No recipe last night: left-over falafel (mmmm...) and a rushed evening of children activity AND bday shopping. My nephew Fin is 2 today! ( Happy Birthday, Fin! You cutie, you.) My dh has a bday on Monday ( should I bake a light cake? The man is crazy for angel food cake...I'd have to buy that angel food cake pan. hmmmm...) and eldest dd has a bday party on Saturday. At least there's no cake temptation for me on the Saturday party- unless I crash it or something. dd is now getting to the age of extreme parental embarrassment, so I don't think she'd approve.
Anyway, due to no recipe shareage AND no exercise shareage (still feeling crappy with flu-like symptoms), I thought I'd share my favourite ZERO point- yes, zero point, fruit: the Asian Pear. I bought some at Costco last night- amidst all the bday shopping. They are kind of pricey, but well worth it- for the occasional splurge anyway. They even come in their own little plastic suitcase, tenderly wrapped in cushy material. Very adorable overall, I say.
If you haven't had one before, it's kind of like eating crunchy water with a tiny tinge of flavour. Hard to describe the flavour actually- not really pear like or apple like. Kind of unique.
Anyway, I love them for when I'm feeling hungry, but I've already used up my points and some flex for the day, say, on bday cake or something. Good job I have them on hand this week, eh?
