Sensational Sunday!

I kicked off Sunday by eating some oatmeal.


1/3 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup almond milk

Sprinkle of carob chips

Natural PB

I discovered some teeny cucumbers growing in the planters on my patio!


Powered by Oatmeal I installed the bike computer I bought in the US last weekend.IMG_4914

When we got back to the car I was ready to chill on the “beach” with some coconut water and a Carrot Cake Cliff Bar.



Overall I thought the Cliff bar was good and tasted like carrot cake. I prefer the simpler ingredients of the LARABARS but this was good for something different. The only thing I didn’t like was the hard pieces of carrot. I ate half the bar in the afternoon and was satisfied until our 8pm dinner.


Back at home we fired up the Grill and tried out some Presidents Choice ribs I got for free from The Superstore for spending over $100 in groceries.

I’ve only made ribs from scratch before but as these were free there was nothing to lose!


The ribs are fully cooked and all you need to do is heat them up, which I did on the BBQ (you can see the boys shish-kabobs on the right).


According to the package the ribs would fall right off the bone and were in a beer and chipotle marinade.

I have to admit I wasn’t sure how I would like these since I’m not a huge BBQ sauce fan but on the flip side I enjoy most P.C. brand products. I recently tried a P.C. chicken burger at a BBQ which was the best pre-made chicken burger I’ve ever had, it was just like a thin chicken breast instead of an oversize, chewy chicken nugget.


These ribs did NOT disappoint! They were so quick to “cook” and SO tender. Even better they were NOT fatty and they tasted like they were from a restaurant – I could have eaten the whole thing myself!

Would I buy them in the future? They are definately great if you don’t want to spend hours making ribs yourself, so if they weren’t too expensive I would pick them up for a treat.

Tomorrow is a holiday in Canada but I plan to work for a few hours as I’m working ahead to cover my vacation.
