The Girl Who Ate Everything

Blogging about food and whatever since 2004.


The new livejournal community Cookumentary is perfect for someone like me who barely knows how to cook.

For dinner I cooked red swiss chard and red onions, resulting in a lot of veggies swimming around in red pigment. I don't mind cooking the same way every day (sautee, splodge on some seasoning, eat), but it's rather unadventurous.

And I ate too much today. Many coffee candies were dissolved. I ate one miniature Kit Kat, and I think two mini stroopwafels. I have no idea how many sugar plums I adte, but they're the size of bloated cherries (each one is probably like eating two cherries) so I'd say around 10. I ate a peach that while soft, sadly din't have much flavor. Somewhat randomly, I shared a cannoli with my mum, which we got from a cart at the Ridgewood Farmer's Market that mainly sells mozzerella. Neither of us are big fans of Italian food/pastries (she LOVES tiramisu, though) but the cannoli was worth trying. I wouldn't choose it over cake, or muffins, or scones, or cookies, but ye's good.

Oh, I also bought a hamantashen from the farmer's market. I LOVE HAMANTASHEN! LOVE LOVE! SO GOOD! I love poppy seed! More things need poppy seed! The one I bought didn't have orange juice in it, the kind which I prefer, but it was still oh so delicious. I know it's not really a cookie but I CALL IT A COOKIE, thus it is one of my favorite cookies.

Oh. So. For lunch I had a lot of bread with olive oil, some sugar plums, and a slice of bread with muenster cheese. It's my favorite melty cheese and I haven't eaten it in maybe more than 10 years (honestly, I have no idea). I used to eat it semi-frequently as a kid (keep in mind I didn't eat much cheese overall) and it's one of those things that still tastes good. For something that doens't taste as good, I used to eat scrambled egg sandwiches nearly every day when I was in grade school. Eh. (It was really easy for my mum to pack for me, I guess.) I'm sad to find out that American muenster cheese is the poop; yup, it's super bland. It has some taste, of course, but I'm not surprised that it's supposed to have more. To do: eat real muenster cheese.

At around 11 PM I felt like getting a snack for some reason. ALERT: LATE NIGHT SNACKS ARE VERY BAD. Was I hungry? Am I ever? Nope, wasn't hungry, just kind of hobbled down to the kitchen and ended up eating some potato chips my brother got from Whole Foods (note: Satan's grocery store is completely filled with potato chips) and another slice of toast and muenster cheese. And the aforementioned peach.

Lordy. I better walk off some of this tomorrow. :| I must seriously be gaining lots of weight; my attempts to lose weight have been futile, considering how I haven't really been trying. Every time I think I can, a new fun fooding thing comes along. I had no excuse for eating so much today though.
