It’s really starting to feel like summer here in TX! Yesterday when I got into my car, the dash said that it was 90 degrees. I always get excited when it seems like summer’s on it’s way- remind me of this when it’s 110 in July, m’kay?
This morning oats didn’t sound very good, so I pulled out a container of Stonyfield Farms Apple Pie Yogurt and mixed it with Peanut Butter Puffins (LOVE THESE), sliced strawberries and almonds:
I wasn’t a big fan of the yogurt. It was really runny and kept dribbling off the spoon. But the strawberries and Puffins were good!
My mom asked me to meet her at Mi Cocina for lunch. There’s one right up the street from us and we used to go all the time. I guess we just got tired of eating there, but today reminded me of how much I love their food. I had the Enchiladas Modern with chicken and latin stir fry (the enchiladas are buried under the veggies):
Yummy. I ate two of the enchiladas and brought the other home… which Brian promptly snarfed after work.
The rest of the afternoon was spent working on a project for my Intro to Hospitality class and baking cupcakes for a baby shower. I used the Magnolia Bakery Vanilla Birthday Cake recipe along with their Vanilla Buttercream, tinted blue and dusted with clear sanding sugar. The toppers are from Cake Carousel.
Once Brian got home we watched the latest episode of Food Network Challenge: Last Cake Standing. Have I mentioned how much I love Bronwen Weber? She’s brilliant and I’m definitely pulling for her to win. She always seems so cool and collected during the challenges (unlike some of the other contestants) AND she’s a Dallas gal. Not native, but still.
Then we took a walk around the neighborhood and headed to dinner at Souper Salad. I’m sorry to say that I ate ALL of this. Salad, soup, mac and cheese, slice of pizza.
And I may or may not have gone back for ice cream.
Off to shower and then bedtime. I got an exciting package in the mail last week from Buitoni, so look for a product review tomorrow!
What’s your favorite (or least favorite) Food Network show?
Ace of Cakes! And you know I love me some Giada, too.
