I’m giving a book I gave up on a second chance. Shockingly, I’m finding it easier to get through than the first time. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series was highly recommended to me by several people. I was left with a bad taste in my mouth after reading more than half of the first book and still not understanding the obsession. I’m a big reader…I always have been, but this just wasn’t my taste. We’ll see if the second time is a charm. Also-Lemon LaraBars are amazing.
Look at this gigantic piece of fall. I’ve always been partial to white acorn squash. I feel like it’s not pretending to be butternut.
Someone at work gave me this box of Buckwheat Pancake mix. It’s vegan, but not gluten free. Free food is free food, so I had to give it a try. I veganized the box directions, but I used more milk than was called for, chia eggs, less oil and I added 4 T acorn squash puree…and um, ginger, cinnamon and coconut. So I guess I didn’t really follow the directions, but I kind of did.
The recipe said I’d get two large waffles. My waffle maker makes GIGANTIC waffles, so I figured I’d have one waffle and one mini waffle….but no, I got three. And they were all PERFECT. These might have cooked up better than any other waffle I’ve ever made before. These had virtually no sugar in them, so the waffles are quite savory, even with my additions. Next time, I will likely add a packet of Truvia to the mix for some sweetness without adding calories.
I’m looking at another weekend of living in broke city, which seems to be an all too regular occurrence here lately. I suspect I’ll be doing quite a bit of creative, cheap cooking. We shall see, we shall see. What are you weekend plans?
