Butternut Squash Slaw-ful
Shane had class tonight so I took it upon myself to make a dinner at which he’d be sure to turn his nose up. There’s a perfectly fine frozen pizza in the freezer when he gets home!
I honestly wasn’t sure what I’d make with my expanded creativity, but my eyes landed on this:
Both have an expiration date coming up soon…time to put to use! With the broccoli slaw and butternut squash soup, I made butternut slaw!
I started by sautéing half an onion in a little olive oil until soft, and then added the bag of broccoli slaw. Actually, I added some tofu I had leftover to give the dish some protein, and then I added the broccoli slaw – and cooked for about 5 minutes.
Right It was…ready for it? Slawful.
Here’s what I wanted to say: “It tasted delicious, too! Slightly sweet and perfectly nutty, with a hearty crunch from the broccoli slaw. It definitely satisfied the butternut squash soup craving I’d had ever since seeing Lindsay post this morning on her blog, too.”
But here’s what I really say: It was bland, unsatisfying, and I wished I’d had a backup dinner to eat in place of this one. At least it had one saving grace…
The hunk of cinnamon bread on the side!!
Now I’m kind of jealous of Shane’s frozen pizza…
Dessert, which was one of these cookies, was delicious!
I stopped myself at one because I realized there were only three. cookies. left from yesterday’s batch. Granted, I did send Shane’s dad home with four yesterday, but that means between Shane and I, we ate 12 cookies in 36 hours. Oof…maybe I shouldn’t have done that math!
Anyway, instead of having yet another cookie, I switched over to one of my old favorites for dessert – a Vitatop!
This is the chocolate banana flavor. I simply toasted it and put on a schmear of almond butter. Although Deep Chocolate is by far my favorite vitatop, I really liked the chocolate banana flavor! You can see other vitatop reviews on RAN here and here.
Disclaimer: I received a box of the Vitatops to review on the blog. However, my opinions and review are solely my own!
Have a lovely night, friends. Friday’s tomorrow – woohoo!!
What’s your go-to dessert right now? Mine’s been cookies!!…Clearly.
