Good morning Sunshine,
Well I had quite a busy Friday! I woke up and I was tired, lazy and hungry! I didn’t know what to have for breakfast so I asked on Facebook and majority said to have pancakes. Now you know I love pancakes, but I was just to lazy to make them. I thought maybe I’ll just have yogurt, but then I didn’t feel like that either. I wanted something light and fruity that wouldn’t take to long to make. Do you have days like that, where you just don’t know what to make or eat? I dug through the fridge and I an idea popped in my head. I gathered my goodies and came up with this.
What is that you’re wondering? I don’t even know how to describe it! It’s a cross between a crape and a quesadilla. It was everything I wanted. Creamy, cheesy, light, warm and chock full of fresh berries. Not to mention it took like 3 minutes to make. This would actually make a wonderful dessert, topped with vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Oh boy, I’m thinking of doing that now.
What I did is I took a Flatout Bread and stuffed it with creamy goat cheese, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Folded it like a quesadilla and cooked it in my skillet until it turned lightly brown. I would have used cream cheese, but I didn’t have any, but I did have a goat cheese cream cheese and it worked out just as good. Have you ever had Flatout Bread? There perfect for dishes like this and for making pizza. Since it was so nice out I decided to eat breakfast outside. I love how the sun is shining on my breakfast.
I topped it with Maple Syrup which was the perfect amount of sweetness that it needed. This is a fantastic breakfast. Healthy, low calorie and so full of flavor. This is a breakfast that I could make at work using my Panini Press, which I plan on doing next week.
I plan on making my creation again and trying it with different kinds of stuffing. I got a lot of ideas in my head on this one, so you Guys better get some Flatout Breads or start making crapes, because what I create next is going to be good!!!! I can taste it already!
Speaking of crapes, have you ever had one? I had one once, in Las Vegas. My Husband and I were walking around Caesars Palace and we came across a chocolate restaurant, Max Brenners; and my eyes lite up like a kid on Christmas. Chocolate everywhere! They had chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate syringes to shoot chocolate into your mouth and chocolate crapes. We couldn’t walk by and not get any chocolate, so we ordered our first crape, which was Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Holy amazing! It was one of the best things I ever eaten. We had chocolate all over our hands and face, it was wonderful. It was so rich, a little to sweet, but so darn good. When we go back to Vegas, I know we will be hitting up that restaurant again!
After breakfast I had more energy and was feeling better so I decided to treat myself to a Pedicure. That was such a nice treat! I’ll tell you, you couldn’t pay me enough to give pedicures to people. Eww, think of all the feet they must touch in a day! After my pedicure I was so relaxed that I needed a Starbucks to wake me up! I love my Starbucks! I swear I can’t go a day without it!! Than I went shoe shopping and bought these!
I love DSW! They have the best shoes and prices. They had a great selection of sandals but the heels were to high. Since I’m 5’11, it’s hard to find a low heel shoe that’s pretty. I can’t wear flats, because they bother my feet. I also bought some Niki walking sneakers to help encourage me to get out and walk and that’s exactly what I did. By the way the sandals look worn because I wore them right after I bought them. There so comfortable!
I decided to do some clothes shopping to, which was a huge mistake. I realized I put on a little too much weight and I was up in the next clothing size. I refused to buy a bigger size! Nothing worse than clothes shopping and nothing fits. I told myself a few months ago I had to drop 5 lbs in order to buy Spring clothes and I really tried but nothing is happening for me. I’ll keep trying!! I wish someone could just tell me what I am doing wrong. Am I eating too much, am I eating to little? Am I not exercising enough? I have no clue what the answer is. If you know I would love your help!
After dinner I decided to try out my new sneakers and I took Samantha (my dog) for a 3 mile walk. I would have jogged, but it was still 84 degrees out and I was so full from dinner I swear you could have rolled me down the street. On our walk, a truck drove by with a lady holding a dog, well I think it was a dog in her lap. It had the face of a pug, but the hair of Einstein. The thing looked just like an Ewok! Remember them from Star Wars? This thing was ugly! Black face and gray, fly away hair. I swear the dog had more hair on its head than I did!

Well my friends, I have been writing and re-writing for a couple of hours now and its way past my bed time. So it’s time for me to hit the sackaroo! I need to get a good nights sleep since I plan on getting up early and heading to the Farmers Market. I need to get there early so I can get the best pick of fruit and flowers!
Have a super fabulous, wonderful, grand old Saturday!!
