This is how today's lunch started out. I flew into a cooking frenzy over the weekend and made two fish meals. A fish stew (which I'm sure will appear later in my lunch) and these fish cakes. My mom used to make these all the time when I was a kid and when I was in third grade I ate a record 11 of these babies in one sitting and went on to projectile vomit all over the walls of my parents bathroom. Moving on...
It's a simple mixture of canned tuna fish, boiled potatoes, onions and parsley all mashed together with a raw egg to bind it. Lots of fresh cracked black pepper and a couple of dashes of salt. I fried the little cakes in olive oil. Not super healthy, but oh so tasty.
I made a quick menu and I'm sort of showing you the nerdy carrying case I use every day. Yes, it has a name tag and dancing computer on it. Yes, I'm 32
Hey, this is what our carrots from the CSA look like. I read somewhere that tons of fruits and vegetables are thrown out because they don't look the way they are "supposed" to look. I come from a town that specializes in growing carrots and ships them all over the world (I even found carrots from my hometown being sold in a market in South America) but this is the first time I've ever seen a bent carrot. Makes you think.
I prepped my breakfast and lunch after dinner last night. There is a glass of wine in the picture and I just want to make it clear that I don't drink wine at breakfast. Not yet anyway.
I bought some frozen pineapple at Target last week and I've been pretty disappointed with it. It's not nearly as ripe and juicy as the frozen pineapple I got from Whole Foods. I saved about a dollar in buying the Target pineapple. Lesson learned.
I ran out of my frittata mix so tomorrow's breakfast is anyone's guess. Something in the oatmeal arena feels about right. I liked my fish cake salad today, but, to be honest, I kind of miss my simple turkey sandwich. But, there are more fish cakes and plenty of fish stew in the fridge form me to use up.
