Today we kept busy and did some baking. Charlie had requested cookies and I did not want to disappoint him. The first thing I made was Chocolate Bark which I topped half with salted cashew pieces and left the other half plain.
D was the taste tester and he approved.
The next goodie I made was indeed cookies for my honey. I made sugar cookie dough and stirred in a finely chopped Dark Chocolate with Orange chocolate bar. Instead of pressing the cookies with the bottom of a sugared glass I used the fork method. I thought that the extra sugar would be too much with the addition of the chocolate.
Charlie sampled both of the treats and loved them. He especially enjoyed the bark - I think he ate 4 pieces. He is a happy hubs tonight.
Here is a run down of my eats for the day.
AM snack – one of my favorite flavors.
Lunch was a salad - lettuce, broccoli slaw, red pepper, zucchini, cottage cheese and salsa. I also had Rice Crisps and two pieces of cheesy gluten free toast.
Lunch ended with a little sweet something – a Cocoa Loco bar.
As I was getting creative in the kitchen this afternoon I had to stop for a little snack. I topped 3 Corn Thins with cream cheese, cinnamon and apple slices.
Dinner was another salad concoction. This one contained lettuce, red pepper, artichoke hearts, chicken, hummus, pumpkin and Nut This. It really was a delicious combo of flavors.
For a simple dessert I had a rice cake topped with almond butter and unsweetened dried cherries and a Corn Thin topped with peanut butter and raisins.
It is just about time to tuck the little monkey into bed. I hope you had a great start to the week. Enjoy your night.
