Lucky for all of you, all 3 of these kitchen disasters happened in the same day. No lie. Good/Bad things always happen in threes, right?
|Thanks Jenn for hosting, and giving me the chance to show all of my blunders.|
|This is what happens when you try to make a smoothie in a food processor. Apparently, their not made for that. It tasted good... when I could navigate around all the chunks. In the mix was some SunWarrior, chia, almond milk, mixed berries, and ice.|
Luckily, lunch went off without a hitch. But then again, it's hard to screw up a salad.
This was followed by an unpictured apple with PB.
Dinner, however, was another story. In an attempt to get more protein and bulk up my meals, I decied to try TVP. I had heard ok things about it, it looked like a good thing to just hide away in my meals, and the directions for cooking looked easy enough. Yea, they looked that way.
|Note to self: following those oh-so-easy directions leads to a charred mess in the micro that will stink up the entire apartment.|
|Ahh much better at 1/2 the time. And not too awful. Although the texture is a little close to ground meat for me. Something I have never really enjoyed.|
|Mmmm add some sauteed veggies, a little oats, and some salsa, and you have a winner right there!|
|I have only made choco oats in this very mug and micro about a bajillion times. You would think I have it down by now. Eh, still tasted good.|
And sticking with this months theme, let's talk exercise. It's been about a week since I started my mission impossible: running. I can definitely say that it is still not something I love. But, I can feel it getting easier every time I do it. I haven't stuck with every single day, but I'm doing it more days than not. I think it's something I can stay with until I start my job and can actually afford to join a gym again. I do have to say, I miss sweaty, intense gym sessions, but it feels good to be doing something.
Here's to handling blunders with grace (seems to be something I have gotten pretty good at over the years haha)!
