It’s so nice to know I’m not the only one with a killer sweet tooth after dinner!! I loved reading all of your comments earlier and wish you all the best on your goals. I am still feeling pretty good about my decision to go the next 40 days without sweets after dinner…
We’ll see what I say a couple days from now.
On to today!!
I’m sure there’s no surprise here, but I’ve got a whole loaf of Banana Raisin Pumpkin Bread to be eaten, folks!
So I went for it. But this time I got smart and added a little PB to both slices. Mmmm mmmm, GOOD. On the side, I had a little fuzzy peach.
And, of course, some coffee to go!
To some of you, my lunch may look a little lame, but I’m telling you…sometimes cereal for lunch just totally hits the spot! Who’s with me???
It was exactly what I needed!
As soon as I got home from work, I prepped a package of chicken tenders that we bought over the weekend and let them marinate for almost two hours before cooking them up and adding them to some big ‘ol salads!
My salad included a mix of romaine, spinach, cukes, cherry tomatoes, onion, baby carrots, broccoli, red pepper, dried cranberries, and 3 chicken tenders. I drizzled my salad with the same dressing I used to marinate the chicken, Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian with Parmesan. It’s another one of my favorites!
On the side, Jay and I finished up the last of our beer bread. I toasted it in the toaster oven, which made it pretty difficult to bite into without obliterating the roof of my mouth.
Jay and I laughed at the fact that we both felt like all we could hear throughout our entire dinner was “CRUNCH, CRUNCH, CRUNCH!” Talk about a noisy meal! I mean really, you’d think I’d learn…
Luckily, adding a little jelly to the top helped soften things up a bit.
I can already sense my sweet tooth starting to perk up, and it certianly doesn’t help that I’m finishing up a batch of chocolate chip cookie cups for my mother-in-law.
I’m hoping a warm mug of White Chocolate Kisses tea will keep any temptations subsided.
That, and the fact that I get to laugh all evening with my favorite Wednesday night sitcoms!!
Question for the Day:
What are some of your favorite after dinner snacks…that aren’t baked goods or sugary sweets??
I’m going to need some ideas!
