Toy Story 3
Late post tonight (well late for this old timer!) because I was just out at the picture show. Husband and I saw Toy Store 3. It was very sweet and a lot of fun. I think it’s received like 100% positive reviews from critics, and I can see why! A really nice conclusion to the trilogy.
But enough about something that isn’t related to what I eat 😉
For lunch today, I wasn’t sure what to have, so I took some random components to create something new.
A slice of bread, a peach, a tomato, 1/2 an avocado, and a hard-boiled egg
Put it all together, and what do you get?
I toasted the bread and placed the sliced avocado on first, then the sliced tomato, and finally the sliced egg. I also sliced up the peach. There was a lot of slicing involved.
Eggs require black pepper. This is fact.
I got hungry about 1.5 hours later, so I made a Death Monster! I’ve decided that this combination isn’t my favourite. It really needs a banana or something to spruce it up. Plus it looks like death!
- 1 1/4 cup soymilk
- 1 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1 giant handful of baby spinach
About an hour later, I was still hungry! So I ate this leftover pancake. I didn’t add anything to it. Just ate it with my hands, like a barbarian!
(Did barbarians have access to pancakes?)
When not eating, I spent the afternoon reading and relaxing. By the time it came time to prepare dinner, I was ready to get my hands dirty. Ever since seeing the recipe for Vegan Walnut Lentil Loaf on Eat Live Run, I have been wanting to try it. With cooking time, it takes over an hour to prepare, which is a bit long for a work night. Today was the perfect day! Even better, I had all the ingredients except the celery on hand. I love it when that happens.
I knew this recipe had promise when it called for toasted walnuts
This looks unappetizing, but wait!
Served with steamed asparagus and half a baked sweet potato
My only complaint is that it didn’t stay firm when I sliced and served it. When I went back for seconds (because you know I did!), it was much firmer. I think letting it sit for 5 to 10 minutes once out of the oven would have helped. This recommendation is for people who actually have patience. I am not familiar with this term when it comes to eating dinner.
Admittedly, it doesn’t look all that great. But I loved it! Even better, my meat-loving husband loved it too. One for the recipe book!
We left for the movies around 7:00 pm, and I decided to pack us some snacks. I’ve never really purchased concession snacks before because they are so expensive, but I thought it would be fun to munch on something during the movie. I packed us some red, seedless grapes and two slices of Strawberry Spice Loaf.
I guess I am more of a snacker than my husband because I ate ALL of the grapes and 2 of the 4 pieces of loaf. How can one resist a snack when watching a movie? I just don’t get it.
Today was just what I needed. Every so often, I crave a day of no obligations. Sometimes, even social events can feel a bit like work to me, especially since most of my loved ones live so far away so it’s a bit of a drive. But today was just great. Good food, lots of relaxing time, a fun movie, and lentil loaf. What more can a girl ask for? Tomorrow, I hope to have more of the same!
