Day 12 & 13 of 120 & Cleaner Chess Pie

What a weekend! Between birthday dinners, weddings, our car puking out, and everything in between I did not take the time to blog for days 12 and 13. Day 12’s scheduled workout was Pump and Burn and Day 13 was a rest day. Granted I think for my rest day I got plenty of cardio in. Gotta love the dance floor.

My food intake was not so great. On Friday when my DH and I went to dinner for his birthday I ordered what I thought would be the cleanest thing on the menu. To my surprise the only thing I should have eaten was the side salad. EVERYTHING was processed. The meal that I ordered didn’t even come out, because they gave me the wrong meal. It happens, I understand. I was kind of wondering why anyone works in their kitchen if no one cooks anything. So I ended up eating instant potatoes and white bread.
Saturday I ate a slice of pizza at lunch leftover from when my friend watched the kids friday. Because I was in a hurry and didn’t want to take the extra 5 minutes to make something. Really should have made a better choice there. At the wedding I had one fried chicken drumstick, peeled off the skin but still. It was fried and also some dressing and a small slice of cake. I had tons of veggies though. And let’s not get started with my beer consumption. How much beer did I drink? I don’t know. So yep, I totally sucked at making good choices this weekend. Do I regret it? YES! Am I going to beat myself up or punish myself for it? NO! Just going to hop back on the wagon and chug along.

So I never took a picture of the Cleaned Up (not 100% clean) Chess Pie I made with my DD. I will at least get the recipe out there and use a generic picture of some to kind of give you an idea what it looks like.

Chocolate Chess Pie. Photo from HandletheHeat.com There are some awesome meals and sinful treats on this site! My pie looked the same minus I finger pressed the edges of my crust

Ingredients:

FILLING:
2 Large Eggs, beaten
(1) 5 Ounce Can of Organic Fat Free Evaporated Milk
1 Cup Stevia in the raw
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/4 Cup Organic Butter, melted
2 Tablespoons Cornmeal
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
CRUST:
2 Cups Unbleached White Wheat Flour
1 Cup organic Butter, very cold
6-8 Tablespoons of Ice Water
2 Teaspoons Stevia in the Raw
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Directions:
1. Crust: In a food processor add the flour, Stevia and salt and mix it well. Cut the butter into pea sized pieces and add to flour mixture.  Mix until it is crumbly. There may still be little chunks of butter and that is okay.

2. Add water one tablespoon at a time then pulse. Do this until your dough is still crumbly but can hold together if you squeeze a little bit in your hand.
3. Take your dough and with as little handling as possible ball it up and then roll it out  to fit your pie pan. After it is in your pan cover your edges with foil and pop into the fridge.

1. Filling: mix together the Stevia, brown sugar, corn meal and cocoa powder. Add in the eggs and then mix until it is all completely mixed together. Then add in your evaporated mils, butter and vanilla.
2. Pour filling into your pie crust. It will be very runny and that is okay! Be sure your foil edges are not touching the filling!!
3. Place into your preheated oven and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. Your pie will rise and then fall and crack a little on top as it cool. That is normal and just what Chess Pie does.

Arrrrgh! Day 11 of 120 Finished.

Happy Talk like a Pirate Day! I seriously thought about doing this entire post in pirate speak. Just because I can and I would find it to be very amusing.

So today was Day 11 and Flow was the scheduled workout for the day. That is finished, it went well. I almost biffed it once and that was it. Not to shabby! The only frustrating things is some of the poses literally make my fat rolls pinch me and my big freaking chest get in the way.  At least those are issues that will improve over time. So no need to worry about it. I have to pick my battles.

Along with it being Talk Like a Pirate Day it is Pat’s birthday. Emma choose for us to make him the Chocolate Chess Pie I mentioned in yesterday’s blog (here). I am not allowed to cut into it. Emma said that I can’t touch it until after her and her dad have dessert together.  So the pic and recipe will have to happen either tonight or tomorrow. The dinner she chose for the evening is creamy chicken enchiladas. I have never made them before and literally eaten them twice in my life. When I make enchiladas I make them authentic. After looking up a recipe I saw that they are basically made up of a bunch of processed food thrown together. I went and bought everything I could to make them as clean as possible.

So for dinner I will not be eating exactly 100% clean but it is a birthday and my DD really wanted to make these things for him. I will be okay with 80% clean. After dinner I am attending a wine walk. The wine will of course not be clean. I don’t care. I haven’t had a glass of wine in forever it seems. So I will have 16 samples tonight on the walk. If I am walking while drinking wine does it count as exercise??
