Thanks so much to everyone who has stopped by The Yummy Life. Your comments provide ideas and inspiration for me and all who visit. Here are some random tidbits, a.k.a. Yummy Chatter.
The morning after Valentine's Day . . .
I don't know about you, but I have a sugar hangover today. Those Valentine's treats about did me in. Look for some healthier recipes in the next few days. I have been a very naughty girl. This old body of mine is screaming for some veggies.
Hope you had a good Valentine's Day. King-Man and I went out to dinner and came home for dessert: angle food cake with strawberries, hot fudge sauce, and whipped cream. This might have something to do with why I'm OD'd on sugar today. Ugh.
I will be sharing that hot fudge recipe with you soon. It's the easiest, best hot fudge. But first some healthy recipes. I have to stop being naughty. Dang it. For a few days, at least. A healthy, refreshing salad will be coming up in my next post.
Here's what Brackenthebox and Rachel had for their romantic Valentine's Day meal at their Boston condo. I love the cardboard box next to the elegant table setting. The box is for their kitty Sal. His favorite "toy". Sal pretty much runs the place.
Their meal looks way healthier than what we had. Usually Occasionally, my son and daughter-in-law are much more mature and sensible than I am. I'll bet they don't have a sugar hangover today like me. Although, maybe they just didn't take a photo of dessert.
Yummy friend, Sandy sent these photos when she made my Taco Seasoning Mix recipe. Sandy used a Cuisinart Smart Power Compact Blender to mix it up, and said that a batch fit perfectly in one of the containers. This is a kitchen appliance I don't happen to own (uh-oh, King-Man gets nervous when he knows that I've learned about a new kitchen gadget that's out there). I think it's used primarily for smoothies, but it also works well for small batches of other things. Like Taco Seasoning Mix. Thanks so much for sharing the photos and tip, Sandy. Beautiful layers in the first photo!
♦Spanish Romesco Sauce from Simply Recipes. This recipe has so many of my favorite ingredients (smoked paprika, roasted red bell peppers, almonds); it has to be delicious. It is kind of a pesto alternative. Elise's recipes are consistently good. I'm trying this one, for sure!
Do you have a sugar hangover today, too? Maybe you weren't as naughty as me.
Make it a yummy day!
