This post is a continuation of the Monday Munchies series where I show everything I eat over the course of single day. These eats took place last Monday, when my appetite was less than 100% due to a cold (looks like I need to give my immune system a tune-up, what?).
Breakfast, 8:00 am:
In the smoothie: Greek yogurt, 1/2 banana, carrot juice, frozen berries, raw oats, chia seeds, spinach, water. Topped with brown Rice Krispies.
Lunch, 12:00 pm:
Eggless egg salad, cherry tomatoes, blanched hericot verts tossed with a little herb butter, whole grain roll. Served with skim milk. I baked the rolls in a circle in the style of delicious crusty rolls we bought in Switzerland.
Snack, 3:30 pm:
We brought back an aged Gruyère from Switzerland that I haven’t seen here in the States. Apparently I was so excited to try it, I forgot to take a picture of the actual snack. I enjoyed a few slices with whole grain crackers.
Dinner, 6:30 pm:
Because I had a cold, I didn’t feel like eating dinner. However, when Peter made this flavorful broth with noodles, mushrooms, spinach, and special dumplings, I couldn’t resist eating about two-thirds of my meal. The special dumplings recipe is a secret; we got it from a friend who owns a restaurant. They’re one of the most popular items on the restaurant’s menu.
Served with skim milk and a side of Mice and Mystics.
You know a board game is serious when the dice look like this. And yes, that is a wedge of cheese on the bottom die.
Peter asked me to get this game the last time I was in Colorado from a board game shop in Denver. Let me set the scene for you: Note innocent, happy Jessie driving home from the airport with her dad and expecting a quick side trip to pick up the board game. As we approached the board game shop, we noticed the area around us gradually deteriorating. The shop itself looked like an abandoned garage in the middle of some deal gone bad. I kept think Peter must have gotten the address wrong. But, no.
Eventually, I walked out of the board game store with Mice and Mystics clutched in my sweaty hands and a sense of lucky escape. And now I will forever associate this game with creepy warehouses.
While playing M&M after dinner, I savored a square of Cailler dark chocolate from Switzerland.
Did I mention we brought chocolate back from Switzerland? Because we did.
Enjoy your week, dear reader!
