What I Ate Wednesday

Forgot about these the past two weeks, oops.

I’ve had cold brewed coffee a few times before, most recently in Minnesota at Overflow Cafe.  I Googled how to make it myself and it turns out it is super easy.  All you do is put the coffee grounds and cold water into a french press and leave it in the fridge overnight.  Then in the morning you just plunge, pour and add your cream and sugar!  If you don’t have a french press you can leave it overnight in any sort of container, but straining out the grounds is a bit more complicated.  Who keeps cheese cloth handy?  I certainly don’t.

Breakfast: homemade cold press coffee, watermelon and a giant amoxicillin pill (only a few days left!)

What I Ate Wednesday

A day of eats from Topeka.  Apologies for the poor quality iPhone pictures from my desk.

When I woke up this morning, I wasn’t terribly excited for hotel breakfast or very hungry so I stopped at Starbucks for an iced coffee.  I ended up with a morning bun as well that I picked at throughout the morning.

Breakfast 20130619Lunch was a chicken wrap with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers and spicy sauce from the cafeteria.

Lunch 20130619Since I didn’t have a snack I was pretty hungry when dinner time rolled around. I headed out to Blue Moose.  I’ve been there a few times over the course of my travels here but I have to say this was probably one of the best meals I’ve had there.  I need to figure out how to recreate this sauce.

Lunch from Wendy’s: Spicy Chicken sandwich and french fries

Lunch 20130522Dinner: Chicken with onion, frozen peas and carrots in indian simmer sauce.  The sauce is butter chicken and was a new flavor for us.  I thought it was good, a bit sweet almost.  Served alongside basmati rice and the last of the cauliflower rice from the other day mixed in.

Dinner 20130522

Off to go for our new ritual of an evening walk! And by new I mean we’ve gone on a walk the past two nights on the trails around our neighborhood.  I’ve found it to a nice way to unwind and spend some time together doing something active instead of mindlessly watching TV.  Not that we have to go everyday, but I hope we can make it a habit to do something active together a few days a week.
