Friday & Saturday… Too much Candy… @_@

Friday:

I finally had a bowl of barley & adzuki beans (no more jujubes!!! *sad face*) around 4…

I knew dinner was around the corner but I was starved….

I didn’t wanna wolf down too much for dinner so I had a delicious honeycrisp!!!

I was thinking of steamers… or maybe a steak or turkey for dinner but instead I decided to stop by Barnes & Nobles, buy some new cookbooks and grab another salad at Whole Foods :D

Spinach, Zucchini, Summer Squash, Cucumbers, Corn, Peas, Edamame, Cherry Tomatoes, Celery, Artichoke Hearts

I had it all with a side of my homemade beets & super spicy salsa!!!

Yummmm!!! I *heart* beets!!!

This stuff is soooo freaking spicy, just a tiny bit really played up my salad. I usually DON’T use dressings because I think a great salad doesn’t need it so you can taste all of the different flavorings of each veggie… but I like sprinkling hot pepper flakes sometimes so this salsa was awesome.

New books and Bon Appetit

I finally found my whole grains book that I’ve been wanting for awhile. I LOOOOOOOOOVE it!!!

Grain p0rn Centerfold: 

Hehehehe


I ended up eating ALL OF THIS!!!!!!! & then a pack of GUMMY TUMMY PENGUINS too!!!


& of course PEACHY O’s…

 I have a horrible sweet tooth :[ I also had a lot of pb from the jar…

SATURDAY:

The last of the barley & adzuki. I can’t wait to eat oatmeal again!!!

I went to a wine tasting today :] I got ID-checked.



I ended up buying a deliciously sweet German Riesling :]

Preparing for dinner…

Making truffled sweet potato fries!!!!

EVOO, S&P, Black Truffle Oil :]


This week’s BSI!!! Here’s the recipe for my Tofu Eggplant Black Bean Burgers

Making Butternut Squash puree… I needed to use it up before it went bad… I added a carrot & an apple for sweetness… Boiled it with a bit of water and a cinnamon stick under fork tender, then I pureed it with my stick blender (which is great for my newly found love for pureed soups and stuff)



My side dish mix.. of FRESH wheatberries (I missed them so I made them today!!!), chinese chives, kale & my squash puree… TASTES SO GOOD sprinkled with hot pepper flakes!!!!

The picture perfect dinner plate!!

After dinner I had 2 Cherimoyas.. and tons of Neon NITE Crawlers (from Russo’s…) I also had MORE pb & some chocolate toffee crunch… >_<‘ I’m getting so fattttttt… hahaha OK. I promise if I get any closer to hitting the 110 mark (eep!!!! scary!!!) I am SO cutting out sweets for awhile….. need.. to…run… tomorrow…..
