...well, not really. At least not when it comes to schoolwork. When it comes to meeting likeminded people and my newfound success at culinary experimentations, however, it really is quite productive!
Over the past few days, I've tried multiple recipes on Alex's vegetarian blog Veggin' Out in the Kitchen. We're now email buddies (she's so sweet!) I've also met a few other bloggers through comments. Thank you to everyone who checked out my blog so far! It has only been a week since I entered the blogging world, but it has been great! Through Alex's blog, I learned about something called WAIW. Since I have more astronomy homework and lots of English (much more my scene!), I will limit today's post to WAIW by showing you all the success I had with recipes from Alex and other bloggers recently. Tomorrow, I'll have a different themed post. :)
My rendition of Alex's Pumpkin Pie Toast. I didn't have bread so I used multigrain waffles. Definitely a great way to start the day since I had astronomy lecture right afterwards
Lunch yesterday was her Quick Pesto Pizza minus the "cheese."
And then for dinner, her Grilled Banana and Avocado sandwich. I was skeptical at first, but I will definitely make this again and again! Though my first attempt at frying the banana wasn't so successful...
Not only did I first create my blog one week ago, I also tried my first Chocolate Covered Katie recipe. Seven recipes later, here is my latest attempt, a Single Serving Pumpkin Muffin. I subbed the chocolate chips for raisins. I lost a valiantly fought battle with my printer before baking this, so it was a nice consolation prize. Is anyone good at unjamming printers?
For lunch today, I had quite possibly the best non-baked oatmeal dish I've cooked: Pumpkin Hummus Tortilla Pizza I love pumpkin and hummus but together it sounded a bit odd. However, it was amazing! I used Hope Spicy Avocado Hummus.
Last, but certainly not least is Peanut Butter and Grape Baked Oatmeal by The Oatmeal Artist! I actually had this for dinner and not breakfast, but it's okay to have baked oatmeal any time of the day, right? :)
Well, that was certainly fun. Now it's off to do schoolwork, but check back tomorrow for a post on a totally different topic! Any guesses on what the topic might be? :)
