Good Morning! No school pictures this morning because last night we went to a chocolate sculpture demo for 90 minutes by a visiting French pastry chef and then all we did was bake creme brulee and creme caramel to be finished off today. I used to really like creme brulee but lately custards haven’t been so appetizing. Maybe I grew out of it? I do love using the torch though to burn the sugar—that’s always fun! In this class we make more than custards, we make cheesecakes, quiches, sorbets, ice creams and mousses. Ryan is excited for the ice cream end of it, his favorite dessert! I was pretty hungry when I got home from school last night around 11:45 so I made a midnight snack of a piece of Ezekiel toast with jam. For some reason that’s the perfect late night snack for me. It always sounds so good.
This morning I woke up, ate half a banana with pb and went to they gym for some cardio. When I got home I opted against a big hot bowl of oats that made my tummy so queasy yesterday morning and instead made a fresh smoothie using mango, strawberries, banana, soymilk and 1 tbsp ground flax along with an english muffin with jam. Perfect!
I’m packing a wrap for lunch today. I used 3 slices of tofurky with about 1/4 of an avocado and honey mustard on a whole wheat tortilla. For those of you that haven’t tried it, the combo of avocado and tofurky is really really good. I’m also bringing two mini peaches from the farmer’s market and a rice cake with pb for a snack later on.
