Hey ya’ll! I have finally decided to come back from my period of rest and dealing with complicated things to bring you a wonderful What I Ate Wednesday post. After reading a variety of books like the China Study, I have decided that I’m going to eat vegetarian for 4 days of the week out of 7. Another reason is because my future roommate is a vegan and I can’t wait to enjoy some amazing meals with her. Eventually I may go full veggie, but lets be honest with ourselves I really do love me some good pieces of meat. Mainly healthier cuts of meat like lean turkey, chicken (not so much anymore after watching Food Inc a million times, but still like it), and I love fish. Maybe I’ll go the pescatarian route. We shall see, but in the mean time I want to give a big thanks to Jenn from Peas and Crayons for hosting this awesome day. Seriously it brought me out of my sad funk.
Get this party stared on a Thursday morning….yes I rewrite songs.
I have no idea what my images are being stupid right now, but for some reason my breakfast wants to be sideways. For my first day as a vegetarian, I had cinnamon burst cheerios, banana slices, blueberries, and almond milk. I actually was going to have oatmeal, but I woke up so late that I did not have time to prepare it to my high standards. I was going to be late to class, so I opened my cupboard and was like oh thank god I bought some cereal the other day. Good buy for once at the grocery store (unlike the bag of chocolate chips and marshmallows that I decided I needed).
Okay, so I guess all my photos will be crooked. Oh well. That is me. For lunch I decided that I wanted some brunch. Actually I was at my mom’s for an infusion treatment that I had to go to later in the day, so all she really had to eat was eggs. I made an egg white omelet with tons of veggies. It had mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and peppers. Yummmy. Oh and obviously cheese because truth be told cheese is the best food in the entire world (besides candy). The omelet was tasty and very filling, so my stomach survived my 2 and a half hour infusion treatment. Success.
For dinner, I picked up my younger brother and a friend of mine and then we met another one of my friends at this amazing Thai restaurant in Austin called Titayas. Isn’t the name fab? I love making jokes about how I’m going to be getting some titties or how I want tits. They should really just change their name to Tits. Yes, I have the humor of a 13 year old boy. Anyways, after waiting for 30 minutes for a table, we sat down and ordered appetizers. My brother and I split an order of mushrooms. Best choice. They were lightly battered and topped with a sweety and spicy thai sauce. It was a great combination with the simple taste of mushrooms.
For my entree, I decided on yellow curry with tofu. I’m going to be honest here and tell you that I have been craving curry and tofu for weeks now, so I actually already knew what I was going to order before we even got there. It was a good choice because the curry was more sweet and not as spicy as expecting. I love spicy things, but curry can be way too spicy and make you sweat. My brother for example. He ordered a green curry and holy heck it was so spicy. My eyes watered when I sampled it and he was sweating to death in the restaurant. That was actually funny though. He makes me laugh. My two friends both ordered chicken pad thai without bean sprouts. It was cute because they are actually roommates and I was like no wonder they get along so well, they like the same things. It was a great meal with good company.
Cake balls are the best dessert to have after an amazing day. Really though. These especially. I had a cake ball at Starbucks over break that was peppermint brownie. So good. I decided that I could recreate this (especially with my new pan) and not have to shell out a ridic amount of money for one stupid cake ball. Another point for Lindsay. They turned out so good. I made a batch of brownies and let them undercook a little, so they were super gooey. I rolled them into balls and stuck lollipop sticks into them then placed them in the freezer for a little while. I then rolled them in melted white chocolate bark and then quickly sprinkled them with crushed peppermints. These were a big success. Everyone loves them. I’m going to have to start creating crazy cake balls.
I’m going to end the day with a laugh. I saw this shirt at Walmart in Missouri while I was there for my grandpa’s funeral service. In such a dark time, this shirt brought some joy to my life, so hopefully it will make ya’ll laugh. Surprise. I bought one. It is green with a huge cat’s face on it. I wear it around my apartment. It is pretty epic, not gonna lie.
Hope everyone has a great day!
