I don’t have an introduction for today.
I know, I know. I’m a bad blogger because I’m sure that’s why you come here day in and day out. It’s to hear me ramble on and realize there is someone else who is equally as crazy as you, although keep in mind, if they are handing out prizes, I win. Crazy plus highly competitive equals a ball of laughs and a barrel of monkeys. That’s some funny math right there, and I may need to adjust my resume or rethink my current job crunching numbers.
Oh crap. It’s What I Ate Wednesday, which means you aren’t here for my witty banter at all.
You want to see my eats.
Every single morsel consumed in a single day.
While I may not have an introduction, I do have food, and at this rodeo that probably earns me way more points, which means I’m still in the lead.
My breakfast comes by way of Farm Fresh Feasts and my CSA. It’s true my CSA ended back in December, but not before I was given a bag of red skinned potatoes, some shallots and a cabbage. Yes, I eat six-week old cabbage; don’t judge me, or at least not until you taste this because it makes six-week old cabbage taste amazing. For real, and I don’t even like cabbage. I’d eat this again though.
I give you the Breakfast Salad, comprised of sautéed cabbage and shallots, roasted red skinned potatoes and scrambled eggs. For the sake of specifics, the below dish is a serving platter and contains about four cups of cabbage, four eggs and at least six baby taters. Between the Hubby and I, we managed to put down two-thirds of the this, although we did forage through to find and finish off the eggs.
Not only did I eat my veggies for breakfast, “Thank you, Thank you,” she says while curtseying, but this meal is actually a strong contender for Laura’s Strange But Good. I am just winning all over the place; good thing too because you should see the fit I throw when I’m not. I’m only kidding; I’m not a temper tantrum type gal, aside from a few murky meltdowns, but I can and will curse a blue streak.
After ingesting 800 tons of cabbage with a side of protein, I thought I’d never be hungry again, so I opted to forgo a proper lunch. Instead I went the smoothie route with frozen strawberries, spinach, a banana, and a handful of blueberries. When it was all said and done, my cup runneth over or truly about twenty ounces.
After drinking my lunch, I went errand running, which included stops at Nature’s Bin and the Breadsmith. While at the latter, I took not one, but two samples of their Orange Chocolate Chip Dessert Bread. It was at this point, I realized I was ravenous, and I almost upended that entire sample platter into my mouth. I still kind of wish I had.
Alas, it was not meant to be, so I scurried home and quickly inhaled a Clementine with a side of Cabot’s Vermont Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese, which I get by the brick from Costco. Mmmm, bricks of cheese make me happy. There was at least another two slices consumed post photo.
Seeing as how I was suddenly starving (damn you smoothie for lunch), I jumped on the dinner train faster than a traveling hobo fleeing from the 5-0.
Dinner was two slices of Mediterranean Herb bread, cut into pieces and dunked into extra virgin olive oil with a mixture of seasonings. There’s four slices of bread in the picture below, two of which were shared with the Hubby. Damn, I am a good woman; still on top too.
We paired our bread with a serving of sautéed veggies on a bed of quinoa. In play we have onions, garlic, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and grape tomatoes all cooked in olive oil and topped with my own Garlic Rosemary Salt. It was veggierific. Yes, I’m making up words now; just go with it.
This is a regular sized salad or cereal bowl.
Last came dessert, which was consumer fireside: a glass of white wine and buckeye bar purchased at Nature’s Bin earlier in the day. Hence, why you shouldn’t grocery shop hungry or perhaps the real reason you should. 😉
It was perfect and a delightful ending to a delectable day.
If you could pick any meal from my above day of eats, which would it be and why?
