Hope everyone had a good day today!
It was pouring rain here all day so there was no walk for Beasley. Just lots of indoor playing
I ended up having a wonderful snack last night.
I rolled it up and baked it in the oven at 400F for 15 minutes.
And topped it with the last of the coconut icecream that would not stay on the nanner.
The wrap flaked up like pasty and the banana was all smushy with the chocolate and almond butter.
It was GREAT.
Breakfast this morning was so so so phenomenal. x 10.
I followed her recipe exactly except I added about 1/2 tbsp more of almond milk and I defrosted some strawberries to put on top.
They are actually really mini but they kept me full for 5 hours!!
And because I like to copy everything Janetha does a day later lol, we celebrated national grilled cheese day today! We named them because we are geeks. We also had a side tomato/red pepper soup.
The Husky Kiwi
2 slices Squirrley bread
1 tsp hummus
2 fresh pineapple slices, thinly sliced
1/4 smashed avocado
lots of goat chedda
two sliced pepperoncinis
It got its name because when I lived in New Zealand I ate TONS of pineapple grilled cheese sandwiches. And I also gained about 25 lbs living there haha.
2 slices Squirrely bread
Earth Balance butter
thinly sliced red onion
Andrew set the sandwiches up. Cutieee.
Because it was a stay inside rain day, I decided to try out a new recipe.
I got it from the Whole Foods site but changed a few things. Including the name
CarrOAT Cake Bars
1 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups grated carrots
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water to make a binder
Preheat oven to 325F. Spray a cake pan with olive oil.
Combine oats, whole wheat flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, coconut and salt in a bowl and combine. In another bowl mix together carrots, maple syrup, applesauce, vanilla, walnuts and chia seeds. Put dry ingredients in the kitchenaid and combine and add wet ingredients while its mixing. Pour into pan and bake for about 1 hour.
I got to use my new Kitchenaid mixer! (Technically I used it the other day, but it was a complete cookie fail)
I forgot to take a picture after but don’t worry, there is about 15 bars so I’m sure they will make an appearance a lot around here. I’ll prob have one after this post
★EPIC SUSHI MOMENT★
Big day in my books.
Check these beeeauties out.
Colored soy sushi wraps!!!!
GAH! I have literally wanted these for about 4 ish years.
The day has finally come.
Look at all the pretty colors!
And they are all colored naturally with either spinach, tumeric, sesame, or paprika.
Of course I haaaad to make sushi for supper tonight.
I used the yellow, pink and green ones tonight.
I can’t wait to try them all.
They were A LOT different than nori though.
They were so much harder to roll!
And so delicate when cutting.
Luckily Andrew came to my rescue and salvaged the pink roll.
I mutilated the green and yellow ones. Oops!
Well that’s all folks!
See you tomorrow!!
