I was so excited for dinner tonight. I made myself a light main meal of steamed broccoli slaw, edamame, brussel sprouts, and cannellini beans topped with pasta sauce and sriracha. I was excited for the dessert that I had made myself, until I got super full during my main course 😦
First, I made raw cookie dough balls by combining cashews, dates, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips in the food processor then rolling the mixture into little balls. I then made a banana smoothie and put some of the balls into the mix so it was more or less a healthified cookie dough milk-shake.
I had a couple of bites, it tasted great, but I just couldn’t do it for some reason…so it’s waiting for me in the freezer.
Brian then got home from studying early and we went on a bike ride! The weather was seriously perfect today, not to hot, but slightly warm, some leaves fallen off trees, and sunny.
We then appropriately rode right to the 9/11 Memorial that was completely unveiled today. Those are two pieces retrieved from ground zero. Very touching.
After coming home, I finished up a bread recipe that I was testing out, and I think it turned out better than I expected! I had to use yeast to make this bread, and not use the bread maker. I don’t have a lot of experience with yeast breads, so it didn’t look 100% like the picture because it didn’t rise enough, but it still tasted pretty good! I’ll share the recipe tomorrow 😉
Off to bed to get ready for the work week!
