Cleaning Out The Fridge

Quick post my friends. Just got back from the doctor, and everything is looking good thus far. The HEABlet’s heartbeat sounded like music to my ears today. :) Our next appointment will involve a glucose screening to make sure I haven’t developed gestational diabetes. Apparently, I have to drink some kind of sugary liquid as soon as I arrive at the doctor’s office. I asked if I could just eat a Snickers bar instead. Hehe. The nurse said no. :(

Anyway, I have another day filled with home projects, errands, and thank you card writing. I’m also trying to squeeze in a few clients this week before we leave town. For those of you that don’t know, I’m a massage therapist, but had to quit working early in my first trimester due to come complications. When those all cleared up, I just felt so awful that I stopped working altogether. However, now that I’m feeling better, I’m starting to see a few clients once again. I love my job, and it feels good to be back!

I have managed to avoid going to the grocery store this week. The pickings around here are slim, but I’ve come up with some creative solutions…

Yesterday, I celebrated Waffle Wednesday with some chocolate ice-cream in a waffle cone. OK, so it was a bowl of chocolate protein ice-cream with two toasted Nature’s Path Flax Plus Waffles with Figs on the side, but just as good.

Nothing like a little waffle dipping action!

Lunch was something new and kind of random…

I toasted two corn tortillas and topped them with a layer of Trader Joe’s refried beans with salsa. I then added a cooked egg to each, but something was missing. They needed enchilada sauce or something. So, I did a quick search and found Gena’s recipe for tomato tahini dressing. Perfect, except I subbed MaraNatha’s sunflower seed butter for the tahini and added just a pinch of guar gum to thicken the mix. This combo was quite delicious – so good in fact, that I think I will have it for lunch again today.

We’re having dinner at a friend’s house tonight, and I’m going to attempt to make a frittata to bring with us. So, many thanks to all of you who sent me recipes on my egg post. Wish me luck. :)

Are you a cone or cup kind of person when it comes to ice-cream? My favorite is soft serve in a cake cone. Love that last bite of the cone!
