But not all three at the same time!
Yesterday’s eats were a lot of fun. For dessert after lunch (leftover pasta and asparagus) I portioned up a couple small pieces of cornbread and topped them with some vanilla bean, elderflower, and pear confit purchased through my CSA a couple weeks ago. For my Austin readers, check out Confituras, a local specialty preserves maker. Her stuff is AMAZING and can be found at a few shops around town and a couple of the farmer’s markets. Creatively complimentary flavor combinations!
For a late afternoon snack since I knew it would be a while before dinner, I whipped up a pumpkin smoothie.
- frozen banana pieces (hence why they are just hovering in that tupperware, they’re stuck there)
- 1 cup of canned pumpkin
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
- splash of vanilla
Thrown in the blender and served in my signature cup. 🙂
This was perfectly filling and held me over for hours.
Alex, Crystalyn (the bestie/roomie), and I went to dinner at Pho Saigon, where I had the best bowl of seafood pho.
My first time trying fish balls, and they were FREAKIN’ FANTASTIC! There’s something about hot noodle-y soup that is just perfect on cold nights. I ate myself silly, and when we got home Alex made our first fire of the season!
I whipped up this morning’s breakfast ahead of time so I can sleep a little later and eat it in the car. A perfectly portable peanut butter, banana, and pumpkin sandwich!
This will definitely keep me full through my first class until lunchtime!
I also want to congratulate my blogger friend, Heather, on the birth of her first child, a beautiful baby girl! Congratulations, sweet Heather!! She is perfect and I know you will be the best mom!
With that I’m off. I hope everyone has a great Saturday!
