Adventures in the Kitchen Soon To Come!
Hey beautiful friends of mine and Happy Meatless Monday to each of you! I hope you all enjoyed your Monday; meatless or not!
I had a superb Monday, but how can my days not be fantastic when I have my two favourite guys around me!? Honestly, the only downfall of my day was attending my three hour lecture this morning! Even though I love school (especially the class I had this morning, Dietary and Nutritional Assessment) my mind was elsewhere this morning…
I just did not want to be in class. But, I got through it and spent the rest of the day with my Daddy and Uncle
Our last day together was a blast I took them to yet another new restaurant for lunch, Smoke ‘n’ Bones It was awesome and always is. They have the best chicken ever. So juicy and it is smoked, so it is extra flavourful The restaurant is so chill. It was an ideal place to take the guys for lunch
The rest of our day was full of shopping How lucky am I to have such great guys who tolerate my shopping addiction? Honestly, I don’t know of too many guys who would walk around mall after mall, store after store, and still be OK when I suggest going grocery shopping They are just wonderful. I will miss them so much. I
think already do.
Seeing as how pretty much my entire day was spent shopping, I obviously have some things to share with you all
But first, as promised, I will share a picture of my new coat that I bought yesterday
I definitely received at least five-ish compliments on this beauty today? I guess I did an OK job picking this item out What do you think?
My other purchases are not fashion related, but total foodie purchases instead However, they are not food items
What did Meg purchase?
Well, when I won my leadership award I was also awarded $150.00. I wanted to spend this money on something really special; therefore, I didn’t want to buy something that wouldn’t last me a long time such as clothing or food! The guys supported my decision, so this is what I bought with my award money
A Cuisinart Waffle Iron AND 3.5 Quart Slow Cooker
Oh, I am going to have fun with these new friends of mine
I had been thinking of purchasing both devices for quite sometime now, so when I saw them both today it was just meant to be
So, guess what’s for breakfast tomorrow?
I think I’m going to make…
HAHA! You can bet your bottom dollar that I was walking around the department store quoting donkey after my purchase Oh, I am so cool. You can’t deny it.
I even bought fresh strawberries from the market to top my waffles with
FYI, I am currently drooling
I have also already been searching up recipes to use in my slow cooker I am so excited! It will be so convenient and helpful to use during my busy weeks at school Which is every week, so I will be using this slow cooker frequently I am sure
The last purchase I have to share with you all is…
My new Christmas tree
I have never had an artificial tree before, since my parents and I always get fresh ones, but having an artificial tree for my little apartment is just the perfect thing I needed for welcoming the Christmas season into my home However, when I go home for Christmas (on December 20th), my parents will have the real thing there Smelling all Christmas-like and what not! So excited. My Uncle set up my tree for me as I worked on some homework this evening He did such a great job. Prettiest little tree I have ever seen
As for today’s Meatless Monday recipe, it’s a bit different than the others I have shared before, but seeing as how it is my blog and my Meatless Monday… there are no rules (except for no meat, of course!)
This recipe isn’t as protein-packed as the others I have shared with you in the past, but I have to share this meatless recipe with you all because it was just so delicious
I made a beet and avocado sandwich!
Greatest combination ever?
I think so.
The flavour and texture of this sandwich is like no other. You cannot pass this one up my friends!
I used Ezekiel bread and toasted it. Then I layered it up with sliced avocado’s and steamed beets!
That’s all I can say.
Even though I didn’t put goat cheese in my sandwich (I didn’t have any on hand at the time), the addition would be amazing and then you would have a source of protein
So there you have it friends! The best sandwich you will ever taste Give it a try
Slightly sweet from the beets and exceptionally creamy from the avo
Can you say perfection?
