WTF Tuesday

Bob's Red Mill Quick Cooking Oats with lots of Raisins for breakfast...
Common Market Eggless Egg Salad (on leftover LPQ bread) for lunch..
Homemade Chili for dinner...
2 Tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil 
1 Large Yellow Onion, chopped 
1 Green Pepper, chopped
1 Jalapeno chopped 
4 Garlic Cloves, minced 
4 1/2 Teaspoons Chili Powder 
2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin 
1 Tube of Gimme Lean Beef 
1 Can (15.5 ounces) Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained 
1 Can (15.5 ounces) Pinto Beans, rinsed and drained 
1 Can (28 ounces) Diced Tomatoes 
Chocolate Cake with Ganache for dessert...
Instead of saying 'Off I go', I'll just say 'Good Night', because I'm not going anywhere for at least two more days.

Woah girl, don't go TOO crazy with those raisins there.

Sarah said...

Your raisins look really plump and fresh... my raisins are always dried out and sad. I guess that means I should just invest in a new box? I love when you repurpose the LPQ bread for lunch. It always looks so delicious... crusty bread is definitely my fav. Nice looking dinner too, I love when you include recipes in your posts :)

Still jealous of your WFH status for the next two days. Kind of a bummer that you have to go in on Friday though.

lots of mushy looking things today. Nice.
And a recipe! Don't know if you've ever shared a personal SV family recipe before.

Ingrid said...

Yum, your chili recipe sounds great! How are the conditions near you? Does Mr SVeg get to stay home, too? I hope it has been more of a stay-cation than a burden!

I love how the LPQ bread is also an assortment of different kinds, and perfect for your open faced sandwiches! The chili sounds great- i bet the spice warms you up fast. I've actually never tried that gimme lean, i'm fickle about faux meats.
The cake still looks great- especially the frosting!

If its any reassurance i've eaten from hundreds of salad bars in nyc and haven't caught the plauge yet ;)

I covet your olives every single time you post them.

Hey Now!!!!

Hannah, the Raisins are methodically placed on the Oatmeal as a result of my picking them off one by one from the big sticky clump in the box.

Sarah, this is the first box of Raisins I have not kept in the fridge after opening and they are better. Wegman's Organic. Really good. It is a bummer having to go into work on Friday. I'm dreading it very much.

FF, not an official Chili recipe, just what was put into the pot last night when trying to follow an actual recipe: https://www.yahoo.com/food/everyday-food-have-no-fear-keep-your-new-years-72797877376.html

Ingrid, it's just regular WFH days, but the ice is melting at a good pace. It's so warm now, there's no need for a jacket. Yes, Mr. SV is home.

Unknown, thanks for the reassurance about the Salad Bar germs. I always wondered about those NYC Salad Bars. They are so huge with tons of gourmet-looking stuff. Really impressive.

Abby, the Olives are so delicious. They're some mystery mix from the WF's Olive Bar. The Olives never appear to be labeled accurately based on what I'm looking at and what I'm reading.
