My evening snack consisted of trying out some supposedly supremely spicy hummus. It was not as spicy as I imagined but I found it to be just perfect for my veggies. I really enjoyed this snack and loved it with cucumbers and carrots. This Sabra hummus we found at Costco while we were doing some shopping. I was proud of myself because I did eat some samples, some baked potato fry thing and dried cherries but I avoided all wheat and anything that was not a vegetable.
I ordered donut pans online and got them in the mail today. I had to try them out so I worked on creating the perfect apple fritter donut. They tasted pretty good but they still need some changes to be made to them. I did something wrong because the texture is kind of gummy, which can happen in the world of gluten free baking. I actually ate these two and then part of a big one I made in a twist pan.
My mom babysit’s Mumu on Tuesdays and Wednesdays while I work. Since she watches my son I have to take her son (my younger brother) to Boy Scouts in the evening. Dinner wasn’t done yet (because we had been at the track meet) so I was feeling a little hungry. On the way home I stopped at Super 1 for a couple baking supplies and grabbed my mom and I each a soft serve ice cream cone.. upside down in a cup. Since we have decided to be completely gluten free we were good and tossed out the cones. I did ask for no cones but I guess they would have to weigh the ice cream if they did it that way so they asked if they could just serve it in the cone.
I took them home and my mom had the brilliant idea of crumbling up some gluten free caramel rice cakes into the soft serve for a cone like experience. It worked! It was a delicious GF substitute that’s only 50 calories. Woot!
For my afternoon snack I pre-cut up a slice of havarti cheese and ham sandwich meat so I could make little rice cracker sandwiches. I ate them at 4pm so I could survive until dinner without binge eating. I left work a little early and watched my 8th grade brother compete in track. He won the 100 meter dash and his 4×100 relay. He was the fourth person so he got to cross the finish line for his team as the winner! It is so exciting to have an athletic relative. I was always the poor last placed girl dragging along behind everyone else…
For my quick 15 minute lunch I enjoyed a bowl of chicken pot pie and some strawberries. I pushed off lunch until 2pm which is pretty good compared to my normal 12pm time. Thankfully and not thankfully I was preoccupied with calling 45 people to see if they wanted to renew their ads for this upcoming paper. Sigh… not fun but makes the time go by I suppose.
I had never seen raspberry Fage yogurt before and yesterday I was shopping at Target and came across this kind. It seemed like a weird place to find a new flavor. Today I was trying to spread out my snacks more at work so I wouldn’t be so ravenous when I got home. Usually I eat about 9:30 but today I forced myself to be content with some coffee while waiting to eat this yumminess at 11am. I did it! I crumbled up my granola into it and enjoyed a great morning snack.
My husband stayed home from school to finish a monster paper he had due. I made us each a cup of soul. This is a crazy delicious mexican hot chocolate coffee topped with homemade whip and sprinkled with cinnamon. This drink is actually called a “bowl of soul” and is served at a local coffee shop around here. If enjoying your coffee there your drink will be served in a bowl! It’s so good and I managed to replicate it here at home… in my awesome Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte machine! With the extra whip I created I put a dollop on a handful of strawberries! This was a perfect afternoon snack as I struggled to make pinwheels for Mumu’s first birthday coming up. I needed something comforting… like a sweet coffee!
