Let me start by saying that School Lunches was an interesting assortment of "lunches" but not something I would have sent to school with my kids (when they were in Public School), because they were just not practical. The other thing with this book is that while they would be good for homeschooling lunches, this book is listed as not available (or at least the copy I got for free is not available). 


The other books were quite interesting and I marked quite a few for making with my kids for meals and desserts and for gifting. 


I read these all in one sitting, because my asthma started up strong (lots of drugs) and to top it off I got a sinus and ear infection (more drugs). I am just super tired and the birthday curse hit again. The birthday curse is when we celebrate 5 birthday in 3 days (2 on 22nd, my daughter and a cousin's daughter, my bil, my birthday and another cousin's daughter). 


I do recommend the books. I thoroughly enjoyed the smoothie book and think I will try making a few of those.

Sunday, err Monday, We Soup! And Dessert!

The holiday weekend in the states threw me off, I know waiting one extra day to see what I ate probably killed you all ;)





An auspicious beginning, but stick with me!




See, good thing you stuck with me. Photographing appetizing only the way soup can, lol.




As you can tell, this soup was super easy to make and only took around 20mins. If you remember my shrimp soup from last year, this broth was similar to it. For my money though, I'd make the shrimp one, this was good but, eh. I also have never wanted a spork more in life, the noodles were an adventure to eat with a spoon. I know, I know, I should have had chop sticks on hand but a two year old has more finesse with them than I do.




All great adventures begin with a single step, and butter. 



During one of the wild stimulating conversations I had with the bf, I learned he never has tried rice pudding. Mind blown. This guy loves rice and lives in the midwest! Sacrilegious, I say. 




MOAR BUTTER. You're also looking at my $3 crock pot garage sale grab. I'm very proud of it and how worth it was to make the bf carry it around for an hour before we could make it back to the car. 



Sweet dessert rice and made the house smell good. The three hour wait was lame-o and I couldn't eat much because of the use of 2% milk but it was worth it for the bf to turn to me and sweetly say, "Can you make this with chocolate milk?". 

You win some, you lose some.


Is it finally soup weather in your neck of the woods? Show me your food!

Sunday, We Salad! And Dessert!

The weather has been so beautiful where I'm at, it's a little hot but knowing what is just around the corner I'll take as much sun as I can. I think I'm going to make this the last Sunday Salad and go back to Soup in September :)  


Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad with Chicken




The recipe called for golden balsamic vinegar, Target didn't have it, so I just used the dark I had in the pantry. It probably made the taste stronger, but we loved it so, You're not the boss of me, recipe!



I let these babies soak for 2hrs because I had time and I like things with a stronger taste. Plus, I hate when my bath time gets cut short, so here's to you, chicken!



Well, here's to you until I fry you to death. Mwwwhahahahhahaha!




STRAWBERRIES! I love me some strawberries and avocado. The new peanut butter and jelly, I say!




I like silvered almonds better than sliced, so again, "I do what I want!". Feta cheese, I could sing odes to feta cheese on salads. A must!



Look at those beautiful bowls :)  This salad was so simple but I'm telling you, the taste combos, especially the seasoning on chicken, blended together so awesome. I loved this one and so did the bf. Yummy simplicity. 


Lemon Poppy Seed Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting



If there any thing more fun than flouring a pan?! Probably.




Drink every time the wrapped sweet potato photo bombs!




Or my huge foot.




I haven't made a from scratch cake for a while, I forgot how long they take. They take a long time.



Bf went to the grocery store this time, he didn't get the light sour cream. On the outside, I frown. On the inside, I'm all a tingle. 



You will definitely need three lemons for this, 3 tablespoons of zest is no joke. 

Does anyone else feel kind of weird when you don't need the juice from a lemon, just zest, and leave a massacred, looks like a serial killer went at it, lemon on your counter top? I always do a quick, "Thank you for your noble sacrifice" and toss in trash.



Look at that lemon poppy seed popping cake!



Sometimes, I wish I didn't visually see what goes in my dessert. You get a stick of butter, you get a stick of butter, EVERYONE GETS A STICK OF BUTTER! 

Seriously though, don't add up the butter in this cake.




The frosting calls for a teaspoon of lemon juice. Get out of here with that nonsense I say! I added the whole lemon because lemon desserts are kind of my thing and I want NEED to taste that sweet sweet sour taste. Didn't make the icing too runny either. Bonus. 




The cake was nice and fluffy but the recipe suggests you put leftovers in the fridge. When I had a piece after refrigeration, it made it more sort of hard/dry than I like. If you can eat most of it before refrigerating, I suggest you do. Otherwise, my lemony icing was awesome and the cake part had a nice taste but it wasn't as strong or awe inspiring as I would have liked. A box mix would come kind of close to this and would save you a butt load of time. 


Show me your salads and desserts!

Sunday, We Salad! And Dessert!

Alright, got a bit of a spin on the salad theme :)


Quinoa Salad with Strawberries, Almonds and Mint  








Who said salad always had to include lettuce? I'm fully on the quinoa bandwagon lately and love how it can add a little more heft to a lighter meal.



Look at that beautiful array of fruit, nuts, and ok, here's your leaves :)

I think I added a bit too much mint, but hey, I was excited to have fresh mint in my meal, lol.




Even though it doesn't seem like much, the dressing for this adds so much, definitely don't skip it. I added the full lemon and it really made the whole salad pop.



This might not photograph well, but I loved it. This taste combo really hit my sweet spot. The bf took one bite and gave a polite, yet firm, NO; I think it was the mint that off put him. Whatev. Hope you're all on team Whiskey and not team bf if anyone makes this!


Shockingly, while the bf did not like the salad, he was a BIG fan of the dessert.


Cookies and Cream Brownies 



This called for the often forgotten 8X8 pan. I can't tell you the trouble I had finding this size. (I only checked Target in store a couple times before ordering it online. The struggle was too real)






If you missed the sweetened condensed milk ingredient, let me warn you, it makes these fairly sweet. The innocent Oreos have no part in that! 

(By the way, if you shop at Target and don't have cartwheel, you're missing out. I got this bag at 50% off from a deal on there!) ((I don't work for Target but they should pay me the way I talk about them))



This batter was pretty goofy, very thick. The recipe also called for only two oreos to be crumbled on top, I did three. REBEL AF.



Surprisingly, this isn't the same picture. The recipe called for it too only be cooked until the top was lightly brown, even if the toothpick came out gooey. I think I would leave it in a bit longer, more like medium brown because the middle still had too much of a dough feel for me.



Voila! Like I said, pretty good but pretty sweet. I probably won't make them again but they were pretty cool for a hit it and quit it ;)


What are you all munching on this Sunday?
