Sadly my crab rangoon roll ups that I made before the movie were NOT award worthy. It wasn't even a taste so much as a texture thing, the canned crab really felt gross. It was kind of like hair or something. Note to self, spring for the fresh crab meat at the seafood counter. I did have an almond Snickers at the movie and it was delightful.
Saturday was so beautiful! We went for breakfast at our favorite bakery, La Provence. I had an insanely huge breakfast compared to what I normally eat, so I was stuffed by the time we left! I got the "daybreaker" breakfast, so I had two sunny side up eggs, chicken sausage, and roasted potatoes. I also got a very lovely passion fruit mimosa. Our breakfasts also came with a croissant, raspberry jam and a piece of brie cheese!!! It's way too much food, literally two people can split one thing. I did eat the brie with a little spoonful of the jam, but I saved the croissant for my breakfast today. After that we came home and got Molly to take her for a walk so that we could justify eating such a crazy breakfast! We couldn't believe how pretty the weather was, I even wore shorts with knee socks on the walk because it was so warm in the sun that you really didn't need a full on warm up outfit. We walked for two miles, so not bad.

this one from Alex Guarnaschelli from the Food Network. I figure that she is Italian and has a bunch of successful restaurants so that it couldn't be that bad. I used the pizza crust yeast, and even though it says you don't have to let it rise, I did for like an hour. I also chopped up some fresh rosemary and added to the dough for a little pizzaz, then topped the pizza with bell pepper, basil, green olives, mushrooms, caramelized onions and cheese. I have to say, I was so pleased with how it turned out! The dough was incredibly easy to roll out and handle, and it baked up just the way I liked, thin, crisp on the edges and chewy in the middle.
My TOM is in full swing, so I don't have high hopes for the scale tomorrow. Having a lovely French breakfast plus a pizza night within one day probably won't help my case, but I guess we'll see. Maybe I'm wrong since I've been more moderate today. I did do Day 11 and 12 of my Stomach Solution program, so I'm almost done with Week 2! For next week I'm going to start adding in some ballet barre challenges to the mix, though I need to make a final decision which ones!
