Candy-Goated Crescents

In my pantry today:

  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 2 tbsp feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp goat cheese
  • 1/3 c blackberries
  • 4 tsp honey

It’s not Sunday morning, but breakfast felt like it with coffee, hot bread, fruit and cheese. Granted, I go into all of my “canned, refrigerated bread” purchases knowing that the amount of processing that goes into every can might turn my guts if I looked into it (so I don’t); though it is the poor man’s croissant I still enjoyed this with one pinky finger extended.

Roll out each crescent roll triangle and sprinkle a little feta inside before rolling and baking according to package instructions. When they come out, serve plates with 1/2 of your goat cheese and blackberries covered in 2 tsp of honey. Easy-peasy and 5 spoons!

Power to Ya Health Breakfast!

In my pantry today:

  • 1 c cooked steel-cut oats
  • 1 tbsp ground golden flax seeds
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/8 tsp asafoetida
  • 1 tbsp walnuts

So this one’s real easy once you’ve made a batch of the steel-cut oatmeal and stocked it in the fridge (or if you’ve just finished making said batch). Stir all that junk up there, ‘cept the nuts, into your oatmeal. Once hot, put it in a bowl (if’n you’re feeling hifallutin) and top with a few walnuts. It’s a delicious experience — I will never again eat instant oatmeal because I did not know how delicious the true face of oatmeal was. The consistency is amazing — silky without being slimy, then a chewable texture that the instant stuff doesn’t provide. It’s almost more pudding-like than any oatmeal I’ve before experienced. 5 damn spoons, yo.
