overnight rice milk oats with the fixin's
sad end pieces of the rye bread, almond butter/cinna/raisins combo.
Raw Carrot Cake Fail:
I saw 2 very ripe bananas, so I mashed 'em.
I grabbed a bag of carrots, and shredded them.
I added some oats, and mixed.
Cinnamon, nutmeg, a few squirts of honey,
and I got myself a large carrot-oat pizza pie.
I froze it, like a granola bar.
The next morning? An orange pizza covered in frost, so I cut it into triangles, and hoped one would defrost in time for an afternoon snack. but, the taste: indescribably tasteless! It has good texture: carrots, oats. Good aroma: cinnamon, nutmeg. But shoot, something was missing (raisins, chocolate pieces, almond butter, more oats, less carrot?!) but the only ingredients I had on hand were inside of a church's kitchen (ie: daycare land). Guess what? These large triangles will be used in a very lovely manner: smashed into overnight oats, in an oat-waffle batter, inside a blender, etc. I'm kind of excited for this frozen failure, my future is looking quite carrot-y. :)
Recipe from here (thank you, google search on bulgur recipes!)
But o' course I added a little of me own flair.
I ate these:
while on the phone with Alaska Airlines, gettin' my hubby home early from his business trip! I wanted to enjoy these sweet potato fries with cinnamon/paprika with my bulgur eats, but hungry smacked me in the face and told me to eat them. So I did. Deliciouuus!
I tried eating only half, then leaving at least 5, then... devoured them all with some unsweetened ketchup from Whole Foods land.
Bulgur "Salad" with Garbanzos and Red Pepper
thank you, A Year in the Vegetarian Kitchen!
It was, insanely divine. It lacked a little something and I couldn't figure it out. Maybe more lime juice? More spice? Homemade salsa? Avocado? Well, if my hubby doesn't care for it and leaves me some mo' leftovers, I'll give one of those toppings a try. PS: I LOVE BULGUR ! It tasted so soft and delightful! Definitely becoming a regular around here. That is...if I can find it in large, convenient bags at Costco er something!
Dessert in a mug:
I diced up a banana, and dropped two over-sized spoonfuls of yogurt on top. Then I thought: shoot son, why don't I just blend this guy? So I dropped it into the blender, with 4 frozen strawberries, 4 ice cubes, and half a carrot-oat-triangle and blended it. Perfect portion for a mug, and it hit the "dood I want food" spot at 7pm. I topped it with golden ground flaxseed, almonds, raisins, and muesli.
