Happy Friday! How’s everyone doing today? Things over here are fantastic!
Last Night’s Dinner
So I already told you all in last night’s tangents post that I was having some homemade sauce for dinner. Ohhhh, it was delicious.
I cooked up some pasta and sautéed a bunch of zucchini, yellow squash, and spinach, to make a beautiful pasta and veggie bowl. Jay’s bowl was probably 75% pasta and 25% veggies…mine was probably 25% pasta and 75% veggies.
I also snagged a mini meatball and a chicken sausage bite which I divided out amongst the containers when I made the original batch of sauce. There really is nothing like homemade sauce and meatballs, am I right?
Dinner was enjoyed while partaking in a group chat with my fellow Healthy Living Summit panelists.
We spent a good amount of time reviewing the answers to the survey that we asked all of you bloggers out there to take (thank you!), and we definitely got some great responses! The more we talked and the more I reviewed the responses, the more I realized that I really could talk about the subject of negativity in the blog world all day. It’s such an interesting topic with so many aspects to it. All I’ll say it…if you’re going to be at HLS, you’re definitely not going to want to miss this discussion.
This morning, I woke up entirely in “baker” mode and got right to work. I had to hit up the grocery store firs thing so of course I had to make a little pit stop for Coffee Friday.
I ordered just a regular iced coffee, but then I came home and turned it into a homemade Caramel Mocha. Totally delicious! (No blueberry munchkins today…I figured it was about time to take a break on those. )
Breakfast today has been consumed in various stages while I’ve been in the midst of baking, so I never bothered to grab the camera. But so far I have had a banana, a vanilla Chobani with granola, and a Clif Z Bar.
They were all good, but I reeeeally would have loved to just dig right in to this eggless chocolate chip cookie dough.
It’s time to get back to the cupcakes, and since I still haven’t chosen a winner for Christina’s Signature Tree Giveaway, you still have until this afternoon to get your entries in. So if you haven’t done it yet…well get to it!
Questions for the Morning:
WOULD YOU RATHER…
- Eat raw cookie dough -OR- cake batter (assuming no raw eggs are involved)?
- Be filthy rich –OR- command tremendous respect (but not both)?
- Have a mouse run up your pant leg –OR- a wasp get caught inside your shirt?
