Someone forgot to tell central Iowa that it’s not nice to tease. After yesterday’s cozy, lounge-on-the-couch-and-watch-football weather, we’re supposed to be back up in the mid-80s today. Sheesh! I wish the weather would make up its mind already so I can put away my summer clothes and make room for fluffy sweaters and comfy hoodies. Have you switched your wardrobe over yet?
This morning I whipped up a quick & delightful Greek Yogurt, Fruit & Cereal Bowl for breakfast!
In the mix:
- 1 Pineapple Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 1 chopped nectarine
- handful of Kashi GoLean Crunch! cereal
Look at that thick yogurt – it’s like icing! Icing that’s ok to eat by the spoonful, that is. I always think Raspberry Chobani is my favorite flavor, but I think pineapple maaaay have it beat.
I’m still experimenting with morning photo shoots in the dark. Last week it was under the bright stove lights, this week it’s with a quick shutter under the warm-toned kitchen light. More experimentation to ensue.
I packed a HUGE Kitchen Sink Salad for lunch!
UGH, I haven’t had one of these babies in a GRIP! I made a couple for the week yesterday afternoon, and started by filling up my tupperware containers with lettuce & spinach…
then attacking them with a pizza cutter. You can fit so many more greens in when you chop it all up, plus it’s so much easier to eat when the lettuce isn’t smacking you in the face.
In the mix:
- Mixed greens
- Carrot chips
I loooove, love, love putting uncooked pepperoni (I actually hate hot pepperoni, like on pizza) in both lettuce AND pasta salads.
It adds a ton of flavor, because of all the spices that are in the ‘roni, and you don’t need to add a ton either. What are your favorite unusual salad toppers?
They’re back, people!! I actually grabbed one to crunch on on my way up to Chicago last Friday, and grabbed one for the way back too, and it was like being reunited with a long lost friend. They are SO amazingly sweet and snappy!
I always think my Pink Lady Apples are uber-crunchy, but they can’t hold a candle to the ‘Crisp!
