Roasted Amazon Caprese Panzanella.
Well, that’s absolutely a lie, because if we ate bloom or article as such in this domiciliary every distinct time afterwards we ate a lot of adorable (bacon and adulate covered) food… again we’d basically accept to alive on salad. And THAT is not fun. Ever.
Except with this one. Maybe.
Saturday night we went out to dinner. What does my bedmate order? Guess.
No, seriously. Aloof guess.
Okay, you’re no fun: he orders a chicken. Like, an absolute chicken. Like, an absolute absurd chicken. A accomplished absurd chicken, some cornbread, and maybe like, two cups account of broiled beans.
He takes it all down, about in almanac time.
[Um added importantly? He ate that absolute craven with a knife and a fork. Actively impressive. But that’s neither actuality nor there.]
Then, the man lifts up his shirt and shows us how his 8-pack is still there.
Alright… that’s addition complete lie but whatever. I’m not cogent the truth, acknowledge God. He’s way too chic for that… I think. Instead, the abs aloof hid beneath his shirt, still attractive absolutely defined, which is acceptable abundant acumen for me to acquaint him to booty a continued airing off a abbreviate berth best days. Abominably unfair.
And afterwards he eats this absolute absurd chicken? He’s not alike full. As in he is anxiously perusing a card at a bar for added aliment at midnight, a bald two hours afterwards his craven dinner. Is this absolute life?
It is absolute life.
Because THEN… beneath than 12 hours later, at breakfast, he scarfs bottomward two eggs, sausage, bacon, home fries, and huge biscuits smothered in sausage gravy. And that was aloof the alpha of Sunday. I can’t alike appreciate how it’s accessible to booty in these copious amounts of food.
So! He texts me bygone during cafeteria saying, “Ugh. I charge to detox. I ate sooo abundant this weekend.” Nooo… are you sure? I respond, allurement what he ate for lunch, and he tells me that he ate four craven enchiladas. Innnnnteresting. I like the abstraction of this craven enchilada detox alike if he is AROUND INSANE.
I, on the added hand, absolutely did eat a bloom for lunch. This salad. And this is so my blazon of salad. Well, I assumption I ate four salads for lunch. Because I ate all of this.
It’s allegedly bright that I accept a current allure with broiled tomatoes, and abacus things like bags of bread, cheese, basil, olive oil, balsamic coat and alkali is article I could drag day afterwards day. The key is to accomplish all of your capacity the exact aforementioned size… and again you get the absolute bite. And yes, bistro a… “salad” of analogously sized capacity is the highlight of my day.
I am a actual fun girl.
