Instead of ground beef enchiladas, crumbled tofu enchiladas!
veg oil+ onion, garlic, and red bell pepper, diced+ tofu, pressed then crumbled+ a can of green chiles.
For the sauce, the star was rehydrated dried things:
Dried poblano peppers and tomatoes.
With spices and things:
Then given a whirr with my new toy!
Well, new. This was probably the first immersion blender ever made. Inherited, from my dear grandmother who had the cutting edge kitchen tools first.
To accompany the enchiladas, an attempt at recreating the cabbage slaw that came with the pupusas the other night:
It was aight. Nothing to write home about.
Enchiladas are hard to photograph well… my filling overfloweth.
Who needs bread and butter when there’s homemade English muffin and avocado?
When it’s cold and drizzly out but you still want a salad, get the best of both worlds by roasting your veggies first.
With Chobs and green tea, in my opinion a ridiculously perfect post-gym lunch.
Oatmeal raisin cookies are awesome, but in my opinion even AWESOMER are oatmeal date cookies, which my mama made.
Date Nut Cookies
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup chopped nuts (we use walnuts)
1 cup chopped dates
Sift together dry ingredients (flour through nutmeg). Combine wet ingredients. Stir together dry and wet, then fold in dates and nuts. Refrigerate for one hour. Drop by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350* for 10-12 minutes.
Why yes, they are vegan. From my Lent cookbook!
Speaking of new twists, I am in need of one, rather badly, in my life. I am going *insane* in my house. As delightful as it is spending my entire life either working out or eating (and as dangerous as it would be if I cut out one of those activities but not the other) if I don’t get some mental stimulation and company soon, I am not sure what I will do.
I must get a job!
At the blogger meetup, we were talking about how we tried to keep our personal lives out of our blogs and keep things positive. However, I am relentlessly, nay, obnoxiously chipper most of the time, so consider this a relatable moment in the blog.
