Taste Of Home Southwest Vegetarian Bake

This the second recipe I have made from my new cook book “Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet”.  This is an INCREDIBLE recipe!  From the crunch of the red onion to the slightly smoky taste, to the cheese.  Man oh man.  It’s a second new Go-To recipe.  It was so simple and easy to make.  You can find the recipe by clicking on the blue text above.

For dessert I made Hungry Girl’s Chocolate Chip Softies. These were good!  They reminded me of a healthy breakfast cookie/muffin. They aren’t like life changing or any thing but are very good for a girl who has a raving sweet tooth!

Sunday

Since Jeremy is on vacation this week I took advantage of it and I got myself up at 5am and went for a 5 mile run in the dark.  It was marvelous and slightly cold!  I got chased by some armadillo, chased away about 5 bunnies and I admired the cobalt blue sky as the sun was beginning to rise. The moon was an incredible shade of pink/orange.  I do love me some early morning runs!  I see things I never would otherwise.

Running = Cheaper Than Therapy

Went went to the early service at church and then went to eat breakfast at our favorite, Sweet Tomatoes

Breakfast focaccia bread, some sort of Mexican egg thing that I wasn’t crazy about and potatoes O’Brien.  SO YUM!

Donut Muffin, waffle, French toast, baked cinnamon apples, cinnamon roll, and a blueberry muffin.  I also had some vanilla nut flavored coffee that was delicious!

As usual, I was full but unsatisfied because the food is SO delicious and I just wish I could have a to-go box for later.  Thumbs down I think I just need to go eat there more often.

After lunch we went looking for a pair of running shoes for Jeremy.  This was his Father’s Day gift.  After 5 stores over the last week and one last one today….we finally found some at Sports Authority.  We are a picky bunch aren’t we?

After a little cat nap it was time to make some cookies for Daddy!

Gina’s Skinnytaste Low Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is to-die-for.  They come out crispy, chewy, and super delicious! My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Today I doubled the batch so I could take some to Jeremy’s dad tomorrow.

Speaking of…..we are driving to Abilene in the morning to meet up with Jeremy’s parents.  The boys are spending the week with them in Lubbock!  Jer and I will be sans kids for 5 1/2 days!!!!  HOLLA!  We don’t have a whole lot planned but just being able to speak complete sentences to each other will be glorious enough!
