Well hello there, friends!
It is like Celebrity Fit Club over here at Chez Morrell/Dunn-Rankin. CDR and I are trying to get ourselves in shape and so have been working out daily and watching what we eat. The majority of my extended family are on a similar path, so for cousin Mikey’s birthday, I made some low-calorie cupcakes.
TWO INGREDIENT CUPCAKES.
Yup. You read right.
All you need is a box of cake mix and 15oz can of pureed pumpkin. THAT IS ALL YOU NEED, FOR SERIOUS.
Mix and bake.
For a glaze for these yummy pumpkin spice cupcakes, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with the juice of 1 lemon.
Now, if you live in Chicago, or the mid-west for that matter, you know how flippin’ cold it has been. We awoke to a cozy -11 degrees this morning, and CDR suggested we do something BBQ themed to warm our bones. I was totally down, and we made sure to do an intense to work out before dinner.
We picked up a sirloin tip roast and did something mighty fine to it.
We also made roasted potatoes, and a broccoli slaw with a lemon-dijon vinaigrette. See:
And when the timer goes off…
Get your plate ready…
And that’s dinner.
Stay tuned for the Weekly Cocktail tomorrow.
