Grilled Thai Peanut Chicken and Veggie Fried Quinoa

I’m sorry I have been gone for so long. All of my classes decided to have exams at the¬†same time. Isn’t that always how it works though. When it rains it pours, right? I’ve missed blogging so much, but was always so tired and too stressed. I just couldn’t sit down and write something worth reading. But never fear, I am here ūüôā
I am almost done with the chaos for the time being. And I was in serious need of a study break, so why not post?

An ode to peanut butter:

Peanut butter, oh peanut butter/
Where are thou/
oh, thou are right next to me/
and I have a spoon/
how convenient.

My brain is basically a mushy mass of unrelated, crazy thoughts. Don’t judge me.

I love peanut butter. I eat it with everything. Apples, celery, popcorn, toast, crackers, bagels, oatmeal, pancakes, cookies, cereal, rice cakes, and (of course)¬†on a spoon. Is it just me or is one spoonful just not enough? I can’t ever stop at one. I can stop at one chip, I can stop at one cookie, but I can never stop at one spoonful of peanut butter. Since I’ve gotten to school (which is now a little over a month) I have eaten three [and a half], yes THREE, family size jars of peanut butter. That may be a record. I’ll have to check on that.

If you feel like it’s time for an intervention, I would not argue with you. Instead I would agree with you, sneak to my room, and take my peanut butter (that I’m hoarding) and run for it.

*Hello, my name is Chelsea and I am completely addicted to peanut butter.*

-Anyway-
I was craving peanut butter [surprise]¬†but it was dinner time and I wouldn’t want to ruin my appetite now would I? So I combined my craving of peanut butter with dinner. This Thai Peanut Chicken is SO good and easy. The sauce is literally 4 (ish) ingredients and takes 2 minutes. Pair it with my veggie fried quinoa and you have one tasty, hunger-quenching dinner.

This is one of my favorite meals to make because it is ridiculously easy and it SO DARN DELICIOUS. You’ll just have to try it out and see for yourself!

Almond butter Pumpkin pie oatmeal

My dad really loves his breakfast routine. He literally eats the same thing every single day, for YEARS. For the past, ohhh, five years he has eaten a big bowl of Cheerios with a glass of orange juice for breakfast. He switches cereals around about every decade or so.
And, let me tell you, you would be hard pressed to get him to eat something else.
Well, I never fully understood how he could eat the same thing and never get tired of it..until I started my second year of college and really fell in love with oatmeal.
I ate oatmeal every morning for the entire year, with very few exceptions, and never got sick of it. I did, however, vary the type of oatmeal I ate… Be ready, this blog will soon be inundated with many, many oatmeal recipes.
We will begin with this very simple, yet oh so tasty Almond butter Pumpkin pie oatmeal recipe.
I know it’s no where near pumpkin season yet, but I had a can and decided to make lots of pumpkin inspired dishes. I had¬†just a little pumpkin puree leftover from another recipe and had no idea how to use it..until I woke up the next day and voila!
