More Stupid-Simple Snacks and Recipes

Have you ever had a stupid-busy week? These kinds of weeks call for stupid simple meals that satisfy. Lately my sweet tooth has been ragin’ so I like to indulge with plenty of apples, banana soft serve and the occasional treat (see below what I splurged on this week).

These are just a collection of what I’ve been eating over the past week.

Egg Sandwich from Dolce Delight: Egg, Cheddar, Tomato, Guacamole & Kale with an Iced Red Eye

Apple Crisp with Cinnamon Ice Cream and Caramel from Apple Fest

Apple Fest is an annual celebration of all things apple. I know. It’s basically Christmas. I didn’t spend enough time there this weekend because of work, but I did get my hands on this sucker after waiting in an line for over 20 minutes. So. Worth. It.
What I Ate Wednesday Banana Soft Serve (frozen banana with almond milk in food processor) with Coconut
What I Ate Wednesday Soy Iced Latte from Ithaca Coffee Company

This is one of the best iced lattes I’ve ever had. ICC serves up some seriously rich and delicious espresso. Lucky for me I’m spoiled for great coffee here in Ithaca. What I Ate Wednesday Banana Cherry Soft Serve

Your Turn:

  • Do you ever suffer from a sweet tooth?
  • If so how do you indulge or divert?
  • Are you still drinking iced coffee?

    Sweet tooth to the max :) I would definitely survive on ice cream if I could. With coffee I try to alternate, hot and cold. It’s a great combination :)
