WIAW #2

I had so much fun sharing with you in last weeks WIAW post so I am here for round 2! Here is a look at my Tuesday eats.

I started my day with my Protein Pancake. It tastes so good that I find myself wanting to make one for every meal.

Next up was Chobani Mango yogurt. I opened it for my daughter but ended eating almost the whole thing. (Whoops)

For lunch I made a salad with apples, egg, carrots, strawberries, sunflower seeds, spinach and Annie’s dressing.

Snack time was a large apple and homemade cashew butter. Such a perfect combination!

Dinner was a taco salad with free range beef, spinach, lettuce, avocado, carrot and a side of scrambled farm fresh eggs. I topped it with plain Greek yogurt and salsa. It was very satisfying.

And dessert was a chocolate covered marshmallow. I like to keep them in the freezer and then they do not melt in your hands. Yum!

That is a wrap for today yesterday.


Thank you Jenn for hosting WIAW. Be sure to head over to her site for lots more.

QUESTION:

Do you eat dessert after dinner?

What is your favorite?

I usually always crave something sweet and I think it tastes better if it comes out of the freezer. See you next time.

 

DIY Marshmallow PEEPS

My daughter loves Peeps. I on the other hand think they are great for projects….buy not so great for eating. I am not sure what is in there besides corn syrup, preservatives and dye. So, we decided to try making our own. First we make marshmallows and then we turn them into little chicks. Not as easy as it sounds but we did our best and had a lot of fun!

I followed this recipe to make the marshmallow. Thank you Lauren! Before the marshmallow set, I put it into a ziplock bag and cut the corner (or use a pastry bag if you have one) to pipe the marshmallow into ‘peep like’ shapes. Marshmallow is very sticky so you will want to powder a baking pan with flour or sugar of your choice until it sets. We used colored sprinkles,  coconut and chocolate to decorate. We melted organic dark chocolate chips with a little creamed coconut and made dots for the eyes. Then we used the leftover chocolate to dip the extra marshmallow pieces. The chocolate covered marshmallows were the best ones by far! So good if you keep them in the freezer.

QUESTION:

Do you buy Peeps at easter time?

We always do but not because I am a big fan but just for tradition… Here is another fun Peep project for little ones.

 Happy Spring!
