I was not in the mood of trying to perfect protein pancakes again, so I went with quinoa cottage cheese pancakes instead. I blended up 1/3 cup quinoa flakes with 1/4 cup cottage cheese, an egg white, cinnamon, and Truvia.
While I do like the fluffy texture of cottage cheese pancakes, they take so long to cook!! Hence why I do not make them very often. And even though they were good, I wasn’t completely delighted, because what I really wanted was this:
On Thursday night, I mixed 1/4 cup oats with half a serving of sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix; I think it was about a tablespoon. I added some Truvia and a mountain of cinnamon, along with an egg white, half of a banana (mashed), and an unmeasured amount of water that I estimated to be about half a cup. I was considering using hemp milk, but I didn’t want to ruin it! I baked it at 350 for about 45 minutes, until all the liquid evaporated.
Oatmeal banana pudding! In fact, I liked it so much that I promptly made another one to have today.
And now for the tortilla tale. I use Tumaro’s Tortillas when I make wraps. I finished my package on Sunday, and because I knew I had just one tortilla left, I’ve been attempting to buy another package. I say “attempting” because I have not met with success. See, I can’t just walk into a store and buy them — I need them to have an additional label stuck on the package that certifies it as Pas Yisroel. And I haven’t been able to find that. Since I am a little compulsive about this, and I have had the same lunch every (non-holiday) Sunday for who-knows-how-long, I needed wraps. Enter:
They’re higher in calories than the Tumaro’s; I was actually tempted to buy these instead, but I don’t want a dozen of them… I’m hoping I’ll find the ones I really want before too long. Anyway, I just had to try these out right away, so I made a “pizza.” (My brother stood over it for a good thirty seconds before telling me that it was “missing dough and cheese.”)
Brown rice tortilla, pasta sauce, peppers, onions, and Lightlife pepperoni. Maybe because I used frozen peppers, the bottom got a little “soggy” … or maybe it was the pasta sauce. The edges were crisp, but the bottom wasn’t. Not that I minded — it was good! I still want to find the Tumaro’s tortillas, but these aren’t bad at all.
But this is bad:
I hate dirty nails. It’s a pet peeve of mine. And enough of a reason to wear polish, because if my nails aren’t 100% sparkling clean, I can’t stand looking at them. Anyway, I bought this on Friday morning, thinking it was the color that you see in the bottle, with a little bit of sparkle to it. And the name wasn’t unattractive, either:
If you ask me, that name ought to be attributed to a red polish, but whatever. Seriously, who comes up with the names for nail polish colors? I get a kick out of them. Though nobody beats Opi! Anyway, I did not get what I was expecting.
I kind of feel like I’m back in the seventh grade. Or like a fairy pincess shat glitter all over my hands. I’m so glad I didn’t buy the orange polish instead of the blue — imagine how garish that would have been! Eep.
Due to some extremely unwelcome aquarium drama, I need to find time this week to visit a pet shop… when that will be happening, I don’t know, because thus far the week is looking insanely busy! Because, you know, I need to spend most of my time at work so that people who don’t work can benefit from my non-salary. (That sound you hear is my blood pressure escalating through the roof.) I can’t even begin to compose a to-do list, because there is too much to put on it. Ah, well…
Recycled, of course.
Have a great Sunday.
