Twas the week before Christmas and Kath ate….
Oats in a jar! Long time, no see. This was actually oat bran, which is why it looks so uniform. Mazen likes oat bran more than oatmeal because of its smaller texture, so this is what we eat nowadays! I topped the banana-y mixture with some Cville Cluster granola. Yum yum.
A few days later I reheated up some leftovers with a splash of milk – more of the same!
Most mornings we have eggs with toast and fruit. Mazen loves them all. Like his mother, breakfast is his favorite meal of the day (favorite = most food consumed). Breakfast like a king! Grapefruit rocked the house this morning along with scrambled eggs and toast with butter and jam.
Pancakes are another favorite breakfast. I use the Great Harvest mix, which is whole grain and hearty. Topped with some berries, coconut, butter and syrup.
The next day I had a leftover pancake with some chocolate peanut butter on top. The funky egg was cooked in the microwave (a failed experiment).
Salads were back on the menu while we went through a weather warm front! Boy do I miss summer. In the winter I just don’t want salads for lunch as much.
Greens, sardine salad on the side, grapes, leftover sweet potatoes and saltines.
Another salad – this time topped with leftover trout, leftover green beans, goat cheese, almonds and Tessemae’s dressing
But most days all I want for lunch is soup!
Leftover chili take 1
Leftover chili take 2. Topped with some of my mom’s sherry cheese dip, which melted beautifully. And avocado!
The other half of lunch: a big grapefruit and a few oranges for M. I eat standing up while getting his lunch ready too often these days.
I am not sure why we have FOUR cups going at this lunch. Water, milk, greens smoothie and more water!
And finally – scrambled eggs, a roll, and veggies dipped in sherry cheese! This lunch rocked.
I made a big pot of chili (easy recipe coming soon!). This explains all the lunch mugs!
Butternut + bison. So good! Topped with plain yogurt.
Dinner #2 was pan-cooked local trout (simple with salt and pepper and a little seasoning) along with saffron green beans and polenta that Karen made from scratch and brought us. Her polenta was awesome, so I’m going to have to make it soon myself!
Another night I went out with some blog friends Robyn and Clare and Eva, who was visiting from Wisconsin and got us all together. We had Spice-a-ritas and burrito bowls at Mono Loco. Mine was coconut cod with beans + rice and greens on top. Special sauce for dipping. Thumbs up!
That’s all I got for dinners due to being behind and leaving my camera in its crock one too many nights.
Happy Christmas to all!
