Breakfast (6:30 am): leftover red lentils, one leftover avocado cup salad half, two "Oreo" cookies. The cookies are even better than they were last night-- they have completely come into their own.
Lunch (3:15 pm, after work): side of plain fried rice, side of cold broccoli with sesame oil, 1 fried egg.
Dinner: (9 pm, at Copper Canyon, after movie-- so late for us!): marinated salmon with mustard sauce, orzo rice, spinach. Glass of Pinot Grigio.
Snacks: 4 cups of coffee, 2 regular, 2 decaf, with half and half. Spoonful of white chocolate raspberry milkshake at work. Bag of potato chips and a whole-milk cappuccino at the movies, which spoiled my dinner.
Breakfast (eaten 11:00 am, at Woodside Deli): "breakfast quesadilla" (quesadilla-shaped tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon, veggies, and served with sour cream and salsa), home fries, coffee. The waitress recommended this over their huevos rancheros, on the basis that the quesadilla was a more substantial plate. It was substantial, and it was good. But with all the weight I've been putting on, I might have been better off going with the smaller huevos.
Shopping (with husband at Co-op): organic whole milk, organic 1% lactose-free milk, vanilla gelato, Field Day organic wheat squares cereal, $18.
Dinner (my stepson and his girlfriend came over for stepson's birthday): I put out a few cashews and mustard peas as tiny appetizers, and beer, cabernet and madeira were available for drinking. I had like one cashew and a few mustard peas, a glass of madeira and a glass of cabernet. Main course was these meat-and-potato pasties, lima beans, and a salad of romaine, butter lettuce, carrot, cilantro, and spring onion, with honey mustard dressing. I also dipped my pasty in whole-grain mustard. For dessert, we had wacky cake cupcakes (I had two) and vanilla bean gelato (I skipped the gelato).
Snacks: 3 cups of additional coffee, 1 regular, 2 decaf, with half and half. 1 homemade "Oreo" in the mid-morning, because I was so starving waiting for my husband to be ready to go to breakfast. 1 taste-test of a mochi strawberry (from Bon Appetit September issue) that I attempted to make to go with the cupcakes for dessert. My mochi just didn't turn out right. I steamed it ten minutes longer than the recipe suggested, but it never turned translucent and still tasted fairly raw, so I think I should have gone on steaming it. On the plus side, it was not that difficult to wrap the strawberries in the mochi. On the minus side, between the crappy winter strawberries and the half-raw rice flour, they are nearly inedible. My husband opined that he liked them.
