For breakfast I finally cooked up some more of those great potatoes from my garden. I chopped them small and cooked then in oil with mushrooms and sweet peppers. Unfortunately, my wrist got splattered with oil and it's horribly painful. There's a reason they tell you to test a bottle on your wrist, it's very sensitive. I topped my breakfast creation with chopped up baby cherry tomatoes and nutritional yeast.
Lunch was just grazing... I made an ear of corn, ate a nectarine, then picked and ate raspberries and snow peas from the garden. Lazy afternoon. I also baked chocolate raspberry muffins with some of those raspberries. I used the recipe from Vegan Brunch.
I picked up my CSA box today too, and got a huge bag of basil, so homemade pesto was in order. I toasted some almonds and pureed them with the olive oil, garlic, and basil. Then I zested a lemon and added the juice as well. I froze half the pesto and will use the rest over the next few days. It should keep for a while.
For dinner I made quinoa and added the pesto and nutritonal yeast to make it cheesy good. I steamed an artichoke as well, which the baby enjoyed even more than the quinoa. I'm still working through those tomatoes, so they topped my cheesy pesto quinoa.
I splurged after a run on my elliptical tonight and had two muffins because they were so tasty. I froze most of the rest so I won't eat them all with the excuse, "I don't want them to go bad." I've eaten many cupcakes for that reason...
While the baby and I were having some pre-dinner wading and splashing at the lake by our house I heard someone talking about ordering Chinese food for dinner. I have some great thick soba noodles from Costco in the fridge that popped into my mind immediately. I don't want to alarm anyone, but tomorrow morning I'll be having a stir-fry. Just so you are prepared when you see "stir fry" as the first meal. It's crazy, but I can't justify eating white flour noodles at night. I'm planning on going on a good hike tomorrow though, and if I eat them before the hike I figure it's okay.
