Fruit or Vegetable

Posted by chris on Oct 1st, 2012 1 comment

  • Victoria: does eating homemade salsa count as a serving of vegetables? I’m going to say that it does.
  • Chris: As everyone knows, the tomato is a fruit. Denied!
  • Victoria: hmph. the peppers don’t count? I use a LOT of peppers.
  • Chris: As everyone knows, botanically speaking, peppers are a fruit.
  • Victoria: I think I hate you.

I’m aware that anyone who says “botanically speaking” is an ass-hat. In my defense, I’m only an ass-hat to Victoria. And don’t believe anyone who comments here saying that I’m an ass-hat to them. That’s just Victoria commenting under the name of someone I know in real life who I’m totally not an ass-hat to in any way, shape or form.

  • 2 hamburgers “animal style” from In-N-Out with avocado
  • Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries
  • Prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and tomato slices on La Brea Bakery’s whole grain bread
  • 337 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Organic red seedless grapes

If you haven’t tried a hamburger with avocado or prosciutto with fresh mozzarella, you’re missing out.

Grocery list #2

Another peek into my latest food conquests…

My not-so-secret problem

  • Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 11 brownies from the Apple Cafeteria (details in an upcoming post)
  • Belgian chocolate assortment

Grains & carbs

  • Kashi Whole Grain Flakes cereal
  • Kashi GoLean Crunch Honey Almond Flax cereal
  • Organic stuffing mix

Vegetarian assortment

  • Eggplant pesto
  • Tomato & basil hummus
  • Garlic mint cheese
  • Sweet jalapeno spread
  • Spinach bolani
  • Lentil bolani

Bolani is a super thin flat-bread that’s filled with spinach, lentil, pumpkin or potato and baked in a clay oven. I buy it at my local farmer’s market and it contains no meat or meat products. All you do is break off some bread and put on whatever sauces/spreads you think will taste good together. Then try to eat it quickly before anyone asks you for samples.

The garlic mint cheese sounds weird, but I see it getting the most use. It tastes pretty darn good as a base— just throw some sweet jalapeno or eggplant pesto on top and it’s good to go.

Food’s food

  • Organic strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Cherries
  • Navel oranges

Sweetish fish

  • Salmon filets
  • Lemon
  • Brown sugar

One weekend, I got it into my head that I was going to create a salmon recipe that utilized a citrus sauce/glaze. I’ll write the details on this later (complete with pictures).
