Here’s something that’s been on my mind lately…
And taking time with myself. But then there’s also a point with some things where you realize, “why am I wasting my time?” Why not just do it? What are some things recently that you have seemed to be mulling over, but haven’t been going anywhere with it?
I think with fall really feeling like it’s just around the corner, I’ve been gravitating towards autumnal foods. Whenever I read a post from Kelsey and Gillian I feel inspired to make something… better yet… bake something! I looked up some recipes for pumpkin ginger cookies. I use to bake these a lot in high school after trying The Immaculate Baking Co. Pumpkin Gingerlies (AMAZING). Most of the recipes called for ground ginger, but I decided to reduce the amount of ground ginger and also incorporate some minced crystallized ginger. These turned out very dark because of the molasses, but I assure you that these were so good!
Here are some things that have bringing a smile to my face in the mornings.
I think you understand that I like my breakfasts to feel like a little feast!
I sautéed some onions and garlic, then threw in the green cabbage and bean sprouts. After they cooked I added in the chickpeas, basmati rice, shredded mango chutney, thyme, Bragg’s, and ghee. Very random, and very good! Can I also just mention again how much I love ghee? Yeah, I don’t think it’ll ever get old.
Speaking of using the leftovers from my Indonesian feast over the weekend, remember that you can still vote for people’s entries for Project Food Blog’s second challenge. You can also check out my entry here and vote if you may feel so inclined hehe. Best of luck to everyone participating!
Well, ladies and gentlemen tomorrow is Wednesday, and that means that before you know it the weekend will be right at your front doorstep. A good time to relax…
