Thank you so much for all the suggestions for what to do with my beautiful cucumbers! I will definitely try something new tomorrow night.
And for those that asked, I live near St. Paul, Minnesota and the weather is always crazy here – you never know what you’ll get. Lately it has just been HOT. I can’t wait for Autumn.
Dinner tonight was Chicken Fajitas.
On the stove:
Chicken breast, green pepper, red pepper, onion
My plate — notice the nice globs of avocado on the side. Avocados were MADE for fajitas.
I love making a quick and easy dinner but I wasn’t done in the kitchen just yet.
The original recipe is taken from this book:
But I changed a few things which are noted below. Have you heard of this book? J and I followed our blood type diet for a few months when we first got married, and it wasn’t easy to eat dairy-free, wheat-free, soy-free and have restrictions on certain fruits/vegetables. I really do admire those of you who do follow such dietary restrictions. I know it cannot be easy.
Banana Blueberry Oat Muffins
Makes 12 muffins
1 cup oat flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup canola oil
½ cup brown sugar
1 mashed banana
1 egg + 1 egg white
½-1 cup blueberries or ½ cup walnuts or both!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pans with spray or muffin liners. Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl and all wet ingredients in another. Blend together. *Don’t overmix the batter like I did, the batter became very thin*Fill muffin cups half full and bake for 20-22 minutes.

These are perfect treats for J because they are dairy-free and they taste delicious.
Tonight I felt like a Top Chef…and a Top Baker — dinner was great and the muffins were a success! I love how the whole house smells wonderful and warm. Yes, even when it is 90 degrees outside I like a warm house because of baking! (as long as the AC is working)
Are you going to watch Top Chef tonight?
Plans: Watch Top Chef (how many times can I mention this in one post?), say goodbye to M and T (moving to Texas tomorrow morning!) and get to bed early. J and I have a 5:30am running date!
Question of the day: Do you like to bake? What is your favorite cookie/bread/bar/pie/cake that you have made yourself?
Have a great night,
