Weekend and Monday Food Pictures

As promised, here are some pictures. These are flowers that I bought at the grocery store on Friday. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers and these are so pretty with the pink and yellow flowers.
Here is a project I had done for Stephen. It's a map of the chain of lakes that his family's cabin is on along with some pictures from last summer. It was supposed to be a surprise for him but he insisted on working from home the day I took it to the frame shop so he got to help plan out the colors and matting. I got it done for 60% off, it was still over $300, but it looks really nice. I can't imagine paying the full price of almost $800 for it so I'm very happy I went when the sale was going on.

(Sorry it's in the wrong direction.)

Now, here's Monday's breakfast. 2 cups of fresh pineapple (so yummy and I've been craving it like mad lately) with a homemade Whole Wheat Berry Nut scone.

And, a closeup of the scone with its blueberries, cranberries and sunflower seeds. Yummy!!

Monday's mid-morning snack of fruit. Yesterday's mix was 1/2 pear, 1/2 banana, 1/2 mango, and 1/2 cup of strawberries.

And, Monday's lunch. I had carrots and green/red/yellow pepper strips with ranch veggie dip (made with sour cream and a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix), 1/2 pita (leftover from Sunday's lunch out), and pumpkin yogurt (1/2 cup vanilla yogurt, 2 tbsp. canned pumpkin, and lots of cinnamon). It took me forever to eat all those veggies and they were so delicious!

Sometimes for lunch I like "snacky" type foods instead of a "meal"--this was great yesterday. For a snack yesterday afternoon I had an orange and 1 serving of Annie's Bunny Grahams (no pic). Last night for dinner we had Turkey Sausage and Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups and Roasted Asparagus (no pic but I'm having leftovers for lunch so you'll get a pic tomorrow!).

Mmmm on the pumpkin yogurt. I'm going to try that this afternoon for a snack.

Good luck with your challenge and enjoy your run today.
