Are you all ready for What I Ate Wednesdays?
Oh yeah. I’m back in the game.
Mismatched cushion socks and all..
I ran an exhausting 5 miles today. I maintained the same pace as I normally did and by the time I got home, I was nauseous as ever. If my body was still jet lagged (which it’s not because I’m a super hero), it thought that it was around midnight Sydney time. It was probably wondering, “What are you doing exercising at midnight? Don’t you know you should be sleeping in your wonderfully firm hotel bed with the lush blankets and pillows/still drinking wine at the hotel bar?”
Vacation will never be over.
A nectarine that Farmer’s Market-Kevin knew that I would like.
A mustard filled turkey sandwich… and I do mean mustard filled…
It was good, but eaten in my car underneath the generous Las Vegas heat, it gave me heartburn.
Yeah, that’s fake meat. I’m not a vegetarian but I’m sure you can guess how they got me…
I can’t resist those little stickers!!! It wasn’t that bad though. I’ve grown up around fake meat for a lot of my life and actually like it. I also know that it’s an easy go-to-protein that typically doesn’t require cooking (just reheating).
So the meat was good, my cucumber yogurt dip was not.
While at the farmer’s market yesterday, I asked FM-Kevin, “What’s that?”
“What’s it taste like?”
“A regular cucumber. It just looks like a lemon.”
I knew I wasn’t going to be in the mood for cucumber in the next few days, so making a cucumber yogurt dip was my only shot of getting rid of it before it went bad. So I threw together some greek yogurt, threw in some dill and cut up the cucumber. Even the inside looked just like a regular cucumber.
Lastly, I made a tray of roasted eggplant and tomatoes. My sister’s coming to watch Jax tomorrow and I always like having food around for her. It was pretty yummy, but I overcooked it. The eggplant’s peel took on a crunchier-than-should-be texture.
I was also really amused at how raw eggplant feels like foam. Cutting it up, it reminded me of large foam pits that I had always dreamed of diving into, especially after watching marathons upon marathons of Nitro Circus on MTV.
I think I have an almond butter problem.
I ate this all while wearing…
So… what did you eat on Wednesday?
