Scaredy Cat Foods

Hey friends! Happy Thursday to you.

Here’s a teaser photo for today’s post – any guesses what this is? All will be revealed shortly…or at the end of this post. lol

It seems I may be getting sick. I’ve been trying to fight it off all week, but I felt a lot worse today.

I made a simple bowl of oats with bananas on top.

Oatmeal confession – I don’t like bananas cooked into oatmeal. I don’t really like whipped banana oats, unless I’m using really ripe bananas. I don’t care much for bananas that have been sliced and added to oats while they’re cooking. I pretty much only like them if I stir them in at the very end and cook them just long enough to warm through or served on top of cooked oats. It’s a texture thing. I know…I’m weird.

I’m in full-on get-well mode right now.

This means lots of healthful eats. For lunch #1, I had some vegetable soup, whole wheat toast and a veggie juice.

Oh yea!

For lunch #2, I had take out from a local Chinese restaurant – egg drop soup.

I love these little crispy things they serve with soup.

For the main event, I had some chicken and mixed vegetables. I asked for light oil and butter, but not sure if I actually got it. It didn’t taste much lighter, but who knows. I’ll choose to think positively.

Anywho, growing up, my family often gave me Chinese food when I was feeling bad. I guess they thought the brothy soup and mixture of meats and veg would help me get well sooner. It always seemed to work, so I keep the tradition.

I probably would have cooked something comfort-food-y tonight like chicken and dumplings, but hubby already had purchased some sushi grade tuna.

Hubby grilled it with some sauce he got at the fish monger’s place.

I’m not too big on food that’s supposed to be served rare or raw (some sushi is ok to me, but I still prefer cooked), but this was really good. I must admit, I was a bit afraid to eat it, but it wasn’t too bad. I know…scaredy cat! hahaha

Did I tell you guys I got a new Cascal flavor!? This is a crisp white Cascal (with notes of pear, apricot and magnolia).

I’m so glad I tried these at Foodbuzz because I’m not sure I ever would have purchased them otherwise. I’m really loving them.

As for that dessert…I decided to make Not So Sweet brownie bakes for 2 – one for me, one for hubby.

They were so good, I ended up eating both mine and hubby’s. lol

Recipe coming soon.

And update on the coconut cream pie, I’m planning to make that for a super bowl party on Sunday, so if all goes well, I’ll be posting the recipe early next week! Yay! Get your firm silken tofu, coconut milk, and shredded coconut ready!

What foods are you afraid to eat?

    That looks like my kind of pudding! I would look forward to the recipe but it’ll be highly unlikely if I can get Hershey’s ingredient…perhaps they’ll be an alternate?!
    Im afraid of trying anything slimy…especially oysters…I feel like I need to have tried them at least once, it’s the glamorous thing to do right? But they just look like giant balls of snot to me!!! lol

    I love yor blog but I hate that you take so long to post your recipes!
    Recipes don’t have to be perfect all the time! Let us be the judges for once!!! Again I puffy heart your bog but all the promising is getting a bit annoying, specially because you mention the same recipe over and over and tell us how much you enjoy it but we don get to try it.
    I appreciate the time and effort you put into this blog and i don’t mean to be a pain… it’s just that I’m losing interest in your blog =/ but I decided not to leave without a fight!!!! =)
    Oh! And yes!!! I know you are a perfectionist!!!

    I’m exactly the same with oatmeal! i don’t get the obsession with whipping it in. If I’m going to have banana, it’s gotta be cold on top!

    OMG i seriously neeeeeed that brownie recipe! will you post it soon?

    Yummy looking dinner! I love sushi fish that is prepared in grill variations.

    I am afraid to try frog legs and chicken feet. Just cannot do it. I have tried some really random food items, but I have to draw the line somewhere.

    Feel better soon! I am super sick too and am on my second night of Chinese takeout for dinner. Can’t beat those soups when sick!

      I did try Chicken feet once. It was totally not my thing. I was really scared to eat it, but I did it. At least I can say I gave it a shot I suppose? lol Hope you feel better as well! :)
