So here we are folks…
This morning I headed to the gym bright & early for the 6:00AM BodyPump class. I stayed for a quick 15 minutes on the elliptical before my growling stomach told me it was time to head home. I even made it all the way home today without a stop at DD for an iced coffee… I’m trying to break the habit.
My sister had been raving about one of her “go to” breakfasts recently… a bagel thin + peanut butter + banana + chia seeds + honey! I’d seen similar breakfasts floating around the blog world & decided to give it a try, especially since I had my new peanut butter!
Well, now I see what my sister was talking about! I toasted up a bagel thin, added pb, sliced banana, chia seeds, & a drizzle of honey… yum! And so simple, too! I enjoyed it with a mug of hot coffee for a change!
My afternoon was spent doing a little wedding crafting, then running more errands (like dropping my engagement ring off to get “re-conditioned”!), & finally a stop at the apartment to drop off some clothing.
When I returned home, I needed an afternoon “pick me up” & decided to try out the Single Serving Peanut Butter Cookies posted on Chocolate Covered Katie today!
I followed this recipe exactly, but quickly discovered that we were out of applesauce! I know applesauce is usually the “stand in” for oil in recipes, but I figured since such a small amount was called for in the recipe (1 tsp.) I could substitute something of a similar consistency. Enter…
I remembered I had some leftover pudding from Chris’s birthday cupcakes & figured that would do. Ok, I know these probably don’t have the best nutritionals, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to get her cookie fix! 😉
I ended up getting 2 cookies out of the recipe & ate one hot out of the oven! I saved the other for my mom; she did make me that wedding countdown calendar after all! 😉
I’ll leave you with your daily dose of dog! Stewie is obsessed with belly rubs, as evidenced below! And Tobey… well if you can’t tell by the look of guilt on his face, he was caught somewhere he wasn’t supposed to be!
Do you have a “go to” breakfast? It’s always so tough for me to break from my normal routine, but as the post title says, “sister knows best” & I really enjoyed today’s breakfast!
