That’s this one!
Sorry. I couldn’t resist
I saw my dad after work today and he gave me that, bless him.
It was so beautiful, wandering round his garden in the beautiful, beautiful SUN! It’s been ROASTING today! Sorry for the gratuitous capitals and exclamation marks but it’s been that amazingly, deliciously, stunningly summery today – and I love it
But anyway… on to the party!
This week’s What I Ate Wednesday is actually What I Ate Today, which is a first.
And there were some unusual (for me at the moment) variations, starting with breakfast:
I hadn’t had chia pudding – or bananas – for ages, because of my obsession with yoghurt/berries/granola but suddenly fancied it. I used Kara coconut milk, chia seeds, a mashed banana and some vanilla yoghurt, left overnight and blended in the morning.
Now I think about it, for a breakfast that seemed so different, it still contained fruit, yoghurt and granola. Variation fail
Lunch was as boring as work lunches normally are but dinner was delicious:
I made a frittata, with pre-steamed carrot and swede slices, spinach and cheese. I had it with some of this, which I also found out today my dad grows:
I’d never had purple sprouting broccoli before, although I do regularly eat my own weight in its green cousin, but I loved it. I also had courgette, sliced, sprinkled with garlic salt and roasted which is out of this world.
Now I think of it though, is slices of carrot and swede in a frittata that different from carrot and swede mash? I think not. Variation fail number 2
Pudding always follows - and is always a dark-chocolate-sprinkled Mullerlight yoghurt – but I also had one of these:
A Del Monte frozen yoghurt bar; vanilla in the middle and some sort of berry sorbet bit round the outside… these are amazing! Perfect on a roasting hot night like this; or a cold night, to be honest, I just wanted to mention again how SUMMERY it is!
I do love a bit of heat
Happy WIAW and thank you to Jenn for hosting!
What’s your favourite summery thing to eat? I know it’s a boring question – but I can’t resist this (very rare) chance to ask it
