Everyone left such nice comments on my last post! I can't thank you guys enouph! You are the sweetest!!
You may have noticed that I didn't reply to any. And that's because my blog has a really bad commenting system that doesn't allow me to reply to individual comments. If I ever get that fixed, I will be back to replying! Until then, I will just comment back on all of your awesome blogs! Does that sound all right?
I've tried a lot of different foodie combinations in the last 24ish hours (does anyone else use "ish"?). Let's go in chronological order, shall we...
Friday night, I was kind of in a rut. I was starving for some dinner, but it was dinner time, and it seemed as if I had nothing to eat! But if I'm hungry I always find something to eat. So lo and behold, I did!
Salsa Chickpea-Rice Bowl
About 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas (I used canned)
About 3/4 cup cooked brown rice
2 tablespoon salsa
1-2 tablespoon orange juice (adds a nice touch of sweetness)
Garlic powder/onion powder/ground cumin
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and dig in!
With a side of steamed veggies (sorry for the awful picture!)
The next morning, I tried something that I will be having again without any doubt!!! Behold Kathleen's Almond Joy Pizzert Babies!!!!!! Go ahead and clap. These little fellas' deserve a major round of applause!!
And guess what?? I've had socca at last! I used Heather's recipe and topped it with a spoonful of salsa!
And then for dinner, I was craving some more socca! So I spread some spicy dijon mustard on it (for some reason, I hate regular yellow mustard but love honey mustard and dijon mustard). Then I topped it with lettuce, a Sunshine burger, and a juicy piece of tomato. Another fantastic use for the socca! (Although I'm thinking the socca would be fantastic used in anything! :)
Cinnamon Grilled Bananas
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 smallish banana, sliced
Melt the coconut oil in a small, not-stick pan. Put the cinnamon in a small bowl and coat the flat side of each banana slice in the cinnamon. Place the banana slices in the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side.
Something else I love? Katie's Banana Brulee Oats!!! My add ins were vanilla extract and cinnamon! (And topped with peanut butter because a day just can't start without it!)
Sorry for this very long, chatty post!! I guess I'm just in a chatty mood this morning!
Just one more week of school and then spring break!!! Woohoo!! In a week, I will be just about on my way to California for a college visit! Can't wait!!!
The daily question: Are you going anywhere/doing anything special for spring break?
