So it would seem that summer + regular food blogging are just not a combo that jive smoothly with me. I don’t do regular, thought out meals when the heat is on and I have no sense of a current schedule to keep me in line.
And you know what’s annoying? All of the coolest foods I’ve eaten lately have no evidence to back them!
For example – Yesterday I went to the beach! Which was awesome. The wind was a kickin’ and the waves were a rollin’. I almost lost my bathing suit at least a dozen times diving into the huge crashers. The only thing that would have made it MORE awesome was if we were going over the waves with a SEADOO. I wish! In the middle of the madness I had delicious beach eats like a hummus vegetable pita and a strawberry peach frozen yogurt. They looked kind of like these (NOT my pictures):
But I just didn’t snap any pictures of them!
I also had a delicious dinner at The Keg Steakhouse the other night. I got the Grilled Thai Chicken – boneless chicken with sautéed onions, bell peppers and snap peas in a sweet hot Thai chili sauce – with a side of vegetables which was basically a pile of the most delicious sautéed mushrooms I’ve ever eaten. Washed all down with a Rainbow Sherbet. But, yet again, no pictures.
I miss all of the COOL foods, but I have no problem getting pictures of some of the much less exciting and much more repetitive foods I eat at home. What fun is that?! I think I need to start snapping pictures of all my foods, even the things I eat out. Even if I feel like a dumb dumb doing so. They’re just way more interesting.
Also, my cousin was visiting this week so things have been a little all over the place, making it hard to even think about pulling out the camera half the time.
I captured several mornings though. They’ve been looking a little something like this:
(I’ve been considering bumping down the coffee habit a bit. It hasn’t happened quite yet)
Weetabix, pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla yogurt, blueberries, frozen banana
Oatbran, blueberries, banana, wheat berries, almond butter
Pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla yogurt, flax, Fiber One, Guardian Cereal
Leftover Keg dinner chicken with hummus, spinach and honey mustard in a wrap; side of leftover squash ( yes, this was a breakfast ;) )
And of course, plenty of the fresh fruit that is in ABUNDANCE right now. Mmm. Watermelon.
Throughout the days I’ve been trying to cram in lots of veggies (mainly in the form of salads), and have also been snacking on leftovers, crackers, and other equally unappealing and quickly inhaled foods that never make it onto my camera.
My cousin has now packed up and headed off on other adventures though, and I’m kind of getting bored of the constant snacking thing, especially considering I’m always snacking on the same foods. So expect to see some actual meals around these parts in the near future? Actually, try not to expect that so you can be awed and amazed when I actually come up with something exciting to shake up my culinary palate.
