The five best things I ate this week…
(1) Coffee boxes
These guys never let me down.
(2) This snack assortment
Baby carrots, seaweed salad, a Honey Belle pear, and a Pixie tangerine.
Bonus – I went to a catered seminar on physical assessments for malnutrition and they brought in surprisingly good salads from Smash Burger.
(3) Oatmeal bowls
Wild Beary flavor with maple almond butter on top and a Gold Nugget tangerine on the side.
The berries and cream oat bowl I made myself was better though.
Rolled oats, malted milk powder, chia seeds, freeze-dried strawberries, and dried blueberries. Plus sweetened sour cream on top.
(4) Green curry with bulgar
This was the best thing we ate all week.
Ground turkey sautéed with garlic, ginger, green onions, and probably something else that I’m forgetting // collard greens and celery cooked in rice vinegar with salt and a bit of sugar (sort of try for the pickled greens served at Pig and Khao) // green curry paste and light coconut milk // served on bulgar.
Now that I’ve gotten my hands on jarred crushed ginger again my food has gotten so much better.
(5) Asian-ish rice noodles
This would have been the second best thing we ate, but it desperately needed crushed peanuts on top.
Ground turkey that had been marinated over night with green onions, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, canola oil, fish sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and maple bourbon // baby bok choy, shitake mushrooms, and red bell pepper cooked with Sriracha, ginger, and a pinch of sugar // rice noodles cooked in chicken broth.
Marinating the meat in so many acidic things gave it an amazing texture, though I realize that it doesn’t look all that pretty. I have a bag of the chopped veggies prepped in the freezer so we can quickly make this meal again soon.
The worst thing about this week? The weather! Why is it so cold again??
