So yesterday I spent the day being fairly lazy. I watched the food channel for a bit then I decided I needed to surf food blogs. My did I find some great recipes. I started pinning recipes that I wanted to try.
I did get the dogs out for a walk and a run on the treadmill so the day wasn’t totally shot but I did have LOTS of downtime.
I’m not sure what is happening with my diet, I don’t want to call it a diet because It’s not a diet its a new way of eating. But yesterday all I could think about was food.
For dinner tonight I found this recipe for Baked Potato Soup . I didn’t add as much cheese, bacon and chives to mine but it was still really good. On her website it said 206 calories for 1 serving, but when I put the recipe into myfitnesspal using the brands and amounts I used it came to 230 calories for 1.5 servings. Her pictures are much prettier than mine.
Then I found this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies with a fudge brownie stuffed in the middle. Sinful, and I didn’t bother to calculate the calories. I’m not sure I want to know and I’m not sure I’m going to eat them. Okay that would be cheating I’ll calculate the calories and get back to you.
My Cookies didn’t flatten down like hers did, they stayed kind of ball like. I may not have used the right amount of butter. The recipe called for 2 sticks……I had NO idea how much two sticks was so I googled it at the condenses was 1 cup. We all know how reliable the information on the internet is so not sure if that was the right amount or not. Anyway I did break off a corner of this cookies and it was yummy!
So my next post will probably be from Vegas and I am planning on eating all kind of wrong there…… what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right. Well let me clarify that I am planning to eat a good breakfast and lunch but when it comes to a fancy dinner I am going to enjoy it and not think twice about it. I am very excited, the kids are looking forward to have Grandma come stay with them and I am looking very forward to a change in scenery!
