Last night was aaaaa-mazing! We went to a big band/jazz/blues show at Le Poisson Rouge and half of the people were dressed up in their Prohibition finest. The band was amazing, the burlesque dancer was hot, we danced and altogether had a perfect evening (all this after dinner with friends at one of those pan-Asian places)
I promised Boyfriend "unhealthy" blueberry pancakes this morning since they're one of his favorites, but I was planning on keeping it healthy for myself....so two batches. His batch, her batch.
+ frozen blueberries
Mine (hers!) were oatmeal pancakes. Ingredients: baking soda (1tsp), egg white (of 1 egg), old fashioned oats (1/3 cup), splash of almond extract and the frozen blueberries. At the end I added 1 heaping tsp full of part-skim ricotta cheese because I thought it looked a little dry. Also, one packet of sweeter (Sweet N Lo for me!).
On the right, the unflipped version of his (this is about the right ratio of blueberries)
All told: 100 calories for the oatmeal, no more than 40-50 calories for the egg white, maybe another 50 for the ricotta, possibly 20? for the blueberries?
This was a 220 calorie piece of morning heaven. Ok, I put a bunch of reduced sugar maple syrup on it. Put on another 50 calories.
His were good too, but I actually preferred the bready/doughy chewier texture of mine.
After our run, I figured we earned ourselves a trip to the OysterBash. Yes, we are heading all the way out to queens to enjoy oysters, alcohol and....oysters! Raw, fried, Rockefeller (what IS that?). Stay tuned for reviews.
