Red Rubies Salad

>
>
This  was all the food I consumed today (in two stages). I am surprised with how little food I get through the day sometimes without feeling hungry. Just a few short years ago, this would have been nothing but an appetizer for me 🙂
The great thing is that by eating a bit less quantity and a lot more health-conscious, I have stayed at the exact weight from February when I started with my “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” Meal Plan, when I shed 28 lbs in one month.
It took me a while to get used to all those salad and fruits on a daily basis, but now I don’t want to miss them anymore. It also took a bit getting used to some of the other adjustments (mostly the absence of lots of refined sugar), but now I fully enjoy my way of healthier eating and therefore healthier living) 🙂

A simple  pasta salad will, more often then not, hit the spot for a simple yet satisfying meal.
And if you add some fruits to it, culinary bliss will be achieved with a minimum of fuss and expense 🙂

Use any protein or vegetable to replace the bologna and Swiss cheese, such as shrimp, crab meat, chicken, roast beef and/or any vegetable and cheese at hand.

Salad. That’s It…….

>
>
Today  is one of the few days when I don’t feel like cooking at all. I had store-bought brownies and coffee for breakfast, I will have Brie sandwiches for dinner and my lunch was this simple, albeit delicious and sexy, salad.
Conclusion: Even without the pleasure of cooking every single day, I will survive 🙂

Bucatini, Bologna, Tomato, Asiago & Egg ” Midnight Snack In Simpleland “

.
.
Yesterday  I had a very long workday without lunch or dinner. I finally came home at 9.00pm (I left the house at 5.00am, after two hours of walking Bella, breakfast, checking e-mail, etc) .
First thing’s first, so I poured myself a glass of merlot and sat down to relax a few minutes before I wanted to move on to do what needs to be done. However, I woke up three hours later at around midnight, because Bella brutally stubbed me with her nose, demanding to finally be taken on her walk. When we got back it was past 1.00am and I was famished. I wanted to have something quick, uncomplicated, substantial and tasty, but not too heavy or fatty. A quick inspection of the fridge and cup board revealed, amongst other goodies:
Bucatini, salted butter, bologna, aged asiago, greek yoghurt, eggs, tomatoes and scallions.
Usually and traditionally, one would saute the bologna and tomatoes in fat before adding the other ingredients.
But I wanted to have a different, “fresher” taste. So, here is how it went:
I cooked the pasta, drained it (reserved some of the cooking water). I chopped the tomatoes, sliced the scallions, grated the asiago, whisked the eggs with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Then I mixed all the ingredients over low heat including a bit of the cooking water and cooked it until the eggs set. The result was a revelation of how the addition or absence of one single cooking step (sauteing) can completely alter the taste and texture of a dish. This version is actually my new favorite when it comes to pasta with bologna. The freshness of the bologna (must be of very good quality) and the slight acidity of the yogurt and raw tomatoes make it a new, much appreciated dish in my arsenal of pasta dishes.

Bon Appetit !   Long Live The Midnight Snack ! 🙂
