In the aftermath of the garage sale, I decided to forget about tidying up the remaining, mostly empty, boxes and instead got down to cooking and baking.
Since I had buttermilk left over from the red velvet cupcakes we made earlier this week (sans red food dye), I did a quick web search and found this tasty looking Raspberry Buttermilk Cake from Gourmet. Now, you can probably see that I didn't use raspberries -- I had blueberries and so that is what I subbed. It is easy, delicious and a recipe I imagine I'll be using again and again in the future.
For dinner we had brown rice & black beans topped with an egg over easy (yes, really -- an egg) and some salsa verde. Yummy and healthy comfort food. But of course, this photo is of homemade granola. I know I posted a granola recipe a while back, but this is my new and improved granola. I'll post the details on a day when I'm not so tired and cranky.
Oops! I didn't think to take a photo of my delicious lunch until it was all gone. Mango smoothies (lassi) are all the rage in our house right now. I cut up one mango, added some honey, oj, yogurt and ice, blended until smooth and we drank them down right quick. I really need to make more smoothies.
Now off to IKEA to check out their new goodies and grab some Swedish meatballs -- with lingon, of course! -- for din din.
