What a morning!!! Can I just say—I LOVE baking class!!!!!!
Today was my first day of the three week class and I knew I would love it when I walked in and it already smelled like a Parisian bakery…long wooden tables go down the center of the kitchen and huge stand mixers are against the wall. There’s a brick oven for baking pizza, an actual “closet” used just to keep bread in that’s rising, and about 15 other ovens for baking all kinds of things! Today we baked biscuits and we have to take home everything we bake so here I am now with a load of biscuits just sitting around in my kitchen and only me to eat them! Oh no!! I think I’m going to freeze them and bring them back out on a special occasion like when Ryan is here so I can make egg, bacon and cheese biscuits for him. They seriously smell amazing though and are about 4 inches high because of all the baking powder in them. Of course they have a TON of shortening in them as well!! I’m going to plug the ingredients into my software later on if I have time to get an accurate calorie count per biscuit but I’m sure they are quite quite high….special occasions only with these bad boys! Tomorrow we are baking scones and chocolate chip muffins…oh, and coffee cake! 🙂
When I got home from school I made a quick lunch of a veggie burger on one of those Thomas’ mini bagel breads that I pulled out of my freezer (seriously I freeze everything!). I melted some provolone cheese on top and put ketchup and honey mustard on it. I also had a sliced apple and 4 ounces of cottage cheese….oh, and a square of dark chocolate for dessert! My throat is still killing me (which is SO weird because other than that I feel perfectly fine but it’s so bad now it hurts to even sip on water) and at 3:30 I’m going back to the doctor…I wanted to get a workout in today though and also make a new soup recipe (for my throat!) so I think I’m going to make the soup right now and work out after the doctor, depending on what the doctor says of course!
See you in a bit!
This lunch (including a square of dark chocolate not pictured) about 520 calories.
Oh, and great news about my oatmeal breakfast! It kept me full a whole 4 hours this morning and when I snacked I only ate the 7 almonds out of my “snack mix”, leaving the cereal behind. Go oatmeal!
