Rich wasn't home for dinner so I ate like I like to......which is pretty darn weird.....because we don't eat like most people do when he IS home for dinner.
Last night I made apple crisp without butter and without a recipe. it was still good.
1 cup oats
1 cup whole wheat flour (thanks for the wheat grinder Joyce and Paul....i love fresh flour)
1/2 cup brown sugar (how could it not be good with that much sugar)
1/2 cup apple juice
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
1 tsp baking soda
mix flour oats sugar and soda. stir in 1/2 cup apple juice and 1 egg. press 1/2 mixture into bottom small cake pan. cut apples small and put on top of 'crust'. Top off with the rest of the mixture like you do apple crisp. I guess you could substitute splenda... Bake 350 until you can smell it. Enjoy. I was able to stop at one piece...which is amazing. Wish someone lived close so i could share....
Tonight went a bit healthier and had wheat berry salad.
Again its a recipe i made up. Try it if you dare......
1 cup wheat berries
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup kale chopped small
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
alot of mustard
fresh thyme (as much as possible from dying winter garden)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (fresh shredded kind)
I toasted the nuts in the new non stick skillet my mom gave me. then I poured some olive oil over them and added the onion - cooking until it was translucent. After that I added the kale and the wheat berries (which I cook in advance and freeze), thyme (which i went to the garden in the dark to hunt for). Once the wheat berries were heated through I topped with parmesan cheese and I dipped in mustard while eating. I'm still full, which is a miracle for having eaten at 5:30. Since baby started to grow im hungry ALL THE TIME.
