WIAW: Ryan’s Birthday Edition
To some it may be just another Wednesday… but for me its a special one… Ryan’s 26th birthday! Even though he has to work tonight (boo), that doesn’t mean I can’t go to Jenn’s WIAW party!
Is it weird that this party is one of the highlights of my weed? Maybe I need to get out more:) Without further ado… WIAW: Ryan’s Birthday Edition!
Just because the sign as I left work today read 98 degrees (like the band:)), doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy some fall food. When I was little I used to listen to Christmas music in the summer. I told my mom it made me feel cooler.
Creamy buckwheat bowl prepared a la Sweet Tooth Sweet Life. After chillin’ in the fridge overnight, I added:
1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 heaping Tb sunflower butter
1 chopped Bartlett pear
All the delish flavors of fall in one bowl!
I followed Katie’s recipe for Killer Tofu Curry. I added a bit more curry powder and a tb of fish sauce to the mix. It was incredible. Ryan, ultimate carnivore, had seconds! He did remark… this would be great with some chicken though.
Tuna mashed with avocados and Dijon mustard sandwich served with a side of sauteed spinach and bell peppers topped with hot sauce and nutritional yeast. Water in my keepsake “glass” from the Houston Wine Fest. Guess it wouldn’t be smart to give out real glasses to a bunch of people drinking…
As I mentioned, he is working nights. So I presented him with a cake, with a missing slice. I couldn’t resist trying it. And a side note on the icing. I had big plans to write a birthday message, kinda like the cookie cakes they sell in the grocery store. I didn’t want to make a big batch of icing for three words of writing, so I opened up a can of icing I had lying around. I didn’t realize it had mini chocolate chips in it. Lets just say the chocolate chips and the icing tip were not friends. After a few botched letters I threw in the towel and iced the whole top.
Thanks to all of the bloggers who inspired me with their recipes today! And a big happy birthday to Ryan! You are officially an old man:)
Question: What was the best grocery store deal you found this week?
