Don't you just love those weekends when you are super-productive, but not exhausted? I've had one of those weekends. I've caught up on email and snail mail correspondence, done some tidying up and filing around the house, nearly completed my Christmas shopping, wrapped all of the Christmas presents I've purchased, made a (crustlesss) tofu pumpkin pie, done some laundry, mopped the floors, washed mountains of dishes, and finished a book! I've also been cooking and eating, of course. :)
One of my impulse buys at the Wedge on Friday:
Pineapple guavas! I was sold on their bubblegum-like fragrance -- I had to give a few a try.
Guavas are a little strange . . . sweet and tart, with an unusual texture. They may not be on my grocery list on a regular basis, but they were worth a try!
I realize this looks remarkably like the batches of soy milk I've made with my Soyabella, but I had to post about almond milk . . . because it tastes SO good, and it takes even less time to make than soy milk. Plus, almonds are a natural source of calcium and iron -- bonus!
Falafel for dinner last night:
I baked my falafel this time . . . ew. I will stick to pan-frying from now on, because my oven baked falafels just got dried out and crumbly. My salad (romaine, tomato, artichoke, olives, oil, and vinegar,) was spectacular, however!
The beginnings of holiday baking:
Chai shortbread dough, off to the freezer for a couple of weeks. See you soon, chai shortbread!
Rescuing falafel for lunch today:
I pan-fried the falafel today, with much better results. Sweet potato fries and more guavas on the side. (I'm full!)
I still can't believe it's only 4:15 or so . . . what will I do with the rest of my day? We shall see . . . !
