WIAW: The Best Bite

Hi there!

Tuesday’s are always my days of sheer exhaustion. I skipped ballet class last night because I desperately needed a nap after an awards ceremony I attended, and I ended up sleeping until ballet class actually started. Whoops. I called in and told them I couldn’t make it because a) I would have been late; b) I was still exhausted. I’ll make up classes next week! If I didn’t have to eat dinner and do homework, I would have tried to sleep until the morning.

Other than my sleepiness, yesterday was lovely. And today is also lovely because I’m joining Jenn’s WIAW party!

I don’t know about you, but I eat my food sort of meticulously. Not in a pick-apart-my-food way, but in an I-wanna-get-that-perfect-bite way. I’ve talked about food ratio problems before, and this WIAW digs into similar details. There are always those bites that just have the perfect amount of everything and the perfect textures. Anyone else agree??

Thus, here are some of my recent eats + descriptions of the perfect bite from each!

Breakfasts

Hot banana oats and Greek yogurt with sunflower seed butter

Best bite: The end of the bowl when there is a lot of sunflower seed butter left (since I save the best for last), a little bit of yogurt, and the oats are cooled and doughy.

Lunches

(From the weekend)

Purple sticky rice (no coconut milk in this batch), Laotian sausage, scrambled eggs + green beans. Eaten the Laotian way: with your fingers 🙂

Best bite: Little bit o’ rice with a bite of that fatty, amazing sausage, followed by a crunchy green bean.

Almond butter and jelly on an English muffin + spinach salad with a HB egg (x2) and a simple dressing (olive oil, S+P, honey— my new favorite dressing!)

Best bite: A spot on the AB&J that had a lot of AB and a lot jelly.

Dinners

Best bite: A piece of creamy curry chicken with a spoonful of the fluffy barley.

Smoked salmon on toast with this honey mustard yogurt dill sauce + same salad

Some kind of fish my mom got from a Chinese buffet + a crapton of spinach (I had other things along with this)

Best bite: Small pice of the fish (it was so salty!) with a LOT of spinach.

Desserts

Mom’s coconut sticky rice with mango

Best bite: Perfect ratio of the creamy rice with the sweet mango.

Peanut butter banana soft serve with cereal for crunch

Best bite: ….The whole dang thing. Except the last bite.

Dried figs with Greek yogurt {recycled photo}

Best bite: What you see above— lots of Greek yogurt and a nibble of the dried fig.

Describing all these perfect bites is making my mouth water.

Happy Wednesday!

So tell me:

What is your perfect bite?
