Let me first start off first, by showing you our friends Josh & Erika’s newest addition to their family:
Bronx was the runt of her litter, and the breeder said she was actually going to “do away with her” if nobody took her. Can you believe that?!? Luckily, they saved the day, and now we have this cute boxer face to look at.
Not only did I have cute baby Bronx to enjoy last night, but I was also able to enjoy some delicious S’MORES! I apologize, I didn’t take a picture, but my s’more layers went a little somthin’ like this:
-lightly toasted marshmallow
-thin BROWNIE slice
Oh yes! I put a brownie on my s’more! SO much more fun than conventional chocolate. ;) For me, I’d much rather prefer a “gourmet” s’more, which my friends will tell you I’m definitely known for. Some of my favorite s’more fillers would have to be:
-Peanut butter cups
-Strawberry jam + strawberry slices
And then if there happens to be rice krisipes or toffee bits near me – watch out – because I’m going to roll my melted marshmallow right through ‘em! Oh yes, I love my s’mores. I think my friend Josh coined me perfectly last night by saying “I think you’ve got to be one of the healthiest, unhealthy people I know.” Heyyy, we’re allowed to splurge every now and then, right? Just keep that healthy balance in check – it’s not like I’d recommend having gourmet s’mores every night. They’re a special treat
This morning I woke up experiencing some pretty bad hip pain (BOOO) so I kept the workout a little on the lighter side with my favorite 45 minute treadmill walk. I upped almost all of the speeds to try and really get the most out of it, and I’d say it definitely did the trick. I finished up with lots of stretching, especially with the hips.
I had an odd craving for savory this morning, so I concocted my own personal creation of Starbucks’ egg white spinach feta wrap.
I sauteed up a big handful of spinach, along with some sun-dried tomatoes, then added in 2 egg whites. Once things were cooked up, I filled up a whole wheat LaTortilla Factory wrap, and topped it all off with some reduced-fat feta cheese. It was actually ridiculously easy to make and totally tasty! Starbucks ain’t got nothin’ on me!
On the side, I also enjoyed some fresh pineapple. I seriously LOVE pineapple – why do I not buy it more often??
This morning, I’m actually headed to Starbucks (ironically, right?) to meet up with a local reader, Kaitlyn. Should be a good time – I’m looking forward to it!
Question for the Morning:
What would be your “gourmet s’more” creation? Let’s see who can get creative!
