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!
