Getting back to the swing of things!

is harder than i thought! i haven't even posted this week, due to getting back to school, and mid terms being in 2 weeks, i needed to start organizing and reviewing for tests. so i am sorry for not posting, but just because i haven't been posting doesn't mean i haven't been cooking!

for example:
Carrot cake Oatmeal
  • 1 serving of oats (1/2 a cup)
  • 2/4 cup of your choice of milk
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tsp  chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 dash nutmeg, dash of ginger, dash of allspice, pinch of cloves,
  • 1/2 a large carrot grated.
  • 1 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of choice
mix all of the dry ingredients into a bowl, and separately  mix together the grated carrot bits and microwave for 45 seconds, just to soften them, because you don't want really crunchy bits, that's not very carrot cake like, set the carrots aside, and mix oatmeal with milk and water and microwave to your preferred consistency, when done with that, mix in the carrots, and top with maple syrup, and walnuts.
and mix together again and you're done!

i topped it with a bit of Greek yogurt, which i wasn't sure how it would taste, but i actually was very pleased with the final result, it gave it a little bit of a tangy kick to it.

so last night i came home from school,  and i was literally awake for about an hour before i completely crashed on my couch for a good 5 hours, and then i went to bed and slept for the rest of the night. i cannot believe how tired i was, and we didn't even have a full week of school! 
one of the highlights of the week was definitely when my mom made vegan sloppy Joe's for dinner :)
 a recipe i will post tomorrow! seriously these are so addicting and delicious it's crazy.
well, i have bunch of things i still have to do 
till tomorrow!
