Baking Fail, and rainy days

Rain Rain Go away...

I am not sure about anyone else out there but here in Florida this is what we have been looking at for 3 days not...

These are from the car and my backyard...Pretty much the same sight day after day! I am all for the rainy days, but I prefer them on days I can sit at home and drink a cup of coffee from the comfort of my own couch. Oh well I digress...

There is one thing that makes this day a little brighter, if you will... it's WIAW!!!!! We all know how much I love my Wednesday Food Stalker Sessions.

Before we get started with WIAW and Today's Fit Challenge check out what has been going on this week so far in my world...

Ok Now on to the goodies that I call my daily eats...
A big thank you to Jenn for hosting my favorite party for another week :o)
Peas and Crayons
This is where my FAILED baking comes in. I tried out Baked oatmeal for the first time and I was super excited. I pulled it out of the oven, it smelled SO GOOD it looked good... but I bit in and WOMP WOMP... WELCOME TO BLAND-VILLE haha. Well I sucked it up because I do not like to waste food and decided the texture was great it just had little flavor. So I decided. Why not just top it with some "flavor" lol so I drizzled honey over the top and sliced a kiwi on top. Brian loved it this way... TEHE i am a sneaky sneaky girl. Oh well if at first you dont succeed try try again... so hopefully soon I will be posting a DELISH recipe for you, not just one that smells DELISH :o)

Breakfast: Baked Oatmeal topped with Kiwi and 2 egg whites. 

 Snack during my training at work: Think Thin bar, Roasted chickpeas and a banana
 Lunch:  yesterday's recipe FIESTA CHICKEN! On a Flax seed pita

Snack: Hummus with a few pretzels and LOTS of cucumbers

 Dinner Out: Mediterranean Salad topped with salmon. 
Not Pictured: A few bites of cake. I went out for a friends retirement party and they served me cake. I would have felt really bad if I just left the entire thing. So I nibbled a little then pushed it to the side. HEY you gotta live a little right?

I know this was a long post but I hope you enjoyed and I hope you have a new workout to pin :o)

Ciao and retirement time (I wish)



  1. It is so disappointing when you have high hopes for something and it just doesn't deliver! Hope your next batch is spot on :)

    1. Ya I just need some more spices or flavor booster with fresh fruit... I think it will be a pretty easy fix... Just refuse to throw it away so we are eating the whole batch this week haha

  2. I love ThinkThin bars, and the Chunky PB flavor is my favorite...it tastes just like a Snickers bar, only a bit healthier :)

    1. I was new to the bars but I got an awesome deal with coupons so I only pay $1.00 for 2 haha But They are pretty good!

  3. Gosh this all looks so good. LOVE the Think Thin PB bars! I always eat my recipe fails too. I can't afford to waste food :)
