happy new year!~

i have not been very good at documenting my eatings as of late. i think i've acquired 50 trillion extra pounds this semester which carried over to the holidays. i really wish i could bike everyday like i did this summer. what a stress reliever. anyway. here is my x-mas eve dinner: a little guac, a little sweet potato, a little carrot and a glass of chianti.

this is from awhile ago--somewhere near the beginning of december. it was not very delicious. it was the box of sloppy joes but i used tomato soup instead of tomato paste so that could explain some of it. i think a better hypothesis would be that i just don't like pre-packaged food items. or that i am picky about fake meat b/c i try not to eat it often. either way i won't be buying it again.

this beauty is a sweet potato from my dad's garden. we have a billion lying around here. they are abnormally huge. some of them like the size of my head. this is a small one.

i tried the fry option--baked (not fried!). but i like it steamed, mashed, and plain much, much better!

this week i've been eating lots of salad w. steamed portabello mushrooms. YUM!

i hope everyone has had a very happy beginning to the new year.

I feel the same way about fake meat as you do. I'm really picky about it. I like sweet potatos both ways. I hope you have a happy new year!
