Oatmeal #131: Smarties November 9, 2008

Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

Nov 1:

Putting Halloween candy to good use 😀

  • Smarties, strawberries, cinnamon, flax, milk, walnuts


Note to self: buy more smarties or normal chocolate–or both!

Must keep this in mind for future celebratory meals 😀


This times two!

Macaroni salad with sweet basil vinaigrette–it was awesome! I must find out how they made this!

Potato salad on the left. When the caf brings out the good stuff–it’s really good stuff!

Oct 31


Black bean patty with pineapple chutney, carrots, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower

Oct 30

Golden Delicious apple, cheerios, granola, and Kellogg’s All-Bran. I needed to finish the milk before the expiry date–so I lived through 2 days without oatmeal! I’m such a survivor. :mrgreen:


Cauliflower, chickpeas, kidney beans, roasted red pepper hummus! The stuff was rather salty and not at all hummus-y–not sure if it’s supposed to be like that since it’s the first time I’ve ever tried it. But made for good dipping sauce though 😀

Oct 29

Same breakfast as Oct 30! But had the most amazing lunch ever:

Veg lo mein with peas and carrots, kidney beans, chickpeas, and awesomest tea ever–although I have no clue what flavor!

In other news, 5 weeks and 4 days til this semester is over! THAT IS WAY TOO LONG.

Did you make that blackbean patty? If so, how? It looks DELICIOUS

Wholesome Foodie
Unfortunately, I did not!
But I imagine you can make it by mashing black beans and mixing it with flour to form a dough, and then bake it! 😀
