Using my toaster, I made a toasted hummus and tomato sandwich. The beefy tomatoes made it hearty and light all at once. Delicious!
It had a cocoa-y taste more than a hot-chocolate-powder kind of sweet taste but that was okay because the banana and strawbs added lots of natural sugary sweetness!
I was making banana soft serve last night but then…I saw the spinach in the fridge. I just had to add it in but it made it a lot thinner (I guess spinach has a lot of water in it?) so I ended up with a GM but that’s okay, spinach is awesome! 🙂
Another amazing appliance – the steam oven! We ordered this special appliance from Miele. They were the first company to come up with this built in convection steam oven and I’m so glad they did! It is making my life so much easier because I steam just about everything. It opens like a stove and you just put in your veggies, fish, pasta, whatever, and select the doneness you prefer!
It takes about 5 minutes to steam frozen edamame and 20 to cook rice! They say you can cook all sorts of vegetables, meat, casseroles and even bread and homemade jam! Oh the possibilities!
So far, I have steamed edamame and cooked rice but I will definitely be testing this baby out more! Any ideas about what should I make next?
With things still in boxes and a pretty bare fridge, I have been having lots of portable and easy eats. I had NO IDEA bananas were meant to be opened upside down! I was reading Jessica’s blog and had to try it for myself!
I’ve had lots of cereal! And I used this nifty trick to add sliced bananas!
I have been eating a TON of watermelon these days too! It is just so refreshing and thirst quenching in this heat! I cut up the melon all at once and keep them in my old yogurt tubs! It makes it so easy to grab for a snack…almost too easy because I eat the whole tub (a quarter of a melon!) at once and I have a hugggee food baby and pee, like every 5 minutes.
- One last exciting thing to share with you!
Last week, I received my acceptance into the Richard Ivey School of Business! I am so blessed to have the opportunity to attend this school and it is located in the university I am attending now so I get to live with my same housemates and everything!
I still have lots to unpack so I will end it off here! Promise to be back in less than a week!
Questions for ya: What appliance could you not live without? What do you make with it??
Have an awesome day!
