Sometimes You Just Gotta Cook
It is Wednesday and you know what that means…. another WIAW. Woot! Jenn thank you for hosting! If you want to see more eats, pop over to Peas & Crayons.
And for this What I ate Wednesday- here are my Tuesday eats.
I have this funky relationship with Tuesdays. I don’t like them. I don’t see clients on Tuesdays and as a result I save all of the not-so-fun paper work and other catch up activities for Tuesdays and my motivation mojo is always super low on these days, so I basically want to throw a temper tantrum all day long. I realize I am ridiculous. Yesterday instead of throwing a temper tantrum, I decided to stay in my PJ’s, light some candles, plug in the Chirstmas tree throw on the Michael Buble holiday station on Pandora and cook my heart out.
Burt was thrilled about this:
On the menu:
crockpot, vegan apple crisp:
Honestly, I did not love this, so I am not going to post the recipe. It needs tweaking.
I ended up using it as a little topping on some Greek Yogurt.
Next up was Sir Tempeh. I love tempeh from the restaurants, but I can never nail it at home. I think I nailed it yesterday.
I cubed an 8oz packet of organic tempeh, put in a bowl with the marinade below and let sit for 20 minutes.
- 1/4c lite coconut milk
- 1/4c tamari
- 1t raw honey
- 1T brown rice vinegar
- 1T shredded coconut
- sprinkling of ginger powder (optional)
- squirt of Siracha (optional- could use red pepper flakes if you want a little heat, but don’t have Siracha on hand)
Kale & Avocado Salad:
And for dessert…. Gluten-Free, Vegan Sorta Sugar Cookies
I followed this recipe except I used two flax “eggs” instead of the Ener-G “eggs” and I used sucant instead of sugar. I also used part of Pamela’s GF pancake mix for some of the GF flour because I ran out of flour. oops. I did not frost these bad boys, instead I rolled them into balls then dipped them in a bowl of sugar crystals. I also baked for 9-11 minutes because they are more dense than the flat cookies the original recipe calls for.
These are pretty good, but they almost taste more like scones than sugar cookies.
And today the kitchen is closed. I have work to catch up on, but it was nice to spend an unexpected day in the kitchen.
Hellllloooooo, I’m Kelli
