So, as I was trying to figure out why the scale is climbing, I consulted the calendar. Ahhh.....TOM is a week away. Now that that mystery is solved, let's move on to breakfast.

Fage with sugar free strawberry preserves, 1/2 cup Fiber One, and strawberries.

I took the kids to school and then went to cooking class at Great News! I haven't been in like a month! Shame! Today's class was "Meat and Mashed Potatoes".

First up was Smokey Marinated Flank Steak on BLT Smashed Red Potaotes. The BLT was bacon, leeks and tomatoes. Super yummy potatoes!!!!!

Next was Seared Scallops with Bacon and Whole Grain Mustard on Creme Fraiche Mashed Potatoes. The potatoes may be the best mashed potatoes I've ever had....nothing healthy about them....just pure goodness. Now for the scallops....they were ok....but I'm not a scallop person. I find that they taste like "weak shrimp."

That brings us to the Root Beer Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Do you see the caramelized onions on top? I loved the root beer glaze (and I HATE root beer) and the onions together!

Then came dessert: Apple Pecan Cheesecake with a Cinnamon Graham Cracker Crust. OMG....too die for. I think I will make this for Thanksgiving!!!!!

So now it's dinner time and I'm not hungry (I wonder why!?!). Hubby is working so I don't have to cook anything. Trying to decide if I should just skip dinner altogether. I know if I skip it I'll be lying in bed at 9PM hungry so maybe I'll just have soup. Oh...decisions....decisions!!!


  1. oh the dreaded TOM! :( It always makes my weight climb, too! That dessert looks FANtastic!

  2. Yum, Great News! Are you going to that demonstration, or whatever, that they are doing on November 21? I think I might check it out...that store is a "danger zone" for me because I want to buy everything but I'm on a tight budget so I have to pick and choose!

  3. omg please post that cheesecake recipe when you make it! i'd also LOVE to try it out for thanksgiving!

  4. I seriously want to go to that cooking class! Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things :) Have a great day!

  5. So glad that you enjoyed the class! The cheesecake WAS super yummy!
