If you know me, you know I have some food weirdness. I don’t see it that way, I see it as I like what I like and I get sick from most other things. I’m guessing that my food sensitivities have something to do with my non-existent desire to cook fancy dishes. Oh please, who am I kidding? I love simple, delicious foods! Personally, I think I’m lucky! Breakfast anything, pasta anything and fruit and veggie anything. Easy to please, and I don’t get bored with my faves. To you foodies out there, this might be blasphemy but it is the truth – I really only eat ten foods. Here’s the rundown;
I eat about a dozen eggs per week – I freaking love the little suckers! My roommate laughs at me because I crave eggs like a mad woman, when I want them, nothing else will do! Sunny side up with toast is my fave, close second is hard-boiled and scrambled are in third place on the regular menu de chez Nukem. Sometimes I’ll cook an egg in a red pepper and an onion and put it on an English Muffin. Deviled eggs? Don’t even get me started on how good these are. You get the point, I love eggs, and I eat a lot of them.
Eggs are separate from my love of breakfast food.. sort of? I love French toast, waffles, pancakes, crepes, bacon, eggs, fresh fruit, oatmeal, cereal, quiche, etc. LOVE it all! That’s a no brainer.
Pasta – another staple, although not what it used to be. For more than a year in college, food made me sick. No joke – I ate pasta and sandwiches for more than a year because those were the only dishes that didn’t have me running to bathroom between classes. It was rough, but no food allergies were identified. What was identified? A serious love of pasta – even plain noodles with a good olive and parmesan – makes me happy. Now, I’ve limited my pasta intake to every other week. I stopped buying it as often in hopes my dietary desires would expand. I eat eggs now, slight improvement?
Here’s the point of this post – my eating is totally strange. I eat the same dinner four nights out of the week because its what I’m craving at the end of the day. I vary my lunches more than my dinners – yogurt, hummus, sandwiches, frozen things, pasta, quesadillas, couscous, throw some shrimp with any of those, and I’m a happy camper. What I don’t do? Make dinners.
In less than a month, Leo and I move in, big life stuff for sure. Going out on a limb here, Leo won’t be so happy with over-easy eggs and toast four nights out of the week!
I’ve been watching some of these other blogger ladies and stockpiling recipes, shouldn’t be a problem cooking any of them, but I hope my tummy troubles stay FAR away. For my dishes, I might have to eliminate most of the meat, but a dash of meat hasn’t seemed to bother me lately and I want to make sure Leo is well-fed when I cook. He’s a carnivore fur sure, have you seen that facial hair? Requires meat.
Janetha’s Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas (Leo is Mexican and his mom makes delicious food, hopefully I pass the taste test!)
Breaking down the Big Beige Box’s Eggplant Parm (read the recipe and how she prepares it, then laugh because this girl is hilarious.)
Paige Spicer’s World’s Easiest Vegetable Lasagna (if I cook like her, I hope to be able to run like her. Oh, and read the title, PERFECT.)
Everything on Rachel Wilkerson’s blog – the girl thinks like me, eats like me and lives in sin like I will be in a few weeks. I dig her for sure.
So maybe only one of these has meat but if it is tasty enough, Leo will never see the non-meatness coming. Unless he reads this little blog thing. Hmmmm, this will be interesting.
