What I Ate Wednesday Lastly

I’ve acquired a number of electronic mail inquiries asking if I may share a day of my meals with you… and I’m lastly getting round to doing simply that! After all, I made a decision to partake within the What I Ate Wednesday pattern after I packed up my digital camera, pictures set-up, and most of our dishes; so we’ll have to simply go together with good ol’ iPhone pics. Cool?

I kicked the time without work with a bowl (the final one not packed) of Barbara’s Authentic Puffins, my mother’s do-it-yourself granola (one of the best!) and a sliced banana (which I simply bought again into consuming after a couple of month-long hiatus).

I’m sometimes not an enormous chilly cereal fan with regards to breakfast, (I choose consuming it as a snack or dessert), however have been loving it these days! It doesn’t maintain me full for so long as oatmeal, however so long as I’ve a mid-morning snack (normally some sort of fruit), I’m good to go till lunch.

At this time’s snack was a pair handfuls of natural cherries (no shock there). Perfection.

Lunch was packed at this time, and consisted of a melange of meals (we’re making an attempt to empty the fridge and pantry earlier than the large transfer).

Crimson grapes & grape tomatoes (each natural – packed collectively, however eaten individually) + monterey jack cheese & Again to Nature Traditional Spherical Crackers (suppose all-natural Ritz crackers… not the healthiest selection maybe, however they style so good with cheese and grapes), and Stonyfield Natural Lemon 0% Yogurt + natural strawberries. My go-to yogurt is obvious Greek yogurt, however I had a couple of coupons free of charge Stonyfield yogurt cups, and lemon simply sounded so gentle and refreshing… and it tasted fabulous with the candy chopped strawberries.

I additionally refilled this man a bunch of instances whereas I used to be out and about:

In any given week, John and I solely exit for dinner as soon as; however as a result of all of our pots, pans, and cooking utensils are packed, we have now been grabbing takeout all through this week.

Yesterday afternoon I ended by Entire Meals on my method house, totally aspiring to get a to-go container of my favourite Corn & Poblano Chowder, however solely the dregs of the soup had been left within the pot (I’m assuming it’s because I went smack in between lunch & meal time). I settled for the Indian meals sizzling bar, which I’ve had from Entire Meals earlier than and preferred.

Clockwise, from high left: Saag Paneer, Vegetable Biryani, Chana Masala, Hen Tikka Masala, and Lemon Rice.

A couple of notes.

  1. The cubes within the saag ended up being tofu, not cheese – main disappointment! I don’t dislike tofu, however while you’re anticipating paneer, it’s an enormous letdown.
  2. My excessive hopes for the vegetable biryani had been, sadly, dashed. There was an unfamiliar spice in there that I simply didn’t like.
  3. It’s not all dangerous information. The chana masala was wonderful! Higher than I’ve had in Indian eating places. The chickpeas had been the proper texture of doneness, and the spice degree was spot-on.
  4. Each the rooster tikka masala and the lemon rice had been fairly good… however nothing to put in writing house about.
  5. The one factor lacking from this meal – properly, apart from the paneer cheese – was a heat piece of fluffy of naan bread. C’mon Entire Meals, a woman’s gotta have her carbs!

Ethical of the story? The chana masala at Entire Meals is scrumptious… the opposite Indian dishes will not be value it.

A few hours after dinner, I polished off the previous couple of spoonfuls left in a container of Haagen-Dazs Strawberry Ice Cream (no, I did NOT eat your complete pint!).

So there ya have it… a day of eats within the lifetime of me. I’d like to do one other put up of WIAW on a extra typical day – when we have now a totally stocked kitchen so I can eat extra veggies and a home-cooked dinner =).

*The subsequent time I put up, we’ll be in our new home! Yaaaay!!*
