Oh happy Friday my loves!

♥ ♥ ♥

I love Fridays a lot now. Mainly because I don’t work! I love having the extra day off, and since Matt typically goes into work (even though he technically has Friday’s off too) it’s my one day to myself. I love spending time with Matt, don’t get me wrong, but I also love having that one day alone to just relax. I would love to claim that I get things done around the house, but I’ll be honest, I’m pretty lazy and don’t get much accomplished.

Another fun Friday activity of course is the lovely Laura’s #strangebutgood link up.

Sprint 2 the Table

I actually think I find more inspiration from “strange” recipes than “normal” recipes. What can I say, I like weird food combinations.

I actually have two creations I want to share with you. Both of which I can’t take full credit for, but both totally worth sharing.

First I have to share Lori and Michelle’s plantain bread.

As soon as I saw them post this, I knew it was something I had to try.

I of course made my own version with the flavorings and toppings, but the idea is totally there’s and totally amazing.

Protein Plantain Bread

(based on this recipe from Purely Twins)

Ingredients:

– 1 medium plantain (7-8oz)

– 1/2 cup egg whites

– 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Plant Fusion vanilla bean)

– 1 tbsp coconut oil

Directions:

– Blend all ingredients in a blender or magic bullet.

– Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

I of course went the sweet route with toppings and made a little protein pizza.

I really didn’t know what to expect from this, and I think next time I’ll let mine cook a little bit longer, but overall I was so happy with how this turned out. Let’s be real, we know this girl loves her carbs! I will be making this again.

Another #strangebutgood happening is nothing new in Debbie-land, or to you guys who read the blog regularly or follow me on Instagram.

More squash.

More random toppings.

I got about 6-8 acorn squash when I went to the Market on the Move, so I have been trying to use it up.

I pre-roasted a few and on a lazy day I just topped it with some protein whipped cottage cheese and peanut flour drizzle then sprinkled with my Trader Joe’s Coffee and Sugar grinder.

Amazing-ness in a bowl.

On a not so lazy day I made a cake in a squash.

I know, I’m obsessed with protein frosting, I swear I put it on everything.

It’s not my fault Plant Fusion makes the best protein frosting, and peanut flour sauce is just too good and easy to pass up.

Chocolate+ Peanut Butter = always a win.

Since I have the weekend off, maybe I’ll get creative with the rest of my squash.

You will all just have to come back and see what I come up with.

But until then, have a great weekend everyone!

Stay strange.
