I seriously feel as though the one day of the week where I get a super-super large amount of sleep would be Saturday night- Sunday morning. I generally get a good 8 hours sleep every other night, however as I've labelled myself the teenage baby (need lots of sleep, attention, love and... food!) Sundays offer me around 10+ hours of restful bliss!
I don't even sleep in too much (sleeping in has never, ever been something I could do, no matter how late I stayed up- I was up and moving at the crack of dawn) However my usual wake up time is around 5:00am... so sleeping in until 6:45am-7:00am, really is a sleep-in for me. And boy, do I feel good!
So in short (because that intro seemed to be ridiculously long!) I love Sundays.
In case you didn't know.
Now you do.
Something else you might not have known- I used to hate... hate pasta bake. Both my parents and my sister seemed to think it was one of the best things ever, but my naive, young taste buds just couldn't fathom their appreciation of the cheesey, pasta-y blob of food. (Why do I not write meal descriptions?)
Like everything else I used to hate, now love (avocados, mushrooms etc.) Pasta bake has grown on me. This became evident to me last night when I simply craved it! Enter dinner:
1. Cooked up some quinoa pasta
2. Steamed some pumpkin and broccoli until really soft
3. Stirred together the cooked pasta, steamed/ slightly mashed pumpkin and broccoli, 125g reduced salt baked beans, 2 tablespoons hommus, 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast and 1 tablespoon chopped brown onion
4. Poured into small baking dish and baked at 180 degrees celsius for 30 mins
5. Cooled for 15 mins
And what a breakfast!
So I poured the batter onto a pre-warmed fry pan with some olive oil and then after a minute drizzled on some of the choc sauce:
(It's seriously like a brownie layer on top!)
Flip onto some paper towel and top with whatever you like! I chose to go the coconut butter route- because coconut butter is amazing!
I also made ice cream. Because... why not!
1 chopped frozen banana + 1 chopped frozen plum and that's it!
Sunday, I love you.
What about you?
Do you love Sundays?
Do you like pasta bake?
Favourite thing about the weekend? In all honesty my favoruite aspect of the weekend is having the time to catch up on everything I couldn't get done during the week. The more productive I am the happier I am!
I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday- make something delicious for whatever meal is coming up next! See ya later! :D
