I planned on making a repeat batch of pumpkin oats for breakfast today. I was hustling this morning since D and I had to be at the gym by 8:30 for my weekly gig. Somehow the pumpkin never made it into my bowl. Of course I did not even realize it until I was brushing my teeth. I said to myself - “did I forget to add the pumpkin?” While consuming said bowl of yumminess I thought it looked a little naked. That’s why.
So I just added that orange creamy goodness to my lunch salad. It totally worked well with all the other components and made for a very tasty dish.
Cottage cheese is always a nice addition to a bed of greens – at least in my book.
Along with a dollop of hummus.
Anyone else adore raw cauliflower? I would much rather eat it raw then cooked. I think it is a texture thing. I love that it is super crunchy. I do not dig it when it is all mushy.
I doused the entire salad with paprika, cumin and cinnamon. The spices really give it some life. Salad dressing can be over powering to the veggies - this blend of spice really just enhances their natural flavor.
Today is flying by. It is almost time to go retrieve D from school. Where did my afternoon go? Oh yeah, I was cleaning and doing laundry – typical mommy duties. Enjoy the rest of your day.
