Good morning! Another night of wrestling with WordPress (has anyone else been having issues with it recently?) has caused this to be a dinner/breakfast post. Oh well, I’m just glad it’s working now!
You’re all going to think I’m completely gross and crazy, but I had some of this last night.
The day after Passover, when my friends would all complain about having to eat the gefilte fish, I would heartily agree but secretly really like it. My grandmother sent me home with a jar that she “forgot” to serve at our seder (I’m the only one who wanted it) so I decided to have it last night.
The smell was really off-putting and a lot stronger than I remembered. I tried to remedy this by serving a piece on a bed of romaine with red bell pepper, drowning the fish in rice wine vinegar, and serving the whole thing in a vinegar/sesame oil/sesame seed/chili flake dressing. Oh, and LOTS of German mustard. Seriously, I probably used half of the bottle .
I also had some leftover Inca or Aztec Corn Soup, which I served cold but with a lot of hot sauce.
My grandmother introduced me to Gelati-Da gelato a few weeks ago, and I snatched it up when I saw it at Target yesterday.
The cioccolata flavor is incredibly rich and creamy, considering it only has 2.5 g of fat. I had a bowl with warmed frozen berries and dark chocolate hot fudge.
I was still feeling snacky, so I had a Super-Charge Me cookie.
Yes, that made two cookies, one piece of banana bread, and fudge-covered ice cream in one day. But that’s okay! Today is a brand new day.
I started off with a small date shake:
- 1/4 block silken tofu
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- 2 dried dates, chopped
- 2 ice cubes
- pinch nutmeg
- squirt honey
Za-zing! (For some reason all my photos have a bluish hue this morning.)
I also had a slice of banana bread with peanut butter and blackberry preserves.
And some java! The newspaper is so good this morning… I love Sundays.
Well, time to work. In a little over a week I won’t have to end every post like that…
Have a great Sunday!
