You all know the caveats--no popcorn, caramel, hard foods, carbonated drinks, corn on the cob, nuts, apples, kaki mochi (a Very, Very Bad Idea, especially on day 3), and generally any crunchy food that gives life meaning.
On the plus side, middle-agers are of legal drinking age, and a good red is a very effective yet tasty way to manage pain.
I've decided to ROCK my two-tone Kate-Spade pink bands, rinse-n-floss, and keep on eating. So here's what's cooking this week.
Sunday Breakfast for Dinner
Todd's biscuits with sausage gravy and eggs. I ate these with butter, lilikoi jam and then the gravy. It sounds gross, but the sweet/salty thing works for me. And the combo softens the biscuits just enough.
The Mystery Tupperware held the last of the Chicken Tortilla Soup. Good to the last drop.
Japanese Chicken Curry. Warm, soft. Happy.
Summer soba salad. One of my favorites from the summer menu.
I shall have to remember the rinse-n-floss drill after a noodles and arugula-filled dinner so I don't end up looking like Davey Jones reincarnated with a mouthful of green stringy stuff.
Sick and wrong fish. This is a very satisfying dinner.
Husband is the stir-fry master and this can get cooked in 30 flat.
Edamame hummus with not-pita chips
Yogurt, lots of it
Yogurtland, avoiding particularly toffee and mochi add-ins
Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, avoiding Chunky Monkey
Harmless Harvest coconut water
Odwalla Strawberry C Monster, Mango Tango and Mo Berry
Matcha Love Houji-cha milkshakes
Have a good crunchy week all. Only 50 more weeks to go!
