No long preamble this week I promise. Straight into the WIAW party. As usual, a huge thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the party. Also this week I'm going to this cute little questionaire I took from Jessie where after each picture I post some answers to some questions about different meals in the day.
These is what I ate this Sunday.
Breakfast was a stacked oatmeal cake - pretty much baked oatmeal with strawberries topped with Chobani strawberry yoghurt (idea from Everything Oat). Yes, Chobani! It is finally being sold in QLD! I took advantage of the 5 for 5 bucks sale, that's for sure.It is definitely worth the hype. If you live in Australia, go buy some now. I totally recommend it.
Favorite breakfast as a child?
Coco-pops. Or hashbrowns. Totally a tie here. Both were 'special breakfast' foods.
Coffee or Juice?
I don’t drink coffee at all. So juice - but not at breakfast. Mostly on special occasions, or when it's freshly squeezed juice from the trees at home.
The one food you eat most often at breakfast?
Oats - hot or cold. Best ever.
Lunch was a brown rice salad with salmon, zucchini and spinach.
And one of these. Recipe will be up soon. I was taste testing.
Sandwiches are generally
considered a “lunch food.” If you had to choose between a grilled cheese
and a peanut butter and jelly, which would you pick?
Oh, probably a grilled cheese. I actually don't really do peanut butter and jam together on sandwiches. And you can add anything to a grilled cheese - like tuna! That would be a great lunch sandwich.
You can only put four
ingredients in your salad (not including greens); what do you throw in
the mix? Additionally, which greens and dressing do you pick?
I would choose tomato, cheese (any kind, I looove cheese), salmon/tuna/grilled chicken (but usually one of the fish) and avocado. I use spinach pretty much exclusively - I don't really like lettuce. And I don't do dressing - I find it gross. If anything, I have a little bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, but not much.
One food you can’t live without at lunch?
Probably yoghurt or a piece of fruit. I find I can't finish lunch or dinner on a savory note. I need a small sweet kick - even if it is a couple of strawberries dipped in yoghurt or a spoonful of yoghurt, or a banana with PB.
I had this fabulous snack after the gym today (another 5km on the treadmill, and ankles didn't hurt) - wholemeal english muffin with peanut butter, honey, banana and LSA.
For dinner I made crumbed and baked chicken, topped with spinach and a tomato and onion salad. On the side I made pan-fried mushrooms, baked sweet potato and baked carrot.
It’s the end of the day.
You’re tired, hungry, and your fridge is empty. If a fast food (from a
chain) is your only option, where do you go and what do you order?
Probably subway. Or grill'd. Or Sushi Train. Haha, I suppose they're the 'better' fast food chains. Do they count?
TV/computer on or off while you’re eating?
We don't have a table. Awkward for a food blogger. So yes, always TV or computer.
The one food you eat most often at dinner?
Oh, probably potato. I'm trying to cut down on it, but usually potato or sweet potato. This is because it goes with pretty much everything - fish, chicken and meat - and I alternate eating those foods.
I was so full by this time, but like I said, I can't not eat something sweet. So I had a few spoonfuls of yoghurt. Obviously no picture.
Choose between these two American desserts: cheesecake or apple pie?
I suppose apple pie - cheesecake is really rich and not my kind of thing. I don't really like 'pie' per se, like sweet, really sugary pies. I love apple desserts though, so if the pie crust wasn't too sugary, I would totally go for apple pie.
Choose between these two foreign desserts: tiramisu (Italy) or flan (Spain)?
I don't think I've ever had either - and if I had, it's only been a bite or two because I don't really like them. I always chose other desserts when I'm out - usually apple crumble, sticky date pudding or some kind of dark chocolate thing.
Ice cream: cone or cup?
I don't eat ice cream, because I don't like it, but whenver I tried to eat it as a child, I went for the cone.
And now I'm off to check out all of this week's WIAW's. Hope you are all having a fantastic week.
