Hi! Hope you’re having a great day!
Diran came to sleep at my place last night and we went to bead late. We woke up at 10 am and I made us pancakes. I practically always use Angela’s Healthy Spelt Pancakes For One recipe. They are delicious, easy and healthy!
I doubled the recipe and added cocoa powder to make chocolate pancakes!
Ingredients I used: 1 cup spelt flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp cocoa powder, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 cup milk.
And drizzled with lots of maple syrup!
I then prepared Diran’s lunch (pasta with primavera sauce) and he went to work at 11:30. I ate a small snack of black grapes along with four o’clock’s maple tea.
This maple tea is so good. I’m really not a fan of black tea but this one is definitely the exception!
Dinner was some lunch oats. It was my first time experimenting with salty oats and it was quite good. I am still more of a sweet breakfast oats kind of girl but it was a nice different meal!
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 2/3 cup milk (I use almond milk)
- 1/3 cup strained tomatoes
- 1 cup frozen vegetables (I used Thai style mix)
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 tsp espelette chili pepper (I use piment de Sainte-Béatrix)
- 1 tbsp grated Romano cheese (Vegans: skip the cheese or use nutritional yeast)
- Salt, pepper to taste
Directions: Put all ingredients in a pot over medium heat. Mix well, bring to a bowl and reduce to medium-low heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring often, until desired consistency. Put into a bowl and add your choice of toppings.
My toppings were:
- 1 tsp Renée’s Gourmet roasted red pepper vinaigrette
- 1 tbsp sliced green olives
- 1 tbsp sunflower seeds, for some crunch
- A little more grated Romano and black pepper
After lunch, I went to get my repaired cell phone at Telus Mobility but forgot to bring the charger for the phone they lent me! So I have to go again tomorrow! I came home at 6:30 and was quite hungry.
I made some Uncle Ben’s Natural Select Spanish Style rice along with steamed carrots.
Sometimes simple meals are just delicious. My mother used to buy this rice and I fell in love with it. I don’t eat it very often because it is white rice but when I do, it feels comforting since it was something my mother used to make! I never ate eat somewhere else than at home, so I think I really associate the taste with her.
Now I’m off for some sewing: I have to dress like Elvis Presley for my initiations for university and I have to add some sequins to a white belt!
Have a great evening,
