Garden Fresh! (and oven baked)

When I came home from the studio tonight, someone from my dad’s work had sent half of a monstrous zucchini home.  I also had cartoned eggwhites that I needed to use up…I decided to make a frittata of sorts, but more veggies, less egg.  I picked these tomatoes to accompany the zucchini, and also made a chiffonade of fresh basil leaves.  I ate soooo many of those little baby orangies off the vine.  Sweet and perfect!

There is the whole frittata.  Here is a slice and the pan with one slice turned over, so you can see all the lovely browned zucchini goodness!

yummm!

I munched on extra zucchini and tomato…
While the frittata was in the oven:
Dessert was a peanut butter cake.  I tasted it plain, and decided it definitely needed chocolate frosting.  No recipe, I was flyin by the seat of my pants.  The cake is very oaty (I ground them up into a flour), has a strong peanut flavor, and is not too sweet.  That’s why it needed ridiculously sweet chocolate fake buttercream, WITH chocolate chips mixed in.  My boyfriend looooooves chocolate and peanut butter, so I was sure to pack up a big piece to stick in the freezer for when he gets home from burningman!

FROSTED!

So I spun for 100 mins earlier.  It was a great workout, my favorite teacher, lots of sprints!
I know I said I was going to try to let that be enough.  It wasn’t.  I just couldn’t sit still.  I used the moutain climber (nautilus, kicks my ass!  anybody else use one of these?!?!) at the studio.  I also took the boys (moki and murphey, boy’s dog and roomies dog) for a leisurely stroll.
It’s time for me to HIT LE SAC!
Happy Friday, and here’s to the long weekend!
And just as I was ready to wrap up this post…I realized I had not posted lunch!  It is important!  I tried a new (GOOD) bar!
broccoli and salsa!

I mixed salsa and broccoli together, then dipped the into bleu cheese, cottage cheese, and laughing cow.
THE BAR!  It’s an ISS Oh Yeah! Bar in Chocolate and Caramel.  I don’t know why the flavor is called that, cause the first ingredient is peanuts.  Anyway, this bar packs a serious calorie, fat, and protein punch.  I figured I would just eat half and save the other half for tomorrow or something.  It tasted SO good, however, that I ended up eating all but a couple of bites.
I liked it so much, that I called the company to ask if they made smaller versions of the same thing.  Turns out they do!  Half the size!  These would be perfect!  I will seek them out.  I hear there are a few great flavors too…vanilla toffee fudge, mocha something fudge.  Yum.
