Thirsty Thursday: Grilled Peach Frappe

So my new thing is to play the Watch What Happens Live drinking game on Thursday nights with my parents (the friends are few and far between now that I’ve moved home, sooo…) My drink of the night is the Grilled Peach Frappe from my mom’s “Better Homes and Gardens” magazine that I skim through in the bathroom.

Grilled Peach Frappe
2 peaches, halved
3 or 4 or 5 ounces (depending on your desired buzz level) of Southern Comfort
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 a tsp vanilla
2 tsp (or to taste) stevia or sugar
1.5 cups of ice

First, cut the peaches in half and preheat your grill. Reduce the heat to medium and put the peaches face down on the grill (cover of the grill down). After 4-5 minutes rotate the peaches a quarter turn (I guess it makes it taste better) and grill for another 4-5 minutes.

Take the skin off the peaches (with a peeler if necessary) and then throw it in the blender with all the other ingredients except for the ice.

Blend for 20 seconds and then add ice and then blend more until smooth. Serve in chilled glasses immediately.

Serves 4. (Or whatever… I just drank a whole pitcher myself). 150 calories (so it’s pretty guilt free unless you drink a whole pitcher..but it’s extra fiber, so who cares)

Peanut Butter and Banana Wontons

I had to blog about this because I’m positively smug over what I made for lunch today. Peanut butter and banana wontons! The lunch of champions and/or someone with a lot of time on their hands.

This all started when I made some homemade crab rangoon a few nights ago, and now I just want to put everything into a wonton wrapper. Hide yo’ kids hide yo’ wife, I’m gonna put them in a wonton wrapper!

PB&B Wontons
Nasoya Wonton Wrappers
Peanut Butter
Banana
Cinnamon
Stevia
Pam Spray

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Follow the pictures (you don’t even need to be literate to follow this recipe- I’ve covered all bases).

Wet your finger and seal the edges shut every time you fold.

Fold up the other side, then spray both sides of the wontons (and the cooking sheet) with Pam. Sprinkle cinnamon and stevia on the wontons. Put them in the oven for 10 minutes (or until brown) and flip them over at about 4 or 5 minutes.
