WIAW: Hashtag Apostrophe

Whoa eaters!

I almost forgot that I promised you a WIAW post. And since I hate to break a promise…


Pre-Crossfit: apple and pb.

WOD: front squats

3-10-3-20-3-30 rep scheme. I got my 3-rep weight up to 98lbs, which pissed me off because a 100lbs front squat has been a goal of mine for months and I would have had it had I remembered that our bars are 33lbs, not 30lbs, meaning that I only had to go up 2lbs instead of 5lbs.

Weirdo breakfast:

Bacon with a side of my version of cold German potato salad.

Errands:

Gap.

Gap.

Gap, also. And don't my arms look solid here?!

Gap, also. And don’t my arms look solid here?!

I’m attempting to find business casual attire. Would either of these dresses plus a blazer count? I didn’t get either.

Lunch & snack:

Blackened chicken wrap.

I forgot to pack a lunch so I picked this up at Whole Foods between shopping and class and ate half as lunch in the car. Then I ate the other half after my classes as a snack.

Two part dinner:

Steamed artichoke.

Salmon and quinoa.

There was also a glass of wine and a small handful of trail mix in there.

I have been running around like crazy lately and that won’t stop until I finally get a day off next Sunday. That’s a full two weeks without a day off.

But at least I’m being productive, right?

#EverydayImHustling

(Fyi, the lack of an apostrophe in that hashtag annoys me so much, but it’s such a necessary hashtag in my life and I don’t want to look like a grandma/stupid celebrity that wrongly puts punctuation in hashtags, so I let it slide.)

Your turn, eaters:

What’s a food you’re looking to bring back now that it’s warming up?

What’s something from social media that annoys you?

Later eaters!

WIAW: Magical Mexican Soup

G’day eaters!

I want to start off by saying a big ole Congratulations to Jenn, the host of WIAW, for getting knocked up!

Everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant. It’s awesome and all, but…

I really hope it’s not contagious.


Pre Crossfit:

Half an apple. A lot of pb. A vanilla whey protein shake.

Crossfit:

#PROOF of my 105# floor press PR!

#PROOF of my 105# floor press PR!

PRs are my favorite.

Breakfast:

Scrambled eggs with bell pepper and avocado, and a pair of cuties.

Scrambled eggs with bell pepper and avocado, and a pair of cuties.

This is my new typical breakfast.

Yup, I’m still on the scrambled eggs and cooked veg breakfast.

Side note — these are the smallest, cutest clementines I’ve ever seen. I finally feel like I’m getting “cuties,” not like those small-ish oranges I’ve been calling “cuties” all these years.

Lunch:

A Cobb salad of sorts — bib lettuce (my favorite!), rotisserie chicken, bacon, bell pepper, cheddar, avocado, and balsamic dressing.

Look! I did something “healthy living blogger”-like and made my lunch the night before while I was making breakfast. Let’s ignore the fact that I ate it at home.

Another pair of cuties.

Another pair of cuties.

Having it ready was still mighty handy.

Snack:

Let’s play the game where you don’t scold me for buying a giant bag of Twizzlers because it was $1 and I won’t pretend I only ate one serving.

Dinner:

This meal knocked my socks off! That’s real talk, eaters. Real talk.

A pork tamales and a pair of salsas, because I was indecisive.

A pork tamales and a pair of salsas, because I was indecisive.

First, I made the pork tamales over the weekend as part of my thesis. And while they were good on the day I made them, they were so much better a few days later when the exhaustion of making them had worn off.

Second, this soup was pure magic. I wanted to make some sort of lazy tortilla soup so I mixed a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes and then leftover “broth” from the tamale meat (which was the pork cooking water pureed with cooked garlic and cooked onion). I added a little bit of spice and pureed the whole deal again.

The most magical of all Mexican soups, topped with cheddar and tortilla chip crumbles.

And by the grace of the Mexican food gods (who I imagine have heads made out of grilled cheese sandwiches) it ab-so-freaking-lutely rocked!

The end.

What was the last winging-it meal that turned out magical for you?

What’s your favorite candy?

A Few Goals

‘Ello eaters!

I spent all New Years day lying in bed with the second or third worst hangover of my life. It included the never ending precursor to a migraine that never actually started and a good bit of nausea whenever I lay on my back.

Aren’t you glad I told you that?

To make up for that TMI, here’s a picture of my brother in a suit. 

So while it wasn’t the most awesome way to spend the first day of 2013, it did give me a lot of time to think.

2012 was a phenomenal year for me.

I lived in London.

I had a great internship.

I went to Ireland with my boyfriend where I did NOT propose to him. (Oh, I never told you that funny story?)

I went to Paris twice.

I moved in with my boyfriend and started figuring out what kind of house person I am. Spoiler alert: not the obsessively clean kind.

I got the cutest, greatest, most wonderfully snuggly and adorable puppy in the world that is currently curled up in a little pretzel ball between Leon and I in bed.

I started doing Crossfit.

I hosted Thanksgiving.

Yeah, it’s been a big year. A stressful, crazy, trying, exciting, amazing, weird as fuck year.

And now I’m preparing for this new frontier year where I’ll be graduating from college and … doing other things.

And while I’m doing all these other things, I also have a few goals that I want to accomplish.

Side note: I’m calling them goals instead of resolutions because resolutions have a negative, stressful connotation. And because as Caitlinsaid far more eloquently than me, I don’t need another stressor. It’s not always about “doing more things more efficiently.”

One of my many plates of appetizers that I ate at my friends' paleo NYE party.

Anyway, my goals this year are simple.

First and foremost, I want to give more to charity. There are several causes that I’ve felt particularly drawn recently — a lot of pet rescues and childhood hunger charities. I want to donate to those causes, which means that I need to restructure my budgeting to allow for that. I want to volunteer, which means that I need to restructure my time to allow for that.

Second, I want to go on a vacation. Leon and I started a little savings jar with the hope that we’ll eventually be able to go on a vacation. We don’t know where. It won’t be extravagant. But it would be nice to go away for a few days.

Third, I want to read more. I’m not going to quantify this goal, because it’s kind of hard to read too much during the semester. But it’s just something for me to keep in mind.

Fourth, I want to drink a little less. It’s not that I drink all that much now, but I could always stand to drink less, right? Right!

Fifth, I want to eat more donuts. They’re one of my all time favorite foods and I think I can count on two hands the number of donuts that I ate last year. That’s less than one a month, which I deem despicable.

So there you have it, all the things I wish I were doing today instead of trying not to throw up and simultaneously wishing I had a big, juicy bacon cheeseburger. It’s a wild and crazy life I lead.

Your turn, eaters:

How did you spend the first day of 2013?

Do you have any goals or resolutions?

Later eaters!

WIAW: Squat Tabatas

Hiya eaters!

So I had a realization today: I’m bored.

My homework is done. I didn’t work today. I don’t have errands or crafts to do.

So you know what I did to fill my time? I did lots of dishes.

This is what it has come to.


Breakfast:

Two sunny side up eggs, a clementine, and a slice of Irish soda bread with a healthy schmear of butter.

Leon made corned beef and soda bread on Monday night, so I just had to have some leftover soda bread for breakfast. Schmeared with a thick pat of really good local butter, of course.

Dog walk:

Charlie is getting progressively crazier on his walks. His new trick yesterday was running up the side of a hill and then body surfing down it.

Charlie the body surfer.

I would probably be annoyed if he wasn’t the cutest little dummy.

Lunch:

I forgot to take a picture because I didn’t eat until something like 3:30. But it was a salad of red leaf lettuce topped with orange bell pepper, avocado, bacon, cheddar cheese, and steamed broccoli.

It was delicious. But then, when isn’t bacon on a salad a good thing?

Crossfit:

Last night’s class was a lower body killer!

Warm up: 3 rounds

Run ½ mile

10 empty barbell (which is 30#) behind the head overhead presses

15 empty barbell good mornings

10 empty barbell overhead squats

Yup, it’s the warmest warm up in town!

(That’s what we all say whenever the warm up is especially hard.)

WOD:

#HoorayCrossfit!

O’m’gah! Those squats killed me. I seriously almost couldn’t walk after each tabata. But, despite feeling like a cripple turtle on the run, I was able to run an 8:50 mile. Sure, that’s 28 seconds slower than my PR, but I’ll take it.

Appetizer:

Lay's, you will be the death of me.

Why do I buy chips? It never ends well.

Dinner:

Blackened catfish and roasted broccoli and brussels sprouts.

Sometimes Leon and I pretend to be healthy by eating fish and vegetables.

After dinner snack:

A slice of the cookie bar-cake thing I made yesterday.

Following my manifesto beliefs, this is not dessert because it’s actually almost healthy. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow.

Your turn, eaters:

What’s the hardest workout you’ve done lately?

When do you normally eat lunch?

G’night eaters!

A Food Manifesto

‘Ello eaters!

I hope you enjoyed my pictures from last night. As you can tell, I’ve very proud.

Hell, I’m very proud anytime I can do something on the computer. I’m a bit of a Luddite, don’t ya know.

Anyway, I’ve been thinking a lot about my views on food. They’ve obviously changed over the years, especially since I’ve had this blog. And while I’m absolutely positive they will change more over the years, I figured it was worth tacking them down as they as now.

Kind of like a manifesto time capsule, if that makes sense.

So, without further ado, here’s my food manifesto as it stands today, December 11, 2012.

Sprinkles don’t have calories. Or carbs.

Eat one serving of fruits or vegetables at every meal.

Bacon should be thick cut and crispy.

Food becomes exponentially better when you eat it with your hands.

Condiments make food exponentially better.

Any cut of BBQ pork is the right cut as long as it’s saucy.

The more colorful the food the healthier it is, with regards to fruits and vegetables.

Tofu is not just for vegetarians.

Salads are the best packed lunches.

Eat at least one snack a day.

Dessert isn’t healthy. If it’s healthy than it’s not dessert, it’s an after dinner snack.

Never skip meals.

Nuts should be roasted and salted.

Donuts are a perfect food.

When you don’t know what to say, bake a cake.

Smoked paprika is the best spice, second only to pepper.

Cheese.

Strawberry banana is a very over used flavor combination.

It’s always worth it to make it from scratch. At least once in your life.

Eat locally and seasonally; it’s cheaper, among other things.

Never turn down crusty bread.

Pizza is also a perfect food.

Sausage is not just for ball games and barbeques.

Wine should be dry and shared.

I’m sure there are plenty of other things that I have lots of other views on food, those are all I can think of.

Your turn, eaters:

What are some of your views on food?

Any of my views that you disagree with?

G’night eaters! 

WIAW: Good & Bad Habits

‘Ello eaters!

I got some AWESOME new today…that I’m going to share with all of you tomorrow.

I know I’m a tease, but I can’t give it all away at once. A lady makes you work for it.


Since this is the last week of WIAW where the theme is “fall into good habits” I figured it was high time I talked about habits.

If you just look at the pictures here it looks like I have pretty good habits. The food is healthy and has a good balance of carbs, fat, and protein. But for me, eating healthy meals is an easy habit. It’s what happens outside the pictures of the healthy meals that the real habit struggles happen.

Example:

Oatmeal with chia seeds and pomegranate arils, topped with pb, chocolate avocado pudding, and sprinkles, with a side of coffee and bacon.

Sure, this looks like a typical, fun bowl of blogger oats. And it definitely was! But it doesn’t show you that I kept oversleeping until I missed both my chances at Crossfit for the day, which I didn’t intend on doing at all and which I was really bummed about when I saw later that the workout was a front squat bridge and working up to max weight cleans.

Example:

Salad with leftover cranberry chutney, butternut squash and mushroom risotto, and the last of the turkey.

Does this salad mountain look just like something you would pay a lot for at Whole Foods? Aren’t I so healthy for eating salads and so thrifty for making it myself?

Yes to both of those things, but that doesn’t show you the couple of bites of pumpkin pie I ate as a snack only to find mold on it. It also doesn’t show that I took Charlie to the dog park instead of taking him for a long walk and then doing homework (while trying to train him not to climb my chair hoping to get in my lap so I don’t have to make it a habit of going to a coffee shop every time I need to do homework).

Example:

Spaghetti squash stuffed with venison meatballs and marinara and topped with cheese.

Look! I’m eating spaghetti squash to control my carb/gluten intake and yet I’m relaxed enough to put some cheese on top.

All of those things are true. It’s also true that I ate a Balance Bar for a snack, which is an expensive habit I really need to break. Just like it’s true that I got the Biscoff cookies out with the intention of eating one, but I ended up eating four.

Luckily, though, these pictures also don’t show that I did, in fact, floss yesterday, meaning that I’m slowly making a habit of flossing at least once a week.

So not all my habits are bad, right?

Your turn, eaters:

What are some habits you’re proud of?

Do you know the proper time to floss — before or after brushing?

G’night eaters!

WIAW: Chirp

Hiya eaters!

I am FINALLY getting a chance to sit down today and it feels ah-maze-ing! Actually, I’m laying on my bed while I ice my back. And yes, it does warrant elongating that word into three syllables.

Like I mentioned yesterday, my life is still crazy. It’ll get better the second I’m done with both cleaning and homework. Until then, I’m hustling.

Speaking of hustling…


Breakfast:

I am incapable of taking quick showers in the winter, so by the time I was showered and dressed yesterday I had exactly 5 minutes before I was supposed to leave for the chiropractor. So I threw together a quick breakfast of fried eggs over leftover quinoa with kale and avocado, akin to this breakfast.

And then I shoved half of it in my face before dashing out the door.

Chiropractor:

First, I abbreviate “chiropractor” to “chiro” in my iCal, but autocorrect keeps changing it to “chirp” and then I get amused every time I see that I have a morning appointment with “chirp” like Cinderella.

Does that make sense?

Anyway, the good ole chirp cracked everything and then massaged my hip muscles some more. As of right now my back is feeling considerably better than it was before, but not in any way 100%.

Coffee:

Harris Teeter cookies are so good.

I had an hour between the chirp and work so I grabbed a free Harris Teeter cookie and then parked myself at the Starbucks in Teeter to do some homework.

Grande coffee with cold soy, the usual but a little bigger.

Work:

Work wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad. It’s very stressful for me to be stuck in a place where I know I have to be and that is on my To Do list (like work or class) and feel bored or unproductive or like I’m trying to waste time.

Balance bar #1 for the day.

While wasting time/getting something from the stock room I took bites of my bar. Because half a small breakfast and a cookie don’t cut it.

Lunch:

Bibb and arugala, apples, avocado, pork chop pieces, homemade bacon, bell pepper, and a mix of balsamic vinaigrette and BBQ sauce.

In the 40 minutes I had between work and class, I ate this delicious salad.

Seriously, the balsamic vinaigrette and BBQ sauce dressing I’ve been mixing up is delicious. As were the TWO kinds of pork.

I really love pork, said the non-Jew.

Snack:

Balance bar #2 for the day.

Having two bars in one day really bugs me, but there really wasn’t anything I could do about it unless I wanted a far less balanced (pun intended) snack.

Dinner:

Bacon and vegetable frittata.

In case you were unaware, frittatas are my lifesaver.

Dessert:

Left: Sweet Water festival ale.

And in case you were unaware again, I really love dark beers.

Guinness.

The end.

Your turn, eaters:

What are some funny autocorrects you’ve had?

Do you take free samples?

G’night eaters!

Frittata Formula

G’day eaters!

Ya know how last week I said that I thought I was losing my blogging mojo?

Well, this week I realized it’s not that I’m losing my mojo. I just don’t have enough time for my mojo to flow.

I have been endlessly bombarded with homework all week. I have to clean the house in preparation for the family coming on Friday. I should probably wash some linens before Friday, too. I haven’t gone grocery shopping because I’m doing a big shop for Thanksgiving tomorrow and it appears that I’m just not capable of two shopping trips in one week. Oh, and I have Crossfit, work, class, and the chiropractor, too.

Oh, and Charlie ate my camera memory card and USB card reader so I need to find time to go buy new ones.

I think that’s it. Hell, I hope that’s it.

All of that stress is making blogging sound very unappealing, not to mention that I have nothing to blog about. It’s also making dinner my least favorite time of the day because, let’s be honest, in a situation like this take out ALWAYS sounds way better than scrounging for somehting in the fridge.

But in an effort to save money and my gut (because I’m trying to tighten up my eating just a hair to make up for my considerably scaled back Crossfit WODs), I do scrounge. I make meals that aren’t exactly thrilling and certainly aren’t blog recipe-worthy in an effort to scrape every possible penny out of my fridge food and not eat Chinese food every night. (Though a big box of Mongolian beef sounds so damn good right now.)

And on nights like this, frittatas are my best friend.

I’ve probably blogged about frittatas before. (And spelled them every which way before, too, because in this post alone I’ve spelled it three different ways.) Deities know I’ve made them often enough. So I’m not going to call this a recipe. Instead, it’s a formula.

Vegetables pre-saute plus HOMEMADE bacon.

Chop and saute whatever vegetables you have on had.

Whisk together 5 eggs with a bit of whatever seasonings you’re feeling.

We love smoked paprika in this house.

Spray the bottom of a pie pan or oven-safe pan with oil (if you didn’t saute the vegetables in the pan you’ll be using, because, oh yeah, that’s a good idea).

Bake it in a 350F oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the middle doesn’t jiggle.

1/3 of the frittata plus cheese and hot sauce.

And really and truly, eaters, that is it. Sometimes I serve it with a grain. Sometimes I just eat a little extra dessert to make sure I got enough carbs. Or sometimes, like tonight, I have a beer or two or three.

My beer on the right: Sweet Water Festival stout.

Because let’s be honest, eaters. I really freaking need a drink right now.

And a Guinness, because I love them so freaking much.

Your turn, eaters:

What’s an easy, formulaic recipe you fall back on a lot?

What’s the first life-thing to fall by the wayside when you’re stressed and busy?

G’night eaters!

PS — Sorry for the crappy iPhone photos. I JUST bought a new memory card and reader so Thursday’s post should be better (because I already took the photos for WIAW).

Honestly, Soup

Hi eaters!

It’s Tuesday, right? I have been so bad about days lately.

Anyway, I didn’t blog last night. I think I’m losing a bit of my blogging mojo because I had time to blog, I just didn’t have anything to blog about or any desire to pull something out of my ass. I was tempted to put up some stupid meme about how I was doing other things or just something funny, but then I realized that producing bad content dilutes the good content I produce.

So I didn’t.

Because I do occasionally write something really good and worth reading or worth making and when I do, I really want you to read it and enjoy it and be happy you spent those five minutes with me.

So, there’s my two cents. And like two actual pennies, it’s not worth much.

Upward and onward to…more honesty.

I once read a blog post somewhere about staging food for photos. Maybe it was an article, not a blog post.

But that’s irrelevant.

The relevant thing is that it said to set two places and make two plates of food because then the photos look like a real, inviting meal and if you want to get people to make your recipes you had to make them seem inviting rather than just you eating them alone in your pajamas.

That got me thinking. My first thought was “eff no” because that meant I not only had to own sets of matching dishes (something I certainly didn’t have then and barely have now), but that I then had to wash those extra dishes.

My second thought, though, was why did I need to fake eating meals with someone?

At the time, I was cooking solely for myself and generally eating by myself while watching TV (because all my friends had meal plans) or eating while hanging out with someone who wasn’t eating.

And now, I eat dinner with Leon. The other two meals of the day are still solo. And I sure as heck am not going to bust out fancy dishes and attempt lighting and make Leon wait while the food gets cold as I attempt to get all the right angles on a piece of chicken.

That all sounds like lunacy to me.

So, as you may have noticed over the past couple of months (if you’ve been reading that long), my photos have become significantly less staged. Sure, some things, like muffins or cookies or other tepid, non-time sensitive creations still get staged, but for the most part my pictures are taken on the big wooden cutting board that sits atop my yellow prep table that used to be a baby changing table. I try to get most of my pictures during the day because the light from the windows in my kitchen are lovely, but even that isn’t something I strive for.

I guess I strive for honesty.

So honestly, my recipes aren’t the greatest things in the world. Honestly, they are not in any war gourmet and I don’t even pretend I know what I’m doing. They probably won’t wow your friends at a dinner party (except maybe these crostinis) nor will they earn you any friends if you don’t already have some.

But honestly, they’re cheap and easy and don’t ever require more than two pans (because I only have two) or any extra funky ingredients or use big, hard to pronounce words.

And I can honestly say that while neither of us will be appearing on Top Chef anytime soon, my recipes do the trick. They feed you. They nourish you. They make me happy and hopefully they make you happy, too.

So, while half the country is cold and buried in water, I think we could all use a little soup. With bacon. And cheese.

Baked Potato Soup

¼ onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

6-7 small-medium russet potatoes, skin on and cubed

3 c chicken/vegetable stock

3 T butter, dairy or non dairy

1 ½ c milk, dairy or non dairy

1 egg

salt and pepper, to taste

oil

water

toppings

Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Sauté onion until fragrant and then add the garlic. Once the garlic is fragrant pour in the stock, butter, and potatoes. Stir everything together, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and leave it to simmer for ~15 minutes.

Add plenty of salt and pepper, stir it all together, and then add the milk. Cover the pot and leave it to simmer again for ~10 minutes.

At this point the potatoes should be plenty soft and starting to break down. Once the soup is creamy stir in the egg. Continue stirring the soup for 5 minutes and then cover again for ~10. Stir some more.

The potatoes should almost all break down to leave a thick, chunky soup. Feel free to puree/smash some of the chunks to make a smoother soup. Add some water if it has gotten too thick.

Prepare your toppings, ladle up a few bowls, and top away.

Leon adding his cheese.

Leon and I went with bacon, cheddar, and sautéed asparagus because we had all those things on hand.

Jalapenos, salsa, sautéed greens, and the like would also make good toppings. But like I said, we used what we had on hand. No need to spend extra money to try to make you think this meal was actually planned or that we actually keep a thoroughly stocked fridge.

Left: His. Right: Hers.

Leon said this soup was “really good for a first time without a recipe,” which is how most of my recipes turn out. And let’s be honest, if I don’t have time to wash an extra dish do you really think I have time to remake and re-remake recipes all day?

Nope. And neither do you, so trust me when I say this is honestly a good soup.

What do you think, eaters:

What’s your favorite kind of soup?

Tell me something honest about yourself.

G’night eaters!

WIAW: And Then…

G’day eaters!

Tomorrow I leave for Vermont and I’m so freaking ‘cited!

But because today is not tomorrow, let’s talk about yesterday.

That’s logical, right?


Crossfit:

I had every intention of going at 6am yesterday, but with a super long day ahead of me I decided that sleep was more important.

Breakfast:

Oatmeal with chia seeds and a plum, topped with peanut butter, and a piece of bacon on the side.

We still haven’t turned the heat on and it’s been getting a little nippy in the mornings. So I used that excuse to not eat the same breakfast I’ve been eating forever.

It was glorious.

And then I chugged the last few sips of my tea and left for work.

Snack:

A pear and Justin's maple almond butter, and a Balance bar.

Halfway through my shift I took a snack break for what was by then a slightly scraped up pear and almond butter.

And then I chugged the last half of my first tall coffee of the day and got back to folding denim.

Lunch:

A salad with bib lettuce, yellow bell pepper, a bit of chicken, a piece of bacon, and balsamic vinaigrette with lots of pepper.

After work I headed over to school, found a sunny bench, and enjoyed this really delicious lunch.

A cheese sandwich on Great Harvest High Protein Dakota bread.

And then I quickly grabbed my second tall coffee of the day, skimmed a few chapters in my textbook, and did research for a project that my professor hasn’t assigned yet.

Snack:

After my first class I ate the Balance bar pictured above.

And then I spent two hours doing a pretty stupid PhotoShop project that involved lots and lots of rotating and lasso selecting. But in the end I turned a picture of a pear into a line of Rockettes, so that’s kind of cool, right?

Dinner:

A roast beef, caramelized onions, and Swiss cheese sandwich with tater tots from the Lindley Filling Station.

After school I went home and figured out what take out to order because neither Leon nor I felt like cooking or doing dishes.

And then Leon went to pick it up. And I ate the whole thing.

And that’s it. Another super busy day in the books, but I’m more then okay with it because it brought me one day closer to Vermont.

#HotDamnHooray!

Your turn, eaters:

What’s more important to you — sleep or exercise?

What are some lunchbox-appropriate snacks I can start packing?

Later eaters!
