In which we embrace the plant-base
(Oh hi, it’s been a while, we’re changing things on…
It’s been pretty quiet around here lately. I feel like I’ve been super-busy, but can’t exactly pin down what I’ve been up to, aside from working on Book #2. I guess that in itself can be quite a lot of work, what with the tracking down chefs and having meetings and all. I looked through my recent photos and realized I hadn’t gotten around to blogging these – so here is what we’ve been eating recently!
This morning I donned my rain boots and walked over to Caffe Medici to get us cappuccinos and tacos. It was a lovely start to the day. :)
My mom said that sometimes my grandma bakes sweet potatoes, and my mom will pour milk over it and maybe add sugar. It sounded so good that I tried it myself. I had one half with brown sugar and cream, and the other with brown sugar and marshmallows.
Justin’s favorite thing to make for dinner is spring rolls. He’ll take whatever veggies we have left in the fridge and stuff them in there, then he makes a peanut sauce. It’s pretty awesome.
And then, he found brussels sprouts in the fridge, and just roasted them up. I ate like half of them while they were cooling. :)
I made hominy, chile and tomato soup, with avocado, lime and tortillas. I love my little vintage plate!
One night we were craving something sweet, so I found an oatmeal cookie recipe in the Gourmet Cookbook, and tossed in some chocolate chips and chopped dark chocolate. It was perfect!
I actually don’t even remember what this was. It was leftovers from something or other, and I ate it with bread, I guess.
I got this print at Renegade Craft Fair. I love it!
Also, ’tis the season for me to sing this song over and over and over again… :)
