It’s All Greek To Me!

My four-day workweek helped ease me back into real life after vacation.  I was also assisted by copious amounts of sugar, coffee, and alcohol.  And thanks to the holiday, next week is short too, wahoo!

daytime eats

Cereal and milk coffee.

We got to sample some of the new desserts that are going to be sent up to patients on their birthdays.

And our cafeteria’s brownies are always to die for.

I don’t even really like brownies but these are terrifically fudgy.

Loaded veggie pizza.

Cafeteria-assembled Mediterranean salad.  Romaine and ranch topped with marinated cucumbers, taboule, chickpeas, and cheese; plus a falafel, pita chips, hummus, and a pickle.

Oatmeal with chocolate hazelnut butter and a side of fresh melon.

This was my first time trying steel cut oats and I really enjoyed them.

nighttime eats

Leftover pineapple turkey chili pulled down from the freezer.

Topped with pickled jalapeños and apricot stilton.  With buttered toast and a side of baby carrots and hummus.

I was majorly thanking my past self for saving some chili for a future quickie dinner.

Scrambled eggs made for another easy night.

Filled with broccoli, cauliflower, shredded chicken breast, and three cheese blend.

Mediterranean salad at home.  My cafeteria version was good but this was the better of the two; the crispy chickpeas took it to the next level.

Baby romaine with TJ’s feta dressing / roasted zucchini / hard-boiled egg / crispy chickpeas / taboule / and feta cheese.

This was an arbitrary assortment of foods but it worked.

Adam brought me home a giant salted caramel macaron from our favorite spot in Grand Central Station.  He was on an “away” rotation at NYU that ended yesterday so this was the last of the midweek Manhattan treats.

I paired a cocktail grapefruit with a sticky toffee beer that was only so-so.

And chocolates (nonpareils and dipped gummy bears) with a Dino S’mores Imperial Stout.

Never mind the fact that the label is a mouse in a dinosaur costume making a s’more (<– !!!!!), this stout is brewed with graham flour, fluff, vanilla, and cocoa nibs, and it tastes like a freaking toasted marshmallow.  ♥♥♥♥

P.S. Have you seen the Tatum on Tatum episode of Lip Sync Battle?  I laughed so hard I’m pretty sure I scared the neighbors!
