Andrea: If you want pretty pictures of food

…go somewhere else! Seriously, it’s a wonder I have any regular readers.

I admit that sometimes I try to “style” my food – you know, at least wipe stray crumbs or sauce off the plate. Today was not one of those days. Today was a day where everything was eaten on the fly and for convenience.

Exhibit 1:

Oats in a jar.

Picture taken after I got to work and was finishing up while in the parking lot.

Exhibit 2:

Lunch at my desk.


Pepper crackers & goat cheese


Salad with cukes, carrots, 1/2 avocado, sunflower & pumpkin seeds.

I think I finally started eating lunch at 2 p.m.? I honestly can’t remember.

Exhibit 3:

Grilled cheese – does it get any easier than that?


I got home from work just before 8 p.m. and the last thing I wanted to do was cook for 30 minutes or more. This meal took me five minutes. I made the grilled cheese in the toaster oven, and microwaved the sweet potato. I thought about eating another vegetable just for color, but once I realized that meant turning on the oven, I was like, “fuck that.” But hey, at least the cheese is raw organic sharp cheddar cheese, and for fun I added hot sauce to my Carolina BBQ sauce. Sadly, that’s the most exciting thing I did all day.

To reward myself for a long day of work, I am now having a piece of banana bread…


…with Earth Balance. Oh, yeeaaaaahhhhh.

  1. I’m just happy to see a new post from you! And that dang tasty banana bread with EB. Hellz yeah.


  2. I am really jealous of you eating banana bread right now. I could do something about it and test out a new gluten-free banana bread recipe. But that would require driving to the store to find some bruised bananas and that isn’t going to happen. Have a great night!


  3. Hahahaha. I had a fuck that moment with my kitchen last night. Whatever works, lady friend.


  4. I want grilled cheese. Now.
