What a tease Thanksgiving Break was. It was one week that lasted what seemed like five minutes. But at least it was a good five minutes. 🙂
I got to see some of my favorite people…
my sister and cousins
We got a few good pictures before someone decided to take over camera business for the evening….wonder who that could be?
Ha ha. At this point pictures started to look more like this:
I’ll spare you the lamp, soda can, and carpet pictures. What a stinker. 🙂
In case you still have any leftover turkey, I must guide you all to perfect way to make a brand new meal out of it. I’ve mentioned it before on the blog, but it’s definitely fitting right now…
Janetha’s Pumpkin Enchiladas (with turkey)
uhh, so good.
These are nice and veggie filled, but I always like to add another veggie side. That night it was sauteed mushrooms and spinach: a combo I’ve been loving! Anyone else adore mushrooms? I can eat them raw or cooked and I’m in Heaven.
For What I Ate Wednesday, here are a few more recent eats:
Another veggie love as of late? Brussel sprouts! They are perfectly in season right now and I am actually craving them! Normal, totally normal.
soft eggs, roasted butternut squash, and brussels
Back to baking in the kitchen..
I did a variation of Paige’s Coconut Blueberry Bars, which turned out to taste like a vanilla cake. Um yeah, gonna be making that again soon. I subbed oat flour for the almond meal but kept everything else the same.
cashews and prunes. Haha, what an old lady snack, but hey it’s a tasty one at that. No shame.
leftover Thanksgiving ham, roasted butternut squash, and brussels. AWESOME dipping sauce—>tbsp mustard, tbsp nutritional yeast, tbsp milk, dash of salt and pepper. So easy and goooood with veggies!
soft-serve vanilla protein ice cream variation with half blended cottage cheese/half greek yogurt and 2 tbsp pudding powder added
The good news is that this week is already flying by, which will leave me with two more weeks before Winter Break. I am definitely looking forward to five glorious weeks involving absolutely no school. YES.
Have a great Wednesday!
