What to Eat?
Do you ever have one of those days when you just can’t figure out what to eat? I had that problem today. Nothing seemed appetizing and it just seemed like far too much effort to make anything. Add the fact that I had no food in the house and really, just a recipe for disaster (no pun intended).
For breakfast I had oatmeal with blueberries and it was just blah. I had trouble finishing it. I was working and eating at the same time which is a direct violation of French Women Don’t Get Fat so maybe thats why I didn’t enjoy breakfast. Probably serves me right, right Mireille?
I finally thought about lunch at around 1:30. Usually I’m starving around noon so this was very unusual for me. Again, I had nothing in the fridge but somehow concocted a yogurt/peach salsa/avocado/boiled egg thing. It turned out as bad as it sounds.
Dinner was supposed to be at the Harvest Festival at Maya’s school. Maya was so excited that she decided to get dressed up:
How cute is this skirt? My mom made it. I wish I inherited her sewing talents but I can barely fix a button.
There was a surprisingly huge selection of food at the school – turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, lots of rice, crackers, cheese, salad, fruit, and dessert galore. I made a plate for Maya. But the smell of the turkey totally turned me off and I couldn’t eat a thing. Plus it was 4:30, too early for dinner, even for me.
I swear I taught Maya how to use a fork, I have no idea why she’s using her fingers in this picture. Anyway she ate the entire plate including a chocolate cupcake that is obscured by her hand.
We left the Harvest Festival and headed to Trader Joe’s where she proceeded to ask me what was for dinner. I think she eats more than I do.
Dinner was another disaster. I made a salmon burger from Trader Joe’s and for some reason it was disgusting. I threw most of it out. Luckily I had some toasted sourdough with butter to make up for it. Can’t go wrong with carbs! I had some steamed spinach to round off my random day.
Before I disappear to watch Top Chef and eat some chocolate (yes another exciting Friday night) I’ll leave you with a picture of a Cole Haan bag I saw and fell in love with…
I can’t justify buying this right now but it is beautiful and great for traveling. Good leather too…If only I needed another bag!!
