Life has been just crazy lately! My mom now works full-time and my dad is unemployed, it’s flip-flopped! So crazy. My dad still hasn’t found a job. He’s been looking and searching, and he has a few leads so we are all just hoping one of them works out!
We ran out of batteries for my camera and I keep forgetting to get more at the store! But here are some pictures I got before the batteries died!
I’ve been making lots of bread the last few days! Let’s face it: homemade bread is just better!
I found a new recipe! And it’s even better than my LAST favorite recipe! It’s so soft and light!
100% Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine)
1 1/2 cups water + 2 TBSP powdered milk OR 1 1/2 cups milk
2 TBSP canola oil
2 TBSP honey
2 TBSP molasses (I just did more honey)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. yeast
Add all ingredients to bread machine pan in order listed. Set bread machine to Whole Wheat cycle, 2 LB. loaf and press START.
Seriously, give it a go if you have a bread machine! I make two at a time since we have two bread machines!
Weird things I eat on a daily basis:
huge, crazy salads with a random assortment of veggies and toppings
cream of wheat (farina) with tahini, carob chips and cinnamon
homemade coconut milk ice cream!! made by blending one can of full-fat coconut milk, 1 1/2 frozen bananas, cocoa powder and a little honey, then freezing it in an ice cube tray until solid then blending again! so delicious.
southwestern omelet. with black beans, onions, salsa and guac and chili powder. after the photo I poured EVEN MORE black beans on top. a delicious massive heap of beans = OBSESSED
Amazing Grass (that Lindsay sent me!) smoothie in a jar. delish.
cake oats with raisins and cinnamon! oh and that’s coconut butter crumbles on top! I hate to call these “carrot cake oats” because, come on, a bowl of oats just DOES NOT taste the same as a freshly baked slice of carrot cake, are you with me?!
Speaking of carrots…
I made my carrot-raisin MUFFINS again! Only this time they were a MILLION times better!! I subbed half of the whole wheat flour for oat flour, used the whole egg (not just whites) and used 3/4 cup agave and even more shredded carrots and raisins! These were SO much better than the last batch I made, so I’ll update the recipe page with these modifications. Seriously GO MAKE THESE.
Hope you all are having a fabulous week! It’s almost SUMMER!
How many days of school left for you?
– I don’t get a summer break from school. I like taking 2-3 classes online year round instead of 5 during the school year like traditional school!
Have you ever made homemade ice cream?
– It’s definitely going to become a regular occurrence here for me! I love how the Vitamix can blend frozen ice cubes into ice cream!
