Welp, here we are in the middle of the week- my last week of freedom before I return for my second year of graduate school. I am excited to get back to learning, but will miss the slower days of summer.
Today I present to you three at home meals that I may miss a little as life gets more hectic. I am still trying to convince Terry to tune up his cooking skills if he wants dinner before 8 pm. 😉
Breakfast: two fried eggs, rice cakes, blob of peanut butter, and black coffee. Finished off by a piece of dark chocolate, obviously.
On this morning, I was heading to my internship at a long term care facility, so I made a quick breakfast to enjoy. I love fried eggs with runny yolks, but I’ve found I don’t really enjoy them unless I have something to absorb the yolk with, like bread or some other kind of carb. In this case, rice cakes.
Snack: pumpkin granola bar
Lunch: leftover ground turkey (from our zucchini lasagna), side salad (spinach, tomatoes, feta, bell pepper, and dijon mustard) and blue corn tortilla chips
This is one of those times when staring into the fridge hoping for inspiration turned out delicious. I love have something warm and soupy-like to go along with a salad. It’s like dressing isn’t even necessary.
Snack: frozen grapes, homemade frappe, and un-pictured crackers
Dinner: baked salmon with dill, baked potato with a bit of butter, and zucchini with tomatoes.
This dinner was a “okay, I feel pretty fancy” dinner. I tried very hard this time to not over cook the salmon like I usually do. Alas, I think I missed the mark by less than a minute. Terry still liked it though!
Snack: plain kefir, blueberries, and half a warm pumpkin granola bar
I love the way a warm baked good taste on a cold yogurt/kefir. This was enjoyed while watching House, MD. At the moment, we are nearing the end of season 7. I’ve enjoyed it- but I am starting to feel a little weighed down by all the heaviness… I’m thinking a sitcom is in order for our next Netflix pick.
There ya have it- a full day of eats. Now, you tell me-
What’s your favorite food to pair with runny yolks?
Do you have light-hearted recommendation for our next Netflix pick?
