I really do love agave. It is a sweetener made from the agave plant. It is supposed to have all sorts of heath benefits over sugar, but I really don't care about all that. I like agave because it has the consistency of honey, but I think it tastes a lot better. I use it in tea, coffee, cupcakes, frosting. I've also been making a agave mustard dressing. The dressing is very easy to throw together. Just mix together agave, dijon mustard, and a neutral flavored oil. You may want to start with equal parts agave and dijon and about a third of the amount of oil. Add more agave or mustard to taste. The dressing is great on salads, and I would like to try it on chicken or pork chops.
School was canceled today due to snow so I was able to take pictures of most of my food.
Breakfast tortillas: egg, potato, cheese, and BBQ sauce.
Afternoon snack of cashews, pine nuts, and pistachios
Supper: Spinach salad with hard boiled eggs and agave mustard dress. I also had a grilled cheese sandwich.
In addition to what is shown above I also had leftover goulash for lunch.
