Snacks + Salads

February 2, 2009

Kelsey and I fetched coffees to help us get through the afternoon. I had 75% decaf/25% caf. Plus a splash of skim milk and a splash of half and half.

I also ate my leftover lunch fruit! It was SO FUN to eat during class :)  We had an early dinner so I didn’t need a snack, but while I was cooking I had a few bites of this leftover salad from last night to tide me over. All the good stuff is on the bottom!

Pile o’ Peas

I thought up this salad based on cravings and what we had in the fridge. It turned out awesome! Here’s the recipe: Lemon Caper Chickpea Salad.

“Midnight” Snack

Since we ate so early I felt an inkling of hungry around 8:00, so I had a little yogurty snack. I really love TJ’s Euro yogurt but it’s been sold out at my store for months. It’s very tangy but still much thicker than normal plain yogurts that aren’t Greek. Greek still holds a place in my heart, but this is fun for a change (and is half the price per oz).

+ half of this Quaker True Delights Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond Bar. It was good, but the Coconut Banana was better! I wish the raspberry chunks had been bigger, but I loved the chunks of chocolate!

I’m still on the fence about TJ’s European yogurt. I think I need to try it again. :)

I never really paid attention to them before, but I love your countertops!

I’ve never heard of that kind of yogurt, but it sounds like I would love it. I can’t get enough plain yogurt!

I eat the TJ Euro yogurt too. I’m with you greek is great, but Euro is really good and cheap! I normally have some sort of cereal for crunch with it – this week I’m on a Total Raisin cereal kick. I seem to never get tired of my afternoon yogurt treat at work.

i really want to try that yogurt, but I can never buy it since the closest TJ’s is 3+ hours away!

I know what you mean about the weather – its in the 30′s and now we have wind chill advisories for the middle of the week.

Although I was jealous when you had a SHORT SLEEVE shirt on for the giveaway!

I thought I was the only one who spends like, 5 minutes at the condiment bar at coffee shops putting different stuff in my coffee!

Your dinner looks filling and satisfying! I have a can of chick peas that I’ve been meaning to use… maybe this is the recipe!

Kath do you think we can get Barney Butter to offer free shipping again?? I so want to try their almond butter!

Your chickpea salad looks so good! And I agree, the coconut banana is better than the chocolate raspberry, I’ve already devoured both of mine! :)

Hi Kath!
Sorry I haven’t written in a while…was on vacation (abroad) and then super busy at work. Anyway – don’t worry about the pants…mine felt unusually tight today too…weird:)
Also – I made your veggie lasagna recipe last night and it was a HUGE hit with the roommate, my brother and the roommate’s sister! Thank you !
I’m also keeping my eyes open for a KERF contest and the oatmeal bowl…I love bowls:)

I love that yogurt, but TJ’s Greek is still my favorite.

Dinner looked good, but I still think your midnight snack looked the most tasty. Me & my sweet tooth. :)

The salad and the snack both look fantastic! Suddenly I’m craving yogurt!

That salad sounds great. I am not a quinoa fan but I could easily sub bulgur or barley. Yum!!

Your dinner looks so good. I’ve never used capers because I’m intimidated, but this might be a good recipe to introduce myself to them. Thanks for sharing!

I’m liking that salad! I forgot how much I love capers.

Awww Java City! I miss that place- we had one in the library of my college! :)

Tj’s european style yogurt is my favorite! I can’t go a few days without it… so glad they had that temporary recall of the greek because I definitely prefer this kind!
Lovely “salad”!

Guess what!! Lynette is my MOM! And if you look, I actually made the comment that I wanted to win the tote for my mom. Looks like she won it herself!! I’m so happy for her. She loves your blog so much (I got her hooked over the summer!). Her birthday is on the 11th, so she got an early birthday gift!! Thanks for the contest Kath, so my mom could have her day brightened with a KERF tote!!!!!!

P.S. I actually called her late last night forgetting she was probably asleep to see if she was the Lynette that had one and then she called me first thing this morning to let me know it WAS her! We were both acting like we’d won the lottery! We’re such foodies. LOL!
