I am loving October and all this wonder fall food. A hot breakfast on a cool morning hits the spot. Today, I made a mushroom and kale tofu scramble. I added in one crumbled Field Roast Apple Sage Sausage to the pan for extra flavor. It was just what I needed to get my day started after a grueling workout.
The rain and cool weather persisted through the morning into lunch. I thought soup would be appropriate, real home made soup, not the other stuff.
I made my Chicken-less Noodle. Two thinly sliced Gardein chicken pieces, chunky carrots, kale, celery and onion with a simple miso and no chicken broth make this simple soup, super tasty. I used a small handful of whole grain angel hair pasta as my noodles. I spiced it up with lots of Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning and herbs de provence. I took the whole pot out to cool!
After lunch, I worked and then ran errands. I came home with thoughts of cinnamon and apples in my head. I remembered my Apple Cinna-bean bars that I made earlier this year. The recipe is still in the testing phase. But I will admit, for a healthy treat, they taste pretty amazing.
Did I mention the crumble topping?
Mya arrived home hungry, she had last night’s leftovers as an after school snack. It was half a delicata squash. These are her absolute favorite.
I cooked up a quick and easy dinner. A beefless green bean stir-fry drizzled in a sesame garlic sauce.
I loved this meal, but I was a little carless when I was preparing it. I still am feeling the pain. I dropped my sliced onions into the heating coconut oil, and it splattered in my face, on my neck and directly in my left eye. I hope my eye is better tomorrow, it is still a little hazy in a spot. Another lessoned learned. I am used to cooking in my cast iron, I used a regular stainless steel pan tonight, it heated much faster than my cast iron. Mya covered my burns in aloe from our plant, I will put another layer on tonight before bed. It was a beautiful and delicious dinner once I got to eat!
Mya had her apple cinna-bean bar for dessert with some vanilla soy ice cream on top. She knows how to eat! I think I am going to go have a slice right now, with a nice hot cup of decaf on the side.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
