I took a break from the gym this morning to just relax a bit. I had breakfast, sat on the couch while enjoying my coffee, played with Dexter…I hate rushing in the morning! For breakfast this morning I made a smoothie using 1 cup soy milk, 1 banana, 2 tbsp flax and some frozen peaches and blackberries. I also ate two muffins on the side. I started with just one then I kept picking at them so I decided to just have another. I probably could even go for a third (I’m not that full?) but I stopped myself. Smoothies are weird. Sometimes they really really fill me up and then sometimes they don’t…even when I use the same mix of ingredients. Strange.
I’m excited to have leftover soup for lunch today! This soup was soooo delicious, creamy and filling. I need to make it again soon! With my soup I’m packing a slice of homemade whole wheat bread with hummus, some fresh cut melon and, for later, a brown rice cake with almond butter and raspberry jam.
I was pleasantly surprised to get out of school not at midnight last night, but actually fifteen minutes early! We finished off our petit eclairs, made battenburg torte (almond cake that is two-toned pink and yellow, sandwiched together with apricot jam and rolled in marzipan) and made our doughs for tonight’s practical. Tonight I’m making more icebox cookies, madelines and almond macaroons. We are also starting the jaconde sponge cake for our Opera Torte (sponge cake with layers of ganache, opera syrup and coffee french buttercream…very classical and rich).
