I’ve tried out some new foods recently, some for eating and some for drawing. The kohlrabi roasts in the oven as I type this and the aubergine — I just can’t call it eggplant! — lies waiting for an idea to pop into my head. The aubergine doesn’t look like the kind I know, the [...]

I still have issues eating bread, so I’ve made a bit of my own (totally abused my rice-cooker for it too!). I like pita-breads, they seem to work well, so I searched for a recipe and found one. I will cut the recipe into 1/3 (this worked pretty well with my previous bread), because 1/4 means too many calculations and weird things (call me lazy ;) ).
I’ll still make eight, just eight small ones :D
They’ll fit in my bento too!
For Monday I have planned the following meals:
- Danoontje Snack (curd cheese?)
- Breakfast cereal (cornflakes)
- Burrito for lunch (pre-made)
- Little tomatoes filled with mozzarella balls, sprinkled with herbs and pepper and salt.
- Slice of ontbijtkoek
- A mini babybel or two.
- Boiled egg.
For Tuesday I’ll eat oatmeal, with fruit and cinnamon sugar, instead of cornflakes (oh, how I love the timer on my ricecooker). Not sure about lunch or dinner yet, will think about it some more tomorrow.
Unfortunately, so far I suck at mealplanning. I know I need to, it helps with eating and all, and because lunch plays such an important part in my day, I think I should plan lunch and dinner.
I don’t mean I have to make a list of lunches and dinner and days and stick to it with my last dying breath. Anything can happen. Mostly I want to have a list I can refer to, that I can fall back on.
I’ve tried googling this, but what I find usually refers to big families and I don’t have the mealplanning-foo to translate that to me as a single very small portion eating person.
Anyone ideas? Links?
I’ve made a few lunches for work, either in my little food-containers or in mr. Bento. It has worked pretty well for bringing my own food along, and making sure I eat enough. I received my new Laptop Lunchbox which will let me more easily transport my tasty burritos. It turned out smaller than I [...]
I’ve missed eating pizza since surgery. I did, a few times, but it only went well if I ate take-away pizza from one of those pizza places, not the kind I can buy in the supermarket. I could only eat 2 or 3 slices, and it seems a bit expensive to order in and only eat 1/4 of the pizza. It has to do with the dough, although I don’t know the details of why it doesn’t go well. Can’t eat bread either, same problem. I get really ill.
Today I made a most excellent discovery. Gordita’s (small, thicker tortilla wraps) work really well as a pizza-bottom. I tossed on some tomato sauce, chopped up veggies and mushrooms, added shredded cheese and popped the whole thing in the oven for 15 minutes.
Best pizza I ever had.
So I made another one just now. Two pizza’s in one day. I like to spoil myself.
Having to eat every two hours means I often have a (post)midnight-snack. Tonight I enjoyed a nice little potato-gratin with cheese and cream. Small enough to not fill me up too much, but large enough to properly feed me and get me through my night of sleep.
