And another day of food…
It’s cold out there! but, at the same time, I’m starting to tire of the steady diet of heavy, warming dishes, and want a little something – brighter. So it’s time to play with winter salads, again… I’ve been trying carrot slaw, for a change. And otherwise, the theme for the day was Fast and Easy (and sort of mindless…)
Breakfast, first. A protein shake, and muffins. The shake, this time, was simple – milk and yogurt, a little orange juice, and protein powder… Sometime I add more fruit, but this is the basic. And I’m finally writing up my muffin mix for you all – it makes them so much easier!
Lunch was tomato soup – we ate a lot of tomato soup last week, and probably will continue to, we liked it – with cheesy eggs, served over tortillas. If you think you’ve seen this before, without the soup, for breakfast, you’re right… it is a good really fast and mindless meal. And we all need some of them! (This was the test to see if the soup reheats well. It does…)
Dinner was… well, I was a bit vague that evening (I really wish this weather would settle!) I believe this was leftovers with lentils and peas added to stretch it, served over rice. And I’m not sure why the carrot salad came out neon in every picture… doesn’t it look scary? It really wasn’t that bright… but I wasn’t tinkering with pictures, by then, I just grabbed a snapshot.
Jenn is still taking a break from the WIAW party – but there are plans (she posts) for a blog hop, to make it easier on her. We’ll be able to share again, but the workload of moderation will be spread out. Good for her, I say – setting boundaries! Meanwhile, I eat my neon carrots…
