Hiya monsters! Today has been a really great day! I am supa supa tired though now! So if you don’t mind, I’m just gonna fill your faces with pictures Keep in mind everyone in my life is camera shy (or maybe embarrassed to know me haha) so there are no happy family shots! Just foooood and puppy
Waffle Wednesday was a success! I had one toasted hemp waffle, smothered it with a laughing cow wedge, an egg and a teeny bit of goat chedda and 1 tbsp of organic maple syrup. Nommity nom nom.
This definitely wasn’t enough so I had half of a dragon fruit. FYI – try this if you haven’t.
I didn’t eat lunch today! Too busy hanging out with my mom! I snacked on many things when I got home though. Many UNpictured things. Oops! My mom brought supper with her for tonight. It is one of my favorite meals from when I was a kid and my mom vegetarianized it for moi. Hamburger pizza for everyone, broccoli and pineapple pizza for me Observe the yumminess:
The empty table (fourth spot on the table is for my younger brother )
Look at who was hanging around lookin for a crumb:
Two desserts for one hungry monster:
lemon meringue pudding
Bed time! Sleep tight and I’ll see you back here tomorrow! I’m oooooouuuuttt!
Sup muffins! Today was like the fastest day ever! I can’t believe that it’s already 11:00 pm! Craziness.
I woke up a starvin marvin this morning. Good thing I made overnight oats last night. Pheeeew. I added macadamia nut butter to switch it up a bit, raspberries, aaaand granola for the crunch.
I couldn’t even eat it all! Weird.
I cleaned cleaned cleaned this morning and took Beasley for a quick walk. When I came back I tried my hand at scones. I’ve never made them before but figured they couldn’t be too hard! And I was correct. SCONE WIN. I made whole wheat maple date scones and they were awesome possum!
ghetto rolling pin. it’s what all the cool kids use.
Meee ow. I used my pizza stone and it worked perfectly! Minus the extra bit of flour creeping on top of them.
As soon as the scones were done I had to run out of the house to meet this pretty girl for lunch
Can you believe this was in 2008?? Haha obviously before I found Invisalign. Damn snaggle.
I brought her a scone and some asian parteh mix to snack on at work.
Anywoo we went to Jakes on 21st for some lunch and and some chatting. I MISSED HER!! I had The Mediterranean panini with a side of fruit. Of course it was fabulouso. And I was a good girl and took a picture. ( I will learn to be a good food blogger one day)
After lunch I came home and had lots of bonding with this little man
After sharing a few bites of scone
Aaaand he’s done with pictures. Look at this dirty grimace.
Bahaha. He just makes my life.
Before I knew it it was suppa time! Andrew wasn’t eating with me so I decided to make clean-out-the-fridge-veggie-burgers. Yes that is what they are actually called. They can have anything in them and they are (almost) always great.
Start with some veggies
mix in some black beans, carrots, pumpkin seeds, an egg, a handful of oatmeal, worchestshire sauce, cheese, etc.
use your new mister (or if you didn’t just go to Home Sense for some retail therapy) put about a tsp of olive oil in a pan and cook the burgers!
I made a few minis as well
Leftover bean salad from last night, steamed broccolini and asparagus with lemon juice and goat cheese, flax bunny with my burga topped with sprouts, organic ketchup and relish. I LOOOVE RELISH! Any kind. For reals.
I probably went back and had another burger
Dessert was some serious sconeage. I warmed one up in the oven, cut it in half, topped it with some Stoneyfield Yo Baby Vanilla Hug yogurt mixed with xanthan gum to make it fluffy, and raspberries.
It was sooo goood but I just couldn’t finish it all. Oh wells.
Two AWESOME things about tomorrow:
1. It is Waffle Wednesday!! And I have waffles. Ooh yeah.
2. MY MOM IS COMING!!! Na na na na na na na.
Hope you guys had a great great day! Be back tomorrow!
Mix that is! Muahahaha more on that in a sweet little minute.
Sooo…about Starbucks Awake tea latte. Shiz kept me up until 5 in the morning!!! I know I slept in late because I had just gotten off night shifts, and then went in and worked some overtime but REALLY?! 5:00 am??? SO LAME BALLS. Caffeine effects me like crazy. Rrrrr. Anyone else in the same boat? I opted to cancel overtime today. It was a pretty good decision because I cooked instead! Which means lots of pics for all of yous. Starting with brunch! I brought back the poached eggie and hollandaise sauce. ABSOLUTELY started my day off right.
Silverhills Mack’s Flax bread (if you can find this, buy it. I am so obsessed) with a poached egg and steamed spinach. Looks a little dry though, yeah?
BAM! The tomato hollandaise sauce was extremely easy and extremely delushious. It was one laughing cow wedge (what else), a little bit of almond milk (the unsweetened regular if I haven’t mentioned that before), lots of pepper and about 4 chopped up cherry tomatoes. So simple yet sooo good. I used my finger to wipe up the excess. And then licked my finger clean
Andrew and I hit up the grocery store to grab a few things. As per usual we should of grabbed a cart. I could literally spend hours in the grocery store. Especially ones that have just had a makeover. I never just shop at one – I always switch it up. We are going to both Trader Joes and Whole Foods while we are on vacation this year and I AM FRICKIN OUT OF MY MIND ECSTATIC. That is my vacation haha.
Here is da loot:
This little guy was hiding in the back
Gobble gobble gobble.
I was starving after shopping I just haaad to
sample eat some honey mustard pretzels. I. need. to. get. more. NOW.
Ah supper. I had been creeping Janetha’s wonderful blog this morning and could not get over the yummy yummy carrots that her and her future hubby made. I LOVE cooked carrots. The recipe is here and it really is a five star recipe. ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ It’s supposed to serve 4 but uh Andrew and I demolished them. So I say it serves 4 regular people or 2 hungry monsters.
We had 2 portobello mushrooms in the fridge that needed to be used so Andy decided to stuff them and bbq them. YUM. We mashed two laughing cow wedges (of course haha), chives, red and green peppers, dill and cayenne pepper together and stuffed the cleaned out mushrooms. Topped with sharp old goat chedda and tada! Lush.
While Andrew was making the rest of his supper, I decided to do an impromptu photo shoot with Beasley. FAIL. Every time I went to take a picture he looked away!
He finally looked at me but only to give a diva no-more-pictures look.
Bean salad was also had. I blanched the beans in boiling water for about 5 minutes and then transferred them over to an ice bath.
I used this recipe for the salad.
Lean Mean Bean Salad
1 bunch of green beans
1 cup of chickpeas
3/4 cup kidney beans
2 tbsp fresh oregano
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp white wine vinegar (Or regular white)
2 tsp stoneground mustard (I’m sure any kid would work)
salt and pepper
half a red onion thinly sliced
1 clove of garlic, minced
Blanch the beans for about 5 minutes and then toss into a bowl with ice water. Dry completely and then mix with the other beans and onion. Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour over beans. Toss well to combine.
Because I didn’t feel like this was enough food yet (GAH, my eyes are always waaay bigger than my belly) I sliced a few strips of zucchini, brushed them with olive oil, salt and pepper and the boyf threw them on the bbq.
Only 2 turned out (too thin, lesson learned) but they were so so good! I mixed some goat cheese and dill together, spread it on and rolled them up.
Here is my plate:
Even though Andrew doesn’t want his picture on the blog yet, he was totally okay with me putting pictures of his food on here So for all you meat eaters, here ya go. I have no idea what this is called though haha. He used my little wonton cups as a base and filled them with bbq chicken, veggies and goat chedda.
After supper was finished, Andrew and I took Beasley for a late night walk. So glad we did because there were the C-R-A-Z-I-E-S-T northern lights out! You don’t usually get to see them in the city so it was a sweet treat.
When we got back we both had bowls of icecream before Andrew went to bed.
FINALLY. The reason for the name of my post. I made Asian Party Mix! Booyah! And it is taasteh! Check it out:
I found the recipe here.
Made some his and hers overnight oats for the am:
Okay. I might have left out a teeny tiny tidbit about today. Even though the Alive latte KILLED me last night, I still went and got another one today! They are that good! And now it’s 3:00 am. My bad. I’m hittin the hay right meow.
Hope everyone had a great day and your tomorrow is even better I have a lunch date and cleaning planned. SHWEEEET!
Hi! How is everyone?? Hopefully you’re having a really good weekend. Mine has been going just fine. Did you celebrate Earth Hour tonight?? We sure did! We shut all of our lights off, took Beasley for a walk (his 2nd one today ) and then came home, lit some candles and shared the So Delicious coconut milk vanilla bean icecream I bought the other day.
This is my third year participating and it just warms my lame little heart how many people do this. The Sydney Opera House and the Great Pyramids of Giza even shut off their lights!
Our living room all lit up, missing the two boys
What kind of things do you do to help the earth? We do small things everyday like use cold water to wash our clothes, use reusable grocery bags and sandwich bags, unplugging appliances when we aren’t using them, and recycling as much as possible! And in the summer we compost
Backtracking to yesterday.
Three egg whites, goat cheese, 1/4 of an avocado, chopped tomato, dill and an apple.
We had a popcorn night at work (cuz my new supervisor is so cool) and she brought her air popper, I brought some popcorn and another girl brought a bunch of popcorn seasonings. I OVERLOADED myself with delicious popcorn. It was crazy.
I only took one picture of what I took for lunch last night. I didn’t think you needed to see another bowl of potato salad or another wrap so I left them out. Andrew made a quesadilla and left me half to take to work. It was curry ish and awesome.
Work was busy busy busy last night!! Ugh. Sometimes I wish crime would take a vacay LOL. But then I guess I wouldn’t have a job, right?
B-fast today was oatmeal with chia, raisons, blackberries, honey, quinoa maple cereal and almond milk. Weird, I know. I had a craving for all of those things and they tasted decee together.
and a smoothie
made with this
I knew we were having pizza at Andrew’s brother’s house tonight so I had a small meal so I wouldn’t go overboard once I got there. My brother dropped off some soup he made – butternut squash, pumpkin, carrots, cloves and curry – and DAMN! Sooo yummy!! I had it with a smear of goat cheese and whole wheat wrap.
I still managed to have 2 1/2 pieces of veggie pizza
Time for bed! Or time to have another snack?? Hahaha probably a little bit of both. See you guys tomorrow!!! BYYYYYYE!!
PS. The dreamy Michael Buble is on SNL tonight!!! ♥
Helloo!! Happy first day of spring! I’m all pictures and no talk today Hope you don’t mind.
1/3 cup oatmeal
2 tbsp chia seeds
2/3 cup almond milk
handful of blueberries
spoonful of cashew butter

SOO DREAMY. If you haven’t made this yet, please do it now. right now.
friends (sort of)
My weekend is over tomorrow and am going back to the city
I GET TO SEE ANDREW
Sweeet dreams muffins!!
Hellllooo monsters! TGIF hey?! I am blogging from my bed at my parent’s house right now woop woop!! I ♥ being at home. Sorry about my lame ass post last night. Didn’t realize that I don’t make much sense at 330 am! I’m also sorry for not posting pictures of the yam falafels! WTF, I know. I didn’t say they were god pics but here they are anyhoo
and here it is all wrapped up
Inside this beaut was some organic greens, tzatziki, and tomatoes. And falafels obvvviously. While I was busy being a bad blogga, I forgot to post pics of the finished (NOT over dehydrated) lizard skins.
Yes it looks like someone crapped orange on them. It makes them that much more awesome.
I probably forgot a few more pics in there somewhere (possibly work lunch x2) but I’ll make it up to you with a recipe or two. Happy?
3 tomatoes (I used red, orange and yellow)
2 garlic cloves, minced
couple leaves of torn fresh basil
sea salt and lots of black pepper
tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar (optional)
crunchy bread (I used a garlic loaf)
goat chedda, grated
Cut up tomatoes and mix with garlic, basil, salt and pepper, oils (if using). Toss until just mixed. Throw in fridge for 15-30 minutes to let everything blend together. Toast the bread, top with tomatoes and cheese and broil. I had two bigger slices for dinner or you could also make lots of little ones for appies
I guess I won’t be posting the recipe for the falafels because I just followed this recipe this time. I left out the bread crumbs, used almond milk and added a few different spices. Definitely fun to play around with.
Breakfast this morning was a simple egg white on a flax bun smothered in the hot jalapeno mustard and dipped in organic ketchup. I give it a 2 out of 10. That mustard is retarded.
I drank a black coffee on the way to Nips and when I got here I was a starvin marvin. Made spanish rice from a box. You bet.
Recognize the bowl?? All my friends had these growing up, too. Did you? Please tell me what they are called.
I also made another protein muffin thing. This time with chocolate protein. And cashew butter. No picture but I’m sure you can image how great it was
When I come home I feel so spoiled. Other than spending time with my fam, both my brotha and my motha are GREAT cooks!! (My dad and I are GREAT eaters hehe). This was what was for supper 2nite.
Gahh! Greatness. Brown rice pasta with my mom’s pasta sauce (zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, etc.), vegetables with buckwheat, and spicy confetti salad from Company’s Coming Tonight Magical Meals on Short Notice.
I had a piece of this and black current tea while I got schooled in cards.
Date cake/matrimonial cake or whateves it’s called. It was sure swell. Beasley is trying so hard to play with my kitties. Matty hates him but I think he’s growing on Gucci.
Time for me to get some sleep! FINALLY. Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Peace out cub scouts!
