Ready, break!

November 20, 2010

I’m officially on Thanksgiving break, wa-hoo! 

This morning I turned down an invitation to join my mom and sister for french toast.  Crazy, I know.  But I wanted to sleep longer and I’m okay with eating oats.

I crushed up some graham crackers and layered them with my oats.

Topped with Justin Choco Hazlenut Buttah and mandarin oranges.  Weird?  Maybe, but I enjoyed it anyways.

Paper was printed, stapled and ready to go.

Lunch was inspired by a recipe I saw on Foodgawker and I’m too lazy to find it again.

Tahini Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1T maple syrup
  • 2t lemon juice
  • 1t curry powder
  • Dash of garlic powder
  • Dash of black pepper

Mix all ingredients.

Last night I had roasted some carrots, green beans and tofu.  All tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper.

This morning I mixed the veggies with the tahini sauce and voila, lunch.

I ate the salad at room temp but heated up the tofu before I added it.

Once I packed it up for lunch I realized I forgot a crucial ingredient.  Dried cranberries!

I would argue that the cranberries made the dish.

Talk about yum.

Sometimes you find inspirational notes in odd places.  Like the bathroom stall.  I thought this was very operationbeatiful-esque.

Does anyone else find it fascinating that foods natural come in colors like this?

To say I’ve been looking forward to making Ashley’s Veggie Behemoth: The Lover all week would be an understatement.  Also I don’t know why I suddenly can’t insert links but you can find this recipe on (never home)

It involves coleslaw.  I kinda winged this.  Red cabbage, honeycrisp apple, apple cider vinegar, salt and organic sugar. 

Then I left it sit in the fridge for a couple hours while I dragged myself to the treadmill.

Just kidding I was actually really excited to run and got in a good 5 miles before calling it quits because it was so dark outside and it felt like 10 pm even though it was really only 5:30.

I’m off to devour a veggie behemoth and hopefully dominate trivia.  Yeah right, that never happens.  You’ll have to wait till Sunday to find out how the sandwich was 😛
