This weekend was case and point. I'm especially "naughty" when some plans I have made fall through and I"m left with nothing to do and no more excuses to avoid getting some real work done. Sooo this weekend I was supposed to go to New Haven with some friends when one of them canceled. Instead I spent the afternoon burning some big holes in my credit cards in an outdoor shopping center in Westport. The shopping IS good here...
I did get some good steals though. But now I"m cut off :)
I chose to be a little more "frivolous" with my weekend breakfast routine too. Seeing as I actually slept long enough for my breakfast to be considered "lunch" I thought "why not go down to Chocopologie and see how their breakfast is?" It really is dangerous to live around so many tasty restaurants.

For my entire breakfast I sat at a seat that looks in on the kitchen. The restaurant specializes in chocolate truffles. Had to stare at this poor little forgotten guy the whole time I was there. Someone pick him up and eat him!!
But I did redeem myself somewhat this evening by doing about 15 minutes of work and spending an hour cooking a wholesome meal that didn't cost me a cent. It was so easy I practically cooked the entire meal while on the phone with my dad. But..I caution..never eat this much fiber in one sitting...I'm now handicapped on the couch with a tummy ache.

That really is a lot of food...and I had an apple for dessert..bad idea...
I do have to mention one food breakthrough though. I have been meaning to post about this discovery for a while as when I posted the picture below on Pinterest it practically went viral in 15 minutes.
The obsession continues! Panko Breaded Baked Potato Fries!
1. Chop potato into fry shapes
2. Dip in bowl of egg white
3. Roll in bowl of panko + seasoning of choice
4. Bake to perfection in 20 minutes depending on how you like them.
The egg really helps the panko and seasoning stick and make for even crispier "fries"!
Happy Sunday Funday and frivolous distractions :)
