Cookie DayPosted: March 28, 2010 | |
I had a couple of glorious grocery runs today to Whole Foods and Wegman’s and my joy of food has returned! I was also able to find Florida Strawberries and some pickled okra to cheer me up!
Before I set out I had a mix of yogurt and cold cereals.
Stonyfield plain, TJs fiber cereal, Uncle Sam, vanilla almond granola (I will be making my own once this runs out!) When I returned from my 3 hours of food shopping I dug right into my favorite Whole Foods cookie (vegan ginger spice) and I made a ice raspberry chocolate coffee. I really like this flavor coffee.
I made some changes by using – unsweetened coconut, chocolate chips instead of chocolate bar, whole wheat flour instead of white and 1/4 cup less brown sugar than the recipe called for.
Along with my first cookie I had 1/2 of a Wegman’s whole grain bagel with flax topped with basil and some Dubliner cheese.
I also had a baby green monster to get my greens in!
After lunch I went to town cleaning the apartment like there was no tomorrow. Dust bunnies grown very quickly while you are not around!
I finished promptly at 5pm to watch a nail bitter DUKE vs. Baylor game. Final Four baby! This year as been nuts! The only number one to make it probably had the worst odds.
At half time I got started on a lovely Sunday night dinner.
FISH! Trying to eat more!
Tonight I got some Rockfish aka Striper for northerners (ME!).
I marinated it in honey, thyme and S&P then grilled on the griddler…I almost had a small fire.
This was so moist and flaked perfectly!
Along with my fish I made up some wheat berries that I combined with some sautéed onions and garlic with a touch of white wine and parsley.
All together now.
What is missing? Something green!
I had a dark chocolate coconut cookie for dessert. They remind me of mounds bars. Mom and I were just talking about them on Sanibel!
Now it is time to watch the second half of Life (with Oprah, blah), it is mammals tonight!
See you in the morning for oats!
