Cake, Cookies and O.A.R.!Posted: August 9, 2009
Sorry for the delay in posting…this weekend has been super busy with music, baking and a little booze.
The rest of Friday went a little like this…
Salad with FM lettuce, patty pan, carrots and black beans covered in EVOO, lemon juice and S&P. Last of the laughing cow with kashi crackers…nice packaging right! Lastly a few strawberries and an Adora disk.
After work I had to rush around making a travel pack of goodies for Nick and I because we were heading to O.A.R.!!!! On the way I had a wrap with avocado, havarrti, hummus, lettuce and hot sauce.
I also made myself a margarita to-go cup in my blender bottle.
The gentlemen at the event. Some not so ready for the picture…
Looks sort of like a polo convention.
Great concert with great people!
On the way home we munched on some sun chip and a Larabar Jamfraka. I was not a fan of this bar and neither was Nick. Dry and odd tasting. Oh well, try everything once.
I started the day off with 3 miles of speed work. It was hard, but I got it done.
Next I moved onto breakfast
Two pieces of toast with almond butter, flax, strawberry jam and naner. I also had an iced coffee while I planned my attack on making this cake to the right from Real Simple.
After some sustenance I head to the farmers market. And thus the began the baking and 80s music dancing session.
I started off making the Maryland nectarine upside down cake from Real Simple. I made a few changes to this recipe to make it healthier. I used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and I halved the butter and replaced it with apple sauce.
This was delicious! Really moist from the yogurt and so summery and light! While this was cooking, I also made the chocolate mint melties from Eat Drink and Be Vegan.
These were also super dark chocolate and mint yummies! Two dessert successes in one day!
I brought these to Nick’s sisters house warming party and only a little cake remained when I left.
At the party I had a mix to taco dip, crab dip, spinach and artichoke dip, three different types of salad, 3 deviled eggs, a ton of pita chips and of course a pieces of my cake! Sorry no pics, new people, might have thought I was a little weird…
