Over the Past Couple of Weeks....

Yeah, okay, I may have been a little MIA lately. Okay, fine, I have been MIA. To catch up, I decided to do a  roll-out of my recent cooking results. 

 I feel I am required to pass along this recipe. I know I really really like oatmeal, but this is one that is just very delicious-disregarding my own personal oatmeal bias. This is so, so good AND filling!    

Maple & Pumpkin Ginger Oatmeal  

 1/2 Cup oatmeal (I use old-fashioned)
4 Tbs Pumpkin Puree
3 Tbs lowfat Cottage Cheese
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 pkg Splenda
Cinnamon, pinch of Ginger, and pinch of Allspice
1 cup Water
2 Tbs sugar-free Maple Syrup

1) Mix all ingredients, except maple syrup, together until well combined.
2) Bake on 350 for about 20-25 minutes
3) Top with Maple syrup. 100% Yum!

About 240 calories, 10g protein, & 6g fiber! 
Awesome. I seriously recommend. 
Next Up:
This one was kind of an accident. Meant to grab the Basil...instead grabbed the Cilantro. Eh, just a detour to my yumminess. I really like this and it was! Totally cheated with the Steamer bag of the broccoli mac'n cheese.

Is just me or does the steamer bags never taste quite right?
Lime-Cilantro Cod with Side Salad & Broccoli Mac 'n Cheese 

Chicken Biscuit Pot Pie
This is a dish in my normal dinner rotation. It can be made ahead, is tasty, filling, and most importantly, has NO pie crust!!!

And finally...

Holy, Moly...My New Sweet Euphoria
Yep. I have a new obsession. FROZEN YOGURT! I love it!!!
I have had 3 different chains' fro-yo:
1) Sweet CeCe's
2) Swirl's
3) Orangeleaf
Orangeleaf is definitely my favorite.
However, no OrangeLeaf Frozen Yogurt. 
I shouldn't really complain - both places are still delcious!!! 
I bug Aaron (hubby) like a 5 yr old every time we are near a fro-yo place.
"Hey, don't forget...", 
"When we gonna go?" 
"I want some frozen yogurt sooooo bad."
It's pretty pathetic.
