What’s Christie eating? #221

Posted on August 29, 2008 by ChristieFood News

I could never have guessed that so many people would be into this! For those of you who were embarrassed to contribute last time, get a load of this…

Breakfast: Slice of soy and linseed bread toasted and topped with 1 fried egg, 1 slice of cheese and BBQ sauce.
Notes: I’ve been sleeping badly for the past 3 nights. That’s my excuse.

Snack: Handful of unsalted cashews, brazil nuts, sultanas and dried apricots.

Lunch: Leftover frittata (egg, haloumi, pumpkin, spinach, cherry tomatoes) mixed with cos lettuce and balsamic vinegar.

Snack: Large slice of chocolate cake.
Notes: The Bear felt like cake, so I whipped one up this afternoon. I think it was the best cake I’ve ever made!

Dinner: (Soon to be eaten) Chinese Takeaway. Ham and chicken rolls, sweet and sour pork and special fried rice. Yum yum I’ll be going for a run.

Who feels like contributing now that I’ve shared my blow out? Not that anyone is judging… ;)

Happy eating, Christie

PREVIOUSLY on Christie eats: (Geddit?*)
The very first edition

*It’s a reference to LOST. I love that show. Am I a geek? No, don’t answer that.

  • I’ve had a day and a half, and just totally gave up by about 10am and cancelled today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

    breakfast – 3 slices of toast with tomato and philly cheese spread instead of butter (thank you Coles Online for the freebie).

    snack – can of pepsi max

    lunch – donut with chocolate icing and a cheese and bacon breadroll (or two).

    snack – cup of coffee

    dinner – smiths thinly cut crisps with the little savloy sausages.

    after dinner snack (which is now, it was a very early dinner) – two weetbix and muesli.

    I did alright at the not snacking in between meals.

    Very hard to think straight let alone prepare food when your 3.5yo is in non stop meltdown / freakout/ scream-a-thon mode.

  • Ok…let’s see!
    Breakfast: I bowl of porridge mixed with linseed, sunflower and almond. strawberries and plain Greek yogurt. Plus 2 long blacks with a dash of milk.

    Lunch: Puff pastry pizette topped with mozzarella, parmesan, tomatoes and rocket.

    Snack: packet of thin crisps (sour cream and onion…long day photographing!)

    Dinner: Pork and veal polpette with a Neapolitan sauce and wholemeal spaghetti.
    cucumber, spinach and rocket salad with a red wine vinaigrette!
    Dessert: Hmmm…a finger of Old Gold Dark chocolate with raspberry!

    This is fun…

  • Oooh, me play me play!

    breakfast :2 slices wheat free bread with poached egg and brown sauce.
    Lunch: Salad with runner beans, soy beans, fennel, lettuce and tomato with hummus. Various seeds thrown on top.
    Dinner: Going out for sushi – yay! After, there will be wine and chocolate truffles which my mum sent me as I am writing my dissertation – how cool is that?

  • They have soy and linseed bread?! Sounds yummy! And oh I’m so jealous of your haloumi cheese – it’s hard to find here! Let’s see…it’s just breakfast time here today, but I had a vanilla yogurt, half a rapoza mango (OMG the best mangoes I’ve ever had!), and a piece of locally made multi-grain toast. Now you’ve got me thinking about lunch already…

  • This is embarrassing…

    Breakfast – a small handful of unsalted almonds

    Lunch – skipped because DD had her riding lesson

    Snack – a can of Cajun spice Salmon from my SAFCO prize (it was really good and I normally don’t like canned anything). Right from the can.

    Dinner – (to be made yet) the first of our organic purple potatoes boiled (they are so gorgeous!), then lightly squashed and roasted , topped with Tofu Ricotta and herbs for me. I feel like wrong end of the horse my DD rode today and need to feel sorry for myself. The family will most likely have Chinese takeout. ;)

  • Marita – Some days are a write off, let’s face it. I don’t have children yet, so I’ve got the tantrums to look forward to (!?). Tomorrow will be better!

    Peter – You eat so well! Where did you get strawberries this time of year?

    Helen – Sushi, wine + truffles = love! Your Mum is a sweetheart. Glad you’re so excited about playing along.

    Michelle – Yes! It’s gorgeous. The brand is Burgen. I am sooooo jealous of your mango! Come on Summer!

    Colleen – I wouldn’t be embarrassed in the slightest about your organic purple potatoes. They sound absolutely divine! I’ve never had tofu ricotta…

    Keep ’em coming guys. This is so fun!

  • I think I would use up your broadband space if I told you! HAHAHAHAHA! But it included a lot of cookies.

  • Hmm, well today wasn’t a normal day in terms of eating, but here goes:

    Breakfast: Nothing, as I had an early-morning pilates class and forgot to bring an apple with me :( Nearly fainted after LOL.

    Lunch: The belated apple, a bowl of miso

    Snack: Too much cookie dough from the cookies I was supposed to be making for the mag I write for.

    Dinner: Homemade burgers (buns and all) also to be photographed and written up about for the mag.

    Interesting seeing what everyone gets up to…wish I ate like half of you do :D

  • Noble Pig – Haha, you’re funny! Mmmm cookies.

    Laura – Ahhhh, all in a hard day’s work for a food writer! :) Cookie dough? There’s a theme here…

  • How fun! This is for a day when I eat at home. When I go out, it’s quite different of course :)

    Weak tea and toast :( My tummy’s sulking. If you remember what I normally eat, you’ll understand why.

    Lunch: Small box of hot chips from fish markets

    Dinner: 6 killpatrick pacific oysters, 12 natural Sydney rock oysters.
