When I woke up this morning my sweet tooth was non-existent. In fact, it was slightly aching from some late night Easter candy AND ice cream. Around 11pm last night I felt like I wanted dessert but couldn’t decided between candy and ice cream. I went with candy and had a bit of Easter Bunny and a frozen mini Mr. Goodbar. After finishing that I wanted ice cream (go figure) so I had a double scoop of Mint Cookies and Cream and Vanilla topped with fresh sliced strawberries. I curbed my cravings but it might not have been the best “pre-bed” snack. I quickly ruled out cereal and even the notion of nut-butter and banana oats seemed TOO sweet. I decided that a runny egg was the only thing that would satisfy.
For breakfast I had Cinnamon Raisin Toast with Pumpkin Butter and Extra Cinnamon, Fried Egg, Strawberries and a Valencia Orange. I finished it all off with a cup of Black Tea. This was a delicious combination. I love fried eggs with something sweet, and the pumpkin butter had just enough sweetness without overwhelming my throbbing sweet tooth.
Fun fact: I actually BURNED my first piece of toast this morning. I started laughing, because a) I can’t remember the last time I completely burned a piece of toast and b) toast is the easiest thing to make and I cook WAY more complex things. EH, such is life. I also discovered that my pumpkin butter was on its last legs :(. I literally scraped the jar for my toast, but I decided to keep the jar as a yogurt vessel to REALLY scrape it clean. I do not waste a drop!
