• After the Bake-Off

    April 12, 2010

    Once the Pillsbury Bake-Off® ended, it was time for lunch. I sampled so many of the recipes at the Bake-Off, eating a full meal was just not appetizing to me. But, because I mostly indulged in desserts, I figured having some “real food” would probably do me some good.

    I checked out the spread at the lunch buffet, but I just wasn’t in the mood to eat. :-?

    But, the dessert display eventually changed my mind! ;-)

    I ended up eating a small bowl of Roasted Butternut Squash & Apple Soup and a tiny chocolate mousse pastry. Obviously, it was a Lunch of Champions! ;-)

    After lunch, the blogger crew headed outside to enjoy the sunshine.

    It felt GREAT to be outside! 8-)

    I enjoyed a fruity glass of white sangria while sitting by the pool.

    Hahaha I love how it was the dessert spread that motivated you to eat real food for lunch, even after those samples. I <3 your sweet tooth because mine is just as craaaaazy.

    You better tell us you slid down that slide!! :P What a lovely looking chocolate dessert – it’s always impressive to me when desserts made in large quantities actually taste good! I’ve had so many disappointing buffet desserts… but I guess Pillsbury knows what it’s doing! ;)

    Oh goodness- that dessert display would have sealed the deal with me! Babies and organic eggs totally make the cutest scene!

    I’m with you: Sometimes the best meals revolve around dessert. And that one looks delicious!

    I’d probably have hit the dessert too if I didn’t have a lot of space for food. When we’re somewhere that dessert is being served, or a great dessert menu is on the table, i make sure I save room!
