Midweek Munchies: What rift
is contributing for the week
I didn't go to the store this week, so this is going to be a
"Modified Midweek Munchie"! ha. I'm just going to type about some
of my current favorite foods...
Making Ramen Nutritious!
Top Ramen, Oriental. It's vegan, yummy, 15¢ cheap, and it's quick and
easy to make... and let's face it: if it takes more than 5 minutes
of preperation and more than two dishes, this particular rift-person
is Not going to make it! I hate to cook, okay?!
The ramen gets cooked up, according to the directions
(two cups of water, nuked with the noodles for three minutes) and I
start chopping vegetables. Out of the microwave, I add the flavor
packet and stir in a good scoop of peanut butter. Throw in the
broccoli and celery that are now bite-sized, and then nuke it for
another minute. Now it's way too hot to eat, so I add some frozen
peas and stick the bowl in the frige for about 10 minutes. This gives
the noodles some time to soak up more of the water... it's still
pretty soupy when it's done, tho!
Sweet Corn Bread
I just veganized the recipe on the side of the box of corn meal,
and wow, it came out great! I think the secret is the super sweet
Silk Very Vanilla soymilk. mmm, sweet.
Bread Machine Bread
I haven't made bread in a couple weeks, but I gotta say the bread
machine was one of the most brilliant gifts ever! SO's mom got it
for us a few christmas's ago and it is just so nice. Especially
since I've found a recipe that comes out perfect every time. Fresh
bread is one of life's joys, made so much better when you know
exactly what went in to make it!
My mom sent us some homemade granola that has bits of dried apricot
and cranberries and chocolate chips. And it is good. So
good that I got out my granola book to see if I could try making
some for myself.
Well, the recipes look intimidating, simply because
there is an oven involved. heh. I try not to cross paths with
the oven too often, corn bread and wacky chocolate cake notwithstanding.
I will let you know when I gather up my courage and start buying
the ingredients... but that's another Midweek Munchies Story.
