Hello, friends. I have random eats for you today. I’ll start with last night’s dinner. I’ve kinda been on grocery strike all week (aka, I just didn’t feel like going shopping). All I had in the fresh produce department were 3 zucchinis from the farmer’s market that needed to be used up. I sent out a plea via Twitter for ideas, and my blog friend Jill gave me the great idea of making zucchini noodles. All you do is scrape the zucchini with a potato peeler to get long “noodles.” Once you hit the seeds, you stop. Now I need an idea of what to do with the zucchini inards! Paired with some ground turkey, onions, jarred spaghetti sauce, and freshly grated parmesan cheese (secret ingredient!), this was a pretty darn decent meal!
So breakfast this morning was equally as creative since we had no bread, no milk, or fresh fruit. I came up with oatmeal (made with water and leftover evaporated milk from Wayne’s bday cake!) topped with banana soft serve and PB. Wowwww, this was really good! The temperature contrast reminded me of that ice cream topped brownie dessert you see in restaurants everywhere. I will definitely be eating this again.
This little man joined me while I ate breakfast in my PJs…
Lunch was the most pathetic of all… canned soup! I didn’t photograph it for obvious reasons. Blech. I finally got my butt to the store after lunch. I didn’t have a list or any meals planned… just wandered and picked stuff that looked good. I never do this, so it was a little anxiety-producing and I kind of feel like I got $100 worth of what?? Anyway, I decided on simple wraps for dinner. I would say at least 50% of what I bought was produce, so I will be eating stuff like this for awhile.
On the side are blueberries and snap peas. The wrap, from bottom to top has:
- Sabra Classic Hummus
- Yellow tomato slices
- Cucumber slices
- BBQ sauce
- my first ever Sriracha <—-Holy tongue-burning
- Red bell peppers
That’s all for today, everyone! I’m off to watch SYTYCD and nurse the pounding, splitting headache I’ve had all day. So far, I’ve tried: taking my contacts out, drinking a jug of water, taking a nap, laying down, and now I’m drinking a Diet Coke for a little caffiene (I didn’t have my coffee this morning). Nothing is working. I know I should just take some Advil… but eh. What do you do to remedy a headache?
