  1. Homemade Bubble Tea

    August 22, 2014 by pb&v

    The other day my mom and I took a look into our pantry and noticed that we have a CRAP TON of stuff in there and yet, we are never able to find anything to eat. There is so much stuff that we can’t even tell what we have in there! Today, we decided to re-organize the pantry and the refrigerator and have made it our goal to eat only out of the pantry, fridge, and freezer until we’ve managed to dwindle it all down to nothing, only going to the store for non-food items and little things to complete a recipe. For example, if we wanted to make something and have everything for that recipe but cauliflower, we would go out and buy some cauliflower.

    We started off today by eating some of the leftovers we had hiding in the fridge: our last Salad Roll Whopper, butter beans, mashed potatoes, and leftover tofu scramble with soy chorizo and potatoes. For dinner, we grabbed a can of jackfruit and made some BBQ jackfruit sandwiches with coleslaw (using the leftover cabbage from the salad rolls) and mac and cheese (using the rest of our mac and cheese sauce we had in the fridge and a bit of some pasta from the pantry. So far, so good!

    We’ve already got some plans for that leftover coleslaw too! Field Roast Frankfurters (from the fridge, buns from the freezer) with coleslaw on top mmmmmmmm.

    Now back to the whole “organizing the pantry” thing…

  2. Peach Pie Oatmeal

    One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh, local produce we load up on. Among all the various fruits and vegetables, peaches have always been a favorite. Going peach picking is definitely a highlight of the summer because, seriously, who doesn’t love a nice juicy peach fresh off the tree? Nobody. I get so excited while picking them that I can’t even wait until we get home to dig in and end up picking a couple off the tree and eating them like an apple while I continue to pick. Mmmmmm, peaches.

    Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs) is a heart condition where you have an irregular heartbeat that consists of a normal beat, followed by an extra beat, a slight pause, and very strong normal beat. It basically feels like your heart skips a beat when it happens. It aggravated my mom for several months, so she decided to cut out sugar and processed foods and BAM! Problem solved!

    Or so we thought…
