Today is like any other day for me.
It’s not my Friday, it’s actually my Monday at work.
I don’t have a three day weekend. My job is a 365 day a week job. You don’t get holidays off unless it falls on your day off, or you take it off.
I don’t have any big Memorial Day plans, since… I have to work.
Though I wasn’t looking forward to today like everyone else was. I still wanted to feel like it was a “Friday night”.
For dinner I made one of the best pizzas I ever made. I started off with brushing the crust with olive oil and then mincing garlic. I spread it evenly around the crust before topping it with onion and tomato. I had a little bit of the barbecue chicken left so I threw that on there. A little spinach and mozzarella… omg. I’m going to pat myself on the back and say good job.
Ready to cook.
Nice and bubbly.
Ready to eat with a glass Cabernet Franc.
It was love at first bite.
While the pizza was cooking I thought I would prepare breakfast for in the morning.
I had bought this pancake mix at World Market
and thought it would be perfect for tomorrow’s breakfast. I through a little protein powder in the mix to make it a little more filling. I’ve seen protein pancakes throughout the blogosphere and thought they looked fantastic. Next time I’ll make mine from scratch.
That’s enough to get me by for a few days.
After I had finished my pizza and made my pancake I really wanted something…. good. Dessert good that is. I went through all of my recipes and found Jessica’s Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls. Don’t tell Jessica but I subbed the 1 stick of butter for 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup applesauce. I also used three different kinds of chips. The recipe calls for 3/4 chocolate chips, but I used 1/4 milk chocolate, 1/4 white chocolate, and 1/4 butterscotch.
Making this meant I got to use my ramekins for the first time!
Now I’m off to enjoy my dessert.
Make me jealous… What are your memorial day plans???
