Good eats tonight!!
We started the evening with some cocktails (mostly to numb my horrible aching coffee head!). I had a mini Manhattan made from the drips of Matt’s. Mmmm!! He really does make a great drink. See the first in his “Old Man Drink” series over at Brew and Bake.
Of course, I spoiled my appetite tonight. I must be insane because everyday I always think it won’t happen, but it always does!
I am so lucky getting so many great products to sample! These four scrumptious cereals came in the mail. I cracked open the Sunflower Agave Plus Granola this afternoon and boy it is good! It’s got a nice nuttiness that reminds me of peanut butter from the sunflower seeds and is slightly sweet and super crispy from puffed brown rice pieces and oats.
This bowl was a base of 3 giant strawberries with about 1/2 a cup of soy milk (heated) and about 1/3 cup AgavePlus. Mmm!
This succulent burger wins top 5 of the past year. It was from the last piece of our frozen grass-fed tenderloin. We He ground it himself with our KitchenAid meat grinder! We’ve got a little leftover, so not sure how we’ll use that up.
I topped mine with ketchup, mustard, pickle and avocado.
On the side: Kelsey’s Blue Cheese Slaw. OMG – so good!!!! You know how cake is just a means to serve icing? This slaw is just a means to serve blue cheese! I doubled the recipe and used heaping tbsp of blue cheese and olive oil mayo. I could have eaten double this portion!
And there’s one more little pickle on the side there! I think I kind of overate today. I just feel really full and like I didn’t listen to my hunger and satiety cues very well. The only meal I ate today that I was truly hungry for was my cereal snack, and that’s because I’m always hungry at 5:00! New project for tomorrow, I suppose 🙂
As for me, I’m going to get the house in order and then stay up to watch the newest Office! It’s a rare occasion that I don’t have to get up on Friday morning for Food Lab, so we’re celebrating by watching live.
