Daily Eats ~ June 12th

I got today's breakfast idea from a restaurant I used to go to here in the city called Penelope. They're a super popular brunch spot and I used to live right around the corner from them. Anyways, one of their popular brunch items is "Nutella French Toast" so I figured I'd give it a try at home!

I took 2 slices of Trader Joe's French Toast and spread a thin layer of Nutella on one of them, then made a sandwich out of it and drizzled a bit of Trader Joe's Maple Syrup on top. I sliced a few strawberries to have alongside. Yum! I also had an Apple & Eve apple juice box with it.

Peanut on Mom's magazine this morning.

I had a Whole Wheat Fusilli Pasta Salad that I got from the Westside Market the other day. I just heated it up in the microwave.

I had a Clif Mojo Dipped Fruit & Nut Bar. I also had a string cheese later (not pictured).

I had Amy's Asian Noodle Stir-Fry with an orange.
(sorry the pic came out blurry for some reason)

Peanut made this cute little face when he smelled my orange. "What's that horrible smell, Mummy?!"

I sort of made a mini cake dessert with a chocolate VitaTop, spread with (more!) Nutella, topped with Cool Whip, and my last 2 strawberries! (Which reminds me, I'll need to make a run to Whole Foods tomorrow!)

I'm excited because VeggieGirl has invited me to a blog dinner here in NYC at the end of the month. I'm looking forward to meeting her and other bloggers! And I also look forward to all the friends I'll be making through my blog in the near future!! xoxo
