So many tasty things went into my mouth today, and the ironic thing is, that this is me trying very hard to eat healthy, to get ready for summer by watching the foods I consume.
Breakfast: Green Curry Soup. Yeah that’s right, green curry soup. No it was not leftovers, I purposefully cooked that this morning for no other reason than that is what I wanted. I like soup for breakfast, its hot and satisfying. If you have stock on hand, which I do because I work in a commercial kitchen and there is always no less than 12 quarts lying about, and you keep it veg (or use quick cooking meats like chicken and/or bacon), the time commitment is minimal. Chop some veg, sauté in butter, and the spice, the stock, coconut, cook until the potatoes are done, about 20 min. In that time you make a list, set up you station, then you are ready to sip down as much soup as you like while starting out the day.
Lunch: Family style served at the restaurant for the staff. Today’s lunch included kale salad with poblano buttermilk dressing, radishes and pumpkin seeds, tomato soup, mashed potatoes and chicken with gravy.
Dinner: a late night dinner that used many leftover ingredients in the fridge. Arugula salad with strawberries (going bad, mind as well mince them up) with olives and crushed cashews, dressed in fresh lemon and olive oil. Pan fried flounder (in the freezer, wild caught from Aldi) topped with a sauce made from onion, cumin, tomatoes, mushrooms, and coconut cream.
Today was a good day. Its times like this that I look forward to tomorrow, and all the deliciousness it holds.
