Behind The Butter

A Little Snack..

For being such a big, meat-filled lunch I certainly got hungry not too long after! I started to get really hungry around 3:00 so I made an apple with peanut butter snack using 1 tbsp of my new honey peanut butter! I did this also so I wouldn’t be temped to get ice cream at the new ice cream shop that opened right outside Ryan’s apartment!


This snack was about 164 calories

Off to shower and get ready for the BBQ tonight! Hopefully my snack will keep me going until dinner because who knows when we will actually get there and eat!

    Hope you enjoyed the bbq! I’m driving back up to school tomorrow and have to do a major grocery shopping since we had to turn off our fridge while we were away and I emptied out most dry foods that would’ve gotten stale. Lucky me 🙂 I love buying food! Do you have any staples that you always keep on hand? because I’d like to keep my kitchen well-stocked so I can keep up with your delicious recipes! Also, I’d like to try pomegranates but aren’t sure where they’d be in the supermarket. Thanks!

    I just read your comment on french women’s eating habits…have you read the book French Women Don’t Get Fat? …I love this book and you describe it just the same…I was wondering if you are fluent in French or if you just spoke a liittle bit of it and were still able to live in Paris comfortably…I was in Paris for a 10 days this summer and made my boyfriend do most of the talking….by the way your cuban lunch looked delicious!

    I am DEF. NOT fluent in french!!!!!!! hardly! I took 4 years in high school then in college took italian for 4 years…so I dabble a bit in both 🙂 I found it to be not that bad though, actually being there and trying to communicate. I took a little pocket dictionary around with me, but just being so immersed in another country for 6 weeks really helped the most. I still couldn’t hold a fast paced conversation in french but I found that I knew enough to get around, get directions, order my dinner, ect. I guess it also helped that I was a blonde american girl. haha! I found the french people to be incredibly helpful though and would try to explain directions and stuff like that to me if I was lost.

    And yes, I LOVE that book!!! I just read her second book, “French food for all seasons” and love that one as well!
