I had a very special kind of weekend. Saturday morning husband and I went horseback riding again. For two hours! I’m still sore in quite unusual places. After returning home, I cleaned up and headed to a friend’s birthday party. We sang and danced and chatted and goofed around all night long. Finally, I went to bed at 4 am. It was awesome!
I didn’t drink that much, but staying up so late definitely threw me off balance.
Here’s what I ate on Sunday, the day after the Party of the year.
I slept until noon, which hardly ever happens, and woke up slightly hungry. So I made myself a late but tasty open-faced sandwich.
Afterwards I was still a little hungry, so I had a small bowl of fruit muesli with rice milk and fresh blueberries on top. I still can’t get enough of all kinds of berries these days.
Thanks to my very late breakfast and filling snack, I ended up skipping lunch, which also hardly ever happens.
A few weeks ago, my husband told me that he’d be fine having bibimbap for lunch and dinner every day. So that’s what I’ve been serving him since then. I wonder when he will finally get bored with it. I’ll let you know.
While I don’t really have a favorite ice cream flavor (I order something different every time), red bean ice cream is definitely among my personal top 3, whenever it’s available. Wait, beans in ice cream?! It’s delicious, I swear! The beans tasty nutty and subtly sweet, while adding an extra dose of plant-based protein and fiber. Using beans in dessert dishes is actually quite common in many Asian countries, mostly in the form of red bean paste.
And then I was hit by a very strange late night craving for something crunchy and fruity. The solution: peanut butter and cherry jam on Finn Crisp. I love this kind of thin crispbreads, because they contain a lot of fiber, no sketchy ingredients, and have an insanely long shelf life. They stay nice and crunchy for months, even if the package has already been opened. Those crisps will definitely come along with me on my next road trip.
