Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

What happens when it’s Friday night and you don’t feel like cooking, ordering pizza or going out and a bowl of cereal just won’t cut it? In our house when that happens we head straight to the garage and to the freezer.  There is where I try to keep microwavable meals and snacks specifically for those occasions and last Friday night it was Lean Pockets Pretzel Bread Sandwiches.

I am not a big proponent of frozen meals & snacks because of the excessive sodium some of them contain but these Lean Pockets brand sandwiches are only 250 calories with 650 mg of sodium which isn’t a lot compared to others that contain well over 1000 mg of sodium.

The Lean Pockets Sandwiches were filled with Spinach and 3  Cheeses, Fontina, Romano and reduced Fat Mozzarella.  I zapped one in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds in the crisping sleeve then cut it in half.  It didn’t seem like it had a lot of filling and could have had more spinach, but to my surprise it was quite good and hit the spot. The soft pretzel bread encased a flavorful mix of spinach and cheeses that paired well with my glass of Friday night wine!

Speaking of wine, I want to reintroduce my “play cousin” Cook E doe Face.  She is a down to earth YouTube Vlogger who will have you in stitches as you watch her create some delicious dishes and “knock you on your butt cocktails”.

Cook E de Face is from Philly and I fell in love with her atty-tud (Philly slang) from the very first video I watched.  In today’s world it is so easy to get caught up in the negativity but you know me, I like to keep it light.  Cook E doe Face has me laughing out loud and reminds me of my own New York cousins.  If it were left up to me she would definitely have a show on the Food or OWN Network!

Check out this recipe for Flatline Cocktail.

 

Have a fantastical day – Smooches!

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!

A few weeks ago at The Java House Cafe I had the pleasure of meeting Marissa G., owner/baker of Eden’s Touch Bread Company.  She was there to feature her Specialty Loaves of Homemade Breads, “made with love, no chemicals or preservatives”.  Eden’s Touch Bread Company delivers fresh baked products at affordable prices and delivers exceptional customer satisfaction.  The bakery is located in Collingdale, PA, however, they ship nationwide as well as make local deliveries to the Philadelphia tri-state area.  Eden’s Touch Bread Company also features other items including Gluten Free Gourmet Butter, Croutons and Bread Mixes (menu).

I purchased two of the mini Banana Walnut loaves and couldn’t wait to get them home to try.  I had one warm slice with my afternoon tea and then my men ate the rest!  I wished I had purchased others to hide store in the freezer, I’ll place an online order.
