Hey there! I hope all of my East Coast (US) readers are keeping warm! Long Island didn’t get hit as badly with snow as predicted, but getting to and from work on Friday was definitely pretty insane.
Here’s some of what I ate when I wasn’t shivering…
Lunch packed for work on Friday.
Aaaaaand a different iced latte from Starbucks that I didn’t photograph because it was getting ridiculous. Yes, I recently became extra in love with coffee. No, I won’t switch from iced no matter how cold it gets.
A delicious dinner on Friday night.
I made “miso stoup” for the first time and was thrilled with the results. Not totally traditional, but with ingredients we had on hand. And extra “chunky” because it was our whole meal and not just a side.
- 3 cups chicken broth (you could totally use veggie broth if you want to keep things vegetarian)
- 3 heaping Tbsp miso paste
- 2. 5 oz firm tofu, cubed
- 1/2 cup sliced green onions
- 1 pint sliced shiitake mushrooms
- .6 oz roasted seaweed, crumbled
- Bring broth to a simmer in a medium pot over medium-high heat.
- Add miso to broth and whisk until no lumps remain.
- Add remaining ingredients to pan and simmer an additional 3 – 5 minutes.
Not so delicious fondue for dinner on Saturday night.
Both were fairly meh. The bread cubes were terrible and we only got two each of the other dippers so if you liked something you couldn’t even try it again because then the other person didn’t get any. We cashed in a Groupon to Simply Fondue and even with the $ off it was still pretty darn expensive. Boo.
Random but good things include: A bowl of Nature’s Path Heritage Flakes with blackberries and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
Yesterday we did a late, great brunch. My guava mimosa was quite tasty.
We were visiting friends in Williamsburg and they took us to Simple. We all had wonderful meals.
I got the Vegetable Burger – Sautéed spinach, mushroom, zucchini, pepper, onion, garlic. It was more of a pile of veggies than a burger, particularly once I ordered it sans bun. It was also delicious, especially when topped with Danish blue cheese. And the fries on the side were nice and crispy!
