Hi friends! Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day.

How was your weekend? We had a pretty great one over here. Friday after school and work we had our usual park time, then came home for dinner. We were greeted by some goodies in the mail. We all always look forward to my monthly Love with Food Box (<- use my link for 50% off your first box) and we totally broke into some of those snacks as soon as we opened it.

The evening winded down pretty early, and I was in bed by 9:15. It was everything I wanted after a busy week.

Saturday started with teaching class and the usual chores. I took my little guy grocery shopping, just he and I, and was surprised with how much input I got from him regarding what we should eat this week. He had plenty of opinions and ideas. Turns out he prefers chunky peanut butter over creamy, in case anyone was wondering. Saturday afternoon/evening, the hubs had some well-deserved adult time with a friend that was in town. The kids and I took it as an opportunity to have a little pizza party and movie time. We recently introduced them to The Lion King, and it was so fun to watch it with them and relive some childhood memories of my own.

Sunday morning marked my return to Orangetheory! Between our cold and some obligations over the past few weeks, it was actually my first OTF of the new year. It felt so good to get a great workout in!

Sunday afternoon I had my book club. Even though I hadn’t read the book, I was still really looking forward to seeing everyone and enjoying some of the awesome snacks. My contribution was pizza rolls. These are a go-to appetizer for me when I am short on time or am just not sure what to make for a party. They might not be the healthiest, but they are quick, easy and everyone loves them. All I do is roll store-bought pizza dough up with cheese and pepperoni, slice and top with a little olive oil mixed with Italian seasoning and Parmesan. Bake and serve with marinara, easy peasy.

As always, the snacks were amazing.  This is my plate.  I also had half a cookie and sampled some cake and bread pudding.  The book this month was In the Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende.  I did not read it, but from the discussion, it sounded interesting.  The actual reviews from the group were pretty mixed.

The rest of the weekend was spent hanging with the babies and getting ready for the week.

How was your weekend?  Any plans for the week?  I am off today, so enjoying a little extra kiddo time and letting myself transition into the work week.

Hope you have a great day!

  1. I bet hearing his little opinions was pretty cute. 🙂
    That dish you made sounds pretty tasty! Glad you had a good weekend.

    1. It was pretty adorable, and I think he eats better when he gets a say in what we have. Hope you had a great weekend as well!

  2. That sounds like a great weekend to me. I loved the Lion King when I was little, I love Disney until this day. Yum those pizzas & rolls look tasty. I am a sucker for pizza. I like the chunky peanut butter too, it involves more of the senses. Here’s to another great week!

    1. Thanks! About 15-20 min depending on how thick you cut them. They are so easy! I will have to check out some of her other books.

  3. Snacks at book club are great! I have mine tomorrow, and I didn’t read the book either – just didn’t have time/didn’t really appeal to me – but I’m excited to go and hang out! Plus, we’ll get the next book (it’s a library book club) so that’s another reason to go!

    Aw, I can’t wait to start sharing my favorite animated films with my niece and nephew. The Lion King is great.

      it.

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! I’m glad I’m not the only one going to bed at 9:15. This pizza rolls look amazing!
