How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good thanks to a lot of nothingness lol. The past few weekends have been the most uneventful weekends I have had in a long time. I am simply taking in every uneventful moment because the past year of my life was a whirlwind. Between the wedding, vacations, honeymoons, other weddings, a new boat to name a few things… it felt like we never had a moment to ourselves. What happened to the days where we used to binge watch TV all day? lol Honestly, I don’t even want to do that anymore – it makes me feel so lazy. I like a nice in between ?
So Friday after work I had to stop at a few stores and I made this dinner again because I still had 2 scallion pancakes, sauce and even leftover cilantro:
Saturday we had to sit around in the house because our bed frame was delivered. It was coming between 1-4pm and wound up getting there about 4pm on the dot. I did make a grain free lemon cake which did not come out good. I had high hopes & wanted to make it all summer so I’m happy I finally got to it but it was disappointing. Very Dry. I had to leave the house after I started to make it to get more almond flour. I only had about a cup left and I needed 1.5 cups! I was slightly annoyed lol #fail
But our bed looks amazing!! I just need to do something about the exposed mattress. I have a king sized comforter so I don’t know why its so short �?
Saturday night Brian decided to make me dinner and he didn’t skimp! Filet Mignon, bacon + spinach stuffed mushrooms, lobster tail and broccoli rabe. Life was good ?
Sunday we took the boat out. It was pretty cold and windy so we zipped around, took in the ocean and sea air then went out to lunch. We took this boat selfie.
Torani vs. DaVinci Taste Test!
I bought a few DaVinci syrups last year and among them was cookie dough. This year I wanted to buy a pumpkin pie flavored syrup and I didn’t know what brand to go with. So since I was low on cookie dough from DaVinci I bought it from Torani and tried them both to see which made my taste buds happier
It took me a while to decide. I made 2 cups of coffee and added 1.5 TBSP of syrup to each. I kept going back and forth and in the end for me, it was Torani. I am very picky with this stuff. You would think that eating sugar free stuff my whole life would make me used to it. I will take the real sugar version any day if I could. I don’t love fake tastes. DaVinci tastes a little bit more fake – just slightly.
So, do you have a favorite brand and or flavor? What do you make with it? I like to use syrups mostly in smoothies.
