Those two colours seem to have been the unintentional theme today.
It was dark and cold and rainy when I got up this morning, which made me want a warm breakfast. So I threw some of the awesome Hewitt’s oats my mom gave me, some Dorset Fruits, Nuts, and Seeds cereal, cinnamon, and a banana in a pot with water. That oatmeal is seriously good…
While my breakfast was cooking I was busy chopping up some fruit and veggies for work. I filled the classy broken-cornered Rubbermaid container with carrot, red pepper, snow peas, cucumber, and steamed broccoli sprinkled with lime juice. And I channeled my inner Picasso while packing everything up.
The fruit side was covered by an orange, a granny smith apple, and blackberries.
For dinner I rediscovered the can of pumpkin that’s been hiding on the top shelf of the fridge. Well, it was actually in plain view, but I tend to keep my food on the middle shelf, so if I stick something on the top shelf my eyes like to skip over it. I sauteed more of the giant vidalia onion with mushrooms and soft tofu in olive oil, then mixed in pumpkin, water, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and a handful of chives, blended, then topped with a spoonful of yogurt for a delicious (and rather large!) bowl of soup.
