dinner of champions

sometimes when you've--and when i say "you," i mean "i"-- are just getting home from the gym at a somewhat late hour and are just coming off a weekend of hosting a (very low maintenance) houseguest and throwing a wee appetizer pre-party, not to mention the fact that you've just washed just about every dish in your house, the preparation of dinner seems entirely daunting. any sort of preparation, as minimal as cooking pasta, seems insurmountable, especially with no microwave to be had. and so you are left with only the food in your fridge, cold. and tonight, dear readers, things were particularly grim. i present my dinner:

yes, that's right. leftover sweetlife brownie cheesecake, a bag of carrots and a can of diet coke. of course, this wasn't remotely filling, so i have, so far, added on to it:

  • three crackers with lox and herbed cheese spread
  • one mini "quorn" sandwich
  • four green olives
  • the remaining four bites of ginger tofu leftover from last week's lunch out at the thai place
  • a glass of soy milk mixed with eggnog
  • a multi-vitamin
does this count as "several small meals throughout the day instead of three big meals"?

do the green olives count as a green vegetable -- otherwise, that food group is sadly lacking

I wasn't very hungry last night so I just snacked on whatever was around... my dinner was popcorn, pistachios, green olives and litchi juice.

hey srah. hmmm....i think your dinner beats mine -- it sounds almost healthy. in its own special way.

thanks! i am trying to not be ashamed of my lapses in good cooking. as for the quorn, it was an experiment and, you know, it's not so bad. tastes just like those chicken patties i used to eat for lunch in high school. not that those were particularly good. and its a good source of protein. hmmm...i haven't convinced myself. oh dear.

Sometimes those kinds of dinners are the best kinds. :)

hey sweetnicks,
yeah, they are, aren't they? the comfort of crap, i guess.

Aah, leftovers... where would we be without them? When there's nothing in the cupboard but a sack of rice, worcestershire sauce and a tin of Chinese pickled lettuce, even your housemate's six-day-old lasagne looks pretty damn good.

Anyway, that meal looked healthy enough - sure, the chemicals in the diet Coke may fry your brain, but if you eat the brownie slice fast enough you erase some of the calories, and you can't get anything more vegetabley than a carrot.

Just one question though deepfry; what on earth is 'quorn'?

hey misanthrope! quorn is one of those processed high protein fake meat products. it's somewhat chicken-like...and its a fungus. i wouldn't eat the stuff on a regular basis (despite claims that is is exceptionally nutritious) or anything but it reminds me of the chicken patties i ate almost daily for lunch during high school.
