OMG here I am again!

Look at me go… 2 days in a row.

And look at the rhyme…. I should be a rapper in no time.

Okay, I’m done.

I have done nothing but cooked lately, and I love it!

So far today I’ve made:

  • French Toast
  • French Fries
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Apple Sauce
  • Pumpkin Purée
  • Pumpkin Bread
  • Cinnamon Pumpkin Seeds

I really wish I had a reason for all this, but I don’t.

Actually, here’s my reason: I wanted to.

And you know what makes me even happier? I used the recipes as guidelines and I mainly went with the flow.

Now if you’re cooking for someone important, i.e. Beyoncé, please follow a recipe. Unless you’re Julia Child or something, then do your own thing. But if you’re just cooking at home for yourself or people you really know, go ahead and go with the flow. If the people truly love you they won’t mind… that much.

I really have been enjoying this new found love of cooking.

P.S

All I did for the pumpkin purée was get a small baby pumpkin (those ones that are like 5×5)  cut it in half, gut it, cut it into fifths, place in a baking sheet, put in oven at 350º for 40 minutes, then I blended it with water (add a little water at a time, and I can’t give an amount because once again I didn’t measure)

Here’s the thing

I am the worlds worst blogger.

I have had nothing to blog about, so I haven’t.

I still don’t have anything to blog about, but here I am… attempting.

Nothing much has happened lately, and nothing exciting will probably happen tomorrow either.

This seems like a very negative blog post so we’ll cheer it up.

I’ve made a discovery… here it is… Trader Joe’s is the best place ever. Because I’ve recently discovered Trader Joes, I’ve rediscovered that cooking is fun and cheaper.

I wanted to share twoHave you  new recipes that I’ve enjoyed lately.

“Cereal”

  1. Sliced Almonds
  2. coconut milk
  3. rasperries
  4. sliced banana

I’d give portion sizes but I don’t uses portion sizes… I’d say about a cup of almonds. 3/4 cup. Go crazy with the raspberries and bananas… I do.

“Stir Fry”

  1. Trader Joe’s Stir Fry Mix.
  2. 1 Cup riced cauliflower

I like to cook them separately. I sauté the stir fry mix in olive oil, and I cook the cauliflower in vegetable broth.

I’m horrible at writing recipes, oh well.

Are you guys watching the debate? That’s what is on right now.

I hope you’re educating yourself… as best as you can with these two.

Pray for our country, it needs it.

Have a lovely night!
