I may be the worst maker of pancakes ever. Seriously. It shouldn’t be that hard to flip a round doughy disk over. -_- I pretty much want to officially give up on all things pancake and I would if I didn’t still have two boxes of mix left.
This morning I woke up bright and early and made some failed blueberry pancakes with Fiber One Pancake Mix, frozen blueberries, almond butter, and maple syrup. Yes one of them I even ended up folding over in a sort of omelet way. They tasted fine but I want them to look pretty!
Sadly this hardly held me over. =(
Two hours later I remembered why I used to have to go to Starbucks or Hastings to get my chemistry homework/reading done. Studying makes me hungry! So while I read through my microbiology I snacked on a serving of TJ’s Nuts About Raspberries mix. Yum!
I also remembered that another reason I left the house to study was because it’s hard to concentrate with this much cuteness around you! Vincent and Ophelia napped around me all day long making sure I could see them in my peripheral vision. I kept having to put down my book to snap photos!
Even with the snack I was very ready for lunch around noon. I heated up another bowl of roasted vegetable minestrone soup with shaved parmesan, three slices of garlic bread, and some cantaloupe. Hearty yet I still didn’t make it to dinner without snacking. >.< I guess it was just one of those days where I am constantly hungry.
After laying on the couch and reading Harry Potter for a few hours I needed a coffee break! Reading always makes me tried these days. =( A cup of Starbucks Tribute coffee with cream and a defrosted German Chocolate cupcake were enjoyed while I studied my Barista Basics.
The moment I had the thought of “coffee break” I had this song stuck in my head.
Ever heard of this musical? I’d seen it growing up in our local community theater.
It was such a perfect day outside I am a little embarrassed that I was inside all day. I have no lawn chairs to sit on my porch yet and I knew if I tried to walk anywhere I’d end up spending money. I still opened up the screen door and let the kittens breathe in the fresh air. They were pretty psyched they had a squirrel come right up to them!
Around 4pm feeling hunger yet again, I made a small snack of rosemary crisp crackers and Colby cheese.
Eventually I just started making dinner, Danica’s Baked Bacon, Butternut Squash & Polenta Casserole! I’ve never purchased fake bacon before but I really wanted to follow the recipe to the T. Look how funny fake bacon looks! I was quiet surprised it had fake marbled fat.
Finally around 7pm dinner was ready! The casserole turned out a bit…off. I wasn’t able to mash up the butternut squash cubes and I guess the flavor of “bacon” isn’t really my thing. (Duh! Vegetarian!) However when it mixed with the maple syrup I drizzled over my steamed green beans it was quiet scrumptious. I ended up having two pieces!
I hope you all had a lovely spring weekend and holiday. Mine was a little lonely but also enjoyable in it’s relaxation.
P.s. I haven’t ruled out dessert yet. >.> May be enjoying some more yogurt with strawberries!
Do you eat fake meat products? If so, what are your favorites?
