May 18, 2012 - Excuses
As far as food goes as of late, I don't always have lots of time to cook so eggs and toast are a staple of my diet (a little Sriracha or cayenne paper usually finds its way into this pairing). I have a habit of cooking a lot of food on Sunday and saving the leftovers for lunches throughout the week. As a young bachelor that suits me fine. The game of it is coming up with something exciting, tasty, healthy, and keeps well every week. This week I bought some boneless, skinless chicken breasts from the butcher and let them marinate in a rub of dried herbs, smoked paprika, sesame seeds, and a bit of dried lavender (which was interesting) for a few hours and then baked them along side rustic cubes of sweet potato. Then I made a leafy green salad with cucumbers, red bell pepper, Roma tomatoes, and a few seeded jalepeños for fun. Personally I'm working on a goal of getting in shape so that's a standard meal plan for me. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I believe in indulgence but in relaxed moderation. I'd be just as happy to spend a whole afternoon putting a cheesy, meaty lasagne together from scratch and picking away at that throughout the week. But those kinds of projects are better suited for when cooking for a group for one night. I do order take out every now and then, guilty as charged. In fact just this evening I treated myself to a stew chicken roti from the Jamaican place around the corner from my apartment on the way home from work. It was delicious though, and well worth it.
Well, that's all I have for now. Stay tuned for more!
