Happy Sunday, ladies! Hope your weekend so far has been fantastic.
I got all excited last night because I was going to make my second-ever batch of overnight oats. They were going to be chocolate mint oats, since I had some shelf-stable chocolate peppermint soy milk on hand and I thought it would be interesting. I mixed up half a packet of Kashi GoLean truly vanilla oatmeal and 1/4 cup of the soy milk, thinking it would turn out nice and thick just like my last batch, even though I wasn’t using yogurt this time.
Well…not quite. It was very very yummy, but it was basically like a thin chocolate mint smoothie with some oats thrown in. Not bad, but not the creamy consistency I was going for. Oh, well. I’m going to try again tonight, using an entire packet of Kashi GoLean and 1/4 cup of the soy milk. Hopefully it’ll turn out better.
I also was inspired last night by Carrie’s (from Moves ‘N Munchies) fudgies. They looked so good, but I didn’t have any agave nectar or vanilla extract (oh, the joys of living in a dorm!) So I just nixed the vanilla and substituted a packet of Truvia for the agave. They didn’t look at all like them—they were too watery for some reason, so I added a teaspoon of crunchy AB. I poured the mix into a Ziploc bag and popped it in the freezer overnight. When I tried it in the morning, it was decent—a little too bitter and icy, though. Hopefully I can try again next weekend when I’m at home and have more supplies on hand.
And for my final (hopefully) food fail of the day, I was ready to make a yogurt mess for my lunch. It was going to be strawberry Oikos, 1 cup of Whole Foods Peanut Butter Pows cereal (if you like peanut butter at all, please please please try this cereal, it’s amazing) and a banana. I wasn’t expecting my Greek yogurt to be FROZEN, however. Yep, just gotta love my tiny fridge that freezes things not in the freezer and lets frozen things get thawed. So I tried to stir up the yogurt to mix up the strawberry, which was hard. I ended up eating all the parts separately. Not bad, but I was looking forward to another yogurt mess!
Oh, well. I still liked my food for the most part. And there’s always next time, right?
Q’s: Do you experience food fails a lot? Are they epic (inedible, burnt, etc.) or just less than you expected?
|Thankfully, I've never burnt anything this bad...yet!|
