Boxes Everywhere

I didn’t think my place could look like any more of a disaster than it did, but I was wrong. I looks like I’m building forts with all these boxes in here, and I still don’t feel like I’ve packed up THAT much stuff – mostly because I’m not tackling the kitchen until Thursday, and let’s face it, there’s alot of stuff in there.

To get my busy Sunday started off right, I made myself a very pink tofudding.

food2 134

  • 1/3 block Mori-Nu Firm Silken tofu
  • 3/4 frozen banana
  • few frozen raspberries
  • splash of coconut extract
  • 1 tbsp Meadowpure Ultra SmoothOmega Flax Seed (from that sample I received recently)
  • milk
  • fresh raspberries
  • coconut
  • chocolate granola

Like I said, a very pink bowl of tasty eats.

I also defrosted an Almond Quinoa muffin to have alongside. Check out the chunks of apricot in there.

This fuelled me through a random assortment of tasks this morning…er, mostly afternoon. Yes, I slept in again. What can I say, I’m jobless, I can embrace my inner night owl to the fullest finally! It was a cloudy morning, and I thought I was going to have pass up on my hopes of a bike ride this afternoon, but fortunately, the sun came out and it was actually quite warm.

I knew if I didn’t have a little something before heading out on my bike, I was going to be famished by the time I got home, so I chowed on a little watermelon.

My bike ride was ever so enjoyable. I don’t know if I’ll have the time to head out on another one before I leave, so I was glad to get it in. When I got back, it was time for a late lunch.

The last portion of fridge-clearing pork stirfry with jasmine rice.

As good as it tastes, I was glad to be rid of it. Something about stirfry – I love to make it, but the leftovers rarely do it for me. And I’m a total leftover person. Weird, eh?

I don’t even know how late it was when I ate dinner. Probably something ridiculous like 9 pm? No matter. I had a craving for some mashed potatoes ever since someone at work was eating some this past week. Fortunately, I had some in the house that I needed to use up, so I got a little wild and crazy, and made some fancy mash.

I steamed up some Yukon gold potatoes, broccoli, and garlic cloves, while I also rehydrated some dried porcini mushrooms. I threw them all into bowl, and mashed away with some dijon mustard, Laughing Cow, green onions, pepper, and the little nub of roasted garlic havarti I had left. I think it turned out pretty good. Reminds me of twice baked potatoes, and the porcini mushrooms were almost like having bacon in there.

Alongside, I had three Turkey Feta & Spinach meatballs.

Although filling, there was a little room left for dessert. What can I say, I have cupcakes in my fridge that need to be eaten!

I had the other half of that scrumptious Nuttin’ Butter cupcake (fudgy cake + peanut butter crack frosting) with a scoop of So Delicious Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Ice Cream, and more of those damn fresh raspberries. I’ll admit it, I’m a raspberry addict during summer.

I’ve had a few questions about how the red pepper jelly I have from time to time tastes – sweet or spicy? I would say that due to it being a jelly, and the fact that you are using sweet red peppers, it is definitely sweet. But it has heat behind it. The stuff that I use is my aunt’s homemade jelly, and I know that she includes jalapeno in her recipe. So it’s sweet with a little heat. It’s excellent with soft white cheeses like Laughing Cow, brie, camembert, etc. Hope that helps!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now I must find my way to bed. Even though I’m all about being a night owl, I have a whack of phone calls I need to make tomorrow, so I have to work on “business hours”. Booo-urns. Night!

    ahhh pink makes me soo happy!!! especially if it’s in your food! I always love your stir fry creations, but you’re totally right, leftover stir fry isn’t very good. It’s just too dry and ucky!!!

    I remember when we moved last year we had boxes every where! I never realized how much crap we accumulated in 9 years.

    Your stir fry looks as good today as it did the first day you made it! YUM!

    Glad to hear you were able to get out for a nice bike ride…
