I had used all the dark chocolate chips in the trail mix I made last week so I subbed some frozen blueberries. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. The mixture turned out pretty thick and didn't pour. I scooped the mixture into my skillet, but put them to close and they turned into a big blob of pancake. To save it, I scooped it all into a baking dish and just baked at 350 for about 15 minutes and had one big pancake pie. The house smelled really good, like baking bread or something. Ok, so I don't really know what my house would smell like if I were baking bread as I can't remember ever doing such... Anywho, this is what the finished product looked like.
Not pretty, but tasted good. A little maple syrup over the top and voila! Dinner. I like to have breakfast for dinner, don't you?
I got up a midnight last night because I couldn't sleep. I realized I didn't have anything for lunch today. I found another recipe on Pinterest for curried quinoa and had all the ingredients to make it. I got a big bag of Vidalia onions over the weekend so I diced and cooked one first, then added my quinoa and water. Boil, reduce, simmer, add seasonings and cover for about 15 minutes. I added a can of chickpeas because I love them, but the dish wasn't very colorful, so I added a can of kidney beans, too. It tasted pretty darn good for lunch today. If I had had any greens I would have cooked them and added them, but I haven't been to the grocery or farmer's market in weeks so I was just working with what I had.
Come to think of it, I ate like a vegan all day! Banana for breakfast, curried quinoa for lunch, and veeg pancakes for dinner! That's pretty good. I'm not a vegan, or a vegetarian for that matter, but I try and I hope to be a vegetarian someday. I like cheese, though, and yogurt and honey and lots of other non-vegan things, so I will probably never be vegan. I just want to try to make an impact in my carbon footprint. I drive a sports car and don't get 40mpg so I try to make up for it in the food I eat.
