It's been a busy few days away from blogging. Since then, I've rediscovered my love of iChat's video function and chatted with TKH twice in one day. I've eaten enough zucchini and sugar free pudding to last me a lifetime and I've experienced the true meaning of drunk brunch.
I'm sitting in my bed, streaming Katy Perry's new album on Facebook, watching Food Network and perusing J.Crew.com for Fall Clothing. The weather is dreary and I'm cuddled up in my blanket LOVING my life. The only thing I'm missing is my dog and a cup of cocoa. The chilly weather has me thinking of Fall and all deliciousness that is sweaters, boots and tights.
I mentioned yesterday that I start South Beach today. In honor of my 2 weeks of NO carbs and NO sugar, I've decided to post 2 of my favorite "SB" friendly recipes! Fake-out Frozen Yogurt 1 cup of 0% Greek Yogurt ( I like Fage) 1 packet of Splenda A few dabs of Vanilla Extract 1 Dash of Cinnamon 8 Almonds
Directions: Mix everything together and put in the freezer for 10-15 min. It won't be totally frozen, but the already creamy yogurt gets even thicker when chilled. SOOOO good.
Roasted Asparagus and Havarti Cheese Omelette 4-5 stalks of Roasted Asparagus 2 Eggs Splash of Skim Milk 1 Piece of Havarti Cheese Salt Pepper Butter
Directions: It's an omelette...it's not that hard to make, but I love the combination of Havarti and Asparagus. Roasting Asparagus is super easy. All you need is a pyrex, asparagus, olive oil and salt and pepper. I usually roast them at 400 til they are getting dark and the tops look crispy.
Everyone loves a good makeover story. The tale of a "plain jane", transformed by the magical powers of MAC cosmetics, a good blow-out and a new wardrobe. Overnight she's gotten 10x hotter, lost about 15 pounds and is now Prom Queen. Unfortunately my High School experience didn't end like "She's All That", and I didn't gracefully trip down my parents steps into the arms of the quarterback. With that being said, i'm convinced it will happen...eventually. When it does, my internal soundtrack will play in slow motion, the wind will blow my hair back, and the perfect guy will realize that I'm the perfect girl.
Until then, I have my movies, books and the occasional TV show.
...oh, and I'll always have Taylor Swift and her new song "Mine".
