Kitchen Calamity

Saturday morning wake up call? 6am. Why? Class at 8am. I signed up for a Nutrition class that is only offered at this time and this day. It’s a mini term so luckily there areย  only 9 classes. First day wasn’t so eventful, just the usual talk about the syllabus lasting an hour and then basic nutrition concepts. Let me remind you this isn’t the usual one hour class. Because it’s only once a week this class is 3 hours long!! Gasp! Yesss ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I don’t know how I’m going to be able to sit through this. I love nutrition but any class for 3 hours is bound to leave me day dreaming.

For breakfast I made some overnight oats the day before and they were delicious!!!

Oats, Fage, chocolate silk milk, whipped banana, topped with Kashi, blueberries, chocolate morsels, shortbread cookies, and cinnamon raisin PB. The overnight oats are really growing on me. I need to buy some chia seeds asap to fluff them up. Apparently they make a big difference in texture by soaking up a lot of the liquid.

Oats are always win anyway you make them ๐Ÿ™‚

After class I was uber excited to finally see my boyfriend! He had to work for my birthday so I wasn’t able to see him ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

My birthday gift was more than perfect. He gave me 5 healthy cooking books!! Haha we’re such nerds ๐Ÿ™‚ For Valentines Day I gave him an ice cream recipe book andย  scooper for his new ice cream machine. We are totally made for each other ๐Ÿ˜›

Our lunch was equally fantastic

Quinoa with chicken, broccoli, and Ragu sauce.

Ok so if you were wondering about my blog title, this is what happened.

I was chopping up a green pepper and somehow the knife seemed to slip out from under me and cut my finger above my nail bed ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Did it hurt? Yes

Did I cry? Yes

Did it bleed? Like crazy!!!

lol no band-aids were available so my bf improvised. It was a long time before it finally stopped bleeding ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I mean seriously out of all days, today…My birthday celebration. How sexy of me going out to a club with a gauze on my finger ๐Ÿ˜‰

Luckily all it takes to cheer me up is some ice cream ๐Ÿ˜›

Strawberry Froyo in our ice cream maker with some 100 calorie pack oreos and whipped cream! Yummy. Now I feel a little better ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a fantastic Valentines weekend! Our weather just got wet and cold so no sunny days here. Booo

    Aww you and your boyfriend are so cute! Two foodies ๐Ÿ™‚
    Sorry about your finger, I actually cut mine on a strawberry preserves jar yesterday. There was a sharp piece of glass around the rim of my Polaner preserves jar and it got me! Have a wonderful valentine’s day!

      Thank you, you too ๐Ÿ˜€

    We’re stuck with the snowy cold weather, too. I’m soooo ready for spring and summer! thank goodness they are right around the corner!

    Overnight oats are the bomb. Lately though I’ve been too cold in the morning to eat them so I’ve been sticking with my warm oats. Usually I live off overnight oats during the summer! Chia seeds really do make a great difference…I always add at least 1 tsp and they come out perfect.

      I found some at a great price at Amazon, so pricey at whole foods!

    What do you use to make your froyo? I’ve tried and tried and mine always turns hard in the ice cream maker!

    • 6. Jenny  |  02/12/2011 at 5:23 pm

      I use Fage Greek yogurt. Regular yogurt has more water so it’ll solidify more in the ice cream maker. I made it with 17 ounces of Fage, 1/2 cup of fat free milk, and 3/4 cup of splenda. Then just chopped in some strawberries and threw them in there ๐Ÿ™‚

    100 calorie pack oreos exist?! ๐Ÿ™‚ I need to find these!

    • 8. Jenny  |  02/12/2011 at 6:07 pm

      well ok to be honest they are not “real” oreos lol it’s like a thin chocolate wafer but still tasty ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 9. BrittFit  |  02/12/2011 at 6:05 pm

    Ugh long classes are the worst. I bet the yummy breakfast got you through though ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Aww, love the foodie celebration! So sorry about your finger! Story of my life in my kitchen! I am so accident prone!

    Good luck in the nutrition class! When I was in college, I had to take an accelerated physics class…at night…for FOUR hours twice a week! I thought I was going to die!! I’m still not really sure how I survived with my brain intact!

    • 11. Jenny  |  02/12/2011 at 8:52 pm

      Physics for 4 hours?! Wow now you are one serious bad ass

    Knife slips happen to everyone, don’t worry… I got a new knife today, and I was just -washing- it when I sliced the tip of my finger off!
