Good food always helps.
Once again, thanks to your sweet comments I know I’m not alone in my sorrows. Thanks guys!
Today has been a much better day. I started the morning off with oat bran mixed with almond butter, pears, cinnamon, and peanut butter. This was my first time experimenting with pears but they cooked up nicely. I just stuck everything in the microwave together with the pears at the bottom of the bowl. There was also some coffee with soy milk.
Before lunch with Sarah, I did a little bit of homework and a lot of blog reading. Sarah picked me up around 2:15 for a late lunch at Zaftigs. This place is famous for their all day breakfast but we figured going at an off time would help with the wait. I was starving by the time I got there so I dug right into to the bagel chips and dill sauce they provided. They tasted great. Every time I go to Zaftigs I get the same exact thing, Israeli Couscous Salad and it never disappoints. The ingredients include: grilled chicken, mixed field greens, sun-dried cranberries, fennel, radicchio, walnuts, orange-mint vinaigrette. I substituted the chicken with a portabella mushroom.
Look at that masterpiece!! I cannot even begin to explain the flavors. I think we should have a Boston Bloggers Meet-up there. Any takers?
I made myself leave leftovers for tomorrows lunch. I can’t wait for work tomorrow. I guess that’s the trick to a better Monday.
After lunch, I went to Whole Foods for some retail therapy. Sundays aren’t the best days for therapy apparently because it was freaking packed and I have no patience. I escaped without dropping too much money. I did not escape however, without chocolate. Something about expensive chocolate makes you really want to savor it. I must admit, I think Cadbury Caramel Eggs are just as good. A junkie is a junkie, I guess.
What to do for dinner? I went back and forth between a few things until I saw Tina’s post for Polenta Breakfast Pizza. I knew I must have it. I altered her recipe since I’m not a sausage eater and Len hates onions. My polenta Quiche (is more like it) ingredients include broccoli, roasted potatoes, olives, and one jalapeno. I also cut out two of the four eggs and replaced them with three whites. I had never made polenta before which is crazy since it’s so easy. I doubled the batch so you’ll be seeing a lot more of it. I wonder if it has any nutrients.
Len ate two slices of it but I don’t think he was totally psyched. It was bland and could have used more cheese or spice. You better believe I doused that sucker with ketchup and hot sauce.
Mmmm, I think I want to make this with polenta, BBQ sauce, pineapples and some veggies. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am I the only one who didn’t watch the hockey game? The one minute I watched was when the US tied the game. At least I got that going for me.
Thanks to everyone who has entered my giveaway. I can’t believe we have to wait till Friday to find out who wins. Keep the entires coming.
Tomorrow is MARCH!!!! What??????
