Mmmm cream puffs

What a great Wednesday! Ever since I went to yoga last night with my friend Laurie, I have been in such a good mood. I feel like my life is more balanced this week than last week and maybe that is contributing to my good mood too.

I decided to switch things up for breakfast and had a poached egg with provolone cheese and Frank's Red Hot on whole wheat bread.

Lunch was a small taco, pineapple Chobani yogurt, and a pink lady apple.

After work, I met my friend Angie at the gym for some weights, cardio on the Cybex Arc Trainer, and abs. It was fun to catch up with her and have a buddy to workout with.

On my way back from the gym, all I could think about was making quinoa with Mmmm sauce. I've been wanting to make Mmmm sauce for a while now and when I tried to load the recipe online over the weekend, it wasn't working! So, I finally made it tonight and now I know how it got it's name!

I added chickpeas and tomatoes to the quinoa. The sauce reminded me of the flavors I love in Indian food!

I did sit there and say "mmmmm" while eating this dinner. I made Craig try some too and he thought it was pretty good.

My mom won six Wisconsin State Fair cream puffs and picked them up today, so we got three of them to enjoy.

I had one and indulged a bit.

I just heard on the news that they will have the world's largest cream puff at the Wisconsin State Fair this year! Crazy. :)

I guess I had a sweet tooth tonight (even though I didn't have any major cravings for sweets), because I also had a few bites of this addictive ice cream.

Time to read some blogs, a book on my kindle, and then get some zzzz's.


  1. Ok, how did the cream puff become THE state fair food of Wisconsin? Just curious, being from Iowa, originally, I have no idea about this kind of thing.

  2. Good question-I don't know either. I really am not much of a fair goer myself and never have been. I like the animals, but that's about it.
