10 cheeses in DA HOUSE!

July 19, 2010 § 24 Comments

Any Bieber fans out here? If so, I got a little present for you:

Last night Dmitri followed a How to draw Justin Bieber tutorial online and put this on my bed as a “surprise.” Except that I wasn’t a Bieber fan. He did this just to provoke me because I’m more like a Bieber UN-Fever.

Along with this is also the ongoing case of Twilight. Dmitri had ask me 10 million times before and will ask me 10 million times more which “team” I was on.

Team Anti-Twilight. That’s my answer.

He, however, reacts differently. Dmitri reasons that Edward is Bella’s one true love, and he has been so loyal and protective of her. It’d be cruel and inhuman for Bella to turn against Edward and go for Jacob.

In the end, however, he went for Team Anti-Bella. After all, Bella was the cause of all this chaos. She was the sad, depressed girl that everyone wants, vampires or not.

+ Do you watch Twilight? Which team are you on, or would be?

Anyways, I don’t think anybody wants to listen to me talk about Bieber or Twilight forever! How about some In a Jiffy Curry Chickpea Burger?

I’ve been seeing this over and over again on Angela’s blog, and have been reading about her raves about them. It was time to give them a try on my own!

I followed her recipe to the tee, because last time that I tried making some variations on vegan burgers it was a total disaster. I wasn’t ready to risk it again.

I made these last night after dinner so that they’ll be ready for dinner today. All I did was reheat them in the oven! I love easy peasy dinners :-D. I served mine on a bed of arugula, some fresh beets (also roasted last night), feta, some olives, a blob of TJ’s cilantro hummus, and a drizzle of Walden Farm’s Raspberry Viniagrette.

This was my very first time having fresh beets! And oh my word I have been living in the dark when I thought canned beets were good enough. How very wrong I was! Fresh beets are 10000000000 times sweeter than canned ones. They were also very easy to make. Just wrap them up in aluminum foil as you would for baked potatoes, pop them in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for an hour, and you got your beets! When cooled, simply peel off the skin and enjoy! Never, ever again will I slip back to that darkness of canned beets.

During dinner with Dmitri, the conversation of cheese came up. After the cheese-or-no-cheese on pizza conversation from yesterday, I learned that a few of you are die-hard cheese fans. I love cheese, especially the soft creamy ones, like brie. But sometimes the excess oil and grease on restaurant pizzas are too much for my poor tummy! I do enjoy moderate amount of full-fat cheese from time to time though. Delicious with some crackers and a glass of wine, because I’m classy like that :-).

Dmitri and I listed out the types of cheese we have currently in our refrigerator:

  1. Mozzarella: bought this past weekend for pizza.
  2. Brie: Our all-time favorite.
  3. Gouda: Wanted to try some other cheese besides Brie two weekends ago, but realized we’re still Brie-fans.
  4. Shredded Sharp Cheddar: Bought when the boy made Taco Bake.
  5. Parmesan: Always good on pasta and whatnots right?
  6. Cottage cheese: I’m currently the only consumer.
  7. Laughing Cow Light Swiss: Again, guilty here.
  8. Soy cheese, American flavor: Got these a long time ago, but still good!
  9. String cheese: From Trader Joe’s. Hey they make the perfect on-the-go snacks!
  10. Feta: As pictured above.

Conclusion: I think the types of cheeses above outnumber the type of veggies we have currently in the house. Is that a good or bad thing?

Anyways, for my dessert today I made myself another watermelon shake. These things are soooo good for hot summer days!

Like my new nails? 😀

In other news, I ordered The Yoga Body Diet two days ago from Amazon after seeing it on Crystal’s blog. I’ve been meaning to get it but somehow I kept holding back. When I saw it again the other day, I just went for it. If I’ve seen it 6 times already and have been wanting to get it, this is totally a sign that that book and I are meant to be together. I got to use the 2-day Free shipping because I am now an Amazon Prime member! Amazon is currently giving out free Amazon Prime membership for students who have email addresses ending in .edu. So college students out there, what are you waiting for?

I thought the book would arrive Wednesday, but apparently it was too excited to come greet me. I gave it a very warming welcome when it came to me this afternoon.

My other yoga books were also very nice to this newbie in the collection. They embraced her like she was part of the family already.

Hopefully I’ll have time to dig into this book about doshas (or each person’s body constitutions, how one should eat, live, and exercise based on their doshas) in the next couple of weeks. I’ll be updating you guys on what I’ve learned!

It will have to be goodbye for now my friends. Some local band are holding a concert in a park near us featuring The Beatles covers. Yay parks, crowds, and music! 😀


+ How many types of cheeses do you have in your fridge right now?

    I have zero cheese because I don’t eat dairy but even when I did? Wasn’t a cheese fan. Actually, when I ate dairy, I still didn’t eat much of it because I never liked the taste. Except for milk chocolate.. that was the only good thing.

    I’m Anti-Twilight too! Stephanie Meyer is such a BASIC writer and it pains me to see that she has somehow blinded everyone to that fact.

  • CourtandWhit says:

    We probably have just about the same amound of cheese in our fridge right now, if not more! Our family LOVES cheese. We have string cheese(about 3 diff. flavors), mozzerella, swiss, cheddar, pepperjack, mexican, laughing cow, parmesan, and feta. Wow, lol who knew we actually had that much cheese.


  • Monet says:

    This was a great post! I think you two are hilarious…and I would agree with you…I’m on team anti-Twilight for sure! And I loved reading about all your yummy cheeses…you two would fit well with me and my husband!

  • Chelsea says:

    Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂 Cheese cheese cheese, I used to love cheese well I guess I still do, by my stomach doesn’t. I have fake cheese in my fridge which is made from something that is def not cheese anything-and its a little odd tasting not gonna lie.
    Thanks for the heads up about Beets, I personally love beets and have eaten them from a can-but now I shall go out and get some fresh ones 🙂

    And by the way, Team Jacob, have you seen him without his shirt on? helloooo hahha

  • UGH – I’m with you. I don’t get the whole Justin Bieber OR Twilight thing. lol
    Those chickpea burgers look amazing!! Don’t you love making dinner beforehand so you’re all set to go the next day/later/whenever?
    I just have two types of cheese – feta and goat! Feta is definitely my favorite, but goat cheese is so good with jam 🙂

  • thehungryscholar says:

    That Justin Bieber thing cracks my shit up.

    I am anti-Twilight too. Have you read the books? Horrible writing!

  • melita says:

    i just found your blog, i love it! i’m curious as to what your thoughts on the new book will be. hugs!!

  • 0 because Im living out of a suitcase until mid september :(((

  • That picture totally cracked me up. And I can’t stand to read the Twilight books but have seen the movies. I proclaimed myself a member of “Team Bella’s Dad” which is apparently not OK 😉 My mom, however, is a big fan of Twilight (…) and seems to think “Team Jacob” is where it’s at.

  • Kat says:

    Ok SERIOUSLY jealous of all the cheese there girl! And I DEF agree with your boy!! Edward loves Bella regardless…he knows he shouldnt, and he even puts himself through hell and almost has himself killed because he just cant live without her. I LOVE love…Im a hopeless romantic, so I always cheer for the characters who are SUPPOSED to be together. How can you vote against Romeo anyway? 😉

  • teenagehealthfreak says:

    we have some goat cheese, swiss cheese, colby jack cheese, laughingcow cheese, cottage cheese, and string cheese. wow never thought about that!lol your salad looks very appealing. 🙂

  • Wei-Wei says:

    Types of cheeses – two! Shredded parmesan, and 3 wedges of Laughing Cow Light. I love that stuff. 😀 But dude, that is a LOT of cheese! Gotta be pricey 😉


  • Crystal says:

    YAY you got the book! Let me know what you think. I like how it says that they expect you to alter their suggestions to your needs. It’s very flexible in that sense.

    And we have like NO cheese our fridge. I collect yogurt though, so I have a ton of that in there.

    And on a last note, I am not a JB or Twilight fan. I don’t get what all the fuss is about.

  • Leah @ Why Deprive? says:

    I usually have about the same amount of cheese in my fridge. Currently I only have cheddar and goats cheese. Its a little sad, but its for my own good. After I consumed 2.5 blocks of cheese in less than a week I realized it was probably time to cut back a little!

  • kaztronomic says:

    I had no idea about the free Amazon prime! I wish I knew about that last week, when I ordered a bunch of stuff off it and now I’m waiting until the 28th for it to get here. 😀 Sweet, thanks!

    I can’t eat cheese, but my fella loves his cheddar. 😀

  • haha awesome drawing!! ❤

    im so jealous u have the Yoga Body Diet. i have to order it in, went to the book store yesterday but they said they dont carry it. BOO!!

  • Megan says:

    I want to hear all about that yoga book! And that drawing seriously cracked me up. =P
    Also I’m so glad you talked about beets bc I have some that for some reason I keep putting off using… maybe tomorrow is the day!

  • lisaou11 says:
