Halloween Weekend 2011–Part III

Halloween Weekend 2011–Part III

Happy Halloween! Tonight I handed out this junk to our twenty or so trick-or-treaters. Aww, I love my little skeleton guy. These are actually the leftovers. Must give this away soon so I don’t eat it. I figured that since this is a food blog I should discuss more food in this post. Last night … Continue reading

Halloween Weekend 2011–Part II

Halloween weekend is a big deal and Saturday is the big night this year. Morning fuel consisted of scrambled eggs, sausage, rye toast, and an apple with caramel. Before I knew it, I was again putting on my Black Swan costume and getting ready to go out with Five Cent Femme, who dressed as a … Continue reading

Halloween Weekend 2011–Part I

Friday I took advantage of Latte Day at Espresso Royale – a skim latte. The only sandwich better than a Maize & Blue Deli sandwich is a FREE Maize & Blue Deli sandwich! Leftover catering at work made a delicious lunch. We even had leftovers of my favorite MBD sammie: #27 – Cindy’s Daily with … Continue reading

Pacific Veggie Pizza

Pacific Veggie Pizza

This is another “everything-I-ate-today” post. Thursday morning necessitated, as always, Espresso Royale coffee. Typical lunch for me lately: Fage yogurt with honey and granola (a few craisins, too) and a frozen Indian entrée. I have a slight obsession with paneer ever since Aarti discussed it on the FoodNet. It’s a fresh, mild Indian cheese you … Continue reading

98 Pumpkin Cookies

98 Pumpkin Cookies

This weekend I made cookies. Lots of cookies. Pumpkin cookies. Ninety-eight, to be exact. Yeah, that means I sat through four 14-minute cycles of baking two cookies sheets at a time. Weeeeee! It was my section’s turn to bring a snack to orchestra this week, so I decided to make a double batch of cookies … Continue reading

Sava’s–Take III

Sava’s–Take III

It just wouldn’t be the beginning of a new week without my weekend nomming update, amirite?! Friday, hitting up a semi-quaint bar for cocktail hour was attempted, but, not wanting to wait for a table, my dining companion and I hopped across State Street and hit up Buffalo Wild Wings for some dranks and nibbles … Continue reading

Shrimp Lo Mein

Shrimp Lo Mein

Shrimp. Something I despised until only recently. The texture. The whole deveining procedure. The funky tails. Just the whole thing weirded me out. When I would tell people that I didn’t like shrimp, shock and awe was the common reaction elicited. Yet, somehow, in only the last year or so, I’ve become a huge fan … Continue reading

Chicken Tamale Casserole

Chicken Tamale Casserole

Did you know that I love cornbread? If not, then now you do. If you also enjoy cornbread, you’ll love this recipe that I found for Chicken Tamale Casserole from Cooking Light. In preparation for cooking this dish on a week night, I baked and shredded boneless skinless chicken breast during the weekend and stored … Continue reading

Banana Oatmeal Pistachio Cookies

Banana Oatmeal Pistachio Cookies

Eek. After a weekend out of town, I came home to find these bad boys – super ripe ‘naners. Naturally, I had to bake something with them. I found a recipe on Sparkpeople.com, which was originally from the American Institute for Cancer Research, for these lower-calorie, relatively healthy Banana Oatmeal Cookies. First, the dry ingredients: … Continue reading
