I love making a title from various words used throughout the post.....have you noticed?
I have found the perfect thing to replace diet soda as my "mix-in" of choice for my seltzer water....
I popped open the bottle and took a sip.....YUM! I thought it would be bitter or overwhelmingly sweet, but it was perfect. However, I knew that my 8 bottles would FLY off of the shelf of my fridge if I didn't find a way to make them last. Well, the good thing is that POM has an intense flavor that can shine through, even when you use just a bit! I am just in love...which may be bad for my wallet when I run out of this stash!? POM is Wonderful! That must be why they decided to stick it straight into the name and copyright it that way! ;)Breakfast started out with an omelet (which by the way, was the best omelet I have ever made...it didn't stick and it got a nice brown color! MMM). I used one egg and one egg white. The filling included 1/3c lentils, chopped broccoli, chopped carrot and chopped onion....which was sauteed prior to being stuffed. I topped it all off with a bit of salsa and had a delightful "POM soda" (2oz POM mixed with ~1/2c seltzer). The filling and eggs were seasoned with my new favorite seasoning....CHILI POWDER!! Yum! This has always been in my pantry, but I have never used it before now. My mom uses is on tacos, but I have started putting it on....EvErYtHiNg!! :D
After getting ready & before heading to work (11:30-5:00), I toasted up 2 Kashi Heart to Heart Waffles and topped them with 2T Crunchy Peanut Butter and a sliced peach!
The salty PB and sweet, juicy peaches atop the doughy waffles was just plain AWESOME! After a hard working day, I was ready to put on my PJ's and hit the couch; but I sucked it up, grabbed a JamFrakas, changed and hit the road. I spent about 30 minutes at the gym in the weight room and I was glad that I went!
When I got home, I turned on the oven and pulled out the Kashi Pizza that I had from a while back (in this post). Also, I was making myself some POM soda and realized that I already had it earlier this morning.....but it's just so refreshing!! :D
Along side, I decided to use up the rutabaga that has been sitting in my fridge for quite some time. I wasn't sure what to do with it, but I knew I wanted it to be fast. So I sliced it fairly thin, microwaved it with a bit of water for 2 minutes, piled it into aluminum foil and covered it with CHILI POWDER and dots of butter.
After about 12 minutes in a 350* oven (along with the pizza), dinner was served! Let's just say that I will be getting a rutabaga during my next shopping trip...DELISH!
Then for dessert, I broke out another Emily's Desserts treat. OH. MY. GOSH! I do not even like coconut very much, but I think this cookie may be my favorite. I wrapped it in a papertowel and zapped it for 25 seconds and it felt, tasted and looked like pure, gooey deliciousness. I might as well have taken it out of the oven because it could not have tasted any better. .....And I just took the last bite....**tear**
Sorry for being MIA yesterday! I have not been able to catch up on blogs or blog myself these past few days; but tonight, I'm hunkered down with movies, my computer and POM soda...what more could you ask for?! Perhaps some popcorn?!
