Lunch. Elote style corn on the cob. I ‘grilled’ it in my cast iron grill pan, used greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, sprinkled it with garlic powder, salt, pepper and smoked paprika. And I sauteed some sweet potato and beets in coconut oil with salt and cinnamon on the side.
Food for today. Breakfast: cinnamon rice cake, peanut butter, coffee. Lunch/brunch: Veggie egg white scramble, potatoes, coffee, bloody mary. Dinner: roast cauliflower, a bit of whole wheat pasta.
Yesterday’s food. Breakfast: Cinnamon rice cake, peanut butter, banana. Lunch: Oven roasted celeriac and rutabaga over a bit of whole wheat pasta. Dinner: Shared an order of nachos with the hubby. I ate about 1/4 of that. It got soggy pretty quickly.
Lunch. Tried a new place that had wood fired chicken. I got the lunch special, 1/2 a chicken (dark meat) and two sides. I got butternut squash and macaroni and cheese for the 2y/o. With iced tea.
Dinner. Husband returned late from out of town and brought Italian takeout from the place down the road. It’s just ok. I had a big helping of salad, small helping of penne with creamy pesto and broccoli, and one bite of the stuffed chicken because it wasn’t that good. Also had a bread knot.
Lunch: La Madeleine French onion soup and wild field salad. Mango iced tea.
Dinner: I roasted some broccoli in the oven with olive oil, garlic salt and sesame seeds. I put it on top of a bit of whole wheat pasta, then squeezed half a lemon on top. With water and a Ska Brewing Co Euphoria Pale Ale (that I nearly finished while I was cooking).
Dinner. Tacos de Brisket on corn tortillas (ate 3), avocado, margarita with sangria, chips and avocado salsa. Yes.
It has been a stressful week. Lots of running around like crazy, dentist drama, etc. So today, 4y/o was in school and 2y/o was in childcare so I could go to my dentist appointment. After I was done (no cavities, yay!) I took advantage of my child-free time to sit down and have a relaxing lunch, all by myself. I went to a Thai place that I like and had half of a big bowl of tom kha coconut soup with chicken, a fresh spring roll with tofu, and jasmine tea. I sat at the bar and ate, chatted with the bartender, and it was lovely. Then I went and got my kids and resumed normal life.
