Tony said his sweet tooth was acting up, so for "dessert" I made the Oatmeal Cookies from Clean Food. I have owned this cookbook for a bit, but this is the first time I cracked it open. I dunno, I think the recipes look so simple, that I don't find them appealing. At first. Then I remind myself that simple can be really good.
These cookies are really good, anyhow. Feeling extra virtuous, I used spelt flour instead of white, and raisins in place of chocolate chips. I do think it's funny that the first thing I choose to make from a book about whole, clean foods is cookies. Well, when I said that one of my goals this month is to eat more unprocessed foods, I didn't say what those foods had to be, ha ha. Baby steps!
Tonight we were supposed to go to an event up in Rhinebeck and we were going to eat there, but it was cancelled, so we found ourselves with no plans and no dinner prepared. We decided to go out to eat, and headed to Antonella's because Jackson always loves pizza. I like their bruschetta pizza. Vegans don't have to specify "no cheese" because it comes topped with tomatoes, black olives, and red onion -- that's it. Simple, yet tasty and satisfying.
We did have some cheese, though, in the form of the easy listening music that was playing throughout our meal. I cracked up when I looked up their website and the same cheesy music started playing through my computer speakers. Just a little warning for you there, my friends, before you click that link!
Anyone else taking on the 30 Day Challenge that I started yesterday?
