I finished my first loaf of Ezekiel bread, woohoo!!! Someone suggested I try the sesame seed flavor next…so I did.
I have to say, it was pretty darn tasty. I enjoyed the flavor more than the regular wheat version, but I’m not saying I’d never go back to the wheat. This is a good change-up for me!
After my workout was the usual.
The rest of the afternoon was spent working, sipping on green tea, and snacking on these.
And before I knew it, it was time for me to get ready for a dinner party I had this evening with my friends. It was a celebration for one of my friends who just proposed his dissertation. Of course, I wanted to bring something sweet for after dinner, but I wanted to try a healthier dessert. So, Miss Chris Creations came to the rescue again! I like that her recipes are simple (for the culinary-ignorant like myself), unique, and always delicious. I decided to try her Peanut Butter Chip Cookies.
I had to taste test them before bringing them to my friends, of course, and I LOVED them! Seeing as they’re quite healthy, I thought they’d be very blah and not satisfy a sweet tooth at all, but I was wrong. The ultimate test was having my friends try them. They all loved them, and almost everyone went back for seconds…SCORE! We all agreed they tasted very much like those no-bake peanut butter cookies, even though you do actually bake these. They were very easy to make and such a hit, so I will definitely be keeping this recipe. Double thumbs up, Miss Chris! 🙂
I had 3/4 of a caprese salad for dinner…oh and a champagne martini. It was a celebration, after all. Off to bed now!
