I feel like such a bad blogger-internet-friend. If I haven’t been commenting consistently on your posts it’s because the WIFI at my place is doing that thing again. (Where it doesn’t work properly. It’s painfully slow.) Remember when that happened to me a few months ago? I don’t know what it is about the internet and cell service where I live, but it’s awful. The good news is, they’re supposed to be working on a permanent solution, so I should be back to cyber bullying you again soon.
Lets talk food. (Thanks to Jen for hosting WIAW!!) I keep meaning to do a full days worth of eats, but that’s probably never going to happen. Instead, I’m going to share some favourites from the past week or so.
I tend to eat variations of the same meals over and over again. Read: SNACK PLATES. I’ve realized snack plates are my favourite thing in the world. And probably the #1 advantage of being single. There’s no one around to give me the side eye when I’m eating one for dinner for the 40th consecutive night in a row.
Last week, I had tortilla chips and salsa for dinner, then Cinnamon Toast Crunch for dessert. Oh sure, why not? When I told Glenn about my less-than-nutritious meal he said, “Hey so did I! Except I had pumpkin pie for dessert!” :) Apparently I’m on an all-carb diet now.
This was a snack-plate picnic enjoyed on my living room floor on a rainy day. Chickpea salad, roasted sweet potato, tortilla chips + guacamole, olives, tomatoes, artichokes, goat cheese.
… followed by 12 donuts for dessert. Remember these guys?! I sure miss ‘em.
My recent Nourish feast:
The Beautiful Burrito (that you MUST order if you ever find yourself in Banff. I mean it! Don’t $&!* around and order anything else.)
Portebello Stacks which were insanely good. And weird. Get this: honey pancakes topped with melted cheese, mushrooms, onion rings, kale, lettuce and a pickled veggie spear. Have you ever tried pickled zucchini and tomatoes?
Curry Poutine. Oh my. So, so good.
Homemade pizzas! I think my friend was getting annoyed of me sending 40,000 pizza emojis everyday and took it upon themselves to plan a pizza night.
Plus a side of my favourite staple foods: sweet potato crackers, hummus, olive oil, zaatar and wine.
Green smoothies. Kale-abunga from Jugo Juice, with coconut water instead of juice. I will never understand why smoothie companies use juice in smoothies. Stop. Please. How many times can I say juice in this paragraph?
BIG lunctime salads. (With leftover pizza)
Cake. Post-pizza dessert. Oh man, I love cake so much. It’s the main reason why my butt is so voluptuous. Hahaha.
I’m off to work now. Have a lovely day, and if we don’t chat before the weekend, HAVE A HAPPY LABOUR DAY! Wooooooo!!! (I’m excited)
