I was able to get my 4 mile run in over lunch but opted to skip yoga to get cracking on my HW. It was the right decision and I even had time for some P90x.
My meals this week have been……interesting. I apologize, I’m trying to avoid a grocery trip because we are heading out-of-town this weekend. When I got home and checked out the veggie situation, I knew I was going to have to be creative to say the least. Thankfully, I bought portabella mushrooms from the market and got to work. I coated them in a some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic and Penzeys rib rub.
I sautéed these bad boys and then last-minute decided to throw some turkey bacon into the mix as well. Look how nicely the mushrooms absorbed the liquids. Yum.
I found a package of frozen italian veggies in the freezer and decided that would work as the bed for my shrooms’n’bacon. On a whim, I threw about 1/2 cup of leftover angel hair spaghetti into the pan to soak up the remaining liquid.
A bit strange, but tasty and let’s face it crumbled goat cheese makes everything better. My sous-chef for the evening was thoroughly confused.
This is Ralphie, our lovable 10-month-old lab mix. Isn’t he adorable?
I bet you’re wondering about the title of this post, right? That would be referring to my fantastic dessert. I’ve already told you about my beloved banana soft serve, but I haven’t told you about my second favorite dessert; avocado mousse. I was craving banana soft serve and chocolate tonight which gave me an idea. 🙂
I was making dessert for one, so into the food processor went about 1/2-2/3 of a frozen banana. I let that spin for about a minute and then added 1/3 of an avocado, a few tbsp of almond and lastly a heaping spoonful of cocoa.
OMG. Please stop what you are doing and make this dessert for yourself, it was amazing. I loved the creamy consistency that the avocado added and because the banana is already really sweet I didn’t need to add any agave or sweetener to balance the cocoa. Honestly, I think I could get my father to eat this dessert.
I think I will dream about this tonight.
