Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner: Oatmeal, Salad, and Pizza

Okay, the oatmeal was from yesterday, but the salad and pizza were from today.

I sauteed 1/2 an apple with a tsp of sugar and some cinnamon, and put it on top of a leftover instant oatmeal packet.  Good for my sore throat yesterday.

I have this great cookbook called "Eat Drink & Weigh Less" by Mollie Katzen and Walter Willett, MD.  One of my favorite recipes is for marinated white beans.  It's pretty simple: white beans, olive oil, vinegar, basil, oregano, garlic, with some optional veggies.  I made it today and tossed it with spicy salad mix from the CSA.  I added some tiny tomatoes from my still producing 2011 tomato plants, and some olives.

And tonight was pizza night.  I am starting to fear what it will be like having two boys in the house.  Though my son only had 1 slice of pizza, this afternoon he ate an ear of corn (from the lady at the park), a banana, applesauce, carrots, a few slices of homemade focaccia, romanesco, milk, 3 girl scout cookies, more bread, and I'm sure I'm forgetting at least one thing.  Now, I'm eating for two, so I'm showing my third piece of pizza prominently on my plate (and I had a couple of slices of focaccia also).  Hopefully by the time we have a 6 year old and a 12 year old, we'll be close enough to 50 that spouse and I will have slowed down our eating.

Oh, and last night I stir-fried some bok choy, carrots, and kohlrabi, and we ate it with Annie Chun's teriyaki noodles, leftover from our vacation trip.  Those things aren't the healthiest, but they are easy to prepare if all you have is hot water.
