Hooooleeee moly! I have been kickin’ butt on my to-do list today…thank goodness, because I reeeally don’t want to have to do any work this weekend.
I’ve only got about three more items to take care of today, which is going to happen as soon as I finish up putting together this post…sooo let’s get to it!
While I was in the midst of all of my stuff this morning, I realized that I still had a batch of frosting in the fridge to frost yesterday’s cupcakes. Seriously, how could I have forgotten about frosting or cupcakes?
Well, it turns out my frosting was a major bust.
I put it in the fridge yesterday after noticing that it seemed way too runny, so I figured it just needed to cool down. After reading the directions more closely, I realized that I added double the amount of milk that I was supposed to.
So now I’m stuck with a big ‘ol bowl of this amazingly delicious failed frosting and I have no idea what to do with it.
Well, actually, that’s sort of a lie…
I did manage to find one thing to do with it.
So now, one of my to-do’s is to head to the store and pick up a couple more ingredients that I ran out of. Hmmmph.
After figuring out my frosting failure, I decided to pop in a yoga DVD and chill out with that. Forty minutes later, I felt refreshed, relaxed, and snacky.
I started out with a handful of almonds (plus some unpictured dried cranberries) and then put together a little yogurt bowl.
Today’s combo included a plain Chobani (+ 1 big spoonful of the vanilla chocolate chunk flavor from the tub), blueberries, half a banana, and granola.
I think blueberries + bananas has to be one of my favorite combos, besides my all-time favorite trio of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. It’s just so good.

It’s been a dark and rainy day over here which makes me believe that hubby’s softball game is going to get cancelled…which makes me believe that a nice, quiet evening in with some takeout, some wine, and some picture hanging is sounding mighty appealing right now!
How about you? What do you guys have planned for the weekend??
Alex @ Brain, Body, Because says
Maybe you could double the dry ingredients for your frosting?
Frosting or cat cookie dip – both are wins!
Ellie@Fit for the Soul says
yes, I agree with Alex! Doesn’t always work out very well but it sure helps :D And in the meanwhile you can top it with a combo of nut butter, greek yogurt and sweetener. It’s delish!
ahhh I miss rain~I love rainy days and your description of tonight sounds so nice :)
Hope @ With A Side Of Hope says
Sorry to hear about the frosting! At least it tastes good though so it’s not all bad. :)
You know what I do with frosting fails (that still taste good)? Freezer! Then you can have a spoonful every once in a while or dip some crackers in them later. ;)
Blueberries, banana, and strawberries has got to be my favorite fruit combo. I’ll be taking my daughter back-to-school clothes shopping and I’ve also got a mani/pedi on the agenda. ;)
perhaps you would be up for going out to watch the JETS???
Miranda @ Biting Life says
Oh no! Haha, that “frosting” still looks delicious, though. Takeout and wine sounds AMAZING right now…
I was gonna head to the beach but this weather might change those plans lol
Oh yikes about the frosting. At least you have an excuse to dip yummy things in it;)
I don’t know what kind of frosting it is, but you could try adding coconut oil, peanut flour, or peanut butter…but I’m actually no baking expert so maybe don’t trust me;)
Oh man, I would love a nice night in with wine and a movie! I have to work tonight though. Oh well, its still fun!
Sam @ Better With Sprinkles says
That is definitely the best failed frosting solution I’ve ever seen. :-)
Enjoy a relaxing evening at home. I’m on my way to Trader Joe’s in a little to get the weekend kicked off on a good note. :)
Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy says
It’s rainy here too. I hope that we can enjoy the spaghetti that I’m making, and then relax on the couch!
Fit Minded Mom says
Rain? What’s that?! I may have to start doing a dance to get some around here, lol!
A relaxing weekend sounds awesome but I will be running kids to birthday parties and then on Sunday, I am painting my master bedroom. Fun stuff.
Liz @ IHeartVegetables says
Oh that’s an awesome iherb deal!!! I’ve never ordered from there so I might need to try it out :)
Is that supposed to be caramel icing? I tried it twice, both times a MAJOR fail. I am convinced it is not a real thing.
I think Cat Cookies with that frosting is a major WIN.
Kristen @ notsodomesticated says
I’m actually making frosting as we speak haha!! I’m making homemade funfetti cupcakes, to celebrate my friend’s birthday. :) I hope they turn out to be great … it’s the first time I’m trying this recipe!
Frosting on ice cream…do it! :)
Alysha @Shesontherun says
Live and learn. I once put my frosting in the fridge before frosting my cupcakes. I’ll never do that again :) (This was before I found out if should be kept at room temp)
Michelle (Better with Berries) says
Sorry about your frosting – but it looks like it turned out to be a yummy snack anyway! I actually have some picture hanging planned tonight too :-)
Danica @ It's Progression says
Rainy nights aren’t always a bad thing–those takeout/wine/couchy/lazy nights are my favorite :) We’re hoping to have a fire out at a friend’s place tonight though (the weather is sunny here) and that’s always fun too!
Presley @ Run Pretty says
At least your fail is still edible :)
It’s been a rainy couple of days, we are going out to dinner tonight and watching a movie tonight. Tomorrow is packed and I don’t want to think about it and Sunday is roof repair day and I really don’t want to think about that.
Danielle @ Itsaharleyyylife says
I love blueberries and bananas together too! Nothin beats it!
That looks amazing!!!
I do a similar dipping with those cat cookies but with peanut butter and love it! The hubby and I have been busy workers this week and take out and a movie will be on the agenda for the evening!
i just came across this zucchini bread pancakes recipe and totally thought about you!! i thought i’d leave you with the recipe just incase you need to use up more zucchini soon :)
Bek @ Crave says
Oh my I could not trust myself with it!
Blueberries and bananas are one of my favorite combos too! Just this morning I made blueberry and banana pancakes…sooo goood!
I just wanted to say thanks for the iherb.com code! I’ve never used them before but they have great stuff and awesome prices.
