Had a little outdoor time with the “kids” today. It was cold, but mild compared to a typical February day. We didn’t stay out long, but we got some fresh air.

Stuart got cold and this is how he stays warm. Killian on the other hand was not affected by the cold at all, he just loves being outdoors.

Glad it was a nice day, I love to watch them run around.

Today I tried these, and I fell kinda hard for them, there are these amazing gobs of white chocolate in the bar, and they are so crunchy. I think I found a new #1 snack.

Feeling like I hit the jackpot when I went to Meijer’s instead of Kroger’s last week and I found one of my favorite products. I have made these noodles before when ever I am able to find them, and I really enjoy them. I can’t believe these have only been 5 miles from me all this time and I didn’t know it. So here’s how dinner came together. I roasted up some tofu and boiled up these noodles and added some flavor.

I marinate the tofu with 1/3 cup of lime juice, 1/3 cup of soy sauce and 2 teaspoons of Asian sesame oil overnight, which is the preferred method, but if your pressed for time 2 hours seems to work at getting all the flavor’s to do its thing.  Roast at 450 degrees for 35 minutes.

The noodles only need to boil for 3 minutes, you then drain and rinse the noodles. Then start adding some flavors. A splash of Rice Vinegar, a splash of Soy Sauce, a teaspoon of Black Bean Sauce, a little bit of garlic and some seaweed, sesame seeds.

Look at how golden they get after they roast, they are so flavorful and I love the zesty bite from the lime juice.

I Roasted the other half of my broccoli and cauliflower and cut up a fresh orange pepper.

Loving the bright orange color, I just had to add this, and I really loved the fresh crispy texture it added to the dinner.

In the end I mixed up everything on my plate and dug in.

Before dinner I completed a 45 minute elliptical workout.  Then I did this circuit I found on Pintrest. I could not wait to try it, and let me say this, burn baby burn. The side plank hip lifts are truly challenging. I love the combination of abs and legs on the same day.  I got this workout off one of my favorite bloggers Pintrest page, Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers.
