Melted cookies...

TUESDAY RECAP

6:50-7:30am:  Dance/jogging/2 sets arms/"booty blast"/1 minute plank mix

8:00am:  Hot lemon water

9:15am: Breakfast-Multigrain waffle with butter
I had all intentions of going back for a 2nd waffle and some clementines if I was hungry, but after I had a chance to sit and have my coffee at 10:30, it managed to hold me over until lunchtime.

And by lunchtime, I mean 12pm SHARPJ

12:00pm:  Lunch- Toasted Coconut yogurt with flax seed & sliced almonds  

2:00pm:  Snack #1- Pear 

3:30pm:  Snack #2- Small salad with raspberry vinaigrette and 1 oz. of cranberry goat cheese 

5:30pm:  Moroccan Carrot Soup with Chickpeas

So the FRIGID temperatures last night basically FORCED us to have soup last night, and this cumin, coriander & cinnamon spiced sweet carrot soup fit the bill perfectly.


I pretty much doubled the recipe using 8 carrots, 2 onions and just deluged the broth with the spices...cause that's how I roll.
I added a can of chickpeas for extra bulk and Moroccan-nessJ  I drizzle of honey & a small dollop of nonfat yogurt, and dinner was complete!

Well, sorta.  I was just FEELIN some toast last night...so, toast with butter was hadJ

So warm & cozy...(even if I think this soup would be great for spring too when carrots are fresh & fabulous.) 

And Katie had her own little bowl of carrot soup & yogurt (sans honey...did anyone else not know that honey was a "DONOTFEEDITTOANUNDERONEYEAROLD" food?  Yeah, I didn't either.)

She had a few bites...and then decided to fist pump her way through the rest of dinner.  True story. 

8:00pm:  Dessert-  Soooooo, I knew I was going to have to break out this guy sooner than later...
Ya know what the 'crunch' is from??  COOKIE CRUMBS.  C-O-O-K-I-E  C-R-U-M-B-S!!  Saint Peter must have something to do with thisJ

So in true winter fashion, what did I do??

No...not the smart thing and made it into a hot chocolate or something equally as warm.

I microwaved it for 30 seconds and then drizzled it over a scoop of light vanilla ice cream.
It was like eating ice cream with MELTED cookies on top.  I mean...seriously.  It was so good.  So so good.  Now to tackle a day of NOT eating cookie butters for 3 square meals todayJ  BETTER GET OUT MY LEMON WATER! hahahahahhahaa

Enjoy your Wednesday, everyone!  (seesh...even with the "extra day," I'm still on 'day ahead syndrome' and was about to type 'Thursday'...bleh)
