Playing Catch Up

by Meghann on November 22, 2008

After a very busy day I decided to stay in tonight and just play catch up. I’ve been catching up on blogs, my DVR and laundry. It’s been wonderfully relaxing and just the break I needed.

I ended up not getting very hungry for dinner until around 8:00; even then it still was not at ‘OMG hunger’ so I decided to take my time and come up with fun creative dinner. At first I wanted to make a sweet potato and black bean burrito, but was out of sweet potatoes. After I stood in front of my fridge for 5 minutes thinking hard I decided to experiment with the last 1/3 of Butternut Squash Puree I had in the fridge. The results were amazing.

I ended up with a Black Bean, Butternut Squash & Corn Burrito.

I stuffed the burrito and topped it with Salsa and Fat Free Cheddar Cheese and baked it in the over at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. It was sooo good!! The pureed butternut squash reminded me of refried beans in the Taco Bell burrito. It was gooey, chewy and delicious!

On the side I had some accidentally overcooked, oven roasted asparagus.

Though they ere overcooked, the asparagus were still excellent!

I experimented for dessert tonight. A couple of days ago I placed my Vanilla Chobani in the freezer in hopes of replicating my favorite sweet treat.

Unfortunately it did not pan out as I had expected. It was like an icey creamsicle, not exactly the creamy frozen creation I was expecting. I gave up a couple of bites and moved on to another dessert….

I dug into four Candy Cane Trader Joe Cookies. They were a much better alternative to the frozen Chobani. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am meeting up with the Orlando Runners Club tomorrow for a very early 10 miler. I’m going to hit the hay extra early tonight. Sweet Dreams!
