I was really curious about how breakfast world turn out… because this morning, I cooked Ginger Eggs. Sounds odd, tastes amazing! Way happy with how they turned out, could definitely taste an Asian influence. Delicious.
Got some sister-time with Tooti this morning, super fun and she helped me plan a surprise for Mom… more on that later.
I boiled some beets (best song for cooking beets? Beat It. Also, try busting out some of those dance moves the next time you go grocery shopping.) for a beet-apple salad to go with the cod for lunch… A few days ago, I didn’t know what a beet looked like (other than the canned kind). I sure had never cooked one before! The salad was definitely tasty and while beets don’t make my “LOVE it” list, it was a fun experience and different type of treat. The fish was delish. Side Note: Beets WILL stain you hands. A lot.
I cooked some chicken and cauliflower in the crockpot for dinner and it was time to start the surprise… I saw this recipe on FastPaleo.com for Paleo Brownies this morning and after some thought (and sneaking help from Tooti), I decided that it would make a nice surprise for Mom this evening. I’m so proud of her for doing so well (and being open to) going Paleo that I wanted to do something nice to surprise her.
So, when we were out, we picked up some 85% Lindt Dark Chocolate… and after insisting that Mom take a break and have some tea in the living room… I made the brownies.
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
When I took the brownies out of the oven and surprised Mom with them, she was happily shocked! She had no idea that I was making brownies! Best brownies ever. I mean EVER. Of any kind. They were DELICIOUS. We paired them with coconut whipped cream too… best ever.
So good! Mom was surprised, it was amazing.
P.S. I submitted a slogan on Threadless that you can vote on here. Please vote it up, especially if college taught you to appreciate a good nap. :) Thanks!
