I spent all of last week dogsitting.
I should rephrase that. I spent all of last week dogsitting AND housesitting.
What that means is that I didn’t see my apartment for a solid six days. I forgot to pack a pair of heels for work. I didn’t bring enough pairs of socks. I did manage to bring a few perishable items from my fridge, but not enough.
So my eating has been a bit slapdash.
But, I did manage to discover a new favorite snack.
A plain brown rice cake, topped with a few tablespoons of shredded cheddar and microwaved for 12 (yes twelve) seconds.
I realize that it kind of makes me look like a drunk, kitchen-deprived college kid. But that’s not really all that far off from the truth anyway. No shame.
Being without my kitchen or stash of groceries also meant that I had the opportunity to dine out more frequently than usual.
That was a mid-week lunch of stir fried tofu and veggies with cashews, brown rice and a veggie egg roll from a little Thai restaurant near my office.
I ate all my veggies. I mean, if I can’t cook for myself at least I’m getting nutrients, right?
Plus, look! I stole lettuce from my parents’ house and made a salad!
With one crouton!
I’m weird. I just wanted one crouton, so I had one crouton. God bless America.
Anyway, that’s where I’ve been. I made it through the week and got settled back in at my apartment. I haven’t made it to the grocery store yet, though, which means that the eating-out fiesta continues and I have some restaurant reviews to post over the next few days for all you local folk.
One of these days I might even have a recipe for you! Stay tuned.
