Different Ways to burn 200 Calories

on March 10, 2012

Morning!  🙂    Man oh man was it nice to sleep in this morning and not have anywhere to be.  The only thing that is pressing today is a wedding of a friend at 2:00.  I have literally watched this girl grow up, so to see her getting married is a special thing. 

Since I didn’t have anything pressing to do this morning, I thought that I would catch up on the blogging world and cuddle with my little man


So I watched the new Footloose last night and the jury is still out as to whether I liked it.  If you have seen the first movie you may not like this one.  It’s pretty much word for word, with modern dancing in it.  I may try to watch it again and try to separate the two…..  we’ll see. 


I couldn’t wait to share some new eats with you this morning!  Angey has a friend that runs a Gluten-Free Bakery and she brought me some bread the other day!  I hope to visit this bakery real soon.  🙂


The bread is pretty big, so I only toasted one slice and it was plenty filling. 


I am so glad the sun is out this morning!  We were expecting some really bad weather for like 5 days in a row (there is still some rain coming), but today is absolutely beautiful!  This is what it looked like the other day:


I also had some Green tea


I made some of the best chocolate mousse last night!  I found this recipe on Julie’s blog, Peanut Butter Fingers and it is divine!


  • 1 avocado
  • 3 1/2 tbsp of cocoa
  • 3 1/2 tbsp of honey

And that is it!  You peel, and pit the avocado, and add all ingredients to a food processor and mix it all up.  It is so thick and creamy!  I really wanted to try to incorporate avocado’s to my diet, but I really don’t like them.  It’s a texture thing.  Anyway, when I saw this recipe I couldn’t wait to try it!  Verdict??

    I have heard about making chocolate pudding with avocado..I might try that. I wanted to make Angela from oh she glows pasta made with avocado for the sauce…so maybe I will try to make both and just get a few avocados on the next grocery shop 😛
