Guess what? I’m finally participating in What I Ate Wednesday again!
7 AM Breakfast – Smoothie consumed during the drive to work.
10 AM Snack – After a long meeting and cable run, I was hungry for a snack and dived into the jug of Red Vines in cube area.
Not usual for me and I’m not proud of it, but they’re vegan! :-) Typically I stash an apple in my purse for an emergency snack, forgot today. D’oh!
11:45AM Lunch – I made up for my junky snack by heading to Whole Foods for lunch to raid the salad bar.
And enjoy a little fresh air sitting outside before the winter weather kicks in.
Came home and played with this little guy for a bit.
Who’s already ripping green fuzz out of his new toy.
5:45 PM Dinner – I desperately need to grocery shop, I have not stocked up in nearly two weeks thanks to playing last weekend in San Francisco. But I did have a package of PastaSlim noodles and Trader Joe’s frozen edamame to work with.
The instructions on the noodles simply say to rinse them and heat them up before serving. But that doesn’t work for me since they don’t have the best flavor and texture. However, they can be very good when stir fried in a wok with sauce, it does wonderful things for the flavor and texture of the noodles. Tonight I stir fried them with the edamame, carrots, minced garlic, minced ginger, and soy sauce for a simple and fast dinner.
I added toasted sesame seeds for more texture and flavor and it turned out to be a great dinner even though I wasn’t following a recipe and just throwing ingredients into a wok.
6:30 PM Dessert – Apple slices with a little pumpkin butter for dipping.
It wasn’t my best food day thanks to a long, stressful day at work. But it wasn’t bad either and hopefully tomorrow I’ll remember my apple. :-)
