The first post after a longer period of silence is quite awkward, isn’t it? The past few weeks have been emotionally challenging, to put it nicely. In short, our financial situation had gone from dire to devastating. So I just wasn’t in the mood for blogging. Things are starting to look a little better now, so I’m cautiously optimistic that I will soon be able to make ends meet again.
Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff, aka food, okay?
This month’s theme for What I Ate Wednesday is to eat an extra cup of veggies.
Inspired by that theme I tried my best to add even more vegetables to my meals in the past few days. Here are some of the goodies I enjoyed over the weekend.
Saturday started with my favorite breakfast option, open-faced sandwiches. I had two slices of whole wheat toast topped with a fried egg on one, and butter and cucumber slices on the other. Seriously, you have to try that!
After a very random and unpictured cream cheese sandwich on the go for lunch, we made some spicy Indian-style curry, with chicken for the husband, and chickpeas for me. My curry already contained a lot of vegetables, but I was craving something green so I spontaneously added some steamed broccoli.
Sunday’s dinner was another spicy dish, chili sin carne. (Can you already tell that it’s been unusually cold around here? Sigh!) In order to reach my veggie quota of the day, I added red bell pepper, green beans, and button mushrooms.
This week I’m looking forward to starting Pilates again! I had to take a break for a few months, and I’ve really been missing my weekly class.
What are you looking forward to this week?
