I surprised myself.

 (Dinner... before.)

(Dinner... after.)

I found motivation.  I guess I do cook for myself when Lee is out of town.  But this isn't really cooking.  Salad = pre-washed spinach + tabouli + tomato slices.  Sweet potato = microwaved for 5 minutes + maple syrup + S&P.  Steamed broccoli (I actually turned on the stove for this one).  Fake chik'n tenders = open package + microwave for 1.5 minutes (the chik'n tenders are better cooked in a pan on the stove but that was too much work).  And there you have it!  Dinner is served!

Have you ever microwaved a sweet potato?  I'm sure it nukes some of the nutrients but it's so quick and easy and it tastes soooo goooood, especially with a little sweet (maple syrup) and a little salty (Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper).

Do you ever eat fake meat products (Taco Bell doesn't count :-)?  I used to all the time when I was a Saint vegetarian.  Now... not so much.  It's not that I don't like that stuff... it's just that Lee doesn't!

  1. Funny because I NEVER microwave anything but last night I was sooo hungry for mashed sweet potatoes in the middle of the rest of my dinner prep so I went ahead and nuked em. They were mighty tasty. :) I don't do fake meat products...I guess if I'm REALLY craving meat I'll just go for the locally grown organic real stuff :) Your dinner looks good to me!!!!
