Hey all! I’m slowly coming back to reality! On my last day of vacation, I decided to resume the usual food blogging documentation. I took a break on vacation, but did take pictures of some of the more memorable moments! I’ll share those tomorrow. On to today, which was filled with many small meals:
This morning for breakfast, I was grateful to be able to cook for myself again as we spent our last night on vacation at my in-laws house:
I did screw up my first attempt at this when I accidently dumped a ridiculous amount of pepper on my meal. That’s what happens when you depend on a cruise ship to prepare your meals for five days! Those are made with two pieces of italian bread, two large eggs and about 1/8 cup of shredded cheddar.
Due to my silliness in booking our rental car, we ended up at the airport SUPER early. I enjoyed this to kill some time:
Since we had a 1:10PM flight that would not have meal service, we hit up Quiznos’ at the airport for lunch. I did some pre-arrival research and I went in with a plan on what I to order. However, I realized the limited airport menu was going to thwart me. After refusing to pay Starbucks $8 for a little turkey sandwich (!!!), I went back to Quiznos’ and ordered the regular size Traditional (the only size offered) with no cheese, ranch dressing or black olives (AKA NO FUN) and added a ridiculous amount of jalapeno, banana peppers and pickles. What I ended up eating was what they consider to be a “small” sub at Quiznos’:
I almost forgot to take the picture of the half of the sandwich I did eat! I have to get back into food blogging mode. Hans enjoyed the second half of my sub.
On the airplane ride, I enjoyed the beverage service option of hot tea with a HUGE Braeburn apple:
I was happy to see we brough the FL weather home to Cleveland: it was 68 degrees and sunny this afternoon! My mom picked us up from Hopkins and took us back to my parents’ house to a big pot of homemade chicken soup on the stove. Nothing says “welcome home” like a bowl of this:
Once back home at our house and while uploading photos, I made myself something for dinner: alas – my camera phone pics came out gross so know that with an empty pantry & fridge, I used what I had. Luckily, I snagged a loaf of whole wheat bread from my parents. I also knew I had some eggs, cheese, and some of Dr. Praeger’s California Veggie Burgers in my freezer. Here’s what happened:
- I took two pieces of bread & toasted them up.
- I then cooked an egg over easy on the stove (I know – a lot of eggs for one day, but think of it as a three egg omelet in another setting).
- I microwaved the veggie burger for a minute, then added one slice of low-fat cheddar cheese & melted that on top.
- Finally, I assembled said pieces into a yummy, runny egg, cheese and veggie sandwich.
…and based on my calculations, for a total of 330 calories!
I have to admit – I’m happy to be home, and happier to have a Sunday to recoup before a crazy week! A certain husband of mine has a birthday this week and there’s plenty to do before then! I hope to have my vacation summary up tomorrow in addition to the usual food bloggyness. The DD Flatbread review is coming – I promise!
For now, I have laundry to do and a Cavs game to watch! Enjoy your nights!
