Epic weekend with surprise ending

July 18, 2010 at 6:56 pm 10 comments

I guess I will try to keep the words to a minimum and let the pictures speak for themselves!  These are in chronological order…

Saturday lunch at Zooma Zooma Cafe!

Bianca thin crust pizza with brie, spinach, pumpkin seeds, and goat cheese

Watermelon for an afternoon snack

A tall non-fat Cafe Mocha from Starbs with the girls.  It looks like I took this picture on the set of Charlie Rose

8 week old, Ellie, my son’s future girlfriend/BFF

Picnic spread on the beach!

Gorgeous view

Dinner #1 – Roasted veggie sandwich with feta and pesto, carrots and hummus, slice of brie and cheddar, baguette slice with peach jam

Dinner #2 – Trail mix, guacamole and tortilla chips, slice of cheddar, slice of brie with peach jam on baguette slice

Chocolate mint cupcake for dessert!

Sunday breakfast – Whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a sliced peach

Green Monster, made superior by using frozen mango!

Brunch out with hubby and friend – Eggs florentine with wild mushrooms, salad, fresh fruit, home fries = heaven

Afternoon snack – Carrots and crackers with hummus

Dinner – Leftover spaghetti

A brownie for dessert!

Low-Fat, Frugal Brownies (yes, they are actually good!)

  • 1/2 cup melted chocolate
  • 1 cup of non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water

1.  Lightly grease an 8 x 8 pan and pre-heat oven to 350 F

2.  Mix chocolate, yogurt and sugar.  Then stir in remaining ingredients until mixture comes together.

3.  Pour into the baking pan and cook for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

4.  Cool completely and cut into 16 squares.

Since they are low-fat, they are a bit more spongy than your usual ooey, gooey brownies, but I really liked them!  They were very easy to slice which makes them pretty to look at.  And that’s half the battle!


It’s a boy! (If you didn’t pick up on that already by my earlier hint).  You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to tell you this!  🙂

      I don’t have a motif, but we’ve recently painted the room a pale yellow. I am going more with the “whatever we can find inexpensively or free will work best” mode of design, although I would like to get one nice painting or piece of artwork to hang on the wall. Pictures to come of course!

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
