- roast pork tenderloin with garlic, rosemary, sage, lemon peel on a bed of brown rice
- delicata squash and leek soup (also with rosemary and sage)
- homemade garlic croutons
- whole wheat banana bread with chocolate chips and ginger
- sugar snap peas
I made the squash and leek soup with every intention of pushing through my mushy, yellow food aversion. I even made some delicious garlicky croutons to add some much need crunch and firmness to the soup. But, I regret to report, I couldn't get the whole thing down this afternoon. After about 4 or 5 difficult, angst laden swallows I gave up. I felt every atom of it slither down my throat and, although it was perfectly seasoned and flovared, it was agony. You'll be happy to hear that I had no problem with the chocolate chip ginger banana bread. Surprise. Surprise. The best part of today lunch, however, was definitely the sugar snap peas. I discovered that I can pack them in my box raw and then just put a tiny bit of water in the little removable compartment and nuke it for 60 seconds. Win!
