Warning: unhealthy dinner coming up

November 13, 2008

I bought an avocado at the store on the weekend. Yesterday, while buying the (unhealthy) ice cream at the store, I saw a display of (unhealthy) chips and the idea of chips and guacamole for dinner was born! I did have another goat cheese/pecan/pear salad, too.



By the way, this was one serving of chips (18). I might have had a few more before dinner, and a few after dinner…

I also had a toasted pumpkin muffin – yum!

Tomorrow’s Friday and what does that mean? $1.80 turkey sandwich from the caf (my Friday tradition). Oh ya, and Graham comes home. That’s a little better than a turkey sandwich. Very happy about that 🙂

Happy almost Friday!


Crack me up

September Daring Bakers

This month’s challenge was hosted by Natalie and Shel. The recipe was Lavash Crackers (check out their sites for the typed-out recipe – I am too lazy!) and the great thing about it was the personalization. Other than the basic recipe, the rest was up to us! As you can see, I went very plain for my crackers. I did half sesame seeds and half Fleur de Sel. For my dip, I totally took the lazy way out – straight avocado!

Here’s what happened: I actually made crackers three weeks ago.

But I forgot to moisten the top, so the seeds didn’t stick. I ate the crackers themselves, over the next few days. 

Then, today, I was reading blogs on Google Reader and saw some challenges already posted! I guess I lost track of the date, so realized that I needed to post asap. The crackers are really easy and fast to make, but at 9 o’clock on a Saturday night… all I want to do is sit like a lump and watch the tv! So, I just put out some avocado. A few crackers were my post-dinner snack…

Might have peach bread too! 🙂
