31 Days, Day 8
Breakfast (7:30 a.m.): Two mashed Black bean whole wheat tortilla roll-ups.
Lunch (2:30 p.m.): Veggie broth with roasted sweet potatoes, carrots, onion, tofu, red cabbage, broccoli, and general spices (black pepper, cumin, cinnamon, garlic powder, oregano).
Dinner (6:00 p.m.): Whole wheat tortilla, chunky peanut butter, and a banana.
Not a very eventful day. Just drove back from Midland after the disconnect. Football isn't holding my attention too much, so I am watching bad SyFy tv. I did multitask while roasting the sweet potatoes, I roasted some red potatoes too and made [un-]refried pintos (mashed pintos with a bit of salsa added for moisture) for this week's breakfasts, and a pot of brown rice for lunches.
Still have several of Dr. McD's quick soups left so they will probably be dinner and some whole wheat gnocchi and marinara which I need to finish. I should be good ont he grocery front without leaving too much to spoil while I am in Georgia.
I was excited to find a new source of TVP (texture vegetable protein) which is a good meat substitute. I like to just rehydrate with some water and add some taco seasoning to make TVP tacos. Want to try to do some faux burgers one of these days when I get back. Since my (x)wife and kids are coming here for most of November, she and I are trying to coordinate a Thanksgiving meal that will work for everyone. We have seen a few things which sounded good. Hope we can find them again and find what is needed to prepare them.
One of these days, I hope to find or create a couple interesting recipes which I can share with others. I don't want to just live off the works of others...lol.
