New Veggies. New News.

April 26, 2010

This is what my meals have looked like for the past few weeks of exams and work…

My take on Mama Pea’s Blackberry Cinnamon Rolls .

I didn’t have any blackberries on hand, so i used a mix of crushed d’anjou pears and granny smith apples!

They didn’t exactly role up the way that i wanted them too… But the taste made up for that little misstep.

Tried out some new veggies!  Clockwise from top:  Beet, Black Radish, Rutabaga, Parsnips, Burdock Root.  All extremely tasty roasted for about 20 minutes at 330 degrees.

Monster Organic Carrots.

Some Homemade Flax/Hempseed/Pumpkin Granola.

Now, fully stocked cupboards.

Freshly prepped food in the fridge.  This makes me a happy guy!  I think most of my happiness stems from the fact that i found out some interesting news that might allow me to spend my summer here… i am in the waiting stages right now, but will keep you guys updated as the info comes in!  :)


Chinese food actually does make me sick.  And so does that song.  But it does remind me of Summer…

WARNING:  This post contains absolutely no photographs of food what so ever.  By reading on, i assume you are fully aware this is more than just a food blog in that it is a reflection of my life.  As of late my life hasn’t been so much about fantastic and inspired meals other than a few that i will talk about later this week inspired by Mama Pea herself…  For the past 2-3 weeks, my life has looked a whole lot like this:

Considering i have 6 exams in the next nine days to get through before my “Summer” can officially begin and i can move on to my Summer courses and influx of clients looking for their beach bodies they seemed to have left behind last year, i would say that my time has been spent rather productively, but i haven’t had time to do some of the things that i love doing.  These include, but are not limited to: Writing, reading for pleasure, cooking, meeting up with friends for non-class related reasons…  Why have i neglected these lately?  Simple answer:  I am fairly obsessive and compulsive when it comes to my grades, studying for any exam, and tend to throw knowledge, exercise, and nutrition into the mega-important priority pile!  However, i know that starting this blog was something i was very passionate about at the time and i realize it was because i began writing while i had more time (Winter Break).  I have struggled lately to find a suitable window between my balance of classes, work and social interactions that do not involve the word neuromuscular to write on a semi-decent topic that is worth reading.  I assure all of you that this is something i love doing, and not only do i promise to all of you that my posts will be more inspiring after next week, but i will finally have that window to write about everything i love about life! :)  I can assure you, my life is a lot more exciting when i am not buried in textbooks!  Plans for this Summer include a trip to a sunny destination that is currently in the works…

I will more than likely be able to re-take on my role as DD for a few nights this summer :)

I may set another goal similar to when i vowed to ruin every prom picture that was taken of me…

Being the only one who doesn’t drink of your crew does have its perks!  Sometimes it involves awkward pictures that they often don’t remember taking… but you sure do.

I may even get the opportunity to go and visit my Dad if he ends up moving to South America.

And of course, i will guarantee you that there will be pounds of delicious foods consumed throughout!  As always… Deane, Out!
