WIAW - Asparagus Love & New Food Discoveries!

Good WIAW to all you fine people across the globe.
Jen is of course the hostess of this fun and hunger inducing party. Check out her awesome blog, wacky humour and yummy recipes here.


Onto my day of food...

Breakfast - My favourite breakfast of all time. Asparagus with eggs. To be precise, pan fried asparagus with 1 egg/2 egg whites and topped with a blop of salsa.



I may have an unhealthy addiction to asparagus



Unpictured is my morning coffee fix with ALMOND milk. In the past few months I have converted from trim milk to rice milk and now to almond milk and I think I am in love. In the past I tried almond milk and it was soooo disgusting. I had been reading all my favourite food bloggers raving about almond milk and I just thought they were all bonkers! Until I came across Almond Breeze! YUMMM!

Moving onto lunch, on Sunday I prepared my weekday lunches by knocking up a batch of quinoa 'fried rice' I adapted the recipe from one of my favourite websites of all time. (my version just included a frozen pack of asian greens because I ran out of fresh veggies)
This was actually my first time trying quinoa and I LIKE it... a lot :) 



My tummy was getting a tad rumbly mid afternoon so I prepared one of my squeeze tubes of tomato soup. A few people asked about these last week and I think they are pretty new to Australia. They look to be condensed tomato soup (and other tomato based soups varieties) in a tube. You just squeeze the contents into a mug and fill with boiling water. It tastes pretty good to me, so if you like tomato soup and if you can find it. Give it a try. I am loving them because they are easy to make, portable and perfect for work!



For dinner I was feeling pretty lazy after a big day at work so I just cut up an onion, popped it into a fry pan with some lean mince, added some frozen spinach (I bagged and froze a bunch of spinach after a bumper garden crop), an egg and 100g of feta. 


I divided the mixture among ramekins and topped with puff pastry. Into the oven until the pastry was crispy and dinner was served!


I finished my day with a cornetto...


It was a bit of an indulgence but oh so yummy!


I think the boy agrees :)



To finish my WIAW, let me leave you with this pretty bunch of roses! 
Thanks so much for reading! I love reading the comments that you lovely people leave :)

  5. I'm obsessed with asparagus! My favorite way to prepare it is by roasting it in the oven w/ olive oil and s&p. So simple, but so delicious!
