So, it would appear that when you prepare enough food to last you through three to four days of hurricaning, you're going to being eating the same food for three to four days.
Everything has been the same. The one difference yesterday was that I didn't eat dinner, opting instead to get unfortunately toasty on gin and juice.
And so this morning, after my water, coffee, and gingerade kombucha (to hydrate, wake me up, and settle my stomach, respectively) I was dreaming about dinner. A hearty, comfort food dinner. The first thing that came to mind was grilled cheese and that thought settled decidedly. I don't often get cravings for food like that but when I do, I'd like to do it right. On my 15 minute break, I ran to Whole Foods, picked up an onion, tomato, some FYH Vegan Cheddar, and some Early Bird Multi Seed bread. Somehow, with lots of water, tabbouleh and salad, a peach, and the promise of a good dinner, I made it through the day.
So, with leftover lentil soup and an Amish dill pickle:
Okay, I can't really allow myself comfort food. I cooked it in the oven, so technically this is a baked cheese sandwich, but it was still really good. FYH melts better than this but I didn't want it to get too gooey. I also spread one side of the bread with the basil hummus from the other day, as I've heard of vegan quesadillas made with hummus and I thought the basil would lend a nice flavor. I was so stuffed I couldn't even eat the salad! That's saved for lunch tomorrow.
Do you have a favorite, ahem, recuperative food? Or are you all more responsible with the juice than I am?
PS - I just signed up for this vegan swap, if anyone else is interested. I've wanted to do one of these recently, but Lindsey is way more on top of things than I am.
