Long time, no see. You have probably been wondering where have Court & Whit gone? Well, to answer your question we have been…here…and
here… making these magazines for US History. This project was torture :( These week has been out of CONTROL… So much HW! Everynight has been HW,HW,HW.. and more HW. Time is dwindling down and now it is Crunch Time. So pretty much a lot of Crazy things have been happening this week.
Wednesday~ Late Day “B” Day
Well let’s just say for being a “B” day, Wed flew by in the blink of an eye.
Breakfast=Pumpkin Pancake Trio
Toppings were per usual: 1) PB and Pumpkin butter, Greek yogurt&granola, sugar-free syrup
Mid-morning snack: Cookies ‘n Cream Luna
Lunch: Veggie salad, Clem, and 100 cal kettle popcorn
Also mixed in, was some leftover Garlic Pork Tenderloin
Breakfast for Dinner is the best, so Dinner= Egg white spinach scramble, half of a juicy grapefruit, and some Apple cinnamon toast.
Breakfast= Pumpkiny oats, with a Deep Chocolate Vita and new “Naturally More” PB. Also a green tea latte
This morning, and all week has been on and off PURE RAIN! You would think we we’re on the East Coast, but nope it is Just Colorado for you. Warm meals have been cozy though.
**Naturally More PB Review: naturally more is lower in calories 169 vs. 190 for 2 tbs, naturally good for you-Flax, egg whites, etc. It was easy spread-Liqudy just the way I like :)
Very Yummy, and we loved the texture ;)
Purchase yours here.
After seeing this fabulous creation on Kath’s blog, Courtney and I recreated it for lunch using Progreso Tomato Bisque Soup, 1 Egg, and half of a Naan Flatbread w/ Laughing cow spread on top. This was awesome, I don’t know why we have never tried this before, but eggs are yummy mixed in tomato soup!
And some Pepper was used to spice up the top.
MMM, Flatbread :)
It was our early day today, so after lunch we decided to go grocery shopping for our mom. When we left, it was sunny & bright. As Whit & I were walking around Safeway casually, we looked outside and the whole sky was SUPER DARK! We were thinking WTF happened to the Weather? Then we heard the sirens (tornado sirens). We hurried up, checked out, then rushed into the pouring rain to get to our car. The whole parking lot was flooded, so our pants were soaked up to our knees, and the basket was sliding everywhere! When we got in the car, everyone was calling us frantically to get home, and sure enough we got home safely. Colorado weather never gets boring. lol
When we got home, a yogurt mess was sounding pretty ideal, so we whipped one up using:
Plain greek yogurt
Naturally more PB
While out grocery shopping, we got some of Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels with our handy dandy VIP coupon to review.

Also, picked up to try was Mocha Fudge SO Delicious Ice-cream!
**Verdict: So creamy and decadent with big pillows of fudge in every bite. It kinda tasted like Starbucks Java Chip IC, but with less cals. We could not believe it was dairy-free! If you like SB Ice-cream, then we recommend this flavor to you.
Purchase and learn about the company here.
This was seriously a night of new products, and A LOT of Reviews. So with that said, to go on top of our Ice-cream was Tru whip.
Chemicals aren’t cool. So in 2007, when we looked at the whipped topping category and realized there were no natural alternatives, we decided to create one. Ta-daaa! truwhip was born.
At Peak Foods, we are committed to safety, quality and environmental sustainability, as well as health and taste. That’s why truwhip has no chemicals, trans fats, hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup. Even better, no bad karma.
We did it for all you folks out there who grew up eating tempting desserts and fluffy fruit salads made with old-style whipped topping. At long last, the flavors you love, without the unhealthy stuff you don’t! So bring on the Pineapple Fluff, Strawberry Yogurt Pie and Banana Pudding Parfait!

This morning, it was raining again! Surprise, surprise. lol While walking down the ceral aisle in Safeway yesterday Court and I spotted something that caught our eye, Abundance Oatmeal. There are so many cool flavors,so we got Apple Cinnamon, and Maple Streusual.

Pink lady (heated w/ agave cinnamon)
Naturally More PB

Chocolate Mint Latte:
1/2 cup of skim milk
1 tbs of sugar- free fat- free Vanilla coffee creamer
1 pkt of stevia
half a pkt of Fat-free Hot cocco (25 cals pkts)
A drop or two of Mint extract
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup hazelnut coffee
And for some extra creaminess, a dallop of Truwhip! :)
For a snack during third period today, we tried another flavor of the Raw Crunch bars. CHOCOLATE!
**Verdict: Still loving the satisfaction these bars give me, and the chocolate in this one was heavenly :) It was giant, crunchy, salty, and CHOCOLATEY!
Get yours! Raw Crunch
With the continue of crazy weather, during second period it was a crazy blizzard outside. lol
Lunch was a Turkey Riccotta wrap, with apples, and a Breyers Yocrunch!
Wrap are the best on the Italian Flatout ;)
After school, we stopped to get gas in our car, and it is FRRREEEEZZZING outside! So we got home and warmed up with our fav. Carmel Tea and some Popcorn. Yum!
Now that you are all caught up, we are gonna go continue watching our Hills Marathon on MTV, listen to the rain, and maybe cook up a Frushetta Pizza. It is friday night baby! And the night is still young. Let the weekend begin, or work. lol oh well, better than school :)
