Optical Illusion

Posted Feb 09 2013 9:44pm

My brain is constantly exploding with recipe ideas accumulating in my head = cooking over-load on weekends. Put together a menu card in the morning to keep my thoughts on track, and I suppose it makes the meal seem just a tad more fancy than it actually is :P

menu card

My mom and I love wind chimes, and we got her another one to add to our “plant wall” in the kitchen for her birthday. Matched-mismatched windchimes everywhere! (Match-mismatched anything is = favourite things)

My attempt at being thrifty and chopping up whole wheat berries to turn them into steel cut oats

- toast the onion and oats with 1 tsp of oil for about 2 minutes, then pour in boiling water. Simmer for about 25-ish minutes, until the oats reach an al dente tenderness. Let them sit and thicken for about another 2 minutes, then stir in the rest of the ingredients! :) Positive reaction from the fam … BIG sigh of relief :D
