And, even more exciting, I will be in California in less than 48 hours! I'm hoping to be able to post Sunday morning before I leave, and I might even take my computer and blog from California, but if not, this will be last post until next Thursday (I can't think of it - too depressing!) Instead of contemplating that, I will move on into my top eats of the week (although honestly, I love mostly everything I eat!)
I didn't have a lot of time to cook due to finals, but I did manage a few different eats. Take this yummy pizza for example:
Another yummy eat? How about my banana scramlette?
And I just found my second favorite sandwich (pesto still comes in first)
We also made spring roles this past week!! I <3 spring roles! But my favorite part? My Creamy Peanut Sauce!
Creamy Peanut Sauce
(Adapted from Vegan With a Vengeance)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon Asian chile oil
Peanut butter (i just add spoonfuls until it gets kind of thick and creamy)
Whisk all ingredients together in a small mixing bowl.
Then last night, I threw together something really quick, and it turned out to be one of my favorite dishes that I'm sure I will make again and again (and again... ;)
Quick, Cold Pasta
1 serving cooked pasta
A handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced
A handful of fresh basil, torn
1 ounce of goat cheese, crumbled
Olive oil, to taste (I recommend a generous amount)
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste)
Place all ingredients together in a bowl...
Now lets take a look at some recent breakfasts....
Here we haves some cold cereal!!!! SO exciting, I know ;)
But actually, it is kind of exciting for me since I only eat it like once a month. I find if it kind of funny that most of my friends would give anything to not eat cold cereal in the morning, and I find it exciting :)
Oats in a jar.... amazing as always!
Sweet Potato-Peanut Pudding Oats
1/2 cup rolled oats
Liquid for cooking the oats (I used about 1 cup of water)
1/2 cup cooked sweet potato
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
A spoonful of peanut butter (probably about 2 tablespoons?)
2 tablespoon to 1/4 cup almond milk (depending on how thick you want it)
Cook the oats according to package directions. Next, dump the oats and the remaining ingredients into a blender and blend away!
There's nothing like pudding for breakfast!! Thanks, Katie, as always for your amazing recipe ideas!!! And I'm definitely making your cake batter milk shake tomorrow!!! :) SO excited - I know it will be absolutely fabulous! Your recipes ALWAYS are!! :D
Oh, oooooone more thing, if you aren't bored to tears yet (I really hope you aren't!) I finally tried a (wait for it)....
Ok, enough about me, what about all of you wonderful people? How was your week? Did you have finals? Any particularly fabulous eats?
Have a great weekend everyone!! Love you guys!
