My First Time…

Get your mind out of the gutter!  Today I did something I’ve never done before,  I baked!  Sure I’ve made some slice and bake cookies, but I really have never baked anything.  I don’t like cake, I don’t like sweets in general, really no reason for me to bake.  But I found a recipe I really wanted to try and had some ingredients I needed to use up so I found a recipe and gave it a try.  Success!  But more on that in a second, let’s get to my other eats for the day.

For breakfast this morning I decided to try a Cherry Fage 2% sample I recieved.  Holy crap you guys, this was great, reminded me of a cheesecake.  So yummy!

I can’t wait to look for these in the store because it was seriously yummy, although I typically prefer 0% yogurt, this is something I would love to indulge in.  After I snapped this shot I mixed in some granola, took it to a whole other level.

For lunch I had a big romaine salad.

With a light caesar dressing.  On the side I also had 4 mini sweet peppers.

I also had 8 kashi crackers with pb.

This lunch was super filling and oh so good.

After work I had to go the chiropractor and then on my way home I snacked on some grapes.  Andrew took the pictures of the grapes for me since I was driving, can you tell I couldn’t wait for him to take the pictures before I had to start stuffing my face with them.

When I came home I decided to make an omelet.  I used 2 eggs, less then an ounce of mozz cheese, 2 peppers, and some onion.

Andrew decided to make potato pancakes to go with his dinner and made me a little guy.

I think I’ll keep him around, this was really delicious.

I also had another one of those ww onion rolls I picked up at Whole Foods last week.

So now onto my first baking project.  I used a recipe from the site Vegetarian Times, I made their Peanut Butter Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips.  The thing I changed from their recipe was I used smooth pb as that’s all I had instead of the crunchy the suggest.  It was a super easy recipe, and it came out perfectly.  I had no idea what I was doing and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

Here’s the bread:

And of course I had to sample it immediately.

I cut a small slice and split it with Andrew.  Wow, wow, wow, this was amazing.  Andrew said after eating his half.  “This is delicious, we have to make more, and you have to look up more recipes on that site because this is f***ing amazing.”  Nice mouth huh?  I kid, I’m much worse then him, but I censor myself as to not offend all you lovely ladies.

Anyway the recipe is a hit and I’ll be making more bread over the weekend.  You all are a bad influence, I caught the baking buck from you!  Well I’m off to read and then go to sleep, g’nite bloggies!

    Good job for not being that much of a baker! I love making bread from scratch – so much cheaper too! 😀

    You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate in bread! Yum, I bet it was great fresh out of the oven!

    I haven’t tried the Fage brand, I usually stick to Chobani b/c it is cheaper. I have seen it though with the mix-ins and it looks pretty good! I bet if you crushed a graham cracker on top it would taste even more like cheesecake!

    Congratulations on the success! It gets really addicting =P

    wow- your bread looks GREAT! I was hoping to bake some muffins soon, but the oven in my new apartment is…ah…kind of scary looking.

    I am glad you thought the fage tasted like cheesecake too- nobody believes me!
