Biscotti

I had a lovely rare Wednesday off today. =) I stayed in bed until about 8:30am and then, at my leisure, cooked up a hot breakfast.

Kodiak cakes topped with plain nonfat yogurt mixed with a little maple syrup, a fresh peach, and drizzle of sunflower seed butter. Yum yum! I think I prefer no yogurt and instead a glass of milk but it was fun to mix it up a bit.

I got a ton of things on my To Do list done this morning including hitting the gym for 60 minutes hill stationary biking. It surprisingly didn’t kill me! I plowed through it without feeling weak. ❤

It also left me hungry for lunch at noon. I heated up a can of TJ’s Low Sodium Minestrone (added some S&P and spices) and toasted an English muffin with cheddar cheese on top.

Another check on my to do list was to make my very own first batch of biscotti! My father gave me his recipe while I was visiting last month so I tweaked it to try out my own. This coconut walnut biscotti isn’t perfect yet, so I’m not going to share the recipe until then. As you can see though, I had major major issues melting the white chocolate I was going to drizzle on it. I did two batches before I got it to melt without burning and by then I hardly had any chocolate left. I gave up before that though and ate one with the bunrtish feta-like white chocolate with a glass of skim milk.

I ended up eating this twice over the day after I fell asleep for like 4 hours. >.< Chase tried one too and gave it a 6 out of 10 and we talked about what I needed to improve on. I promise to keep trying until I have an excellent recipe to share!

Around 8pm I realized I was getting pretty hungry for dinner so I got back in the kitchen and threw together an easy and tassty dish. Using two leftover lasagna noodles, I shredded them apart and cooked them in some tomato sauce with TJ’s Meatless Meatballs. I then topped it with sautéed zucchini and ricotta cheese. Nom nom!

Which watching Misty May and Kerry Walsh win gold in women’s beach volleyball, I munched on some fresh cherries. I love fresh fruit! I chopped up a bunch and put them in the freezer to try out some cherry banana soft serve soon. ~.^

Biscotti fan?
