Ahhh, what a day. And I’m not nearly done with all my reading for class tomorrow! I’m going to try to make this post quick (although whenever I say that, the post ends up going on for ages and ages).
Make sure to submit your BSI recipes by midnight tonight! Scroll down to the previous post for more details and list of entries thus far.
While I’ve been working all day, a pot of chocolate caramel enchantment chai tea with unsweetened Silk has been keeping me company. Clearly the teapot is struggling to stay afloat just like I am!
(I think something exciting might be happening with the Superbowl? I’m hearing lots of “Oh my god!” shouts coming from the apartment downstairs.)
For lunch, I made leftover cracker-pizzas. On my pizza stone, I placed two Kavli Crsipy Thin Crackers:
Roasted veggies and tofu left from last week’s lunches:
The last of Thursday night’s cheese and butternut squash seeds:
The stone went into the oven at 450 for about 12 minutes. And then it came out:
On the side, I had the rest of the roasted veggies that did not fit on the crackers:
I ate the pizza taco-style:
This was SO good. I’m really excited I finally found a use for these crackers! I’ve had the box sitting on top of the fridge since September. Expect pizza crackers to be appearing again at some point.
For dessert, I had a jumbo Medjool date stuffed with goat cheese (Fitnessista-style) and sprinkled with cinnamon (expansion-style ;-)):
Ahhhh, this was delicious, too! Perhaps next on the agenda is a date & goat cheese cracker pizza??
I also had a few more bites of frozen cake:
Because I ate all this so late (around 4:30 I think), I never really got hungry for dinner and contented myself with lots of tasting as I worked on cooking my lunches for the coming week. But you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for details on that. Can you stand the suspense?
In honor of tonight being the last night for BSI submissions, I decided to give the BSI prize a test-drive. Here’s my sugar cookie sleigh ride tea (and some sort of apparition riding out of it) with two Earl Grey Biscotti Bites:
As “toasty” on the bottom as they are, these bites were delicious — even better today than last night! I hope the winner likes them. I’m always a little bit apprehensive about feeding other people my healthified and substituted-to-death desserts!
OK, off to take care of some more loose ends and prep for tomorrow … and hopefully bed by 9. Can’t wait to see the rest of your submissions!
