Breakfast: It was National French Toast Day and you know how I must celebrate all wacky holidays. I made a Microwave Protein Cake that had all the flavors of French Toast.
Shelly's 5 Minute French Toast Protein Cake
1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Eggnog (I used Soy Nog)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Caramel Torani Syrup
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
2 Tablespoons Almond Flour or Meal
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 - 2 cup Measuring Cup or Microwave Safe Mug
In a measuring cup or microwave safe mug, Mix egg, eggnog, syrup, and oil (can sub applesauce or cottage cheese) and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, almond meal, spices, protein powder and salt.
Tip dry into wet and stir till combined. Nuke in microwave for 2-3 minutes... (microwaves vary, mine takes 2:30) just watch the top, when dry it's done. Let it sit for three or so minutes (it pulls away from the sides) before tipping the cake onto a plate. Yields 4-5 slices. Great served with Homemade No Sugar Added Whipped Cream with a dash of cinnamon & nutmeg on top or I pan sauteed it with a little dab of butter and served it warm and toasty with a drizzle of Sugar Free Maple Syrup.
Cook's Note: You can also turn any of my protein cake recipes into 12 mini muffins. Just pour batter in a non-stick sprayed, mini muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (till toothpick comes out clean)

Lunch: My bento lunch box was especially tasty today.
Pink Box (top left): Cheddar Cheese Cubes and Mustard for dipping
Green Box (top right): Dill Pickle Chips
Blue Box (bottom left): Roast Beef Cold Cut Roll-up
Orange Box (bottom right): a hunk of Quest Cereal Bar
That Quest Cereal Bar... it's totally waffles... melted butter and maple syrup... OMG yum! It's not the same texture as regular Quest Bars (not suitable for cookie making) this is more like a rice krispie treat sort of texture.
I love my Quest cookies and they do have better stats but this was a yummy treat. Oh they make 2 other flavors too: Cinnamon Roll and Chocolate. I haven't tried those. I'll get around to it one of these days but this flavor is going to be hard to top.
I love trying new things... well mostly. I did try a protein bar made out of crickets once. It tasted actually OK (Larabar-ish) but I couldn't get over the thought that I was chewing those things that you find in your basement back east. I took one for the team.
and they gave me a pin...

Dinner: I jazzed up a box of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Soup. I just sauteed a small onion till golden brown. Tossed in a 1/2 cup of cooked sausage (Jimmy Dean, refrigerator section, always in my freezer pantry) till browned a bit and warmed through and added that to a boxed pumpkin soup.
I served it with Homemade Crunchy Cheese. I made a nice sized batch. Leftovers get a little bendy but I still think they are tasty that way. I store them in a Pyrex lidded bowl on the counter.
