500th Post Philly Style

In honor of my upcoming trip to the City of Brotherly Love: Philadelphia I made a few yummy dishes with a Philly feel.

Shelly's Philly Cheesesteak Tortilla Pizza

Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortilla topped with shaved roast beef, sauteed peppers, onions & mushrooms, a twist of black pepper was on both but then the great cheese debate ensued...

I made 2 versions: A Whiz Wit (that's with Cheese Whiz)

and a Provi (with Provolone Cheese)

and for dessert...

Shelly's "Rocky Balboa" Road Protein Ice Cream

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF White Chocolate)
2 Tablespoons Nuts, chopped (I used walnuts, pecans, almonds combo)
1 Sugar Free Marshmallow Peep, chopped up

Mix together milk, protein powder and syrup together. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add the nuts and peep. You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish but I like to put it in the freezer to set for an hour or so.

I finally found a use for the peeps that were bouncing around my freezer since Easter...

First Degree Peepicide - this peep must have pissed off the wrong person.

Highlights of the day:

* Hey a little heads up for those of you going to the Philly or LA OH events... there will be tons of groovy prizes. Beth (Melting Mama) and I even get to raffle off some fun stuff.

* This meal was sooooo good and I'm even more jazzed about going to Philly now.

* I just realized this is my 500th post on Eggface Wow! I talk a lot.

OMG, that little peep, you chopped off his wittle head!
Got my icecream maker yesterday and the bowl has been happily freezing overnight, so tonight I'm making one of your icecream recipes.
BTW, cooking.com is selling your ice cream maker in a sexy red with an extra bowl right now. Wish I'd seen it before, but oh well!

When you post your recipes for example the Philly cheese steak pizza, do you eat the whole thing or just a portion?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

I ate the 2 slices pictured above. I usually have 2 slices (they are fajita size) especially with meat toppings but if it was just cheese maybe another. It really depends on how far out you are and your lifestyle and goals... ask your Dr and dietitian what your portion sizes should be at your stage. Hope that helps.
