Breakfast: leftover collard greens, handful of sliced almonds, cherry pie.
Lunch: just as I was preparing for a lunch break at home, the phone rang and my boss asked me to come in to work and cover for a coworker for a couple of hours. As far as lunch goes, this was lucky, because I had very little food at home and brought something home from the restaurant. (At 2:15): cheeseburger (with American cheese!), fries, little coleslaw.
Dinner: picked up takeout from our local Thai restaurant on my way home from yoga class. My meal: yellowtail and scallion sushi roll, green curry with beef and white rice.
Dessert: we finally had the grapefruit sorbet I made yesterday. Its texture was not perfect (probably I should have let my stupid ice cream machine keep on stirring longer than the suggested 40 minutes), and it was a little more sugary than I think it needed to be. But the fresh grapefruit flavor was definitely appealing. Even my husband said he liked it, and he always says he hates grapefruit. Of course, sometimes it seems like he harbors food prejudices that he can often get over just by tasting something. Exceptions: seafood (I witnessed him tasting it once, and he nearly threw up), cucumbers. And eggplant, which he ate over and over until finally admitting a distaste for it.
Snacks: 4 cups of coffee, 2 regular, 2 decaf, with half and half. I poured the last half-glass of sherry in the evening, but it was sludgy and full of sediment: is this normal? It didn't seem so to me, or at least not appetizing. So I threw it out.
Breakfast (before work): Leftover green curry with beef, white rice.
Lunch (after work, 2:30): 2 boiled eggs, the last little bit of green curry (because it was the only thing I had with vegetables in it), grapefruit sorbet.
Shopping (Co-op): organic lactose-free 1% milk, organic whole milk, quart of Brown Cow vanilla nonfat yogurt, Field Day Bran Plus cereal, bag of navel oranges, dried apricots, dates, slivered almonds, Equal Exchange coffee beans, organic broccoli, bananas, 2 avocados, 3 Ataulfo mangoes. $54.
Dinner: I made some white rice with slivered almonds and minced apricots and dates mixed in, with an Arabian spice blend called kabsa (at least I think that is what I used!). Also roasted some broccoli and served the rice with fried eggs on top. I liked the rice, but not with eggs. It would have gone better with chicken or lamb, but my daughter is a vegetarian for Lent. It also does have some protein from the almonds, so is fairly nutritious all by itself.
