Fast Food. Really.



From the way I cook on here - the breads and sweets, especially - you guys are likely to think we eat like pigs! It's not true. In fact, we rarely eat everything I bake (I almost always take it to work - out of sight out of mind), and our meals are usually on the run or shared with family (my grandfather and little sister) so that we don't have a lot of leftovers. I am not a fan of leftovers. (With the exception of cold pizza, cold fried chicken and rewarmed mac-n-cheese. Huh. That's a healthful list...)

Quite often we're on our own for all our meals because our schedules are just so jam-packed that a) we're never home to eat together and b) sometimes I'll eat something that Brad's just not keen on. Take that photo at the top - you might not think that's not so appetizing but to me it looks awesome and it's a staple in my diet!

Sauteed zucchini in olive oil, buckwheat soba and shaved parmesan: I just about eat a variation of this everyday for lunch. Sometimes it's whole-wheat angel-hair pasta or brown rice instead of soba, and sometimes it's squash, cabbage, broccolli or snowpeas instead of zucchini (depends on my mood and the contents of the fridge), and sometimes I throw in fresh chopped garlic and onions (if I have any). Really. It's good. And while that parmesan isn't exactly low-fat (ew), a little bit never hurt anybody and it makes me happy. So I eat it. Moderation is they key to life, right?

How about you guys? Do you eat all you cook? Who do you share it with? And what is your go-to meal when you're short on time but absolutely starving, which is usually how I find myself when I slow down to eat!
