18 Jul

Today has been a pretty relaxing day, I broke into my box of Kashi Go Lean Crisp! for breakfast and made a banana parfait with Trader Joe’s 2% Plain Greek Yogurt

I shouldn’t have eaten something so big, I completely forgot I was meeting a friend at 11A for brunch at Pewter Rose Bistro. I normally wake up so early on the weekends but slept in until 9A today so I could’ve had a banana but this was still delicious. Regardless, I’ve never been to Pewter Rose and have heard raves about their weekend brunch so it was on like Donkey Kong!!

They serve you fresh, warm butterscotch scones-nothing wrong with that

I was contemplating getting either the Mashed Potato Omelet (cheddar cheese, bacon,scallions, sour cream) or Banana Fosters French Toast (rum butter, sweet banana cream, whipped cream,maple syrup) but french toast always wins!

The french toast was delectable and had a rich banana cream on the inside (it reminded me of the honey walnut cream cheese at Einsteins) I wanted to lick the plate but remained a lady and left one bite on my plate but everything else was happily devoured. I will be going back fo sho!

Lincoln is a tad tired from posting yesterday

I got some cute buys at Target

Yes, I know I am 30 years old but will forever be a child of the 80s

Polka dot notecards for $1!!

Found the Cardio Burn Yoga DVD Mari gave me when I visited NYC

Dinner was random, my stomach is still acting up a bit and I was full from the fabulous french toast I had earlier on.

I cut up two whole wheat tortillas, brushed with extra virgin olive oil, pepper and chili powder and baked at 300 degrees for 15 minutes or until crisp

Put some soup on the stove top

The “chips” came out perfect and I paired with Trader Joe’s Spicy Hummus

After a few chips, I wasn’t feeling the hummus (I don’t think I’ve ever said that in my life) so I just ate the chips plain and they were still terrific. I broke into my newly purchased bag of Trader Joe’s Wasabi Peas. I’ve seen bloggers writing about these and finally caved in and bought a bag, they were delicious!

Pretty much a boring day but I am feeling better and hope this week at work goes quickly. I am driving to Indianapolis on Friday (with Lincoln) and working overtime throughout the week so I won’t have to use any vacation time to leave early on Friday. Hope everyone had a fabulous (and perhaps more exciting) weekend than I did!

    the best thing about french toast is how different it can taste with a few changes or additions- like rum butter! mmmmmm rum butter and maple syrup…. mmmmmm!!

      You can’t go wrong with rum butter or nanners—they both make everything better 🙂

    I looooove scones! yours looks great and delicious! mmmmm! btw, does your pita chips get crunchy after you bake ’em? i’ve baked ’em before but they don’t get that crunchy. i might need to cook it longer.

      Yep, I was a little worried they would be soggy with the extra virgin olive oil I put on them but they turned out perfect! Maybe try flipping them as well?

    The butterscotch scone looks fantastic. And french toast! What is it about breakfast food that just makes life that much better?

    I love French toast! So good!

    Making my own chips out of tortillas and baking them is quickly becoming one of my favorites! I like them so much better then regular chips! So good! They are also great sprinkled with a little cinnamon and sugar!!

    • simplyshaka July 20, 2010 at 9:56 pm #

      I was thinking about that when I was making the ones for the hummus dip. Anything with cinnamon and sugar is good–especially homemade. And if whipped cream happened to make it’s way into the mix, I would be in heaven!

    the french toast looks amazing! I dont know if i could leave a bite behind. I feel bad for it!
    I love wasabi peas though sometimes it burns my nostrils- i love it.

    I love me some rainbow bright!!

    I wish I liked french toast! That looks so perfect! At restaurants I always look longingly at people’s french toast (that’s right, i’m that creeper that looks at what everyone else is eating) then I remember that it has crusty egg and look around for someone eating pancakes or waffles.

    • simplyshaka July 20, 2010 at 9:55 pm #

      I do the same thing–you can’t take me anywhere!

    Your homemade chips look great! I need to do that. Love Rainbow Brite. Do you ever watch The Soup? If so, did you see when Joel McHale dressed up like Rainbow Brite. Hilarious!!!

    • simplyshaka July 20, 2010 at 9:54 pm #

      What? Joel McHale as Rainbow Brite? Hello foreplay LOL

      I just got my cable back so I will have to watch out for that……or I could check out that little site called YouTube!

    Breakfast overload!! Looks soooo good 🙂 Also, I’m a HUGE fan of polka dots. And stationary is just so fun. I actually just bought insanely reduced wiener dog journals from PetSmart haha. It was practically free. 🙂

    • simplyshaka July 20, 2010 at 9:53 pm #

      I know, it truly validates there is never such thing as too much breakfast!

      Polka dots rock and so does clearance stuff. I go to Target and SteinMart and somehow justify to myself that they are good buys. I have so many random notepads all over the place!

    Words escape me after seeing that vision of French Toast. OMG. Serious food porn moment. Like I need to be alone with my fantasy now. DAYUM!!
