Tasty Tidbits

This is totally how Tink is! I found it on Pinterest & had to take a pic to send to W. (He doesn't have Pinterest...guess that's for the better.) She seriously will be laying there, practically asleep, & then get up & dash into another room, only to dash back. Crazy cats... 

We tried another new beer this week! Atwater Brewery in Detroit makes this VooDoo Vator. It was a dark beer (a doppelbock), but didn't have that smoky flavor some do.  I was glad - that's the main thing I dislike about dark beers. It was great to split, especially because it has a high alcohol content (ABV 8.5%).

This weekend is our church's 50th celebration. We're having a dinner tonight & then a special church service tomorrow. It should be a great time!

Here's what we've been eating in the last week:

  • Coconut Peanut Butter Green Smoothies
  • Veggie & egg sandwiches on asiago bagels - W made me breakfast! :-)
  • Tropical Granola
  • Minimalist Baker's Peanut Butter Flaxseed Pancakes - I was impressed with how light & fluffy these were, while also being filling. They re-heated well in the toaster, too.
  • Stovetop oatmeal with chopped apples
  • Bananas + pb


  • Baked portobella caps
  • Sauteed kale
  • Kath Eats Real Food's Sweet Potato Gnocchis - I made a full batch of these & froze some for meals in the future. I wish I had doubled the recipe because once I was in the roll/slice/boil/ice/freeze process, it would've been easy to keep going! They were super creamy & I can't wait to eat the rest!
  • Pizza - 3 kinds:
    • pumpkin dijon sauce with roasted squash, carmelized onions, & apple chunks
    • bbq sauce with carmelized onions, chopped peppers, & mushrooms
    • peso with roasted squash, carmelized onions, & chopped peppers
  • Leftovers
  • Black bean & roasted squash enchiladas
  • Green salad
Dinner at Mom & Pops' (choir night)
  • Cornbread stuffed squash
  • Roasted cauliflower, onion, cranberry medley with balsamic vinaigrette
  • Jalapeno cornbread
  • Green salad with chickpeas & roasted red peppers
  • Date night at Lancaster Brewing Co.
