Monday Musing

09 May

Yesterday’s Mother’s Day dinner was awesome! Lots of food and I even thought that 2 dishes that I brought were barely made any appearance among all these food that FIL (father-in-law) cooked!

Yes, I consumed gluten/grain/sugar/vegetable oil (the only food I didn’t have were the deep fried egg rolls and the fried fish)I gotta had my father-in-law’s homemade fish noodles because it was made from scratch! Worth the cheat! Even Hubby K was a bit surprised when I asked him to give me some of those..hehe.

So what about breakfast and lunch, you asked?

Here you go.

We were actually planning to eat out for lunch but figured restaurants might be very crowded because of Mother’s Day. So after we shopped at Henry’s Market, we came back home and heated up whatever we had.

I’m not sure if you noticed, but I didn’t do ANY workout over the weekend so today I blasted 6 minute workout for 2 rounds and that was enough to pump me up for the day.

I didn’t really have any post workout meal, so instead I combined them together as my breakfast: Sliced of a whole Japanese yam with 2 slices of Applegate Organics Roast Beef.

I loaded my b-fast a bit because my lunch was a bit skimpy on protein side.
3 slices char siew, steamed spinach and hidden slices of Bo Kho

Fear not, I also packed some Full Fat Fage Greek yogurt with strawberry slices

Which I ended up not having it as my afternoon snack but as my after dinner dessert.

Usually I always pack a lot of healthy snacks in addition to my main meal. The reason being is I rather over-packed than under-packed. In some ways by packing enough/lot of food gives my mind an ease that I won’t be food deprived in case I’m hungry in between meals. Sometimes I don’t even eat my snack if I don’t feel hungry in between meals (just like today).

Dinner was just whatever available in my pantry and I’m telling you I cooked way too much Char Siew. Gosh, no way I’m going to consume pork all week…not a big pork fan. Once in a while is fine.

AndI have this baby.

Are you thinking what I am thinking?

Yup, you guessed it right. Here’s my dinner. Left over Bo Kho (tasted even better now!), Roasted Curried Cauliflower, steamed Chinese greens, and sliced avocados.

And I don’t want to eat more pork so I cooked up some grass fed ground beef seasoned with taco seasonings.

My lunch for tomorrow is set!

Btw my mom is thousand miles away from me and technically we don’t celebrate Mother’s Day the same day as US and Canada. Indonesians have their own Mother’s Day, which falls on December 22. But I’m guilty enough that I don’t even remember to call her on that day. Speaking of which, I actually called her while writing this post…yeah multi-tasking.

    Wow, that WAS a lot of food. Your FIL sure can cook. I’m sure your Mom always appreciates a call from you, Mother’s Day or not.

    i cant believe how nice/incredable your pictures are. i have a $500 sony camera, and i think your close ups exceed mine. your site and pics totally show me how lacking or void of quality food i have neglected myself from. if you and hubby ever split (lol like zu & fredy) i want to come and take up his place!
