OK, let's talk about what I ate today.
Toast and grapefruit juice from home
This was eaten at 1am. Late night snack or very, very early breakfast? YOU decide!
Cheese from home, banana and juice from the bistro (free)
A.K.A. Second Breakfast
AM tea from the bistro - free
I'm trying to ween myself from
German candy Ellen brought to the office - free
These are pretty cute. They represent the walk/don't walk signs you find on street corners in Germany. Tasty, too.
Couscous, mushroom salad, lemonade and clafoutis pie from the bistro - free
I was somebody's "Buddy" at work today. That means I had the task to welcome a new employee and help make her few first days go smoothly. As a thank you, Sid Lee gives out two free bistro tickets to encourage us to have a meal with our new buddy. Fun! Thanks Sid Lee! And lucky me, today was couscous day. It's one of the best meals our chefs make and it is hotter than hell.
This is what the bistro tickets look like:
Sencha tea from the bistro - free
Afternoon snack attack - $2.50
Ok, Ok, Ok, so I had ONE Diet Coke. Big deal! Leave me alone! Baaaaaaah!
Biscuit from the bistro
We just launched a new site for Philadelphia Cheese and these one-bowl biscuits are one of the recipes you can learn how to prepare there. So the bistro chefs decided to make a batch and we got to try them. They are very good! There was a pile of leftovers, so I brought some home to try with my soup tomorrow. The biscuits were also delicious with the last of my mousse. This is pretty much proof that bringing back work at home can be fun! Heh.
Dinner was panko-crusted lemon chicken with spinach
Handful of Reese Chipits
These are delicious. I bought them to make cookies. I should not have open the bag as now I am doomed to eat the whole thing within the week. Maybe I should freeze it.
Homemade cream of celery soup with bacon
Yes, I ate soup after dessert. I made a big batch and could not resist having a bowl. It is so yummy - and easy to prepare. The bacon gives it a nice salty kick. The recipe can be found on Apartment Therapy's food and cooking zone.
