GUAC and SHAKE

Simple Guacamole:

ingredients

chop everything up finely (I strain my tomatoes – that’s the leftover liquid in the back)

core these babies

mix it all up with salt and pepper (and lemon juice) to taste!

Very Berry Pineapple Fro-Yo Shake

main ingredients

the strawberries were a last minute decision. why not go all out?

dump everything in the mixer (except for the frozen yogurt – i don’t like mine too smooth)

all ready!

PS. I’ve decided to do weekly food experiment posts instead of publishing an entry every time I make something.


Tenacity

A friend and I were conversing over our eating habits lately and we both noticed how shoddily we nourish ourselves during this time of year. She’s been dining on a combination of sugar pastries and espresso drinks whereas I…

Where do I begin? My appetite has lessened considerably since my teens and I find myself more or less confused as what I want to eat. I think a huge part of this is due to my budget. Good food that’s easily prepared just doesn’t come cheap – no matter what the frugal gurus out there proclaim. Also, I simply don’t have the time to scoot for bargains… anyway, here’s what I’ve eat in the past week:

MONDAY it all began so well~

Breakfast: scrambled eggs (3), bacon (2 strips), toast (with whipped butter and jam), coffee (3-4 cups with cream and sugar) Lunch: Chicken caesar salad (300g with bacon bits and ranch dressing) Dinner: steamed broccoli (2 cups), orange juice (1 glass)

TUESDAY damn those chicken strips, they were on sale at the store so I bought a bunch and now I can’t stop eating them because they’re so easy to prepare! but gahhh-MUST STOP!

Breafast: Coffee (3 cups) Lunch: Chicken Caesar Salad (with bacon bits and ranch dressing) Dinner: Chicken tenders (4 small strips)

WEDNESDAY

Breakfast: Coffee (2 cups with cream and sugar) Lunch: BK Whopper, orange juice, Dinner: Chicken tenders, octopus stir fry with cabbage

THURSDAY

Breakfast: NOTHING Lunch: Korean Pork Bone Soup w/ rice and salad, lemon tea Dinner: NOTHING

FRIDAY

Breakfast: soft boiled eggs (2), ham Lunch: Chicken strips, broccoli, rice, orange juice Dinner: NOTHING

SATURDAY

Breakfast: Coffee (2 cups), chocolate cookie Lunch: naan, chilli chicken Dinner: naan, chili chicken, radish soup

SUNDAY

Breakfast: orange juice Lunch: naan, lamb curry, orange juice Dinner: NOT THERE YET!


placate

I’ve been indulging in breakfast lately. Proper breakfasts with eggs, bacon, toast and the endless coffee. I’d thought that filling my stomach so much earlier in the day would mean that I’d refrain from snacking until the afternoon. That isn’t the case, however. My appetite is as alive as ever whether or not I eat a morning meal.

I have been feeling a little overwhelmed lately. So many things on my plate and not enough time to even REMEMBER them all. I nearly missed an important correspondence the other day (thankfully, crisis was averted) and UGH this time of year is always stressful.

The weather’s returned to a respectable spring temperature of 10 or so degrees and I so wish to lie down on the grass and breath. There are so many books I want to read. So many things I want to enjoy but for some off (and usually frugal reason) won’t allow myself.
