i had fun cracking out my camera again over the weekend. i’m always shocked at the different between the dslr and the iphone when it’s been this long since i’ve used it. yes, i know that sounds insane. but i start thinking it’s not worth it to lug it around. and then i’m so pleased when i do.
here are some eats from recently. these actually have nothing to do with my last post, since there is no seafood, chicken, or anything else non-vegetarian. believe me, that’s still happening. but it’s like i said, i had fallen out of the camera habit.
saturday morning, i celebrated not being at work with a little pancake breakfast.
my college roommate is on a gluten-free, sugar-free, etc etc etc diet. but she found the most delicious gluten-free pancake recipe.
the original recipe is from here; then we swap out the sugar for a few drops of stevia. i made a 1/2 batch.
and then i pour on pancake syrup. it all evens out. (what is my camera focusing on in this picture – the coffee mug? anyway, you get the point.)
i continued lazy saturday with a trip to an antiques store with my parents.
it reminded me that i kind of hate antiques stores.
but then we got to the main event – lunch at one of the best little italian restaurants.
i got the gnocchi. yes, not so healthy in this sauce. but worth it. and i have been working harder to have less indulgent meals and more compromises with myself. (again, just not pictured.)
my papa with his meaty pasta dish. love how he prepares:
last night, i had a reasonably large lunch, so i ended up not wanting much at dinner time.
i sautéed some brussels sprouts in a little butter, then added two slices of soy bacon. topped with some mexican jack cheese when they were browned. strange but good.
and what compromise-filled, healthy eating post would be complete without this:
happy what i ate wednesday (tomorrow)!
i’m linking up with jenn at peas + crayons.
