Double stacked! Everything is two high.
Mini quiches; edamame (soy bean pods); vegetarian/vegetable rolls; pack of soy sauce
So I whipped up some mini-quiches yesterday using my best approximation of how to do that. I used wonton wrappers for the shells and pre-baked those, then added a mixture of egg, salt, pepper, three cheese blend and shredded broccoli/carrot stems. I learned a few things - probably would make it easier had I cooked the broccoli/carrot mixture first, softened it up a bit, because it was a little hard spooning them into the shells without getting drops of egg everywhere as I tried to squish the strips into the shells, haha. Also, it turns out, I don't like quiche all that much and I'm not sure why. I love eggs, I love cheese, I love broccoli, so how could putting all of them together in little mini shells (which I was OK with) make them something I only find alright tasting? I have a decent number left so those will wind up being lunch this week as I struggle from lack of planning. I was unable to go grocery shopping this weekend and am staring at a fridge full of mishmash uncooked (I also had no time to cook what's in my fridge... mostly because of what prevented me from going grocery shopping. Whee!).
I don't have a lunch bento for today (that's dinner) because I decided to head to a cheap sport to check out their $3 sandwich. Damn that thing was huge and I'm super full now :)
Oh... and I'm beginning to feel nauseous, light headed, dizzy, headachey, exhausted... I'm pretty sure I officially am anemic. I'll try to go to the doctor this weekend to verify this, but I have been and continue to be really busy so that might not be an option. Grrrrrrr. What am I not eating that regular vegetarians eat to maintain their iron levels? Besides iron supplements. Seriously. Enough vegetarians swear they can eat enough to be well balanced and nourished properly! And please don't tell me spinach, although I have two big bundles in my fridge right now that will get the rinse treatment soon and will be devoured with some garlic and lemon juice. Yummm!
Think outside the lunchbox!
