Erm, I still to exist. Honestly. The last fews weeks have been insane. Loads of exams (mostly for me) and grading too. Not to mention a prospective grad student visitation weekend thrown in the middle as well. As a result, some of my meals haven't been very original or noteworthy, especially since I was eating leftovers from the fall stashed in my freezer for a while. (This did result in a beet juice accident when I had lunchbox leakage of the black bean beet soup from Vwav get over everything, including a batch of lab reports that I was grading. Whooops)
One mighty tasty meal was queso with broccoli and polenta. It was my first time making polenta, and wow was it easy!
The polenta that I ate for dinner I just plopped on my plate, but I got fancy with the leftovers for my lunch the next day and molded it. It made me feel as if I wasn't eating the exact same meal as the previous day for some reason.
I also did some fridge and pantry cleaning out this week. Because of a storm dumping 18.5 inches of snow on the area, and me being a lazy arse and not attempting to dig out my car until the snow was impossible to remove as it was covered in a layer of ice from melting, I wasn't able to go grocery shopping for almost three weeks! Thank goodness I have a well stocked pantry and freezer. Near the end, my fresh produce was looking a bit worse for wear. Using three sorry potatoes and some crimini mushrooms that had seen better days, I whipped up this last dish that included a cashew miso gravy as well as Vwav tempeh sausage crumbles.
