Speaking of favorite comedians, Anna‘s favorite comedian happened to be Jerry Seinfeld, who co-hosted Live! With Regis And Kelly this morning, which set me off(Don’t worry, Anna: Your Jerry is safe). Jerry asked the his guest, one of the Kardashians(I don’t even approve of those girls enough to look up which one it was) how her newborn baby was, to which she replied “Delicious”.
I’m sorry, but “delicious” should not be used as an adjective to anything other than food. This is a BIG pet peeve of mine. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. 30 years ago, if anyone called their kid “delicious”, we’d be up in arms about a woman eating her own young. Nowadays we just glance past Cannibal Kardashian. I say no more; delicious is not an acceptible adjective to throw around. Just like “purple” has a very limited use, so should delicious. And as a food blogger, I think I know delicious when I see it.
Jessica posted a delicious looking recipe this morning: chocolate pecan butter. Yes please. Since I already had pecan butter with cashews on hand, I adapted with my chocolate nut butter recipe and added coconut oil, agave, and cocoa powder to a small portion. Yum! I mean, delicious!
A nice, short 6-laps around the neighborhood today was just what the doctor ordered after my 16-miler yesterday. And since I had fresh chickpeas cooked from this morning, lunch was a no brainer.
Nothing tastes quite like sauteed chickpeas–so good! Just a little(OK, a lot) of EVOO in the pan firmed these up with some sweet potato wedges and sea salt over greens. On the side a nice cool, frothy, and–dare I say–delicious Virgil root beer.
Nothing is quite as good as dessert with lunch. And trust me–I needed this while trying to convince my grandmother not to disassemble the vacuum cleaner and just sit down with her box of wine(not really(she uses bottles)).
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more delicious vegan ice cream than So Delicious–yum! I like getting the plain flavors so I can add my own mix-ins; can you spot the vegan chocolate chips?
Where has this new and delicious nut butter been all my life? I ordered it from Tropical Traditions and it’s been love at first bite. I added a few peanuts this time to make it “chunky”. Note to self: Molasses and peanut butter is a match made in heaven.
And dinner wasn’t pretty, but it was delicious. I cooked lentils in salted water to al dente. After they had cooled, I simply seasoned and browned some fatty ground beef. When that cooked through, I added 1/2 a baked potato and some lentils to soak up the residual beef fat. Yum! With all the fat flying around, there was plenty of flavor here. If you eat bacon, this would be the way to have it. I’m just sayin’.
What’s one of your pet peeves? If you say food that looks like a pile of poo, I’m sooo sorry for my dinner. In my defence, I was going for a white chili. And white as in not tomato based; not white like “I’m so white, I make Casper look like Snookie”.
