Remember last Wednesday when I said I had an intense urge to bake rather than cook any meals? Over the weekend, I gave in. Big time.
Cookies, scones, granola, lava cake! Just a few of my favorite things.
If you click on the links of all the recipes in this post, you’ll see that I’m a big fan of Mama Pea’s. The cookie recipe is the only one I use for cut outs. The lava cake is my favorite for when I need a serious chocolate fix. So good!
I’ve been balancing my dessert streak with my usual veggie love. I’m still loving my green smoothies. In fact, I got smart this past week and have now started making smoothies for EVERYONE. That means the little people get theirs and I get mine.
That usually does the trick except on Monday when they finished their breakfast first. As soon as I sat down, 2 little heads popped up next to me saying
You can’t blame ’em. My oatmeal creations are pretty amazing.
I found peaches in the freezer from one of our many trips to the orchard over the summer. Not as good as fresh picked but it gave me a little taste of summer in December.
My leftover lunches that I bring to work are random but hit the spot. It never fails that I get asked, “What is that?”
Roasted tomatoes and Brussels Sprouts w/ feta cheese and white beans, Better Bay Biscuit and an orange
When I was planning out our meals for this week, I wanted to make Sloppy Josephine’s. But we were missing a couple of ingredients and I didn’t pick any of it up when I was at the grocery store. So I improvised. I just threw everything into the pan that I thought might taste good together – lentils, tomato sauce, garlic, diced onions and red pepper, and BBQ sauce. Simple and easy. The lentils were still a little crunchy but I kind of liked it better than the usual mush.
I’m linking up with Jenn for another WIAW!
