After my 60 mile bike ride, I spent the rest of the afternoon working on a freelance article. I was very pleased when an e-mail from the Glam Newlywed broke my concentration â€“ she has an almost-new pair of cycling shoes in my size that she isnâ€™t using and wants to donate to CaitlinHTP! Yaaaay! Three cheers for blends (blog friends).
In other news, I discovered Puffins cereal today.
There are no words. Seriously. I ate this gluten-free cereal like popcorn and it was so-freaking-delicious. I always eyed Puffins in the cereal aisle, but the price scared me away. Mambo Sprouts sent them over to try, and now I am HOOKED. Worth the money! Will buy when I run out (which may be inâ€¦ oh, a day).
For dinner, I was craving some sort of peanut-sauce Thai-inspired noodle dish, but I wasnâ€™t really sure what to do (and I was too lazy to google).
In the mix:
- 1.5 â€“ 2 servings of whole wheat pasta
- Stir-fried mushrooms, corn, snap peas
- Peanut Sauce (2 tablespoons peanut butter, water, and mustard blended together over very low heat)
- Bed of spinach
Originally, I wasnâ€™t planning on the bed of spinach, but when I began to mix in the stir fried veggies, it didnâ€™t seem like enough VEGGIE POWER for one bowl. Isnâ€™t it funny how veggies always shrink when you cook them, and then it feels like thereâ€™s never enough?
So, I added raw spinach, which was great:
The peanut sauce was a littleâ€¦ differentâ€¦ but good. Husband gave it two thumbs up! It was a nice change from pasta sauce.
Off to munch on more Puffins! And get into bed early.
Whatâ€™s your favorite way to sneak in fruit and veg?
