Hey hey folks – how ya’ doin’?
Today is a weird day weather-wise. My Mom and I set out for our walk at the normal time, but it was pitch black out. Kind of unnerving and kind of strange for August, isn’t it? At any rate, it was a good walk and I’m revved up for the day 🙂
For breakfast this morning I made a Duo of Cottage Cheese.
I picked up some beautiful, juicy, ripe peaches at the store this weekend and Ben’s Mom gave me some tomatoes grown in her friend’s garden. Gosh, the friends of my Mother and Mother-in-law are really pulling through this summer!
When Ben and I were at his parents house this weekend, we were talking about how we like to eat tomatoes. Ben’s Mom mentioned that she liked to eat them cut up with cottage cheese, so I decided to give it a whirl!
This combo did not disappoint! It would also be really, really good on a big hunk of toasted baguette…mmmmm…
And I had always eaten my cottage cheese with pineapple chunks growing up, but a peach was a delicious switcheroo!
If you live in Iowa then you know the pure bliss that is cold, creamy and thick AE Dairy Cottage Cheese. This stuff is like ice cream.
This was a super quick meal as I dished out my cottage cheese and chopped up my fruit last night. This morning, I combined the two and presto – breakfast! Yet another example of quick and easy things you can do to save time in the morning!
Today I added sliced, toasted almonds. UGH I want this NOW!
Can I just reiterate how EASY it is to make couscous?
- Boil water in a pan
- Add an equal part of couscous to the pan and put a lid on it
- Take the pan off the burner until you’re ready to eat
- Fluff with a fork and EAT!
This is easier to make than pasta, my friends. No straining involved – it’s the stuff, really.
I also packed another fab duo of Almond Butter & Carrot Chips.
Carrot Chips are nature’s perfect almond butter dipper and scraper, if you ask me 😉
Well it’s supposed to be hotter than it was yesterday so I’m packing my bag to hit the gym after work. Think happy, motivational thoughts for me!!
What’s your favorite cottage cheese mix-in? Do you even like cottage cheese?
I could eat tub after tub of it, but I’ll only eat the AE Dairy variety. Since it doesn’t go on sale that often – and I’m a stickler for deals at the grocery store – I don’t get to enjoy it as much as I would like!
