My roomie and I have begun to clean our apartment a little bit. What does this mean? I got rid of a lot of bananas that we had in the freezer that, let’s face it, I was not going to eat any time soon. They were really freezer burned and I have not wanted ice cream in a really long time. I think that’s partly due to my slow eating style. Ice cream me,to too fast for me to enjoy it. Now a sandwich? I can milk that for a while!
This week I’m showing my eats from Monday. Two sandwiches and a new way I’m going to make my oats from now on. Thanks to Arman for the idea to take oatmeal to another level of creamy! As always, credit goes to Jenn for the original What I Ate Wednesday link up.
Oatmeal and oranges. What’s in the bowl you may ask? Oats, cocoa powder, protien powder, coconut flour, pumpkin spice PB (it was on sale) and raisins. Seriously the coconut flour gives is a batter like consistency. I picked up a couple staples from the bulk section of my co-op (let’s be real, I’m not a hipster, I would get this at Aldi’s if they had it) and have decided to throw it into my oats. New flour, new texture, excellent!
Spinach wrap with southwest vegetable soup. What’s in the wrap? Chickpea and avocado salad, spinach, onions and sprouts. I have no idea what makes the soup southwest or if they eat soup in the southwest. If I lived in the southwest maybe I would eat more banana ice cream…
Hoagie with roasted butternut squash. What’s on the sandwich? Well when cleaning out our freezer I found some chipotle sausages from Field Roast. I hate spicy food but hate to throw things away. This meant I needed something cool to soothe the chipotle burn. Manchego cheese to the rescue! Spinach, tomato and sprouts may also have made their appearance on there but the true start of the show was the French bread. Oh my stars for the love of Jesus! These rolls from CTB are the most fluffy pieces of delicious I have had in a while! The butternut was roasted to perfection if I don’t say so myself.
I found a bunch of reduced Christmas truffle at Aldi’s that were a must buy. Dollar fifty for the box. Heck yes!
There you have it, what sustained this runner and bageler on Monday.
Do you eat fast or slow?
Ice cream when the temperature is single digits?
