WIAW: I Am the Carb Queen
Wasn’t the low-carb fad stupid?
Carbs provide you with energy. And allow your brain to function. And taste damn good.
As I was going through pictures of what I ate yesterday, I realized I’m a carb fiend. And damn proud.
Apparently my love of carbs also causes me to use the word “damn” a lot.
But enough talking, and more showing.
Unpictured banana half + a smear of peanut butter.
Yes, “a smear” is an exact measurement.
Aka, the fluffiest pancakes ever.
I saw Heather make these a few days ago, and knew they had to be mine.
And she was right, they are fantastically fluffy.
Besides the fact that these were insanely fluffy, I think what made them so good was the fact that they involved brown sugar. My usual pancakes don’t have any sugar at all, so these had my taste buds dancing.
I halved the recipe, made 7 fluffy pancakes, ate 3.5 and saved the other half for later this week — score!
Tea on the side.
Assembled at my parents’. Because feeding yourself other people’s food is always more fun.
If only it had been my mom’s homemade mac and cheese, too.
Only this is a recycled picture and it was actually almonds, raisins, peanuts and chocolate chips. And I actually did take a picture, I’m just too lazy to go get my camera. <— Bad blogger.
Eaten at another horribly played Rockies game. It was the last game I’ll attend for the season and not a good note to end on.
Even though Tulo made a special guest appearance. And struck out…
Nighttime/post cold Rockies game snack:
Um no, I did not eat a whole loaf of zucchini bread. I don’t love carbs that much.
But I did have a slice. And some warm almond milk. Are you surprised?
Most of the time, I try to make my baked goods healthy, but I wanted real zucchini bread. With regular old flour, sugar and oil. So sue me.
It’s moist, it’s dense but not overly so and it’s delicious. Just the way zucchini bread should be.
So I think I had the bases covered yesterday — pancakes, pasta, bread and… more bread. Go me!
Are you a carb fiend as well?
What’s your favorite baked good?
