The week in food

I was craving pancakes again, but I thought I would try buckwheat this time.

I just used my whole wheat kefir pancake recipe, but substituted 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour for some of the wheat flour.

Annnnd, I don’t really like these as much. It’s just a personal preference. I think next time I make pancakes I’ll actually put in more oats, too.

Earlier this week I was missing Bandit Burrito (strangely I haven’t found a burrito place that comes close to how good that one was), so I made burrito bowls with black beans, brown/wild rice mix, and grated tofu mixed with taco spice. They were delish. I might have overfilled my bowl just a bit.

The last couple days I’ve been having these mini multi-colored potatoes oven roasted with scrambled eggs.

I love how bright purple the purple ones are inside.

I’ve also been a tea fiend this week. I’ve been buying up my favorite teas, and now that my tea shelf overfloweth, I just want to drink it all the time.

My absolute favorite, though, is Harney & Sons hot cinnamon spice. Thanks to Mike’s parents for having it at their cabin so I could fall in love with it.

Oh, and off topic — I finished “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and watched the Swedish movie. It was one of the first times I could say I loved the movie more than the book. I just needed that visualization to bring the characters to life. I’m reading the second book now, though, and I like it a lot better. I think Larsson must have started to hit his stride as a novelist by book 2.

Also, it makes me want to go to Sweden. As if Swedish design weren’t a compelling enough reason.

*Apologies if you tried to go to my site earlier this week when it was down. Lunarpages decided randomly to just take it down. There was no way for me to fix it when it was down. So Mike and I decided to break up with them. Hopefully the new host will be better!
