01/15/12: Fig & Oat Scones w/Goat Cheese & Caper Scramble

We debated on having a left over pizza scramble or frittata this morning for breakfast. It's one of the best uses of left over pizza of any kind. But I had talked a big game about making scones this morning to have for the week and I felt compelled to pull through.

Last night I came up with the idea of using our scone recipe from last weekend and changing the ingredients. Instead of apple cinnnamon drop scones, I made fig & oat scones. Their kind of more like a biscuit, in that they are shaped differently and aren't quite as "hard" as a scone. Regardless they did not dissapoint. The recipe consisted of many of the same basic ingredients all baked in the oven for 10-15 min (or until golden brown) at 400 degrees.

  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1/8 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of sea salt
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 splash of apple juice (maybe 3 tbsp) 
  • 1 cup Greek yo
  • Juice 1/2 an orange
  • 1/3 cup chopped figs
  • handful of walnuts
  • sprinkle of brown sugar

We whipped up some scrambled eggs with goat cheese and threw in a few capers, served with a side of fruit. Needless to say we have managed to hit all nutritional areas (carbs, fats & protein) and our bellies are now full to take on the day. Even thought it's going to be a lazy day....One can't relax on an empty stomach...haha.

I'm Pregnant-Don't Comment on My Weight

I am now 30 weeks pregnant with my second child. I'm excited...I'm over this pregnancy though. I'm sure several of you can relate. I now have an inquisitive, adventurous and busy 2.75 year old running around. It's been a hot summer. I hate the humidity. I'm glad we are only a few days away the official start of Fall. AND I'm ready to say F you to anyone else who feels it appropriate to comment on the additional weight I have gained during this pregnancy.

Before having Augie, I was in the best shape of my life. I exercised daily-vigorously. I ate healthy and cooked elaborate, fun meals. I had hobbies.

This pregnancy has been harder on my body and my brain. I started 10 lbs heavier, less fit, more sleep deprived and still searching to find a balance between being a Mom, maintaining a strong relationship with Andy and being the best in my work life as possible.

I've been to the Dr. plenty of times - Had plenty of ultrasounds - Had potential gall bladder pains/…

Going Gluten Free-Dairy Free

Over the past several weeks I've changed my diet drastically. The wee one is a gassy little man and as I have adjusted my diet, I've noticed things have changed for the better. There is a lot of information floating around about eliminating certain foods from your diet which can irritate babies digestive systems. The major players that can affect infants are dairy, wheat, soy, eggs, beans, broccoli, spinach, peanuts, and citrus fruits, among a few others. I have cut all of these out of my diet except for eggs. This means no cheese, greek yogurt and other good things that I love to eat....however I've noticed that with cutting these things out, not only is Augie's digestive system is mine. It's a win win. Of course I still miss eating a few of these things (specifically cheese, greek yo and peanut butter!), but I feel pretty good with the whole process. 
So, with undertaking this adventure we have embarked on some new dishes in the kitchen. We are still g…

Roller Derby Shower!

This is me, Sinful Sally, on skates just over a year ago. My last bout, before hanging up my skates for retirement, was in August 2010.

This is me now...

Today was the roller derby shower, hosted by my derby chicks that I used to spend 2-4 nights a week and numerous weekends every month.  I miss seeing them so often. And after skating a bout last night and staying out late to party, they made the baby shower a day to remember. It was, over the top, fantastic and a blast.

We played lots of games:

The baby picture game...bring your baby picture and try to pick out who is who. The draw what the baby will look like...using a paper plate on top of your head. The diaper game...split into teams of three, take one roll of TP, create a diaper as fast as you can with the WHOLE roll.

The name that tune (title and artist) with 17 songs which have the name Baby or Babe in the title. 

Turbo Trixie made a boat load of phenomenal food (I should have taken pictures: artichoke dip, homemade pretzels, mea…
