I have recently been looking at Dominican University and some other local schools. Andrew has a great career right now and we are going to stay in the mid west for awhile longer. As much as I would love to go to North or South Carolina or even Hawaii to get my accreditation, it would not be practical.
As for now, I am doing a bunch of research and trying to start a small business (the Salt Scrubs).
My lunch today was a delicious salad! Considering that it is winter time, I have been more in the mood for comfort foods like warm soups and stews, casseroles, and other hearty dishes that warm the soul, stomach, and home. After buying a good amount of produce from Costco on Sunday, I figured that salads are going to become part of my daily meal plan once again (I don't want my money to go to waste!)
- 1/2 c rolled oats
- 2 T apple butter
- 2 T flax meal
- 2 T soy milk
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1 T dried cranberries
- 1 T chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray 2 small tart pans with cooking spray. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir well. The mixture should be just moist, not wet but not dry (add a little more soy milk if the mixture is too dry). Spoon the mixture equally among the pans and sprinkle with brown sugar. Place in the heated oven and cook until firm and pulling away from the sides of the pan (about 15-20 minutes). Enjoy!
