After Dan and I treated ourselves to a Thanksgiving Dinner of vegan rueben sandwiches and onion rings (hey last year it was a bottle of wine and take out pizza on a beach… you do know we are classy, don’t you?) I saw these vegan bagels at Bloomers and couldn’t not pick one up.
I mean, that is the softest, doughiest bagel I have ever seen. Look at that sucker!
I bought whipped cream cheese for the first time. I’ve always been curious about it, though I only really picked it up because it was on sale and cheaper than the regular stuff. I needed some topping for dat bagel action.
I baked possibly the best – read: softest – muffins I think I ever have created. They shocked me. Pumpkin carrot ginger bran. I need to share the recipe with you.
I also threw together a frittata using a bunch of odds and ends in my fridge that were making me itch. An easy mix of eggs and egg whites, milk, roasted butternut squash, kale, feta, salt, pepper and mixed herbs. A cheesy success.
A new favorite quote – and quote master – I found this week
I took myself out for another one of those moments I talked about this week. A couple hours at a window with an americano and pumpkin cookie to just sort of…get away…from the stress of apartments and life. The cafe was playing old school jazz standards. It was so peaceful.
Pencil crayons on streetcars should be a more frequent thing
I steamed up the rest of the gigantic kabocha I got from the farmers market two weeks ago. It actually baffles me how, not only am I not sick of steamed kabocha, but that I actually continually and intensely crave it each and every day. Kabocha + peanut butter. Literally a pairing I think I will never get sick of. Eternal thanks to this lady for suggesting the steamer route.
My life has some potentially large stressful things in it right now. And as you know, a whole lot of mess. These little snippets of normalcy keep me going. They’re the things that keep me happy and grounded.Little snippets in a week: baking, kabocha and bagels. #bagels #kabocha #muffins #thelittlethings Click To Tweet
