I see seas of green June 17, 2009

…and red fruits too…

This whole coming up with a post title business can be hard work!

My breakfast this morning was not green.  More purple/brown, but very tasty.  The monster included kale, chia seeds, pineapple, and blueberries.


For lunch I brought a sea of green salad, romaine, asparagus, green pepper, snap peas and lime juice/olive oil dressing.  And the waves were crested with light feta cheese.  (At least I’m trying to be entertaining!)


And snacking, red fruits!  Lychee, cherries, and not-so-red but oh-so-delicious apricots.


When I got home I was starving so I had a few peanuts and a handful of blueberries to tide me over through the cooking process.

For dinner I pulled a piece of lemon and herb flavoured sole out of the freezer and heated it up in the steamer along with cauliflower, and nuked some frozen peas.  I kept the fish in the vacuum wrapped package in the steamer and the fish was perfectly cooked even though I left it going for ~10 minutes longer than I intended!  I like this fool-proof cooking method.  My cauliflower was a bit soft, but it tasted fine when I tossed it and the peas with the extra marinating liquid from the fish (that sounds better than fish juice, right?).


Then dessert, Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich, yum.


Now how about some sun tomorrow, and no rain!

    I always have a tough time with post titles, especially if there’s a lot going on in one single post.

    I like the feta “wave crests” haha. Cute.

    I need to try these Skinny Cow sandwiches, I’ve been wanting to for AGES.
