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!!

    #1: I got a Moosewood cookbook for Christmas and have been DYING to go ever since. Not sure when I’ll ever have a reason to trek up there, but the restaurant alone could be enough reason. 😉

    #2: Major granola bar love. Great nutrition stats, too.

    I have the granola bar bug right now and CAN’T wait until I get to make some again. This weekend. This weekend.. Only a few hours to go. 🙂

    Depends on if u love tea hot and cold. You could brew a big pot in the am…then have a cold tea for lunch–then switch back to hot for dindin. Or you could use loose tea, then it would stretch further.

    Like Erin, we also got a Moosewood cookbook for the holidays! I need to try some of their recipes. Your stew looks divine!

    I love the new recipe for the bars! What did you use to calculate the nutrition facts?
