Friday Eats

in All Posts

My friend Isaac g-chatted me to say, “Don’t hang out outside for too long today.  There’s an intense solar flare going on, according to NPR.”  Of course that meant that I immediately walked outside and looked up at the sun.  I couldn’t help it!


I’ll admit. I had to Google ‘solar flare’ to figure out exactly what was going on. All I care about is that it sounds summery and warm (and the sun looked like it always does; unfortunately, it was not actually flaming in the sky*). 


A solar flare calls for ice cream.


And ice cream makes the baby dance.


Here are (some) of my eats for the day:


A very delicious salad with hard-boiled eggs and brown rice crackers with cream cheese.  Crackers times a copious amount.

The aforementioned fro-yo.


And a very easy dinner.  This was a lazy person’s dinner.


Best thing I ate all day?  The fro-yo, of course.  But those cream cheese crackers run a close second.


What’s the tastiest thing you ate today?


*Please note that I did not actually think the sun was going to be flaming in the sky.  But that would’ve been pretty cool.  Minus any catastrophic environmental consequences.

    I am loving your footnote!! And while your froyo looks fan-flippin-tastic, so does your salad — yum!!

  • Jacalyn January 27, 2012, 8:15 pm

    oh man! I haven’t had frozen yogurt in months! I must go get some tomorrow. Your picture looked delicious. Today I only got 1 meal since I was scrubbed in surgery all day. It was vietnamese noodles with vegetarian egg rolls. YUUUUUM!

  • Nena January 27, 2012, 8:24 pm

    the tastiest thing for me today? My sister made chicken fettucini alfredo which I had with a glass of wine, and Harris Teeter’s double chocolate cake. OMG yum! It’s friday! Splurge night. 🙂

  • Natalie @fitjamericangirl January 27, 2012, 8:29 pm

    The best thing I ate today? Chinese takeout of general tso’s tofu. Not healthy at all. But man was it good.

  • JenRD January 27, 2012, 8:29 pm

    I finally tried your recipe for steamed greens, and it was delicious! I used the TJ’s bag of mixed greens, and served them with grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Total comfort food!

  • Chelsea January 27, 2012, 8:46 pm

    Menchies (sp?)! We have one by my house as well and it is verrry good <3 Their red velvet cake is DELICIOUS.

  • Jen G. January 27, 2012, 8:50 pm

    I made Mama Pea’s Better Bay Biscuits (which are essentially a vegan version of Red Lobster’s biscuits). I may or may not have eaten 3 1/2 of them in approximately five minutes.

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb January 27, 2012, 8:58 pm

    tastiest thing i ate today was a brown rice veggie roll at dinner!! love the flavor brown rice adds to sushi.

    happy the baby got some fro yo 🙂

  • Tiffany January 27, 2012, 9:03 pm

    I made mama peas falafel recipe today and it was incredible! Ate that along side some hummus, mediterranean chicikpea salad and some homemade whole wheat pita chips! YUM!

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

  • Angela @ Happy Fit Mama January 27, 2012, 9:11 pm

    It must be a Mama Peas type of day ’cause I made Roasted Chickpea Tacos. A household favorite! Of course, we had to make Nacho Mmmm Sauce to go with it. The two tastiest foods of the day!

  • Caroline H. January 27, 2012, 9:15 pm

    We chowed down on some mighty tasty Thai food tonight: curried veggies over rice. Finished it off with a bit o’ Nutella on a piece of toast. Battling food coma now.

  • Colleen January 27, 2012, 9:20 pm

    I have to say it was the vanilla cupcake with raspberry buttercream frosting I had for lunch. It was yummy.

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 27, 2012, 9:22 pm

    ahhhh this makes me want fro yo AND crackers!

  • Jen January 27, 2012, 9:41 pm

    Best thing I ate today? It’s not even food…I must admit that the coffee my office roomie brought me this morning was pretty epic. It was just your average coffee with milk and sugar, but it was piping hot and gave me that extra kick in the pants that I needed.

  • Lindsey January 27, 2012, 10:20 pm

    My green monster shake I had for breakfast OR my coffee that I drank along side it 🙂

  • Emily January 27, 2012, 10:24 pm

    I ate a tasty spinach and mixed greens salad with sunflower seeds, red onion, topped with a vegan Boca buger for protein, homemade balsamic vinaigrette and complete with my favorite salad topper of all time: a hand full of sun dried tomatoes. Taking healthy eating one day at a time!

  • Lili January 27, 2012, 10:48 pm

    Best thing I’ve had today: i made this white bean chili soup by Chelsey :


    Btw- love your disclaimer at the end of the post 😀

  • Hillary January 27, 2012, 10:51 pm

    I’ve never even heard of a solar flare. Weird!

    I just celebrated Baltimore Restaurant Week tonight—best meal I’ve had all year. Grilled calamari, monkfish osso bucco, and bakalava. So full, so worth it.

  • ashley @ ashley's adventures in alaska January 27, 2012, 11:19 pm

    Tastiest thing of the day was a spaghetti squash lasagna. It was soooooo good I couldn’t believe it was squash instead of pasta!

  • Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) January 27, 2012, 11:36 pm

    Best thing I ate today = warm brownie w/ chocolate pb swirl ice cream. Ice cream makes my baby dance too! 🙂

  • AikoVenus January 28, 2012, 1:43 am

    Mm, all of these look so good – especially the salad! ^^ The tastiest thing that I had today was breakfast – I had homemade cocoa crispy cereal with (healthy) chocolate sauce. ^^

  • Anna Crouch January 28, 2012, 3:08 am

    Uuuuggghhhh…I need some froyo now! At midnight. Lol….after they’re all closed.

    The best thing I ate yesterday was pineapple chicken curry at a restaurant! It was incredible – I swear I went to bed dreaming about it. 😀

  • Catherine January 28, 2012, 8:41 am

    We went out for frozen yogurt last night too! While waiting in line and scanning the options, I said to my fiance, “I love that you can actually get something really healthy here, ” thinking of the tart yogurt with berries… then once I had my cup in hand I proceeded to fill it with cookies&cream and cake batter yogurt, topped with oreos and cookie dough bits. Mmmm. What can you do? 😀

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife January 28, 2012, 9:01 am

  • Emily January 28, 2012, 12:23 pm

    I really, really want your fro-yo. Are those Reese’s Pieces in there? I’m trying so hard to eat healthfully, but all I’ve wanted lately is ice cream!

  • Amber K January 28, 2012, 2:48 pm

    Mmm that fro yo looks delicious! The only thing I’ve eaten today is breakfast, but overnight oatmeal with an apple and chocolate peanut butter is just about the tastiest thing ever!

  • etsy stalkers January 28, 2012, 9:00 pm

    do two glasses of wine count as food?

  • Ashley January 28, 2012, 9:06 pm
