At 2.30 AM, I woke up and randomly decided to check the weather.
Seriously?? I’ve had enough of this.
In my haste to get to sleep last night, I forgot to include the frozen review in my post.
That might be related to the fact that it doesn’t really need a review, per se; it’s basically raspberry coconut water sorbet on a stick! Except that the bars had apparently melted and re-frozen, so the stick was pretty useless, and the texture was somewhat icy instead of creamy. I thought that it would be an easy way to get the wonderful flavor of the sorbet without the hassle of washing out a scoop and bowls, but I guess not.
I also didn’t include this, because the post was just getting way too long:
My love affair with tofu is still going strong. I dry-fried cubed tofu, then tossed it with a quarter cup of Whole Foods’ chunky salsa and let it chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Alongside, to help make some progress on my inexplicable pasta stock, we have baby bellas and shredded carrots sautéed in a bit of peanut oil, garlic powder, and onion powder. At the very end, I added some baby spinach and the cooked shells, and stirred it over a very low flame until the spinach was just wilted. All of this, of course, was later covered with a healthy sprinkle of garlic salt.
About those shredded carrots… now that I have them, I can make some sense of this paper.
It seems to be in my handwriting. (Well, duh — who else would list water as a replacement for oil?!) But I have no idea what this is, and I am too lazy to grate my own carrots, because I don’t want to wash out the food processor… so I never got around to making this, which is probably the only way I’ll figure it out.
And, yes, even though I hate washing it, I did use my food processor yesterday, didn’t I?…
That turned into this:
Sprouted quinoa bread. I made it the same way as the sprouted wheat berry bread, but this is nowhere near as good. For one thing, I think I soaked the quinoa for too long, so it’s a bit bitter. Nothing some sugar-free raspberry jam can’t fix, though.
For another thing, the batter never really formed a dough that I could knead; I just had to pour it into the pans to bake. It didn’t rise much after that, either. It tastes okay, I guess, but I’m not rushing to repeat this one.
The security guard, by the way, was not at the desk when I arrived this morning. I finally decided to speak up about it, because this is getting ridiculous. Apparently, I opened a can of worms… aren’t workplace politics so much fun?
It was… interesting. Sometimes lemon-flavored things are too tangy, even though I like lemon. This wasn’t, but it had a pretty “green” taste.
And also … salad rut, anyone?
I like it, and all, but I feel myself getting stuck here. Help?!
Speaking of getting stuck, what about this?…
You’re probably thinking, You’ve shown such a photo dozens of times! Well, yes, except that you would be wrong. That yellow stuff sprinkled on top is not nooch — it’s Parma!
I had been looking fruitlessly for a kosher, non-dairy parmesan cheese substitute, and I was so excited to find this online. I contacted Shannon from Eat in the Raw and asked for a sample, before I drove myself nuts trying to find it here. I totally did not expect a full-sized bottle! Thank you, Shannon! It was fantastic. I couldn’t really say whether it actually resembles real parmesan cheese, since I don’t think I’ve ever had it… But it suits my purposes just fine.
And, of course, I had to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day.
Now I must venture out into this…
…because I have a whole bunch of things to do tonight. None of which, unfortunately, include sleeping.
