This site is about my life in the art studio. It includes drawings, paintings, knitting and cross stitch and fun art techniques. I will also include recipes and yoga and book reviews. This is a lifestyle blog with intentional and simple living ideas.
Today I started the morning off by a bubble bath and yoga. Then walked my dog.
For breakfast I had a smoothie and rice cake with peanut butter and banana.
Gluten free chocolate chip cookies
Then I started baking. I had this box of gluten free cookie mix by King Arthur in my pantry. I decided to give it a try.
I used a vegetable shortening from Whole Foods Market. It is from Spectrum culinary. And I used dairy free Enjoy Life chocolate chips.
The mix stirred up really nice.
They came out with a nice golden color. And very plump.
These were surprisingly good! Definitely will buy more boxes. Next time I will be adding more chocolate chips to the batter!
Dinner or is it Lunch?
Today’s menu is stir fry. This year I am working on buying food and meals as I go. This is a process for me to save money.
Stir fry. My Version
I had stir fry frozen bags in the freezer. Rice in the pantry. And beef in the freezer. pad Thai sauce in my pantry and coconut aminos was in my refrigerator.
I made the rice and set it off to the side. Then saute the beef, I will be putting it back in the skillet with the veggies. But first need to warm the veggies.
Add coconut aminos and Thai pad sauce, as much as you would like. I cooked it until it bubbled took about 20 minutes.
Serve together in a bowl. I had water for my drink (dehydrated) but green tea is a good choice as well.
Drinks-the goal for this year
I have too many juices in the refrigerator. My plan is to drink what I can by the end of the month. Then I’m going to dump the rest. And the only thing I want to concentrate on drinking is tea and water. I will at times have coke, because when I get those migraines it really helps.
