The calm before the storm… one last super nutritious meal before all the fun begins tomorrow!
For cocktail hour, I opened a second Cascal drink from the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program.
These really do make great mocktails. I love the fermentedness, and they have great flavor. I think I ultimately prefer kombucha because I don’t really like sweet drinks and these are a bit sweeter, but I would buy these if I saw them in a deli or grocery store café.
Tonight’s goal was to use up our fridge. Somehow we ended up with a lot of extra veggies (canceled recipes, unexpected meals out) and a big thing of brown rice that Karen brought over.
This led to the following –
Roasted sweet potatoes + turnips (400* for 30 minutes or so) drizzled in maple
Pan-seared bok choy seasoned with garlic gold oil, salt and lots of black pepper
And Mushroom + Spinach Fried Rice!
For the rice, we sautéed shitakes until they began to brown, then stirred in all that spinach and cooked till it was wilted. Then stirred in about a cup of cooked brown rice and finally cracked in 2 eggs and stirred them in until they were scrambled throughout. I think there was also some soy sauce, salt and pepper added at some point.
It was all delicious!
THIS IS A TEST OF THE EMERGENCY BROADCASTING SYSTEM
Are these two prepared for the Montana cold?
They went on a 30 minute walk around their neighborhood at freezing temps in their new Lands End 40% off Christmas Sale coats.
They came back hot!
My new coat is awesome! I originally ordered it in pink on a whim since I always choose black and neutrals, but one hour in that pink coat and I felt like a bubblegum baby girl wearing pink sleepers. I exchanged it for black and like it so much more. It’s super warm! I haven’t had a coat with a good hood since I was that baby girl wearing pink sleepers!
I’m so excited to get to eat this dough ball in 5 minutes, along with a cup of Pero and my Raw Shark Texts weirdo book!
