Last weekend, my husband’s son G was staying with us. He is turning 17 in a few weeks, and is quite a typical teen boy. Luckily, he’s not a picky eater at all, he just needs huge portions. We can handle that.
So, here’s what we ate on Saturday.
Whenever we have guests over, we do a buffet-style breakfast. It’s simpler than it sounds. Everyone throws a slice of toast or bread into the toaster, and adds his/her toppings of choice at the table. Tofurky and pb&j for me, cream cheese and pepperoni for the teen boy.
The husband had prepared a huge pot of beef broth the day before, which he used to make noodle soup for lunch. It looked a little gross to me, so you’re getting a picture of my salad instead. It contained lamb’s lettuce, arugula, orange filets, carrots, mixed seeds, and garden cress. And I had a small bowl of rice for extra carb power.
My afternoon snack was a leftover Halloween clementine. Isn’t it cute! And it was also delicious. I need to buy more!
Dinner was an all-time favorite: homemade pizza! I made the dough myself, and it was quite a success. All you need is some elbow grease and patience. The men usually add sea food to their pizza, but this time they were happy with a pile of mozzarella. My version was topped with a ton of vegetables and some fresh arugula.
Bonus picture! This was Sunday’s lunch: homemade oven fries, curry ketchup sauce, tofu for me, and sausages for the men.
Have you ever heard of currywurst? It’s a very popular snack food in Germany, a little like hot dogs in the US. I personally prefer tofu, of course.
What was your favorite food as a teen?
