Cooking

So I made Buckwheat Groats for breakfast this morning. Have you guys ever eaten them? One cup of buckwheat groats, two cups of soy milk, one mashed banana and some cinnamon. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. It was...interesting. Not quite as tasty as oatmeal. But judging by the difficulty I had cleaning the pan, that shit is good for my insides if you know what I mean! I don't know if I'll make it again. We'll see.

I'm on kind of a cooking kick now that I've gotten home; eating out so much on our trip sort of got boring and I miss eating home-cooked meals. Not that I'm much of a cook, but I like to have what I like to have, you know? Last night the boy had a steak and mashed potatoes and I had salmon and sweet potatoes. They were delicious, and I love knowing exactly what I'm putting in my mouth.

Tonight we've got a Halloween party to go to and of course I will be the loser with no costume, but I can't put the effort or money into it today. Eh. It will be the first time we've seen all of our friends since the wedding though, so I'm looking forward to that. Hope you all are having a great weekend! I'll leave you with a pic from the wedding!

Ick. Buckwheat Groats sure don't sound very good at all.

Awww, you look lovely - and your husband doesn't look bad either! You both look so happy in the honeymoon picture...

Never eaten buckwheat, although I believe it's supposed to be very easy to digest, and low-GI. Krista, who I love, has some suggestions for things other than porridge to do with it here.

I'm trying some new experiments with cooking at the moment too... unfortunately, not such healthy stuff as you. My husband has discovered I can make cake. I should have kept it from him!
