Enjoyable eats and a pretty pan!

by Jenn (eating bender) on May 20, 2008

This day was busy indeed! A full day of classes, a full day of work, and a fully enjoyable nighttime workout made it fly by! Now, onto the food :)


I had a craving for cheese quesadillas for lunch today. I used two La Tortilla Factory Garlic & Herb wraps with about 1/4 cup fat-free Mexican cheese melted between them. I broiled the quesadilla in the toaster oven for about 5 minutes, and lunch was served! I topped it with some Tostitos mild salsamuy bien!

I cut the quesadilla up as small as possible to get the most “volume” out it!

On the side I had a big bowl of spinach drizzled in Annie’s Goddess dressing. I can’t get enough of this dressing – I’m so glad I finally tried it!

A more artistic perspective… šŸ˜‰


I got back from my classes in definite need of a snack, so I went with some Trader Joe’s High Fiber Cereal mixed with some Nature’s Path Rice Puffs and heated up with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

I did some work and then went out to dinner with the roomie to our usual, Panera. I got the French onion soup, Greek salad with chicken, and a whole grain baguette. Shocking, I know – but delicious of course!

The French onion soup, minus the cheese and the croutons:

And the Greek salad with chicken, tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives, pepperoncini and feta!

After dinner I headed to the gym for a refreshing workout – 45 minutes on the elliptical, plus an arm machine workout. I definitely like the morning workouts better, but sometimes it’s nice to just expend all the energy and stress that has built up throughout the day with an evening sweat session šŸ˜‰


I’d like to say a big THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! to my Aunt Diane for giving me such a wonderful birthday present! I saw it here on the Williams-Sonoma website and thought I could probably find many uses for it!

It’s called an Ebleskiver pan, and is mainly used for making delicious-looking eats such as these:

They’re pancakes, but they sort of remind me of dumplings! They look scrumptious!! But I thought there could probably be several other uses for it – Cheese Danish pancakes and poached eggs are some of the ideas I’ve come up with so far. I can’t WAIT to use it – THANKS AGAIN AUNT DIANE!!

Does anyone else have an idea for something that could be made with this pretty pan?

I’ve got a bit more work to do before I crawl into bed!

Sweet dreams :)

Kristie ~ I definitely could eat it everyday too!

Cassie ~ Yes, but I think I’ve found a way where I can eat an entire pan’s worth (7 little balls) that is reasonable – works for me!!

Romina ~
You must get one – it is AMAZING!!

VeggieGirl ~ I will definitely be thanking her again šŸ˜‰

Tina ~ I know, that’s the thing about food blogs – they make me hungry!!

Traci ~ Oops – I just realized I always mean to write REDUCED fat. Sorry about that! But if you’re still wondering, I use Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Cheese – it’s really good!

Em ~
Can’t wait to show ya :)
