The Opposite Of Sweet

October 12, 2011

It’s time again…

Can #2 wide open!

IMG_8782Blog

2/3 went into 2 freezer ziplock bags. 1/3 went into a glass container in the fridge.

And 1/2 a cup went into this recipe!

I DID end up doing yoga today!! A 75 minute Dave Farmar podcast that I actually managed to finish. Woo hoo! Felt so good, just like I knew it would. Thanks for your encouragement!

I also was successful in my bakery work – ordering a bunch of holiday things. Dipping oils, soup mixes, Dr. Pete’s Praline Mustard Glaze! Ordering is time consuming!

As I wrapped up, I got started on dinner – Angela’s Pumpkin Maple Baked Bean Cornbread Casserole 

IMG_8793Blog

As promised – savory pumpkin!

IMG_8770Blog

I’m in a habit of listening to Pandora on my phone while I’m in the kitchen. It’s the best way for music at this time!

IMG_8772Blog

Also: amazing cocktail made with 1/2 cup coconut water, 1 cup sparkling water and lemon slice!

This recipe was SO easy to make.

Heat baked beans [ dump a bunch of things in a pot. Heat.]

Mix cornbread [dump a bunch of things in a bowl. Stir.]

Layer.

Bake.

MixesBlogBakingBlog

I LOVED the vegan cornbread. Vegan breads are always more doughy than eggy breads – I need to remember this! The recipe was very similar to Ashley’s cornbread. Just like I did with hers, I used 1 cup cornmeal and 1 cup whole wheat flour (I think Angela used some gluten-free flours). Turned out great!

My dish was reallllllly big so the mixture was very shallow – but everything spread out just right. Loved the crispy cornbread edges!

On the side we had simple salads with fancy cheese and sugar-spice pecans

Salad-2Blog

The pecans were the best part! I came up with this idea on a whim when I was dry-toasting them in a skillet. I poured on 2 tsp of maple syrup, a pinch of kosher salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper. They all got swirled together for 2-3 minutes until the syrup was caramelized and very sticky. Then I served the nuts on the salad right away (don’t think these would keep very well because they were so wet?)

YUM!

Matt’s portion was about 2x mine! He’ll eat anything and be satisfied so long as there is ample volume.

IMG_8800Blog

IMG_8794Blog

And now back to sweet pumpkin

Matt brought home some of our new Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread – OMG it’s like mom’s pumpkin chiffon pie! So delicious. I’m hoping to have some on a graham cracker sandwich a little later!

Off to watch Prohibition!

When is cocktail hour? I need to implement that in my day, alcohol or not! Just the idea of looking forward to a specific time for a specific drink would make the day breeze by. Thanks!

P.S. I caught up reading your sister’s blog and noticed that cocktail hour is also observed more or less. Now, is it a regional custom or just your family’s tradition? Hope you don’t mind me asking!

P.S.S. You’ve got a nice family!

Some people (like my family) call cocktail hour “happy hour.” It’s a fun family tradition on the weekends :)

17 KathEats October 13, 2011 at 1:15 pm

It’s just like happy hour – the hour before dinner time. It often includes drinks and sometimes appetizers, but not always. Sometimes you can just gather for cocktail hour and chat or do a puzzle!

The Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread looks awesome. As does the whole meal.

Great eats in this post!

Ha, you just can’t win! If she had said, “we ate the same amount,” then some people would complain that she was starving her husband. Instead, she’s apparently calling him fat (which he clearly is not). This seems to be a silly thing to take away from the overall post.

Reply

39 Tricia October 12, 2011 at 10:02 pm

I agree Bridget! Between this and a million beers some people are painting Kath as such a mean wife… It seems to me that she just tells it how it is. I am sure that if Matt has a problem with it he knows how to speak ;)

Reply

40 Lisa October 12, 2011 at 10:16 pm

@Tricia I could care less if Matt has a problem or not… read my comment, its unhealthy to always be noting portion sizes, especially those that are not your own IMO, why not just say we both enjoyed the meal.
@Kath I personally hate it when someone makes a comment that I had seconds, or didn’t eat as much… seems unhealthy, I am sure there are many people that suffer from disordered eating reading this blog, and these kind of comments can really impact peoples views and perceptions of what is healthy and normal. I think you may not realize how this may impact your readers. I for one, don’t note my husbands portion sizes, he is an adult and doesn’t need me watching over him or recording every morsel that hits his mouth.

@Bridget… how do you know what I “take away” from the post? Seems “silly” that because I comment on one part, you assume that is my take away. I read plenty of blogs with plenty of take always and don’t comment on every aspect.

43 Erin October 13, 2011 at 12:14 am

I do note my husband’s portion size. I don’t pay attention because I’m concerned with how much he eats. I’m much more concerned with the TYPE of food he eats. But when we first got married I didn’t realize how easy it was to just eat what he eats. Since I’m smaller than him, that was not a good plan! Since then I pay attention. He and I have different body sizes and should NOT be eating equal portions. Anyway, everyone takes things differently. When I read about Matt’s portion size, I didn’t dwell on it but I kind of thought to myself, “Hmm, maybe I can feed my own husband all vegetables and just load his plate up!” Ha! Probably wouldn’t work for him.

Reply

44 Jillian October 13, 2011 at 1:31 am

Kath, why did you say that Matt will eat ANYTHING? That seems very unhealthy and an unnecessary thing to say. Do you realize that some of your readers may take this literally and want to start eating *anything*, too? I really wish you would be more careful with your words. I mean, maybe you should just stop typing any words at all, since it is clearly possible for people to perceive almost anything you write in a negative way, however benign. And it will be all your fault, Kath, oh yes, it will.

Obviously you don’t take eating disorders seriously, having a flippant attitude saying that what HLB state has no impact on readers, especially those with disordered eating, is quite naive.

Reply

49 Jillian October 13, 2011 at 2:18 pm

I was anorexic in my late teens/early 20’s, and developed heart problems as a result. I used to have to wear a heart monitor and record everything I did and at what time- it scared the crap out of me and I took responsibility for my life because I didn’t want to live that way anymore. Kath is not responsible for people overreacting or reading into to any little thing she writes whether they have a disorder or not. I took responsibility for my issues, as everyone must do if they want to get past them and live a healthy, balanced life- that’s just how it is, and blaming other people or asking them to tip-toe around you is completely irrational, especially random people on the internet. Her comment about the picture of his plate of food was completely benign. It was a fact, and she is not responsible for people attempting to turn simple facts into something completely skewed.

50 Leah October 13, 2011 at 6:44 pm

@Jillian, first of all, anorexia is a scary disease, and congratulations for finding strategies to deal with it.. I know it must be a life long struggle.

I agree people need to ultimately take responsibilty for themselves, but Kath and any “healthy” living blogger does have a certain degree of responsibility to her readers. How many people are eating smoothies in bowls now? Readers post daily how she impacts their lives in a positive ways! I guess Kath isn’t responsible for the good influences then?
Ofcourse she is!
Ofcourse she influences readers, in many, many good ways, but I am not convinced that her perspective is always healthy either (eg my comment on portion sizing).

She certainly posts healthy food, but I think Kath often refers to less as “good” – eg only a nibble, a bite, or so and so ate “twice” my portion.. not very healthy thinking. Common amoung many women, but few of us are reaching over 1 million women per month.
For example, I think I watched a video once where she weighed oatmeal portions… there is such a thing as taking it too far.
And before the rabid white knight fan readers go bat crazy, note, there is no need to start flaming me, calling me a Negative Nobody, etc, etc. We can discuss these things in a mature manner without all of that useless banter. I think these types of blogs could really benefit from some real conversation.

51 KathEats October 13, 2011 at 6:57 pm

Leah,
(Can’t seem to respond to your lower post).

What I think you are missing here is that this started as a weight loss blog. I was overweight and used tools such as portion control and calorie counting to lose that weight. Those habits stuck with me for a while, hence the oatmeal video. I think one beautiful thing about KERF is if you had time to read all the posts over 4 years, you’d find that I have grown a lot. I no longer measure anything and generally eat whatever I want. I nibble a lot as a means to maintain my weight – there’s really no reason for me to eat an entire cookie, entire savannah bar, 1/4 cup peanut butter in one day. Sometimes I just want a tiny bit – i think the French women would probably say that my nibble is their portion. I am very clear on this blog that I was once overweight, lost it and am now on the up and down journey of maintenance.

Reply

52 Jillian October 13, 2011 at 8:22 pm

It’s not a life-long struggle- I have no issues with eating anymore, I was just referencing that because I wasn’t sure if the “you have a flippant attitude toward eating disorders” comment was directed toward me.

Just wanted to share a little tip I came across (I think from Real Simple magazine?) If you put your phone in a regular old coffee mug, it works like a speaker system! I almost always use my iPhone for music or listening (I do a lot of podcasts while cooking/cleaning) around our house, and it’s so easy to keep the music coming, at a really great volume, and know that my phone is a little more protected because it’s sitting in a little home! And very portable!

I’ll have to try out a yoga podcast- I do yoga at home about 75% of the time instead of taking classes and just have a few DVDs that I rotate. It would be good to switch things up!

We’ve been working our way through Prohibition too. It’s so interesting to see some of the causes that led to it, and hear what was going on from both sides.

Our kitchen is open to our family room, so I stream Pandora over the home theater system through our blu-ray player for music throughout the first floor when cooking, cleaning, or just relaxing. It’s the best when I’m tired of my iTunes playlists.

Yum! I’ve been looking for yummy canned pumpkin recipes. I’ll have to try this one out for me and the boy. Only my husband doesn’t like beans:( Is there a good substitute for beans? I feel like as a family we miss out on so many great recipes because of his aversion. Advice? Please and thank you!

Hmmm…lentils? You might be able to just use chopped veggies like carrots or sweet potato too, but you’d lose the protein factor.

Congrats on the new blog!

Maple pecans and fancy cheese…now that’s my kind of salad ;)

And yes there can be non-alcoholic cocktails…I drink my diet ginger ale out of a wine glass during the week just to have that feel. I try to cut out alcohol during the week to save calories. Your coconut water cocktail sounds great!
