The Larabar fairy came to my mailbox today! I'm really excited to try them; in concept, they're like Larabar's version of Clif Z-Bars. It's like two of my favorite things had a baby and made the JamFrakas (say it out loud: jam-fra-kass).
I had a snack plate that would make my mother proud: a fiber rye cracker, manchego, pepper jack, carrots, and an apple. And my good friend Mr. Coffee.
A while back I made Caitlin's sweet potato/ black bean burgers, and was craving them again. This time I added mushrooms (which I noticed were on the tail end of freshness) and chopped walnuts, a pinch of cumin , coriander seeds and salt and pepper.
I started to cook them on the burner, but then figured broiling the burgers would cook them more evenly. I added a dollop of yogurt to each patty (it's not Greek, but it did its job) and a sprinkle of curry powder.
A LOT of broccoli, squirted with lemon juice:
I love these burgers. What I did not love, however, was my tummy's fullness after the meal... too much fiber, Katie!
I found these guys in the bottom of my purse. They weren't fuzzy, so...
I heated some frozen strawberries to make a warm syrup, and stirred it into my sugar-free rice pudding. Yum!
The massive to-do list that probably does more harm than good:
Have a lovely evening!
