This year my cookie baking attempts were not quite successful. The few batches I made were edible, but far from blog worthy. I still have a few days until Christmas, and I will definitely use the time to bake some more.
Last week I told my mother about my cookie woes, and she immediately sent me a big box of her own home-made cookies! I’m embarrassed to admit that they are already gone. My husband helped me, though.
Last Saturday I enjoyed a big, filling breakfast. We had booked another horseback riding lesson, so I knew I needed extra fuel. (Riding is so much fun! More on that soon.) The weird thing at the top is a veggie burger, made from a boxed mix. Not bad, just a little too dry.
When we finally arrived back home I was starving! So I had another quick sandwich. The one on the left was topped with hummus and cheese-less pesto. Awesome combo!
It’s been cold and rainy lately, and I’d been craving a hearty bowl of chili for a while. So I cooked up a batch for dinner. This mix contained TVP, white beans, kidney beans, sweet corn, and red bell pepper. I added a little cumin and cinnamon, which gave the dish a very special flavor. I served the chili with soy yogurt, brown rice, and green onion.
Please excuse me now, my cookie dough is waiting for me!
