Quiet Food

by Meghann on April 27, 2010

That was a very, very long day.

It feels so good to finally get to stretch out on the couch and have a chance to catch up on life. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love how busy days go fast, but I don’t love how they drain me of all my energy.

My snack this morning consisted of some goldfish pretzels and chocolate graham gold fish.


Unfortunately my lunch had to be consumed while on a conference call in the board room.


I arrived to the meeting early so I could snap photos. Not sure why I didn’t just take them at my desk? I’m such a nerd. ๐Ÿ˜›


Lunch included:

Raw Broccoli


Dried Mango & Apricots


And the main event


Tempeh + Swiss Cheese + Jam Sandwich


This was a great quiet meal to eat while on the conference call.

Good news – we moved the website launch to NEXT Thursday! Woo hoo! Such a load off of my plate…. for now. ๐Ÿ™‚

3+ hours of meetings later it was snack time.


Plain Chobani & Jam is A-MA-ZING! Why is this the first time I’ve tried this combo?!?!


Plus muesli from the bulk bins at Whole Foods.


I got caught at work late and was scrambling to pack half of my closet as soon as I walked in the door. I have no clue what to pack for San Fran. Someone suggested layers, but I’m a Florida girl who apparently doesn’t get the concept of layers. ๐Ÿ™ I’m pretty sure I packed enough clothes to last 2 weeks for a 5 day vacation, but at least I’ll be prepared!

I had quite a few random left overs in my fridge that needed to be formed into something wonderful for dinner.


Someone had asked in the comment section yesterday what I do with the other half a can of black beans when I use the other half in a recipe. Well, that’s easy – I simply save the black beans in tupperware and make something fabulous of it the next day. ๐Ÿ™‚


Mushroom & Onion Black Bean Burger (makes 2)

  • 1/2 can Black Beans
  • 1/4 small Onion
  • 3 chopped Mushrooms
  • 1 Tbs Flax Seed
  • Chili Powder
  • Oregano
  • S&P
  • 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs

Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until almost smooth. Form two patties and heat on the griddle.


I served my Black Bean Burger over all the veggies left in my fridge (broccoli, radishes, broccoli, mushrooms, spinach) with a drizzle of bbq sauce on top.


I’m in charge of dessert for a housewarming party tomorrow and had just enough time to quickly whip up a batch of Mama Pea’s Peanut Butter Blondies.


Unfortunately, I underbaked them and they fell apart as i was trying to cut them. Baking fail. ๐Ÿ™

Underbaked or not the one I had for dessert was quite tasty.


I wonder if there is a way to serve the crumbles over ice cream and just say it’s supposed to be like that?!? ๐Ÿ™‚

Glee is on!!!

Good Night!
