I’m starting to realize that abnormal weeks may be my new normal. This week started off on a celebratory note, and we’re supposed to be getting some crazy snow storm within the next few days (the traditional last-gasp March storm)…we’ll see what happens!

9:51 AM:


Oatmeal with berries and granola; coffee

These weekday posts are getting pretty boring, eh? I knew when I started this that I eat basically the same thing for weeks at a time, but for some reason it didn’t occur to me just how tedious documenting this would be. Plus, my lunch is usually hideous (it’s pretty difficult to make leftovers in tupperware remotely presentable). What do you guys think? Should I start only documenting dinner, since most of the point of this was to record successful recipes/meals? I feel like there’s some value in recording everything, but if I’m eating the same thing every day for breakfast and lunch down to my snacks, it feels a little silly to try to make my pictures look slightly different every day. Quality over quantity, or keep on keeping on? If you feel some type of way (one way or the other), drop me a comment.

Veggie lasagna; clementine; Cheez-It Ridges white cheddar 

See? Hideous!

2:16 PM:


Graze lemon drizzle flapjacks

You know the drill. But actually, I can take this opportunity to talk for a quick sec about these flapjacks, because they’re glorious. They don’t look like much, but they’re bizarrely good – they’re like a granola bar, if granola bars were freshly baked and soft. I don’t know how they stay fresh for so long, I don’t know how they get them to keep such a delicate texture…I don’t know what kind of witchcraft Graze has going on, but these things are addictive as hell. I used to get the whole Graze box with 4 individual snacks, but I found most of the snacks to be weird and silly – they were usually tiny little mixes of, like, mini amaretto cookies with white chocolate chips and craisins. It was like eating snacks you’d put together for your dolls’ tea party when you were six years old. But these flapjacks were unlike anything I’d ever had, and I was overjoyed when I saw they had started selling them on their own. They’re not healthy per se, but they’re made with all real, sustainably-sourced ingredients, so I feel a little bit better about eating them.

Jeff received some good news today, so we had an unplanned sushi night at our favorite local place to celebrate. We each got a few rolls and shared – it ended up being a ton of food, and we left absolutely stuffed (this was only part of what we ordered – Jeff had an additional two rolls on his plate, and we also shared a peanut butter banana”Elvis Roll” for dessert). This restaurant has a very inauthentic and verydelicious “filet roll,” which is a sushi roll wrapped in filet mignon…we had to skip it this time because of our whole “meat free” deal, but we were pretty pleased with our selections nonetheless.

10:23 PM:


Frozen chocolate-dipped peanut butter cookie

After sushi, we went home and watched TV for a bit. My appetite had returned by bedtime, and my sweet tooth demanded I eat a cookie from my Christmas stash before I headed upstairs.
