Patty Cake

January 25, 2011

Banana Scramble was what’s for breakfast.

In the mix: Half of a banana, almond mix, flax seeds, vanilla, cinnamon, oats.

This one was a little too moist, but still flip-able.

Rinsed off some fresh blueberries!

Assembled on an Ezekiel muffin.

Topped with the blueberries, peanut butter and coconut.


I was doing even more cleaning today!! I worked up quite the appetite.

Time for lunch in a wrap.

Honey goat cheese, olive tapenade, caramelized onions rolled up in a small tortilla.

Mini roll ups x2.  Blue corn chips with some guacamole!

A random, but delicious lunch.

I’m loving these blue corn chips!


I’ve been seeing lots of organizational posts lately in the blogosphere.  So I figured today was a good day to tackle the dreaded closet.

It still sort of looks a mess but at least I know what exactly is in there and where it is.

I keep my shoes and purses in the cubes below. Shirts and jackets on the rod.  Miscellaneous things on top in the baskets [scarves, gloves, belts, etc.].

I need a bigger closet.

I needed to use up some dying veggies in my fridge.

So I chopped up some onion, celery, red and green bell pepper and garlic.

I grabbed some spices from the cabinet. Paprika, garlic powder, chili powder.

Then I grabbed some hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and capers from the fridge.

I threw them all in a pan and sauteed them until soft.  I also added some frozen corn in the mix too.

I cooled them off and then added the veggie mix to some canned salmon I had.

Then I added some mayo, dijon mustard, crushed saltine crackers, bread crumbs, one egg, salt and pepper.

Once mixed then I formed them into patties.

Seared them off in a pan and popped them on a sheet pan and threw them in the oven to make them crispy.

I needed something to go with the salmon cakes, so I sauteed some spinach up with olive oil and garlic.

Mmh these were good.


By the way, I still can’t stop eating those Samoas from the other day.  I foresee them being gone in the next couple days.

I’ll be going up towards the lake tomorrow!! I think I’m wayyyy overdue for a haircut.  Who knows how short I’ll go 🙂

Just kidding I wouldn’t go THAT short. I’m a chicken.

See ya tomorrow!

Vanessa 🙂
