Husband has a dinner meeting tonight so I am eating alone. Which means: nachos for dinner! Tortilla chips, black beans, fresh bell pepper, tomato, onion, cilantro and a sprinkling of daiya left over from the bakesale and a squeeze of lime. Hello!!

bachelorette-style freezer dining: tots? crispy tenders? dumplings? tofu? rice noodles? ..and a cayenne Old Fashioned, for good measure.

I love me some homemade veggie burgers. The homemade part takes prep. Do this when you are not lazy. Then you can be lazy a lot.

Food processor
garlic
onions (already sauteed)
mushrooms (already sauteed)
corn
quinoa
almonds
1 can mixed beans
sea salt
2 tblsp flaxseed soaked in water

Freeze in patties and fry up as needed. I like to eat them with sauteed mushrooms, red onion and lettuce on a vegan bun.
Yum
--

Also simple and delish

zuchinni
mushrooms
peppers
red onion
all fried up in coconut oil

(I choose to believe the hype about coconut oil being awesome for you... mostly because I want it to be true. If you don't buy it use the oil of your choice)

Mix in some quinoa cooked in veggie broth

Fry it all up together for a few minutes
Yum
...

I also enjoy some air popped popcorn with olive oil or coconut oil, salt and pepper. Yeaaa. Not original but yum.

<- I forgot, the Quinoa Veggie Fry benefits from lots and lots of soya sauce. I dig on kikomann.

Since my boyfriend and I have not yet moved in together (soon!), we don't eat dinner together every night. On what we call our "solo nights", my favorite lazy meal is crispy tenders and baked spicy sweet potato fries (with garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, curry powder & cayenne), all dipped in BBQ sauce. I had this tonight actually, mmm.

Packet of ramen with the seasoning + a scoop of white miso + a big squirt of sriracha + a shake of dried basil and chives + frozen peas and corn. Cover with hot water and stir around. Instant salty comfort soup that is way better than just eating it as-is from the packet.

When I finish the last few forkfuls in my bowl, I'll have eaten a whole tin of coconut milk, two onions and half a block of tofu. As well as a bit of broccoli, bit of carrot and far too much pasta. In one meal.

I'm not sure how. And I don't think I'll be able to move for a while.

Oooh, what is that as a recipe?!
p.s., GD, were you at the bakesale briefly on Saturday? I remember you having a thread about making rum balls recently and after I had gone off to have brunch with Rachel there were a bunch sitting on the table when I came back. Have been wondering if it was you!

I'm having a homemade chickpea quinoa burger on lettuce because I'm too lazy to get buns, a side of steamed broccoli, and frozen banana slices dipped in peanut butter/cacao powder melty sauce for dessert.

Erm, it was sort of made-up as I went along, but I sliced two onions and fried them slowly for ages, put in some very thinly sliced carrot that needed using up, put the cubed tofu in until it was browned (I'm rubbish at cooking tofu, but I'm not picky about eating it), added very thinly sliced broccoli, and curry powder, paprika and powdered ginger, stirred it, added a tin of coconut milk and let it simmer while I finished cooking the pasta, til the broccoli was just almost tender.
Ate it on spaghetti because I couldn't be bothered buying noodles. Added soy sauce to the pasta because I forgot to put salt in when I cooked it.
It wasn't as good as I'd hoped; I think it needed different or more spices.

And yes I was at the bakesale. It was a bit awkward- I had wanted to help, but there was only a small table and lots of helpers, and someone I used to know at school but I hadn't seen for years turned up right at the beginning (when I had put out my cupcakes but there wasn't space on the table for rum balls). So I went out for tea with him, then I came back and he didn't seem to want to leave me and I was feeling all shy and awkward so I just put the rumballs on paper plates in the staff area and left. And because I was carrying a jacket and a big tin and was worrying about knocking over soap I don't think I said goodbye.
It was sad that I didn't get to chat with people properly (or meet PPKers!), but at least I know I can carry stuff to a bakesale without dropping it.
I hope no-one thought I was being weird; they all seemed very nice.

Step one: steam some frozen butternut squash
Step two: mix it with leftover chili
Step three: crumble some tortilla chips over the top.
AHHHH YUM.

Ate quite a lot of cereal bars (and a punnet of strawberries mmmmmmm) yesterday afternoon, then accidentally fell asleep about 6pm. When I woke up at 10pm I wasn't in the mood for carbohydrates or proper cooking, so had a tin of chickpeas mixed with a chopped tomato and a little soy sauce and olive oil for dinner.

I am intrigued about the chocolate chip hummus!

Whhhhhaaaaaat? you guys haven't heard about dessert hummus' ?!

1 can of chickpeas drained and rinsed.
2 tablespoons of cashew butter (I just use 1 cause I eat the whole damn batch...)
1-2 Tablespoons of soya milk
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons of sweetener ( I use agave)

Whizz it all up in a food processor till smooth.
Stir in a handful of chocolate chips.

Ta daaaaaaa


You can also do other variations, adding in cocoa powder.. making an oatmeal raisin type one,
in which you just omit the chocolate chips and add in cinnamon and raisins instead.

The one I typed out is a recipe that is essentially from loads of blogs ive seen, except I tried to make it a smidge healthier.
check out chocolate covered katies blog :)

i love buying these pre-made teriyaki sauces at the store. dump over rice. eat.

if i'm feeling fancy, i'll slice off some tofu and fry it up in my cast iron skillet, or cook some frozen edamame.

Currently eating a super weird but super delicious mish-mash of stuff in a bowl: pan-fried Gimme Lean beef topped with steamed peas, broccoli, and kale, a spoon of rice, THEN topped with freshly made Sanctuary dressing and a sprinklin' of nooch.

Luckily both my roommates are away so no one can judge me while I eat this in sweatpants while watching Mad Men.

Oh, finals week. You are doing wonders for my bachelorette meals!
Dinner was steamed kale, broccoli, spinach, corn mixed with some pinto beans and slathered in nooch, tahini sauce, and hot sauce.
Onward to work!

Ok so I did this last night with an extra tablespoon of peanut butter and a smidge of extra sugar. The food processor warmed it up a teeny bit so the chocolate chips melted when I stirred them in. ZOMFG. I'm trying really hard not to eat it all with a spoon for breakfast part two.

Mind officially blown at the idea of dessert hummus. I keep reading the recipe and can't wrap my mind around combining chickpeas with sweet stuff. Clearly it's yummier than it sounds, but I'm still not sure I want to try it.

Last night's bachelorette meal: tofu cubes pan fried with frozen carrot rounds and frozen green beans, chopped garlic and ginger, and tahini miso dressing thrown in at the very end, served over boil-in-the-bag rice. A drizzle of (bottled) lemon juice completed the dish.
