a fabulous day. The sun is shining here and its a beautiful day! Not too much going on with me today, but I am hitting up a hot yoga class later and heading to Joey’s for a lovely Easter dinner πŸ™‚ I am such a blessed girl!!!

Before I forget don’t forget to enter MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!! You have until midnight tonight! I’ll announce the winner in the morning πŸ™‚

Now because I’m pressed on time, a little photo rundown of the weekend.

Friday night I made an easy dinner. I like Lent because Joey can’t eat meat on Friday’s so he’s always willing to try some meat alternatives! We decided on some meatball subs, and since Joey is Italian and his mama/grandma/etc make AWESOME meatballs, meat-free meatballs were gonna be a gamble!!

We tried out a different brand of meat-less meatballs then I have tried before

Let me tell you they were a HIT!!! Joey was really impressed, and I loved them too (but that’s not a huge surprise). I heated them up in a saucepan with Newman’s Tomato & Basil Spaghetti Sauce.

Final Product

Shredded some mozarella on the meatballs and put them on a ciabatta bun. For the salad I used spinach, roma tomatoes, walnuts, sheep’s cheese, and Newman’s Oil & Vinegar salad dressing. Dinner was awesome πŸ™‚

For a lunch I tried out another flavor of MorningStar burgers

Mushroom Lover's Burger

Let me tell you, MorningStar does not disappoint. These things were awesome!

Saturday night Joey made dinner (his are always so much cooler than mine). Β We decided on dumplings!

Dumpling filler mix: veggies, tofu, and some sauces (if anyone wants the exact mix just write me and I'll ask Joey!)

Put a little mix in the wonton wrapper

Wet the edges, fold over, and firmly press edges together

I helped make a bunch!

Finished product after they were boiled! YUM!!

We also had some edamame, salt, and soy sauce for dipping

Well, as you all know today is the end of Lent, so to celebrate Joey & I stayed up till midnight to get some ice cream!!!! It’s been too long!!!!

Joey is about to burst from excitement!

Putting off snacking till midnight was a test for me!!

Mine: Strawberry banana peanut butter sundae!

Joey's: Chocolate chip cookie dough concrete

Well that’s it from me today! Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and/or just typical Sunday!! XOXO

Oh and just for smiles here’s my handsome nephew! πŸ™‚
