|I'm on the left, Mollie's on the right. |
Our friend Kate's in the middle.
Yes, I'm short.
Again, there's some similarities. I, like Mollie, eat some times. I also read sometimes.
(as you may know, I also run a bit).
But there's differences as well.
Mollie is a foodie, packing her blog with examples of all the great things she's baked, broiled, stir-fried, etc. She's pretty talented.
I'm talented also. I destroy cookware regularly.
Earlier this week, Mollie noted that our mutual coach had chastised her for not eating enough vegetables. In response, she posted images (all appealing) of her normal dinner, which was packed with veggie goodness. Along with instructions on how she prepared it that included scary words like "saute" and "pan-steam" and "finely chopped almonds" and "kale."

Well, Mollie, there's a different world out there. Here's how we non-foodies do it.
This is my kitchen. Note that I have two microwaves. I use microwaves all the time, while the oven and stove each get used once a week (for cooking the week's supply of meat and hardboiling eggs. Hence, two microwaves. I can bake a potato and nuke a bag of frozen veggies simultaneously. It's pure awesome.
Carbs? Sure. I got carbs. See below.
|Carbs the first - potatoes|
|Carbs the second (apples and bananas)|
|Where are my veggies? All in the freezer.|
|All about the coconut water.|
As for my "non-cook's" version of Mollie's Bowl O'Dinner, here you go. Hers undoubtedly tastes better; mine has the advantage of speed and less stuff to clean.
Mollie uses seasonings. I do also. Salt and pepper (what else is there?).
|Pepper shaker and woefully inadequate decorative salt shaker.|
|Now that, THAT is a salt shaker, my friends.|
Step 1: remove ingredients from fridge and cupboard. They include butter, bag of frozen veggies, can of salmon, and salt
Yes, this is actually several steps, but I didn't take enough photos.
The possibilities are infinite, BTW. You can have frozen veggies and precooked steak, frozen veggies and pre-cooked chicken, frozen veggies and eggs....More salt, or even MORE SALT. You're limited only by Noah's ark, your checkbook, and your salt shaker.
Mollie, eat your herb encrusted artichoke heart out.
