What YOU said

Linner tonight was delicious delicious leftovers from chicken-pineapple skewer night (on one of my new cherry plates from mom):


Remember the char (marinated to reduce carcinogens, of course)?


Dessert was a special special treat.


Before I left MA yesterday, I convinced my mom my mom offered to make Indian pudding so that I would have some comforting “mom food” to bring back to Brooklyn with me. I found this recipe online, and mom doctored it by replacing the whole milk with a mixture of skim milk, fat free ricotta, and nonfat evaporated milk; the sugar with a mixture of sugar in the raw and erythritol; halving the butter and using Promise; and omitting the half-and-half in favor of vanilla ice cream. For tonight’s dessert, I heated 1/2 cup.

I had my warm Indian Pudding with homemade vanilla frozen yogurt (plain yogurt, vanilla, honey) and a sliced strawberry:


Word on the street is that a slice of healthy cheesecake also found its way into the evening πŸ˜›

On another note, you’ve all given me so many fun suggestions via comments over the past few days, so I thought it would be useful to give a little recap. Here’s what you said!

Food in Your Hair (and other non-edible beauty-inspired ways to use food)

  • Oatmeal face mask (Susan)
  • Grape-vanilla smoothie body wash (Krista)
  • Cocoa bean body scrub (Lara)
  • Mayonnaise hair mask (Coco)
  • Avocado face mask (Sophia)

  • Coconut oil shampoo/conditioner (Anne K.)
  • Lemon juice hair highlights (Vani)
  • Chamomile tea hair rinse (Mara)

Things You Would French Toast

I dare someone to give one of these a try (especially the s’mores — I bet that could actually work very well). Report back if you do it! What sounds best to you?

    S’mores and Carrot Cake alwayssss sound good to me, so I’d try that!

    And that’s sweet that your mom sent you home with some good treats, I just reallyyyyy wish I had that pudding myself so that I could make the same thing!! And your sweetened yogurt trick is LEGIT! I’m not always full up to the tart plain taste, so adding the vanilla and honey would be perfectttt for me!

    I like the idea of french toast-ing angel food cake! Or cake of any type (with icing on there as well, of course…)

    Your Indian Pudding looks amazing – I bet it was way better than my weight watchers chocolate pudding…

    BTW, I love the cherry plates!


  4. Lara (Thinspired) says:

    I really did not know that marinating reduced carcinogens! Good to know.
    All the ideas are so creative and fun. Hmm…french toast pancakes sound interesting. I envision lots of powdered sugar.


  5. Christina says:

    I have lots of ideas running through my head for s’more french toast… I’ll definitely have to start experimenting!

  7. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) says:

    WOOT proud to represent the only savory (and vegetable) suggestion on the french toast list! πŸ™‚ How uncharacteristic of me, haha! But it so works, for serious. Yay for mom food and boo that I don’t have any (doesn’t transport so well from Tokyo).
