Well, today I woke up really late. I try not to sleep in past 9 but I got up at 10:14. I was just so comfortable. I slept with a heating pad last night because my room was freezing. It's in the back corner of the house and no heat ever gets to it. I also had a really weird dream, but I won't get into that haha They always involve some random person (guy) I haven't seen in a while. But anyway, I have to take care of my sister today. She's sick with what I had last week. I feel so bad for her- I was practically on my death bed haha I made her some soup and Oreo cream cheese cupcakes. She loved the cupcakes, but how could you resist Oreos and cream cheese? She downstairs watching Mrs. Doubtfire and I'm wondering why I'm not watching it with her. haha That's a great movie!!
As for the recipe today, I have two because they were both just really good. First off, there's the pumpkin seed milk I found on GoneRaw. I really liked it and it didn't taste overly pumpkin-like at all. It just tasted really clean and pure if that makes any sense. haha I don't really know how to describe milk. The other recipe is for red wine rice. I was watching 30 Minute Meals with Rachael Ray and figured I'd make it. I really like wine, even though I'm 19 and shouldn't drink it. My mom lets me have a glass once in a while if I'm in the mood. This was honestly the best rice I've ever had. The wine made is really buttery somehow. I just loved it. I ate it for breakfast the next day. Yummy.
Here's the recipes:
Pumpkin Seed Milk
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, soaked
1 tbsp agave nectar
3 1/2 cup water
1 tsp pure vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
Directions: Soak the pumpkin seeds for at least 2 hours before making the milk. Blend the pumpkin seeds with 1/2 the water until very smooth. Add the agave, vanilla, and rest of the water and blend again. Strain and enjoy!
Red Wine Rice with Grapes
1 cup red wine or burgandy wine
1/2 cup brown rice
3/4 cup red and black grapes seedless grapes, halved
Directions: Heat wine over medium until it starts to boil. Add rice, cover, and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Add grapes after 12 minutes, turn burned off, and let sit for 5 minutes. The grapes get soft and delicious. I served mine over a bed of fresh spinach.
