It’s quite lonely around here! Just me, Kanz, El Tigre and some camel crickets in the basement.
Afternoon snacks included Cville Cluster
2 wedges from an authentic daily orange (!)
And the difficult decision between dog treat and 2-day-old Savannah bar. I chose the Savannah, which was still quite amazing despite being a little goopy in its package (FYI, this was in our donate pile not from the counter)
I am not doing a great job bringing quality afternoon snacks to the bakery! Since we eat dinner late now, I usually do need a snack, but bread and sugary sweets – no matter how ‘real food’ they are – are getting old! I love my milky raspberry snacks, but I also need to stock up on some trail mix, fresh fruit, yogurts and the like. The #1 reason my snack quality has suffered? I haven’t been to the grocery store in 3 weeks!! We’ve been suriving off of bakery pasture eggs, bakery organic milk, bakery local cucs and peppers, bakery frozen berries + bananas, bakery bread, 3-week-going yogurt, pantry staples, garden veggies, Karen, and dinners out. Don’t ask me how! I think I’m going to go to Whole Foods tomorrow…
Tonight we whipped up a quick dinner and we’ve been chilling out at our respective computers ever since
The highlight: Twin Oaks More Than Tofu Spicy Thai with Quinoa and Amranth. This was a freebie from Benji at Twin Oaks and it was quite delicious!!
Ingredient #2 – Back to the Roots Mushroom Farm #2. The company sent me a second one as a thank you so I got to a’growin’! They just poofed white
sperm dust onto my table, so I know they’re ready for eating (that’s how you tell – kinda gross!)
We sauteed the tofu, shrooms and some leftover eggplant together
Along with a side of garden greens, basil and bleu cheese. Flavorings included Liquid Smoke, Worcestershire and red pepper flakes. And salt and pepper. ALWAYS salt and pepper!
Beverage of the evening: Cascal. I love these!
Have a cozy night!
