Today was a very sad day indeed.
My beloved ghetto bullet died this morning, in the middle of making my green smoothie.
May you rest in peace.
Wait back up, what is a ghetto bullet? It is the non brand name version of the Magic Bullet that I bought on sale at TJ Maxx. Love! The thing I loved about my ghetto bullet was that it could grind whole flax seeds so I could make flax meal, it make awesome nut butters (which my food processor can’t do) and its great for dicing things. Buuuuttt on the bright side it looks like im in the market for a new kitchen appliance! 🙂 I saw an infomercial for this really neat thing called The Ninja – anyone heard of it?
Today I made my third recipe from Alicia Silverstone’s cookbook The Kind Diet today – an Eggless Salad which is on page 208.
Doesnt it look yummy! I made some changes to the recipe though. I used olive oil instead of safflower oil, braggs instead of shoyu, half the amount of veganaise, and a little more onion. I love how the turmeric gives it a yellow sunny color that greatly resembles an egg salad.
I put the salad on some of my favorite Ezekiel sprouted grain bread and made tea sandwiches.
Along side my tea sandwhichs I had a nice bowl of my Miso Happy Soup!
For this variation I used a dark miso instead of the mellow white miso I used in my original recipe. It was a little stronger, and has a slightly deeper flavor which was really enjoyable!
I am super sleepy tonight, and I have got a long day ahead of me tomorrow filled with work and school. Blah. The weekend is supposed to be a time to get away from school activities. Sometimes being editor of my school’s yearbook gets annoying. Cant wait till its done! Only two months of my senior year left! On another random note I’m thinking more lately about cutting my hair. I kind of want to take it a little bit shorter… what do you think? Do you think I could pull it off?
Question of the day – What kitchen gadget are you currently coveting?
Cliff bars all around! Yum!
