I love wordpress.org. And I love my new web host. And I’m sure I’ll love the new design when that’s up. But most of all, I love getting back to normal blogging and running! But then again, what’s normal around here?
I have my first batch of almonds sprouting. Will I know when they’ve “sprouted”? I guess if a tree appears in my kitchen, yes, yes I will.
And I had potatoes cleaned and shoved in the oven before I sat down to breakfast. Yep, that’s normal around here. Of course, normal means desserts…
These brownies came out great. They’re a little dry, but that’s just because they aren’t saturated in fats; if I were bringing them to a party, I’d probably stick an extra 1/2 cup of butter in there And I topped it with some melted vegan chocolate as the “glue” to hold walnuts. Got to get those omega-3′s in!
And this took some master flavor-pairing to work up: Vanilla Chobani with vanilla peanut butter. Honestly, I used to loove the Vanilla Chobani but now that I’ve cut back on stevia it’s too sweet! I’d rather have plain. Funky.
Why hadn’t I thought of putting “just” chocolate on oatmeal before? Or why, in all my years of melting chocolate, has nobody suggested over oatmeal instead of the microwave or a double boiler? You can bet this plate was licked clean. And it didn’t taste all too sweet, probably because I buy really dark chocolate.
Literally, all the jam was was a chunk of banana and some raw local honey mushed together and it was fantastic. Almost like my favorite banana pineapple rum jam, which I’ve been out of for a month now. The yogurt will catch my tears.
What’s “Normal” for you that’s not so for the “traditional” way of things? Sometimes I forget that most families haven’t been bringing their children to Indian casinos since they were 2 when people tell me they’ve never been to Foxwoods.
