Oatmeal #44: Berries June 17, 2008

Heh, I’ve used up all of my kiwi, so there’s no more experimenting with those until they go on sale again! :mrgreen:

Oh, and I was so excited about posting my last kiwi experiment yesterday that I skipped ahead! So I’m rewinding back to Friday for a minute:

raspberries, blackberries, wheat germ, milk, peanuts

I only threw them together ’cause I thought it would look cool :mrgreen: Two different colored berries with almost identical shape! How magical is that?! [yes, that’s how most of my oatmeal combos are born–make it look pretty first, worry about taste later! πŸ˜€ It’s a good thing I have an adventurous taste in food!]

Saturday’s lunch:

In the small bowl: strawberries
On the plate: rye bread toast with a slice of cheddar cheese
In the bigger bowl: scrambled eggs with pumpkin, rye bread, carrots, and parmesan cheese

It was really exciting ’cause I’ve been wanting to try the pumpkin-egg combo in ages! And might I just add that I love cooking bread with eggs ’cause it gives the bread extra flavor and extra crunch! With the addition of the pumpkin, the bread had a slightly sweet taste–which made it seem like I was eating dessert rather than lunch πŸ˜€

And dinner was the same as what I had on Friday–curry!

This morning, I did some baking:

Vegan cornbread!!!!

I’ve been dying to try this in ages, only I’ve never had a bag of cornmeal at my disposal before so I never did! But thanks to the Breakfast Challenge, I lugged a bag of the stuff home and thus I have cornbread!

It’s kinda sweet, even though I only added 1.33 tbsp of sugar…good thing I didn’t add more! My version was kinda chewy and had similar texture to that of a scone–an added bonus ’cause I love scones!

Can’t wait to have this for lunch today–that is…if I can resist snagging another bite of it!

Your cornbread looks delish! Do you have a recipe? :]

Ooh, I have a bit of canned pumpkin in the fridge that I don’t know what to do with… its good with scrambled eggs, though? Do you put anything else in there?

I actually really want to try your egg/bread/pumpkin combo. That sounds really weird yet really good! And I have all of those things readily available… I’ll be keeping that one in mind!

I used the recipe from here: http://www.recipezaar.com/115929 I pretty much followed it exactly, except I used applesauce and wheat germ instead πŸ˜€

I thought the combo worked πŸ˜€ The pumpkin doesn’t really have a strong taste so the two flavors together are not strange at all! I threw in some carrots and bread, and the parmesan is just for topping πŸ™‚

Let me know how it works for you if you decide to try it! πŸ˜€
