I must be dreaming. Is it really Wednesday, and am I really, finally posting a WIAW entry? Go figure, I did forget to take pictures this week, but because I have my pictures from last week, we’re all set. So without further adieu, I give you Floptimism’s first What I Ate Wednesday (Er, Tuesday, But I’m Posting About It Wednesday) Post.
I woke up and ate a banana and a peanut butter Kashi bar by candlelight. I normally start my day with yogurt, but with the power being out, I had to get creative.
A mid-morning snack consisting of dried prunes and my favorite kind of almonds (packed in my handy-dandy single-serving almond container).
Lunch almost went by unphotographed, but at the last minute I remembered! Leftover Judi’s Chicken, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, and sautéed spinach – a meal my mom had managed to complete the night before just before our power cut out.
I had an afternoon snack of freeze-dried apples with a touch of Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter that I moved from my powerless fridge to the employee fridge at the hospital in an attempt to salvage a few cold items.
Dinner was a restaurant affair, as we joined the many other people in the surrounding area without power trying to find a warm meal and a little bit of light. We finally settled on a small Mediterranean place, and I ordered a delicious vegan split pea soup followed by…
…a sampler appetizer platter full of falafel, hummus, baba ghanoush, Israeli salad, and a tabbouleh. It was exactly what I was looking for – sometimes I just crave a big plate of vegetables – and they did it really well.
Just 15 minutes after we finished dinner, our power thankfully came back on, and it was back to my usual food routine. Maybe next week I’ll have a more normal day to share with you!
