What Goes Up, Must Come Down

Helllllllllllloooooooo my peoples! Happy day that comes after Wednesday that nobody likes because it is still not Friday! ūüėČ

So glad to see so many fans of socca after yesterday’s post! I’m craving another Mexican Socca Pizza now, just thinking about it!

I have been THIS excited since before work this morning to share my breakfast with you! While catching up on Ashley’s posts, I discovered something genius…cornbread for breakfast! Am I surprised by the source of such genius-ness? Not in the slightest!

Is it just me, or do you wanna lick the screen?

I followed Ashley’s Banana Cornbread Bake recipe to a tee and then topped it with 1/2 cup of Trader Joe’s plain low-fat Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of almond butter and honey.

I have always been a fan of cornbread (I was born in the South…it kind of comes with the territory) and I like it with a touch of sweetness. This bake was absolutely perfect,¬†like the love-child of healthy banana bread and cornbread!¬†I know some of you are probably skeptical about eating cornbread for breakfast, but believe me, this is something you want to try!

And I can’t even begin to tell you how well it went with the Greek yogurt, almond butter, and honey! Ohhh, I die! I rarely repeat breakfasts, but I cannot wait to have this again tomorrow!

You know what also goes well with almond butter? My appetizer for tonight’s dinner:

Cheddar flavored Food Should Taste Good tortilla chips!

Just trust me on this one!

As we all know, balance in life is inevitable. What goes up, must also come down. Which brings me to dinner…

Pretty, no?

Deceivingly underwhelming? Yes.

Ok, so it all started with the calavacita squash that I purchased this weekend. I spied it in the back of the fridge and thought it was time to finally bust it out. Buuuuut, I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with it…and it was 6:30…and my stomach was growling (hence the need for an “appetizer”).

I chopped it up, sprayed it with some cooking spray, sprinkled it with S&P, and threw it in the oven to roast as I contemplated the future tried to form a plan for dinner.

Main dish, main dish, main dish? Ohhhh, howabout tempeh? Mmm, yeah! Ok, now what?

Enter the new BBQ sauce I found at Tuesday Morning (similar to TJ Maxx)

Most of the time, my last-minute plans and “aha!” type ideas form a pretty good tasting meal. This time…not saa much! Ok, so the squash needs a little something more than S&P (smoked paprika perhaps), I should have marinated the tempeh, and this was the


Holy chili peppers!

Eh, well, at least it looked pretty!

I blame this on writer’s chef’s cramp. And too much stress. And not enough sleep. And oh, the fact that it’s the day after Wednesday that nobody likes because it’s still.not.Friday!

“See” you guys tomorrow (when it actually IS Friday)!

What’s the oddest thing you’ve paired nut butter with?
