I tried 3 new things today!
New Food #1:
I finally tried an Amy’s Bowl. It smelled really good heating up at work – in fact, 2 people asked me what I was having while it was in the microwave!
Since I didn’t know what it would taste like, I did bring a little salsa to spice it up a bit ;)
I really liked it. I’m definitely going to buy more Amy’s meals when I can find them on sale.
New Food #2:
The Lemon Larabar
This is one of my new favorites! I loved the bright, fresh lemon flavor in this bar – it tastes like a lemon dessert bar and didn’t have that “fake” lemon flavor.
New Food #3:
I got out one of my favorite cookbooks from Real Simple for dinner tonight.
Tonight, Nick and I each made our own Deep Dish Polenta Pizza.
I doubled the crust recipe so Nick and I could add our own toppings (and have leftovers).
I made a quick pizza sauce with crushed tomatoes and some seasonings and then added on my toppings!
- diced chicken
- diced red/orange/yellow peppers
- mix of cheddar and mozzarella
- black olives
While we couldn’t pick up the pieces like normal pizza, we both really liked it! It was fun putting them together, and they tasted great with the polenta crust.
I had half of my “pizza” tonight, along with some broccoli.
We just got back from a walk with Maggie and are winding down for the night.
Fun breakfast (and lunch) tomorrow! I love getting excited about new food ideas ;)
