Well, we didn’t get our car back tonight. I guess one part didn’t fit right, but it should be ready tomorrow! I’m really ready to have the car back – we’ve been squeezing into our little truck for the past few weeks, and I’m running out of foot room with all the bags I take to work every day.

My lunch held me over pretty well, but I did get hungry enough for my green smoothie around 4 this afternoon.

Super green to the rescue!


This one was

  • 1 cup Almond Breeze
  • 2 -3 cups spinach
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 Tbsp peanut butter

This was the perfect amount to get me through until dinner.

We came home and finished thawing the buffalo while prepping the rest of dinner. I was hoping it would stay nice long enough for us to grill out (Nick’s favorite thing to do) and it turned out to be the perfect weather. So nice that we sat outside to eat.


Nick grilled us up some buffalo burgers while I made the sides.


I cooked up some fresh corn on the cob we got today, and made some of those zucchini crisps that Nick likes so much. He requested them tonight!



Nick requested this instead of a cake after we saw it on Food Network a while back.


I even had to go buy a springform pan just to make this since I didn’t have one.



The Un-Springing…

Are you ready?



I made Giada’s Chocolate Honey Almond Tart, and it is the most decadent and one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made!


It is not low fat, low sugar, or low anything.


I cut no corners, made no modifications.


And every single bite was amazing.

What a way to end a birthday – Nick had 2 slices! I did cut ours into 12 slices, and you could cut it even smaller. It’s pretty rich, and I have no clue how Giada figures you only get 6-8 servings out of this! I would definitely recommend the recipe, though. It was simple to make and amazing to eat.

I’ve got to finish some laundry and prep my lunch and maybe breakfast for tomorrow.

What’s your favorite thing to make in a springform pan? Now I need more ideas  🙂
