10 cheeses in DA HOUSE!

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