Poppyseed Bagel Toasted w. Peanut Butter and Homemade Iced Latte
I went M.I.A. for the holidays. There was no reason for it. But I'm back now.
Above was a breakfast I very recently had after realizing I haven't had a peanut butter bagel in...well...forever! I missed it so. It was delicious. I wish I had one right now. Perhaps tomorrow I'll trek out and get a bagel to make this wonderful concoction again.
Something I will make again tomorrow are my homemade latte's, always iced. Now I have my own espresso machine but I still would go out and buy myself an iced latte a few times a week. It gets to be very expensive. VERY EXPENSIVE!! Try adding up what you pay for coffee everyday for a week and then times that by 52 weeks and you can probably go on vacation or buy yourself some wonderful new clothes (which i need!). Since I need things and have my own espresso machine I make them myself now and they are better than what I get out so I win in the end either way.
Rice and Beans
I made an old favorite of Peter's the other night..Rice and Beans. We haven't had it in awhile. Nothing special about it. Just some beans, garlic, onions, jalapeno's and spices.
The Vegan Challenge Veggie Stir Fry!
What's the Vegan Challenge? My husband and sister are taking what they call The Vegan Challenge..where for 3 weeks (at least) they will eat only a vegan diet. Peter wants to see if he will really feel better like a forward to one of my cookbooks by a Dr. said he would. My sister likes challenges. She has even said she'd do it for 3 months..but she will see if she last the 3 weeks first. I wish them luck. Stay tuned for updates on their challenge for the next 3 weeks. Will they make it??? I hope so. Tonight we went to my sisters for the first dinner of the challenge and I made them a simple stir fry to start them off.
Not food but I like to chew on her ribs. It makes her laugh. The best thing in the world is when a baby laughs. Here she is all dressed up for X-mas. She got a ton of stuff. But nothing from us. I feel the fact that we gave her life this year was enough of a gift.
She is now 4 months old!
