Birthday-Palooza: Saturday

I am well fed - no news there. But I continue to enjoy eating this bithday-palooza weekend, even though it's eerily similar to many other non-palooza Saturdays I've had...

1. Break from oatmeal! Breakfast of spinach-feta frittata, facon and stove-top biscuit (so good! I am making more of these soon).

2. Lunch creation: makeshift mole. This was kind of a weird idea in the flavor department, but it kinda worked well, at least for a first try. Just a pile of broccoli slaw on its last legs and a can of tuna cooked in a sauce made of chocolate PB2 and spicy chipotle hummus. I ate some of it as a tostada on a Magic Pop and threw on some wasabi peas for more kick and crunch. I don't have the patience to type out the recipe cuz I'm mobile blogging right now, but drop me a line if you want more details.

3. The boyf is back from spring break so I'm a happy camper. We had a taste of Newman's Organics honey wheat pretzels this afternoon and they're fab - I'm not even a pretzel person, but I liked the salty-sweet honey flavor in these.

4. My own personal heaven in a box: pizza with pretty much every veggie available...and pepperoni cuz I'm classic like that. Plus a side of vice to wash it down.

5. And the cherry on top, my favorite froyo: Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie.

Seriously, it doesn't get much better. There's something to be said for being easy to please!

No worries, Heather. My bday is Monday! I think my birthday-palooza titles have been misleading. I am simply extending the celebration. :)
