Work from home days frequently lead to me not really eating lunch - oatmeal at 8am (such a good start!), pretzels at 10:30 (all right), tortilla chips at noon (terrible choice, clearly not lunch), and carrots and hummus now at 2pm (at least it's healthy?). All this with perfectly good healthy veggie-heavy leftovers in the fridge. Sigh.

Oatmeal.
“Keep what is of no use at the moment, and later you will find what you need, one of her grandmothers had told her, the water in which you soak them will also serve to cook them, and whatever remains from the cooking will cease to be water, but will have become broth. It is not only in nature that from time to time not everything is lost and something is gained.” ― José Saramago, Blindness

The stockmarket is the worst place you grow your money passively except for every other alternative.

I fried red pepper strips and bacon, swirled in some cooked pasta and a half-cup of tomato sauce, and topped the whole mess with fresh grated parm. All right.

Salad, blue potatoe gnocchi with mushrooms, andouille, mushrooms and caramelized onions.  Cornmeal biscuit cobbler with cherries, blueberries, raspberries and rhubarb with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

Chick peas, pulled pork, candied lemon peel. There's no way it should taste as good as it does.

Fig/matcha/ginger/whey protein smoothie.

that actually sounds really good. never thought of using fig in my smoothie.

I ate 1/2 wheat/tahini/tomato/spinach/roasted zuchinni sandwich with sweet potato fries + mustard and 1/2 giant kiwi.

It's now 2.30pm at home here in Auckland. I've just put a Moroccan Chicken Tagine in the slow cooker which will be ready to eat at 6pm.

Meantime I will: Then take the preschooler with me to collect the school age boy. Come back home, meet up with the high school daughter who has gotten herself home. Make some pastry and put it in the fridge.  Take all three kids with me to the dressmakers where the big girl is having a formal dress altered.

Come home, get the pastry out of the fridge and finish making this South African custard tart.

We will all eat dinner around 6.30pm: myself, three kids, DH, as well as our lovely boarder.

Drive the daughter to a music concert at 7pm. Probably go back and collect her around 9.30pm.

Loving my garden this morning.  Breakfast was homegrown eggs, baby red potatoes and strawberries with some CostCo bacon on the side.  I also ate a carrot straight out of the ground - I guess that was an appetizer?

I definitely want to make this Cucumber and Wood Fungus Salad soon ... maybe tomorrow?

Our house lies about 500m from a great Chinese supermarket. If for some reason that one doesn't stock what we need, there is another one a further 50m beyond it.

Here's to 21st C multicultural cities.

This week's soup is caldo verde. Except instead of sausage I used some bacon strips. I bought the kale to use in kefir smoothies, but I haven't gotten my act together enough to revive my frozen grains. So it became soup instead.

toasted english muffin with ricotta, a good slice of tomato, black pepper, fleur de sel, and garam marsala on top.

a single strawberry from the hanging basket for dessert.

And the last few swallows of my alcoholic root beer from last night that I had forgotten in the fridge.

Free airport lounge pasta. Tasty enough, but grossly overcooked. Air Canada, you can serve me decent food on the plane, but your lounge specialize in Miami Beach "before 5 pm special" cafeteria food! Stop it!

Homemade slow-cooked beef and vegetable pie. And homemade cake. Love having friends whose automatic response to a birthday is: "Come over for dinner; we'll cook!"

My brother seems to be on a mission to single-handedly overfish the California coastline, and sent up the best smoked salmon I've ever had (and I've eaten a lot of salmon, being from the PNW).  Just finished the first package with brie and homemade paleo crackers for lunch.

Two ingredient cookies (2 overripe bananas and 1 cup of oatmeal, all mashed together and baked). But I cheat and add 2tbs cocoa powder and a handful of raisins, producing guilt-free dark chocolate oatmeal raisin cookies.


This follows a thoroughly fabulous prik khing - the first time I've really gotten it to taste like it does at a good Thai restaurant. Happiness is (apparently) more fish sauce and a little bit of sugar.

Last night's take-home meal from work (I work at a restaurant) was rice, and some kind of chicken curry - not sure if it's red curry, massaman curry or panang curry. But anyway, still had lots of sauce left after eating it for dinner yesterday, so today I cooked some tofu, broccoli and prawns/shrimp in the leftover curry sauce and that's my lunch for today! I love it when my meals are so easily sorted! :)

After an impulse buy of corn meal (at the interesting but pricey Spanish grocery store), I decided to try making arepas, stuffed with rotisserie chicken, a bit of salsa and some cheese.

A bit underdone on the inside, but tastes nice.

In the slow cooker, simmering away as I type:

5 chicken thigh cutlets (fried), 2 tbsps mild curry paste (fried), 3 peeled chopped sweet potatoes, can of coconut cream, 2 cups chicken stock, 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut, 1/4 cup fish sauce, 3 tbsps brown sugar - cooked on high for 2.5 hours. Turned down to low for a further 2 hrs.

I'll throw in some mushrooms and coriander close to serving time, and will serve with rice.

(When I see the beef on special, this one is next: Beef Rendang.)

Diced chicken thighs or do you cook them whole then shred?

Just cook them whole (mine were on the bone), and then no real need to shred, but if you wanted to, of course they would fall apart readily :)

Lamb noodle soup.  It's pretty good considering I made it mostly with scraps of things in the freezer!
