Happy Thursday! We’re only 2 days to the weekend!
It is absolutely GORGEOUS outside. Right now we’re enjoying that perfect kind of weather that makes you want to stay outside all day. Yesterday after work I spent some time out on the deck while the pets ran around and I
helped watched Riley grill some steaks and shrimp.
The babies LOVE outside play time!
Since it was so nice outside, we decided to eat our dinner out on the deck. We had sirloins, shrimp, corn, and rosemary roasted potatoes.
Not surprisingly, I got full halfway through my steak. My eyes are always bigger than my stomach!
Dessert was definitely the highlight of our dinner. I keep meaning to make some peach scones every time I buy peaches, then they just disappear. Last night, they disappeared for a GOOD reason!
Grilled Peaches with Cool Whip Topping
Before…2 lovely ripe peaches
After: Grilled, peachy deliciousness
Here’s how Riley made them (serves 2):
- 2 ripe peaches, split and pitted
- 4-5 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Fat-free Cool Whip
Melt the butter in the microwave, then stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Dip the cut sides of the peaches into the mixture then lay face-down on a grill over medium heat. Cook until grill marks appear and peaches are soft, about 10 minutes.
Serve with a generous dollop of Cool Whip and a small drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
Workout & Breakfast
Today I got up nice and early and made my way to the gym for some cardio and upper body strength. After 25 minutes on the treadmill, I grabbed some dumbbells to do the following workout.
Nice and quick! Since I generally don’t love working my upper body, I keep it as short as possible.
At home, I pulled out some overnight oats I’d made last night and topped them with some coconut flavored almonds and dried cranberries.
I’m looking forward to today because we’re expecting some more gorgeous weather. Hopefully I can get outside some during the work day and enjoy the cooler breeze.
Have a great day!
