How Could You?

Alright, my friends. I’ve got a bone to pick with you…

Remember a few weeks ago when I went all buck wild on the pumpkin shopping spree?

Well…how could you all let me forget that I still had THIS in my house, just waiting to be devoured?? It’s a travesty.

By the time lunch rolled around today, I was craving something warm and comforting thanks to an oddly chilly house. I went into the kitchen unsure of what to make, but immediately had an “ah ha!” moment as soon as I saw this little guy staring back at me.

To make things even better? We still have some beer bread leftover from Sunday’s football game, so I put quite a few pieces of that to good use by adding them as soft “croutons” (err, bread cubes…whatever) to my soup.

I also swirled in a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt for some extra creaminess, and seriously, all I can say is that this stuff rocks my world. On soooo many levels.

I started out with cooking half of the container, since it’s “supposed” to be two servings…but really, who am I kidding? I totally went back and finished up the rest of it. Winking smile

A light lunch of soup was actually perfect for today, since I had already eaten two of these little guys earlier today.

I spotted Annette’s recipe for Protein Apple Chunk Muffins about a week ago and decided to give ‘em a go yesterday. They really are delicious, but I forgot to add in the oil (only 1 tbsp, but still), so I’m wondering if that’s what is causing them to stick to the liners? Either way, they still taste awesome, so thanks, Annette!

So I am suuuuuuuuper excited about tonight. I have plans to meet up with a couple of friends (and former co-workers) Gabby & Wendy, who I haven’t seen in over two years…I’m pretty sure the last time I saw them was at Gabby’s housewarming party back in July 2010. Crazy! It’s going to be so great to catch up with them over some yummy Mexican food later tonight. Winking smile
