Then we tried something new for brekkie brew - oat bran!
Apple Crisp Oat Bran (serves 2)
2/3 cup oat bran
2 cups water
4 TB egg whites
Large organic apple, chopped
In a medium sized pot, combine all the ingredients and cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, about 4-5 minutes or until thickened. Sweetened with NuStevia and topped with homemade granola.
Abe and I both really loved the creamy texture of this - kinda like grits or polenta. Very filling and comforting in this kind of weather. Good thing I got a huge bag from Trader Joe's - it'll be in regular rotation from now on.
Scrrrrrumptious. Applegate Farms knows their stuff - this sausage is like woah. And if you've never combined hummus with pasta before, you really should. Abe enjoyed his vegetarian version (made with a Tofurkey sausage).
For dessert I had a scoop of Strawberry Sorbet and Haagen Dazs Vanilla Fro Yo, served over 1/2 a chopped Asian Pear (peel easily removed with the gadget Carol sent ) -
I kinda like the rain, but I hope it lets up tomorrow. I have a bunch of errands to run before the San Diego Asian Film Festival this weekend! I have two films at the festival, so I'll actually be going down two weekends in a row, plus I'm presenting an award at the Gala Dinner so I need to get a dress since it's black tie optional. Well, of course, I already have some old ones in my closet, but...I like to have options! I'm planning on a quick blogger meet up Saturday late morning/early afternoon - if any of you bloggers can be in Balboa Park at that time shoot me an email at actorsdiet(at)gmail.com.
