I think this was my favorite night ever. I *heart* dressing up!!

All the single ladies!! We didn’t have dates so we dressed up like princesses (Ariel, Anastasia, and Jasmine) and then proceeded to be Charlie’s Angels. Makes sense right? I love these girls…

Afterwards we went to Mel’s Diner, at like 11:00. When you are tired after prom, you are easily amused. Curly fries match my hair. (ps ps!! I actually ate some!!! Whooo!! regular are better but still, fear food win!)

My dinner on prom night (well its a food blog, what did you expect?) We went to a fancy Mexican restaurant, and these were some kind of baked taco things that reminded me of fajitas in stew form. All I had to do was get the vegetarian and ask for no cheese, it was delicious!!! Not even spicy wooo!

I have actually done some cooking, believe it or not!! Not really my recipes though, but labor intensive yes!

These Red Lentil Cauliflower Burgers on homemade Spelt Buns made for an amazing, from scratch dinner one night (I used yeast for the first time ever!!!)

Another night I made this Buffalo Pizza, which I only got one slice through before the spicy-ness defeated me. My mom was in heaven though! (granted she puts cayenne in her coffee)

I made my banana muffins again, but this time I used less banana and added a zucchini for banana-zucchini nut muffins. Delicious.

In non food news, My musical opened on Thursday!!! We are doing Bye Bye Birdie and having a blast!!

WIAW: Something old, Something new, and Someone easily amused

Happy WIAW guys!!!Thank you to the Lovely Jenn (that is her name now, Lovely Jenn 😉 ) for this party every week. Now Lets get started!photo-79Breakfasts are nothing new usually (you all know I like my oats and nut butter) -Im generally on auto pilot in the mornings. But wait! What is that flavor of nut butter???photo-72Ahhhh!!!! Look what came to my grocery store!!! 😀 The vanilla espresso was highest on my list and it is amazing (honey pretzel-you are next)photo-70Also, it is delicious in Katie’s Cookie Dough Dip (made with dates, espresso nut butter, and eaten solely with a spoon because I have no shame)photo-76But with the return of warmer days (and also spring break so longer mornings) come breakfast parfaits! whoop!! This was vanilla-almond-cinnamon overnight oats, lemony soy yogurt, berries and pears, and cascading farms ‘fruit loops’.photo-68I made these just a few days ago, and every single one is gone (whomp whomp). At least that massive craving for banana nut bread is satisfied! Keep a lookout for a carroty easter version within the week (aka as soon as our carrot supply is replenished-teehee sorry i eat all the carrots)photo-84Hey look! Its my favorite salad! (beans, veggies, squash, cranberries and mustard)photo-73And then another salad because I was pretending it was summer and caved on the Driscolls. They were unsatisfactoryphoto-74Obviously I didn’t care and just ate them with chocolate (pudding)photo-75But then it got all cold and rainy so I decided to roast some potatoes and carrots and that turned into all the veggies and that turned into stew. Still in the roasting pan…(fun to wash)photo-83photo-77I like kombucha. It makes me feel like a yogi.photo-86I also like popcorn. I often stand there mesmerized by the magic of an air popper 😉photo-71Last night I made mexican pizzas for all! Brown rice tortilla topped with refried beans, shredded veggies, and asparagus/onion/corn cooked with salsa, popped in the oven at 400 until warm and crispy. It was kinda like a gigantic nacho!Anndd in other news:photo-69I go to Trader Joes for my nuts (they were out of almond butter again! Blast! So I had to make my own)photo-81Someone posted this on Facebook….hehehephoto-78AND I GOT MY PROM DRESS!!!!!!!! AHHHHHH I FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 :DHappy Wednesday everyone!!!!Are you easily amused/distracted? I am most definitely. Just ask my friends…for instance, yesterday I was at Target with my best friend having a completely normal conversation when I caught the bedding aisle out of the corner of my eye, and veered over while saying “pink?”…uh yeah 🙂
