The Coffee: Happy Movember! Is your boyfriend, husband, brother, uncle, father participating in Men’s Health awareness month? The men in my office are, can’t wait to see the pro growers (and not so pro) waltzing around trying to not look like pedifile bros. Yes, the Mo Bros are about and I fully support. Let’s face it; females get plenty of chance to support our health through nonsense Facebook posts (the what color underwear are you wearing trend etc).
The Cream and Sugar: The ironic part about this post is not my recent adaptation of cooking crazy good meals, it was what I was for Halloween in relation (you’ll see in a moment). Also, apologies for the
shitty great crackberry photos.
Pumpkin Chocolate chip cookies, I have no idea what recipe I used, I used like eight different ones. Here is what I learned: pumpkin from a can makes them cakey so you must add more sugar than flour or else they feel like muffins. Or you can
cheat by mix Betty Crocker’s Pumpkin Spice mix with choco chips ;).
I made this next meal mostly to use these burgers sitting in my freezer, but I ended up pretty impressed. (Sorry I started to eat it before taking the photo).
Pan fried bbq Sirloin burgers with carmelized onion smothered in swiss cheese with oven-roasted carrots /asparagus /peppers /onions /sweet potatoes seasoned with rosemary, basil and EVOO. Cook the onions separately in a pan til soft, cook burger to desired temp. Veggies take about 30 mins in oven at 350.
I love couscous. I could eat a whole box in one sitting. This next meal is obviously overwhelmed by the heavenly substance.
Oven-roasted Atlantic Salmon with same above type veggies and parmesan couscous. Couscous takes about 5 mins, which is super convenient when you are focusing on the temperature of salmon. Veggies take about 30 mins in the oven at 350.
AND thus, here is what I was for Halloween: The three little pigs and my bf as the big bad wolf. Hence #fatty status
