this recipe from One Good Thing by Jillee and didn't change a single thing the first time. my butter was just a touch too cold, though. it was still ridiculously good. the next time, i made sure the butter was nice and soft and used 1/2 cup honey instead of the 1/3 cup Jillee called for. one very important thing that i've already learned is to be sure you put your bread batter in a very warm place to rise - if it doesn't rise enough, it just isn't as good! i feel like a whole new world just opened up with this bread..
quick product reviews!
next up! trader joe's crunchy black and white rice rolls
these were great! only 45 calories for a pretty good sized roll, vegan and gluten free. there was much by way of "black" rice, but i don't think that's much to complain about - just an observation. the rolls are very lightly sweetened and make a nice light snack. i think it would be lovely with some peanut butter! the texture was nice - puffed rice cereal meets rice cake meets rice crispy treat. i would get these again once in awhile as a fun munchie, or a lighter-than-theater-popcorn movie treat.
what have i been eating besides ridiculous amounts of turkey sandwiches?
my mother-in-law's recipe for delicious zucchini lasagna! recipe hopefully coming soon!
and crispy paleo fish nuggets : just pieces of cod dipped in a little egg, then seasoned almond flour, and shallowly fried in sunflower oil. tangy, creamy slaw on the side!
i've also been homemaking tons of lip balms and lotion bars: it's so fun, smells amazing, and makes my lips feel lovely!
finally, the grand finale! monkeyman's lunches! (i know, it's not that exciting, but that's quite alright!)
the crazy polka-dot burn i obtained while making chunky chili
said chunky chili lunch! clockwise from chunky chili: beef chili; carrots with peanut butter; blueberry greek yogurt; hard boiled eggs, brown rice; freeze dried apple snacks; whole wheat fig snack bar; and a chocolate raspberry protein-style bar
clockwise from boiled eggs: hard boiled eggs with paula deen's house seasoning; broccoli topped with one chicken/mozzerella/artichoke sausage and one hot link; gf raspberry shortcake cookies; whole wheat raspberry fig bar; freeze dried apple snack; carrots with peanut butter; blackberries with a little sugar; and a strawberry greek yogurt
berry blast juice two or three times a week to drink on the way to work. we get this from costco and sky loves the thick, tart juice
clockwise from yogurt: strawberry greek yogurt; hardboiled eggs; broccoli with paula deen's house seasoning and spritzed with olive oil; leftover zuchini lasagna; whole wheat blueberry fog bar; peanut butter with carrots; blackberries with a little sugar (looks like a lot of sugar, but it's not!); and cinnamon flavored almonds.
