Weekend Bliss

February 7, 2010

Friday night was fun.  I made a new recipe from my Clean Eating magazine that turned out great and then we watched the season premiere of Lost.  HOLY CRAP was Lost good!! Really glad for the recap show…forgot a lot of what happened last season.

I made the Flank Steak Roll from the magazine with a few changes based on what I had on hand and made some roasted potatoes on the side.  It turned out fabulous!

It was basically a flat piece of meat that I cut down the center to make 2 pieces and topped with a combo of bread crumbs, a little balsamic vinegar, garlic, crushed red pepper, spinach and just a bit of a garlic mozzarella we had in the fridge.

Here is what Georgie was doing while I was cooking:

Saturday morning was work…ick!

Came home to the most lazy and relaxing afternoon though.  We all sat down in our “cave” and snuggled.

Seriously Georgie slept like that for hours!! I slept for about 2 hours as well.

Sunday morning was a bright and early start…I got up and read the paper and had some coffee then set off for the gym around 7:20 so I could get  spot in spin class.

The HARDCORE bikers are in there at 8 AM Sunday morning….it was fun and very very hard.

Then I went upstairs and hit some upper body strength training and walked a mile around the track.  WHOO! Great Sunday morning pre-Superbowl workout.

I made some buffalo chicken dip for the Super Bowl party we are going to and now we are giving the dogs a bath.  That is always a traumatic day around here!
Hope you are all doing something fun for the big game whether you actually enjoy football or just watch for the commercials.

    Have fun at the party! I’m pretty sure this year I will be more interested in the commercials than the game… I really have no preference who wins this one. Lame, I know…
