Food Prepping

Food prepping is one of those things I swear I'll do... but don't. It's right up there with making meals for the week. I either end up eating everything that day, or I bring it to work and don't touch it. Wasteful. 

And portions. I am horrible at doing that. For example, that pan there? That can be broken up into what... three portions, with a little bit of each? Half I threw into a container for work (which I ended up not eating until I got back home), and the other half I ate right off the pan. It was delicious, by the way. Olive oil and some Cajun seasoning. 

I think I need more cooking structure. Next week. My life will be less crazy after Saturday.

Biking to Work

I"m finally starting to switch over to biking to work. Coincidentally I started during bike to work week, I started yesterday, and I think I'm getting the hang of it. I may be jumping the gun in writing that, but I have a better idea of how much time I need and how to get there. Majority of my ride is on trails, but it starts and finishes with streets. The worst part is the afternoon trip back to Troy, with having to deal with that intersection at the Green Island bridge. Everything else has been decent.

Hopefully the area starts to wise up and put in bike lanes. Give me a slight sense of security as I try to be get around on my bike.

Late Night Meal Prep


I should be studying. Actually, I should be sleeping. But the night owl in me never lets that happen.
So I figure I should make food for lunch. Something a bit more substantial than vegetables, which don't get me wrong... are good. Just boring. And no protein.

So I'm poaching chicken. Nothing fancy. Garlic, peppercorns, star anise. Okay, maybe the star anise is a bit fancy. But hey... spice it up.

I'm thinking adding the chicken to salad for lunch, and perhaps a noodle soup for dinner.

Wait... don't I have some CBC in the fridge?

Wonder if that is still good.

P.S. - I wrote this on phone.

P.P.S. - I used the swipe function to write it. How about all that fancy tech savvy...ness. I don't like my phone throwing words in there it thinks I want there. Just had to correct a bit.

Short Cut Sinigang

Sure, I could make this from scratch. But this makes it so much easier.

And make sure you have plenty of rice.
