Oh, you are too good to me. Nitey nite! /thread derailment
Jan 19 2007, 04:38 AM
mouse, yuefie's right, sugar snap peas are called mange tout here. It's odd that sometimes we have completely different words for things, especially veg; AP mentioned below that rocket is know by her (and I'm presuming the States, then) as arugula, and of course there's zucchini/courgette and eggplant/aubergine.
Jan 19 2007, 11:47 AM
yeah!! for the longest time i thought that courgettes were like, breaded chicken cutletty things. i have no idea where i got that from. it certainly made for some confusion. aubergine is a little more common, especially since we like to call purple things "aubergine" when we're feeling classy, but i'd never heard of mange-tout.

Mouse, maybe it's because "courgette" was reminding you of "croquette"?

Jan 25 2007, 09:32 AM
I’m actually eating yogurt, granola with raisins and toped with fresh strawberries. I got it in the school cafeteria. I usually hate yogurt but with all the other stuff it’s really not that bad. I’d even go as far as to say that it’s good. I can never find breakfast food that I like that is good for me. Maybe I’ll start eating this more regularly. Yogurt is very good for your girly parts right?
Jan 25 2007, 10:21 AM
last night i had a tomato and pesto gardenburger with brushcetta on toasted 12-grain oatnut bread, a salad of mixed spring greens and baby spinach with dried mixed berries, feta, rasberry hazelnut vinaigrette, glazed pecans, and chunks of havarti with dill, and topped off my whole gourmet veggie lovefest with a jack and coke. it was delish, so i'm having it again for breakfast. yes, the jack and coke too.
Jan 26 2007, 08:10 PM
lots of trail mix
processed meal- asian veggie soup
tons of jelly belly beans- regret!
soup (butternut squash, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, shallots, garlic, and cayenne pepper)
Since I have to be at work for 7am tomorrow, I stayed home tonight and made the curry and the soup. My coworker is going to love me tomorrow when I bring in leftovers.
Jan 27 2007, 11:25 AM
cherry crepes for breakfast, mmmm.....
Jan 27 2007, 11:51 AM
-one hard boiled egg with salt
-whole wheat toast with butter and apricot spread, mmmmm
-a cup of rooibos chai with vanilla soy milk and honey
-dark hot chocolate with a bit of milk and topped with chili pepper
Last night's dinner:
-leftover eggplant and zuccini (or should I say aubergine and courgette?) parmesan
-a pretty, colourful salad consisting of spring greens, red cabbage, grated carrot, cherry tomatos, and yellow peppers, with roasted garlic dressing.
-a pot of mojito tea (fresh mint tea with brown sugar and lime juice, and Flor de Cana rum).
I never knew that Brits called Eggplant and zucchini by those names, I only knew those as the French words for those veggies.
Jan 27 2007, 11:50 PM
I'm hungry and I've eaten everything in the office (ie. an almost dead nectarine and tuna and beans) so I shouldn't be lurking in here, still lots of good dinner tips.
Australians also favour 'eggplant' and 'zucchini', colonial roots on display I guess.
I really want some cheese.
Jan 28 2007, 05:38 PM
yesterday was my b-day, so i woke up to glazed croissants with almond paste from my favorite local bakery, and a cake for after dinner. we went to tahoe joe's steakhouse for dinner, where i had batter-dipped artichoke hearts with garlic lemon butter and fresh parmesan, a bowl of clam chowder with yummy sourdough rolls, a 20-oz prime rib (that i had to take home), green beans, and gargantuan baked potato oozing with butter, sour cream, chives, and bacon. the cake had to wait til this morning, but everyone knows morning-after birthday cake is the best.
Jan 28 2007, 08:48 PM
Anyone who likes pineapple then you have to try a Caribou Lou. It’s one part Bacardi 101 proof rum, one part Malibu rum and 2-3 parts pineapple juice. Pour it over or shake it up with some ice. It’s the best ice cold. If you really want to get f***** up then cut up a fresh pineapple and let it soak in the mixture for a few hours then fish it out and eat it. I think it’s my new favorite drink. I drank it pretty much all day today. I’m still all warm and fuzzy.
Jan 30 2007, 07:12 AM

Homemade meatloaf, baked potato loaded with organic butter and sour cream, fresh cut carrots and sweet peas and a fab baby green organic salad with tomatoes and blue cheese crumbles with a ceasar dressing.
