Dessert/ Dinner

No Rush

Thankfully I don’t have to rush to school tonight—I can take my time and get there when I normally do, which is early enough! The past two days of rush, rush, rush have totally exhausted me! I need Jenna time! Tonight for dinner I made a delicious Amy’s California veggie burger on a toasted Ezekiel english muffin with spinach, honey mustard and ketchup. A-m-a-z-i-n-g! I CANNOT live without these english muffins. They are my life source. Nothing else compares! I also made a big salad with more spinach, carrots, cucumber, red bell pepper and sprinkled with wheatberries! The combo actually goes together really well and I enjoyed a little chew in my salad. I topped this with a ginger dressing that my roommate left behind. Yum!



I love quick meals but I’m in the meal to COOK! Tomorrow is my day off and I’m hitting up both the farmer’s market AND whole foods so hopefully I will come home with tons of goodies to make!

I’m bringing with me a Z-bar for later. My dad called to report that the cake I gave him was literally gone in 15 minutes. He said he put it down, went to his office and came back 15 minutes later and the entire thing was gone! That’s a self-esteem boost right there! Tonight we are decorating cakes—expect photos!

    Thank goodness you didn’t have to rush tonight – you deserve relaxation time!

    I used to feel the same way about those English muffins, until I found the French Meadow Bakery hempseed bagels – now THOSE are my “life source,” haha :0)

    So glad that the cake was such a hit!! Hooray!!

    I need to try those English muffins! I’ve been meaning to buy them for over a year now and knowing they are Ezekiel, I’m sure I’ll love them. I LOVE wheatberries in salads too!!

    So I live in Nebraska and while i realize that NE is incredibly lame but i am really starting to think these wheat berrys are a blogging myth! I have checked EVERY store here, including the insanely overpriced health markets and specialty shops.

    Please stop sending me on a wild goose chase to find a delicious magical food that does not exist. It is making me sad.

    Yum yum! Those burgers rock my world.

    Glad you got a chance to relax. Farmer’s Markets are the best place to do that!

    What kind of wheatberries do you use? I’ve looked them up and found several different kinds…red, white, hard, soft, etc. Oh what to pick 🙂

    I was curious, where you buy the Ezekiel breads? I don’t have a Whole Foods or Trader Joes near me do you know if you can find them anywhere else?

    There is a farmers market in downtown Kissimmee every thursday morning from 7-1. It’s pretty small and really just a bunch of farmers selling their produce but I’ve been incredibly lucky finding great stuff there and its SO cheap! To get their just go to John Young Parkway all the way to Kissimmee and turn left on Emmett Street. Take a right on Ruby and you will see a sign. I live next to the Millenia Mall and it takes me about 25 minutes to get there. Worth it though!


    I think they are the red box. I’m not sure on the differences between all of them so I usually just pick one. Today I bought some in the red box.


    You certainly can find these at Whole Foods! I can find them at my local grocery store even!


    I believe the ones I bought were hard…I’m not sure though!
