My first meal of the post is actually one I had at the Boston airport on the way back from Iceland.
My first meal at home was just about the most basic breakfast ever. But it had never tasted so good before! I tried to find oatmeal in Finland, but as you will learn from my Finland recap, that kind of failed.
Note: You can use however much or little of the ingredients you like or even substitute ingredients. Think of this as guidelines instead of an actual recipe.
A handful of mixed lettuce leaves
A handful of fresh spinach
A handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
Half an avocado, sliced
1/3 cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed if using canned
A handful of dried cranberries
1 oz goat cheese, crumbled
Fresh dill, to taste (I like LOTS!)
5 slices of cucumber, sliced in half
2 baby carrots, grated
1 hard-boiled egg, sliced
A big blob of hummus (or salsa of your other favorite salad topping)
Umm, toss ingredients together? I think that's pretty self explanatory. ;)
Other random meals:
Ever tried a grilled banana and avocado sandwich? No??? Time to fix that. ;)
Grilled Banana and Avocado Sandwich
One banana, sliced in half and then each half sliced lengthwise
1/2 an avocado, sliced
2 slices bread of choice (I used oatmeal bread), toasted
Place your sliced banana in a pan and turn on heat to medium-low.
Katie suggested letting them sit for a bit, but I simply couldn't wait and ate one straight out of the oven!
Brownies were also consumed in this form:
Oh dear, this got long. Sorry guys - you're probably bored to tears, if you're still reading that is! I'll let you go now. Just promise me one thing - you'll make Katie's pancakes!!
I'll be back next time with another recap! Love you guys!!
