meals at a glance

Lunch yesterday:
Whole-wheat pasta with a roasted eggplant-tomato sauce, sauteed kale with garlic and a few chili flakes, and white beans cooked with garlic and herbs.

Part of breakfast this morning:
I also had tea, orange juice, and scrambled eggs. (And drizzled a little pure maple syrup on my waffles, of course. The two waffles that didn't end up in the freezer, that is!)

Part of lunch today:
A smoothie of nothing more than frozen blueberries and orange juice.

Glad to see you back!

I LOVE eggplant in pasta like that... I wish I was eating at your house tonight!

I definitely am going to check out the books below.. I have the original printing of Diet For A Small Planet.. that was actually my mom's... it is very old.

Your waffles look great! Do you have a favorite waffle recipe?


theONLYtania said...

Yep.. I need to get a waffle maker.

Melody, I don't eat nearly enough eggplant, or other purple/blue things, for that matter. I'm trying to find ways to get that color into my diet! Other than blueberries and blackberries, I'm stumped, though.

Courtney, thanks! I just use the basic waffle recipe in the Betty Crocker cookbook, substituting at least half (if not all, which I did this time,) white-whole-wheat flour for the AP flour called for.

Tania, your comment made me laugh out loud! Can't wait to see pictures of your waffles!

Hey Catherine! Long time, no talk. Glad to see we are both blogging again.

I'm still pretty wrapped up until mid/late July. I swear I'm trying to clear up my calendar and stop scheduling myself crazy, but it's tough. I know we still need to do a dinner!!!

Food looks great. Love smoothies - I put spirulina in mine, so they usually end up almost black and no longer pretty like yours.

I'm with Tania on this one- I need a waffle maker! Yours look so good. And the smoothie too. And the pasta. Ok, I'm really hungry now...

put a waffle maker on my list, too! & the smoothie looks perfect to me, and Netflix served up "Donnie Darko" for us last night - gotta love them!
