The _________ Kind

by Holly on October 12, 2009

in breakfast,dinner,lunch

When I woke up this morning, the heavens above were screaming one thing at me:

Pancakes.

CIMG5696

Not the buttermilk kind.  The sweet potato apple cider oatmeal kind.

Running late on this fine Monday morning, I slapdash mashed a lunch together, starting with a yog mess.

CIMG5698

Not the Greek yog kind.  The poor man’s plain yog kind.

Afternoon snackage was more randomness.  Some carrots and a bag of these, which I scored at the marathon expo.

CIMG5699

Not the greasy kind of Cheetos.  The wannabe “baked” kind.

Dinner was a fall harvest feast.  Butternut squash mashed with coconut oil, roasted brussel sprouts and a meaty kielbasa sausage link (with dijon mustard) to top it all off.

Not the real meat kind.  The Tofurky kind.

However, an after dinner drink kicked any memory of the not-so-tasty kielbasa dog (sorry Katharina – I did not love!) letdown.

CIMG5704

Not the alcoholic kind.  The POM Kiwi spritzer kind.

I got home to work, and “When, what to my wondering eyes should appear?” but a small miniature box at my door with a bottle of Xagave so dear.

CIMG5702

CIMG5700

Not the artificial kind.  The mix of natural blue and white agave kind.

Thanks to Robyn and the lovely people at Xagave for sending me all these goods.  You are too good to a gal!

So, what’s a gal to do now? Perhaps some writing, dishwashing and if she wants to go to San Fran, a lil’ baking as well.

Not the Paula Deen kind.  The Healthy Everythingtarian kind.

What a cute post! You are so clever. I had high hopes for your tofurky dog. Boooooo….

Kathleen October 12, 2009 at 5:25 pm

Yum, I’m obsessed with healthy food that TASTES amazing :)

Madeline @ GreensAndJeans October 12, 2009 at 5:27 pm

your post made me smile and I can’t wait to see what you make with that xagave! I’m definitely attempting those pancakes in the extremely near future.

Evan Thomas October 12, 2009 at 5:28 pm

Great, now I’m craving a nice, spicy kielbasa. Might they carry one at Starbucks? I’m guessing that’s a negative but coffee will be equally welcomed atm

Marisa (Trim The Fat) October 12, 2009 at 5:33 pm

I love your eats! All that kind :)

brandi October 12, 2009 at 5:37 pm

seriously…those pancakes sound so good.

Happy Monday!!!

Lizzy October 12, 2009 at 5:42 pm

all these kinds of eats are the bomb diggity girl! :)

Morgan @ Life After Bagels October 12, 2009 at 5:53 pm

I feel like my mind is playing tricks on me after reading this post :P

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) October 12, 2009 at 5:55 pm

love agave AND brussels. sometimes together :)

Simone @ P:T October 12, 2009 at 6:10 pm

Haha, so clever! I was guna ask where your ketchup was with the sausage, but then I remembered, you aren’t a ketchup kinda gal. Dijon is pretty darn tasty though, so I guess it’s ok ;)

elise October 12, 2009 at 6:13 pm

ive never tried agave…im thinking i need to get on board, huh?

brussels = love!!

Kailey (SnackFace) October 12, 2009 at 6:15 pm

Rrridiculously delicious-looking foods, mi amore!

I have to not be lazy and make something like your pancakes!

Today in the middle of class, I recalled how you said you don’t like ketchup. How is this possible? And I don’t know why that hit me in the middle of class.

Anyway, hope your night is going well! LOVE YOU!

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 12, 2009 at 6:20 pm

The squash looks amazing and so do the pancakes!!!

Whit October 12, 2009 at 6:54 pm

I <3 you.

I do. I do.

Not the romantic kind. The blogger kind.

Jess October 12, 2009 at 7:04 pm

Everything looks fabbb! Loving that squash :D

<3 jess

Susan October 12, 2009 at 7:35 pm

Yay for Monday morning pancakes!!! I have yet to try the Tofurkey sausages. Some of their stuff I love, some of it is kinda gross :\

Matt October 12, 2009 at 7:42 pm

I love pancakes :)

Andrea@WellnessNotes October 12, 2009 at 7:51 pm

I think I need to smash up some butternut squash soon! And make that kind of pancakes…

Have a great week! :)

April October 12, 2009 at 7:58 pm

Tofurkey products taste kind of strange to me! I like the Smart Dog brand though!

I bet those pancakes were good..mmm…

glidingcalm October 12, 2009 at 8:07 pm

HAHA those tofurky dogs are meh. better than some. and actually, I had one tonight as well! you GOTTA try the beer brats variety. SO MUCH BETTER. and broil them for crispy skin! -> THE BOMBING.

love you holllllllllllllly

Alison October 12, 2009 at 8:17 pm

I don’t like anything made by Tofurky. When I eat veggie dogs I eat SmartDogs, the girls like them too. (Drowned in ketchup, kids will be kids!)

Corn syrup kills! I NEED THAT BUTTON!

Kristen October 12, 2009 at 8:44 pm

I was in love with Boca Brats, but now I can’t find them anywhere! I’ve had the tofurky, but don’t remember it being amazing…

Squash & brussels are faves of mine! Delicious!

Jenna October 12, 2009 at 9:11 pm

dinner looks great :)

Katharina October 12, 2009 at 10:42 pm

Aw poo. Hmm now you’ve got 3 sausages! I feel like that could be a TWSS comment lol. Anyway, isn’t the b-nut squash with coconut oil yummy?! :D

Poor man’s plain yog is what I’m all about lol.

BroccoliHut October 12, 2009 at 10:43 pm

Squash AND Brussels sprouts?! You’re officially hired as my personal chef:)

J @Whole Body Love October 12, 2009 at 11:37 pm

This post was so fun to read! Plus, I just bought a Butternut Squash and I already have coconut oil…

Taylor@Joy of Food October 13, 2009 at 7:58 am

Dinner looks very appetising and colourful.

Dawn (HealthySDLiving) October 13, 2009 at 8:26 am

The pancakes look amazing and your dinner just made me want to go home and make my brussels sprouts tonight–I think I might just do that!

Megan (The Runner's Kitchen) October 13, 2009 at 8:54 am

I’m excited to see what you baked!

And I love that you call regular, plain yogurt “the poor man’s kind”. So true, so true.

K October 13, 2009 at 9:18 am

This post has me craving both Cheetos and a kielbasa. Sorry the tofurkey dog wasn’t a hit!

Can’t wait to see what you bake!!

dee (the apple hill adventurer) October 13, 2009 at 9:25 am

omg, those pancakes look SO GOOD. i am going to have to steal the recipe ..

i have not had the BEST experiences with tofu meat stuff, but some is okay. i am more of a veggie burger kind of person than tofu meat kind of person :)

Nellie October 13, 2009 at 10:13 am

I love all those kinds! (well I haven’t actually tried them all, but I imagine that I would love them!)

Because I’m a poor man who can only afford plain yog, I strain it to make faux-greek. Cheap and delicious.

janetha October 13, 2009 at 11:02 am
