Memorial Day lunch

The hubby is working tomorrow, so we celebrated memorial day today (or yesterday not that it is past midnight) by grilling and spending time with the kids, family time.  The whole bunch of us crowded around the small patio table and ate, talked, and laughed shoulder to shoulder.  It was fantastic!

The menu included:

Steak for the two big carnivores of the family.
Turkey burgers for the *no red meat* member of the family.
Veggie burgers for the vegetarians.
Potato salad
Grilled corn on the cob
Grilled veggie packets
Chips
Dill pickles
Watermelon
Fresh strawberries

The veggie packets were a huge hit!


I mixed mushrooms, zucchini, squash, sweet onion, green bell pepper, sweet peppers, green onion, and cilantro with olive oil in a large bowl.  I used the green 21 Day Fix Containers to measure out the amount for each packet, 2 containers for each.  I wrapped the veggies in heavy duty foil, handed them to the hubby along with the fresh sweet corn on the cob and he put them on the grill for 30 minutes, turning half through cooking.  They came out perfect!  Definitely going to make that again! 

This is what my plate looked like:


A bunless veggie burger with swiss cheese and mushrooms, a veggie packet, a 21 Day Fix red container of 25 cottage cheese, a dill pickle, and a piece of sweet corn with nothing on it.  The corn was out of this world!

I better get to bed, I have to get up bright and early to do my cardio fix DVD.  Happy Memorial Day!

favorite breakfast


This has become a favorite 21 Day Fix breakfast for me.  Half of a whole wheat English muffin with a teaspoon of peanut butter and fruit on the side.  Great fuel for a busy morning.  Oh and there was a big mug of coffee and 32 ounces of water on the side :).
