*sigh of relief* I’m alive! In two days – 2 exams, 1 project, 1 essay – done. And I can relax for a night or two before getting back to the grind stone. My google reader hates me now, there are over 100 blog posts I have not even looked at. Which barely ever happens! But I now have a little time for internet use, so I will reappear at some point.
Since I’ve been studying and stressing like a crazy person, I haven’t really taken very many pictures of my food. So this edition of What I Ate Wednesday is a compilation of eats from the past week. And some other things thrown in at the end. But the food part is more important.
Check out Jenn‘s lovely site to see what’s up at the WIAW link party!
Somehow I still had to make muffins. Many people were appreciative.
the topping/sauce was Katie’s amazing protein frosting. If you have sun warrior, try this, you will not regret it.
The perfect, fluffy, stuffed omelet – I’ve reached the point where I can get it right every time! This has become a staple high-protein, low-budget, delicious meal. Sometime in the future, expect an omelet cooking-tutorial.
Inspired and based on Kristina’s recipe. Except I used egg whites and spelt flour, added some spices (garam masala!) and downsized the recipe. I think I’ve finally found a satisfying pancake! And strangely it’s not even sweet. Apparently I like my greens more than my sweets?
This is my interpretation of the boy scout motto. Always have snacks, preferably squash.
return of the giant protein cake!
I finally decided to give the boxed cake mix pumpkin muffin ‘trick’ a try. My mix (okay, I de-simplified it a little): 1 box pumpkin bread and muffin mix, 1 can pumpkin purée, 2 milled chia ‘eggs’, 1/4 cup almond milk, 2 t pumpkin pie spice. I brought them to campus and shared them with some friends – and they got rave reviews.
A few days later, this happened.
I was cutting into my perfectly shaped, blemish free (no pics, sorry) kabocha using my roommate’s large knife, which is not super high quality, and definitely not that sharp. The cut is not pretty, and that bandage barely covers it. But I’ll spare you the gory details.
That little incident prompted this:
Given the amount of squash and other vegetables I prepare, I have debated spending the money on a decent knife. Seriously, I’ve been thinking about it for weeks! Hopefully this guy likes vegetables over fingers.
This is seriously the most efficient way to make a single cup of coffee. Minimal time, effort, and cleaning required. Also, get a ceramic one if you can find one. Chemical free, and holds the heat better!
I really hope I have time for some real posts this week. I have so many things I want to write about!
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently?
Sweet or savory pancakes?
How do you make your single-serve coffee?
