First off...meet my new lunch box!!! Isn't he fantastic???!!!
Had a busy Sunday!
While I was planning up a storm at my local cafe, K was cool enough to hit our organic/local market stands all on his own. Not only did he manage to snag everything that was on our market list, but he got me a little treat - a whole bunch of wild blueberries! I could hardly let them stain my fridge, so I got to work as soon as I could strap myself into my apron and whipped up a batch of Wild Blueberry & Whole Wheat Muffins. A couple of my team members might become vegan by the end of tomorrow's meeting when I unveil these tasty (and very colourful) lovelies. Are you loving the elephant tray I picked up on Saturday morning? I am!
I also managed to boil down about 6 cups of black beans with the hope of them keeping me well supplied in quick and tasty protein sources for the week to follow.
I was craving some root veggies last night and I had a pumpkin burger and a hazelnut burger in the fridge that needed eating so I threw together some organic carrots, an organic sweet potato and garlic cloves before closing them up in the 400 degree oven for about 2 hours. To this I added some farm fresh/local corn cobs (the rest I enjoyed with some black beans for lunch today). I have to say, even with my childhood exposure to the succulence of Ontario peaches and cream corn, - this was amazingly tasty corn! Yummmy!
I also put together a dish for tomorrow night's dinner - eggplant, sesame paste and chickpeas. Ready for a tomorrow night reheat.
Wishing everyone a great day full of veggies and sunshine!
