Therefore, I reached for what I truly desired......CEREAL! From my Cereal Stash, I combined Honey Nut Little Bites and Honey Rice Puffins and drenched them in Light Vanilla SILK.
X2 of course!
I then read blogs, wrote a food review for http://www.iateapie.net/, looked into online jobs (more on that later) and ate way too many Triscuit Thin Crisps! Those darn triangles are so addicting!
Eventually, I made my way to the gym and walked on the treadmill at an incline of 10 for 50 minutes while watching GILMORE GIRLS! :P
Upon arriving home and taking care of the pups, my tummy started grumbling! I opened the fridge to find a sweet potato and remembered this COMFORTING meal that is quick and AWESOME! After finding some Amy's Chili in the packed freezer, I was all set.
I zapped the Sweet Potato until tender, cut it in half, cut the halves in half and then cut them into cubes.
Topped with a slice of 2% Cheddar Cheese......
Finished off with steamy Amy's Chili mixed with a handful of fresh spinach on the stove top....
Which smothers the cheese and makes for a melty and most delicious meal!
As full as I was, I wanted a baby slice of my pie. This was teeeny (the front was so thin it couldn't even hold the crust!). I plan on having a larger slice later while my mom and I battle it out with a few intense games of Sequence.
I was getting the pie out of the freezer and slicing a tiny sliver. Here is the conversation that took place:
Mom: That looks good! What's in it? Do you share? (haha!) Dad might like a slice.
Me: Of Course! It's Cool Whip
& Pudding! Lot's of hard work went into this baby! ;) Oh and a few banana
Dad (hurries over
to see what's up...we have about the same degree of sweet tooth...no, mine's
BIGGER!) : So what's in it? (My family is always weary of my food choices
and cooking because I like to experiment!)
Me: Just Pudding & Cool
Dad: That sounds good. It's two
things I recognize. I'll try it.*****He liked it by the way and thought the
bananas added a little textural element (my words, not his!)....but who wouldn't
I just love how wary people are of "health food" (What are you afraid of guys!?...of course, not YOU guys! lol). I am working on moving my family out of their comfot zone! It's fun!
What about your family?
P.s. I have two pups, not one....although they look mighty similar! They are my two baby girls! ;) The lovely Erica got confused (and rightfully so!) by my last post with her comment: "Love that Owell wanted the Z bar- too cute!"
I read the comment a few times and was confused until I looked back at my post. I meant Oh Well,....not Owell! So I can see how she got confused! Her name is Molly and the one who fell asleep on my computer is her sister, Abbey! lol! It gave me a good laugh!
