Take Two!

Today was all about repeats.

Take Two #1: Dinner at Moosewood! On Thursday nights, students get 15% off!

Remember when I went with the lovely fella a while ago?? This time I went with some friends.

Sadly, I forgot my fancy camera!  It was packed up and ready to go but in my rush out the door I left it behind.  I did however have my crappy point and shoot (I really need a new one!).

Started with a delicious salad exactly like last time.

As an entree, I had a delicious Caribbean Pineapple-Peanut Stew: “Sweet potatoes, cabbage, tomato, bell peppers, and fresh pineapple simmered with ginger, lime, chiles, cilantro and peanut butter; served on rice, with jerk tempeh.”  Spicy and tangy!

Ohh goodness!  Sooooo delicious!

I also had a bite of Rhoda’s Alsatian Cheese Tart (Flaky pie crust baked with a filling of caramelized onions, Fontina, Gruyere and smoked cheddar
cheeses and egg custard; served with apple-celeriac remoulade).

Holy deliciousness!  This was amazing!  Although I still thought my stew was better 🙂

Take Two #2: Granola Bars!


Here’s my upDATED version:

2 cups oats
20g chia seeds
2 tsp cinnamon
1/5 cup of whole wheat flour
4 Tbsp Toasted Wheat Germ
1 oz dried coconut
5 dates, chopped
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 cup applesauce

Combine all ingredients, bake at 350F for 25 minutes.

They turned out great!!!  So excited!!! Here’s the nutrition info for these babies:

Delish! Make these!!

Anyway, I’m pooped and I still have a ton to do!

Thanks for all your tea suggestions!  I’ll be looking around for them in stores 🙂

Have a great night!!

Addiction

Hello, my name is Karla, and I’m a soup-aholic.

I love soup!  I could probably eat it for just about every meal.  However, I’m trying to keep it under control.  Today (and yesterday for lunch too) I had a delicious soup I got at the Wegster.

I can’t even explain how delicious this soup is!  Perfect amount of tang and not too salty, as boxed/canned soups often tend to be.While it looks and says it’s creamy, it doesn’t actually have cream in it!  No lactaid pill needed!

The best part was it’s pretty healthy!  Very natural ingredients and low cal also helps 🙂

Scrumptious soup was accompanied by my other addiction: Hummus/Cheese/Veggie wraps with lots of Tapatio!

I this wrap: hummus, pepper jack, romaine, raw kale, tomatoes, tapatio.  Mmmm!

I need your help!  I’ve been ending each meal with a cup of tea, which means I’m flying through tea!  I need tea suggestions!

What’s your favorite tea?? Herbal infusions count too!

In other news… I’m soooo excited about dinner tonight!  I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks!  I can’t wait to share with you all!

Have a great afternoon!
