Dinners, Pie & a Meme

First.. a lazy dinner. Nobody's around.. I'm just hanging out with myself on a Sunday.. I should have whipped up something elaborate because I had all the time in the world. Instead I made oriental flavored Top Ramen. I threw in tomatoes, broccoli, squash and tofu. And you know what? It was delicious.

I also made Squirrel's Peanut Butter Chocolate Silk pie. This.. is.. delicious. And ridiculously easy.. honest. Make it!

An inside look at the deliciousness!

And tonight I made the Moroccan Chickpea Patties from Vive le Vegan! I didn't have any fennel so I put in some zucchini.. not the best substitution I know but.. whatever. They were good but a little bit mushy, I can probably fix that next time. Chris said they were good but can be improved so yeah. Next time. We had them with roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli.
Vicki tagged me for this Meme. Hmm.. let's get to know me.

T is for Ten Things I Hate About You. My favorite movie of all time. I can quote along with the whole thing. There's not much else I can say... see it. Now.
A is for Alto...alto saxophone! I've played the sax since I was in 4th grade and.. I stuck with it and.. now it's my main instrument for my music education major at college.. and I'm treasurer of the sax studio! (Remind me to tell you more about that later.)
N is for Neat. Anybody that knows me.. I am ridiculously organized. I love to file things, label things, categorize, straighten, organize, clean. It's pretty damn close to OCD. Whatever!
I is for Indian! I am part Ho-chunk Indian on my Dad's side, from Winnebago, Nebraska. Yeah.. I go to pow wows and stuff. Yeah.. I can make it rain.
A is for Apple Pie! The first pie I ever made ENTIRELY by myself! Crust and all. Check the entry before this. It was glorious.

That's the best I can do! These things get around so fast that I don't know who to tag. :-/

Ramen, yeah! Simple, but I love them. I can eat them plain or dress them up like you did.

The pie looks awesome. Next time I need to bring a dessert, that is the ticket.

I'm with you guys. The chickpea patties are ok, but not great (even with the fennel).

I'm making those chickpea patties this week, it's in my mealplanner and everything! They looks so awesome!

Yeah, Tania! Thanks for doing the meme - it's cool to learn more about you! I could have used an "i" for Indian also -- I'm part CHerokee, though I haven't been to a Pow Wow (I remember your photo), and sadly can't make it rain! lol! Looking forward to hearing about you takin' care of the sax studio $$$$!!! In the food dept, your Peanut Butter Chocolate Silk pie looks awesome! I have damn tasty and will get on that soon....

Hey, sometimes when you're all by yourself and have all the time and freedom in the world, that's exactly when you want the easy comfort food! Everything looks great. I love your list, too. I'm semi-OCD about organizing and filing too. Oh, and I have fond memories of "10 things I hate about you." I watched it when I was in Brazil, because it was the only English-language thing on t.v.- ha ha!

Loved your meme... Ten Things I Hate About You is a fabulous movie, and I like it even more because it's based on one of Shakespeare's most hilarious plays! Oh yes, and congrats on your first pie--it looks absolutely outstanding and too cute for words!

Yay for music! Yay for pies! I'm glad you enjoyed it and it turned out so beautifully! And your dinner looks amazing, that broccoli is huge!
