I promised Kevin I’d make French toast this morning, and I think the first thing out of his mouth this morning was,”Are you still making French toast?!”
Skinny French Toast Cups (via Run Eat Repeat)
First mix the following in a bowl:
2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg beaters
1 packet of Truvia and a dash of each: cinnamon, salt, vanilla
Dip 2 slices of bread into the egg mixture soaking thoroughly.I used UDI’s Sourdough.
Spray a two cups in a muffin tin with non-stick spray. Then, gently stuffy one piece of bread into each cup. Press down to make sure they are touching down. Remove from the muffin pan carefully so the “cup” stays together.
In a separate bowl mix – 1/4 c ricotta and 1/4 c cottage cheese (or all of one) with 1 packet of Truvia and dash of cinnamon. Divide the mixture between the French toast cups.
Done! So delicious. I used cottage cheese, but I put it in the blender so Kevin wouldn’t notice. He’s not a fan of cottage cheese. Weirdo. I tweaked Monica’s recipe a bit, switching sugar to Truvia.
Boyd always manages to find a perch right underneath the food I’m taking photos of… just hoping something will drop! He has no life. Lol.
My kitchen had a life today…
Oh yeah. I did some cooking & baking today. I have double refreshments tomorrow! One for church in the morning, and one for our marriage class in the afternoon. I always end up cooking eleven things at once and today was no exception. Totally ready for a bigger kitchen!! :)
Today’s WOD: Straight from GPP Fitness again.
5 rounds for time -
- 1 min OH DB run 15/20
- 15 plank snatches R 15/20
- 20 T2T tap down crunches (starts and ends in the “crunched” position)
- 15 plank snatches L 15/20
- 30 sec rest.
Um. Those overhead dumbbell runs were no joke. I had to do them on the treadmill. 4.3 was the highest I got, and even then I was starting to get a little nervous!! I wouldn’t recommend doing them on the treadmill. THe plank snatches were pretty awful too. I had to take some breaks and do jumping jacks because I couldn’t hold myself up any longer. I actually wanted to quit! That’s really not normal for me so it was definitely a lot tougher then I expected. All that arms & abs. Awesome.
I did 15lbs on the dumbbell runs and 10 lbs for about half the snatches. Then I broke down and did 5′s. 8′s would probably have been manageable, but I didn’t have them over at the apartment gym. And it was still really tough! I finished in 29:20.
It was super hot today so we were nice to the Boykin and took him for a little swim. He’s such a high-maintenance dog. All the other dog owners stand in the shade and look at their smartphones. Not us! We have to chase Boyd from side of the fountain to the other. If we don’t catch him when he gets out, he’s always shaking off on a stranger (so annoying) or being a little overly friendly with other dogs.
I was starving by the time dinner rolled around
Heard over dinner: “Meat is so overrated.” “This is like adult spaghetti.” So adult that it was too complicated for Kevin to put together a second helping. Lol. We also had some little homemade whole wheat bread sticks because I had some leftover dough from another project. Can I even TELL you how good our apartment smells tonight!? I love it.
Clean or messy in the kitchen? I make sure it’s clean every night after dinner, but I will admit that I like to have everything out at once. And then to clean the whole mess up later. None of this cleaning as you go along business.
Have you been swimming yet this summer? We got in the pool for at least a full ten minutes tonight. Kevin: “Are you going to swim with our kids!?!” I didn’t get my hair wet. Lol. And it was tempting to bring my iPhone into the pool. It did make a brief appearance in the hot tub. I think next time we go, we need some pool toys. I can make Kevin dive for those little sticks!
