Eating-food and words
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
The husband and I love Mexican and we need a reason to eat something around those flavors and it does not feel foreign. In my opinion, Mexican and Indian cuisines are cousins.
To celebrate the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, I made a Mexican bowl again, man I love this stuff.
In the bowl,
- Spring mix
- brown rice
- pico de gallo
Sometimes you just eat your own words and today was one such day. I decided to bake, I know! who am I?! The temptation to bake arose when I saw a bag of butterscotch chips lying in the pantry, love these btw!!
I went to all recipes,typed in butterscotch cookies and followed it to the T, except that I swapped the butter for earth balance, added only brown sugar and omitted the white sugar. I was marveled that measuring exactly gives you just the number of cookies mentioned i.e. 12 in this case . The only problem they were cloyingly sweet and this was after omitting the white sugar…I am going to make a much healthier version of these sometime soon but overall I did not hate the final product.
Workout: The husband was not feeling like running outside today, so we headed to the gym where he did his thang and I ran on the treadmill to complete my 5K.
Do you love Mexican food? If yes, what is the best thing you like about it?
I love guacamole and salsa.
