Phone Friday: Various Food Adventures

Hey everyone! Hope you’ve had an awesome week. I’ll admit that this week seemed to drag a bit. Hooray for Friday!

Here are some awesome things I’ve made/purchased recently:

Green Smoothie
My first actually green smoothie. I cooked my greens (kale) first, as advised by Carrie from Deliciously Organic. This was delicious and refreshing. 
Here’s what I used: frozen peaches, kale, milk, cream, maple syrup and grass-fed gelatin. To my surprise, the kale seemed to complement the flavor of the peaches.

Crispy egg (method via @debperelman ) over kimchi rice for lunch. #smittenkitchen
Crispy eggs are delicious and fun to eat. I used the method outlined by Deb from Smitten Kitchen

New Tea Kettle
I bought a new tea kettle! It’s adorable (from Japan) and makes pouring water into my Aeropress so much easier.

Homemade Ghee
Homemade ghee is so so easy. I made it one morning before Reuben went to work. I used Heidi Swanson’s method.

Farmers Market/Healthfood Store Haul
Earlier this week I went to our local health food store and the farmers’ (is that the proper way to spell it?) market. We got all this for less than $45.

I tried cinnamon in my cocoa for the first time the other day! It was good, but I think I need to put more in next time. #latergram #cocoa
I finally broke down and tried cinnamon in my cocoa. It adds a lovely depth of flavor. Next time I need to use more…

Avocado Hummus
Avocado hummus. It’s yummy. Helen gobbled down several spoonfuls.

I made doughnuts, guys! For breakfast, even. I had some leftover bread dough from making fry bread tacos last night. We couldn’t think of anything else to make for breakfast, so I fried up the dough, dipped it in butter, and rolled it in powdered and cinnamon sugar. I’m not a doughnut girl, but these were delicious. 
Just so you know, we had eggs as well – it wasn’t an all-carb breakfast. 😉
How was your week?

I like your Friday variety post--keep them up, please. Really appreciated the tip from Deliciously Organic about cooking kale. I just can't eat raw kale--ugh. Your photos are great, and they make we want to try every one of those recipes.
