First things first: Congratulations to our wonderful WIAW hostess Jenn, soon-to-be mum of a little pea!
I owe you an apology: I lied … but I didn’t mean to! In Monday’s post I said I’d talk about something pretty fantastic – cereal!– and while ideas were floating around in my mind already I had yet to write the post. Being at my parents’, though, things life got in between . I hope you’ll understand. Be back for some [ce]real action soon .
Seeing as it’s What I ate Wednesday, though, I’m obviously not coming empty-handed in terms of food pictures. While cereal might not have been on the menu I still ate some good meals – sticking with my goal of getting a little more creative in the kitchen.
Not usually being a fan of leftovers I was glad to have above bowl of deliciousness waiting for me when I came home ravenous after work: Kidney Beans in Chocolate Mole Sauce. What it lacks in terms of appearance it makes up for it taste.
Somehow I tend to go a little wild shopping at the supermarket every now and then resulting in an overload of produce to be used up. One of those meals thrown together with all kinds of odds and ends that turn out surprisingly tasty: Chickpea and Veggie Stew.Last week also featured my first time trying Borlotti beans and I’d say I’m pretty fond of them already. Chickpeas still remain my favourite but they might get a little competition from these little magical beans .
Looking at all of those meals it’s pretty obvious I’m a beanie fond of beans, huh ?! Going with Jen’s WIAW motto for this month I obviously also got in my veggies. Stews for the win!
… and whatever happens almond butter will always finds its way into my day.
