And just like that, its Monday again! On Friday I had a set in stone routine to follow ensuring I hit the books like a good little student should. However, sticking to the plan did NOT happen…oops. Lets take a look at what contributed to that and start the week with a bang in celebrating what brought that smile to us! Thank you Katie, for being the ever gracious host.
QUICK QUESTION- This is a tad random, but as much as I enjoy health, food and fitness related posts by the blogs I follow, I also LOVE getting to know more about the blogger OUTSIDE of that. I love learning their quirks, travels, upbringing, thinks that make them unique and all around random facts. Unfortunately, these kind of posts only come around when the surveys float over the blog world or the odd post by a blogger.
I know I’m not alone in this camp so I’ve been thinking this weekend of the idea for some sort of a weekly link up where we can have a post dedicated to just random facts or musings about ourselves- outside the health, food and fitness area. It could be a weekly set of random questions put forth by a blogger and then all link up in one space? Let me know your thoughts on this- completely fine if you think its a Twat idea!
Marvelous is- ONE. EXAM. LEFT. Okay, technically its two but the second one is on the 25th November and I’m not worried about it. This is what I plan to do after it (for maybe a week straight….)
Marvelous is- Nutella. No, I didn’t try out Becky’s recipe yet. Did you know that Nutella is an excellent energy burst during study? Neither did I when the jar was unopened. 3 exams later and 1/8 of a jar left, lets just say another grocery store visit is on the books to replace it. Danger in jar form.
Marvelous is- NOT buying a tofu press. Who needs one of those when you can make a home made one….just press it with a pizza stone, a blender and a saucepan. Actually, I used to use a hardcover textbook but I returned that early in the week after my exam. I’m glad I found SOME use for it 😉
Marvelous is- No shame. Taking #Emptytwerk to a new level. Case in point-
Semi full gym- Pre Twerk
Marvelous is- epic procrasti-experimentation (yes a new word = procrastinating with kitchen experimentation). Friends, I have FOUR new recipes to share- and they turned out really well! [lets ignore the minor detail that I should have been studying…..]
Marvelous is- Another flatbread craving hit! Last Friday it fulfilled a Cinnamon and raisin bread craving and yesterday, a cheese and garlic focaccia craving. Seriously Khushboo– you are a special K. (Just call me Tina Fey– no don’t)
5 minute cheese and garlic flatbread
- 1/4 cup oat flour
- 1 T coconut flour (can sub for another flour)
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese of choice (I used cheddar)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder (not salt)
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp mixed Italian herbs
- 1/8-1/4 cup liquid of choice (I used Almond milk)
- 1 T nutritional yeast (optional)
- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder and mixed herbs and stir until combined. Slowly mix through the shredded cheese and optional nutritional yeast.
- Add the milk in 1 Tablespoon at a time, until it becomes a thin batter like consistency.
- Heat a frying pan on very low heat and spray with oil. Pour batter once hot and cover for 2 minutes until edges are crispy then flip and allow to cook for an extra minute, or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
Note- Make sure the frying pan is oiled, or else the cheese will stick. I got some questions regarding if the coconut flour was necessary and the answer is no- however I find the addition of it gives it more of a bread like texture! If you choose to omit just decrease the amount of liquid you use!
Set 5 minutes away, turn your frying pan on and bake some bread! And with that, I hope you all have a great start to your week full of rainbows, butterflies and coffee. Lots of coffee.
