The ‘Oops We Made Too Much’ Cart

So glad you guys are diggin’ the Commercial Break Workout! Did anyone give it a try yet? I may have to give it another go later this evening while Jay and I catch up on our episode of Franklin and Bash (<—love this show, btw).

Rewind to last night…I had a shift at work so I kept dinner quick and simple.


I sautéed up some broccoli, red pepper, a leftover ear of corn on the cob from Saturday, and a sliced link of chicken sausage in Italian dressing and topped it all with some crumbled feta cheese.


I honestly didn’t have too many expectations with this, since I just sort of threw it all together as I went, but this dish was killer. So, so good!

But not quite as good as the dessert we had a little while later…


While I was checking out at the grocery store the other day, I happened to pick the line that has the “Oops, we made too much!” cart right next to it. The cart usually has a bunch of stuff from the bakery for 50% off, and while it’s always rather tempting, I usually try to avoid looking through it.

Well this time, I spotted a strawberry angel food cake for $1.00, so I had to grab it. Last night, I made Jay and I a couple dessert dishes with the angel food cake, fresh strawberries and blueberries, fat-free whipped topping, a drizzle of heated up raspberry preserves, and a couple white chocolate chips.


WOW. Why do I always let myself forget just how delicious angel food cake is??

I’m not gonna lie. The thought of repeating it again for breakfast this morning was sounding mighty good, but I refrained. Instead, I brought back an old favorite…


Coffee + an egg, provolone, and raspberry jam waffle sandwich. Always a winner in my book.

Once this all digests it’s time to get goin’ on my yoga challenge…I’ve got plans to try out a new online workout, so I’ll be sure to let ya know how it goes later today!

Question for the Morning:

What bakery items, if any, would you be tempted to buy only if they were 50% off?

    For a second I thought you were talking about the Lululemon “oops we made too much” section of their website – that would definitely be one dangerous shopping cart!

    I’d stock up on whole grain baguettes or sourdough ciabattas if I ever saw those on a discounted bakery rack!

    your’s and julie’s (pb fingers) meals resemble one another’s too much! it’s too funny. i know you two have mentioned being one another’s “twin” before, so that only makes sense! 😉
    mmm angel food cake – love it!! and for a dessert option, it’s not too shabby compared to other desserts on the nutrition side of things.

    I do like angel food cake, but I tend to lean towards baked goods like breads and buns in the clearance section. That way, I am able to get what I need and just toss some of it in the freezer to thaw out at another time. I would actually love to try and make my own angel food cake sometime, definitely something I have never tried before!

    If given a choice between angel’s food cake and devil’s food cake I will almost always choose devil’s food. I love chocolate too much not to. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like strawberry shortcake. My grandfather’s favorite kind of cake is actually an angel’s food cake soaked with strawberry jello and Cool Whip I think? Something like that. Most people in my family like it, but I can’t stomach soggy textures. Same reason I don’t really like french toast.

    I would probably be tempted to buy any bakery food at 50% off, haha! I do love angel food cake with cool whip and strawberries — it always reminds me of my childhood when my Mom wanted to make a quick dessert similar to strawberry shortcake. :)

      They are great, aren’t they? I go back and forth between Eggo & Vans, but Eggo was on sale this week 😉

    I think I would be tempted to buy all of the 50% off bakery items! Haha! I love angel food cake and it’s been awhile since I had it, I don’t think I pass on the $1 price tag!

      That’s actually the brand I used the past two nights! I’ve never seen the sun-dried tomato kind though…that sounds awesome! These were Italian-style, which were delicious :)

    Last nights dessert looks AWESOME!!! I like angel food cake because it isn’t too high in fat/calories and with added berries it is a delicious semi-healthy dessert!
    I hardly ever buy bakery goods but I could be very tempted to pick up the “lofthouse” sugar cookies with icing if I ever find them marked down. They are my FAVE but very dangerous to have around!!

    Brownies, fudge fancies, and anything chocolate tempts me to grab it off the shelf, open the box, and stuff my face into it. I have a problem when it comes to chocolate, let’s just say. 😉
