Happy HUMP day! Last night we had Mexican food for dinner. I made tostadas with re fried beans, Fantastic Foods Taco Filling, lettuce, and tomatoes. I also made some Mexican rice to go along with it. To make the Mexican rice, I mixed in some taco seasoning and several packets of mild taco bell sauce into some cooked brown rice and fried it a bit....very yummy! I was very disappointed as I was went to the frig to get some Daiya cheddar cheese out. When I opened the brand new package it was all molded inside...BLEH! I looked at the expiration date, and it still had 2 weeks left before it expired. Have you ever had that to happen to you before? Since I didn't have any cheese, I just sprinkled some nutritional yeast on top, which turned out to be good. Tony seemed to enjoy his dinner as well. He did use a little "real" cheddar cheese on his....just a little :o)
Last night when I got home from work I made Aimee's Leftover Almond Pulp Cookies, which were fantastic. They aren't sweet at all, and have such a unique taste about them. I love the fact that these are so healthy. I tripled the recipe though, and I did leave out the pistachios, because I didn't have any. I also made the cookies three different ways. I made a few with dried cranberries as Aimee did, a few plain ones, and a few with carob chips in them. You can find her recipe here.
For lunch I had a Chik'n patty sammy on some Ezekiel 4:9 bread with some of my homemade dill pickles and Dijon mustard on it. Along with that I had some whole grain pita chips. Yes, a very boring lunch. I wasn't feeling so hot this morning. For some reason, my stomach has been burning the last few days and it wasn't at it's best this morning, so I decided I might just need a sandwich for lunch. I also only ate a piece of toast and jelly for breakfast along with some stomach ease tea (which tasted nasty)! I made myself drink it though.
I just had to share this license plate with you also. This license plate made it on our local news last night, because the state of TN denied this personalized plate to a woman who lives in Murfreesboro TN. They said it was vulgar....what???? Yeah, their interpretation of the license plate was not to say "I love tofu"....ugh. They even interviewed some people to see what their take was on the personalized plate and the crazy people of TN also thought it was meant to be vulgar (eyes rolling). Anyway, the woman just happens to work for PETA (who totally has her back), so she just might end up with the plate after all...we shall see. Go here if you want to read a little more on it. I just thought it was funny and ridiculous, so I had to share it.
