So pretty much after lunch today, Court and I came home and passed out for about 3 hours. LOL, I love♥ a good nap that can just knock you out like that! That is when you know your body needed it. And it’s Friday, we’re gonna be working all weekend, you know take advantage of that spare time. After making a Tuna melt yesterday for dinner, I thought of another great meal. Tonight we made a healthier version of a Tuna Casserole, with all the ingredients pictured below.
After mixing all ingredients, it was put in the oven at 375 for about 15 min.
Viola! It turned out great, and randomly paired was a piece of smart balance buttered toast and Grapes 🙂
Simple. Easy. Delicious. Friday.
After dinner, our mom gotta kind of mad at us for not doing the yard work she asked us to do earlier which was to pick up all the leaves under the tramp and along the fence whoops! lol So after the lecture we headed out to the backyard with a trash bag and tried to pick up all of those leaves ASAP, I mean we did have some plans, and it is Friday night, I mean Come on Mom? Really?
When the yard was all leave-free, we got the okay, then headed to Stella’s Coffee House for a fun night with the older sister. This evening’s flavor was a Non-fat White Chocolate Mocha. And look, they even have Heart Thrive’s there. So Court and I split the Apple pack. This was our first time trying these, and they are yum yum for the tum tum.
As soon as we picked up our warm drink, we wanted to go around the corner to Washington Park. We took about an hour walk all through the park and around Smith Lake.
It was beautiful, so many people we’re out bike riding, and the weather felt perfect.
Here we are on the dock. I am on the left, and Court is on the right.
These houses are really classic old, and so awesome! Our older sister Karstee wants to move over here, and I think one day I would too. This area is right by DU and the Cherry Creek area.
There were Geese everywhere, and we were all a little afraid that they might attack us. Lol, nope. Glad to report they did not.
And would you look at the root of that TREE! okay, random but Karstee told me to take a picture so I did.
In the mail today, we tore open Goji cookie HEAVEN 🙂 There was this fabulous package from Gourmet Goji!
Here is their Story(From the site):
At Goji Gourmet, we love scrumptiously healthy organic foods and have super-charged our favorite family recipes with goji berries to create goji-licious guilt-free gourmet snacks.

~The first cookie we wanted to try was Cherry Cacao
Verdict: MMM, who knew Goji is so good, esp in cookies. These were soft, chocolaty, and had a muffin like texture. And we like them a lot. Goji seems great to bake with!
And on the package it says that “goji berries have more antioxidants than BLUEBERRIES! What? I never knew that! So I guess you learn something new everyday.
**The nutrition stats on these babies is 2 cookies for 50 Calories, not to shabby**
Look at all those flavors, can’t wait to try more. YUM-O, haha jk totally not Rachael Ray, but these were featured on her show as the snack of the day. lol
