grrr. I regress. I am five.

My tastes have been running along very childlike lines these days. Probably midterm stress coupled with the sudden news that Pomme - ie: the best, most esoteric, kitchen-wizardy, art-star, witty, gentle amazing roommate ever in existence - is moving back to Toronto in a few days... ;____;
(serious weepage. but I'm being stoic)

So I'm eating mac and cheese. Because, well... yay. Slurpy noodles. Susan V-style. Comforting yes... although next time I will leave the vegetables out of my comfort food, no matter how much I seem to have been in a "red & green cube" kinda mood that day (check out the tomato, cuke and basil salad behind the pasta - like eating christmas-y legos!)

Then I scratched this itch I had for loads of sweet beans and ZOMG I ACTUALLY BUY A FAKE MEATS. See hot dog? Delicious. Specially with V-con cheater baked beans, sauteed smoky mystery greens I found in the fridge, and scrambled tofu from Aux Vivres. (btw, it tasted more like egg than any scramble I've ever had, but I couldn't really finish it... I've been spoiled on Vwav scramble I think).

And that up there is a gorgeous slice of procrastination. Essay-writing, smehn - Vcon apple peanut butter caramel bars instead! I used oat flake cereal instead of graham crackers, cause the crackers I thought I had in the pantry smelled intensely of 20-year-old warehouse, gross. But crushed cereal plus a bit of sugar worked great! I kinda wish they were apple-yer. But nonetheless they are coated in peanut butter caramel, and that stuff could make rocks taste good, sooo...... I now have a pan full of PB-love to pick at while I attempt to stuff 10 hours of meticulous drawing into... exactly 10 hours until class. WEE. I <3 LIFE. :)

Ha! You made beanie weenies! I hope you enjoyed them and were comforted by them.

Those apple pb caramel bars - omg I love those. I froze a bunch and it was still good 6 months later.

If this is what childlike food looks like, I wanna be a child again, too. Mmmmm, those bars!

Oh my, that "gorgeous slice of procrastination" is AMAZING!!! Nice choice, my fellow Liz ;0)

Hang in there with the stress!!! Don't let it get you down; and keep eating those comforting, "child-like" foods!! :0)

I NEED some of your procrastination food right now!!! Well...er...minus the procrastination part. I'm toeing the line of ridiculousness right now with my lack of on-timeness. And hey, the food looks comforting, delicious, and perfect for midterms. I wish I had some right now! Good luck with everything!!

Carrie said...

Mmm...all of that food looks so good! Especially the peanut butter caramel...and for some reason the hot dog with those beans is making me salivate. Good luck with your mid terms!

Good luck with your assignments/midterms! I guess I am always five years old, because I'm always eating macaroni. :o)

Yum! I love mac n' cheez. I like mine with veggies, though - throw in some broccoli or some kale and I'm a happy girl.

Those apple peanut butter bars are seriously going on my Must Make list for this weekend.

Mac & cheese sounds good to me, but those bars! Ooh, the bars!

I believe that occasional regression is terribly important. So is mac and cheeze. And yummy bars.

Erin said...

The mac n cheese looks so good, especially with all the extra veggies. Hooray for kiddy food!

Bex said...

I love adding peas to my mac and cheese, I've just always loved peas. I was a strange child.

I'm so sorry you're losing Pomme. I know she's been such a great roommate for you. There's always comfort food...
