Friday, December 13th

A Banana Chia Pod for breakfast....
While I appreciate the biodegradable container, the contents weren't as great as LPQ's Chia Pudding and I'm not feeling the desire to buy it again..
Ize's 'Vegan Sandwich' $5.99 Hummus, Lettuce, Tomato, Sprouts and Onions on a Pumpernickel Bagel for lunch...
Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute, Imagine Mushroom Gravy and Wegman's Sautéed Shredded Brussels Sprouts for dinner...
No dessert again tonight. I guess if I feel able to avoid dessert, I should do it.

Too bad the chia pudding was disappointing but the container/pod is adorable!! That sandwich looks incredible though, especially with all of that deliciousness crammed between a pumpernickel bagel. Soooo good! I love shredded brussels sprouts, the texture of that cut is really great! Good looking meals all around :) Have a great weekend!

I agree with Sarah; that container is so cute. You could probably start making yr own in the little LPQ jars. Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?
I find bagel sandwiches delicious (for obvious reasons) but impossible to eat!! They are SOOOo frustratingly messy! Hope you survived.

I tried those chia pod puddings at a whole foods tasting table thingy a while back! It was good enough but..... My chia pudding is better..... This funny chia novice lady started chatting me up after i asked a few questions and i ended up emailing her a few links to vegan blogs with chia pudding recipes, convincing her they are "ohmygod soooo much better" with coconut milk vs her regular milk.
Anyways. Hopefully she saw The Vegan Milk Light.

Lunch looks waaaaaayyyy better than yesterday's. My sprout envy is renewed. I like what you did with the dinner veggies- looks like a delicious pile.
Mulled wine/glogg is the best part of winter for the few of us anti-eggnog types.

I have never had chia pudding but we have a bag of chia seeds in the kitchen. I think I may use some in my next granola. That sandwich is the real standout here, but I agree with FF that bagel sandwiches can be hard to eat. Did it stay together?

And hello. :-)

I tried one of those chia pods in New York and was really disappointed by how bland it was. Double painful, actually, because I think it's an Aussie company.

I really need to up my game on the "Lunch with Mom" guesses. Nonetheless, delicious looking bagel sandwich and pickle!

Any holiday cooking / baking /purchasing happening at your house?

Hey Now!!!!

Sarah, thanks! I hope you have a good weekend as well!

FF, no worries on the Three Rs here. I never throw out anything and will eat food that is years old rather than toss it. Keeping my Bagelwich together was the least of all my issues.

Unknown, maybe I'll try 'setting up' some Chia Pudding myself tomorrow. I just always forget till it's the morning and I have no breakfast ideas. I'm still surprised how bad that Xmas lunch was. In fact, I may still be trying to digest it. Mulled wine/glogg is on my radar. Must have that together by Xmas Eve for watching old movies.

Miss Rachel, so strange that you and FF are having difficulty with the Bagel Sandwiches. I've never had that issue. Perhaps I'm not as 'dainty' as you two or else the Bagels are larger up in NY/CT? Oh, and Hello. I hadn't forgotten you.

Hannah, I didn't want to point out the Aussie connection. At least you still have Vegemite, Yarra Valley Chocolate and Hugh Jackman to be proud of.

Ingrid, I only intend to make Chia Pudding and Mulled Wine this holiday. No Cookies, Braids or RIngs in the offing. It sounds like you have some traditional baking planned?
