So, today, I'll just blog what I have eaten. It may give you some ideas to try some new stuff.
For breakfast, I had a very refreshing bowl of a half cup of Stonyfield French Vanilla Low-fat Yogurt. My fave!...with about a cup of chopped ruby red strawberries and 2 tablespoons of my mother's Great Granola. YUM!
Strawberries have been one of my favorite fruits these days. I can't get enough of them!
Lunch was leftovers...
Dinner was a new recipe I found on Happy Herbivore's blog. I have been searching for a really good veggie meat loaf recipe. I thought I found one on VegWeb.com, but I think I found a better one. Easy, tasty, and quick! The longest part is the baking. Since I didn't change anything, here's the link to the recipe. You would need a package of Gimme Lean Beef-style ground "meat" to make it. Gimme Lean can be pricey though. When it's on sale, I grab a package or two for a quick meal when I can't make my imitation meat from scratch.
The recipe suggests baking for 1 hour and 30 minutes, but the recipe says it could be baked less and to check it, depending on your oven. I could have baked it for a maximum of 1 hour and 15. It was moist, but the edges got a tad crispy. Still tasty though! We topped it with a mushroom gravy recipe from VegWeb.com. Another favorite of mine.
I can't wait to try it tomorrow, leftover. I'm sure it makes a great sandwich!
We had the loaf with a side of baked potato...another fave of mine sine I was a kid...with a little bit of Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette...better than using butter, or even vegan butter...I love baked potato with dressing rather than butter. Even when we eat out, I may ask for baked potato with some dressing on the side instead of fries to cut back on calories...and it's better for you!
I also used my new steamer today, my brother gave me for my birthday. Great invention! I steamed some carrots until they just began to soften and still had a bit of a crisp. I set the timer and walked away! The way I like it! I do like the simplicity of the 1800's BUT I do appreciate the technology of today, no doubt!
