Meatless Tuesday: Week 13

Oh my friends, I was down and out on Tuesday. I think I might have had a sinus infection or something but I was wiped out.  I slept for 12 hours (well, woke up at 5:30 a.m. to realize that I really didn’t have any energy to move), and slept some more during the day, AND then another 8 hours Tuesday night.  Came Wednesday morning, I was still pretty wiped out.  Oy!

So, I didn’t have breakfast on Tuesday…


  • Homemade “cream” of mushroom soup. Essentially I just throw all of my veggies in a pot: cremini mushrooms, onion, garlic, thyme. I didn’t bother to blend the soup. Just added  cream and call it a lunch. LOL.
  • Melted brie on a slice of sourdough bread



  • I was determined to make this Thai pesto for my March challenge.  Again, throw everything in a blender and made a small batch of pasta to toss in it.
  • Stole some of Brandon’s waffle fries from Chic-Fil-A.


Satisfaction level: blah. I didn’t crave any meat but the blah-ness probably is from being sick.

Thoughts: I know that I said I was exhausted but yet I managed to cook TWO homemade meals?  Yeah, I know. Weird, right?  Well, there was nothing else in the house I could eat that would be vegetarian and nutritious.  I mean, I could’ve had Top Ramen or a can of soup but I did have all of these ingredients I was going to cook with if I wasn’t sick anyway.  I thought I might as well while I had the energy spurts.  After all, making soup means I can sit down and rest in between, and making pesto was just a whirr away.
