Ugh. I am SO stuffed from our “Family Dinner”! 😕

The meal was delicious, but boy did I go overboard! I made the mistake of filling up on all of the yummy appetizers that our friends brought. 

I had a little of everything, but I chowed-down on the spinach-artichoke dip. By the time dinner was served, I wasn’t even hungry for it. 😳

For dinner tonight, I made Last-Minute Lasagna, which our friends loved! This meal is quick, easy, and a real crowd-pleaser! :mrgreen:

In the recipe, I used Napa Valley Bistro Porcini & Portabella Pasta Sauce, which had rich flavors of tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, Merlot, and herbs. It was an awesome pasta sauce! Definitely keep a look out for this one at the grocery store! 

We served homemade garlic bread with the lasagna. 

For dessert (and my upcoming birthday), my friend, Marie, baked cupcakes! She “health-ified” the recipe by using apple sauce instead of vegetable oil and egg whites instead of whole eggs. She knows what I like! 

I ended up eating 2 cupcake tops after dinner. They were SO GOOD! I might as well start my birthday week off on the right foot! 😉

I’m not going to lie, I feel pretty gross after pigging-out at dinner tonight, but what’s the point in feeling bad about it, right? I enjoyed a nice evening with good friends, ate a delicious meal, and kicked-off my birthday celebration. Not a bad night at all! 

Tomorrow is a new day. I’m planning an early-morning workout and a day of healthy eating. 

Time for bed! Good night!!!
