The Last Veggies

by Meghann on July 15, 2010

A forgotten favorite returned to the dinner table tonight.

Can you believe it has been over a month since I’ve made nut crusted fries? I know – me either! These were a weekly staple for a minute there.

I followed the usual directions and went with sweet potato as my fry base since it was really the only thing I had left in the kitchen.

Well, besides bok choy. Gotta love that bok choy. ;)

The bok choy was sauteed in some olive oil with red pepper flakes, garlic, and rolled dates. The combination was sweet, spicy, and worked well as a side dish to the fries. :)

Maddie was after my dessert this evening.

Coffee ice cream with a crumbled piece of Amanda’s Patriotic Blondie – you would be after it too, right?

My fridge is officially free of all fresh veggies and I’ve still got one day in my challenges to go. Luckily, there’s a mango hidden in the bottom drawer for breakfast tomorrow and the apple from lunch is still in my desk at work. I may be out of veggies, but I’ll be damned if they take my fresh fruit away from me. :)

Now, I just need to figure out what am I going to do without vegetables for lunch or dinner tomorrow? Hmmm…. I guess this is when creativity really comes into play? Or I guess this is where I actually start digging into my freezer and pantry for food? HA!

We’ll see…. ;)

Fun things to look forward to this weekend (besides grocery shopping) -

  • Derek Visits!
  • A new cell phone! <– hopefully
  • My first Olympic Tri
  • Dog Park!
  • Getting my car back!
  • STAYING HOME!! :)  

Yippeee!!!

Can’t wait!

I have this awful habit of randomly purchasing frozen meals that look great when I’m at Publix – and am obviously shopping on an empty stomach – but when they make it home they proceed to sit in my freezer for months at a time. The same mantra goes through my head every time – more »

What’s for Breakfast Mommy

July 15, 2010

Happy Tempo Thursday! Only my 2 mile cool down turned in to a 1 mile cool down thanks to some stomach issue that had to be taken care of ASAP. ( If you’re a runner, then you know what I’m talking about. ) Besides that, the run was great. Stats: Mile 1: 9:25 Mile 2: more »
