My favorite snack at the moment!

Favorite snack
365 branch multi-seed flatbread crackers with brillat savarin and chopped olive tapenade.

Omg, I love these! I buy everything at Whole Foods and put everything together whenever I need a little snack (usually when watching tv). Every bite is packed with tons of flavor and it incorporates one of my favorite cheeses. The brillat savarin is soft and spreadable so this snack is super easy to assemble. Noms!

Risotto with chicken sausage, tomatoes, and roasted vegetables

Project 365: Day 5

I really should stop going out on a work night, ouch! Met Hubbs and Shumster out for drinks last night and of course all the usuals were out too. Needless to say, I stayed out later than I should have and ended up eating cheap, greasy Chinese take out. Not good. What is good is that Hubbs might join the Ireland trip, yay!

Risotto with chicken sausage

Arborio rice, organic chicken sausage, canned tomatoes, organic chicken broth, organic brussels sprouts, organic mushrooms, organic garlic, organic onions, organic butter, brillat savarin, olive oil, salt and pepper.

I love risotto because I can just whip it up and throw in any leftovers I need to get rid of. I had a package of chicken sausage that I had purchased on sale so I made this risotto that I will be eating the next couple of days for work lunches. It’s not very traditional but it tastes fickin’ good! I try to cook using all natural and organic ingredients when I can.

"Mostly" organic breakfast

Project 365: Day 2

Egg sandwich

So this is what I make for breakfast pretty much every work day. Eating the same thing every morning probably sound boring, but it’s fast, delicious and mostly healthy! I’ll make a fried runny egg sandwich using a One Bun whole wheat 100 calorie bun, an organic egg, 2 slices of prosciutto, and cheese. La Quercia prosciutto is my preferred choice. I buy it at my neighborhood Whole Foods, but they sometimes run out of stock and won’t get more for over a week, lame! Then I have to buy some replacement brand. I think this one is Fiorucci – not as yummy. I rotate the cheeses depending on what’s on sale at Whole Foods. Right now I’m on a super nommy wedge of brillat savarin.

Egg sandwich and coffee

I have to have coffee in the morning! It helps wake me up and I love the taste. I buy organic coffee (different brands depending on what’s on sale) and use an organic vanilla flavored soy creamer. I’d prefer to use a milk based creamer, but none of the organic brands have a flavored option. Egg sammich + coffee = happy vicenteSF!

So I’m still feeling sick today, but I’ve decided to go into work anyway. Partly because I don’t want to use up all my sick leave and partly because Rapunzel got screwed yesterday with SO much work. I guess some other people called in sick, too. I wish I could have another day in bed to fully recover but I guess I feel well enough to at least go in and get some work done.
