Yum! And the best part, these are not sickening sweet like cinnamon rolls often can be, the perfect amount of sweetness (a much better option than my choices last night).
Pretty sure I’m all set with the carbs.
Drunken Noodles from Sugar & Spice for lunch.
And some wheat pasta, crushed tomatoes and parmesan for dinner.
Yep, you could say I’m officially carbo loaded for half-marathon time on Sunday. I’m still having that leg pain which is obnoxious, but I’m not really wanting to pass on this race so I’m going to go for it.
Apparently I’m writing my post backwards today, because I meant to start with a meal from earlier this week. It had been a super long and exhausting day. All I wanted to do was go out to eat, but Ben reminded me of our budget and our “dining out/grocery shopping” category is often a bit overspent (okay, more than a bit). We finally harnessed it in this past month, but it took us three months to get there.
Regardless, I knew I wasn’t in the mood for super healthy or something really lengthy to prep and cook. I happened to remember on my drive home that I had a pie crust waiting to be used in the freezer and some eggs so I stopped at the store for some cheese and prosciutto. It was time for some comfort food, a delicious meal my mom prepared for us growing up. My mom’s Quiche Lorraine!
I normally won’t enjoy Quiche ordered out at a restaurant, because I always expect it to taste like my mom’s and it never does. Normally we would saute some chopped onion and fry bacon and crumble it, but since I was being very lazy and I chopped up prosciutto and diced shallots (without cooking them) for the added flavor.
And this is where I really got into trouble. Whole Food’s caramel apple dip. Have you had it? It’s delicious and addictive. But if you eat some with apple slices (appropriate), but then also continue to eat plain from the bowl you just might make yourself a little sick. Just saying. You also might get a disgusted look from Ben.
Does someone want to come over and take these Pumpkin Cinnamon rolls away from me? This is not headed in a good direction, help!
