Last night was a cozy Friday in with some tea and a chick flick – Life as We Know It. It was super cute. I liked it. I LOVED Katherine Heigl’s wardrobe in it. She had these awesome flared pants that I NEED. Anyway….- But I also felt the needs for something a little sweet, yet light, since I ate such a heavy risotto for dinner (again, awesome).
Enter the baked apple concoction:
I made this recipe up and just started throwing things in there that I thought would taste good. I baked it all in tin foil at 400 degrees for 30 mins.
1 apple (I used Spartan), sliced
1 tbs of natural peanut butter
1.5 tsp brown sugar
2 tbs oats
cinnamon (I just put on a few shakes of the container)
sprinkling of chocolate chips.
Step 1: Cut apples and lay on foil
Step 2: Throw other stuff on top and wrap foil
Step 3: Enjoy.
It was like apple crisp but lighter.
And now for something random that I am proud of: My orchid!
These babies are notorious for being temperamental and dying a terrible death after the first bloom. I have managed to keep this beauty alive for 2.5 years and 3 (THREE!!!) blooms. Amazing considering that I killed my hyacinth at work after 3 days.
My Hyacinth (RIP):
This is not my fault though. I found out after the fact that the cat (we have an office cat) likes to come by once or twice a day and munch on my Hyacinth leaves – they immediately die. Not cool, cat. Not cool.
