I started this blog because I like to take pictures of the things I cook, and I LOVE to share those photos with family and friends. This week I realized it's not just food that I like to take pictures of... it's basically everything! So here is my week of food-related photos...
Tall Skinny Vanilla Latte in a Starbucks holiday cup... It ALWAYS tastes better in the holiday cups!! Tall is only 2 WW Points, and grande and venti are only 3 WW Points. This is my new obsession.
(It says, "Who's to blame? Industry - and mom and dad - fueling kids' fast-food addictions, study finds.")
This was the cover of AMNY one morning... I love that the public is becoming more conscious of what they're eating, but it seems as if nothing is really changing. It saddens me, and I hope to help change that.
This was kind of a good idea gone wrong... In theory, a Deep Chocolate VitaTop with 1/2 cup of Dole Sliced Strawberries sounds delicious. However, when you thaw the strawberries in the microwave, you must drain the strawberries before you put them on the plate with your VitaTop or you will have a VitaSoggyMess. I immediately removed the VitaTop from the plate, and ate the two things separately. Maybe next time I won't be so lazy!!
For some reason, when I woke up this morning and was browsing recipes, I was feeling rather fruity. I came across Hungry Girl's Coconut-Glaze Fruit Salad in her 200 Under 200 book, and I felt inspired. Chopping and slicing fruit is simple and fast, and the finishing product was extremely delicious!! It's basically apple, banana, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and peaches with a glaze made of fat free yogurt, coconut milk, coconut extract, and lime juice. 1 cup = 2 WW Points. My whole family loved it!
Staying on the fruit theme, I decided to tackle Hungry Girl's Apple iCobbler. Mine didn't come out looking exactly like hers, but it tasted great! My brother even said "Thank You," which is a truly rare act. Needless to say 1 cup = 2 points, and it was a great dessert.
Next weekend is my mother's birthday, and I think she wants to go out for dinner (LAME - I want to cook for her!!). I know I'm going to order her an Edible Arrangements instead of baking a cake, and even though that lessens my cooking opportunities, the chocolate-dipped fruit is absolutely worth it! Somehow, I will find some way to work in the kitchen next weekend... any ideas? requests? what's everyone craving lately?
Until next time... Happy Eating,
