Baking & Chick-fil-A

Happy Friday!! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. What are you up to this weekend??

After finishing up work today, I got a little busy in the kitchen and made an adjusted loaf of my Vegan Multigrain Bread. I am still working on perfecting this and will post an updated recipe once I do:

I also made up a batch of granola to bring to my Dad tomorrow (we’re headed to my parents for a BBQ!):

P1080818 

Then, it was off to Chick-fil-A, so that the husband could try (for free!!) the new Spicy Chicken Sandwich. I heard lots of good things about the new addition to the menu, and I knew the husband would love it.  I nibbled before we went (knowing that chick-fil-a isn’t known for their vegetarian selections ;)). I did get a side salad with honey mustard dressing:

and one of their new cookie crumb parfaits (very yum, but not Charleston’s Cafe yum ;)):

Josh really enjoyed it! Best part of dinner? We met up with Lindsay and P!!! They swung by our house afterwards to meet the Frankster too.

So excited for the rest of the weekend. I think I will do a bit more baking tonight. Tomorrow, I am teaching Body Step, hopefully going to the IoP beach to see the sandcastle building contest and off to a BBQ at my parents house. Sunday is open! Cannot wait.

Oh wow, he got the deluxe sandwich! I got my free spicy chicken sandwich for lunch today and omg, it is life changing. So tasty!! I also love their side salads and that honey mustard. I haven't tried those new little parfaits. CFA is the only fast food place that I just LOVE! For some reason it's the only one that doesn't make me feel guilty for eating there.

I have never tried that parfait before.

Have a great weekend!!

I'm super impressed with chic fil a's salads. They're way more than the iceberg lettuce and grape tomatoes you get at any other fast food restaurant.

Enjoy your weekend! BBQs are a blast.

I can't wait to try that new addition from Chick-fil-a. The bread looks wonderful.

Have a great weekend!

I didn't know Chick-Fil-A had that cookie crumb thing!! Looks delish.
A sandcastle building contest sounds awesome. Take photos for us! :)

Stacey said...

Cookie crumb parfait, that sounds good. :)

Thanks for meeting up with us. We had a blast. We loved Frank! I can't wait to try your bread tomorrow morning. It looks delish!

Nicole Carrillo said...

I'm pretty excited for you to post the bread recipe, good luck on perfecting it! (although it already looks pretty stinkin' delicioso)

Have a great bbq weekend, enjoy your granola (:

Jessica @ How Sweet said...

A sandcastle contest sounds so cool. Since I've never lived by water I've always been so intrigued by them!

ktbwood said...

Kelsey said...

ellie said...

I've heard great things about Chick-fil-A! I am surprised they don't offer veggie option...though perfect reason for a parfait (which looks amazing!)

Have a great weekend at he BBQ!

therabbitrunner said...

that bread looks great but im sure your tweaking will make it even better!!
oh man..i wish I lived near a chick fil a...their fries are so good!

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Bread seems like it is always the hardest thing to get completely right--but I can't wait till you share the recipe! We actually don't have any Chick-fil-A's around here, but even if we did, I probably wouldn't go often. That parfait looks delish though!

Stephanie @cookinfanatic said...

chick fil a ice cream is my weakness (well and mcdonalds haha) i love that stuff! have a great weekend enjoying the beach/bbq!

Krista said...

There's the bread!! I made mine with molassess this time and it's still great! Mom and I were thinking that black olives, roasted red peppers and feta would be great additions! Can't wait to see how you tweeked it. Have fun at the beach!

Julie said...

your pops is one lucky man to be getting a batch of your nola!

perhaps luckier then josh who scored a free sammie at chic fil a? even though i dont even think we have those around here i'm happy for him he got his fill...a. hahahhaa sorry i had to

anyways have a great weekend girl :) and get your c-town parfait on!!1

Melissa @ For the Love of Health said...

The bread looks amazing!!
I finally went to Body Pump yesterday- for the first time in awhile! It felt wonderful! :-)
I bet you're awesome in person just based on the fact that you are an instructor because every instructor I have come across is friendly and just an all around good person.

She-Fit said...

YUM! I love Chick-Fil-A... been wanting to try the spicy sandwich. Might have to do that today

vanillasugar said...

never been to a chick a whatever. we don't have them and to be honest that sandwich looks kind of lacking LOL. salad looked better though.
i'd rather have the granola.

Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) said...

That cookie crumb parfait looks awesome!

Your weekend sounds like it's going to be awesome! The sandcastle building contest sounds like so much fun! Have a great time!

Dawn Dishes It Out said...

I am going to have to get to the Charleston Cafe during my travels!! Everything looks so delicious. I've missed reading your blog!! Hope things are great!!!

Heatha said...

That bread looks great! You're so cute with your love of parfaits....

teresa said...

chick-fil-A is a new thing that we didn't get in the west, so far we really like it. your weekend sounds wonderful, enjoy!

BroccoliHut said...

That bread looks great! Can't wait for the recipe.
Chick-fil-A is definitely not a good place for vegetarians...but their waffle fries are amazing!

Diana @ frontyardfoodie said...

My husband LOVES Chick-Fil-A! I do always have a bit of trouble finding stuff there whenever I happen to be with him on a stop. Still, their side salads are super fresh!

Sarah said...

Oreo cookie parfait looks yum :) I think you've inspired me to get some frozen yogurt to go with dinner tonight :)

Simply Life said...

wow what great food!

Janetha said...

parfaits always make me think of you, parfait queen! that one definitely doesn't live up to your granny smith regular. the bread and granola both look awesome! i love good, hearty bread like that.
