This is going to be a quick post because I need to get ready for my friend Lisa’s birthday party tonight. She rented a couple of hotel rooms at a luxurious hotel nearby. We are going to hang by the pool, go out to dinner and dance the night away (if I can stay up that late).

I was craving cereal this morning so I had a bowl of Special K Cinnamon Pecan cereal with almond milk. I also had an orange:

I went to spin class and tried to give it my all because I know tonight will be a calorie disaster.

Lunchtime rolled around and I whipped up a giant salad:

In this baby was mixed greens, broccoli slaw, red bell pepper, cucumber, red onions, tomatoes, leftover couscous and the best dressing ever.  Thank you Gina for introducing me to hummus and balsamic vinegar mixed together as a dressing. I am sold!

Ok folks, I gotta run. Tomorrow’s is my daughter's birthday party so there’s a good change I won’t get a chance to post tomorrow.

I will leave you with this:

Toffee (Crack) Brownie Photos 002

These are my most requested treats: Toffee Brownies. I like to refer to them as “Crack Brownies” because they are that addictive.  You too can become addicted! Just hop on over to Steph’s blog….she’s having an online bake sale to raise money for her goal for Team Training. She is running the San Diego marathon (I have an announcement related to this coming soon!).  I’m making these babies for the lucky bidder. And don’t worry….I’ll be posting the recipe soon.

Do you like your brownies plain or with added goodies?


  1. I like brownies any way! Have a fun time tonight.

  2. Mmmmm I miss taking cycling classes!
    I like my brownies with bits of stuff added in! So much better! :)
    Have fun tonight!


  3. Whoa, your friend celebrates her special day in style!! Rock the night, girl!

    I don't like brownies very much, I'm not a fan of chocolate flavored stuff. I like blondies though, and I love it esp when they've got nuts!

  4. PS: I'm such a zombie lately - I finally added you to my blog-roll love! <3 xoxo

  5. I hope you guys had a great time! Your salad looks amazing and I am definitely going to have to try that dressing mixture!

  6. HOpe you had fun at the birthday party! I prefer plain brownies - they just have so much flavor alone!

  7. I just like brownies!

  8. We got some brownie lovers in the house!! :)

  9. I always have to bulk things up with add-ins! I'm especially big on texture — Got to have some crunch!
