Breakfast for Dinner!

Ok, so I lied just a little bit. I did not serve the frozen hot chocolate at this month's party...I served this instead:

What is that? It is a Click Frappucino and it's yuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmeeeeeeee....

Ok, so you weren't at the party. Cuz maybe you live too far away or maybe the warm day drew you outside. There really is no excuse but I will give you the recipe anyways.

Click Frappucino

8 oz. skim milk, 2 scoops Click protein, 1/2 scoop Body Fortress vanilla whey, 1 oz. Torani sugar free hazelnut syrup, 1 tbsp Splenda, 6 ice cubes.

Directions: Put it in a blender and whiz it. Top with whipped cream...sip...die...go to heaven...

This drink was VERY well received. So much so that my guests requested that I make a second drink later in the evening. "This does not taste like a protein shake at all," sayeth Lee, my faithful gym buddy and Pouch Party loyalist.

So the other one I do not have a pic of...but pics of protein shakes aren't that interesting. I'll just tell you about it. I call it a "protein mudslide."

Ingredients: 8 oz. skim milk, 1 scoop Body Fortress cookies 'n creme whey, 1 tbsp sugar free chocolate pudding mix, 1 tbsp Splenda, 1 oz. Davinci sugar free kahlua syrup.

Directions: put it in a blender and whiz it...pour in festive with whipped cream...mistakenly think you are at Applebees and wonder why nobody is bussing your table.

Moving right along...

So next we learned to make breakfast sausage. I got a few raised eyebrows on this one. I mean, why make breakfast sausage when Mr. Dean makes them so well? Well...because with homemade you get to control what goes in it AND how big your sausage patties are. Plus it's cool to say you made your own breakfast sausage. All this was toward the pursuit of making one of the most popular breakfast things that I make. The "Egg NikMuffin." We don't need no stinking arches ;-)
Ok, so my girl Shelly (a.k.a. Eggface) makes these little crustless quiches that she calls bites. I had to demo the bites because they are goooooooooooood. So we did three kinds: Maryland bites (crab meat and Old Bay...keepin' it simple), Bacon/cheese bites, and ham/cheese bites (both with onions and green pepper in them). I wanted mushrooms in the ham/cheese bite but I got vetoed. I hate when that happens. Anyway...above is Renae mixing up her Maryland bites.

And here is a picture of the Bacon/cheese and ham/cheese bites. The Maryland didn't make it...

These are very yummy and ridiculously low cal. Check out more bite recipes on Eggface's super duper blog!

So anyone who has been to a Pouch Party thus far knows I'm all about giving away free stuff. This month's goodie bag featured the following (starting at 6 o'clock and going clockwise):

So that's that! My guests chose as the next party theme Mexican Fiesta! The party will be the last Saturday in May (and I'm too lazy to look the date up, ok????)


  1. VERY cool nik! Wish I was there to sip fraps and leave with a goody bag!


  2. That was awesome! I should come to a party. I live in Southern Maryland. I'm a couple hours south of Baltimore.
