It is officially my Spring Break now!  Which means a week of serious Spring cleaning, cooking like mad, and running has just begun!  See, I finally hit the 10 pounds lost mark this week and it rejuvenated my motivation to get rid of as much of these last 30ish pounds as I can before my dear friend Maryam’s wedding this May!

You know what doesn’t help you lose weight?  Hollandaise sauce.  I thought it would go perfectly with these bites…and it does….but you know how some things are just ruined when you figure out how they’re made?  I had never made a hollandaise sauce before.  I knew it wasn’t a healthy sauce, but did you know that the primary ingredient is butter?  I will most likely still order it at restaurants on occasion (I can’t give up the Egg & I’s Cambridge Skillet forever!), but I don’t think I’ll be making it at home anymore.

But the quinoa bites?  I’ll definitely be making them again.  I love that these little guys let me incorporate ham, chicken, and cheese, but still keep the calorie count pretty low.  And I love that I can have all of the flavors of chicken cordon bleu without having to flatten and stuff a chicken breast!

Now, I’m off to throw the 70 billionth load of laundry in the washer and cook corned beef and cabbage hash to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day appropriately.  😉
