I’ve been home from my little vacation (a.k.a. Midwest tour) for a little over a week now, and slowly but surely, I’m getting back into the swing of things. I really missed the city!
And by “city” I actually mean my kitchen.
And by my “kitchen” I’m really just talking about my food processor. Ha.
I’m kidding! Kind of. I mean, I missed New York too. And Tom, of course (love you, honey!). But my food processor…it had been weeks since I processed, pulsed, or pureed anything! The horror!
(Except for this deliciousness using my mom’s processor. But still.)
Naturally, I busted it out before I even stocked up on groceries.
Ice cream for breakfast anyone?
This is what happens when you’re craving peanut butter + banana but don’t have fresh fruit in the house. A pretty tasty solution, if I don’t say so myself–especially topped with cacoa nibs. Mmmm.
And of course there was this amazing pizza sauce.
I also whipped up a batch of Creamy Hummus–freshly cooked and shelled chickpeas and all!
There is nothing like homemade hummus. Especially this one, which has quickly risen the ranks to become my go-to hummus recipe.
I made another batch of cinnamon-raisin peanut butter as well. Just ‘cuz.
The perfect post-run treat.
I have to say, as much as I loved a change of scenery while I was traveling, it’s great to be running all my old routes again. What was once tired now feels familiar–and even welcome. Plus, it’s fun to run them all with my new garmin.
I’m slightly obsessed!
I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point: If my food processor felt abandoned during my time away, I believe I have more than made up for lost time this past week.
Home is where the
heart food processor is. As they say. ;)
The Cuisinart aside, I’ve also made sure to get my daily dose of oats–hot and cold.
Mostly, I just wanted to show you a few pretty pictures of oats. And on that delicious note, I will leave you.
Do you miss your kitchen when you travel? A weekend away I am happy to do, but after a couple weeks I really start to miss mine.
What’s the one kitchen appliance you couldn’t live without? I think mine’s obvious. ;)
