Hello everyone. HAPPY WIAW! Being able to share my eats with you all makes my Wednesdays really special and I look forward to them
just almost as much as I look forward to Fridays. Today I’m sharing Monday’s eats with you. I’m still at home (I fly back to England on Friday) so I basically spend 5-6 hours per day in the kitchen baking, cooking and working on recipes. It makes me feel like an actual recipe developer and I have to say, I quite like it 🙂
You will see that with Monday’s eats I was able to eat a lot of local produce. And by local I mean straight from our back yard. The salad is excellent and I’ve already had a couple of strawberries. My mom is an avid gardener and I really hope that one day, when I have my own garden she’ll pass on some of her expertise to me and help me create my own vegetable patch.
As always, a big thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly foodie event 🙂 I love that the theme for this month is snacking, because who doesn’t love a healthy mid-morning or afternoon snack???
The day started off with a gigantic bowl of greek yogurt. It was topped off with basically anything and everything I could find in the fridge: strawberries, blueberries and cherries. For some extra crunch I added home-made granola and of course banana. Sometimes I really wish I’d still live in Indonesia where we had a banana tree in the garden. But I suppose, then I wouldn’t have strawberries and lettuce growing in the back yard.
I hung around the house, walked Sunny, worked out and invaded the kitchen before it was time for lunch. It doesn’t happen too often, but sometimes all I want is an egg. Of course I couldn’t pass on some fresh salad from the garden so I made myself a bowl of salad with tomatoes and mushrooms. Topped it off with hummus and tzatziki and had an egg, sunny-side-up, on top. I ate it straight out of the bowl to save dishes . . . and because I was super-hungry. It was scrumptious!
When my mom came home from work we had coffee and dessert, Mannerschnitten (one of Austria’s finest creations, if you ask me!).
I then continued my kitchen projects before having my afternoon snack. I’m totally loving watermelon at the moment. Perfect for hydration!!! I also had to taste-test one of the recipes I made (banana bread energy bars).
These are sooo good. They’re quite similar to these bars, just a little lighter and perfect for the summer. The recipe is coming your way very soon.
I was in charge of preparing dinner for the family. We had quinoa-stuffed kohlrabi. The recipe may be found here. The kohlrabi was picked straight from the garden, of course and it made a wonderfully light dinner. Everyone was in the mood for dessert/ snack so I prepared a bowl of greek yogurt, more granola and a spoon (or two) of my mom’s home-made apricot jam. Cherry on top (another one of my summer favorites).
Can’t wait to see what you guys have been eating/ snacking on!!! HAPPY WIAW!!!!!
