Day 3, sort of - baked pork chops and peach raspberry kuchen! Better pictures this time because my mother's cell phone was not purchased in 2006, unlike other people I could mention (me).

FOOOOOOOD )

Reasons I abandoned my recipe meme: because I've been subsisting on coffee and spearmint gum for the past two weeks. I am significantly less happy with the lack of good food in my life but I've also lost like five pounds. I don't think that's a good thing, though.

I also have signed up for, let's see. 3 Teen Wolf exchanges. With the amount of writing I've been producing lately I don't think I'll have any trouble but still. Jesus Christ.

Day 2! Raspberry bok choi salad with a sandwich wrap.

Bok choi (best salad green ever), purple grapes, uncooked green beans, thyme, rosemary, dill, celery, mushrooms & light raspberry vinagrette. The kind I used is like - raspberry acai, and it's more like a sauce than a dressing, but whatever.

Then sandwich wrap with black forest ham, Wisconsin havarti herb (havarrrrrrti) and chipotle mayo in a blue corn & flaxseed tortilla. The chips are herb & parmesean Sun Chips. Dessert was sliced cara cara oranges dusted with sugar.

Pics or it didn't happen )

Goddamn, you guys, goddamn.

The 30 Days of Lunch Meme! From nobody, because I just made this up.

For the next month, eat something every day that is delicious and makes you happy. Are you dieting? Fuck dieting. Life is short and food is life, so chow it down and throw it up in order to entice others to join you in your gastronomical passion party.

(Note: Interpret "lunch" as loosely as you want because nobody wants to see a picture of the can of Mountain Dew and Kudos bar that you wolfed down on lunch break last Thursday. No offense, but we have our own shame.)

Day One! Reuben sandwich, the "Meagan and her mom at 3 AM" version.

Pics or it didn't happen. )

Grill marble rye bread spread with butter (just a little) with Thousand Island dressing and Havarti cheese (because we have history with Swiss and as such it is persona non grata 'round these here parts). Grill - separately - turkey pastrami and sauerkraut (just enough to scorch it and get it hot), pile all together and serve with baked Ruffles. Party hard.

Turkey pastrami is a lot milder than regular pastrami or corned beef, and so it makes it so you can taste everything better, I think. It's also juicier, which makes the sandwich messier, but if you don't get messy eating a Reuben you're doing it wrong. Anyway I like turkey pastrami a lot better, it's not nearly as overpowering, especially paired with the kraut.

Fun fact: when I was a young'un I had this friend Leah who loved these, and we tried for years to figure out how to bring them with us successfully on car trips. We never quite figured it out, but since we were driving around Iowa and Nebraska we found them at every diner we stopped at, natch.

I'm getting pretty ace at this cooking good food thing. Check it out, cuz I'm excited!

Roasted Zucchini Mint Salad and Chocolate Orange Cloud Cake )

I made all of it with spaghetti carbonara and BAM! Everyone loved me. Because this is delicious, and also maybe because I left the pancetta fat in the sauce when I made the spaghetti. Either one. Fuck dieting.
