Lots of creations!

This morning I woke up and cried a little. It was 54 degrees and I was in PA not in FL. I thought for sure it was a nightmare, but nope, it was real. I went to make coffee and Abram reminded me that we don't have any creamer....I cried a little more, haha! We needed to grocery shop BAD so we went down to Sheetz, grabbed a coffee and went shopping! After we got home we were both hungry (we had to go to 3 different grocery stores to get all the stuff we wanted) it was almost 10:30 so we made something quick~ whole wheat waffles with lite syrup.
After breakfast I went over to my cousin Gina's house to babysit Helena & Tiya while she ran a couple of errands. We played outside in Helena's new car, she just turned 3 :)
I left there and went home to grab some lunch with Abram around 12:00, we had a date for the gym at 1pm so I wanted to eat a little while before we left. Today's lunch was vanilla greek yogurt, Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal, strawberries & grapes. DELICIOUS. I missed this combo!
I also read Women's Health while I ate. I have a lot of magazines to catch up on from vacation. At the gym today I ran 2 miles in 18 minutes, then hit the weight room for about 25 minutes. Glad to be back at the gym! After the gym we came home and I did some laundry and made some of Julie's Peanut Butter Granola! It was really yummy, thanks for the recipe Julie!
Tonight's dinner we grilled. I wanted to recreate a portabello/red pepper wrap that I had in Florida at a restaurant called Snapper's.  It was so incredible I had to try to make one of my own. Abram grilled up some burgers for him, and a portabello mushroom & some red peppers for me. Dinner~La Tortilla Factory wrap, Laughing Cow swiss cheese wedge, pesto sauce, portabello cut in slices & 1/2 a red pepper in slices. IT WAS SO YUMMY!!!!!!

On the side I boiled up some corn on the cob, which was really good too! All in all, a great day of food. That's one good thing about being home....ya don't have to eat out!! Well, Abram and I are going to take Misha for a walk and then I am going to read some more of The Help.  
Question: Do you try and recreate your favorite recipes from restaurants?
