Breakfast: leftover pasty filling, 3 kim bob. I was starving an hour and a half after eating this breakfast, and afraid today may be shaping up to look like yesterday.
Late morning snack: 3 more kim bob, cup of "Fusion Green and White" tea. My brain had that low-sugar, cottony feeling.
Lunch: 2 vegetable dumplings, 6 injulmi (3 mugwort, 3 plain). This felt like just a snack as well, but I imagine it had some significant calories, so I'm trying to have self-restraint.
Late afternoon snack: cottony feeling again. 4 more injulmi (two of each flavor).
Dinner: 6 boiled quail eggs (see yesterday), oven-fried potatoes and red onion, strawberries, and this Savory Soda Bread from Cooking without a Net. I tried hard to make the quail eggs medium-soft-boiled, as in this post, but just over 3 minutes yielded mostly hard-boiled eggs. They were still delicious, though, with a richness and indefinable unique taste missing from chicken eggs. I raved about them while my family looked on indulgently.
Snacks: besides those aforementioned, 4 cups of coffee (2 regular, 2 decaf, with half and half), 1 glass cabernet.
Breakfast: leftover soda bread with butter and honey, slice of Pepperidge Farm whole wheat toast with butter, half a grapefruit with a little sugar, little packet of mustard peas.
Lunch: ambasha with butter, 2 white flour tortillas dipped in sour cream and salsa. Note: I do not believe this, or my breakfast, for that matter, to be a healthy meal. But, as my daughter lamented this morning while packing her lunch for school, "All there is, is bread! Look! Bread (pointing), bread, bread, bread! We have like four kinds of bread and nothing else!" While this was not strictly true, it was close enough to true to be unfortunate.
Shopping (Co-op): mini sea salt chocolate chess pie, 3 rolls toilet paper, quart of Brown Cow vanilla yogurt, quart of Brown Cow maple yogurt, broccoli, 3 russet potatoes, 2 avocados, Cabot sharp cheddar, 2 gigantic Porterhouse steaks, 3 lb. bag of mandarin oranges, super-hi-potency probiotic capsules (for my husband), Baby Bella mushrooms, Equal Exchange organic Love Bug coffee, 2 prepared Ethiopian meals, $105. I spent about $44 on our Valentine's dinner, which seems like a lot, but I calculate that the same meal would cost us around $85 in a restaurant (including service), so the cost isn't really so terrible. Plus we will not have to fight the crowds.
Dinner: the two prepared Ethiopian meals I bought at the co-op, which consisted of injera, a yellow lentil dish, a greens dish, and a potato-carrot dish. These were okay, but not great. We live in a heavily Ethiopian area with many excellent restaurants, and this food was comparatively bland, with sour, slightly stale injera. It was cheap, however, and I bought it at my neighborhood grocery store, so there's that. You can't do that in Montana.
Snacks: 4 cups of coffee, 2 regular, 2 decaf, with half and half. One cup of Pero, with half and half and sugar. Glass of cabernet in the evening. 2 fun-size green tea KitKats in the evening.
