Improvisation- The Good and The Bad

 I improvised for lunch and ended up with this delicious fried rice concoction. 


Appx: 1 cup cooked brown rice, 1 egg, 1/4 cup veggie protein crumbles, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 1/2 cup frozen green beans and 2 tbsp Sesame Ginger Light dressing. Oh. yeah.

I was fiending for my iced coffee fix and wasn't planning on leaving the house until Joe gets home (we're going grocery shopping tonight). I had some freshly brewed iced coffee in the fridge but had used up the last of my soymilk this AM. What's a girl to do?

Improvise.

Sometimes my culinary bravery pays off. Today was not one of those days.
It looks pretty, but BOY did it taste bad. I only used a few tablespoons because it's so dense- so it did little to cut the coffee's natural acidity and tang. The coconut milk took a while to fully mix with the coffee, and I still ended up with a few clumps. 

I might not have hated this so much if I didn't have a VERY specific idea of what iced coffee tastes like. Sigh. I drank the whole thing, though. An addict's gotta do what an addict's gotta do...

Any improvisation fails recently?
