Instagram Shenanigans

Let’s all just consider for one moment how great the word “shenanigans” is.

Ok. Thanks for indulging me on that one 😉

I’ve been busy with school and musical rehearsals recently, so I haven’t been cooking from recipes too much. However, I’m still doing my best to be creative and fun with what I eat, and, when I can get a good picture, I love to post photos of that on Instagram. I thought I’d post a few of these photos on here as well though, because this blog is not only about recipes that I make; it’s also about just having fun with interesting, creative, pretty, or plain awesome food!

  1. Berry and Chocolate Oatmeal

I just made some plain oatmeal with water and a little salt, then topped it with blueberries, blackberries, pomegranate arils, and extra-dark chocolate. This was supremely delicious, and so fresh and wholesome.

2. Peanut Butter, Jelly, and Banana Oatmeal

Again, this was plain oatmeal, topped with sliced banana, peanut butter, and raspberry jam. I love this combo, especially with really good jam (we got some Spoon Fruit jam from a small company in Michigan. I love Michigan berries!).

3.  Curried Rice, adapted from The Full Helping

Here, I adapted a recipe from The Full Helping titled Creamy Curried Quinoa. I made a ton of changes, like switching out quinoa for rice, but drew heavily from the recipe for guidance. This was actually amazingly delicious, and so, so healthy. It’s seasoned in a very savvy, delicate way that enhances all the natural flavor of vegetables and rice. Also, it made a huge amount of food (like, 5x more than pictured!).

4. Mixed Berry Oatmeal

Um, more oatmeal. I guess you can see what I’m into making right now! But this was really fun to make, and kind of adventurous by my standards. I cooked rolled oats with mixed frozen berries and water, and topped them with ground flax and chocolate PB2. It was yummy, but let’s be honest I was mostly in it for the pretty color 😉

5. Oh She Glows Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yay, cookies! These are Angela Liddon’s Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies, made this very day as a special weekend treat. I’ve featured these cookies on the blog before, and they are a recipe I come back to again and again.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I’ve been up to on Instagram! And if you have an Instagram, please leave your username in the comments section. Let’s be friends! ☺️
