Once Upon A Cinnamon Protein Drink...

Ugh!!! I am in LOVE! I started catching up with a show on tv, Once Upon a Time. I love it! It's so different and I have always been a fairy tale lover, so it was meant to be.

On a foodie note, while watching it, I noticed they kept drinking hot cocoa with cinnamon on top. Not being one to judge a book by it's cover, I had to try it. If this is a common way to drink hot cocoa, then I have unfortunately been unaware for three decades!

Of course, I turned it into a hot protein drink, and NOM NOM, I have a new favorite winter meal!

Once Upon a Cinnamon Protein Drink:

4 oz milk of your choice (I used 1%)
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 packet no sugar added hot chocolate mix
2 tbsp granulated splenda (or two packets)
3 pumps SF Cinnamon Dolce syrup (starbucks brand)
8 oz boiling water

Optional topping:
Whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon

Mix powders in milk until lump free. Add in splenda and syrup. Then, slowly pour in boiling water (about one oz at a time) until all the h2o is mixed in. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon.

Mmmmmmm, it was soooo good and check out the porn!

Been a while...

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it's been a while, I got married and had a lot of planning prior to that taking up a lot of my time. But, I am here now and wanted to share what I made for supper tonight... It was soooo nummy!

Eggface's Pork Carnitas!

Yup, I made her recipe (I make her recipes often, they are so good) only I didn't do the whole browning the meat thing because I was throwing it together pre-coffee this morning (yes, I drink a lil coffee each day).

So, it is a bit different, but still came out really yummy and the hubby gobbled it up, too.

In crock pot, place pork roast (is that the proper term? It's a big hunk of pork anyhow) in and sprinkle with salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and garlic powder. Top with jar of salsa and cook on low all day. Once I got home, I slices some onion and sauteed it in olive oil with a little salt and pepper. For me, I a 1/4 cup of the onions in a bowl and on top of that I put a 1/2 cup of the pork mixture and topped with taco cheese and a small spoonful of sour cream. YUM!

I am going to attempt a pumkin pie hot protein drink later tonight... If it comes out good, I promise to post it. If it sucks, I won't. Hahahaha
