A Non Baker Kind of Cobbler

Good evening everyone, thank you so much for all the tips and advice for improving NHerShoes. I loved all of your ideas, and I didn’t delete Fusion Jazz anyone’s comments, I promise.

Most of you would like to see more of my coaching, workouts, running playlists, more food, and even some vlogging, I will get right on it! Thanks for all the wonderful comments!!!

Work today flew by! It’s my busy season and I have people registering for camps like crazy! At 10am I had a little snacky snack, my last Voskos Greek Yogurt, need more!

By Noon I was ready to have lunch more the usual, I was actually staring at the clock. Today I brought another Avacado+Veggie Sammie

food 162

Love these:) Avocado, Cucumbers, Tomato, Dijon Mustard, and hair Sprouts

I had a summer salad on the side. I am kind of looking forward to the Fall so that I can have SOUP!

My boss’s boss also shared half of his peach with me because mine was bad :( , what a nice guy.

My Pre-Workout Snack was 2 rice cakes, PB, and a small Gala apple.

Right after work I ran off to coach cross-country practice, today was SPEED WORKOUT day. We ran a one mile warm up and then did 4x100’s fast and 4X100’s recovery slow. After the track workout, we did some crunches, lunges, push-ups, and plank.

I have a fun thing I do with my kiddo’s and the plank. If they can hold the plank longer then me, I have to bring them a surprise at the next practice. No one has beat me YET! What should I bring them if they win???

When I got home I picked some Basil from the Garden and saw this Egg Plant growing, it looks like it is almost about ready but it’s so small. Don’t mind the dead grass, Hubby killed it, he is planting new grass as I type.

While cooking dinner I opened a wonderful package that I got today in the mail!!! It’s a cook book called, Clean Food by Terry Walters. I am so excited to read it.

I made Turkey Spaghetti tonight and it started like this….before…

food 168

and after! I added baby cherrie tomatoes, spinach and a  little rosemary.

food 169

This was one of the best bowls of spaghetti I have ever made. The sauce was perfect, I made it from scratch! I used one can of tomato sauce, 1/2 can of tomato paste, 2 tablespoons of Stevia, some of Emeril’s All Purpose Seasoning, Italian seasoning, and love of course! 

Hubby and I are having dinner at my Mama’s house tomorrow night and I am in charge of Dessert. Since I won’t have time to make it tomorrow I prepared it tonight. I made Kath’s friend’s Ashley’s Healthy Peach Crisp!!

food 171

I followed the recipe exactly except I added blueberries. This is perfect for the non baker like myself if I can make it ANYONE CAN!!!

food 172

I baked it for 20 minutes and tomorrow when I get to my Mama’s house I am going to finish baking it for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. 

food 173

This one is going in my cookbook!

Look at the pic Hubby just took!!

Your garden looks amazing! I'm jealous! We currently live in an apartment, but I can't wait until the day I can grow a garden. The farmers' market will have to do for now!

Can you explain what the 4*100's in running means, i am still kind learing about it but always seems to confuse me a bit !

Lauren said...

I agree, that is one of the prettiest bowls of spaghetti I have ever seen. So glad you added this to your cookbook. When can I buy it? ;)

Take care love!

Rosey Rebecca said...

I made a crisp last night too! I used blackberries, blueberries, and bananas. Yum!

Shannon said...

mmm, i need another crisp in my life soon :) love your bedroom! and look at your garden grow ;)

Lizzy said...

Yummy pasta! looks amazing!

as a non baker as myself i think i should try this peach cobbler for sure!

have a wonderful day :)

brandi said...

mmm...i love cobblers :) i hope you had a good run this morning!

Jessica said...

I love your cookbook - so cute! Your eggplant is super cute too! :)

Pam (Highway to Health) said...

The cobbler looks awesome!! I think that may be a must try!

Christy said...

I had a suggestion for your spaghetti sauce. I noticed you said you added 2 tbl of stevia? That seems like quite a bit. Have you ever tried adding balsamic vinegar to the sauce? It's my secret ingredient because it adds such a tangy sweetness when you let it cook down about 10-15 minutes. Then I don't have to add any additional sweetener! Just a thought! :)

I love your cookbook....could you maybe sometime give us an inside glimpse of how you have it organized? I am constantly trying to tame my recipe collection, but have not come up with a great way!

Ha ha ha you're funny Bobbi. No worries. Saw my suggestion posted back up (on previous blog to this). Usually don't see replies to questions I tweet or add in my comments so I thought you just read them and move on. But thanks for mentioning it. Really enjoy your blogs. Even though we don't ever exchange dialogue. LOL!

It's National Dog Day today. All day (and 1/2 the night). Celebrate Bosco with super extra treats!
