I made dinner the other night and took my usual few pictures. My friend/roommate Jill was like 'do you always take pictures of your food?' and I said if I'm going to write about it I did, and she said something like, 'the blogs going to be hopping tonight'... ah... well probably not, but I like writing it anyway!
I made my favorite veggie burger recipie
It kinda looks all gross when it's just sitting in the bowl. But it does cook up tasty. Ground oats, ground almonds, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, shredded carrot, spices, black beans, and parsley. Sometimes I'm not crazy about the parsley flavor, but overall, very tasty.
I also made some sweet potato fries, looks like I waited too long on this guy
I also made a cranberry crumble. Sometimes this blog girl's recipies are hit or miss, but this one was really good. I only had about 3/4 a bag of cranberries left from Thanksgiving so I tried to scale down the crumble part a bit, I would definitely make it again with all the cranberries, I love a good thick fruity layer. I also made this with all brown sugar instead of maple syrup. That stuff is like $6 a teeny jar, so it gets rationed.
Here are the oats,ground almonds, and spices, my blender did do a good job on this recipie, good job blender.
So here it is
I'm even eating some cranberry crumble right now layered with greek yogurt and sliced banana. Yum.
I saw some of these at Kroger for $1 each, I was excited, my new favorite wine!
Maybe I'll have to dip into that this weekend when I'm studying nonstop for next week's finals!


  1. You are so good at photographing your meals! I need to get better at that because I always forget! Everything looks so yummy! Garth and I love Gallo wine too!

    I love your house budget idea, I need to do this because things sure do get worn out that is for sure!

  2. A dollar for Moscato? Hope you filled the ol' Y2K basement.
    Michelle's mom always makes sure to have a bottle at her house ready for me, cause she knows I like sweet, girly wines. :) She's always like "J-o-el, I've got mo-sca-to!" hahaha

    1. well they're teeny one glassers- that is nice of Vern (what do you guys call her again?) to get something special for you!
