So I don't really have a name for this "stew" of sorts, but let's call it:
Lentil-licious Blackeyed Pea Stew
- 1 can of corn (DON'T drain)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes (I used Italian stlye)
- 1 can of chicken broth
- 1 onion, chopped
- Random squash, chopped
- 3 big carrots, chopped
- 3/4c chopped cauliflower
- half of a 16oz bag of lentils
- 1-8oz package of blackeyed peas (EDITED: This was my first time to use blackeyed peas, so I forgot to add this before...These were "shelled, steamed and ready-to-eat" blackeyed peas. You could just use a whole 16oz bag of lentil instead.)
- 3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- Garlic and Onion powder, to taste
Dinner in the making...love it!
And it turns into this marvelous stew that was a HUGE hit with my brother, dad, mom and all...If you are trying to satisfy meat eaters and non-meat eaters in the same meal, use lentils. They have such an amazingly hearty taste/texture.
I had some leftovers today for lunch atop a mashed sweet potato...adorned with melted cheese!
Genisoy Cinnamon Streusel Sweet Crisps
A little high in saturated fat for my liking, but I still tossed them into my little hand held shopping basket and gave them a try.
The ingredient list wasn't too bad:
Wowzers. These were gone before I knew it. They are so amazingly good. Crispy, light and airy, yet coated with a thick drizzle of what tastes like "white chocolate" that gives a substantial sweetness to each delightful bite!
I received a coupon for some free Country Choice Organic products a while back, but have not had the best of luck finding their tempting products in my area. Until yesterday, when I stumbled upon these tantilizing cookies!
Each cookie is about the size of a homemade cookie, being a bit smaller than I had expected; but the amazingly dense, moist and perfectly sweet taste makes up for that. These serve as the perfect way to end a meal on a sweet note. MMM!
Organic, 100% understandable ingredient list. Thank you.
And, of course, the star of the show! :D
I gobbled up this bad boy in no time...
The oatmeal raisin cookies were also calling out my name because I am quite the sucker for a good oatmeal raisin cookie. Yum!
As you can see, the cookie is only a little bit bigger than the end of a coke can. However, it only contains 100 calories, so it is a pretty good size, for what you are getting! This oatmeal raisin cookie had a nice and dense oat-filled base that combines with cane syrup, oil and honey to create a delightfully dense and moist treat. It is further enchanced by the addition of coconut and chewy raisins. Sooo good!
I can't wait to have these on hand at school when I need a mid-class snack to get me through the day...
I also got these two bars yesterday! :D I have tried the Honest Foods Choco Peanut Butter Bar before, but the Luna Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie has yet to grace my lips...
Egg whites with chili powder and some mini waffles...
Kemps Frozen Yogurt White Chocolate Raspberry Parfait
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 packet truvia
- 1T Peanut Butter
- a drizzle of chocolate syrup
I mixed it all together and let it camp out in the freezer for about 1.5-2 hours. Whoa baby...
And that's a wrap! Now go get your cereal on, thanks to CinciMom.
