Getting carried away in the kitchen! (photo blog)

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Today has started off well. When I weighed, the scale stayed the same (HOORAY!), which confirms that I am indeed where I thought I was (see blog from yesterday). I did my Zumba workout, ate a yummy breakfast (love those banana pancakes with turkey bacon), and have been productive overall. Later I will do some ST before I go into work tonight.

Yesterday I was off work & my hubby was sick in bed, so I needed to stay home to take care of him. Soooooo, I COOKED a LOT!

Sweet Potato Chips

Recipe: recipes.sparkpeop

I did not use the sugar, but I did add creole seasoning.

Zucchini Chips

Seasoned with garlic powder & oregano, cooked same as sweet potato chips above.

White Potato Wedges

Seasoned with creole & cavander seasoning, cooked same as sweet potato chips above.

All together now!

High Protein Chicken Salad

Recipe: recipes.sparkpeop

Where would I be without Asparagus? Oh, how I love you!

Garden Vegetable Frittata (SP Recipes!)

I diced my tomatoes now, because it was hard to cut pieces with whole tomato slices.

Low Cal Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes (before frosting)

Low Cal Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes w/ Cream Cheese Frosting (less than 150 cal per cupcake!)

The muffin mix for the recipe is from this SP Recipe:

The cream cheese frosting was: 8 oz cream cheese, 2 tbsp honey, 1/4 cup powdered sugar

    Wow you DID cook a lot! It all looks delicious! I made pumpkin spice cupcakes for Thanksgiving. How did you make yours? It seemed to take forever for mine to get done in the middle!
