Yes, I do eat dinner.  A few people, one in particular, often ask me what I eat at night.  So, here you go:

I’d been wanting to make something similar to VeggieGirl’s (Happy Birthday VG!!!) B-S-Cubed Dish, and after seeing Gliding Calm’s PB2 covered veggies, I decided the time had come…I would finally use my last few precious ounces of PB2, aka peanut butter dust.  Ever since banning myself from online nut butter orders, I had literally been hoarding what remained in my last jar. So, I knew I wanted veggies with PB2, but I needed some protein as well.  Enter the brilliant Peanut Butter Boy and his recipe for Peanut Roasted Chickpeas.  I served the chickpeas over roasted kale with baked sweet potato wedges, and PB2.  Chris always wants meat with dinner, and so I threw a couple slices of bacon on his plate. We were both very happy. :)

After enjoying dinner so much, I took another cue from Peanut Butter Boy for my breakfast.  Using my leftover roasted chickpeas, I made a quick trail mix with raw walnuts and raisins and used it as a topping for this morning’s oat bran.

Thanks Peanut Butter Boy.  It’s about time I made one of your recipes – so good!  My breakfast held me over until I got home for lunch at 2 PM!  7 whole hours – love oat bran!

As soon as I arrived home, Leroy The Mailman was knocking at my door with this box of goodies:

Katie, I love you. :)

Words cannot express the happiness in my soul when I opened this package from Chocolate Covered Katie!  After expressing extreme jealousy over Katie’s Artisana collection, she was kind enough to offer so send me some.  When she asked if there was anything else I wanted to try that I could not find in Nashville, I immediately demanded asked her if she could also send me some PB & Co. Mighty Maple.  Katie, thank you so much for everything, and I love the Kroger coupon book as it includes some of my favorite products!

I of course had to sample the goods right away.  So, after slamming down a little Humbecue Salmon Salad, I cooked 1 serving of hot buckwheat cereal and served it with Oikos Greek yogurt, 1 spoonful each of Mighty Maple and Cocoa Bliss, and cinnamon.  Wow – both products are definitely hide from husband worthy.  Sorry CD, but I’ve seen the damage you can do to a jar of PB! :)

Again, Katie, I love you. :)

As promised, here is a picture of me, Justine, and our boys men from our double date this past Saturday.  For a full recap, check out Justine’s blog!

Justine, can't wait to hang out again!

So, I’ve been going to the yoga studio almost everyday since my workshop ended, and I continue to love yoga more and more.  However, I think there was one too many spinal twists last week as my back has been bothering me.  I took the weekend off and went to a power yoga class this morning. Coming out of Triangle Post hurt!  I may take the rest of the week off and cross-train.  We’ll see.

Don’t forget to stop by Meghann’s Blogger Bake sale today, Monday, April 6th!

Off to enjoy some more Cocoa Bliss before my hubby gets home. Just kidding CD – I’ll share. :)
