A Yummy Little Treat

Well heyyyyyyy there, friends! Happy Monday to you all. Did everyone have a great weekend? Mine was the perfect mix of busy, friends, and relaxation. I didn’t spend too much time on the blog, but here’s what you may have missed…

After such a busy day on Saturday, Jay and I were both pretty wiped out yesterday. I also, for some reason, was feeling a bit under the weather so yesterday wound up being a pretty lazy day. Lazy as in, never even changed out of my PJ’s and parked myself on the couch all day long. No joke. I really think it was needed though, and I am feeling a bit better today.

To go along with our lazy theme last night, we decided to just throw together a bunch of our leftovers from the party for dinner. Here was my plate:

Veggies + hummus, sweet and sour meatballs, a chunk of baguette, and a few pieces (only wound up eating 2 of them) of party rye toasts that actually never even got made at the party. I had already mixed up the topping before the party started, so we still have all of it left in the fridge. Whoops.

For dessert, I had a couple leftover Santa hat brownies. Yum. Smile

Breakfast

Today’s morning meal included a yummy little treat that I’ve been enjoying for the past couple of days.

First, I scrambled up an egg, added some chopped up spinach, and topped it with salsa.

Not just any salsa though…this mango peach salsa that I picked up over the weekend.

It. is. so. freakin’. good.

To go along with my eggs, I had half of a bran muffin topped with a little butter.

While I was out doing some last minute grocery shopping on Saturday, I ended up passing the “Oops, we made too much!” rack, and came across a 4-pack of bakery bran muffins for a dollar. I was also a little hungry while shopping, which may have influenced my purchase slightly.

I’ve been enjoying half of a bran muffin at a time, like for yesterday’s breakfast…

And for a snacky lunch both yesterday and on Saturday, paired with a yogurt…

They’re a little crumbly, as if you couldn’t tell, but they still taste great. I’ve long been a fan of Price Chopper’s bran muffins, but it’s been ages since I last had them. So good!

I guess it’s about time to get back to the grind…have a great Monday, everyone!

Question for the Morning:

If you could choose any one item to have from a bakery, what would it be?

I love bakery muffins, but depending on what bakery, I also love a simple glazed donut.

    Lazy days are absolutely necessary once in a while…once I’m done my final papers, I might end up with a full week of them :-p

    Any food from a bakery? Considering my sweet tooth, I’d have to go in that direction…either a chocolate cupcake or macaroons (I’ve recently decided that I’m obsessed with them)

    We had an incredibly lazy Sunday as well… I wasn’t feeling awesome and it was snowing all day, so it made for the perfect lazy day. My favorite bakery item would probably have to be a muffin with streusal topping! That’s a tough question considering I love pretty much any baked good though. ;)

    I’m a big fan of fresh doughnuts at bakeries. I love small, mom n’ pop bakeries, but we don’t really have any around here. I think they’re falling by the wayside.

    If I had to buy a single item from a bakery, it would either be fresh baked bread, a fudge or sugar cookie, or a brownie.
