Haitus Announcement

There will be a brief (2 week) Haitus until July 1, as the fella and I are moving, so everything we own is in a various state of seems to be blown up and scattered across the apartment/in boxes. For my sanity until after the move, I'm gonna stick to just packing, moving, and going to my part time job! Need proof I'm not just making this up? I have Pics.

The View from my Desk. I call it Empty Box Mountain
The Mythical Beast: A Fully packed and sealed Box. The label is hard to read, but it says "Cookbooks-Kitchen"

For anyone interested, I am using a slightly edited version of a label available from Martha Stewart. She can be very useful with the stuff they put for free download on her website!

Quick Lunch- Mac and Cheese +

So when I don't feel like cooking, I have one go to pre-made food that I'm addicted to. It's very fattening, it costs a lot of money, and it tastes DIVINE.

Amy's Rice Pasta and Vegan Cheese microwave dinner. So Good.

But sometimes, I just want it to be a bit... more, I guess? A bit more healthy, a bit more complex, etc.

Luckily, it's easy to do, and doesn't even need a recipe.
Take half an avocado, and half a tomato.
Cut them up. Mix them with the microwaved dinner. Sprinkle on some pepper if you want.
Then you eat it. As Simple as that! :)

4 ingredient open faced sammich

Back before I found out that I couldn't eat wheat anymore, and it was hot out, I used to get overheated. When I was overheated, I didn't want to cook, because, HEY! I'm already hot. So I used to make sandwiches, usually peanut butter, or tomato.

I don't do chicken salad, and I wasn't in the mood for peanut butter, but today it was quite hot, and what I wanted was a nice refreshing sandwich. I know, people generally don't refer to sandwiches as refreshing, but when there's lots of crisp, cold veggies, it sure does feel refreshing! So I threw together this:

Bruschetta and Hummus Sandwich

1 plain rice cake
1 large Tbsp hummus (I used carmelized onion hummus, it's awesome!)
1 leaf lettuce (I used boston lettuce, not because it's the best or anything, but because it was on sale and I hate iceberg lettuce)
A few tablespoons of prepared bruschetta

There's only really one direction. Spread the hummus on the rice cake, top with lettuce, top that with bruschetta, eat and enjoy!

This is also super delicious on toast, toasted bagels, and english muffins. :)

Quick Post- Kludge Waffles

I don't know Exactly what amounts of stuff I put in. All I know is that there were ground GF oats, rice flour, Cornstarch Rice Bran, Ground Flax, salt, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, some xanthan and sprinkles.

And they were good. I need a new waffle iron tho!

When you just throw things together and it forms an edible and delicious recipe, I call those "Kludge Recipes", and to be honest, most of the stuff I make is kludged together like this.

And it tends to be edible.

So go out and play with food, throw random amounts of stuff together to see what happens! It might be something good!
