Hits and Misses

Today's shopping trip was a success for the most part; we started at Bed, Bath and Beyond where I got a comfy blanket for my bed, and a stockpot for my pasta! Then we headed to Target, where I found most of what was on my list- I was a bit disappointed when I couldn't find the color I wanted for my bed sheets, but I did find a cool breakfast chiller, some spatulas, oven mitts (but no potholders!!), an organic bath loofah, method cleaning supplies, towels and some new running capris. It was a good shop, but I got SO hungry a couple hours in, I immediately bought a Clif Mojo bar and snacked on it as we were looking around!

After we shopped we headed home, where I made an egg dish casserole from Oxygen Magazine's special Abs edition.

It calls for egg whites, nonfat greek yogurt, cottage cheese (i used 1%), lots of veggies (I used broccoli instead of cauliflower, mushrooms, onions and spinach) and just simple seasonings. It was sooo good! It says 6 servings, but 1 serving would be TINY so I had 2 servings, and still it was healthy and low fat. On the side we had fresh mini wheat ciabatta breads, that we dipped in 2tsp garlic infused olive oil. I also had a handful of carrots (not pictured) and was all set!

I'm still feeling a bit hungry... and I think it's part tiredness, part hormones (I'm craving chocolate like crazy!) so I might have a snack in a while, otherwise I'm just going to relax here tonight, watch a movie, maybe read some and get to bed EARLY!!
