Snowy Eats ~ February 10th

Well, the blizzard wasn't *quite* as bad as they were making it out to be. But still, we got a lot of snow here in NY and it's not done yet! My head cold is almost gone now, but I didn't feel well last night and I went to bed really early. So that meant that I got up super early this morning (around 5 a.m.) and watched the storm develop out my window. lol At daylight this was what I saw out my window.


For breakfast I decided to make stuffed french toast... This time I used peanut butter instead of the cream cheese concoction (see here).

I used 2 pieces of Trader Joe's french toast and Skippy Natural crunchy peanut butter for something different. Then I topped it with Trader Joe's maple syrup. (I only wish I had berries, but I was out!) I also wish that I was able to finish a breakfast like this early in the morning, but alas...


For lunch I made an egg mcmuffin with a sandwich size english muffin, egg whites, and american cheese. I had some baked ruffles alongside.

For my snacks today I had...

An oatmeal raisin walnut Clif Bar (I can't figure out why the lighting is a little weird in this photo, but oh well).

And I nibbled a bit on this AMAZING chocolate bar I found at Whole Foods!

Divine's milk chocolate bar with hazelnuts! :)


For dinner I had mini wagon wheel pasta with veggies in a sauce of olive oil, sherry, and a little garlic, with parmesan cheese on top.


For my snack tonight I had a pineapple Chobani yogurt (I had forgotten how awesome this flavor is!) and a small bowl of Cheerios (I eat them dry, without milk just like you would popcorn or chips!).

Peanut was fascinated by the snow and looked out the window at it some. But he went about his day as usual...



In this last pic doesn't Peanut look like my peanut butter stuffed french toast?! :)

So far the new phone is working out great and it's surprisingly easy to use! Thanks for all the comments on the last post (and remember to check back, because I do try to answer your questions in the comments!).

Goodness gracious! Peanut looks so adorable, especially in that last picture! If the airports weren't so terrible with the snow and whatnot I'd fly over to give him a squeeze. ;)
Your eats all look delish, especially the stuffed french toast. Is it like a pb sandwich, but with french toast as bread?

Rachael ~ Aww... believe me I pester him enough! He's so frigging cute I can't keep my hands off him! lol

Yeah basically that's all the stuffed french toast is... you just sandwich whatever you like between two pieces of french toast!

It's really sunny and clear skies over here today. We were supposed to be getting snow, but there's no sign of it thankfully.

Yes, this phone definitely takes clearer pictures! So it's true that things worked out in the end for the better!

Stuffed french toast sounds amazing- especially with PB! My kitties drink from the sink, too :)

I know this is like straight hair people wanting curly hair and vice versa...but oh how I wish for a snow day! Looks like some great eats.

i am so jealous of everyones snow!!
peanut is such a cutie. glad to hear the phone is growing on you ;)

Healthy. Happy. Well. said...

I'm not sure If you watch Nip/Tuck but Chobani is all over that show! Product Placement! Everyone's always eating it! I have yet to try it... I'm slowly trying to incorporate dairy back into my life...It's all over the blog world so it must be something special!

Marina said...

^^I don't watch that show, but that's funny that they're always eating Chobani! The pineapple flavor is really the only one I like. I think Wallaby's yogurts are much better in general though. :)

Katie said...

Those chocoolate bars always tempt me... the wrappers are so pretty! And chocolate+hazelnut is my favorite flavor ever.

Have a great weekend, Marina!

I;m glad you're doing well and that your phone is working out for you girlie!! That stuffed French toast sounds sooo good. My dad is going to end up staying in town for a couple more days so I think I may try this recipe if he's in the mood for it... but who wouldn't be?!?! The wagon wheels are so cute but not as cute as peanut. I've also been enjoying milk chocolate :D
