Carbs, carbs, and more carbs
I love bread. Sorry, I’m not sorry. For those who can and do low-carb diets, I salute you! Every time I drop my carb intake, the pounds seem to melt off. Unfortuantely, I love pizza crust and sweet potatoes and carrots and pineapples and OMG CARBS. So I don’t do low-carb. Just like I’m tempted to go 100% vegetarian, but the thought of a sweet juicy steak every 6-months keeps me from taking the plunge. We eat veg 6 days out of 7, I don’t worry about our meat intake’s effect on the environment OR our bodies.
Anyway, it feels like I ate a lot of carbs, but when I look back on my pictures, actually, no. Very few carbs, in fact. I worked really hard to photograph everything I ate, so I’ll blame it on a faulty memory. Or getting days mixed up.
I started the day with a delicious cup of vanilla coffee. I can’t figure out why the bottle recommends up to 2T of sugar-free syrup. One teaspoon is more than enough sweetness in my morning coffee. Since we were apparently out of bread, pasta, and all other delicious carb-filled goodness, I made some egg-drop soup. Pictured here on my dusty dusty desk.
Bertrand’s mom sent down a ton of pineapples and yams from the North, which is great. Even better? Fresh wagasi.
I fried that up right quick and devoured two slices with Trader Joe’s Sweet&Hot mustard. Also eaten with TJ’s delicious mustard? Cucumbers. Not pictured because DAMN, those pictures are noisy.
For dinner, I reheated a smoked guinea fowl that B’s mom sent us. Pictured here with veggies tossed with Old Bay, then roasted.
P.S.Today’s pictures are really grainy, for some reason. ISO too high?
