Let’s Get Real

by HEAB on February 23, 2011

OK, so one of the reasons I don’t normally share all my eats with you is because they can be really random, weird, or just plain ugly. Wanna see?

Yesterday for lunch, I made another socca crust pizza. The crust contained fresh basil, and I topped my pizza with nutritional yeast and Applegate Farms Pepperoni. Love their big pepperoni slices!

HEABified Pepperoni Pizza

I scarfed down 2 pieces and ate something else, I can’t remember…probably some chocolate, but what I really wanted was a granola cheesecake bite – need to make more of those!  Summer and I then ran errands, and by the time we got home, she was hungry as was mama. So, I grabbed a 3rd piece of pizza and literally walked upstairs to the nursery with it hanging out of my mouth while carrying Summer, her pacifier, and a bottle full of pumped breast milk. There is probably a bit of crust still sitting upstairs somewhere. Can’t seem to remember where I put it.

Summer now falls asleep right around dinner time, and there isn’t much time to cook these days unless we wait until after she goes to sleep. So, last night, CD browned himself some beef and then helped me bathe Summer, read her a bedtime story, and put her to bed. By the way, this is her new favorite book…


I highly recommend this book to all new moms. A reader told me about it (thanks reader!), and it’s the only book that Summer will pay attention to cover to cover, something about the bold black, white, and red pictures. In fact, she liked it so much, she tried to eat it. 😉

Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, dinner. CD ate his beef while I ate this completely random and unattractive (but rather tasty) meal…


My last piece of pizza with leftover curried lentil casserole.

Another weird combo that I can’t seem to get enough of these days…


Rolled oats cooked with water with cinnamon, turmeric, and ginger and topped with chopped unsweetened Baker’s chocolate and tahini. Dearest tahini, I am sorry I abandoned you for months and months. So glad you are back in my life b/c you drizzle ever so nicely atop my oats. Love the surface area coverage – more butta per bite.

So see, my life is not filled with picture perfect meals, and hats off to those bloggers who feature all their eats while managing to make them look so beautiful and delicious. You inspire me. Tell me, are there others out there who eat salmon straight from the can, find granola crumbs in their bed, and have walked around with bits of melted chocolate on the seat of their pants? 😉
