After the amazing meal the night before… I woke up with a belly discomfort. I don’t know if it was due to eating too oily pasta sauce (blue cheese and walnut sauce) or that I had too much of my beloved homemade breads…. I was bloated even after 8 hours 😦 So, a macrobiotic breakfast was no than needed
a soup made with bamboo shots, kombu, shiitake, daikon, carrots, kale and miso; oatmeal and edamame.
for lunch I had leftover chickpea millet cake with tofu tartar sauce, steamed veggies, roasted pumpkin seeds and more edamame
I finished writing the first draft of my job market paper. YAY~~~ 😆 To celebrate I went for a run! A short one, just 4 miles but it wasn’t a pleasant one. I got a knee pain after 15 min into running, I tried to walk a little bit to stretch but the pain didn’t go away, so I ignored it and continued. Now I can’t walk straight 😦 I googled and found that my symptoms resembled to IT Band Symptoms. Any one had this? Any tip?
Anyway… back home. I wanted to bake something… what? more bread? nop… too time consuming. I wanted to bake something that is easy and fast. Okay. Cookies!!! You know that I don’t have sweet tooth and I almost never eat cookies. But yesterday I kind of wanted one, so I made Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 1/4 cup APF
- 1 tbsp baking poweder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 stick butter room temperature
- 1 cup homemade peanut butter (blend 2 cups of roasted peanuts for 10 min)
- mix flour, salt and baking powder
- use a hand mixer to mix PB, butter, sugar and egg until fluffy
- combine 1 and 2 and let it rest at the fridge for 2-3 hours
- form balls with hands and flatten it
- pinch the cookies with a folk
- bake at 350 F for 10 min
love the smell of fresh baked cookies!!!
Two-course dinner: steamed veggies with plum vinegar sauce and brown rice
green peas soup
it looks pretty similar to the original version ,right? 😉
and the slipping away… heheheh……..
It’s sooooo good!!! 😆 Soft, crumbly, tasty and it almost melts in my mouse! hehehehe…. it’s the power of the butter I guess. And the most awesome part? it’s incredible easy to make!!! I said I just wanted one… so who am I suppose to do with the rest of the batch? feed the man!!! 😀 YAY~~~ Star’s coming back today!!!
As you can see… I don’t follow the plan strictly… I’ve been slipping away quite often, which is totally fine for me because I’m only doing it for fun! 🙂 I am also pausing it during the weekend so I can spend more time with my hubby 😀
Q1: Anything exciting this weekend?
Q2: Do you like cookies? What’s your favorite?
