Happy December first!
(It’s snowing here! The first snow of the season!)
And happy post thanksgiving! I hope you all had a great day. 🙂 Mine was filled with yummy food and family, which equals the perfect day. What was on the menu for me this year?
My meal was really simple this year for two reasons..
- I was lacking inspiration
- I was lacking motivation
While I LOVE getting my cook on in the kitchen, I was just so burnt out from school that I couldn’t even sum up enough enthusiasm to come up with something creative. Do you ever have moments like this? What do you do to break out of your funk? Anyhow I had a butternut squash and acorn bisque, mashed sweet potato’s and something new and super delicious..
I was really excited to try the Gardein Chik’n Scallopini, and have been wanting to for a long time. Made by the Gardein Company who prides themselves on making delicious, vegan, and oh yes did I mention EXTRA DELICIOUS products that mock meats products, without all of the cholesterol,fat and added ingredients.
Ingredients : water, soy protein, vital wheat gluten, ancient grains (quinoa, amaranth, millet and kamut), natural flavors (from plant sources), potato starch, expeller pressed canola oil and/or safflower oil, pea protein, modified vegetable gum, carrot fiber, organic beet root fiber, organic evaporated cane juice, yeast extract, sea salt. rub: spices, red bell pepper flakes.
And each breast only has 90 calories per piece!
The verdict? Would I buy this again?
Absolutely! These were fantastic, quick and they made my thanksgiving meal more complete for sure. The texture and taste were spot on and you can do so much more with them than just simply cook them. You could add them to dishes and other recipes to make them stand out even more.
After my thanksgiving meal I went home and relaxed with Earth Mama and watched Eat, Pray, Love. Which I have been dying to see forever! After reading the book two summers ago I was eager to see the movie. Have you ever seen/read Eat, Pray, Love?
Totally good! I would give it two thumbs up for sure. 🙂
Now I’m back at school and getting ready to go into final exams, and then Christmas is going to be here! Ahhhh! So exciting! I am getting a little anxious about exams though since I don’t really know what to expect. But there is 16 more days left until I am home for the holidays, and when I get home I am for sure going to get my bake on in the kitchen!
Off to to class! Catch ya tomorrow!
