As always, thanks to Jen at Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday. I for one am kind of happy that the holidays are behind me now and I can get back to normal when it comes to food. Don’t get me wrong, I love the festive food and family dinners, but I’ve also been missing my fruits and vegetables as well.
For breakfast I had a toasted English muffin with a little margarine, a Granny Smith apple (I love the crunch and sour flavour), and strawberry yogurt. I was feeling pretty lazy and was still only half awake so the toaster was the most complicated thing I could manage.
I tried to recreate a dish I had ordered at a restaurant awhile ago for lunch. It was called a Thai chicken flatbread on the menu, and was exactly what it sounded like. For my homemade version I used some frozen pizza dough I had in the freezer. I let it thaw and then added some leftover sauteed chicken, sliced red peppers, a little cheese and some Thai sweet chilli sauce. It actually turned out pretty similar to the restaurant version. It was also incredibly easy to put together since the pizza dough was already made and the chicken was previously cooked. I’ll definitely be making this again.
I’ve been on a bit of a quesadilla kick lately, and I continued it for dinner. My latest version consisted of an ancient grain tortilla with cheese, onions, green peppers, and ham inside. At first I wasn’t sure if the ham would be very good with the other ingredients I put in, but it ended up being pretty tasty. For some reason I was really hungry so I added some trail mix to my meal. I figured the healthy fats from the seeds and nuts would help to make me feel fuller.
Have you ever tried to recreate something you ordered at a restaurant? Tell me about it in the comments.
