Guys, let’s all be honest. Are you sick of me and my food yet? I’m just opening the lines of communication so we can let it all hang out.
Because really – even though this is a blog about FOOD, I sometimes feel like all I do is show you food. As I’m about to do. So just a little check in to make sure you’re still into my never-a-skip-to-the-point-of-obsession WIAW posts. I hope this isn’t as awkward for you to read as it is for me to type 😉
I guess it could be worse – I could be posting nothing but selfies with strategic back lighting so you can’t see how tired I really am.
Sort of like the one you see above. Really, Drew should’ve told me I had FOOD IN MY HAIR while he watched me struggle to take this one stupid selfie. #selfiefail if there is one.
Anyway, let’s move on and pretend my food is exciting and not just another plantain-on-spinach parade with a side of my latest chocolate creation. Here we go!
WIAW – Are You Sick of Me (and my food) Yet?
I went just a little wild and combined sweet potatoes with green plantains for breakfast. Really, it was because I had both leftover and already chopped. It was Monday morning, okay? I like to be extra efficient if I can be on Monday mornings. Also featuring bacon and kale, because what’s new, really?
After breakfast I guess I got some food in my hair, and then drank coffee as you can see above 🙂
I had two of these brownie bites left in my freezer and ate both for a snack. I promise this recipe will go up over the next week or so – it’s really simple but so good to have these little bites on hand.
I told myself NOT to cook anything for the blog, but then I did. OOPS! It was easy and it worked out well, though. A simple sweet potato apple and kale hash (NO MEAT!) You see that other little egg peaking out in the background? Do you think I ate it? OF COURSE I DID! And because there was no meat in my lunch, I was hungry within two hours.
So I had to have a meaty snack – leftover hash (it gets put to good use) with Aidell’s chorizo cooked in a bit of coconut oil for extra crispiness. Crispy = love.
I’m thinking I must have drank something but I can’t remember what. It wasn’t kombucha, since I’m still waiting on a batch to brew, so I think it might have just been plain water. At least I hope I had something.
Diana set my plate for dinner with a rose from Sunday’s 5k – she’s thoughtful that way 🙂 We had plantain chips, chicken thighs cooked in Kerrygold butter with onion powder, smoked paprika and salt, and crispy roasted broccoli, emphasis on crispy once again.
I did not skip chocolate, but my fruit looked so pretty I had to take a picture alone. Truth is, I ate two small chunks of my unattractive but heavenly-tasting double fudge brownies that I REALLY need to make again. Here’s the unfortunate picture:
Seriously so good. Afterwards, I had about half a cup of herbal tea, and, once again, stayed up entirely too late doing blog stuff. I don’t feel like I actually accomplished anything though, as is the case when I attempt anything technical!
Are you a meat eater or just not that into it?
What foods NEED to be crispy when cooked?
What’s your go-to seasoning for roasting veggies? I need to experiment!
