What I Ate Wednesday is a visual food journal of one day of eats as Sugar-Free Mom.
Tomorrow is Halloween!! Are you ready or not? My kiddies have their costumes and will go trick or treating in case you were wondering. I'm sugar-free and don't eat candy unless I make it myself sugar-free but I don't require my kids to follow my lifestyle. They eat what I make them and enjoy all my sugar-free recipes but I do allow them to have candy on occasion. It's limited of course but yes they may have it. I definitely think depriving them of trick or treating would just make them want it all the more. I am however hoping to get this brittle perfected to share tomorrow as a great alternative to passing out traditional candy if you're opposed to it. 🙂
This day of eats was over the weekend on Saturday. My kids and I got up early since we had to go deliver bags in the neighborhood with the cubscouts for our annual food drive. Hubby made me an egg and some veggies before we all headed out into the cold outdoors for two hours. He's pretty sweet, I'll keep him.
After the delivering of bags to the homes in the area we headed straight to a soccer game AND IT WAS EVEN COLDER!! The wind was blowing and I could have used some earmuffs for sure. All I had was a scarf, coat and coffee. Here's a pic of my newly colored hair the day before. Not sure if I'm liking the reddish tones, maybe go darker next time. Anyway after 45 minutes a a score of 1-0 with my little guys team winning we headed home for lunch.
Lunch was a quick salad with spinach, fennel, beats and peppers and hummus on the side. Easy, fast and enough.
Look what I happily found when I went shopping at Whole Foods in the afternoon!! I was so excited! First time I have ever found this product. I used it in my brittle you'll see below and then used it again yesterday and melted it. Works wonderfully. Melts terrific and tastes great too!
The recipe needs a few tweaks before I can post it but I hoping to get to it today and share it tomorrow! The oldest picky teen loved it and the younger to kiddies as well. The hubby wasn't a fan. Can't win them all, I however think with a few changes the hubby will love it.
My daughter had a dance event with dinner included so since her friends mothers are my friends we decided to head to a restaurant for a leisurely dinner until we had to go back and get them. We went to a restaurant called Papparazzi in Garden City of Cranston, RI. Super great atmosphere and the food was amazing. I got a chicken piccata with a lemon asparagus risotto. Very yummy indeed.
So are you letting your children trick or treat??
