I made a tasty Eggplant Lentil Stew with Pomegranate Molasses from Simply Recipes. The pomegranate molasses I picked up at the Spice House was delicious. It’s sweet and very flavorful. I even ate a few spoonfuls of it. Talk about a sugar rush. Wooooo!!! The stew was very hearty and Rob took the leftovers for lunch. He said it reheated fine.
Here’s a non-exciting lazy meal but I still took a picture of it. Black bean and avocado burritos with rice. The green sauce is just Tabasco sauce. I mixed the beans with onions and Penzey’s Fajita Seasoning. I love that seasoning and it’s perfect for seasoning beans or veggies for burritos and fajitas.
Black Bean and Avocado Burritos with Rice (lots of rice, I was starving!):
I think I’m the last vegan blogger to try Dreena’s Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies from Vive Le Vegan. The cookies were a cinch to prepare and the right amount of soft and chewy. YUM!
Now for some thrifty finds. I picked up two Martha Stewart Books for $3 total. The one on the left is Martha Stewart’s Christmas from 1989. It has recipes, crafts, and more. Of course there are projects from this book I’ll never make…like a gingerbread mansion. I don’t have the patience to make a gingerbread house let alone a mansion! Helllloooooo…earth to Martha Stewart???
The book on the right is called Good Things from Tag Sales and Flea Markets. It’s from 2002. It has some useful projects and good tips on how to clean items you find.
Three dollars for both books…it’s a good thing. Ahhhh, sorry, I couldn’t help myself and HAD to say it. Please accept my apologies 😀
UPDATED: Forgot to add this picture earlier. Here’s the gingerbread mansion picture in the Christmas book:
Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
