Yesterday I mentioned that I baked up some kabocha squash. This one had been sitting in my cupboard for a little while because I had experienced a bit of squash overkill (I know, shocking right? Is that even possible?) so I took a break from it. A break as in like a week but still.
While baking that I decided to roast some asparagus alongside it, as well as throw some of the squash seeds in rather than trashing them. I just threw a handful into the oven, nothing special. They’re tasty though, I don’t know I ever throw them out!
These goods were done a bit earlier than the squash so they got plated first.
Then the plate got madly enhanced by the lovely squash. It’s not quite as neat and tidy looking however… chunks of squash just aren’t the most attractive of foods.
All I did for the entire rest of the day was study. This term has made my life SO boring!
I was excited for my dinner because I cracked open and tried Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus for the first time ever yesterday. O.M.G. Roasted red pepper hummus has always been my preferred flavour in other brands but this one owns them all! I knew immediately that I wanted it in a wrap for dinner.
My Spelt Tortilla Wrap contained: Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, spinach, chicken and roasted red pepper slices.
However this was slightly bland. I probably could have enhanced it greatly by doubling up on the hummus but it was a little late for that. A couple drops of honey mustard did the trick instead. Unfortunately the hummus flavour got a bit lost in this wrap. It was still really good but my anticipation of it was greater than the final result. Maybe I’ll just stick with spoon-feeding myself some hummus straight from the container instead. That may have happened once or twice…
During my studying of the night I needed a snack. Apples are usually my go-to study snack so I had not one, not two, but three small apples. They were too good to stop. Plus they were starting to rot so I figured I should get rid of them. Hey, no food waste in this house… Don’t worry, I cut off all the brown spots first.
That was all yesterday. This is
Instant Oatmeal Pumpkin Pancake:
- One packet Reduced Sugar Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 tbsp flax
- splash almond milk
- Topped with mix of SF syrup and vanilla yogurt
I’m always amazed at how perfectly these things turn out when I use a packet of instant oatmeal. No crumbling or falling apart, even without any egg whites to hold it together. This was delicious.
Lunch was the last of the leftover ground turkey and rice from my stuffed peppers the other night. I threw it into a pan with zucchini, mushrooms, spinach, BBQ sauce and salsa. I also finished up my kabocha squash. Mmmm.
After lunch I had a small bowl of plain yogurt with banana, puffins and kashi crunch…
…and another bite of banana with almond butter…
…aaaand I dug into my secret sweet that I’ll talk about later on. Hehe.
Dinner was quick and easy: Amy’s California Veggie Burger on rye with some Sabra Roasted Red Pepper hummus lovin, lettuce, spinach, dijonnaise.
+ some iceberg lettuce hunks with sundried tomato dressing and a tiny last piece of squash I found hiding in the fridge.
Sorry for the rush rush but I must get back to
cramming studying diligently for my midterm tomorrow! Yikes!
