Yes, those little beady eyes in the background are Sushi’s and yes she stayed exactly like that until I finished! For my birthday I baked myself a coffee cake that was to die for!! I bought the Trader Joe’s box coffee cake and I have to admit, it was flipping good and so easy!! Oh and you can’t go wrong with french vanilla ice cream on the side can you? The day before my birthday I went out with an old high school friend and had tons of fun! Gladly enough there was no hangover (trust me there usually is when there are old meet ups).
You know what’s equally as good, if not better, than birthday coffee cake? Breakfast for dinner!!!
|Chopped red peppers, onions & scallions|
|Add some chopped spinach and chopped veggie sausage|
|add eggs and cheese, top with black pepper and viola!|
Oh it was good! For the eggs I scrambled 3 egg whites, added a dash of hot sauce, milk, salt and pepper, pour on top of mixed veggies, top with another egg (which is totally option) and cheese (again totally optional but come on, cheese people) and black pepper. Bake at 350 until set to desired doneness…is that a word? Doneness? oh well. I digress. On the side I threw frozen broccoli in a baking pan and added garlic powder and Italian dressing. Oh. My. Word!!!!! This was amazing! I could have eaten a whole bowl of broccoli but then my fiance probably would not have liked the aftermath hahahaha! Bread….that’s what was missing!!!
You read that right! Bake at home french rolls!! They’re crusty on the outside and amazingly soft on the inside. Does anyone else hate using the word crusty for bread? lol moving along….oh another find!!!!
While I have to admit I’m getting sick of all the pumpkin recipes out there and to be honest I’m not that much of a fan of pumpkin. I AM A FAN OF THIS!!! It’s very airy, light…definitely like a whipped cream cheese. The pumpkin flavor is there but it’s not potent. Perfect for a breakfast! I can’t have super sweet or strong flavors in the morning unless it’s coffee so this was perfect for today.
I may just have to go home and have this for dinner!! Actually, that doesn’t sound like a bad idea!
So shifting from my obvious food obsession let’s move onto the new obsession!
Now I just got this yesterday so I don’t know if it’s allowed to be considered an obsession but let me tell you I can’t stop thinking about it! I even brought it to work so I can look at it. I can’t believe I just said that but it’s true! I made a timeline of all the stuff I need to do before tomorrow’s costume party in hopes that I’d be able to squeeze in a run to test it out but there is seriously no room! I’m heart broken. Unless I run at midnight, which is not going to happen in my neighborhood nor would the other half allow it, so that’s that. No running today, tomorrow I’m completely booked by the minute from the moment I wake up until the time guests are supposed to arrive!!! I’ll try to squeeze one in on Sunday, but if I can manage a miracle tonight tomorrow there may be hope, even if for 30 minutes!!! We’ll see.
Do you have any plans for Halloween? Since I’m having a costume party we have to of course dress up so I’m going to be Kim Kardashian, or Snookie. We’ll see how big my ass looks before the jury is out on that one
