Cukoo For Coconut

I know I said this morning that I’d be a grump, but today wasn’t so bad.  Coffee helped.

I got dressed quickly enough that I had time to take Webster on a morning walk and when I met the husband to do a backpack/dog swap he ended up driving me to school.  We got iced coffee with skim milk along the away.

Sidenote – my bladder probably wished I’d skipped the coffee; I also had a breakfast drink, a soda, and a huge bottle of water.  At one point all four were sitting on my desk, which made everyone crack up.

Breakfast was a celebration of coconut.

A Liberte Coconut Yogurt,

and a Zico Chocolate Coconut Water.

I tried the chocolate Zico in Ohio last spring and loved it, it’s like a lighter Chocolate Nesquick!  When I finally spotted some at Wegmans last week I freaked out.

My lunch looked an awful lot like last night’s dinner.

Tempeh and veggie brown rice casserole topped with white cheddar.  I microwaved it at school.

I have one final casserole serving stashed in the freezer and I’m looking forward to remembering it in a few months.

After class I spent time on some job applying things.  <– please cross your fingers for me!  Then I took the world’s hardest nap.  When you wake up from a nap remembering dreams you know you needed sleep.

Dinner was simple but oh-so-good.

  1. Chop the top off of a bulb of garlic, drizzle with evoo, stick in an oven at 400* for 30ish minutes.
  2. Boil ~1.75 cups of bow tie pasta.  Add ~.25 cup frozen edamame and 1 pint frozen mushrooms during the last three minutes of cooking.  Drain and return to pan.
  3. Squeeze roasted garlic into pasta.  Add ~3 Tbsp creamy mushroom soup, ~2 Tbsp evoo, and a liberal sprinkling of salt.  Stir vigorously.
  4. Portion onto two plates.  Dig in.

Adam gave me a bunch a bunch of crap when I told him the dinner plan but we both swooned our way through the finished dish.  Roasted garlic is so flipping creamy.

I’m up late because I was typing up the posts with the pie and dog treat recipes from last weekend.  It was worth it even if no one else tries them out because I will definitely make both recipes again.  In the meantime, I’ll see you tomorrow at noon for some window shopping!
