We had so much fun last night!
The goal was to uniquely flavor our creme brulee, panna cotta and bread puddings and I think Jack and I took it to the next level when we created our masterpiece: pancake pudding. Instead of bread, we made homemade pancakes and used syrup in the custard to make pancake-bread pudding. We also spotted it with chocolate chips. Let me just tell you, it smelled amazing. And, thinking outside of the box, we decided a perfect garnish (that we will do tonight) would be candied bacon. It might sound gross to you but I promise it will be really good….or at least very interesting. Our chef loved the idea! We also made a white chocolate mint creme brulee and a saffron coconut panna cotta. Tonight is the fun night where we get to do our first plate that incorporates our dessert plus garnishes and sauces that we made over the week. Then, the wines class is coming in and pairing our dessert with wine and champagne so we get to taste a little of everything. Fun!
We did, however, get out later than usual last night and I didn’t get home until midnight, which means I probably didn’t fall asleep until 1:00. So….I skipped my workout. I still woke up at around the same time I usually do, which means I technically should have gone to the gym, but I decided to lounge around and be lazy instead.
For breakfast this morning I made a bagel sandwich using 2 egg whites and 1 egg yolk and 1 slice of provolone cheese on one of my Rudi’s bagels. I looooooove egg sandwiches. I had this old (gross, really) sandwich press in college and I would make the best ever melty egg paninis all the time for lunch or breakfast. So, so, so good. I also had a banana and a cup of english breakfast tea.
For lunch I’m packing tuna salad, which I made with chunk light tuna (one of those packets), a squirt of dijon mustard, a spoonful of nayonaisse and some relish. With it I’m bringing about 20 kashi crackers, a small baggie of baby carrots (sorry not pictured, I thought of these after the fact!) some cornichon pickles and a container of grapes with a yogurt for later.
Ryan has been in LA for business and just took the red eye back last night! I told him just to pretend he was going to France (we both can’t really sleep on planes)….it was very strange going to sleep last night knowing he was leaving to fly across the country! He’s SO tired!
