Since I unplug on the weekends (aka, I don’t post or read hardly any blogs at all), sometimes I struggle to get the motivation to write on Monday. Anyone else feel that way some times? I’ve been in a “blogging rut”, but I think I’m getting out of it. We’ll see. I do (finally) have a lightened up recipe to share later this week:
Super creamy low-fat spinach artichoke dip. This just might have been my dinner Sunday night.
This WAS a miscellaneous Monday post that I never got around to publishing yesterday… oops. So here’s some recent food-related things, in no particular order.
I’m obsessed with these pancakes. Consider the season’s first can of pumpkin gone. I made them Friday, Saturday, and Monday. So filling and a great puffy texture.
Changes: I used whole grain noodles, an entire bag of arugula (it wasn’t going to last much longer in my fridge), and instead of fresh mozzarella I used two wedges of Laughing Cow garlic & herb cheese. So flavorful!
Adam’s version had regular pasta, no greens, and extra parmesan. His & hers versions can be best sometimes.
Has anyone tried these bars? I’m not usually a fan of calorie-dense bars as snacks (or even meal replacements, they never keep me full) – but this one fit in to my day as a post-run refueling snack and was so delicious that I might actually buy a box.
Ugly, right? But it’s the first “mug cake” I’ve made that didn’t taste like scrambled eggs. Using PB2 and stevia made it only 170-ish calories and 10 grams of protein.
My co-worker, Angela, is the queen of baklava. And she saved me some before setting it out for the rest of the office ladies – lucky me.
The best I’ve ever tasted.
Our defrosted wedding cake tasted much better than I expected! I had forgotten that at the last minute we went with a lemon creme filling instead of raspberry. A nice surprise.
There are three separate shops within the building – one is the chocolate room (the first three photos) – filled with their amazing homemade chocolates, truffles, meltaways, barks, and more… the middle room is a gift shop, and the last is coffee and ice cream (last photo).
Hi Mom and Adam! Chocolate caramel truffle iced coffee:
Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!
