Thug Week - Day 2

I've been running my feet off for more than a month, and in honor of being able to enjoy a lazy Sunday I cooked myself up a hearty Thug brunch.  What better way to start the morning than Oat Griddle Cakes with Blueberry Sauce? 

Especially when one has to take a trip to the store because she forgot that one key ingredient for the blueberry sauce. 

Several gridles cakes disappeared before I took this photo.  They were so satisfying - and gluten and dairy free!

With such a hearty brunch, I skipped right over to dinner - Pasta with Cauliflower Sauce.  Sounds a little weird, I know.  I am a huge fan of mac and cheese, fettuccini alfredo, and stuffed manicotti, that any pasta  without cheese usually just seems lacking.  But this recipe actually was so flavorful and creamy that I didn't even mind the lack of cheese.  Plus (and pretty cleverly if I do say so myself) I used orange cauliflower to give it a more convincing cheese-like appearance.  Not too apparent in the photo because of the dark color of the whole-wheat pasta, but honestly it was a convincing macaroni cheese color in the bowl!
