Something I will teach my kids

Thanks J.K. Rowling!

Dinner time at Chez a Peach

Omg you guys I hate dieting!!! It's so fucked up! All day I dream about mowin! But I've noticed something kinda funny since I began my Vegas diet yesterday (4 day diet!)- I photograph my healthy meals so much more than I do my mow attacks! I realized it's because I'm just less eager to grub on a tuna salad than on say... A pizza cone?! It's like, as soon as I pick up my to-go Thai patio order, I'm already mow-wowing before I even think about photographing my conquest! And my fridge raids are pretty spontaneous so the camera isn't always around. So anyblaze, tonight I whipped up a spicy tuna salad and served it over a bed of mixed greens, sliced tomatoes, and cucumbers. Drizzled it with a little olive oil and red wine vinegar.
I usually throw whatever fresh herbs I have in the fridge in my tuna, so tonight it was tarragon and parsley. I also added horseradish, spicy brown mustard, light mayo, Tabasco, 2 hard boiled eggs, red onion, garlic, and S&P. Delish!
Now off to the couch for my blunt and Chester's fries!

I make the rules!

We are going to be great friends

I would never leave

My feast last night

Peach cooks steamed salmon and zucchini 'fries'! It's too bad my feast didn't end there. I hate waking up in the morning with Cheez-its crumbs in my bed. Sux!
But last night's meal was really delish- and really simple! For the salmon, I brushed it with olive oil, S&P, and chopped fresh rosemary from the courtyard. I rigged a foil packet for the fish, and topped it with lemon juice and Marsala wine, then three lemon slices. After sealing the foil, I cooked the salmon for 10 mins on a stovetop grill pan. This steams the fish while still leaving it pink in the center. Buttery tender flaky deliciousness was the final product!
For the zucchini fries, I cut them into sticks, and tossed them in olive oil. In a large ziplock bag, I put some breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, S&P, chopped fresh oregano (this is key!), and garlic powder. I tossed a couple of zucchini sticks in the bag at a time, coating them with my breading. I baked them on an unlined baking sheet at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, flipped them over, and cooked them for another 15. The 'fries' were paired with a creamy horseradish dip I whipped together at the last minute: plain nonfat yogurt, light mayo, S&P, and of course, plenty of horseradish. It was the prefect accompaniment to the oven baked zucchini, and it was lowfat too!
