cause after church, this is pretty much how we spent the rest of our afternoon! it has been raining non-stop since yesterday morning... seriously. no breaks it seems like. hurricane Patricia is NOT playing. we spent all day yesterday in humble, texas at the Mocha Kid Expo (post coming up next) and had a BLAST. so we needed to stay in the house and #NetflixNoChill today anyway. WE killed that entire bag of Boom Chika Pop kettlecorn!! it's time to have another giveaway with Angie's! #WaitOnIt
i whipped out my crock pot and just starting cooking! i threw some chicken breasts in there (i sliced up 3 whole oranges + a cup of Sprouts Farmers Market Honey Chipotle bbq sauce + 3 stalks of green onion) for us to eat through wednesday. totally made that 'recipe' up on the spot and it turned out delicious. for dinner, baked tilapia, sautéed peppers and asparagus (marinated in Coconut Aminos first), and a sweet potato for Sonny. i had cauliflower 'mashed potatoes'! this is whatcha do:
- boil some frozen cauliflower until it is super tender (about 10 min or so) in some unsweetened cashew milk and a dash of sea salt. pour in enough milk to cover the cauliflower.
- drain it, throw it in your food processor, and blended it for about 10 seconds, making it half creamy, half chunky. OR you can blend until it's super smooth if that's your thing.
- add cracked black pepper and some chopped green onion on top! you can even make 'loaded mashed potatoes' and add bacon and cheese, YUM. i bet the kiddos would NEVER know. haven't tried that on my 4-year-old though....yet.
tasted JUST like mashed potatoes. texture and errythang!
for dessert.... yes, please. i've been waiting to try these guys out! Sprouts Farmer's Market has them 3 for 5 this week, so i took them up on that deal. they're VEGAN, people! no eggs, no dairy!
Chiso chose the chocolate chip to tackle first, so i warmed it up in the microwave for 20 seconds.
smelled incredible... was hoping it tasted the same.
the stats aren't too shabby either! it's dessert for crying out loud! subway cookies are waaaaay smaller and are around 220 cals EACH. this is prolly the biggest, healthiest cookie i've ever eaten and enjoyed.
are you ready for a new week? ready or not, it's here! nite :)
