Simply Delicious

Hahaha I had a fun time reading all of your comments this morning! When I was growing up I suffered terribly from IBS and I’m pretty sure that’s all this morning was. Sometimes when I exercise then stuff my face with food (huge bowl of oatmeal) it doesn’t settle all that well. Anyways, I’m feeling better now and just made a delicious dinner with my leftover VwaV peanut sauce. Very simple and easy: just cooked some udon noodles, tossed them with the sauce and sliced some green onions on top. So yummy, I could eat this sauce with a spoon 😉 I also made a green salad with my favorite Annie’s Woodstock dressing. Today at work once I was feeling better I ate my lunch (didn’t finish all of the soup though) and then later I snacked on some peanut butter pretzels I had stashed in my purse that I thought I might want.



Tonight marks my first night of Custards class! I’m in a totally different building and not too excited about this class because custards aren’t my favorite dessert anyways, but learning all the techniques should be cool. I’m bringing a Z-Bar for later when my sweet tooth strikes!

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better!! I agree. That peanut sauce is to die for. I have to hide it if there’s leftovers or everyone will eat it!

    Ugh IBS sucks! I had that in elementary school and would start every day with an hour long stomach ache, i found that taking metamucil did WONDERS for me untill i grew out of it!

    I’ve read that something like 70% of young females suffer from IBS like symptoms because it is stress related. It’s tough being a girl 🙂

    Jenna What were your symptoms like when you had IBS? My doctor is doing alot tests on me right now in order to fight what the heck is wrong with my digestive system. I have always wondered if it is IBS. Thanks!

    Don’t mean to drag on this topic…but I have suspected I have IBS just due to some of the symptoms I have had for a while. I know it is pretty common in women, how did everyone who has it figure out that you did indeed that IBS? What are the main symptoms? I assume it is something you can control with diet adjustments?

    Jenna – love the blog! What kind of sauce is that? Did you make it or can you buy it at a grocery store? I love peanut sauce. Keep up the good work!

    Or a master pastry cream curdler! Trust me, you’ll scramble at least one batch… turns out there’s a very fine line between “nappe” and “omlette”.

    I have IBS and its totally anxiety related (for me, anyway) but I manage it through my diet. Prunes are like a god send.

    I’m like a ninety year old woman.

    I am just saying.
