Cornbread, Lazy Muffins, Muffbars



I’ve referenced this cornbread recipe too much not to post it, finally.  This is my “I need food now” bread for weekend mornings.



Use-Up Chilli


Speaking of flesh, my mom and I made chilli side-by-side last year, she making carnivorous chili and I making vegan chilli.  Chilli is one of those dishes that I think people can get really up-in-arms about since everyone knows someone who makes a good one.  Or they make a good one themselves.  I offer a chilli recipe that’s been adapted for the dorm.  I found a recipe on the interwebs sometime last April and neglected to bookmark it.  

Roasting Acorn Squash


Roasted Acorn Squash

1 acorn squash, seeds and pulp removed and quartered (drawn and quartered!)
4 teaspoons coconut oil, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray.  Arrange the squash on the sheet with space between each slice and drizzle coconut oil over each quarter.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until tender.  You can eat the squash flesh right off the skin or scoop the flesh off the skin once completely cool.  Squash flesh freezes well.



Heh heh heh…flesh.

This is what I call taking it easy

Yesterday brought fantabulous weather, what with the variable sunlight, trees beginning to become alternatively pigmented, and the winds of change blowing out the last of the nice feelings before midterms.  I’m not complaining; I wrote two today and tomorrow I write another one.  The line of thought is similar to, “Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.”  Nothing feels as good as done.

Quicccchhe

I hadn't intended to post today, but then this seemed ready to go.  In my head, I read "quiche" as "kwish."  Q for Quiche!

Correction, Corrective VI with Chocolate Cake


Lastly (are you tired yet?  It’s past my bed time):
come to the dark side…we have cake.

(Not My) Grandmother's Spice Cake




I’m not going to tell you how to make oatmeal.  This was today’s breakfast when I assembled it on Wednesday night.  I like to make my oatmeal ahead of time and eat it all cold and stuff the next morning.  I used a little too much water, as you can see, and it almost flooded the bowl.  I was urging my oatmeal (and pear, flaxseed, and peanut butter) to absorb more water, yelling—SUCK IT!  SUCK IT UP!

Burny-face Greens


College food!  Burn-your-face-off greens.



Smoothie Variation and Ground Rules


I had a smoothie on Sunday that was just a wonderfully kickass way to begin my Sunday ritual of reading in the library, attending the Princeton Buddhist Meditation Group, and doing life work for the rest of the day (i.e., walking, working on poetry, and cooking).  This is my basic formula for a single serving smoothie: non-dairy yoghurt or milk, ground flaxseed, spices, fruit, nut butter.  Blend the beejeebes out of it.


Correction, Corrective, Correlation is Not Causation, and More Cognitive Dissonance

Dear ones,
Gee, we need to open on a positive note.  I made some excellent cake and a delightful pasta pie a few days ago.  I also have not been able to get Evanescence’s “Lithium” out of my head.  Before you make me hand over my Goth card to shred it, let me just say that I only began listening to Evanescence about a month ago during Irene when I uploaded a bunch of my aunt and uncle’s compact disks to my computer.  I’d heard of Evanescence, so I figured I’d give them a shot.  This song is particularly mind-sticky.
