My internet went on hiatus last night, so ya’ll get a two for one deal this evening… get excited!
Yesterday, I had a work lunch at Pizza Factory (yeah, yeah, I know I eat there a lot!)
In an effort to spice up one phoodfoto, one of my phood phans helped create the “action shot” below:
A phella treated me to dinner at Robata in Carmel.
I went with the steamed veggies (simple but tasty), Mushroom Madness (way too large a portion but awfully good) and the Nikumaki (I remember this being a lot better in the past).
He had the Volcano special, which I sampled but found I wasn’t a phan.
Today, I went with a color theme to get into the Valentine’s Day mood. So RED it was!
Wallaby black cherry yogurt and cranberry juice for breakfast, followed by a Red Anjou pear and raspberries for lunch…
Pops and I made dinner, and tried our best to keep the red theme going without buying any new ingredients.
We came up with Buffalo Drumsticks atop a “red rice” mixture of brown rice, red wine, mushrooms, yellow bell pepper, beet juice and a little cream cheese. I know it may sound odd, but it was pretty tasty, if I do say so myself!
We finished up with cranberry sauce for good measure…
So while I will not claim that I ate all red foods today for nutrition reasons, I do recognize that “eating the rainbow” is a good plan when trying to get a variety of vitamins, antioxidants and what have you. I went to find an article to post on the topic, but instead stumbled upon what is quite possibly the WORST song ever written. So if you’re so inclined (and I would really only recommend clicking this link if, say, you have Justin Bieber’s “Baby, Baby” song stuck in your head or you’re locked in a room of crying babies and the only escape is listening to this song…) enjoy it for all it’s “grooviness”:
Tomorrow, phoodfotos returns to Portland for a weekend of excitement. Stay tuned!
