Experiment #20: pumpkin May 15, 2008

I finally tried the pumpkin-oatmeal combo on Monday:

pumpkin, cinnamon, ground ginger, bean brownies, corn

The oatmeal looks like mashed potatoes ’cause I was in a hurry to get to the lab [at 7 a.m.! Hence the reason I packed my breakfast in a box~] so I microwaved :p Ended up not adding a lot of water–it was enough, but less than the amount I usually add.
But yeah–chocolate & pumpkin definitely go well together! The pumpkin has a very refreshing taste and took my attention away the slightly out-of-place flavor of the black beans [I ditched the chickpeas–much better!]–guess bean brownies take a bit of getting used to πŸ˜› And notice that I have corn with my oatmeal again! I’m addicted~


whole wheat tortilla, cheddar cheese, chicken breast

Here’s the rest of my lunch–packed in a yogurt container ’cause it’s fun πŸ˜€

tortilla, gala apple, baby carrots, grape tomatoes

I ended up eating the apple after I ate my oatmeal breakfast…and started snacking on the tomatoes & carrots at 10 to 10: 30 ish~since the tortilla obviously wouldn’t be enough to get me through til dinner time [I didn’t have time to pack a snack! :(], I rushed home for about 2 minutes to grab a mug of coffee to bring to the lab~guess I need to pack a lot more next time!

Got home that day at around6: 30 p.m.–that’s 11.5 hours in a place with no windows! Was rather tired and grumpy at that point, but then mom made soup:

mashed potatoes, mushrooms, pork[?]

It was GOOD. Don’t remember what else I had for dinner that day ’cause didn’t take pictures πŸ˜›

VeggieGirl – I’m actually already on summer break~but I have a summer job at my school’s neuroscience lab~so I guess technically my vacation begins mid-August! πŸ˜€

Wow, that is quite the combo! I have yet to try oatmeal and corn — I think I would have to do it for dinner, but it sounds like it would be good! πŸ™‚

Oh wow- corn in your oatmeal!!! I’ve never tried an oatmeal combo that isn’t all sweet, your variations are definitely intriguing..

Gosh, I’m going to have to try corn with my oatmeal. Kudos to you for trying something so different… sometimes the weirdest-sounding experiments turn out deliciously well!
