Delayed again with the weekly What I Ates! Stuff is still super busy around here and I have been making quick meals and not bothering to photograph them. Or maybe too much time has been spent trying to de-stress with a bunch of Dolly Parton music videos. And then more time spent trying to look up metal covers. I did enjoy the process of introducing my nine year old daughter to Dolly because she thought the song was called Trollene. It was a sad day when she started pronouncing Britney Spears correctly and was no longer saying Brick Knee of Spheres. Just like when my son thought Shortbread Creams were Shortbread Crimes. ANYWAY.
First up, the leftover lemongrass tofu from Huong Viet with veg and soba noodles:
Tabouli Rasa Vegan & Vegetarian Food is a market stall. I got this falafel and salad lunch box from the Coburg Farmers Market. Really lovely and fresh:
One of the quick meals was some roasted eggplant, tomatoes and basil from the garden:
Another quick meal, this time a load of veg, brown lentils and a curry paste and tomato base, served over brown basmati rice:
This was the only green on St. Patrick’s Day, a mint smoothie made with frozen banana, oats, Prana On Supergreens (mint flavour) and a couple drops of green food colour for the novelty factor. I also managed to place it on the part of the marble slab that has those weird stains I can’t remove:
And that’s really about it. Quite uninspired and mehhhh (the veg lentil curry looks way better than it tastes), but very quick and easy. Rice cookers really are amazing.
