Ka “bobs” +Carrots

Tonight I decided to skip my workout, because I needed an evening to just have fun with the Hub’s. A date night in is always worth skipping a workout for 😉

Hubby and I made Chicken Teriyaki Ka" “bobs”. Making them always make me feel like a kid again. I just love getting my hands dirty to cook, it’s so much fun playing with your food!


I added pineapple, mushrooms, bell pepper, teriyaki chicken (Lawery’s Marinade), and tomato.



Hubby’s Kabobs of course only hade pineapple and chicken. We are going to tell our kids he is allergic to vegetables 😉


Mine look so much better!!


On the grill they went for about 10 minutes on each side. Who said healthy eating was hard?!


I picked up this new rice melody from F&E and have been dying to try it! It has Quinoa in it, a SUPER GRAIN!


I also made myself my new favorite mocktail. Cherry Juice+Club Soda+Limes!  



Off the grill




Dinner is served in under 30 minutes, go me!


After we finished dinner we got straight to baking. I never knew my husband was such an amazing apple peeler! Plus he was the best sous chef ever!


Remember that Morning Glory Muffin I had for a snack? Well Sherry gave me the recipe and I couldn’t wait to make them. I just love carrot and raisin’s in anything!


I did adapt the recipe a bit.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

adapted from allrecipes.com


2 cups all-purpose flour (I used half whole wheat flour)

1 1/4 cups white sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups shredded carrots

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

1 apple – peeled, cored and shredded

3 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil (used one cup of apple sauce should have used only 1/2 a cup rest oil)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.

2.In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the carrot, raisins, nuts, coconut, and apple.

3.In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, oil (I used apple sauce), and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into the carrot/flour mixture, just until moistened. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.

4.Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.


Ready to enjoy!



After we were done baking we had to make our date night complete with some Fro-Yo!


Time to get to bed. I have 3 alarms set! I am going for a 6 mile run with friends and then doing 4 on my own. Wish me luck!
