For breakfast, homemade egg, cheese and chicken sausage "biscuit" on english muffin. Today after a little sledding kids had lentil soup and I had lima beans with yellow rice (yes from the box but it was good!). Because of the holidays, actually TOO much food around. I'll have things planned to eat, and then people will bring more food in, which will need to get eaten and the planned menu delayed, or thrown out. I've had to throw food out these last couple weeks : (

@partgypsy could you freeze the food? your breakfast sounds delish.

chomping on a bean and cheese burrito for lunch.

What I ended up having to throw out was a couple plates of food from a dinner, someone brought to me; one "hot" food that contained chicken, one a plate of cold stuff, salad. I already had a lot of leftovers from a dinner I made.  I suppose I could have frozen the chicken plate, but I have gotten sick real badly off of chicken before so I'm just leery of eating non fresh chicken.

Leftover rice and beans topped with pulled pork left over from a different meal and drizzled with sriracha sauce. Side of raw spinach.

Homemade granola with oats (duh), walnuts, dates, cocoa powder, chocolate nibs, and a pile of spices. Yummy.

Same breakfast every day, eggs in a basket with homemade bread.

Last night I tried to make battered shrimp.  They tasted very good, but the batter did NOT adhere.  I'll have to work on that recipe a bit.

Oh yay - I just made Okonomiyaki for the first time and it was delish. Pork + cabbage combo is kind of hard not to like.

Made my first roasted pork loin (garlic-rosemary). Bought a inexpensive, fancy meat thermometer. Delish. Served with mashed sweet potatoes and corn-zucchini mix. 2 Lunch box Leftovers packed.

I've just finished my bike to work mid-morning snack
- 6 apples (small)
- 2 large beets (raw - peeled)
- 3 oranges
- 3 bananas
- 2 large carrots (raw - peeled)
- 3 tbsp chia seeds soaked in a cup of water

Only an hour and a half until lunch!

Yep.  They're like shitty red carrots, but they contain a lot of Beta-Alanine (especially if eaten raw) and nitrates which increase your aerobic capacity rather spectacularly.  Plus, red pee is fun.

I'm not fazed by the raw beets. I add them to my salads and smoothies. I also agree with the red pee comment.

Rather, I am fazed by the amount of food you consider "a snack".

What do your regular meals look like?

The very last of the lemon mead my brother and I made in 2005.  I wonder if the recipe is around somewhere?  I doubt we could repeat this mead though, it was fantastic!

I make my own sorbets from frozen fruit or fruit juice frozen in cubes. Just add to Vitamix with a little bit of water and voila! you have sorbet with no additives.

Today's sorbet was made with frozen guanabana juice, a Caribbean specialty fruit. I've heard this fruit has high anti cancer properties.

It was so delicious and creamy!

I also like to make sorbet with frozen mango, frozen coconut meat, or frozen raspberries.

Whoa! I’m amazed you can age homemade mead that long! Was it starting to turn at all or just becoming more fantastic?

It was about the same level of fantastic that it was when it was about a year old.

I didn't really *age* it, I had 1/4 bottle in the fridge in the basement I forgot about.  I do however make mead regularly, and it ages very well up to 5 years.  After that I couldn't tell you cause it's gone.

I haven't eaten these recently but they are my favourite dessert, and here is a recipe: Hong Kong-style mango pancakes.

That's how I get my kids to eat them.  Red pee, pink poop.  Even better if I feed them blueberries at the same time.

You can't see the sugar once mixed

Currently eating spring rolls filled with jicama and carrot stir fry, bean sprouts, lettuce, various herbs and a sprinkle of crushed roasted peanut. No peanut sauce, but a mix of plum sauce, crushed roasted peanut and sriracha tastes good too.

Desert is a fruit salad with cherry, mango, apple, 2 types of pear and cantaloupe.

Fridge clean-out lunch: crisp-tender asparagus, fried banana, homemade chorizo. The chorizo and banana were great together.

Iced rooibos. We drink a lot of this now - probably 80% of the time we drink tea we choose it over black. It's less shitty for whatever containers you put it in and doesn't go cloudy in the fridge like black tea does. Plus no caffeine which is good.

Leftover mash up: last bits of an instant pot whole chicken, barbecue sauce, homemade mayo, shredded cabbage & carrots topped with crumbled up tortilla chips. Much better than expected.

Black beans (cooked in the instant pot with onion and garlic) with a sprinkle of sharp cheddar, a dollop of greek yogurt, and a handful of plantain chips.  So satisfying!

Discounted breakfast sandwich. I know which part of the day they switch over and sell the old breakfast sandwiches for 75% off to make room for the lunch sandwiches.

Oatmeal. Because it’s what’s left in the pantry. But purple due to the blueberries from the freezer.

Afternoon, concoction of ground pork, okra and corn served over brown rice. Mostly because that’s what is left from the freezer.

I should go grocery shopping.

We've got roasted bronzino with onion, lemon, and rosemary stuck all up inside it on the schedule for dinner. It's SO hot here that a nice clean fish dish sounded perfect.

First I have to drink a margarita though.

Right now I'm eating a banana.

For dinner I'll eat chicken & white rice w/carrots and a bit of onion.

I always add butter to the rice/carrots/onion mix.

Chuck roast slow-cooked in tomatoes, chili powder, oregano, garlic, and cumin with sliced onion and bell peppers. I shredded this into taco meat and ate it on fresh corn tortillas that I made this morning, topped with Herdez guacamole salsa.

Carrot-apple-raisin salad. Haven't thought about it in 30 years or so, but realized this afternoon I had the ingredients and it was a fine low-cal healthy snack food. It's as good as I remember, though unlike my relatives, I made it without mayo.

Watermelon rind stir fried with soy sauce and spices.

The flavor is pretty similar to zucchini but the texture isn't quite the same. I cut it into chunks but I think strips would have been better, and I crowded the pan too much for a proper stir fry. Trying to come up with another cooking method to experiment with. I've made pickles with it in the past.

From what I've read it's also quite nutritious, more so than the insides.
