These Haagen-Daz comercials found their way to my computer while I was watching The Office Finale. (The Office is over! Sniff.) Anyway, I loved them both! And now, thanks to the successful marketing of Haagen-Daz, not only do I want ice cream, I also want to go back to Rome, cook Italian food, and watch Swan Lake. Le sigh.
Easter Friday! One of the few Fridays of the year that is completely free from any penitential acts, and, in fact, should be treated like a Sunday! Feast! Eat meat! Have dessert after every meal! The Lord has truly risen!
(And your probably wondering, “great, what is with the half-eaten croissant?” Well, I forgot to take a picture before I ate it, and the crumbs look so flaky, you get a better idea of how wonderful it was.)
Do you like cottage cheese? I don’t know if you do or not, but it seems like people who like cottage cheese, love cottage cheese. And people who hate cottage cheese, detest cottage cheese. There is no middle of the road, or so it seems. I am in the lovers-of-cottage-cheese-camp, although I will admit that I hated it until I was a freshman in college. Then, for some bizarre reason, my palate changed and now I love it! So if you’re a hater of cottage cheese, I am sorry, today’s meal involves a lot of it.
This meal is very simple, and yummy! It could work for breakfast, but I usually eat this for lunch or as a light dinner. Take 1 cup of cottage cheese, add 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy. It is so yummy! I think it tastes like apple pie, or strudel, or blintz. I’ve never tried warming it, but I am sure it would taste good warm too!
Today’s meatless meal is also vegan! It is a carrot soup with tahini and chick peas via Smitten Kitchen. I haven’t made this one yet myself, but I have been wanting to for a while. Enjoy! (And tell me how you liked it if you make it! Smitten Kitchen always has the most amazing recipes.)
It’s a beautiful day! I think I see some wine tasting in my future, a little art, and perhaps a comet? Who knows!
You probably thought I forgot your meatless meal for Friday, but I didn’t!
Today’s meal is picture-less, because I am going to be lame like that today. But trust me it is yummy. I call it, Egg With Rice and Corn, my roommate introduced it to me (she got it from a monastery in France).
First, make some rice. Follow the directions on the package, you’ll do just fine. Try brown rice for extra, healthy bonus points.
Next, heat up some canned corn, or frozen corn (it doesn’t matter which, but frozen corn has more nutrients in it and less salt).
Finally, when you rice is cooked and your corn warmed, gently fry and egg over-easy in a little butter or coconut oil (or to your taste if you don’t like runny eggs, I think over easy-tastes best here and you’ll see why in a minute).
Then put a scoop of rice in a bowl, followed by a scoop of corn (drained of course), then on top put your fried egg. Garnish with a few chives or green onion. Sprinkling a little salt and pepper on top and, viola, your meatless meal for Friday. Once you break the yolk on the egg it mixes with the rice and the corn and the salt and pepper, and it’s just oh, so good. . .
Okay, so to make up for forgetting last Friday’s meatless meal, I am giving you three meatless dinner ideas today from three of my favorite foodies!
First up, a mushroom and leek quiche from Smitten Kitchen. (This one makes my mouth water!)
Next, shrimp tacos from The Pioneer Woman. (Mmmmm, shrimp.)
And Finally, Korean pancakes (they’re savory!) from Dinner A Love Story! (Totaly making these tonight!)
I promised meatless meal ideas on Fridays, didn’t I? And I think I missed last week. And I would have missed today, but lucky for you I remembered. Unlucky for you, however, you are going to have to wait a little longer for today’s meatless meal – I am still cooking up a few thoughts.
About a week ago I was craving something different for dinner. Something soupy, but Asian. After mulling it over on the way to work, I decided that I was craving Pho – Vietnamese beef soup. After texting back and fourth with my Pho happy friend, I came up with some ideas and googled a recipe. I found Faux Pho at Epicurious which was perfect, I didn’t have to make my own beef stock (not that I wouldn’t have loved to make my own beef stock, I just didn’t have time that week). It was so good!
