Do you know what today is? WhaT I Ate WedNesdAy! My iPhone food photos aren’t going to be picked up by foodgawker any time soon, but hey, a party is a party. So, hop on over to Peas & Crayons and join in!
This was a pleasant surprise…
Discovering that my favorite breakfast cafe, First Watch, has a meatless version of eggs benedict.
Mmmm… spinach, avocado, and tomato. Delicious!
Question of the week:
Why do I eat so much at one sitting? Why? Why? Why is it a requirement that after a meal, I feel like I ate the actual table in addition to my meal?
Today for lunch, I went to a lovely French bistro, and they had very little meatless options. I really didn’t want a salad, but in retrospect, that’s what I should have ordered. Instead, I had a grilled cheese with tomato. Gruyere. MMMMM. I am weak around cheese. Should stay away.
See this sandwich?
I wish you could see my plate when I was done. Pretty much empty. Embarassingly so. I can’t imagine how many calories were in that. Approximately eleventy hundred, I think.
My favorite breakfast this week…
My favorite breakfast this week was overnight oats. I tried them for the first time and, wow, I’m hooked already. No cooking. All the goodness of oats, yogurt, almond milk, chia seeds, and more! Creamy and cold and delicious. Unfortunately for overnight oats, they are, like me, extremely unphotogenic. Therefore, I will tell a white lie and say that this was my favorite breakfast this week.
Scrambled egg with avocado and a side of salsa (most people would have put the salsa on top of the eggs, but I have food
mental issues. Some day I will tell you about them. The salsa has to go next to the food. That’s all there is to it). And a sliced Fuji apple that was perfectly juicy and a wonderful complement to the eggs. Oh, and a side of
The eggs were a nice break from my usual breakfast, Grape Nuts with vanilla almond milk.
Dinner tonight was chili lime tilapia and sweet potato fries.
And guess who liked it?
Oh yes, that’s right. My little guy not only had seconds, but he had THIRDS. I can’t figure him out at all. I was telling him recently that he needs to believe he will like something when he tries it, or it’s almost guaranteed that he won’t. I don’t know if that piece of
baloney wisdom actually made a difference or what, but he’s been much more adventurous lately, and has really found a lot of things he likes. And most of it is fish, which works really well for me!
When I was putting J to bed tonight, he said, “I wish I could have more of that fish right now.” And I explained to him
for the hundredth time that it was all gone! We each had a filet to ourselves. (It’s the first time in J’s life that Daddy has not gotten to eat what J leaves behind, poor Daddy!”) Anyway, I told J that I was glad he liked fish and I’d love to make him fish again soon, and you know what he said?
Is there any fish that you can cook with cinammon?
