My sweet tooth struck! I concocted the best little dessert tonight….I took some of the snicker’s frozen yogurt that we bought last night and added 1 square of my dark chocolate that I chopped up. It.was.amazing. And…only 150 calories! I think I’m going to stop by this yogurt place tomorrow before I drive back and buy some for my own freezer and pack it in my lunchbox to take home with me! Yes, it’s THAT good!!! 🙂
Dessert calories = 150

Wow, you’re entire dinner and dessert looks incredible! Two questions for the day please 🙂
-When you say you want to be a food writer what exactly does that mean? Like a critic?
-I just got the list from the organic farm near my school. They are sending me a “healthy box” twice a month with fresh fruits and veggies. When I get back I’m going to have Red Anjou Pears, Grapefruit, Lemon, 2 lbs of Green beans, 3 lbs of Green Cabbage, Baby Carrots, .5 lb of Garlic, 1 Green leaf lettuce, 5 lbs of Russet potatoes and 1 bunch of Spinach… my question regards the vegetables. I was wondering if you could think of any recipes that incorporate most, if not, all of them? I don’t want any to go to waste!
Sorry if these will take you a while, I really appreciate you always answering my inquiries! You’re the best, thanks!

yum Jenna!! Your dinner looks so wonderful! I’m going to start using my crock pot more so healthy, warm dinners will be ready for me when I get home after class!! I’m thinking tons of soup!! I’m leaving now for the airport to come home from Maui and I won’t be home to KY for 24 hrs…bummer- but I’m going to make a grocery list so I can stop by on the way home tomorrow night~ Take care girl!
p.s. do you live near Sarasota? My grandparents live there and I always go visit them!!

Wow Danielle…that idea sounds so awesome! How did you find out about that and is it expensive? What a great way to get your fruits and veggies!! If you are looking to use up all those quickly, I might make a big batch of veggie stew or potato soup to eat and freeze. You certainly have a lot of potatoes! I have never really used cabbage that much so I’m not sure about how to go about using 3 lbs of it but i am going to think and get back to you.
I love spinach though and the Greek White Bean Soup (in recipes section) uses fresh spinach as well as garlic, and that was very tasty and froze nicely as well. it’s hard to use up all that lettuce before it goes bad but I would just eat as many salads as you can!
Oh, and I LOVE red pears! They are wonderful poached like I did last week with some water, cinnamon and a little sugar and served with vanilla ice cream, warm. SO GOOD!
I’ll do some more thinking and get back! 🙂
Oh yes—and when I say I want to be a food writer it means I want to write cookbooks for a living and do some critic work…I’ve been trying forever to get in with the local newspaper here and work with their restaurant critic but it’s so hard unless you have super connections. In the future (after I graduate), I would love to start my own business doing personal grocery shopping and meal planning for people and maybe do some personal chef work on the side 🙂

Wow, Mel! You were in Maui! That sounds amazing this time of year…I always use the latter end of long flights to write my grocery lists! I’ve been working on one all week actually and will be going to the grocery store as well tonight to shop!
Oh, and Tampa is relatively near sarasota…maybe 45 minutes? Orlando isn’t but I consider Tampa my home, Orlando is just very very temporary. After I graduate I’m moving back here 🙂
