I woke up yesterday feeling a little risky in the kitchen and I decided to try something I had been seeing all over blog land. Savory oats, I was hesitant, but I think it went well. I made some hot grain cereal with water, smart balance, salt and pepper. I topped it with an over easy egg and a little fiesta cheese. On the side, I had the rest of the grapes from Saturday. I must say, it took some getting used to but I think I liked it by the end. I think I prefer grits or polenta but I will probably do this again.
While the dear husband was out doing his long run, I did the house cleaning and a yoga dvd. After all of that was done, I was hungry already so I had a fage with a drizzle of honey. I had really been wanting this and when I saw it so cheap at Whole Foods on Saturday, I knew it was fate. Oh boy, was it ever tasty.
After my snack, I did a little girlie maintenance and then we headed out. For lunch we ate at Tropical Smoothie. I ordered the hummus among us sandwich. It was 9 grain bread with hummus, lettuce, tomato, basil, provolone, red onion, roasted red and green peppers and fresh basil. It was pretty tasty and surprisingly filling.
After some errands, we got a starbucks and walked around Target for a bit. I got a soy cinnamon dolce latte, my favorite in the fall. It didn’t seem to be perking me up at all so about halfway through, I stopped drinking it.
Once we arrived home, we did a little more work around the house and then prepared dinner. I made grilled chicken that I had marinated in tamari sauce, honey, ginger, garlic and a dash of thai sweet chili sauce. On the side we had roasted alexia brand roasted potatoes and kale that I sauteed in olive oil, garlic, onion, crushed red pepper, a dash of nutmeg, salt and pepper. It was a hearty and satisfying Sunday dinner.
After dinner, I had a little dessert of one caramel kiss, one pumpkin spice kiss and one candy corn kiss.Then, I had a second candy corn one. I really liked them, what great flavors they come up with for fall! After dessert, we finished up the housework and relaxed a bit. Ah, farewell to the weekend.
QOTD: Is anyone familiar with ceramic knives? I am in the market for a new chef’s knife and have heard great things about them. I have a Henkel ever sharp now and I think it is time to retire it.
