Floats, Frapps and a First

Yesterday

Ryan and I were still in vacation mode throughout the day yesterday. Ryan even refused to unpack until 8:30 last night so the vacation wouldn’t be officially over until the evening. :)

Since the vacation mindset still plagued us, we decided to keep the yummy vacation eats going and enjoy two ice-cold favorites: a light pumpkin spice Frappuccino for me and a root beer float for Ryan.

I ordered this while we were running errands at a nearby outlet mall and the icy cold drink definitely cooled me down… a little too much! I was freeeeezing in every store for an hour after I finished the delicious drink.

Made Just For Me! :)

Shocking news of the month: Ryan and I left the outlet mall and he was the only one who bought anything! Victory!!!

We stopped by the grocery store on the way home where Ryan was instantly drawn to the ice cream freezers. He picked up a pint of vanilla ice cream and a two liter of root beer to make a good old fashioned root beer float.

Naturally I enjoyed quite a few spoonfuls of his vanilla ice cream before it made it into the float. ;) I’m not a huge root beer float gal. I like ‘em, but I prefer milkshakes about 1,000 times more.

We sure do love our ice-creamy treats in this household. :)

Today

My day started on a good note when the morning BodyPump instructor heard that Ryan and I recently got engaged and gave me a big ol’ hug at 5:40 a.m.  Hugs that early in the morning feel great! Other women in the class were also excited, so I started the day with a big smile on my face (that quickly disappeared as soon as we started doing squats. ;) Ugh! )

Last night I planned ahead for my breakfast and made my first attempt at baked chips! I baked a Joseph’s lavash bread into cinnamon sugar chips for dipping into my Greek yogurt.

I cut the lavash into chips with kitchen sheers and placed the chips on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. I then lightly sprayed the chips with cooking spray and topped them with a sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar.

I baked them at 350 degrees until the edges were slightly brown and the lavash bread became slightly crispy.

The chips came out perfectly… very tasty! They reminded me of cinnamon sugar pita chips.

For breakfast today, I used the chips to dip into my Greek yogurt. I stirred freshly sliced strawberries into the yogurt and then scooped ‘em out with the sweet lavash chips.

I paired the chips and yogurt with a tumbler of hot Barnie’s cinnamon butter cookie, complements of my gym! Gotta love free coffee.

Question: What are your favorite kind of chips (healthy or not)?

I think my favorite chips are sea salt and vinegar chips or cheddar and sour cream chips. Yummmm. Greasy goodness.

    BBQ chips!!

    Btw…I make those chips too (although, have never used Lavash but I think I will start). I make a homeade fruit salsa, that is absolutely sweet and delicious, and dip the cinnamon chips into the salsa!
