Whats up? I am so happy right now to be typing on the lap top. It has been out of order for a few months now and the man finally fixed it (thanks babe, its about time). So the plan is to go over a few of my eats and activities from today and then answer a few questions that I have been getting from you lovely ladies. Capesh?
After hittin up my man "Gym" this morning I was really missin an old fav so I brought back the blended grains spinach style...
...and topped with pb of course :).
Snack was a shake and then it was off to story time at the local Barnes and Noble so the little one could be entertained while I suck in as much information from all the books I have been wanting to read but am to cheap to buy.
After story time we headed to the fountains for some fun....
We went with a friend I made through my blog :) and her two little angels. I feel very lucky and fortunate to have made friends through my bloggie!! I would have to say that is my favorite part of having a blog.
We came home and had lunch. I made what I was hankering for....
Spicy butternut squash fries. I also made a quick stir-fry served over spinach...
- yellow pepper
- fresh ginger
- soy sauce
- tomatoes for color :)
Carrot sticks and apples with two jars for dipping...
Came home and made spaghetti and garlic bread for the gang. I served mine over zucchini noodles with a side salad...
Now on to a few questions I have received lately. A lot of you have been wondering how I make my Dark Chocolate Oat Bran...
Nothing better than dessert for breakfast without having to feel guilty right? Here's the breakdown..
- 1/2 cup oat bran
- 1 heaping spoonful of Hershey's dark chocolate cocoa powder
Another question I have been getting is how I cook my butternut squash fries so they are crispy and not soggy. I always start by trying to...
- Cut them all about the same size that way they all cook in the same amount of time
- I then place them on a plate and season them to my liking. I do many combos of the following
- chili powder
4. This is an important step: Make sure to space out the fries with at least an inch apart. If you place them to close together it will cause the squash to hold in the moisture.
5. Finally I bake it on the center rack at 425 for about 25 minutes
The result is perfect crispy fries :).
I am signing off and will be back tomorrow to answer more questions. Keep em coming :)
CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I love shopping at used designer clothing stores. I recently found a new one here in Nashville and picked up a pair of Habitual Jeans that go for $220 for a measly 20 bucks!!! What a deal, huh?
