A couple of weeks ago we picked up one of those counter top ice cream makers because well…I am lazy and the old fashioned type, with the salt and the ice, is a mess. I made this amazing peanut butter cup ice cream over the 4th weekend and it was amazing. The ice cream base was peanut butter flavored (so good) and then in the last five minutes of churning you add in the chopped mini peanut butter cups. Absolutely delicious. We have the tiniest bit left in the freezer and I think I’m going to sneak it out for myself tonight.
My office was not only closed Friday, but Monday as well, which was extremely lucky. Monday morning my mother and I made plans to go into town. I had to do some returns and pick up a few things for my upcoming trip. I made us egg white omelets with sauteed spinach, salsa, and cheddar cheese. I had half of an english muffin with strawberry preserves and some cherries as well. The batch of fruit we bought last week has been so good.
After the terrible eating habits from the long weekend I’ve been craving light lunches. This has been my go to so far this week. Raw veggies: sugar snap peas, baby carrots, peppers, and tomatoes, with sabra artichoke spinach hummus and some wheat thin crackers. It really has been hitting the spot. I especially love sugar snap peas with hummus.
You know how some days it’s just to hot to think about cooking? Yesterday evening was one of those days. I couldn’t decide what to eat though. I kept opening the fridge, staring into then closing it, only to open it up again. On the third try a package of bacon caught my eye and I decided a BLT sounded nice since we have fresh tomatoes from the garden. I made mine on a multi grain english muffin and instead of the actual “L” I replaced lettuce with avocado because I was too lazy to wash said lettuce. Plus, avocado is amazing on everything, let’s be honest.
