Hello friends! I’m currently sprawled on my couch. The extra morning shift this weekend tuckered me out! Thankfully, I am now officially on my “weekend.” I’ve got Tuesday and Wednesday off. First order off business – sleep. And then maybe spend tomorrow morning in bed watching the Today Show. It’s tough, I know ;)
I have a wonderful kitchen experiment I must share. I shall name them fibre tarts. Sounds appetizing, no? :P
I started off by grinding 1 1/2 cups Fibre 1 cereal in my coffee grinder with some cinnamon.
Then I stirred in 1 tbsp Earth Balance spread, 2 egg whites, 3 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond breeze and a squirt of honey.
I mixed up some fresh blueberries and blackberries with some honey and about 1/2 tbsp lemon juice.
For the “crust,” I took the Fibre 1 mixture and pressed into onto the sides of a greased muffin pan. I baked it first for about 20 minutes at 350 F.
I was pleasantly surprised by how well the Fibre 1 crust held up!
I let them cool off and saved it for an evening snack. I of course, slathered yogurt and pumpkin spice on top.
Major yums!! Not bad for a healthy dessert if I do say so myself ;)
There were some other notable eats at work as well. A bum plum.
It had two pits!!
And prune yogurt.
Anyone ever see the Activia prune flavour before? This was inspired by that. It sat in the fridge overnight and got soft and sweet. It was so good. Try it!
I also did my weekly 5k run after work today. Instead of my usual path in the woods, I took the route downtown. So weird to run in a populated area! It was a mix of sidewalk and gravel trail too, so it was nice to switch up my surface.
I didn’t push my speed that much and still managed to do it in 27:41. Yay! I’m doing the 5k portion of the Terry Fox Run next weekend. I’m wondering if I can get below 27 minutes? Something to shoot for I guess! :)
Oh, and I want to thank you all for your wonderful plant suggestions. Not! Haha, kind of made me feel better about my plant ineptness :) Lori was the only one with a green thumb and had great suggestions. Not surprisingly, as her wonderful garden photos are always gracing the pages of her blog :)
Anyways, I’m a Starvin’ Marvin today. Don’t know what’s up. Think I’ll make some popcorn and continue the couch sprawling while watching “Center Stage” on TV for the gazillionth time. Whatevs, I’m on my weeekeeend!!! :D
Hope you enjoyed yours!
