Subway Churros and French Toast

All I can say is holy crap am I sore! I did workout B of Bootcamp, which consists full body supersets, with my new weights and let me tell you, the small increase in weight makes a world of a difference.

When I did the workout last week, I felt it was a little too easy with the weights I was using and I barely broke a sweat. What a difference a week makes.

But before that workout and sweatiness ever happened, I ate a churro. If you’ve never had a churro, they are deep fried dough covered in cinnamon sugar and very popular in Latin American countries. Tommy’s neighbor actually stopped us yesterday and told us in Argentina, where he is from, they make churros filled with caramel and chocolate. Can you say heaven?

Tommy bought the churros on his way home from work in the subway station. There isn’t a store that sells them or anything like that, just a nice man with a grocery cart full of churros. I was always a little hesitant to try them, but a few months back Tommy and I gave them a shot and they are some of the best churros I have ever tried. So if you are ever on the L train and see a man with churros, try em! And they’re only two for a dollar, so even if you don’t like it, its not much of a loss.

With the churros still on my mind, I decided to make French Toast for breakfast today. I love all things cinnamon!

I topped off the French Toast with a mix of plain Greek yogurt and peanut butter and drizzled some maple syrup on top. I inhaled this, it was so good.

On the agenda for today, is a trip to the park with Munchkin, followed by a trip to the supermarket to pick up some veggies for a new recipe I’m trying out today. It’s my first try at cooking with wheat berries, so wish me luck!

Have an awesome Friday! TGIF!

Where’s the most random place you’ve found some good eats?

    Churros are amazing! I used to work at a theme park, and we wold them, and we would get to eat them all at the end of the day. Yum!

  2. Yum! I love churros! I went to a random gas station that had the best (home made by the manager) pralines! I could have eaten a huge bacg of them.

  3. Churros are SO good!! :)

  4. Oh man. Foods from little carts and stands are always the best. I miss that about the Dominican Republic. There was an empanada cart literally right in from of my apartent!

      There was an empanada cart outside my friend's school when we were in college. Just a little lady with a push cart of empanadas, but they were probably the best empanadas I had in my life. If they were in front of my house, I probably wouldn't fit through the door!

    I love Churros! The first time I ever had one was last year at El Vez in center city, Philly! It was so good!
