I may not be Thomas Edison, but…
I have invented some pretty sweet things in my day
Hey friends and happy Hump Day! How does it feel to be half way done a wonderfully long week!? Who is looking forward to the weekend as much as me? I need another “homework weekend”. Call me a nerd, but hey, the road to becoming a Registered Dietitian is a busy one! Full of traffic (or assignments, whatever).
I first need to thank you all for your support with my new evening snack It’s nice to know I have bloggy friends already I also loved hearing about your favourite exercises Thanks for commenting!
So, I am not exactly what came over me today, but I felt extremely creative and invented a few things
Maybe I had extra brain power from all of the energy I was provided with from my protein yogurt last night??
My first invention was created at breakfast time. I was inspired by my outrageous craving for sushi (it has been a full 3 weeks since I have had sushi and I am going cray cray over here!)
Here is my first invention of the day: a wonderful topping option for your toast, english muffin, etc. featuring my favourite maki roll innards…
Avocado and Mango!
(2 Tbsp of ripe avocado smashed on a toasted english muffin topped with thinly sliced mango)
Too weird for you? Try it any way! Live by one of my favourite sayings: “You don’t know until you try!”
This was outrageously tasty. I couldn’t even contain myself. I may have started to sing and dance…
My second invention of the day does not involve food, but I should seriously patent this baby
After my celebratory song and dance sesh around my kitchen, I figured I should get ready for school, so I wouldn’t have to go with bed head As I in the middle of straightening my hair I was beginning to get very frustrated; every time I set my straightener down on the counter it would sliiiiide in the direction of the cord and almost burn me. I am an extreme baby and knew I wouldn’t be able to attend school if I got a burn from the hot stick, so I invented a very practical device that quite possible saved my skin from horrendous burns
I present to you…
The Hair Straightener Stabilizer!
How does it work!? Well, it’s quite easy actually Simply take your toothpaste tube and press the end of your hair straightener into it It’s like a memory foam for your hair straightener Genius? Yes? I thought so.
I have also become quite the professional marinade developer Maybe I’ll be a Top Chef some day?
Or even better? The next Rachel Ray!
Watch for my face plastered all over pots and pans at a store near you
I can only dream…
For now I will just share my recipes and creations with all of you I have no problem with that!
Spicy Soy and Basil
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 – 3 Tbsp Tabasco sauce
2 Tbsp basil (fresh or dried, but preferably fresh)
Melt in Your Mouth Chicken
1/2 cup red wine (or red wine vinegar, whatever you have on hand)
1 Tbsp dry mustard
1 – 2 Tbsp dill (fresh or dried, but preferably fresh)
Quick Stir-Fry Sauce
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp chilli garlic sauce
1/4 cup chopped green onions
I used all of these this week and all were exceptional I just toss stuff together, but I thought I would share because I know some people like to try different combo’s I used the spicy soy basil with pork tenderloin, the chicken marinade with, you guessed it, chicken, and the quick stir-fry sauce with scallopini.
The rest of my day was pretty fab. It was full of great eats, a good library study sesh with my friend, warm weather, blueberry tea, and some X Factor (I currently have it on in the background). I didn’t know how I would feel about this show. I was pretty critical of Simon and Paula creating a new show together, but it’s actually pure amazement. I highly suggest you guys tune in and let your jaws drop at all of the breath-taking performances I think there is some serious talent on this show and will continue to watch it It’s definitely not like watching Idol.
Do you follow a recipe for marinades or create your own?
What shows are you watching this season?
Who is your favourite chef? I love Jamie Oliver. I wish he was my hubby.
What a heart throb! Gorgeous and he can cook
