This weekend was an overload of food, friends, family and Birthdays. I had some of this, and this, and then today ended with a ridiculous amount of sweet treats.Today we had an Easter Family Feat at my Auntâ€™s house. I decided to bring two of my favorite appetizers and some yummy strawberries.
Easy Chili Cheese Dip: Light Cream Cheese, Fat Free Turkey Chili, and light cheddar cheese.
Tofu Spinach Artichoke Dip:
1 package (1 lb) light silken tofu, drained
1 package (8 oz) neufchÃ¢tel light cream cheese
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
3 cloves garlic, halved
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 package (9 oz) frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and finely chopped
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
I had a little bit of everything fruit, veggies, some dip and some of my Aunts broccoli salad. I need to get this recipe!
I couldnâ€™t help but snack more on the dips, and eat lotâ€™s of these little bad boys. Mini Egg Whoppers! Why is Easter CANDY soooo good?!
Some of the familyâ€¦
My Nephew Baby Tyler, and my Cousin Celina. Donâ€™t you love our Easter Baskets?! My family has an Easter egg hunt for the little ones, teenagers, and even ADULTS!!! SO FUN, I felt like I was 10 again.
It couldnâ€™t have been a clearer day! I just loved watching my bros run around and find eggs. They were so funny:)
I finally got in a meal, I loaded the plate with turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, and a little of Grandmas famous mashed potatoes. I felt like I was at Thanksgiving all over again.
We also celebrated birthdays! My Grandpaâ€™s birthday is on the 19th, my cousin Kim’s Birthday is on the 20th as well as mine:)
I had a little bit of both, blackberry cobbler(ate 1/4 of it) and 1/2 of this wonderful banana cream pie!! I forgot how much I love banana cream pie:) I think ALL THE CANDY GOT TO ME!!!!
It turned out to be a wonderful Easter celebration with the Family, I just love holidays!
I am sitting at home right now watching The Biggest Loser feeling like crap, I think I had my limit of sweets for the MONTH!!!! My body does not like all this sugar in my body, I shall be on full detox mode this week.
I have a big week ahead, only 5 more days till I leave to Boston and 7 days until the Marathon and my Birthday. This week will be focused on strength training and light running, nothing too intense. I want to eat as clean as possible and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. I am also watching one of my students all week which will be crazy, but the extra cash will come in handy for my Boston trip🙂
This week was really stressful and more then I wanted to handle but I am praying this week I would focus on the positives and do some major meditating and refocusing. YOGA here I come! Well I gotta get that check list crossed off so night friends!!
How was your WEEKEND??
