It’s my office annual Halloween party and my costume is going to kick ass!  You’ll just have to come back tomorrow night for the pictures! 😀

It’s the end of the week, I didn’t do a full grocery shop this week, so it was my yogurt/granola/apple combo – but I added a tablespoon of peanut butter for dipping for extra protein and calories.


I picked up this jar of peanut butter at Big Lots – it was only $1.80!


I had some last minute errands to run at lunch so I went to my favorite place – Panera’s Broccoli Cheddar Soup!  While I make a mean copy cat recipe – there is nothing like the real thing!


When Hannah and I were in Oak Park over the weekend, we drove by Long John Silver’s.  I am happy to say that there are none around me – but Hannah and I started talking about chicken planks and hush puppies.  Then I had an idea of making zucchini cheese fritters! 

Biz’s Zucchini Cheese Fritters

  • 2 cups shredded zucchini – squeezed to remove all water
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheese (I used my grated cheese ends)
  • 1/2 cup bisquick

I cooked this in our deep fryer for about 3-4 minutes.  While I know deep frying isn’t the healthiest route, I like that it holds a temperature so the outside sears before the oil soaks in.  Each one comes in at about 50 calories and 4 grams of fat.



This was just half of the batter!  And while I was skeptical because my batter was really loose, they turned out crunch on the outside, yet tender and fluffy on the inside.  I sprinkled with coarse salt once they came out – see – there is hardly any oil on the paper towel!



I made patty melts on the side – Tony’s was on rye bread:




Mine was 4 ounces of burger, 1/2 ounce provolone, 1 arnold thin, dill pickles (LOTS of mustard added at the table! 😀 ) and 4 fritters.
