Holy crap you guys, I ate my face off this weekend. I ate and ate and ate and ate. And just when I thought I couldn’t eat anymore last night, we got invited to the North End for an authentic Italian dinner. Holy bloat.
Last week Len and I decided on a no desert during the week rule. You see, normally we have dessert every single night. And I’m not talking a fudge pop here people. I’m talking real desserts– large quantities of Ben and Jerry’s, carrot cake, eclairs. We do it up. So we stopped the madness, until Friday that is. Friday night I had a beautiful pumpkin ice cream cone with chocolate sprinkles, Saturday night I had gummy candy (weird choice) and Sunday I had ginger cookies and a cannoli. My arteries are officially clogged.
I did manage to get some healthy cooking in this weekend however. This recipe may sound really weird but trust me, it was delish!
Sweet and Spicy Mash (serves 4 huge portions)
4-5 large apples
lots of cinnamon
lots of pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup (?) brown sugar (or any other sweetener)
lots of curry
can chick peas
Slice apples and put them in a skillet on medium heat with some water, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and sweetener of choice. Let them cook down to desired consistency.
Once apples are cooked down, add squash to pan and let heat through.
Add curry– I use a lot but it will vary depending on personal preference.
Add chick peas and let all the flavors blend together.
Serve and top with goat cheese.
**I’m pretty sure that if I owned a restaurant no one would come.
