Cu-runch!

March 1, 2011

First and foremost, HAPPY NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY!

So loves, how was your weekend?  I hope you had time to eat, drink and be merry and to watch the Academy Awards of course.

We had some friends over and I printed out ballots for us to fill in.  I’m sad to say I lost to my roommate Josh, once again.  Next year, Josh.  Next year.  We also popped our own popcorn for the first time (another Winter goal to cross of the list!) and I’m pretty sure Joey and I ate a majority of the two bowls by ourselves.

We also had a pre-show dinner of homemade shrimp fried rice, because who says Chinese food can’t be made healthy?

This recipe is from Cooking Light and it’s really easy and the result is some delicious tasting fried rice, minus the extra calories.

It also took care of my newly developed obsession with peas.  I was eating handfuls of them out of the bag while we cooked – frozen or not, peas are awesome!

It was a great end to the weekend, which as usual, went faster than I’d like.

By the way, I did my regular weekend yoga schedule (one class Saturday, one class Sunday) and for some reason my hamstrings are really sore today.  What gives?  I’m going to pretend it’s because I pushed myself harder than usual 🙂

In reality, the only thing I pushed was my waistline by eating as many chickpea crackers as was possible on Saturday.

Talk about addicting!

You can find a full editorial on how to make these crackers here.

I took it upon myself to eat all the oddly shaped edge pieces.

I think I ate a whole pan standing in front of the oven.  Good thing there was a second and a third batch, made cinnamon sugary.

They look and taste like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and that’s perfectly fine with me!

I used to love that cereal, but for some reason I also seemed to drool milk all over myself while eating it.  Does that gross you out? 🙂

I have no doubt that Joey will eat both batches in one sitting, which only means I need to get to them first.

Now go eat some pancakes!

    I missed nat’l pancake day?! I’m so bummed now! I’ll just have to have pancakes for lunch or dinner or something. Or a pancake snack…
    Your crackers look like they turned out perfect. I tried making them the other day but had a little whoopsie. I can’t wait to try it again, because they still taste awesome. And yes, yes to cinnamon toast crunch!

    Love the fried rice dish, it looks incredibly delicious. I’ve been looking for a healthified fried rice recipe 🙂 And anything that tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch is a must try for me 😀

    Oooh…I want to try that fried rice dish from Cooking Light. I was so excited when I got that issue with all the “healthified take-out” recipes. What a genius idea…glad to see I’m not the only one who enjoys watching the Oscars! I actually won my ballot pool, which was kind of embarrassing since I was the one who put on the prediction contest in the first place. It’s like when you give presents to yourself on your birthday (aka. kinda lame). Haha…
