might cook myself some new awesome healthy meal for lunch 6 years ago
Ive stopped cooking since ive come home from overseas. but im going to start again….. ive realised its one of the things that makes me happy…. plus im gonna be an awesome cook! 6 years ago
on sunday night I made http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2008/03/asparagus-and-mushroom-quiche-with.html.
I wish I had started earlier than 7pm, but it was necessary in order to accommodate a lazy afternoon watching Legends of the fall and then (finally) writing my lesson plans. it wasn’t ready for consumption until nearly 9:30, but that was okay as this makes for a relatively light meal. I skipped the bell pepper and instead added kale, broccoli and red onions to mine. it’s been so long, I forgot how much I love the versatility of quiche! we had some Follow your Heart cheddar in the fridge so I added that as well, for an extra cheesy-kick that both j and I liked. this is a winner in my book! 6 years ago
last week I made not one, but two “recipes” to get us through the week. The main one was Corn Chowder. care of VwaV, which is wonderfully spicy and jalapeno-y. less than one serving remains in the fridge. secondly, I attempted to break my addiction to spicy tofu sammiches from the Palm Tree by making my own tempeh “chicken” salad to take for lunch. I packed it full of good stuff like kale, carrots, walnuts and even some spicy pickles. j was a fan but, while I thought it was good, it came nowhere near the goodness that is the “sammich” and so I still visited the PT twice this week. this is one I’ll keep working on (no recipe, just winged it) til I come up with something that satisfying my sammich craving. 6 years ago
this is a subdivision of this “thing”
j and I are committing to take-out no more than once a week. To make this possible, we really need to get back into the groove of cooking (at least) one big recipe a week so that when we open the fridge, we aren’t met with desolation and the need to order in. I have at least 5 cookbooks which I’ve never cracked and a slew of blogs I read on a daily basis that are filled with ideas. this week’s recipe will result from this “thing” http://www.43things.com/things/view/1842341/have-a-virtual-cooking-date-with-super-cool-friend-once-a-month
stay tuned for details! 6 years ago
