One day I wanna go to a cafe and order a fancy latte to stay and sip and they will put pretty designs in the foam but until then I will just drink bubbly single serve french press made by moi.
Now That's What I Call a Bagel. From a real bagel store. Nothing fancy: sesame with plain tofu cream cheese. I had to miss work Thursday to see a doctor and went in on a Sunday to make the time up. To console myself I wolfed this baby down. The coffee above I brought with me though, cuz God love em but bagel stores make great bagels & shitty coffee; leave the coffee to coffee shops.
Like I said, I had to go to the doctor. They put me on antibiotics for a while and I tried to get the good -bodies back in with this Good Belly stuff. I feel like it helped; it also didn't hurt that it tastes pretty good anyway.
Lotsa blackberries have been in the snack rotation.
And these Key Lime flavor Larabars. Not one of my usual flavors but very good - and it takes me on a tropical trip while I pretend it's not freezing outside.
Also keeping us warm is this quick soup I threw together for G one night. Leftover barley and lentils thrown into a pot with sauteed onion and kale, with vegetable broth.
Another quick lunch salad. I am not good at grocery shopping these days I guess. If I had a plant that produced food that I could pick and eat, that would be cool - not so into going outside and stuff. This is cooked lentils, raw zucchini, and cherry tomatoes. Tossed with grain mustard later.
And finally, something special! This was so delicious. The extra, like, 10 minutes I put into actually heating up a dinner after work was really worth it, whoda thunk? This is broccoli and zucchini stir-fried with garlic, salt, and olive oil and topped with warm barley. While the vegetables cooked, I mixed together tahini, water, nooch, cayenne pepper, and paprika for a smoky, creamy, almost cheesy sauce. So so good. When it's all mixed together it's like a super vegetable mac and cheese dish. I made this two nights in a row- the second night with kale- and now I'm out of tahini but I will definitely continue making this on cold evenings. It's comforting and hearty but totally healthy too.
Alright, I'm through raving. Take care of yaselves.
