Reminder. If you haven’t entered my drawing yet, DO EEEET!!
Welcome to the latest edition of What I Ate Wednesday, EVER. I told myself I would just lay my head down for a minute longer because the kids were asleep. This of course, meant I would sleep for another 1.5 hours in complete and total bliss. So thank you, Peas and Crayons, once again, your blog is the place to party.
I don’t know if you’ve ever figured this out, but I am stuck as far as breakfasts go. It’s the winter-I’m eating oatmeal. It’s warm and yummy, and I could make it drunk and blindfolded. (I am not often drunk and blindfolded at breakfast-I generally wait till lunch.)
As a snack, I had a few of these toffee bits. They’re soo good.
For lunch, the Captain wanted noodles. I did NOT want Chinese lo mein or spaghetti, so I looked in my fridge to see what I had on hand. I got lucky.
I made a greek pasta for me, and alio olio for the Captain. Both had feta, carrots, snap peas and garlic. Mine was tossed in a Greek Vinaigrette his was not. I’ll let you guess whose strawberry banana applesauce that was.
Yields 4 servings

Dinner was fast and furious. Sushi at Bay Sushi in Bay Ridge. We had some things to do last evening, and the boys were getting hangry. The Captain declared “I WANT SUSHI” good. Healthy and quick.
Dinner started with a yuzu saketini. I don’t think there was actually any alcohol in it, but it was still tasty.
I had the BEST salad. Ok, the salad itself was “ok” but the dressing was perfect. I did like that the broccoli was steamed lightly and chilled before being placed on the salad. That was pretty boss.Dinner was full of maki. Salmon avocado, spicy salmon, something called a “Christmas Roll” (if your family is Japanese-and also Christian) and a crapton of pickled ginger. I wanted to take a photo of it uneaten, but the Captain swooped in before it even hit the table.
By the end of the day, I was so tired, I wanted to wrap myself in cellophane until I passed out. Instead, I had some green tea and headed to bed in my fuzzy socks. Just as good, really.
Anyone else beyond exhausted this time of year?
Ever had a saketini?
