two Q tuesday!

by Janetha on April 6, 2010

in meals

it cracks me up (and surprises me!) how many of you thought that coffee cake actually tastes like coffee!! actually, unless it is coffee flavored coffee cake, it doesn’t taste like coffee at all. it tastes like whatever flavor of coffee cake it is, and is meant to be eaten with coffee~ hence the term “coffee cake”.  now you know!

here is the link to the recipe for my apple cinnamon protein coffee cake with almonds.

i have already eaten half of the batch. better save some for tomorrow (wednesday) which is national coffee cake day!  i am pretty excited to mess around with the recipe and make different variations. i will post them as i create them.

there were some great tips left in the comments section of my last post. here are a few:

  • “One thing I have done is replaced all my oil with applesauce (same ratio) when baking.” –ashlan
  • “cooking tip—I always heat the pan BEFORE i put in the olive oil so when the veggies get added, you should hear a nice sizzle, this prevents the food from burning!” –naomi
  • “Kitchen tips… well, my biggest tip would be read the WHOLE recipe the ENTIRE way through- then you can estimate how long everything takes, get ALL your ingrdients out at once, measure, weigh and you’re good to go. So much easier that way!!” –kristin
  • “The only tip I can think of is to not be afraid of aluminum foil! I don’t know why but I used to never use it, but its such a clean up saver! I’m going to start lining saute pans with it” –bre
  • “I always microwave my milk/water for oats before adding them to the pan. The oats cook so much faster when the liquid is already warm!! This is especially good for steel cut oats, which take FOREVER.” –gabriela
  • “I buy jarred minced garlic. Seriously makes my life so much easier.” –lara
  • “I chop all my veggies needed for the week on Sundays. Makes salad and wrap making much easier.” –paige
  • “I sometimes pre-cook veggies in the microwave for a couple minutes before roasting them so they cook quicker – especially baked sweet potatoes.” – susan
  • “My cooking tip is to read blogs for cooking tips. HAHA!” –ildie

great tips :)

this morning i woke up to SNOW.. it has been snowing a bunch lately! i heard that the resorts got over 2 feet of fresh snow last night. too bad i am stuck at work all day, every day. the snow does me no good.

meals

i originally planned to have a protein shake this morning, but when i saw the cold weather outside, i opted for a hot breakfast.

meal 1: apricot vanilla protein oats @ 8:45 AM

IMG_9360

i made my usual batch of protein oats using 1/3 cup oats, 1.5 cups water, cinnamon and 1 serving of EAS vanilla premium protein powder.

IMG_9361

i topped the oats with 1 TB of polaner sugar free apricot preserves. this is a new-to-me product and i definitely give it two thumbs up!

IMG_9365

the apricot preserves went well with the vanilla and cinnamon in the oats. this combo is definitely going into my protein oats rotation!

i had to make a trip to costco to get some items for the office. i had two samples~ a piece of a trio bar (really liked it!) and three green grapes.

IMG_9369IMG_9370

after costco i came back to the office for a light lunch because i ended up with an impromptu late lunch date with an old friend who is in town.

meal 2: apple cinnamon protein coffee cake + brown cow yogurt @ 12:15 PM

IMG_9372

i decided that coffee cake goes just as well with greek yogurt as it does with coffee.

IMG_9371

i crumbled the cake into the yogurt, a bit at a time.

IMG_9373

the apple cinnamon flavors paired fabulously with the tartness of the greek yogurt!

around 2:15, marshall and i picked out the tile for our house! i am so excited! luckily, my brother owns his own tile company so we really are in good hands when it comes to renovating our house. he is going to be the man with the plan! sure am glad my mom is a real estate agent, my brother is a tile expert, my sister in law has a great eye for interior design and i work for a window company. it makes this whole house buying & fixing up thing a lot less stressful!

i went to lunch at gourmandise bakery and when i went to take a photo of my salad, i realized i had my camera but no card. yipes. i left it at work!

meal 3: half of the greek salad with chicken @ 3:30 PM

the greek salad description:

Spring greens topped with Kalamata olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, pepperoncini
and croutons, served with our Greek vinaigrette. (Half: $4.95, Full: $6.75). Add roasted chicken breast for $1.50.

and add roasted chicken breast, i did! it came with a roll but i passed on it. that took self control.

i went home after work and changed for the gym. i really wanted to cuddle up with the pups.. but i knew better.

my heart rate never gets up there on upper body workout days! but i do feel like i am working hard and lifting heavy enough, that is what matters.

meals

i got home from the gym and immediately refueled with a square of apple cinnamon protein coffee cake.. i can’t get enough of the stuff!

IMG_9381

i had been thinking up dinner all day today! one of the packages i received yesterday was from mezzetta and it included some delicious goodies! behold:

IMG_9383

roasted red bell peppers, pesto and artichoke hearts.

i used the bell peppers and artichoke hearts in tonight’s meal, the pesto i am saving for another recipe i have in mind.

meal 4: chicken, artichoke & red pepper farfalle with feta + green beans @ 7:30 PM

IMG_9428

first, a bit about mezzetta! i was lucky enough to enjoy several of their products when i attended the first annual foodbuzz festival back in november.  i thought that everything i tried was delicious!

from their website:

thanks for fitting into MY busy lifestyle, mezzetta!

for the meal, i diced some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cooked it with some dried basil and minced garlic.

next, i chopped up the roasted red bell peppers and the artichoke hearts.

IMG_9405IMG_9406

i boiled some multigrain farfalle noodles. these have really high protein stats.. 10g for every 2 ounces. not bad for a noodle!

IMG_9402

for the sauce, i prepared this sweet basil pesto (you can buy it at target) which is made by simply organic.  for the record, it tells you to prepare the sauce with 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup olive oil. i used 3/4 cup water and 1 TB olive oil to cut the fat grams and calories. it worked perfectly.

IMG_9399

once everything was either cooked, chopped or boiled.. i mixed it all together!

IMG_9419

it needed to be warmed through, so i put it back on the stovetop for a few minutes.

IMG_9417

to finish the pasta off, i added some fat free feta.

IMG_9420

i also cooked some frozen green beans for some added veggie action.

voilà! dinner was served!

IMG_9433

my thoughts on the mezzetta products? YUM! i didn’t expect any less. but the real test was to see if marshall liked them. he gave the roasted red bell peppers and the artichoke hearts two thumbs up! and you know how i really know he loved the dish? he went back for seconds. that is always a good sign.

special thanks to brita at mezzetta for sending me these delicious products to try and review! disclaimer: i got the items free of charge and i was not paid to review the items.

SO! now we are current. i haven’t decided on meal 5 yet.. while i would love to have another slice of coffee cake i think i should probably switch it up ;)

***********************************************************

about the title of this post, you ask? well, last tuesday i answered two reader questions. i decided to do it again this week! usually i ask YOU GUYS two questions in every post.  on tuesdays, i will still ask my questions, but i will also answer a couple!

Q #1!

stef asked: “you’re going back to school? for what?” (p.s. i miss you stef!)

my answer: yep! i am going back to school. at the ripe old age of 27 (i turn 27 in june, going back to school in august) i will be hanging out with kids almost a decade younger than me. weird.

here is the story.  i took my sweet time (7 years on and off) getting my associates degree. yeah, i know, not so rad. i was not your typical graduate-high-school-then-go-to-college-for-4-years-and-get-a-degree type of person. i opted to work full time, study abroad in london, take time off for reasons that are beyond me, and i finally did get an associates degree about a year ago.

i have never really known what i wanted to study. some call it directionless.. i just call it indecisive.  my employer really wants me to get educated in accounting and they have offered to help me (financially) to get an accounting degree.  sweet!

obviously, i wouldn’t agree to doing this unless it was something i am interested in.  i have always loved numbers and math, i do well with accounting and financial planning.   when the opportunity came up, i put some thought into what my employer suggested and i agreed that it would be a great thing for both me and the company i work for.

SO.. there you have it! janetha b is going back to escuela. should be interesting, seeing as how i am a bit out of practice on the whole homework scene.

Q #2!

since that last one was pretty long, i picked a simple one for number two :)

bre asked: “Are you going to have peach ice cream at the wedding?” (i had mentioned that my wedding date falls on national peach ice cream day!)

my answer: sort of! we are having vanilla bean ice cream (my very favorite flavor of ice cream evvver) and then we will be serving fresh peaches on top! it should be delicious!

there you have it! two questions answered. if you have any questions you would like answered, please send me an email! (janethabenson at gmail dot com)

You are a BEAST with the weights! I am in awe of your strength. Clearly I need to up the L-Bs myself!

I went to a liberal arts college and have a degree in Communications with a minor in poli sci. Then I went to law school and obviously graduated with a law degree and passed the bar (yeah, that JD is doing me NO good now). I think I’m using my undergrad experience far more than my law school education, these days, although, you don’t want to get in an argument with me. I’m GOOD. Not as good as I could be if I upped the weights, though!

Have a good day, J!

Morgan April 7, 2010 at 10:10 am

I majored in Sociology and Anthropology at Brandeis right outside of Boston. Then I was all idealistic and wanted to change the world and went to law school. I hated it, but was determined to finish, and now I have no idea what to do with my life. I’ll figure it out eventually, but right now career is on hold for a few months :)
OMG, vanilla bean ice cream is my favorite thing on the planet. It’s the best dessert.

Graze With Me April 7, 2010 at 10:16 am

Hahaha, I just posted a link to that exact same article today!

I did the whole graduate-high-school-then-go-to-college-for-4-years-and-get-a-degree deal and it was meh. I didn’t have ANY idea what I was interested in when I started CSU in 2003 and by graduation in 2007 I had just picked Sociology out of human interest. I’m a people watcher!

Honestly I don’t want to do anything with my degree, it’s totally useless. I am thinking about going for a Master’s in Nutrition but that’s just a dream for now.

My mom makes killer apricot jam from her apricot tree. I could sit with a jar and a spoon and be in heaven.

runnerforever April 7, 2010 at 10:46 am

I am in college, favorite jam is strawberry.
I noticed you always eat 5 smaller meals instead of the usual 3 bigger ones. All of your meals look great by the way. Do you break it up this way to help build muscle or what, I am just curious what the benefits are.

luckytastebuds April 7, 2010 at 10:48 am

Hii Janetha!! I really admire the fact that you’re going back to school, but don’t worry, you’re FAR from being “ripe” at 27. I’m going to dental school in Boston this August and apparently there are students who are 40+ years old, so…no shame at all! Especially if your education is paid for!!!! CONGRATULATIONS, its something to be celebrated!!

I would have to say strawberry and raspberry are both my all time favorite jams. I’ve NEVER been disappointed!!

famishedtofantastic April 7, 2010 at 10:52 am

Congrats on going back to school!!! It is even sweeter that your employer is going to help you do it!
I too took forever to get my associates degree. I went away to school right after high school but my eating disorder started then and sucked the life out of me. Needless to say I worked full time for a few years and then went back part time to get my associates (that was about 6 years ago). I have now just embarked on the journey of becoming an RD. I will be thirty this year and really want to have a career I am passionate about. It will be a long hard road seeing as I can only do classes while working full time and raising my daughter but I know it will be worth it in the end. I also hope it shows my daughter that woman are strong and can do anything they put thier minds to.

Danica April 7, 2010 at 11:00 am

I hate that when I forget my camera chip, but, you know your DROID actually takes really good pics as a back up. I was shocked at mine :D

Dinner looks delish…I have a jar of their Pesto too back from the Foodbuzz Fest and I have yet to use it. I can’t wait to see how you use yours :) Maybe I’ll use it for Pesto Pizzettes – member those???? I think it’s the whole, you have to use the jar in 10 days and there is alot of calories/fat in one jar. I could always freeze it maybe…just thinking outloud.

Off to check out the NYtimes article and your recipe too! YUM!

peanutbutterfingers April 7, 2010 at 11:10 am

i gotta try that coffee cake. i loooove coffee cake with my whole heart! ;)

also, i think it’s wonderful that you’re going back to school. i hope you enjoy it!

emily April 7, 2010 at 11:41 am

1. High school, straight to undergrad, finished in two years with a double major. Taught 8th grade english for two years (using my degrees). Spent the last year being a housewife, heading back to school for RD in the fall. I’m a bit nervous about being the old lady too!

2. Hot pepper peach preserves!

Kelly April 7, 2010 at 11:47 am

Right now I am on a guava jelly kick! It is so GOOD!

Lara (Thinspired) April 7, 2010 at 11:51 am

Dinner looks GOOD! And the man gives it two thumbs up…that’s important for me in assessing whether I’ll make a meal ;)

1. I got it over with straight out of high school, but then I screwed around in England for two years after that ;) I majored in PoliSci and minored in Art History. Uh, fun subjects, but not exactly career-driven!

2. Raspberry :) It’s the most universal. In my humble opinion.

Hillary April 7, 2010 at 12:45 pm

Question Time!
Yep, I’m going to college. Working on a BS in Food & Nutrition Communication at the moment. Finishing up year 3 and I’m quite burnt out.

I love love love apricot AND raspberry jam – my favorites by far. Although, homemade summer strawberries is tasty too!

Tamizn April 7, 2010 at 1:33 pm

Congrats on the course, I’m currently doing a home personal trainer course but I have something set up for a few months time but I will be revealing that on my blog nearer the time, fav jam cherry x x

Erica April 7, 2010 at 1:34 pm

Hey hey hey! Snow? oh my goodness! I need to make your protein bread- Josh and I would both love this. The apricot preserves make your oats look just gorgeous. That pasta looks out of this world. Artis rock.

1. Yes, I went to Penn State for Engineering
2. Blackberry baby

Hallie April 7, 2010 at 2:17 pm

Love the questions and the answers!

I went to college right after high school (Ithaca College in upstate NY) but now I’m going back (well, if I get in, which I should know soon) to get a master’s degree. I am a big nerd and I love school and learning, but I’m also really nervous about I’m going to juggle everything since i’m already super busy without school on top of it all!

I love family friends make low-sugar jam for me…so far I’ve gotten peach and blueberry. Peach was amazing but the boy ate it all!

Lauren April 7, 2010 at 2:19 pm

Wow-your samples from Costco are a lot healthier then mine! I can’t go in there hungry. I’ve been wanting to try one of those Simply Organic packets, but haven’t tried. Your pasta looks great though!

runeatrepeat April 7, 2010 at 2:48 pm

Ben can fall asleep on a plane after a venti Americano. I think that’s crazy.
Do you have the coffee cake recipe yet?

lizzyj1305 April 7, 2010 at 3:11 pm

hey lovely lady!
first off I am sooooo JEALous that you can fall asleep after drinking coffee…so jeal! haha! and that workout sounds BANGIN’ supa tough! I like it!
I am the biggest NERD in the world! I went straight off to college University of Washington! and got 2-bachelors degrees in those 4years i lived and swam in Seattle. Now I’m back in Cali going to school full time to get my master’s in nursing from USF!! (i can’t keep my head out of the books!)
BLACKBERRY JAM!! yummmay!
i heart you my powwow lova!
~xoxo!

Angharad April 7, 2010 at 3:16 pm

That dinner you made looks rad, miss thang. Skillz!!

1) I have a bachelors degree which I completed in normalmente time – you can’t defer and such with as much ease in England which is probably a good thing for me!
2) Raspberry too! Although we have this crazy stuff right now…hmm is it ligonberry? I can’t remember! But it is AWESOME.

hearts and besos xx

Heather April 7, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Dang girl how do you know all of these national food days? That’s rad. Your coffee cake looks delish and your workout rocked I’m sure!

Emily April 7, 2010 at 3:28 pm

that is a mighty fine-looking coffee cake.

1. my undergrad is in philosophy/philosophy of science. you can just imagine how incredibly relevant and useful that has been in my day to day life (I started out as a classics major, ie latin and ancient greek, another practical career path!). I actually overlapped my senior year of high school and freshman year of college. now I’m studying kinesiology and fitness.

2. um, just not grape? maybe strawberry rhubarb. I loved currant as a kid, but can’t remember the last time I had it. I don’t think I’ve ever had any, but fig jam sounds perrrfect. I may just have to experiment with that…

Errign April 7, 2010 at 3:31 pm

I have been in school since I graduated high school in 2006, but am just finishing my sophomore year. I have been full time this whole year, but it took me three years to get 33 credits ha! I went part time and took one semester off. I study International Relations woot woot!

Taysa (Water, Butter and Wine) April 7, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Ooo, those apricot oats look delicious. Thank you for reminding me of a fruit I’ve been neglecting.

I think there is nothing wrong with being indeciscive. I plowed my way through college and graduated with my B.A. in English when I was 20 years old. I studied English because it’s one of my passions, but I didn’t have a freaking clue what I really wanted back then, and five years later I still don’t have a clue. So now I’m taking classes that interest me through the community college, as well as studying for grad school exams in case I decide to do that. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by just how indecisive I am, so I try to slow down and just enjoy the ride.

Oh, and I love blackberry jam.

BroccoliHut April 7, 2010 at 3:45 pm

Ah man, Greek yog+coffee cake sounds like one heavenly combo!
1. I am in my senior year of college, with majors in English and psychology, and I’m going on to get a graduate degree in nutrition next year.
2. Favorite flavor of jam=blueberry, hands down.

Karla April 7, 2010 at 4:37 pm

Oooh lady you make me smile! I’ve still been reading, just not commenting as much since I’m ridiculously busy in life! But I thought I should throw it out there that I made coffee flavored cake (coffee cake literally) not so long ago and it’s all sorts of amazing!
In grad school now for City and Regional Planning. Undergrad I was a development studies major. Sometimes I think I’m going to be a perpetual student!

actorsdiet April 7, 2010 at 4:40 pm

i was a women’s studies music major. which i do so much with now, as an actor, obviously

LC @ Let Them Eat Lentils April 7, 2010 at 4:45 pm

I heart Mezzetta products. I just discovered them when I moved out to Cali (bc they’re everywhere here, obvs) and my latest discovery is their capers! Really good.

learningtocookeatandenjoydeliciousfood April 7, 2010 at 4:49 pm

I am currently in college. I started at a 4 years university, but because of needing treatment for an eating disorder, I am now I at a community college and I am about to start my junior year in the fall. I am planning on transfering to a 4 year university to continue studying to become an actuary!! :)

Katie April 7, 2010 at 4:56 pm

Haha, I think ANY cake is coffee cake because those are two of my favorite things on earth.

1. I went to school in Boulder, CO for English and Elementary Education. I went right after high-school, hated the college lifestyle, got engaged my senior year – and squeezed all my classes into 3.5 years because I just wanted to be done (and married)!! Glad I did it that way, I was ready to get outta there.

2. Ew, don’t like jam/preserves.

Kelly Olexa April 7, 2010 at 5:03 pm

I took my own sweet time with college. I started a quarter late, because I was late applying. Didn’t really know what I wanted to do….got literally about 90%of the way through and then decided to move to Florida to chase a boy. Lived there for a year, then moved back home and decided I wanted to go to law school!! Added another major and three minors….finally graduated and you know what? I have no regrets. I wasn’t ready to be working and focused at all. There are no rules in work and college and I commend you for listening to your “inner voice” or whatever you want to call it.
;-)

Jamie (BeautyandtheBeef) April 7, 2010 at 5:31 pm

I went to college straight from HS and studied dance and communication. I did it straight through and have been out for 6 years now I think…but I still miss college a lot, it was an awesome time.

Raspberry for me!

julie April 7, 2010 at 6:02 pm

i’m SO excited for you that you’re going back to school! my brother majored in accounting and i did finance and had some accounting classes so i’ll scrounge around the house to see if we have any leftover review books and what not if you want! just let me know ;)

i’m an el studento too! masters time in public admin and lovin it except i have a paper due friday at 5pm and i haven’t started it yet and yet i’m writing but i’m writing here on your comment page. fail. hahaha

sophia April 7, 2010 at 7:13 pm

27 is not so ripe. You’re so vivacious and energetic, you’ll pass off as 20 anyway! ;-)
Aw I miss Stef, too. I want her back!

inmytummy April 7, 2010 at 7:29 pm

I need to make that apple cake immediately. I have seriously thought about it during the day for no reason.

1. I went to college right after high school and finished in 4 years. I majored in Studio Art and minored in English.

2. Any berry flavor. Really anything but grape.

caronae April 7, 2010 at 7:58 pm

Oooo, I love q and a’s, therefore I love 2 question tuesday! fun :) As for school, awesome that you’re going back!!! Is it for a BA or an MA? I’m in my third year of college right now (almost fourth) and will graduate with a BA in history next May. Awesome.

Have a great Thursday, filled with lots more yummy eats like coffee cake! Oh, and I like mango butter, blackberry jam, cherry preserves, and pumpkin butter.

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) April 7, 2010 at 8:34 pm

Um, yes, I’ll have a piece of coffee cake (coffee flavored OF COURSE) with a side of coffee cake, topped with coffee cake crumbles and pureed coffee cake syrup on top. There, now I’m happy.

Wow, you ARE sorted with the remodel, with your connections! So did I ever tell you about the time we were remodeling and I decided that I’d had enough of the tile choosing process and laid down in the middle of the showroom floor? Yah, I was done. Good times. I sense you will follow in my footsteps on that one. No one should.

Love me some berry preserves (sugarfree of course)= just got some blueberry smuckers and with a name like smuckers it has to be good.

Yes, went to college, then took a year off where I worked in a large-sized shoe store where I sold shoes to tall black women and transvestites. Then I went to dental school. More good times.

Love you!!

whoops I meant that you WON”T follow in my footsteps by laying down in the middle of the showroom floor. (STATING THE OBVIOUS, as you’ve already chosen your tile. We had a few rooms to choose for- it was sheer hell)

You always make the most interesting and yummy-looking meals and they really don’t seem to take long to prepare. I need to get my A into G and start cooking some different stuff! I get lots of great ideas from your blog. :)

While I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new articles are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails sticking with the same comment. Perhaps there is any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

Hmmm, Margy I just looked around and can’t see a place where I can remove you from the comment subscription notification. In the email you get with the comment, is there a link to unsubscribe to the notifications on your end? I am so sorry, I can’t figure it out!
