I don't know about you but my brain is on the slightly crispy side... crispy in the sense of being deep-fired and then fried a little longer.
And then micro-waved.
Ever have those days? No? Great. ;)
I think it's only fitting that with such a random intro we should follow it up with a post about thinking.. out loud... Spoons style!
Let the random musings of my mind from this week begin!
1. I don't discriminate.
So when my local grocery shop started selling weirdly shaped/ coloured/ down-right strange looking veg for a heck-of-alot cheaper price, I was over-joyed!
See, I'm the sort of person who would voluntarily buy a non-curving banana and a super curvy carrot... just because it's awesome! Now I get to do that for a cheaper price- YES!
I did find it amusing the range of sizes the carrots were though:
And I used him to make...
2. A big veggie sandwich- Steph style!
Generally I will try out the normal way of making something (pasta with sauce and maybe some spinach, mac and cheese with mac... and cheese, cereal with milk) and then I'll scoff at it and make up something better (pasta with sauce, veg, beans, spinach etc., macaroni with mashed pumpkin, hommus, nutritional yeast, caramelized onion etc., home made granola with a super-thick smoothie etc!)
So I tried a regular ol' salad sandwich many years ago and now I make my own version.
It starts off with a spread of hommus and some lentils:
Somehow I mange to get my mouth around this. What can I say, I have a flexible jaw I guess ;)
3. Cinnamon banana truffle bites to be exact:
Any who the point of this point (ha! I wrote that, went to change it and then simply couldn't :) is not the truffles, because I've posted so many recipes for them, it's getting a bit ridiculous!
Some delicious plum fro-yo (1 juicy, overripe, frozen plum whazzed up with half a banana and 3 big scoops greek yoghurt).
This reminds me that I also bought some frozen cherries the other day and if I thought adding frozen plums to things was good... well that's a whole post in itself!!
Aaaaand that's what has been floating through my head this past week!
What about you:
Do you sometimes purposefully buy weirdly shaped fruit and veg?
Proud crazy sandwich maker? I can't even tell you some of the things I've managed to stuff between two slices of bread... you'll be too freaked out!! ;)
Fan of ripples in your ice cream? When I was younger, if the ice cream didn't have ripples, it didn't have my attention- seriously, caramel swirl ice cream was where it was at!!
Don't forget to head on over to Spoons to see what everyone else has been thinking about! Bye for now friends :D
