That’s right folks, today I put a tomato in a blender. It turned pink.
What a lazy Saturday! I couldn’t face going into school — I need at least a day off before I head in tomorrow to get my centers together.
Here’s to lazy Saturdays, and even lazier food.
B-Fast! I made baked pumpkin oats a la Tina at Carrots ‘N Cake. Here’s what I did:
1 egg white
2 spoonfulls of pumpkin
a splash of water
a 1/4 tsp of baking powder
Microwaved for 2 minutes
BOOM! Pumpkin Oats!
With some delish green tea with spearmint.
When I ate this leftover egg drop wanton soup I was fairly certain it was my lunch. After all, it was around noon, I generally think of soup as a “meal”, and I felt quite full afterward. Also, I have had a headache all day — and I NEVER get headaches. Can copious amounts of MSG cause this? Because I have had massive amounts of MSG today — you’ll see!
BUUUUUUUT, about an hour later I was again hungry. I knew I didn’t want to eat the rest of my chinese food yet so I looked around to see what else we had. Half a loaf of italian bread and a tomato. Here’s how it went down:
I looked at the tomato, I looked at the blender, I looked back at the tomato. Kellen said, “I’m pretty sure that won’t work”. Then I proceeded to cut up the tomato and put it into the blender.
After a fair amount of blending, my mixture looked pink. I figured I’d better look up a recipe to help me. So, in my Betty Crocker Cookbook I look up tomato soup. This is basically what it said,
“Add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes and 2 cans of tomato soup to a pot and warm.”
*Imagine my mouth opened as wide as it will go in shock and horror*
If I had canned tomato soup I wouldn’t be making a last-ditch effort to make it with a tomato and a blender.
So, I then chopped some onion, through in some paprika, basil, and garlic salt, and poured in my tomato puree. It was probably the best tomato soup of all times. I kid you not! Here it is with an amazing grilled cheese:
I couldn’t finish all the soup — so that will likely be my lunch tomorrow while I’m toiling away at school.
And the grand finale *drumroll* re-heated chinese food! And there is still a massive amount left!
Also, we watched 500 Days of Summer tonight ….. here comes a spoiler (kind of): I like Autumn better.
