Dinner. No, I did not eat all of it. But it did only take 10 minutes to make. Really not that exciting, but I was proud of my attempt. It’s spicy italian turkey sausage cooked with yellow pepper and onions, then some trader joe’s mini potatoes and lettuce.
So I can’t usually eat peppers because I end up tasting them for like two days straight (gross, I know). But I happen to love them and yellow peppers don’t seem to affect me as much as red and green. I used to love raw red peppers on sandwiches and now I can only eat peppers cooked 😦 sad day. But on the plus side, spicy meat is pretty much one of my favorite things; which is why my striving to be a vegetarian will probably always fail (that and raw fish!)
Awesome bite! And yes, that’s Marge Simpson’s blue hair in the background. This morning I went to the Obey Sample Sale with my sister. I got some great stuff for Evan and myself for some pretty good deals (I’m already wearing some of my purchases!) I should take some pictures of the things I bought later. Today I spent the day working, writing description after description of newspaper articles… can’t wait to be done with that! As we speak I have the Community Christmas Episode on! How can you not love clay versions of the characters?! So far, one of my favorite episodes.
I also wanted to tell you that I’ve been attempting to branch out and try some new things lately, they may be super simple, but for me, it’s a start. I can’t even pretend to hide my ignorance when it comes to cooking. I think what it all really comes down to is creativity and knowing the basics (which I still don’t know most of them). But hey, that’s what I’m working on right?
Here’s one concotion I made that I really didn’t like. It’s Chai Tea with almond milk. I thought it could be delicious, but it ended up being waaay too sweet for me and just tasting funny. I’m really picky about what I like to drink with almond milk. I like it in coffee sometimes, but others it seems too watery. I don’t know. I’ve seen a lot of blogs that use almond milk for baking or making protein smoothies.
Do you use almond milk for anything? What is your favorite milk-y drink?
