Vegetables! I need some recipes!

I’ve been eating more vegetables lately. I’ve noticed, though, that I need to add some pizazz to my recipes! I have made ratatouille, but besides that I just either microwave, steam, saute or bake plain vegetables without any flair. So, my question to you all is…

Do you have any vegetarian recipes? Good yummy ones! 😀

Please, add links and such to the comments below. Also, no hummus recipes. I really like hummus, I just want something different. 🙂 Thanks!

Why’s it so hot??? Blech!

Um, yeah. I usually don’t complain about the weather, but it really did get too hot, too quickly. Yes, I know it’s not going to last, but I’m still going to complain. 😛

I can’t wait until Wednesday when we get a nice cool front. It’s going down about 20 degrees to normal spring temperature. We’re also getting some April showers as well. Love those April showers.

Okay, I guess I didn’t complain too much. You know, what I hate the most is the humidity. When it’s hot here, it’s usually humid. Ick. Can’t stand it!!! *sigh*

Well, I guess I’m done for now. I’m going to make a nice cold smoothie! Not only will it cool me off, but I’ll get a serving of fruit as well. Win/win! 😀

Chicken Steak

I’m close to Philly and most of my life I’ve eaten steak sandwiches. I love them. I, for some reason, never liked them with cheese on them. What’s weirder is I love cheese. I’m just not fond of my steak sandwiches with cheese. That’s also why I don’t call them cheesesteaks. I prefer mine with fried onions. 🙂

Why am I talking about this now? It’s because I had chicken steak for dinner. No, not chicken fried steak. That’s a whole other yumminess. Oh, why not beef, you ask? I stopped eating beef a while back ago. I also stopped eating cheese too. I’m dairy free. That’s doesn’t matter anyway because I wouldn’t have put cheese on my chicken steak anyway. I’ll talk about being dairy free in another post at another time, though.

There’s really no point to this blog. I haven’t had chicken steak for a while and I was wondering why because I love it. It’s funny, when I was younger I thought every major city in the U.S. had steak sandwiches and people selling soft pretzels on the street. I love Philly food!

I prefer to make them myself or order from someone nearby. I know, I’m a bad Philly girl. Then again, I can’t really be called a Philly girl because I never lived in Philly. Just the suburbs of Philly.

I’ll probably talk about soft pretzels in another post as well. They deserve their own post. Yes, they’re that great.

So, what are some of your regional specific foods? Does your city have one? Let me know.

Cilantro Please Don’t Die

I bought a cilantro plant from the supermarket yesterday. It’s already drooping today. It’s probably going to die. 😦 I don’t know why I bought it, I have a black thumb. Every plant I’ve tried to take care of usually dies. I had second thoughts about buying it, but I did anyway.

Well, I did make some really yummy guacamole today though. I’m really hoping it’ll last so I don’t have to keep buying cilantro. If anyone has any plant tips for my poor plant leave a comment.
