It is giant because it’s a catch-up post! 😀
- wheatberries!!, white chocolate chips, almonds, cashews, cinnamon
+ hazelnut mocha
I have finally hopped on the wheatberry train! A very chewy train, I might add [does that even make sense?]
And having chocolate chips in my oatmeal makes my mornings exciting!
DUMPLINGS! [I had 3 bowls of that stuff in total–would have had more, but we had to go out 😦 ]
Every time I have these, capital letters and exclamation marks are used, because they are awesome!
I added a shitake mushroom and some tofu thing, plus some fish thing 😛 I should find out what those are called!
The day before my orgo final:
I made exam art! The molecule depicted above is ethylene 😀
The rest of the other stuff:
Too lazy to describe every single one of them 😄
Oh and there was this:
I documented the oatmeal making process! 😄 Too bad it was a failed experiment!
Yeah…didn’t taste that good…the only thing that saved it were the PB and the peaches…
To finish off:
It was so cold that everything in my fridge was frozen 😄
The snow over here is ridiculous! I have never seen so much snow in Vancouver! There’s probably two feet of snow by now. Crazy!
What’re people doing for Christmas eve?!
Oatmeal #91: Apple Pie – Part II August 16, 2008Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast, Snack.
Tags: almonds, apples, cashews, cereal, chocolate, walnuts
Canada finally won a gold medal! I was getting worried!
I upgraded my apple pie oatmeal with chocolate [because chocolate always ups the awesome factor 😀 ] and actual almonds! The only thing that kept this from reaching pure perfection were the apples–not sweet enough! 😦
I also cooked the apples this time [added with the milk after the oat-water mixture boils] so the pieces are a little softer, but not too soft–I definitely like it better this way!
Things I added: oats, water, soy milk, cinnamon, chocolate chips, almonds, walnuts, cashews, bran flakes, vanilla extract and half of a huge apple.
Must experiment with this some more!
The rest of my apple with PB! Unfortunately, we don’t have the all-natural kind in the house–so the PB was completely tasteless! I don’t even know how I could have liked this stuff before–guess I didn’t know how processed this stuff really was until I’ve tried the real stuff!
More gymnastics tonight! [I didn’t realize there was no event scheduled for last night 😦 ] GO CHINA!
Oatmeal #90 : Nutty August 15, 2008Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast, Dessert, Lunch.
Tags: almonds, blueberries, cashews, granola, walnuts
Vacation going awesome! 😀 Lots of great food and goggling over crazy gymnasts flipping around on the TV [!] screen.
Anyway, Wednesday’s breakfast:
I found this granola bar while exploring the pantry [SO MUCH FOOD IN THERE] one day and have been excited to add this to my oats ever since! However, I was expecting it to be crunchy [well..the label saids "crunchy and chewy"!] but it wasn’t 😦 I guess I mistaken it for the other kind we used to buy from Costco! But the bar was great–a little too sweet though.
List of stuff:
- 0.5 cup Quaker oats
- 0.75 cup water
- 0.25 cup soy milk
- 1 tsp almond powder [it’s used to make this almond drink]
- bit of almond extract
- two handfuls blueberries
- 1 tbsp cashews
- 1 tbsp walnuts
Couldn’t really taste the almond–but I could definitely smell it! 😀
Congee! I guess it’s kinda like risotto, except without butter and parmesan…and probably without broth as well? 😛 But it was great–haven’t had mom’s congee in ages! Too bad I fell asleep after my run and when I woke up there was like…this tiny bit at the bottom of the pot! 👿
Dessert–expensive stuff! [Love it when parents spoil me 😀 ]
The coconut milk was too coconutty though–so I diluted it with water. Mom made this again [we had a huge bag of this stuff] yesterday with almond paste–AWESOME. If it wasn’t near bed time I would have eaten the whole pot 😀
Can’t wait to watch more gymnastics tonight!
