The Art of Blooking

February 10, 2010

I’m blogging, as I run back and forth from the kitchen to the table while simultaneously cooking dinner. Welcome, Blooking.  It’s a new art, one which I hope to master. Have you mastered the art of blooking?

This morning, I decided to take another whack at oatmeal… in hopes that my oatmeal cravings had not completely vanquished.

I made myself a beautiful bowl of Banana Oatmeal (half banana cooked in, the other half on top) topped with defrosted blueberries & a scoop of almond butter. Now that, my friends, is a scoop. Adorned with cinnamon, naturally.

It tasted as good as it looks; however, I think I’ll stick to variety for breakfast, not oats everyday. No offense to all my oat-lovin’ readers!

Last night, I tried something new with dinner:

Quinoa Polenta. I warmed it up in a pan, added a little milk to smooth it out, and proceeded to add spinach & garbanzos to the mix. Delish.

Topped with balsamic & mustard roasted brussels sprouts & red onion. How HEAB -ish does this look?

…speaking of supper, Dinner is served!
Egyptian Edamame Stew

Egyptian Edamame Stew. Let me know if you’re interested in the recipe!

    Blooking? Never tried it. When I make a post, that’s ALL I concentrate on.. that and the internet. I’m afraid that if I add another component to my blogging, then I’ll never get a post out! It already takes me over an hour because of my tendency to get distracted. Kudos to you though! Cooking AND creating a post at the same time.. something I can only aspire to do in the veeery far future.

    I have to switch up breakfasts all the time so that I don’t get sick of the same thing. I just wasn’t cut out to be a hard core oatmeal freak. 🙂

    My attempts at “blooking” have been met with various degrees of success… I either forget what I was going to write about, or I smell something starting to burn. Practice makes perfect though, right? 🙂

    I’ve yet to attempt blooking. I’m open to it if or when the opportunity presents itself though! The name reminds me of spelunking though, which is definitely something I want to experience. 😉

    So many amazing eats in one post! I’m almost overwhelmed ;). Oatmeal, quinoa (!!) polenta and edamame stew. Sounds amazing to me!

  11. rustique Says:

    Straight up blooking as I type.

    Quinoa polenta? I had no idea such a wonderful thing existed.

  12. Wow, quinoa polenta sounds like a really interesting concepts.
    I only usually eat polenta when my nonna cooks it for me and it’s my favourite food. I don’t think I could convince her to add quinoa to it (you know how grandmother’s are… set in their ways) but I’ll have to try that myself sometime!

  13. Gracie Says:

    YUM! I’ve never heard of quinoa polenta. But I love quinoa, and I love polenta, so I’m assuming I’d like it =)

    Love the blog, by the way!
