Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

In the Kitchen—Menu

Wow, it's been a while since I posted a menu, unless you count Thanksgiving.

What I'm doing right now food-wise is that the majority of my meals I eat really healthy and monitor my food to make sure I'm getting the right proportion of protein to veggies to grains. Then for two meals a week I can eat whatever I want.*

So here's what I'm eating this week:

Oatmeal with spices and maybe a little honey
Eggs scrambled with spinach and garlic, topped with salsa

Curried carrot soup with pistachios (recipe in Vegetarian Times October 2012)

Black bean enchiladas with avocado
Basil Coconut Curry

Smoothies made of frozen berries, unsweetened soy yogurt, whey**, spinach, bananas, and flax seed

Daily treats
Red wine
Dark chocolate

Treat meals for the week
Brunch: Fried eggs, bacon, French toast made with apple cinnamon sourdough. Had this yesterday with the gentleman. And it was more like a late lunch than brunch—I'd already eaten breakfast, been to work, and come back by the time we had it. But it was delicious; I haven't cooked myself bacon in literally decades; it was a rare luxury.
Dinner: Enchiladas Verdes (involves spinach in a creamy cheesy sauce). Pumpkin bars.

*Except that the dairy still has to be organic and the meat has to be free range, etc.
**Pairing soy yogurt with whey sounds weird, but I have my nutritional reasons. Ask in comments if you're curious.
