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!!

that caribean stew looks fantastic!!! isn’t it fun to have good meals with friends!? I miss that!
#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 heard SO much about Moosewoods. I wish we had restaurants like that over here 😦
Those granola bars look awesome! Dates AND coconut? YUM.
Aww I love dinner with friends! Your meal looks so wonderful!!
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. 🙂
So jealous that you get to go to Mooosewood! I want to go there so badly…and I’ve been wanting to make some jerk tempeh lately!
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.
Those bars look like they turned out great!
I never heard of Moosewood. It looks awesome though!! jerk tempeh? 😯 Want!
Isn’t it weird going back to “regular” digital cameras after using fancy ones? They feel so tiny lol.
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?
Traditional Medicinals – Throat Coat! O.m.g. So good. I highly suggest it!
wow those bars look great! thank you for sharing!
Wow those granola bars look great!
