The highlight of my day yesterday was seeing that someone googled the following phrase that somehow brought them to my blog:
“Telling someone off sarcastically“
Usually people find my blog by asking google if it’s okay to eat cake as a meal but telling people off? Sarcastically? Ha.
With my son home sick and not eating normally, in addition to polishing off his grapes, I took the liberty of eating some of his Chobani 100 vanilla greek yogurt since it was about to expire.
Such a genius move.
I don’t have a picture of my post-run breakfast but it involved my blueberry pie oatmeal served COLD (including the blueberries which were frozen) with a scoop of Chobani 100 vanilla greek yogurt mixed in. I highly recommend this combo anytime, especially post-run, because it’s a filling meal containing a good mix of complex carbohydrates and protein.
I am so glad that last Friday I made the decision to not plan our dinners for this week. As a meatless eater, I am totally able to wing my meals since nothing needs to be defrosted and so much can be prepared on the fly. For my son though, I do need to plan a little bit more ahead if it means defrosting chicken or steak in preparation for his dinner. Since he has not been eating normally, the only foods I have been preparing are toast with jelly and English muffin pizzas, making me glad I didn’t defrost anything that would have gone to waste!
Speaking of toast, I finally contacted Food For Life to tell them about that randomly wrong cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread I bought recently at Trader Joe’s. Remember, the loaf I got was just not the usual texture or flavor and was missing almost all of the raisins?
Although they think there might have been a problem with quality control and are sending me a coupon, I learned something new about buying my favorite Ezekiel bread at Trader Joe’s:
I did go to Trader Joe’s before receiving this email this week and I did get a new loaf which tastes the way it should and certainly wasn’t moldy but this is still something to think about. The email also informed me that the loaf in question was from December which means Trader Joe’s had it somewhere in their stock for a few months before putting it out on shelves.
What I now wonder is that since Trader Joe’s is clearly selling me bread that has been defrosted, is it wrong for me to then take that loaf and keep it in the freezer? I wonder if that will affect the overall flavor and texture. I may email her back to ask. Sometimes I do store my Ezekiel breads in the freezer since we don’t always eat the slices that quickly, otherwise, I store the loaves in the fridge.
Oh and before I forget, I picked up this new dressing for my son because my dad said it’s good – have you tried it?
A few things that I want to prep for the week ahead:
Quinoa & Lentils – I like to cook them together for a good balance of texture and protein!
Spicy Black Bean & Lentil Chili – Love this chili recipe. Will probably add the quinoa/lentil mix.
This chicken recipe for my son. He loves the spices of this recipe and enjoys the chicken served hot with a baked potato or cold in a salad.
Meatless Meatballs – I ran out of my freezer stash.
