pumpkin adventure part one

February 24, 2009

i had a little kitchen adventure this afternoon that started with these two babies. they’ve been sitting outside my door since halloween. adventure because i’ve never attempted to cook a “halloween” pumpkin before…

the bigger one had soft spots, so he is being thrown away but the baby still looked good, so he took a little steam 🙂

while he was steaming, i put the seeds in the toaster oven…but forgot about them 😦

and then i freaked out because i was afraid the smoke detector would go off, and my kitchen adventure ended 😦

okay, it really wasn’t that bad, but the kitchen needed to be aired out and i wasn’t in the mood to cook to begin with…

so instead, we went out to the one fast food place that tommy and i can agree on: boloco. i had half a bangkok “inspired burrito” with oven roasted organic tofu, spicy peanut sauce <3, asian slaw, brown rice, and cucumbers in a ww tortilla.

i only ate half because i had snacked on a couple handful of nuts earlier…

and more so because i was saving room for yogurt! 0% chobani w/ banana and a spoonful of raspberry preserves.

we picked up a couple things at stop and shop while we were out:

    Boloco sounds really good- I’ve never heard of it before but I took a look at their menu and it looks awesome! Especially for a fast food place.
    Can’t wait to see what you do with the pumpkin!

    I love unsweetened silk! And I need some waffles, I hope Kashi expands that out to Canada, because I am jealous! And Boloco looks delicious!

    It seems like there are so many cool places to eat in Boston! Boloco looks really good, I would totally order what you had!
    The pumpkin is very adventurous—normally I just stick with the can 😉

    I used to dine at Boloco all the time when I resided in Boston – great stuff!!

    I have yet to try Boloco, but that burrito has me sold! Can’t wait to see what the pumpkin dish is.
