Special Treats

by Meghann on May 20, 2009

So I am officially deeming myself a genius for my Yogurt Parfait Pie creation on Monday night. For something I literally thought of and threw together in less then thirty minutes, this baby is a true winner. This will definitely be my go to item for group potlucks from now on. In fact I might even make up a pie and bring it to my sibling’s graduation party this weekend.

I had another serving of the parfait pie today for my afternoon snack and it seriously tasted like I was eating a real pie. Again, I licked the tupperware clean and if I had had access to the rest of the pie, I promise you that would be gone now too.

For dinner tonight I was finally able to enjoy the Tofu I felt I was missing out on all last week. It has been on my to-make list since I got home and I was so happy to finally have the time to put it together this evening.

I baked the tofu per Gliding Calm’s instructions using her special marinade. It came out nice and crispy, just the way I like it. I then paired the tofu with some steamed broccoli

And had some Rutabaga Fries on the side.

I cut a rutabaga in fry shapes and just simply cooked them in the oven at the same temp and time of the tofu. I added some Anne’s BBQ Sauce on the side for dipping.

This dinner was of course amazing and filling.

Dessert was a special delivery from one of my favorite bakers.

I was jumping for joy when I opened my mailbox today to discover some fresh baked Peanut Butter Trail Mix Blondies from the wonderful Amanda.

Amanda sent the blondies in support of my upcoming marathon. I will be sure to bring these babies with me to San Diego to enjoy before and after those 26.2 miles. These will make the perfect celebration treat.

Of course, I couldn’t wait until next weekend to try these babies and warmed one up in the microwave as an after dinner treat.

This is my third batch of Amanda’s blondies and each one gets better then the last. These were chalk full of nuts, peanut butter, raisins and other yummy treats. Yum, Yum, Yum!!

Thank you Amanda again for another wonderful batch of blondies! I will make sure to have one of these babies waiting for me at the finish line! I can’t wait!!

I feel like I have been playing catch up on my TV ever since I’ve been back, there are just so many good shows happening right now. Last night I was finally able to catch up on Gossip Girl (OMG!) and Grey’s Anatomy (another tear jerker!) but I still have 90210, Desperate Housewives, The Office, Ugly Betty and so on to watch.

Man am I ready for rerun season!

Any particular season finales out there have anyone on the edge of their seats?

I woke up to more rain this morning. Apparently in the last 48 hours we have had over 10in of rain in total! There was flooding all over my apartment complex and the road that leads to my work was a river. We really needed the rain, but I think this is getting a little more »
