Meals for busy people

Eek!  It's been two weeks since I last posted.  I  got  an exciting new job at an advertising agency, so between that and my other job, and  taking care of the baby, I'm sorry to say  I've been putting together some pretty boring meals that don't really seem blog-worthy.    But maybe a healthy quick meal is just what someone else might be looking for.  I'll probably be posting a lot of these easy to prepare meals for the next little while until I get used to my new routine.

So here you go, a dinner that is quickly tossed together at the end of a long day:  a big heaping bowl of steamed veggies with pan fried tofu and brown rice in a spicy peanut sauce! Yes, brown rice takes a while to cook, but while it's cooking is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with the baby.

And while I'm at it, how about taking a peek at tomorrow's lunch?  Well, it's actually breakfast and lunch.  Clockwise from the left I've got 2 slices of sprouted grain bread with hazelnut butter, an organic gala apple, Enjoy Life sunbutter crunch bar, brown rice avocado rolls sprinkled with sesame seeds, a small container of Braggs soy sauce, and some plump organic raspberries.  Sushi really isn't difficult to make at all., and  I needed to do something with the extra brown rice I had left from my dinner tonight.  Much to my suprise (and delight) the brown rice didn't fall apart like I thought it would.  I ate one of the ends of the roll because 1.) it wasn't pretty and 2.) I wanted to know if it tasted good.  Yep, it tastes yummy.  I can't wait to have lunch tomorrow!

A new job! How exciting (I hope). Your lunch looks so delicious! I'll have to try brown rice sushi!
