I read the rest of the post and thought it would be interesting (but I could be very wrong) to list all the things i currently eat, 3 years later, to see if my habits and tastes have changed much. I guess we'll have to take into account the seasonal factor. Let us begin, and keep that other post open to refer to, will you?
Things I might have for breakfast:
These days I like some plain yogurt, unsweetened fancy pants granola from the ye olde bagel shoppe down the road, with some honey and maybe some berries. Granola is one of those things i looove homemade. Glad i can now buy some pretty good stuff that i'm pretty sure is homemade somewhat locally. No, i will never make it myself. Don't be crazy.
yogurt drink--regular or greek style if i'm feeling bold and need an extra pick-me-up.
but guess what? I never eat other yogurts anymore--the individual ones. Weird eh? What happened? I guess the drinkable yogurt is what happened. Revolutionary! (and pretty old news)
Cereal-- perhaps some cheerios (with honey, of course) or frosted mini wheats.
scrambled eggs--not as common
Things I might have for lunch:
I usually eat scraps for lunch. Maybe some hummus and veggies, a slice of lunchmeat, or maybe a pb&j on round sandwich thins.
The problem with the jam is that i only like one specific kind. It is black raspberry made by Beth's Farm somewhere in New Jersey and by a sizable margin, ranks superior to all other jams. And each jar costs a whopping $8 and i can only get it at the Union Square farmers market. So you can imagine the tragedy when I brought home 2 jars a couple of months ago and one fell and shattered and jammy glass went everywhere. It was a gigantor mess, much like the time the full jar of applesauce crashed to the floor, but the loss of the jam still looms in our house and hearts. Anyway, i ran out of my one jar the other day so we will eat NO jam until i can get back to the market.
Also: cheese & fruit, the steady and true love of my life.
Things I eat for dinner:
Salad, usually with some chicken, cucumbers, maybe some grape tomatoes, pears or apples, goat cheese (bleu is out--i don't know why), maybe some avocado if we're lucky. Avocados bring me some aggravation, much like bananas. There's pressure to eat it. It's always shouting at me, "It's now or never!!" Stresses me out. So i eat them all in one sitting or they all go bad and i shake my fist and say, "you won this round, avocados..." even though in the end, we're all losers, for they never fulfilled their destiny.
Frozen Indian from Trader Joe's. Don't forget the frozen naan. YES.
Rice and beans, in a burrita bowl or tortilla
From the takeout menu:
1. Mexican from Maya Taqueria
2. Fish from Fish 'n Sip. So good. I'll get a tuna melt or tilapia. Or a salad that doesn't have any fish but has shaved sweet potato skins and artichokes. so good.
3. Thai from Song--best Thai ever and origin of my Thai food testimony.
But lately, what I want to eat most of the time are just provisions. Maybe it's the summertime, maybe it's my laziness. Or maybe it's that i like to say "provisions" that makes me love provisions; I really can't say. But here's my favorite dinner:
A platter. On it are:
slices of cheese, preferably havarti
avocado (again, if we're lucky)
cucumbers or sugar snap peas or peppers
apple or pear, maybe grapes
and my favorite crackers in all the land, the cracker that reigns supreme above all other crackers. Trader Joe's 12-grain mini crackers. Click here. It's round, it has 12 grains, it's got this sweet'ish flavor but it isn't too much (it doesn't make me ill) and it's mini. In essence, the perfect cracker.
What I eat for dessert:
Basically what i eat for dessert is either ice cream or ice cream. It's a must in our house these days. Just about every night. Sean
As a bonus, the other night I gathered with friends to sit around a table and do a reading of 12 Angry Men. There were 6 of us and we each had 2 characters. YES. Dream realized. Anyway, we all brought some snackies and "provisions" you might say, and here's what I stuffed into my gullet that night:
2 mini candy bars
pickle-flavored potato chips
1 macaroon that weighed about 1 lb.
2 slices of strawberry cake
1 sour watermelon
It was a good night.
And that's what I eat.
