The Joy of Leftovers

Well, I’m about to go to my first day of Introduction to Patisserie! I’ll let you all know how it goes of course 🙂

Lunch was great today~~Lindsay was right, the soup IS very filling! I need to make more soups like this because they are SO easy. Puree veggies, add soy milk or coconut milk and eat! A whole meal in a bowl…good for cold offices (or restaurants!). I was super happy to have leftover paella from the other night in the fridge because I totally did not have any time at all to make dinner tonight. Something happened with the internet when my roommate moved today and I’ve been on the phone with Brighthouse (gag) for about 30 minutes trying to fix it. It seems the wireless is messed up so right now I’m connected via ethernet cord. I also have to cancel my cable because my roommate was the only one that ever watched it! I seriously don’t even know how to turn on the tv. Sad, I know.

So, I heated up the paella and made a small spinach salad with my new Annie’s “Goddess” dressing to go on the side. Very filling and def. hit the spot. I have no idea what to expect tonight so it should be interesting!


And I have to say~~ those chocolate covered brazil nuts are absolutely AMAZING! I had one after lunch today for a treat and it was pretty much the best thing I have ever eaten. That bag is dangerous!

    Lunch does sound fabulously easy… I am wondering how much you can taste the coconut though? I am really not a fan of it, so I don’t know if I should try it. Is there anything that could be used in substitution?
    Enjoy your class-hope it is fun and delicious!

    courty – i know i’m not jenna, but you can easily substitute any creamy non-dairy milk (like hempmilk) for the lite coconut milk. 🙂

    You mentioned you use WestSoy nonfat soymilk. I use WestSoy too and tend to switch it up between Nonfat vanilla and lite (low fat) plain – I switched over from regular milk about a year ago and initially found the nonfat plain too watery. Is the amount of fat in the lite bad for you/should it be considered discretionary calories like 1% milk would be?

    Katie B,

    I don’t really believe in the whole “discretionary calorie” bit. I think that’s just made up by the USDA. ANyways, I won’t rant about that. You are totally fine drinking the lite kind. I used to also but then found this on sale and, thus, bought it! I think they taste the same in my opinion and they have the same calories. The little bit of fat that is contained in lite is in no way “bad” for you…its from a natural source and is a good fat. No worries!
