Extra Creamy

by Meghann on January 23, 2012

Today’s latte at the Felicitous Coffee Shop was extra good today.

Do you know why? The barista accidentally used whole milk instead of my normal non-fat request in my order. It wasn’t until I commented on the extra yummy creaminess, that she confessed the error. Her bad was my special treat. Yum. ๐Ÿ™‚

My latte was paired with a little container of mixed nuts and dried fruit that I nibbled on while working at the coffee house.

Last night i picked up some pre-made chicken burgers from Whole Foods on my way home for dinner. The plan was to make them last night while watching the game, but the boy ditched me for his brother’s tv (totally understandable), so the burgers were pushed to tonight.

I brought home a fiesta themed chicken burger and a buffalo chicken burger. I loved how easy it was just to take it out of the packaging and right on the George Foreman grill.

Before I started the burgers, I cut up a sweet potato and regular potato and seasoned them with a blended spice and salt and pepper. Since I had the time, I took the slow roast approach by baking them for an hour at 350, then another 10 minutes at 400 for a nice crispy coat with a mushy enter.

The final product.

I took the buffalo chicken patty since it was the smallest and topped it with more buffalo sauce while getting a little crazy with the bottle of blue cheese dressing. I wish i could say these burgers wowed me, but they didn’t. They were both flavorless and a little dry. I would have been better just prepping the meat and jazzing up a burger on it’s own.

The potatoes were perfection with some ketchup. I’m usually too impatient to go the slow roasting route, but when you have the time you can really taste and enjoy the difference. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Some steam fresh lima beans for a little green.

Espresso chip frozen yogurt for dessert.

It’s a Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game kind of night.

Good Night!

Lunch time! Last night’s leftover bbq tofu made for the perfect filler for my sandwich today. Just throw in some arugula, blue cheese, and press between two pieces of honey oat bread in the George Foreman and an easy tofu panini is served.    Served with fresh green beans (for crunch!) and two mini pickles more ยป

Walk and Read

January 23, 2012

Goooooooood Mooorrrrnnniiinnggg! Did you have a great weekend? I ran 11 miles with the sunrise, saw a new venue, went to universal, and turned really lazy, so I’d say my weekend wasn’t half bad. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I actually prefers weekend like that – one crazy busy adventure day followed by one super lazy enjoy-the-moment day – more ยป
