Here is what a green smoothie looks like at 6:15 am outside my apartment. Unfortunately the picture of the pumpkin muffin did not turn out. I have found myself craving a lot of fruit lately.
Today I had some of my mint chocolate cashew puddingpiecake with date/nut/seed crust and an orange for a later lunch and it was really good. Before that, for a mid morning snack, I had some sourdough toast with roasted red pepper hummus. After work I headed out to Crazy Fred's to check out this week's comics since we hadn't been able to make it on Wednesday. When I got home I attempted another grilled "cheese" sandwich with tomatoes. It was really decent. Definitely not cheese though.
I debated on whether I should make myself a "real" dinner or just figure out something easy later on. When I finally got hungry I didn't really want anything except for fruit of which I have none fresh. Scouring my kitchen for anything that sounded appealing, I decided to have some granola bars that hadn't held together that make pretty decent cereal. I had some of this:
that I had opened recently and thought that cereal sounded good.
I prepared the granola bars by crumbling and adding some extra chopped nuts and some raisins.
Looks good, right? High hopes for a yummy dinner were had. Then I opened the hemp milk and was about to pour when I noticed the date said use by 9/9/09. Usually I wouldn't care so much except that with any sort of milk I try to finish quickly to keep from spoiling. I only opened this a few days ago and I think I got ripped off at the store, but oh well.
So, now what to do with my beautiful bowl of cereal and no milk?
Mash up some frozen raspberries with a little water!
You would not believe how delicious this was! And I didn't notice until I uploaded the picture that it is <3 shaped.
I love it when stuff like that happens.
