Oven Pancake


loved reading all your comments to the "kids" question!!

I took the day off from blogging yesterday, but here are my Friday eats:

Breakfast was a bowl of coffee oats (1/2 cup coffee, 1/2 cup almond breeze, 1/2 cup quick oats) with 1/2 a banana cooked in, and almond butter, maple flakes, and yogurt raisins for toppings.

I went out for lunch with people from work, and I had a Cajun chicken wrap with about 1/3 of the chips:

Last night I went to a friends place for a girls get together.
I knew there would be food there, so I just had a couple pieces of toast for "supper" before heading over.

I was right about the food. I nibbled throughout the night ...

I also had 2 drinks throughout the evening.

This morning I made a fresh juice with 1 pear, 1 grapefruit, 1/2 pineapple, and an orange:

I also made an oven pancake that I topped with some pumpkin yogurt.

Oven Pancake

- 1 T butter
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup almond breeze
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 t salt

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the butter in a 9" pie pan and put it in the oven to melt. Brush the butter around the bottom and sides of the pan. In a bowl, beat the other ingredients just until mixed. Pour them in to the pan. Bake 25 minutes until the pancake is golden brown and puffed.

For the pumpkin yogurt I mixed some plain Greek yogurt with the pumpkin butter that I made a while ago and froze.

I met some girlfriends for lunch at the Creek Bistro. I got crepes filled with veggies, and Asiago cheese, topped with a mushroom sauce. On the side were some roasted potatoes. It was excellent!

This evening the hubby and I went to Korea House, one of my VERY favourite restaurants (3 restaurants in 2 days - yikes!)

Miso soup and kimchi were brought out first:

And then we each got the hot stone bee bim bop:

The bowl is sizzling hot, and you stir it up real fast so the egg cooks and some of the rice gets crispy. Nom. Nom. Nom.

I absolutely LOVE Korean food! I crave kimchi (fermented cabbage).

What is your favourite type of cuisine?
What are your plans for tonight, or the rest of the weekend?

The hubby and I are headed to a friend's party tonight!

3 restaurants in 2 days is a lot, but going out to eat is so much fun! My favorite cuisine is Thai Food.

Kacy said...

I love the idea of that oven pancake!!

Thai and Indian are up there, but I change faves all the time.

No big plans tonight but tomorrow I'm going to a movie and getting something to eat with a friend I haven't seen in a long time. Looking forward to it!

I totally thought those yogurt covered raisins were mini eggs! Haha, looks yummy though!!

My favourite food, hmmmm, I think it depends what I'm craving but I LOVE japanese (sushi) and Italian (pizza, pasta, red wine!)

I haven't tried Korean food but I love Japanese food! Tempura yam, salmon done any which way, avocado + shiitake sushi, tempura yam sushi, miso soup... anything! There is a place I like to go to that serves homemade green tea cheesecake. So delicious!

I tend to enjoy Indian food, too, but I usually make that at home more often. :)

I'm hoping to organize my week tomorrow with groceries, meal planning, and general cleaning.

TOO many delicious foods...CREPES? KOREAN FOOD? I'm jealous. I worked this weekend so no fun for me! btw girls nights with apps are FUN.

Sarah said...

My favourite cuisine has to be Indian or Italian. I crave both if I don't have them at least once a week (home cooked, though, so it's a wee bit healthier than the restaurants!)

I have a kind of nosy question to ask so you dont need to answer if you dont want to. You always are trying diff things that you said companies have sent you and I was just wondering how you got to that point? I am studying to be a health fitness specialist and would LOVE to try the things that you have gotten (especially the amazing grass!) Anyway, I was just wondering if there was a way to sign up for it or not. Thanks so much!

yesterday I had a Zumba workshop and dealt with a lot of crap. Today my calves are sore, but nothing too major. Also last night we went out for supper to a pasta place, but you can substitute the pasta for Spaghetti Squash! How awesome is that!

Tonight we're heading out to my parents place for my dads birthday supper. I need to find him a gift today! AHH

I love yoghurt raisins so much. Too much. I can't buy them because I just eat them until I feel sick. It's terrible.
