seeing that i had a few vegetables that are good for grilling, i decided to whip out the grill — the george forman that is. i couldn’t decide what i wanted to grill so i did a few: portabello mushroom, zucchini, eggplant and i even added tofu just for the heck of it. and i decided to get “creative” and grill some fruit on the stovetop grill. unfortunately the pineapple i bought the other day is gone, so i was left with apples and/or bananas. i did one of each.
so my photo editing can really use a lot of work, and so can my photo capturing. haha. but you get the idea.
i decided to make a wrap out of the veggies and brown rice.
and added to that wrap i of course had to put some fresh avocado and this hot sauce that i purhchased a month or two ago:
the hot sauce is not hot at all, and it has more of a curry-like taste, which i find yummy for sure. i can definitely taste the cumin!
grilled cinnamon apple slices and banana w/shredded coconut:
the banana was tricky. it was very mushy and hard to get off the grill, but it tasted yummy. on top of the apples i sprinkled cinnamon, and on both fruits i drizzled agave nectar. i really wanted to use honey, but apparently we’re all out!
then earlier today i felt like baking something simple, and i’ve had this recipe bookmarked that i’ve been wanting to try for toasted coconut shortbread. here are the results:

they taste great dipped into tea, or coffee whichever you decide.
