I want some french toast.

5 Mar

Friday-yay!!! You finally made it and I love you.

I just woke up from a wonderful nap and sipping on some coffee. I am going midnight bowling tonight (hence the nap) which I haven’t done in forever! I am not really in a drinking mood but definitely in the mood to go have some fun and bowl! Maybe there will be some cute boys there, who knows? I can’t remember the last time I’ve been out on a Friday night.  If I do go out, it’s normally on a Saturday night so I can rest up during the day. I hate going out on Friday nights because I wake up @ 545A and being perky is hard to do after being awake for so long. I either take a nap or have to decline the offer.

But good news this morning—the Carolina Panthers cut QB Jake Delhommefinally!!!!

Jake sucks. He is a good second or third string qb but as first string-negative. John Fox (Carolina Panthers Coach) had too much loyalty to him for some reason. Peace out boy scout. Maybe now we will be a real team (although I am a Chicago Bears fan).

I started the day off with a green monster But it wasn’t too green….sad.

 I got into my car and this song came on the radio. I completely forgot  Lenny did a remake of this song and I was so happy to hear it!

I munched on a granola bar that I made last night

In honor of yesterday’s wonderful soup and sandwich lunch-I decided to repeat since I didn’t have time to cook last night.

I filled a Habanero Lime Tortilla with Garlic and Herb Laughing Cow Cheese, Dijon and Smart Deli Turkey Style Veggie Protein slices before the goodies And after I got very ambitious with my veggies –baby spinach, carrots, red onion and parsley.

Pre Veggies–

 So much that I couldn’t even wrap it and had to eat like a taco-which was fine with me!

Look at that color–love it!

The soup was good. I’m a Campbell’s girl for the most part and bought this because I had a coupon but was pleased with the flavor–even for being No MSG Added

I walked over to Harris Teeter to get some cheese and bread. They were having a BOGO sale for the cheese and 50% off their bakery bread. I took this picture on the way back while walking through the cemetary–it was a gorgeous day!

I couldn’t let the fresh bread I bought just sit in my kitchen so I made mini french toast with berries for dinner.

The Whole Wheat Petit Loaf.

Loaf, I love that word. Maybe because it sounds dirty–I dunno.

I sliced in little pieces, some of which fell apart so I was about to toss. But then I remembered I had spray butter in the fridge so decorated with that and had a pre-dinner snack. And this is why I don’t buy fresh bread. I could seriously eat the entire loaf (hehe) in one sitting.

Because I?

The slices cooking

Ok looks wise, this got a D+

But the flava?? A++!

At least it wasn’t this french toast

I never used fresh bread for french toast before and it made a world of difference

Coffee in my favorite cup

Anyone see or planning on seeing Alice in Wonderland?

 I’m not a huge Tim Burton fan but love the story and cartoon! I’m trying to round up a friend or two to go see it.

All I know is the black eyebrows and white hair are bothering me.

****A little raffle fun for y’all. Patricia is holding a raffle to raise money for the Tufts University School of Nutrition as a team member of the Presiden’ts Marathon Challenge. She is more than half way to her goal of raising $2,500 (YOU GO GIRL!) The main raffle prize is a hot Garmin Forerunner 305. Click here for more details!****

I’m watching this Ancestry show on NBC  “Who Do You Think You Are? and Sarah Jessica Parker is on it now. I am very amused that her ancestors last name was Hodge…..She co-starred with Kyle Maclachlan on Sex and The City, who now plays Orsen Hodge in Desperate Housewives. I watch too much tv, I know.

Well, time to start getting ready for tonight. Now that I think of it, today was a pretty boring day. We will need to change that tonight. Happy weekend everyone!!

21 Feb

Per my previous post title, I thought I would keep it in the spirit of R Kelly

I decided to get spicy for dinner.

I picked these up at Trader Joe’s the other day and wanted to see how they were

Not a huge fan of the flour but moderation is key.

In a bowl, I mashed up 1/2 cup of black beans, chopped onion, garlic and chile powder.

I went with quesadillas with a side of Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Tortilla Chips, salsa, guacamole, tomatoes

Habanero Lime flour Tortillas?

FABULOUS! Just enough spice and hint of lime to give it a nice flavor but not overpowering.

And the color is that of sweet potatoes!

Or an Oompa Loompa

Hmmmm. I can honestly say if they had a Oompa Loompa shaped cutter for sweet potatoes, I would buy it. How cool would that be??

I don’t know if I mentioned this or not but I got a call from my apartment complex office yesterday and someone found my work id badge that I lost the other day. I stopped by to pick it up and everything was in there—bus pass, Starbucks card (that I already canceled) and photo id. That just restored my faith in the kindness of strangers

It’s 945P and I am trying to make myself tired. I never sleep well on Sunday nights and have a feeling tomorrow is going to be a long day. However, it is supposed to be rain so that means sporting my new boots–woo hoo!

And who knows, depending on tomorrow my next post may be another R Kelly song!
