Random and The Giveaway Winner

That is the only word I can think of to describe dinner tonight. I didn’t sleep too well last night, and this afternoon post-lunch, it hit me hard. I was practically falling asleep at my desk, so when I got home, I couldn’t do too much to prevent myself from going directly to my bed and passing out for a good hour and a half. When I woke up around 7, I was ravenous! I wanted something and fast, so I heated up two of these Veggie Buns that I picked up at the Asian Grocery Store yesterday:

These just needed to heat in the microwave for 2 minutes, so the timing was perfect. I had some soy sauce with a little honey in it on the side, and they were delicious! They were stuffed with mostly cabbage, so pretty light, but the soy sauce was perfect with it.

Once I gobbled those down, I decided to make some Kale Chips. I’d never made them before but had heard great things, and they were super easy! I just took a bunch of kale, sprayed it with olive oil and some salt, and spread it out on a cookie sheet:

I put it in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes (mixing it around after 10), and then they were done. Simple!

DELICIOUS. I will definitely be making these again.

After the kale, I wanted a little something else, so I decided to make a smoothie. I had seen Chocolate Cherry Bomb’s on Caitlin’s blog, and I had some frozen cherries, so I decided to go for it, except I forgot the spinach! I have a ton of spinach I have to use up too but I was already mostly through it before realizing I’d left out a key ingredient. It was still delicious, just not as nutrition packed as it could have been.

This Chocolate Cherry Bomb had:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 10 frozen cherries
  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

So good but will hopefully remember spinach the next time. Anyways, random dinner, right? I have to remember that I usually wake up from a nap post-work ravenous, so to have something easy and healthy to eat (like those veggie buns!) so that I don’t end up mindlessly eating everything in my kitchen.

    I have super random dinners all of the time. A cherry shake sounds delicious. I have got to remember to look for frozen cherries because I absolutely love them!

    I made kale chips once and thought they turned out terribly. What did I do wrong? haha I think I burned them!
