More Siggi’s for me
A friend of hubby’s has been reading my blog, writing me emails, and making fun of me (all in good spirit!). Today he sent me the following picture and caption:
“How do you eat this crap?”
My first food blog 🙂
Pretty classic, eh? I LOL’d.
I needed that LOL-ing because work was busy! Check out the background of snack #1: a Chocolate Peppermint Lunabar. The bar was “yum” but the amount of work on my desk was not.
By snack #2 at exactly 3:36 pm, my desk was cleared off a bit. Phew!
Husband is seeing a movie tonight with his brother, so I was on my own for dinner. I decided to take the frugal route and use up something that has been living in my freezer for months now: pierogies! We used to eat these all the time, but husband has recently notified me that he’s not a fan. That leaves the mission of Operation: Get Rid of the Pierogies up to me.
I pan-seared them (sounds better than fried!) in olive oil with onions, red pepper and mushrooms and had them with steamed frozen veggie mix. What would we do without freezers? (Eat fresh food, I am guessing)
I had six pierogies and was going to dip them in sour cream, but only ended up using about a 1/3rd of the sour cream pictured here. These were pretty cheesy pierogies and didn’t really need any help from its fatty, dairy friend 😉
For dessert, I broke out a Siggi’s, but not just any Siggi’s. A Siggi’s that was partially consumed by husband this morning until he realized that he hates Siggi’s. He says they are too bitter and thick for him. SAY IT AIN’T SO. First pierogies, now Siggi’s. It’s like I don’t even know who he is anymore.
But you know what this means — more Siggi’s for me!
I had half of a blueberry-flavoured one.
Such a beautiful colour, but honestly? Not such a fan of the blueberry. I couldn’t really even taste blueberry. I guess with these being all-natural, the flavouring isn’t very strong…or detectable. I am holding out hope for the vanilla. I love vanilla yogurt. Don’t fail me now, my Icelandic friend.
I also had some organic teddy bear cookies! I bought these on sale a couple of weeks ago.
19 cookies for 140 calories. I am a fan of any serving size that lets me eat 19 cookies.
And a cup of coffee with Oprah Winfrey!
I broke out of my usual routine and didn’t buy any coffee while at work today. I KNOW. I am reading The Complete Tightwad Gazette and it is inspiring me to cut down on consumption like that. Of course, I have felt this way before. Give me three days, and I will be back to my old habits. But as of now, no more fancy coffee!
