Monday Munchies, Part 24: The Forgotten Day

This post is a continuation of the Monday Munchies series where I show everything I eat over the course of single day. Why did I title this post “the forgotten day”? Because I have no idea which day this is. I found the pictures on my camera and POOF! here we are.

So far my plan to pay more attention to, well, anything has disappeared faster than Maddie when she hears me pick up the nail clippers.

Breakfast at some indeterminate time, but probably between 7 and 8 am because that’s when I usually break the nightly fast because I’m a dietitian – duh – and I know eating at similar times helps me prevent overeating and just makes me feel danged better in general and oh my gracious can this not-quite-sentence get any longer?:


Bircher museli with 1/2 banana, raspberries and chia seeds. Served with coffee and a little skim milk.

Raspberries, how I adore thee,
in my Bircher muesli.


Lunch, noonish:

As on this day, Peter and I split a plate of tomato, mozzarella and basil. We’re growing three kinds of basil – can you spot them all?


Leftover steamed broccoli topped with way too much hot sauce. The sauce was made by Peter’s brother, Dave (of “Death Sauce” fame).


I also tried a few bites of a locally-made hot dog:


Sorry. There’s literally no way to make a hot dog look attractive.

Post lunch peach:


Dinner, what?:


This was the day we ate the farro salad for which I posted a recipe last week. Served with local tenderloin over sauteed kale.


To end: homemade peach ice cream.


Q: How was your weekend? I watched the 2004 version of Phantom of the Opera over the weekend, and I thought it was … okay.  A bit creepy. That hasn’t stopped me from singing “Think of Me” repeatedly, which must be nearly as annoying as when I used to sing The Sound of Music songs over and over. Also, I’m firmly in the alto range, which, if you know anything about this Phantom of the Opera song, means a tragedy every time I open my mouth.

P.S. Bonus pic! I did a demo of grilled fruit over Greek yogurt during my open hours at Strawberry Fields. Despite the drizzly weather, customers turned out to enjoy the naturally sweet treat. I hope some of them will try grilling fruit on July 4th!

  1. Because I’m a dietitian….duh! haha, you’re hilarious.
    Three types of basil, really?? I didn’t even know three types existed. Opps.
    I demoed grilled peaches and apricots over a ricotta and greek yogurt puree last month, huge hit! I hope yours was too. Yum, I love grilled fruit.

    1. Yay! Let me know how it goes 🙂

    1. Somehow I know you’d be growing the purple kind – you always have such an awesome crop of basil! 🙂

  2. Hi Jessie!
    Your breakfast looks amazing.. it’s actually quite similar to what I eat (yogurt, flaxseed, 1/2 banana, blueberries, a dash of honey & cinnamon). I’ve never tried chia seeds, but they will be making their way onto my grocery list in the near future 🙂
    That homemade ice cream looks pretty top notch! I’m jealous because I have two left hands when it comes to making ice cream and it usually ends up a disaster.

    1. Well, I have my ice cream maker to thank for the ice cream (and not my skill, I assure you 😉 ). Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Singing songs from fine musicals such as Phantom of the Opera while going about one’s daily business is fantabulous 🙂

    I’m really loving raspberries right now, and peaches, and I have never ever had peach ice cream! Sounds delicious!

    I didn’t know there were multiple varieties of basil…ignorance oh botanical ignorance. Always learning new things from your posts! 🙂

  4. I want a scoop of that peach ice cream and a squirt of that homemade hot sauce! But probably not together. 😛
