Behind The Butter

Now, For a Day Off


Now, finally a day off tomorrow after working almost 24 hours in two days. Bah. Tonight I made SIX desserts instead of the one I made last night. It was quite the improvement. My station was all set up at 7 and I was ready to roll:


I made four chocolate desserts like the one I posted last night and two of these apple desserts:


Thats a mini apple oat tart, a scoop of calvados ice cream and a mini caramel apple, all with cider caramel sauce.

I took more pictures of savory items as well tonight…because they looked SO amazing!

Here’s the caesar salad:


The wedge salad:


And, last but not least, the lobster potpie. I would be all over this!


Yep, our culinary team is very talented indeed! Our executive chef was actually named executive chef of the YEAR by the American Culinary Federation a few years ago!!!

In regards to my dinner, I really liked the Kashi meal! I was surprised and pleased that it actually filled me up! Usually small frozen dinners seem to go right through me….this was very filling for only being 300 calories! Regardless, I dug into the a-m-a-z-i-n-g maple nut clif bar a few hours later πŸ™‚

I’ll see you in the morning!

ooh! Forgot to add that I made more bagels today!!! There was leftover dough so I made two mini bagels to take home. Perfect for snackies!

    I love how cute and miniature that cute apple dessert is! I feel like that would be the perfect apple “sampler” dessert to split just to have a sweet taste. πŸ™‚ I’m also thinking I may have to add bagels to my list of baking projects to try. Can’t wait!

    Love the presentation on the apple desert. Well, I also love apple anything, but it was cool. That’s a cesar salad. Wow! I thought it was some strange new veggie sushi. Man, I would love to eat at the club. Bet you can’t wait for Adam to be back.

    Fitness Surfer,

    I know! The caesar salad is amazing looking…and that’s actually blanched leeks that forms the “wrap” around the romaine. I guess when you blanch the leek skin it becomes pliable! How cool is that?! And YES I can’t wait until Tuesday when Adam comes back!!!!!
