Monday and I am off!
Breakfast of tofu scramble and cream of buckwheat. I wanted to make a nutritious breakfast. This one has lots of protein, iron, and vitamin C.
(Coconut rice desert)
3 cups sweet rice
1/2 can coconut milk
1 cup raw sugar with 2 Tbsp organic molasses combined (this is how you make brown sugar. You can also add 1 cup brown sugar instead if you do not want to make it)
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Preheat over to 350. Cook sweet rice in rice cooker. In a saucepan, combine coconut milk and half of the brown sugar mixture. Cook on medium until thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir constantly or it will burn. Put cooked rice into a bowl. Reserving 1/2 cup of the coconut milk mixture, stir remainder and remaining brown sugar evenly into the hot rice. Pour into baking pan. Top with the reserved 1/2 cup coconut milk mixture. Bake for 20 minutes, then broil for five minutes to set topping. Cut and serve!
Dinner was a Tofurkey dog with some of my kimchi and avocado, lots of mustard and ketchup.
Click on the picture to shop for the best himalayan salt lamps and other himalayan salt products. These are WONDERFUL! I own 3 :) One for each room.
My sweet baby girl whom the Lord has blessed me with. All my life, all I wanted to be was a mom and now I am! I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mommy, so I can enjoy her every second of every day. She is the joy of my life!
This is my handsome boy Sonic named after the song Super Sonic. I adopted him from the Hawaiian Humane Soceity. His owners surrendered him because he was "getting too big." He is a hyper, loving boy who loves long trips to the park or beach. I can't imagine my life without him.
This princess was my first kitty as a married woman. She was found as a stray and given to me. She is about 5 years old. She is named Koko, which means night in Native American. She is a little princess who thinks she rules the house. She thinks, no, she KNOWS that our king sized bed is actually hers. She's a sassy, timid tortie, but I love her dearly.
This big boy is named Nano. I found him under a shed as a baby kitten, and a dog was trying to attack him. When I found him he was so sick, he almost died. I had to nurse him back to health for months. He is now a huge 18.5 lb cat. He is THE most loving cat ever. He sleeps by my side every night.
This boy was found at the school by husband taught when he was a kitten. The janitor was threatening to shoot him, so my husband brought him home for me. He was sickly when we got him as well. Now, he is a rambunctious little boy who likes to "nascar" up and down the hallway with Rahjah. He also likes to eat lots of grass. Weirdo.
This is my youngest. He was a SCARShelter kitten, rescued as a stray. He was suppose to go up for adoption, but we fell in love with him. He is a naughty little tuxedo cat, who likes to bug his sister and brothers and tries to beat up Sonic. Although he is naughty, he is also a cuddle bug when he wants to be.
