Friday I'm in Love

For seven days, I'm keeping a food journal of what I eat daily. This is day five.

Friday nights are a festive time in my family. My father and sister come home, and we usually eat better than we do on weekdays when it's only my mom and me. Today my mom made xian bing, or Chinese meat pies for dinner.

For the filling we used fresh chives from our herb garden. The chives were really the star in this dish, with their sweet, mild onion taste. Dipping them in Chinese rice vinegar, the xian bing was delicious, as expected.

BREAKFAST: bowl of plain yogurt with cereal and granola
MORNING SNACK: a glass of green smoothie and a piece of dark chocolate
LUNCH: ravioli with tomato sauce and a kit kat bar
SNACK I: strawberries
SNACK II: tortilla chips and salsa
DINNER: one and a half xian bing, or Chinese meat pies and polenta
