I had "oats in a jar" for the first time. Finally! They are good but nothing special. I think I prefer muesli. It is a good idea to use up the remainder of your nut butters though. I had organic oats, peanut butter, maple syrup, chia seeds, maca powder, and almond milk in mine.
I had some coffee, which I have been trying to stay away from lately. Turkish coffee to be exact. I love Turkish coffee. It is very strong and as thick as coffee can be as you can tell from the picture. It is made in an ibrik. I add raw sugar and cardamom to mine as well.
I was feeling Indian food lately, so I made some samosas. Here are the ingredients I used:
Vegan phyllo dough
2 russet potatoes (cooked, peeled and cut into cubes)
1 bag of organic peas and carrots
1/2 onion (chopped)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1 knob fresh ginger (minced)
2 tsp garam masala
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 1/2 tsp turmeric
1/8 tsp cayenne
Saute all ingredients in a pan until onions are translucent. Lastly, add:
4 Tbsp cilantro (chopped)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Roll ingredients into phyllo dough. Follow directions and roll into triangles or whatever shape you want. Triangles are easiest. Bake until golden brown.
My husband and I checked out a new place called Kona Grill for happy hour. Our bill for four appetizers and one margarita came out to only $20, so not too bad I thought. Above is a picture of vegetable sushi and my husband's sushi with fish I believe. It was good, nice and fresh.
These were avocado egg rolls with cilantro dipping sauce. They had a TON of avocado in them, which I loved. They were super good. One fun fact that I learned a while ago was that most egg rolls do not contain any egg. Weird huh? Good for us vegans though!
These are the vegetarian lettuce wraps at PF Changs. They were very tasty!
These were from PF Changs as well. Vegetarian dim sum. I loved these, but they only give you three in your appetizer and I could have eaten 20!
Last recipe of the day is for lava flows. I made these on super bowl Sunday.
Hawaiian Lava Flows
*This recipe is per glass*
5-6 fresh or frozen strawberries
1 shot rum (I used Bacardi Silver)
Blend and pour in glass.
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 to 2 shots of Malibu original (depending on how strong you want)
Pour this into glass with strawberry mixture. Drink! I do not think that lava flows are known here in Omaha, because I mentioned it at work and no one knew what I was talking about.
(I don't use creme de coco because it has bad preservatives. Just mix a couple Tbsp of raw sugar in your plain coconut milk and it's just as good & way better for you.)
...and Rahjah is meerkatting it up, looking at Panther over the ledge from the kitchen table. Good night all and I will have information on an awesome giveaway soon!
