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!!
Happy Easter weekend! Hope everyone has lots of fun plans! Anyone doing an Easter egg hunt?? That was always my favorite 🙂 Sorry that I haven’t posted in a couple days. After my second day shift I was EXHAUSTED! Like crazy for reals. I think I was in bed at 9pm. And I get home at like 730pm. And yesterday I was just too busy trying to get my appies ready for appetizer night.
Sooo how to break this down. I’ll just start with some breakfast on
Friday Thursday. (I can’t believe it’s been that long. booooo)
Trois egg whites, laughing cow wedge and organic ketchup.
I tried my hand at making the protein muffin vegan by using the flax seed meal + water mixture and a little bit more applesauce, but it didn’t turn out as good as I would of hoped. Obvi I still ate it though 😉 I mixed it with some granola, millet puffs and almond milk for breakfast #2 at work.
I packed some leftover lasagna
and leftover soup, some triscuit crackers, and an orange and some pineapple.
Supper that night was some pasta with steamed green beans and broccoli, italian dressing and goat cheese chunks. With TONS of pepper.
Yesterday was cooked oatmeal. Which I walked away from for 2 seconds and burnt it. Gives it some flava haha. I covered it completely with almond butta extreme, a huge blob of honey and some hemp hearts.
Lunch lunch lunch was a salad with sprouts, cucumbers and ranch with lentil couscous on the side. I literally licked my plate clean. Typical.
Appetizers. I decided to make low-cal stuff mushrooms, wonton chips, pineapple salsa and a fruit tray. I’ll post recipes soon. Maybe I should add a recipe section? What do you think??
There was so much good food last night. I DIDN’T TAKE ANY PICTURES!! RRRRRR I know. Uber crappy. Picture these treats: homemade jalapeno poppers, spinach dip, cheese dip, a frozen dessert (with my favorite chocolate bar ever Skor), boursin cheese and crackers, a surprise spread with black beans, veggies and rhubarb crisp! I overloaded and had a food baby when I got home.
Today is going to be kinda up in the air. I think I took in too much food last night to even THINK about food today 🙂
This is the reason my heart smiles:
My dad sent me these pics of their supper the other night. He is not missing an eyebrow, you just can’t see it 🙂 Cutest. ever.
So there you have it. B-O-R-I-N-G I know. So sorry. Hopefully the creative juices will be flowing after this last crazy night. I won’t be going home for Easter anymore 😦 because they are offering mad overtime so I will be staying to do that. But my mom is going to come in one of those days and I couldn’t be happier. Hopefully I’ll get home next days off 🙂
Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!! See ya soon monstas.
