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!
In all its glory
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!
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!
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!
three cheeses for dipping
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.
