Crazy Foodie

November 2, 2010

I feel so much better knowing I’m not the only one who has vactation eating anxiety.

And now if you could all reassure me that I’m also not the only one who goes to such far lengths for good looking blog pictures.  Allow me to explain.  Yesterday I brought a ball jar, half a container of cottage cheese and pomegranate seeds to work then quickly stepped out of the library to assemble my cc and pom in a jar, then proceeded to photograph my creation in front of the many students entering and exiting the library.

Normal, right?

Don’t answer that.

I swear those leaves were pretty much already set up on the table like that…

Back in the day I used to eat cottage cheese mixed with strawberries almost every morning.  It may sound weird, but I assure you the flavors pair extremely well together.  Unfortuately I’m unwilling to pay $6 for the small container of strawberries, especially since they’d only last a day around me.

This breakfast was almost as good but a heck of a lot cheaper!

Speaking of cheap, how much am I loving reasonable avocado prices lately?  SO MUCH.

Upon returning home from the airport on Sunday I realized I had absolutely nothing at home to bring for lunch the next day so we made a quick grocery store stop and picked up avocado, hummus and tomato then threw it all together in a wrap.

My lunch was smiling at me.

And I was smiling back once I took the first bite!

Oh yum 🙂

Roma tomatoes are quite delicious.  By the way during an intense game of Scene It Squabble (aka males vs. females) a couple weekends ago a question came up that had a list of words and you had to answer what they had in common.  Beefsteak, plum, brandywine… I will never forgive myself for not being the first to yell out “types of tomatoes!!”

Half a honeycrisp on the side.

The weather was B-E-A-utiful yesterday.  Blue skies and fall trees.

I may or may not have gone hog wild on the bulk aisle in WF after school.  And I may or may not have also run into none other than my sister while there.  Too funny!

I stopped home for a quick snack before heading off to yet another grocery store.

According to my mom this looks like it has beef in it.  I assure you it didn’t and that it was only plain Brown Cow yogurt with a new granola I bought (that I can’t remember the name of but it’s cinnamon-y, not too sweet and ever so slightly soft) and loved and a spoonful of pumpkin butter.

I mixed these together and it was nothing short of awesome.

After I got back from the store I got my lift on then headed over to the Dorsey household for Bean O’Clock!

Disclaimer requested by Mama Dorsey:

**Although it appears that every meal eaten in the Dorsey household consists of food that is all the same color (and the same color as the table for that matter) I assure you it’s not and that it only appears so because of really bad kitchen lighting.  My apologies.**

Oh yes, these were good and I definitely had to go back for a little more.

Pie was later consumed.

I’m happy to report that I actually went to bed early and got a good 9+ hours of sleep so I’m feeling great today!

Hope you are too 😀
