I’m so glad you guys enjoyed my wedding recaps (please see the 3 previous posts if you missed them). I really enjoyed posting them 😀 Now, my leftover wedding cake is driving me crazy. CLC, shmiLC, I can’t get it off my mind. Every day I say that’s the last piece I’ll have, and then night time comes and I open the fridge for a little slice… which turns into 2 slices. *Sigh* You see normally the way I am able to turn things down (if in fact I’m successful) is by telling myself I can have it any other day. There is no reason to have it now. But with this wedding cake – there won’t be another day. I only plan on having 1 wedding and this is the last wedding day cake I’ll ever have. So that’s how I justify it. Does it make sense to anyone? I plan on feeding it to our friends tonight and then it will be gone. That’s a good thing. This way the internal battles in my head will stop It is one good cake though! 😉
I have lots of catching up to do on this past weekend. We had such a great time celebrating our first wedding anniversary and my dad’s birthday. But I kind of miss straight up food blogging, so today I’ll post about my food from yesterday. It was all clean good food + some cake at the end of the day to help me sleep better 😉
Lots of goodies in here – TJ’s european style nonfat yogurt, mango, sweet cherries, pb puffins, almonds + cacao nibs. The cacao nibs are a new purchase (they are 100% cacao – no sugar added). I’m still learning to love them, but they’re not bad. Just not chocolate the way I’m used to it (obviously since there is no butter and sugar like in reg chocolate). The breakfast was super delicious – so many flavors, so many textures. Yum!
Can’t get enough of these AK MAKS. They’ve basically become an everyday part of my pre-workout snack. Not heavy on the stomach but nice and hearty. Love them! The cherries were super sweet too. Too bad they’re not local… our local cherries are kind of sour
Simple – leftover chicken from Monday’s dinner at the Hamersley’s Bistro (separate post to come) + roasted turnips (tiny bit of EVOO + S&P, roasted at 400* for 50 minutes). The chicken the next day was just ok. A little greasy for my taste, even though I removed the skin. The turnips were yummy 😀
And for dessert I munched on the mango core. Can’t let it go to waste 😉
So many snacks in the afternoon! I really tried to listen to my body and not overeat, but I was hungry all afternoon. What’s up with that? Have you tried this kind of Larabar? I think it’s new. I liked it
Lots of walnut and sour cherry pieces. Love them both!
I still wanted more even after all those snacks, but I held off. I knew dinner would involve cake (my friend Katy was specifically coming over to have some, so I knew I’d have some too!).
I got home almost at 8pm and was starving. I had this awesome dinner planned starring the bok choy I picked up at the farmers market last week, but it went bad It made me quite sad and threw me off a little. No worries, plan B turned out great, despite the ugly pictures. I pan fried some tilapia (1.5 tsp EVOO for 3 pieces + S&P and garlic), made some cauliflower following this simple cauliflower recipe from 101 cookbooks, and boiled some brown rice on the side. This was simple but quite perfect actually.
The cauliflower recipe is excellent. The melty parmesan cheese made this dish extra special
And of course there was cake! You can go ahead and double this picture. Yes, I had seconds.
Can you believe it’s Wednesday already? Times flies by when you’re having fun, huh? See you later!
