Yes - in fact, I think Yoplait's is called "Key Lime Pie" and it's delicious!


Breakfast - raisin bran and coffee

Lunch - Tuna with lemon and capers on whole wheat bread, honey crisp apple

Dinner - Probably chicken something or other

We have Yoplait over here too, but no Key Lime Pie unfortunately.  :(


And that sandwich sounds truly delicious Marie, hmmmm. But what is a honey crisp apple?  ???

I l-o-o-o-v-e Brussels sprouts. ...

Especially tasty when cooked in beer...bu then again what isn't?

I'm slowly starting to appreciate Brussels sprouts. They're not my favorite vegetable though, I prefer green cabage. I would normally boil Brussels  sprouts (all dente) and then saute them in butter, maybe add a little bacon. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

I've never heard of them cooked in beer. How do you do that? Just like you would make a beef stew with beer? Do you use strong dark (like a trappist) beer?

I'm taking notes here.  :)

That sounds positively yummy!  :D  Especially the part about the butter and the bacon. ...  ::)

Can I say what we had for supper last night (just 'cause for once, I made something sort of from scratch that turned out pretty damn good)?

We had chicken fajitas.  I made them with chicken tenderloins.  I heated the frying pan with olive oil and grilled some chopped up onions first, then I put a little bit of Italian dressing in the pan and sauteed the chicken for about 20 minutes, covered, so it would also cook in the steam.  I used whole wheat wraps instead of tortillas, and fresh (but store-prepared) guacamole.  I also cut up some tomatoes and green peppers and shredded some lettuce to put in them.  And I made some Spanish rice "Rica-A-Roni" for further filling.

O-M-G, they were yumbola if I do say so myself.  My six-year-old even loved them.  I mixed sour cream with the guacamole and sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese on mine.

No more beans!

Oh, they're delicious, Fabienne!  Here's an article about them and a picture (the picture accompanying the article is not very accurate, I don't think):

I enjoy it in veggie stir-frys myself.
