I am trying to write this with a Bootsy tail under my left wrist. It is difficult, but nothing can stop me from blogging!!!
For some afternoon snacks today, I had a peach and a Nature Valley “oats ‘n’ honey” bar. I have always enjoyed these bars. They are higher in calories than most granola bars, but you get TWO. Something about getting TWO always made them that much more tastier 😉
Except they are messy to eat and leave crumbs all over my keyboard
Day 2 of Advanced Dinner Planning meant that we were having vegetarian pizza for supper! The last time I made pizza, I made enough dough for two and froze the other half. I defrosted the dough over night in the fridge so it was all ready for me to roll out as soon as I got home from work. A friend of my hubby’s, who is so frequently mentioned on this blog that perhaps he should have his own nickname?, lent us his pizza stone. I have never used a pizza stone but have only heard good things.
The pizza turned out great! I am always antsy when slicing a homemade pizza, afraid that the dough will get stuck to the pan or be too floppy, but this was easy to slice and nicely crisp.
This is just a whole wheat pizza crust topped with tomato sauce, sliced summer squash, broccoli, mushroom, red pepper, grated part-skim mozzarella, and a bit of dried oregano and basil.
Afraid that half of a pizza wouldn’t be filling enough – yes, half a pizza ISN’T enough for me – I also made us Green Monsters. I have said it before and I will say it many times again: frozen mango just MAKES the Green Monster!
- 2 cups of 1% milk
- 2 sliced frozen bananas
- 1 cup of sliced frozen mango
- Large handful of spinach
This was almost like soft serve ice cream at first. I know that banana soft serve is majorly popular right now, but I would like to first try it by mixing in frozen mango as well. Add a touch of coconut milk and I think we’d be really onto something! Hmmm…
For “dessert”, I am having a cup of coffee and will likely have a brownie and/or some chocolate.
This is my Tinkerbell mug that my parents bought me in Orlando this year!
I usually prefer mugs made out of pottery, but this one spoke to me…
When they first gave me this, I was experiencing first trimester nausea and couldn’t bear to even look at a cup of coffee. For a while, I associated this mug with nausea and couldn’t use it! I am glad that time of my life has passed.
Wow, that was a random tidbit of useless information!
Here is something that is anything but useless…
