I’m so glad you liked the french toast! I did, too ;)
That breakfast held me over all morning! I like making french toast with a hearty bread like that – and the pumpkin filling helped a little, too.
This morning is going well – busy with work, but it is so gross and gray outside today! Chilly, rainy…now I’m really happy we did go running yesterday because I don’t want to go today.
I forgot that I had bought some brussel sprouts, and Nick isn’t a big fan of them so I figured I could use some of them in my lunch at home today.
This was so easy and so good! Plus, there’s nothing like a warm lunch on a cold, gray day.
I just took a big handful of brussel sprouts, cut them in half, and started just pan roasting them with a little bit of grapeseed oil.
I added in 1/2 cup of a bean mix (kidney, pinto, black), salt, garlic, parsley, crushed red pepper and some couscous. I actually had some leftover couscous which was superfast, but couscous only takes 5 minutes to make anyways.
I just mixed all of that in the pan until it was heated through and spooned into a big bowl.
Isn’t it right that a grain + beans = a complete protein? I think that’s right. So, go me :)
Grains, protein, green veggies…
and chocolate for sanity.
This one is a caramel apple fudge in milk chocolate. I definitely like the dark better, but this is still good.
A great, small, sweet way to end my lunch.
What’s your favorite way to have brussel sprouts? I still have a good amount left!
