If this doesn’t get your mouth watering and your stomach grumbling, then I don’t know what will. New York Pizza-Cypress style! Friday night pizza and a movie has been a tradition in my family ever since I can remember. Normally I pass on the pizza and make myself a healthified pita pizza or something Italian to partake in the garlic feast, but tonight I just couldn’t resist. I figured I deserved it after a long day of studying, right?
These pics are from Google but our New York pizza from a new local joint was just as tasty-looking. I don’t want to think about the nutritional information, but hey I’ve satisfied the pizza-shaped hole in my stomach now.
To finish off my chocolate Friday, I had a major craving for cookie dough. I don’t like to give into cravings, but I decided to let loose tonight.
Salted Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe to come soon)
they were TO DIE FOR. There’s something about mixing sweet and salty. I like to take recipes and make a healthier version, but sometimes you just have to live. Atleast these have dark chocolate, packed with antioxidants. And I used a cup of whole wheat flour-gotta incorporate the whole grains in there. I took the butter down a notch and substituted with some canola oil. Basically, I had to talk myself out of eating all of the cookie dough and eventually had to make a conscious choice to walk away from the warm, gooey, beautiful cookies. After I ate about 5. They were really awesome soaked in milk.
I think it’s safe to say that I’ve stocked up on chocolate until next Friday, especially after having a bowl of Special K Chocolatey Delights cereal for a snack after the gym! Not protein-packed, but it did good to raise my blood sugar.
Now that I’m entering a food coma, it’s time for me to lay down, unbutton my pants and try to catch my breath as I fall asleep!
