Gosh, I’m so happy the weekend is here! School is finally over, which means I’m celebrating! I started the festivities early last night by watching Back to the Future under the stars in Dupont Circle with Zach, Jared, Chis, Elaina and Alec.
We sipped sparkling wine with sippy straws and sang along to the movie’s theme song, “Power of Love.”
It was a fun evening! Some of the best movies ever made were made in the 80’s, don’t ya think? Ferris Buehler’s Day Off. E.T. When Harry Met Sally. The Princess Bride. Pretty in Pink. Back to the Future. Classics.
On a completely unrelated note…
Do you ever feel like the inside of your car is a spot on representation of the current state of your life?
When my life feels as though it’s gone a bit out of control—-as it has over the past five months—-the inside of my car goes bananas. Legit, frightening. I don’t know how it happens, but my car will be clean one day, then an explosion occurs by the next day.
That’s what’s happening right now. I’m not sure where all those coffee cups came from. And pieces of tupperware. WHERE DID YOU COME FROM!?
I must be going bananas too. 😉
You know what else is out of control? My egg white puff consumption.
As I mentioned in my last post, my cravings have been exponentially stronger than usual. School stress has been a beautifully convenient excuse, but now that I’m finished with classes and my indulgences are no longer justified. 😉
So what does this mean? It means that I’m officially going froyo-less for a week. Please pray for me!
Time to stop thinking about froyo; let’s chat about puffy egg whites instead!
I’ve been eating them every day. Twice a day. They’re usually an integral part of my breakfast….
…as well as my afternoon snack.
I can’t get enough of these little guys! They’re protein-packed, delicious and, unlike life, uncomplicated. 😉
EGG WHITE PROTEIN PUFFS
4 egg whites (or 1/2 cup liquid egg whites)
Optional mix ins:
2 T. peanut flour (peanut butter)
1-2 T. grated Parmesan (cheesy)
1/4 cup pumpkin + 1 t. cinnamon (pumpkin pie)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees; spray baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer for about 4 minutes until stiff peaks form.
3. Bake for about 3-5 minutes, or until slightly brown.
Drizzle with peanut flour “frosting” (2 T. peanut flour mixed with water and a dash of sweetener) or whatever your heart desires.
Have a wonderful weekend! Love you all to the moon and back. <3
What’s your favorite way to treat yourself after achieving a big accomplishment?
Ice cream, champagne or a bubble bath for me. (Or all three…at the same time. Muaha).
Favorite movies from the 1980’s?
There are so many!
Any current “addictions” you’d like to confess? I promise I won’t judge. 😉
I have a TruWhip addiction that I’m trying to break.
