Dinner for lastnight+tonight: Minestrone Soup and Olive Garden Breadsticks

Minestrone Soup Recipe
Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks

Amazing! the soup is basically vegan which works good for me since im trying to eat less meat unless its local/organic/etcetcetc...also the only change i made was 1) I didnt have 2 veggies on the list (the zuchinni and onion) but i used dried onion and it worked fine. and 2) I used dried beans instead of canned since i have so many of them, but make sure to soak them the night ahead other wise they turn out kinda crunchy...i found out the hard way.
Despite the beans, the soup turned out amazing!
 
Make sure to have time for the breadsticks to rise otherwise you will have HEAVY breadsticks and eating one will feel like you just ate 5....
 
Great dinner=great leftovers for tonight:)

Breakfast Jan 8th, 2013 and decided on a language!

Breakfast this morning was: ground up almonds, walnuts, and oats mixed with lemons and apples and topped with rice milk. SO GOOD.!

In other news I have decided on the language I'm going to learn this year.....Norwegian!!

Whats for dinner?: Jan 6th, 2013

Tonights dinner is simple, since im just getting over a migrane that....well...lets just say it left me dehydrated, it was that bad...ANYWAYS...dinner:)

Simple. Savory. To the point.

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Yield: 1 sandwich.

1/2 Avocado
1 hardboiled egg
Just enough salt to taste and pepper if you choose

Mix all together and smash onto freshly toasted bread...mmm.

PS this is alot quicker if you have an egg that is already boiled:)

no pics, sorry but im sure you can imagine what it looks like:)

YAY! ...plastic water bottle ban!!

Lets just say that I am overjoyed about this town's decision. Yes, people could go to the next town over and get their bottled water, but that is not the point. The point is...we are finally getting somewhere. Even if it is a tiny step...its still in the right direction:)

On another note, but kinda the same...A 16 yr old girl is asking the UK to ban plastic grocery bags...I say yes, yes, YES!

In other news tonight's dinner is at a teriyaki restaurant, so no recipes, BUT since my new years resolution is to try staying away from processed foods, i might just have to go vegetarian at this dinner...then again maybe not...im still debating...

Whats for dinner? Jan 3rd, 2013

 
 
mmmm:) Since i didnt have onions, i substituted onion powder, and it was just as good. If you are using dried ground ginger instead of fresh, use 1/16 tsp since it is more concentrated.

Happy New Year:)


New years resolutions:
  • Instead of focusing on just "no sugar," this year will be that but more in a "does my body NEED that"....im not explaining this well...lets just say less processed artificial foods and the more natural simple foods, the better. Also being kinder to my body and more diligent about staying away from my food allergies...:/ :)
  • Learn a second language. Still stuck between french and italian....ill probably end up with french knowing me...lol

 
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
