Hey! How did everyone celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? I opted not to do the bar scene thing last night because, as I keep hinting at, I have been having the worst week of sleep for various reasons.
The spirit of all things green continued this morning when I used my microplane to add cinnamon to my oats via cinnamon sticks. I’m all out of powdered cinnamon!! I’ll have to grab some when I’m in Philly this weekend (I’ll be hitting up Target to replenish my cooking basics).
I was able to fall asleep before 12 am last night (first time in a week!), did not wake once in the middle of the night, and slept until 8:21 am. I’m also taking it slower this morning, usually I’m in lab by now, but given that my hours are flexible sometimes it’s nice to ease into the day.
Ok, time to get myself into gear.
Next up, kale chips. Simply wash kale and remove from stem. Place into a 350* oven until crisp.
Viola! I love kale chips, the taste of the green completely changes upon baking. I would say bake for about 5 minutes and then check them out, if they aren’t crunchy enough then pop them back in, but I prefer chips that aren’t too dark. I think I baked mine a little too long this go around and as a result only ate about 3/4 of my batch.
This isn’t exactly food or music related, but I can’t fall asleep because I’m planning out the rest of the year…well as far as trips/vacations are concerned. I wish I could plan out experiments for an entire year, but I don’t currently have enough foresight.
And received a free tote bag!
For dinner tonight I wasn’t terribly hungry, and really just wanted some yogurt and granola. But…my meals today were lacking in the veggie department so I compromised by blending in some spinach, a banana, and protein powder and of course I still had my granola.
I also snacked on the cheddar flavored Food Should Taste Good chips and they’re another winner 🙂
