Eats, eats everywhere and snowed in
I figured since I bothered to take pics of my dinners last week, I should probably share them.

|Chili with cornbread|
|Spinach ricotta ravioli with a side of brussels.|
We had two movies to fit in that night so it was Trader Joe's frozen ravioli and a side of brussels. 10 minutes and dinner is ready.

I love orange roughy. That is all.
The weekend was spent being snowed in most of the time.
Before the snow hit, we decided I would be the restaurant and I had a hankering for Cheesecake Factory's good ol' days when they carried Mile High Meatloaf. They stopped carrying it about 10 years ago and still have a different version but it's nowhere near the old one. So I decided to search the web, got the recipe (or a reasonable rendition) and remade the dish.
Yes, it was a bit much at just under 1000 calories but it was our high cal day and it was well planned. Cheesecake Factory's version clocked in at well over 1700 calories and 1600+ milligrams of sodium. Mine was 975 calories and 940mg of sodium so I call that a pretty good makeover. It's not something we can have all the time of course but to satisfy that old craving, I'm down with this version!
The next day we found ourselves under a total of 7ish inches of snow. We decided our workout would be snowshoeing and it was a great outing. Before we headed out into the weather and crappy roads, I made a pepper jack and cheddar grilled cheese and tomato soup (for me- chicken soup for him). It was the perfect thing to get the bones prepared for the great outdoors!
Sometimes the universe has a way of telling you to slow down, enjoy time with your favorite guy/gal and snows you in. I think I rather like being forced to slow down with my favorite guy.
What did you do this weekend?
