did you know…

September 8, 2010

Did you know that it is okay to repeat meals? It’s true – I did it twice today with no regrets. Overnight oats a la mode were up first this morning. I can honestly say that they were as good if not BETTER than yesterday. Do you see all that syrupy goodness? It is definitely just the peach juice at its finest.

The other meal I repeated was “hello fall” butternut squash from last night. I am loving on this recipe  in a big way. It made me so happy at lunch time.

could i have eaten any more orange with my lunch?

Did you know that I might turn orange from all the food I have been eating? Peaches, squash, carrots… I may have a tan year round if I keep it up.

Did you know… that your mood can affect others in a positive or negative way? I felt like Cesar Millan (the Dog Whisperer) today, except I was the Kid Whisperer. I was feeling really rushed and crazed this morning – guess who else was. My class! My mood totally affected the way their day was going. So mid-morning, I took a deep breath, got over the fact that I am not Superwoman (okay, really I am) and cannot get everything accomplished that I want to in one day. Once my mood calmed down, so did my class’. It made for a great afternoon.

Did you know… that I am on a roll with delicious recipes? Scroll down.

Enough Said.

Creamy “Alfredo” Sauce

  • 1/2 cup hummus of choice
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • black pepper, garlic, salt, and crushed red pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a saucepan and whisk until smooth. Simmer unti heated through.

yes, it was as delicoius as it looks.

This dinner was much more labor intesive than it looks – mainly because I made two pastas (rice for me, wheat for him), roasted my own red pepper, and was making an apple crisp simultaneously (I’m going to leave you in the dark on that one until tomorrow). It was worth the sweat and dishes that piled up really quickly. It was delicious.

Alongside my pasta I made a simple salad. Artichoke, cucumber, tomato and onion – seasoned with balsamic, olive oil, pepper, and garlic.

Did you know.. that miracles really do happen every day? Tonight the husband listened to me. Laugh if you want, but I call this one small step for Chelsey and one giant leap for wives everywhere. I repeatedly told him over the summer that I would need more help once I went back to work. Tonight he did the dishes AND helped me vaccuum the hardwood floors. What. A. Guy!

Did you know… my laundry is capable of reproducing itself?

seriously?

I don’t know what happened – I go out of town for one weekend, and my housework piles up like you would not believe. ::sigh::

And yes, those are all clean… and yes, I just folded them (in case you were wondering if I usually put my dirty clothes on my couch Mom).

Did you know… that someday I will catch up on everyone else’s blogs? I’m not sure today will be the day… maybe tomorrow.

Question: Did you know… I want you to tell me something I don’t know? Give me a fun fact (food related or not!)
