I started out the day yesterday with a chocolate cafe au lait followed by breakfast once the dear husband woke up. I made wafflewiches with whole wheat waffles topped scrambled eggs and egg whites. I also had a tangerine on the side. I must say, this breakfast was v. disappointing. It wasn’t filling and the waffles were not that great. I have never been a fan of frozen waffles but I see them so much in blog land that I thought I would give them a try again. Now I remember why I don’t like them.
After all of our housework was done, we had lunch. I had falafel on whole wheat pita with a yogurt sauce that I made with cilantro, garlic and greek yogurt. I also had half of a small apple while I prepared it all. The falafel came from costco and for falafel that I didn’t have to make myself, it is really good!
After lunch, the glutton fest began. We watched about of the second season of Grey’s Anatomy and didn’t really do much else. I didn’t even stalk blogs (which I am VERY behind on reading/commenting) or my email all day! Needless to say, this show is a bit addicting. About mid afternoon, I did make us a batch of popcorn to tide us over until dinner. I made it in the air popper with canola oil and salt. There is no picture because…well…I was too lazy, I know, bad blogger!
For dinner, I made chicken and potatoes in the crockpot. It didn’t turn out that well and it all fell apart. It was actually pretty unappetizing so I didn’t photograph it and I barely ate any of it. I guess some things are good in theory but a whole chicken in the crockpot is not one of them. For dessert, I had a bowl of cocoa pebbles with milk. Even after all of this, I felt very unsatisfied with my food choices for the day. I sat there in stewed in it and made the decision that eating something else probably wouldn’t cure it so I just went to bed.
Thought Provoker: Do you have days that feel very unsatisfying food wise? What do you do to solve this problem?
