I have lots o' food to talk about, but first here's Miles being all mad at me for trying to make him wear a shirt. Settle down, kitty.
Now. About that crazy sandwich. I know I've posted about trying to watch the sweets, going to the gym, etc. That's why I feel bad about this sandwich. But not too bad, mind you, because Ken and I split it.
Damn you, Paula Deen. This is her stupid sandwich. A grilled (ie:fried) peanut butter and banana sandwich, coated in cinnamon and sugar. The funny thing is, in Paula's version, she mixed the peanut butter with honey to "make it sweeter". Uh.....what? That being said, you must try this sometime. I mean, it can't be worse than say, french toast. Can it? Ooof.
Speaking of breakfast, we had a glorious breakfast dinner a few nights ago. We had the typical tofu scramble, but I also made some devil potatoes. Whoo! I love these! The idea came from a dish of devil potatoes that Lisa brought to a recent potluck. I don't remember all of the spices that she used in hers, I just remember the bright redness from Hungarian paprika. So I used a generous amount of Hungarian paprika I procured at the farmer's market for cheap, and added it to some shredded potatoes, along with some garlic, salt and pepper. These are the best potatoes ever. Ever!!! Try this immediately.
The devil potatoes paired up well with another batch of Kittee's cheezy grits. The half of a garlic bagel really pushed this meal over the edge calorie-wise, but scooping scramble and grits to the mouth via bread is essential to me.
Speaking of Kittee, I finally tried her crispy stuffed tofu pockets from Papa Tofu. These were labor intensive, but so very worth it. for the crispy crust, I chose some health food store corn flakes. So crunchy! So crispy! The filling is mostly Kittee's (a spicy spinach and onion mix), with the omission of peas. Cause ya'll know how I feel about peas.
The picture does not do it justice, as usual.
Along with the tofu pockets, I made a batch of Brussels sprouts. I've never liked Brussels sprouts, but somehow I keep falling into the trap and continue to try them. Verdict? I still don't like them. I feel bad about this. Oh well.
At least I finally made a pepper this week that I liked.
